Do-It-Yourself Porn (this was originally posted by Domina Tricks)

Let the games begin!
Maybe your boyfriend or girlfriend has hinted they'd like you to take some saucy web cam pictures of yourself. And maybe you're nervous, but deep down part of you just might be intrigued. Well, if you're going to get down and dirty and snap photos of yourself in your birthday suit, have a look at our tips for baring all...

Why "Do-It-Yourself Porn?"
Anyone can go out and buy a porn mag or spend hours surfing the internet for some "quality" porn only to be stopped at every hopeful point by sites that claim to be free but then demand your credit card details before you can see anything interesting. Hrmph. We hate that. Isn't it time to take some initiative? You might think your boyfriend or girlfriend wouldn't be impressed by any sexy photos of you if they're used to seeing so-called "professional" or even well-done "amateur" porn. Well, you're wrong. They don't know the air-brushed models - they know you. You're real. And real is sexy. Plus, learning to take erotic photos of yourself should remind you that you are a sexy and sensual being. You don't need to look like a model, an athlete, or a porn star to be sexy. Sexy is a state of mind - and with the right imagination you can boost your self-esteem and, if you're comfortable with it, you can make your boyfriend or girlfriend feel like their birthday, Valentine's and Christmas all came at once this year...

For Web Cam or Digital Cam Photos

Lighting
Lighting can be tough, particularly if you have a very basic web cam, but basically, the more light, the better. Afternoon shots are always nice, with the sun streaming in. If it is possible to have all your shades up and still not be seen by your neighbors, go for it. If not, turn on a lot of lamps (bring more into the room) and light some candles. Whatever you do, don't pose with the windows behind you, or you won't get anything but your outline. However, if you're after a silhouette thing, than that's the ticket. Try your best to have a plain background behind you. Remember, the attention should be on you and you don't want to distract anyone with a mess behind you so they spend more time asking, "Hey, what's going on with your couch? Are those new covers?" or "Wow, your kitchen's looking mighty messy--are those leftover pizza crusts?"


Timing Is Everything
Frankly, the extent of your poses/success has to do with your timing. If your camera has a timer, use it! If you can, set it to a delay of 15 or so seconds so you have time to position yourself and make sure it's the shot you want. Stand back just a bit further than what you want as most web cams and digital cameras zoom in a bit upon taking the photo.

Less Is More
Porn mags almost always features guy or girl spread-eagled on the page. By all means, if that's what you're into, then go for it. But, if you're a beginner, you might want to stroll down the "arty" or "classy" web cam pic avenue before you go hog-wild. Besides, being mysterious is many times a lot sexier than revealing all. It's what they don't see that just might really drive them the craziest. Strategically placed props, bits of clothing, sheets, poses where you show just enough to get them aroused--these are the things that will make your photos that much more "special"

Props
If you're kinda kinky and just happen to have lots of toys and gadgets hanging around, then you can go all out.

Handcuffs:
Handcuff one hand to the bed (make sure you have the key), dangle them in your hand, hold them in your teeth, put them next to you on the bed, the possibilities are endless...

Whips:
Spread it out across your chest, hold it suggestively in your hand, wrap it around your neck, or lie down next to it.

Bondage strips :
All of the above!

Scarves:
All of the above!

Lingerie:
Wear it straight or wear it underneath something else and reveal bits of it. Or if you just "happen" to be hanging out or coming out of it a bit, all the better...

Masks:
I'm not talking about scary Halloween masks here, but something cute like a cat mask or a mask with a Mardi Gras feel might get you both feeling festive

Thong/G-string:
Try a side-view if you want to be a tease, or bend over if you're brave.

Speedos:
Try a side, front, or back view! Hell, try all three!

Silk boxers:Get comfortable and pull 'em down a bit...or, if you're a guy, allow your soldier to make a salute!
You in a picture holding some handcuffs, or a whip, that just adds an extra charge to your photos. You don't even have to be doing anything with the items--just holding them is enough to get those juices flowing. Lingerie, a thong, speedos, silk boxers, all of that will serve as the spice to your webcam feast. So, what to do if you're not a whip-cracking, hand-cuff toting dominatrix or a silk boxer/lingerie sort of gal or fella? No worries. Use what you've got!

