    I’m an artist, I have drawn a lot of nude models and never once did my mind go in that direction, it’s strictly work. I have really never thought-about-thinking-like-that till right now. Art is art. And I think the fact that he told you in a text proves that he doesn’t see it as a big deal – it’s work related.

    I’m a girl photog and have thought about going into Boudoir. It’s a very lucrative genre, and I imagine that is why he is considering it.

    BUT. I gotta admit… if I were you, I’d be uncomfortable. Along the lines of hell no uncomfortable. Not out of fear of anything happening (most girls are taking these pics for husbands and would freak if the photog tried anything), but just the notion of his profession revolving around sexytime photos of other women. It’s weird?

    Talk about it :/

    @MrsOrange: I’d be fine with it because I trust my SO to be faithful and professional in his workplace.

    @MrsBee2B:  Correct. I am married to a photographer and if I had boudoir shots done, he would likely critique the shots. As far as the jealousy issues, if it bothers you too much and is going to become an issue, it is probably not worth the money.
