nsfw, or why the differences between men and women are so attractive.

i’m a pretty regular follower of all things twitter; in fact, i actually like my twitter more than my facebook+all other social media combined. one of the people who i follow, a lady whom is like me, in that she is similarly minded in her pro-women, pro-freedom type of thinking posted a link to her tumblr, which had a link to this photo:

take a moment. look again. [granted, when you first encounter the photo, you pretty much just see ass.] but if you take a moment and really really look at it, you see that there is so so much more going on.

this photo definitely has a hint of sexuality to it, and you could even argue that the sexual nature of the photo is its main intent. however, that’s not what i get from it. if you look past the naked bootie, and look at the man in the photo, while he is shirtless, he’s wearing pants. and he’s not grabbing her ass in a proprietary dominant sort of way – don’t get me wrong, he is definitely groping her – but the way he does it, its like he’s in awe of her body, and that, his awe, is why i find this photo so enthralling.

maybe there is a hint of envy in me –  i mean, i sure wish someone was grabbing me like that – but also there is a sense of awareness i get from the photo. in looking at the details of the photo, seeing the male arm with its hair and sinew and just everything that is manly, it makes me really get why i am so attracted to men. they’re just so different from me, from everything that i, as a strong independent female who knows and appreciates her body, am familiar with. and i’m fucking obsessed with it. i love how strong and excited he looks in this photo, holding onto her body, almost like he is thankful he gets to touch something so perfect (which he should be).

this photo, whether you find it grotesque, trashy, erotic, or beautiful, is everything that is perfect and right between the differences in men and women. and i’m damn thankful for it.