Props you never realised you had...


Teddy:
A strategically placed teddy bear or stuffed animal hiding your privates is sure to get your significant other's attention.

Sheets:
Most people don't realise how sexy just the insinuation of nudity, rather than actual nudity, is. If you're not comfortable with taking entirely nude photos, you don't have to. You can still get erotic pics, without baring all. Spread out a sheet on the floor, the bed, the couch, or wherever. Then tangle yourself up in that sheet or use another one on top. Methodically choose which bits of yourself you want to expose. The length of a leg, particularly from the hip down, is quite tasty, as it will give the illusion of you not wearing any underwear, whether you are or aren't. If you are still wearing undies, hitch 'em up so the sheet covers them or it'll spoil the illusion! Another good one is to have one whole side of you fully exposed, from your toes up your calve, thigh, waist, chest, shoulder's arm. Stretch out on your back, or on your side, and keep the sheet on top if of you if you want, but stick out your hip/leg, and move the sheet so your entire side is showing.

Cowboy boats/thigh-high boots/high-heels:
Does your special someone have a shoe fetish? Lots of people do. If so, have fun and get a shot with either you wearing nothing put the boots, or cut off the shot so it stops just below your privates and you just see leg and accompanying footwear.

Spray bottle:
Let the wet T-shirt contest begin!

Your favourite old T-shirt:
And nothing else!

A towel:
Wrapped around you, just so, and of course, nothing else.

An inside joke item:
If you or your honey are into cooking, wear nothing but an apron or pose with a spatula or pot in hand. If you or they are into sports, pose in the picture with a racquet, bat, ball, whatever. Go, team! The point is to make these pictures fun. Funny can be sexy too. You can't be uptight with these. Just go with it. If you or they are an avid reader, place that best selling novel in a provocative area and let the web cam snap it up. Are you a workaholic in the office? Well then snap some pics you wearing nothing but your briefcase or some pseudo file folders/reports. (Watch out for papercuts though - ouch!)

Your vibrator/sex toy:
If you're comfortable with it, no doubt the sight of you actually using your sex toy is enough to make him/her climb the walls with excitement. And honestly, if the object of your affections is a guy, just the sight of you fellating your toy will have him hot and bothered.

Massage oil:
Apply massage oil liberally to your body so that your skin glistens. It's easy, it's sexy, it's fun. Also, a shot of you applying the massage oil, and stroking your body is very much a turn-on.

Aloe:
It's thicker, it's gooey-er and it will make your skin shine without getting your sheets oily
Positions


The Chair Straddle:
That's right, you grab a nice chair, turn it around, and straddle that baby. You can be fully nude and use the chair to block out certain areas, or you can be in various states of undress. If you're feeling flexible, or daring, sit in the chair, then arch your back or lean back all the way so your head and torso are aiming towards the floor. Guys, this is where you can flex those muscles and extend that back. You can keep your "package" hidden or exposed, it's up to you.

Lover's Crawl
Get down on your knees and start crawling towards the web cam. You can do this full-on, or face towards the side. The side shot can be quite sexy, highlighting the hips, a bit off the bum, the thighs, and part of the chest. Crawl slowly, and sensually. Crawling can be done on the floor or on the bed. The floor might be sexier if your bed isn't that firm! Guys, this is not just for gals. Crawling is sexy, period, no matter who is doing it. Put on your best "come hither look/pout" and crawl on! And please, by all means, put a blanket or something soft on the floor. It often takes many tries to get that photo "just right" and if you're crawling on the rug, you will get rub burn on your knees and you'll regret it in the morning.

A little on the side:
Lay down on the floor, or bed, on your side a la Kate Winslet posing for Leonardo in Titanic. Yes, that movie was cheesy, but come on, that was a steamy little position, for either sex.

Peek-A-Boo:
Play full-on peek-a-boo with your chest, bum, and privates. Lift up your shirt to just expose the bottoms of your breasts, or if you're a guy, catch yourself in a "shirt half off, half on" pose. Or take a photo of yourself just starting to pull down your pants/boxers/panties. Or, you could unbutton a shirt all the way, just allowing part of the chest to be exposed. If you are a chick with long hair, let your hair flow down over your breasts, sort of hiding your nipples. It's a classic shot.

