An Open Invitation to Reveal the Real You

We’d like to extend an open invitation to all artists, writers, photographers and creative people of every stripe to be part of our new blog, F Stop: Expose the Naked I.  Our goal is to create a space for erotic artists working in a variety of media to reveal themselves and promote their work in a sensually and intellectually stimulating way.

It is the nature of erotic art to expose hidden truths about sexuality through photographs, paint, or words, but in the process we are also exposing ourselves.  At F-Stop we’d like to explore the ways we reveal ourselves both literally “in the flesh” and through our art.  Beyond that, we have no restrictions; each guest blogger can explore this as creatively, playfully or seriously as s/he chooses.

Because F-Stop was originally inspired by our own author photographs, we’re planning to inaugurate the blog with a “naked I” series which focuses on the concept of nudity and revelation.  Here are a few possibilities for your post: you may feature a photograph with a short blurb describing/explaining/questioning something about the image and/or a piece of your writing that goes along with the image in some way; you can just send an excerpt from your written work with or without an author photograph that is especially revealing; or send artwork or something else that pushes the boundaries of our imaginations.  We’ll also include a short bio with links to your website and blog, so this will be a good way to get your name (and other parts of you) out there to new eyeballs.

Btw, a “naked” image doesn’t necessarily mean a full-body boudoir portrait if you’re not comfortable with that–an eye, a hand, lips, a glimpse of shoulder all qualify!

We hope you’ll consider exposing your “Naked I”!

  1. Looking forward to it!

  2. I feel very naked at the moment, with my first novel recently exposed to the world.

    Plus I have underwear pictures.

    But yours are nicer, imho. : )

  3. P.S. No slight intended to my marvelous photographer–you know what I mean. ; )

  4. OK…now that I’m on this self-indulgent excursion, what do I do next??

  5. Congrats, all, on this new venture!

    I would like to write a story for this post but I don’t have a blog, a website, or a pic., and I may not want my name attached to it. Still a possibility? How would I go about it?
