    I guess it would depend on how racey the pictures were.  I don’t know if your going to have kids in the future but with the internet people keep getting busted for things they did in the past.  If you’re ok with how they are… i say GO FOR IT!  You can show your great grand kids how hot their granny was back in the day.

    I would. Is there any way, if you’re thinking about it, that she could crop most/all of your face out of the photos? Or use any that she has that aren’t of your face?

    Hells no.

    IF I did boudoir photos they would be for my DH’s eyes alone. I don’t care if they touch me up and spackle me with photoshop, no thank you.

    Here is my rule of thumb, if you don’t want it on the front page of the New York Times don’t put it in print OR if you don’t want your kids looking at it 20 years from now don’t put it in print.  That goes for online also.  If you don’t mind those things then go for it, if you would mind those things, then don’t.

    I personally wouldn’t. The thing I hate most about boudoir shots is how frequently they get blogged. A few of my friends have done them by the same photographer who does not give you a choice of whether or not you want them blogged or put in a portfolio or ad or not – she will just do it.  I was looking at my friends blogged boudoir pics and just happened to scroll through a few pages and saw more than I ever wanted to of a handful of people I know. It was so weird. 

    Boudoir pics are supposed to be for your (and FI) eyes only – not for the world to see! I’d never allow them to be used any other way personally. Any creeper on the internet can see them. I’d be paranoid my boss or someone would come across them some how! It wasn’t that hard for me to come across pics of other people I knew…

    I wouldn’t do it because I wouldn’t want someone possibly wanking off to a picture that I intended for my future husband.

    Wow! How awesome for you and how flattering! It’s ultimately up to you, but you’re asking what we would do, and personally, I wouldn’t do it. Once something like that is out there, you can’t ever get it back.

    If you’d like to take advantage of the opportunity, however, I agree with what others said, that maybe she could use a photo that doesn’t really show your face?

    @vorpalette:  Yeah, are there any pictures that don’t show your face?  I would only allow it if it were under those circumstances, especially for the advertisements.
