I’m a proud card-carrying member of the Sex(t)y Selfie Club. For all the potential in- fused in the tiny supercomputer that we hold in our hands every single day, I find it amusing that the de facto thought for most of the population was “Cool.. an inbuilt camera! Let’s take dick pics and send nudes...”
With the ubiquity of ring lights, mobile tripods and camera filters, it’s almost ridiculous how easy it is to become your very own model / photographer / art director / lighting crew / retoucher. However just like the adage - it’s not the tool you have but how you use it, if you’re still taking a close-up of sweaty boobs under fluorescent lights, owning the latest gigapixel mobile camera known to mankind doesn’t guaran- tee a Top 10 listing in their spank bank.
That’s why we’re taking a look at five factors involved in how to take a sexy selfie so you can easily rival a Playboy centerfold from the comfort of your bedroom.
1. Safe Sex(t)
We’re big believers that sexy is a mindset and a sext can be art. Not only is some- one out there waiting in anticipation to have a glimpse of the secret you, it’s a fun way to celebrate your very own body and sensuality.
Unfortunately worrying that your nudes might end up leaked to the rest of the world is a legitimate fear. Anxiety is a major killjoy that also translates in front of the camera when it comes to feeling sexy and confident. While there’s no guarantee that your sexts will never see the light of day beyond your partner’s phone, there are ways to mitigate these risks. Here are some main tips:
• Always assume your photos are public: Although it may not be the fault of ei- ther partner, just always assume that whatever you put out will be seen by someone else. It happens to the best of us, especially if you’re a celeb, so don’t let it get you too paranoid! This actually helps you decide and control how much you want to share.
