Do you have the balls? Or rather, do you have the ovaries, the guts, the courage? Do you dare do something outrageous and still stand tall? Do you have the balls to post a Christmassy naked photo of your ball(s) on your blog?
This isn’t the last Sinful Sunday of the year, but honestly I can’t even get my head around the fact that it’s the second to last. I intended to join in with Sinful Sunday so much more this year, but after getting outed I spent a long time too scared to join in – with the result that my erotic photography hasn’t improved as much as I hoped it might.
This photo makes me smile, though – I like its warmth and blurry, almost abstract, imperfection. Christmas is taking an awful lot of courage this year, and it was wonderful to stop for just a moment to take this image and remember that deep down I am brave enough to be myself.
