Yves saint Laurent famously stated “the most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” Now, I know he lived from 1936 – 2008 so was he just a product of his time? As he’s the Were the women in his life hard to stimulate? Was it the circles he ran in or were women generally more tricky to navigate? Shame culture,
It takes me great effort to visit a shop and buy makeup. Putting it on is a nuisance. Washing it off even more so. And then my nose gets grumpy as makeup carries a scent, and my skin has a paddy because it’s too sensitive for even the gentlest of products.
Passion, even with my current lack of partnered sex, is far easier to come by. (Pun not intended, but I’ll happily take it!) There is no shortage of online stores, many of which can be delivered the next day. The scent that lingers afterwards is happily received by greedy nostrils. Setting the scene is a slip into my fantasies, cleaning up after quick and easy. And the only time I have problems after is if I foolishly use lube that contains Glycerine, which I know affects my balance and can cause problems. But when I hit the right spot, when a lover gets me off, when friends get my heart racing and my juices flowing…
Now, it’s safe to say that I’m not a fan of makeup. It’s also a fair conclusion to make that I enjoy sex. And when I apply makeup I feel I look like a pantomime Dame. But when I adorn my cheeks with the flush of lust…
Well, that’s a beauty all of its own.
Thank you for joining me for February PhotoFest 2023. This is my fourth time joining the month long celebration of erotic and sensual photography. If you’re enjoying it please do go and check out the previous years: 2019 was an incomplete month. I skipped 2020 due to not blogging at the time but 2021 was a joy to plan and complete, in spite of lockdowns. 2022 was a little more relaxed behind the scenes, but jam packed with pictures and memories I love.
From the story of how the barefoot sub became the woman she is today, to toy reviews, with a hefty dose of contemplation, a sprinkling of erotica and a LOT of nudity in between, you can be sure to find something to tickle your fancy at A Leap Of Faith.
