This is an attempt at a natural portrait. People always want to see “natural portraits” of models. Not sure why. If you want to see a real girl, go outside and chat up the towel girl at your gym. I think maybe people are confused about why they buy pornography anymore. Is it a fantasy or reality that they seek?
I think it might have something to do with fatigue. We all put on sexual displays to lure mates. Makeup, digital retouching, lighting, CGI etc, have all made it more difficult to see what you’re really getting. I think people get tired of being bombarded with images of perfection. I think perhaps, they might also get tired of being constantly sexually stimulated.
Advertisers spend a lot of money on figuring out how to subtly appeal to your sexual desires to get you to buy things. I wonder if we wall get tired of having our sexual triggers constantly pulled.
