It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Picture Perfect” who wanted to know what guys thinks of boudoir photos. “if they were in a long term relationship with a woman, would they like to be surprised by a spread of professional, tasteful boudoir and/or nude photos of their lady?” Keep reading to see whether she decided to have photos taken of herself and what her boyfriend thinks.
It certainly gave me something to think about, and even though the pictures are more for myself, I thought the respectful thing to do was ask my boyfriend his thoughts on the matter. I just simply said to him, “What do you think of boudoir photos?” His response was, “I dunno, never thought about before. Why, you thinking about it?” I said “Yeah, I was thinking I’d like to do it for my birthday.” He said, “Oh, ok. Well, if that’s something you want to do I’m cool with it.” I nearly laughed out loud, because I hadn’t even asked him if he was ok with it, I just asked what he thought in general. So, his response reinforced those of the men on the board, that the issue with boudoir photos is more about someone else seeing their girl undressed.
But I’m glad I asked him about it, and I’m glad he’s cool with it, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to book my photo shoot later this summer. Thanks everyone for your insight and for showing me a side that I hadn’t thought of at all. You guys are great!
Thanks for the update, and have fun!
