Dreaming of Mr. Grey in…
If my assistant reads this post she will be really mad!
Not because of what I write or the pictures I use, but she had to tolerate me today for 4 hours as every newsletter, PR piece, Product news which was coming in read “50 shades of Grey”…and I was struggling to understand what the hype was. AND I made sure everyone heard my thoughts!
Nudity, sexual awareness, eroticism and promiscuity has existed for centuries! If you read and watch movies from the 18th century (remember Marie Antoinette?) you will see the drastic change in the origin of sex from 13-14th century to 18th century.
So if we have studied about it, and historians are researching it everyday- then why is a movie with bondage, power and infatuation such a popular mainstream attraction?
Is it really the sex in the movie..or the lack of it in our lives?
I am intrigued and always up for a discussion on this.
So today..while I was researching my version of 50 shades of Grey..I came across these amazing 20th and 21st century photographers and this my friends is my version of 50 shades of grey..dating back early 1900’s.
My question is when Brassaï decided to shoot nudes, and exhibited it in the gallery in 1920-30’s- would there be as much anticipation…or are we just deprived?
While the birthday suit is always a good option, these are next to nothing sweetness which will help you quench your desire..of whatever sorts!
Happy dreaming of Mr. Grey in these Valentine’s day lingerie!
