So I was really curious about some of the comments made to another Bee’s thread in regard to her decision to share her boudior photos with us. I wanted to create a thread to bring that discussion from her post to one more appropriate for it.
Would you or would you not post boudior photos to the internet (for instance, to WB) and why? Many posters seemed to be upset by another Bee’s choice to share her photos with us and I guess I’d like a better understanding of where these people are coming from.
I personally wouldn’t have a problem posting my photos. Most boudior photos are more covered than when I wear a bikini and I don’t think twice about posting pictures from the beach. I wouldn’t be worried about them coming back to haunt me as I wouldn’t put my name with them and if a potential employer did find them and wouldn’t hire me / fired me because of it – well, I wouldn’t want to work for that sort of person anyway!
Now I completely understand some people’s modesty reasons for not wanting to share but some of the complete opposition to sharing for any reason surprised me!
What does everyone else think?

i definately would post them, bc like you said… i show more in a bikini than i will in boudoir pics. plus i am proud of my body and not shy at all!

I don’t think it’s a big deal at all. As long as the person in the photos has either posted them on here herself or given permission for them to be posted, have at it! What’s the difference if you’re in a bikini or in lacy undies? As long as your “parts” are covered, I don’t see a difference.
As for the thread you’re referring to, I think it’s a bit ridiculous that some ladies got so offended by the pictures. The title clearly states what it is before you click on it!
Edit: Haha Oops, I didn’t even answer your question. I would not post pictures on here of myself, not because I’m worried about people finding them, but because I’m not really comfortable with it. I don’t even like walking around in a bathing suit in front of my family…I can’t imagine letting the internet world seeing my “trouble areas”. 😛 But, I’m not opposed to anyone else choosing to do so!

I’ve wondered the same thing myself, and I’m surprised so many people have posted them here… when I see the posts, I wonder about privacy for the posters. When you post something on WB, it’s there forever, and you can’t take it down. If I really wanted to share my budoir photos, I’d share a link to an online gallery, that way I could take it down at any time later if I decided to. I just don’t think it’s a good idea to share those photos right on WB for the world to see, but that’s me.
EDIT – I have no issues with others posting them, I would just worry about it myself.

@mishelleez: 🙂 I hope you don’t mind me trying to move the discussion off of your thread! I think your pictures are gorgeous and that’s all that should have been discussed there.

i think some people see a difference between wearing a bikini and posting photos of themselves in suggestive clothing in suggestive poses. there is a difference — and there are some people might feel uncomfortable having people other than their significant other or spouse to see those. nothing wrong with either — all a matter of opinion & personal preference.

I would not post them, although I have zero problems with other people deciding to post them. While, Yes, a bikini covers up as much skin as lingerie (sometimes less) it is the intent of the pictures that makes the difference to me. Those are meant to be suggestive poses for your Fiance, I would not want to share them publicly and I know my Fiance would not be ok with me posting them on the internet. But again, thats my reasoning and I can understand the other ladies wanting to show off their hot pictures.

@Mrs.KMM:No thank you. I was thinking about having it deleted just because of the discussion that was going on, I posted them because I wanted to help bees out because I got my ideas from other bees 🙂

i think it’s fine to post them but you have to fully understand that ANYONE can take your pics and post them wherever they want. you lose all control of them once you post.

Personally, I would never do it. I also would not post beach pics or anything of that sort. Here are my reasons:
1. I think the main deterrent for me it the creeper-factor. In the thread you are talking about, a bee posted how a co-worker saw them on her computer screen and made a comment along the lines of “I’m effing tenting it down here”. That kind of stuff is disgusting. The thought of some creeper staring at pictures of me that were meant for my Fiance and whacking it makes me want to scrub my skin off. Its gross and creepy.
2. Fiance would be SUPER PISSED.
3. I am a teacher. Stuff like that can come back to haunt me big time. I dont need questionable pictures of me on the internet where an employer can find them, because school districts search for this kind of stuff when hiring. People are really conservative when it comes to their kids and pictures of me half-naked on the internet could be potentially career-ruining, with or without my name on it. I wont take that chance.
That being said, I have never gone into a boudoir thread and posted about how she shouldn’t post them on the internet. Its a personal choice and I am not going to tell another woman what she can and cannot do with her body.
Oh and mishelleez, your pictures were HOT. lol. I didnt comment in your thread because of the drama.

It’s interesting that you added the bikini angle to this discussion. My co-worker (I only allow a few to see my Facebook) mentioned two pictures I had posted from the beach/boat the other day. I didn’t think twice about posting them. I asked some other friends and they said they would not post bikini pictures. I ended up deleting them. I may feel different when the time comes, but I most likely will not post boudoir pictures on the internet. My reasoning is that I’m taking them with the intention that they are for FH’s eye’s only. Power to the ladies who do post them. They are always so beautifully done.

I would be hesitant to post anything like that online but i can see how people get excited about them and want to share. I am not against anyone who wants to but i don’t think i would personally put them online because really they are just for my husband. maybe i would show them off to my close girl friends if i was excited about them.. but def wouldn’t put them out their for EVERYONE.

I would not post mine. But then again, I won’t be posting my wedding pictures here either, at least not ones with people’s faces in them. It’s a privacy thing.
Even if I weren’t such a private person though, I still don’t think I would post boudior pics online. My ex was a real creep, the kind of guy who would troll boards like this and save photos like a lot I’ve seen here on WB and *ahem* refer to them later.
We used to fight about his porn use all the time, because I hate how degrading to women most of it is, and he used to say stuff like, “Well, I’ll stop looking at porn and just look at [photos that he found on boards and social pages] instead – it’s not degrading when they’re doing it like this! They want the attention, that’s why they post them.”
Ick ick ick. 🙁
It’s obviously a personal choice to post or not post, and what you don’t personally experience may not hurt you, but I genuinely hope for all those who post boudoir photos of themselves that no gross creeper like my ex ever finds your photos and disrespects you the way he would.

No, no, and no. I do have some pictures of me in a bikini on facebook, but I am not making provocative faces or sexual gestures. I am at a beach with a group of friends looking normal, not all done up and in skimpy outfits hoisting my goodies up trying to look sexual. I think the point of a boudoir session is to be sexy and intriging and to do it as a gift for someone you love. I’m not going to bash people who do it, thats their choice, but personally I would never as I know how public these things are and how things can stay forever on the internet. I should add I don’t post ANY personal pics on WB so obviously that makes my choice onesided.