The Sharon Stone:
Guys and gals can both pull a "Sharon Stone" and "sit" (legs crossed or uncrossed) so your guy and gal will be looking for a magnifying glass to get a closer view of your hidden family jewels.

Limbo in Ecstasy:
Again, get down on your knees, but don't crawl. This time you, spead open your legs (with or without something hiding your privates) and then either position yourself so your shins/tops of feat are are touching the floor and you lean back as if you're doing the limbo, as low as you can go, chest and arms stretched in ecstacy. Or you can simply stretch your arms up, piling your hair on top of your head, or run your fingers through your hair.

The Strip Tease:
It's all about the build-up. It's probably more fun if your sweetie is either there with you in person, or online while you send these photos across, as you can get their instantaneous reaction, but it's still fun if your loved one is far awaqy and they get them via e-mail. Send a photo of just your lips, perhaps you licking them. Then, strategically take photos of you doing a strip-tease. First, off comes the shirt, then the pants, then take steamy photos in your boxers or panties/bra, etc., in all sorts of positions, until finally you're naked, or close to. If you really want to keep the momentum, create a striptease slideshow on your computer and when your honey comes over, watch the slideshow together and use it as inspiration.

The Graffiti Artist:
If you're a guy, grab some whipped cream or edible chocolate paint and write your sexy one's name across your chest, or down your stomach towards your pelvis. If you're a lady, you can also use the whipped cream or chocolate paint, or grab a tube of lipstick and write your special one's name across your breasts or your stomach or ass.

Ready & Waiting:
There's nothing like photographing yourself as if you're just waiting for you boy/gal to get home, or as if they're in the room with you and taking pics for you. If you're a guy, take a photo of yourself standing in front of the bed, or kneeling/crawling on the bed towards your invisible lover. Or lay down on your back, in position for your sweetie to climb on board. If you're a gal, try wearing a skirt, flip it up a bit and bend over a bed/chair with your G-string/undies pulled halfway down your thighs.

When I Think About You I Touch Myself:
Oh yes. Now, some people might get shy or embarrassed or genuinely not like what I'm about to say, but more often than not, people get a thrill out of watching other people touch themselves. Many men and women have a fantasy of having their boyfriend/girlfriend masturbate in front of them, so now's your chance to make his/her dreams come true. Caressing and fondling yourself, whether it be your chest/bum, that's all good. But if you really want to drive them crazy, full-on genital masturbation is likely the way to go. If you're not fully comfortable doing this, just hinting about it can be enough. If you're wearing a bra/panties, just stick a few fingers or your whole hand down your panties. If you're just wearing your boxers or jeans, stick your hand down your pants, to give the illusion of masturbation. Don't worry - their imagination will take over from there!
Where It's At
Last but not least, the where could really spice things up as well. You're fairly limited if your web cam is set to your desktop computer, so the bed/floor area is probably the extent of your location list. But if you have a laptop/notebook or a digital camera, you can experiment a little more. After the bedroom, try the living room, the kitchen (oh the things you can do on the kitchen table), maybe even the bathroom, but don't get too excited and go too close to the shower/bathtub with all those cords! No electrocution, please!

Trust Factor
Before you get all carried away, you have to think about how much you trust the person you'll be sharing these photos with. If you haven't been together that long, you might want to wait. Pictures like these could have long-term consequences. The easiest thing to do would be to just store your nudie stash (very carefully!) on your computer and invite the lucky guy/gal over for a special viewing. With the internet being so speedy and popular these days, the last thing you want to do is e-mail your pics to someone with a mean streak who will be madly posting your pics online at porn sites like a crazy mofo to get back at you if you two break up badly.

Sharing With Online Chat Buddies
This is a very personal and difficult choice. Perhaps you have been chatting to a seemingly nice person online and you've exchanged regular photos. Perhaps things have gotten a bit flirty and you've even had a bit of cybersex. Keep in mind, the move to exchange nude photos is a big one and not one that should be taken lightly. They might be trustworthy and discreet, or they might be chatting to you while in a room with 50 of their horny guy/girl friends who are all waiting to take a gander at your bare bum. If you decide to take the risk and share, to be on the safer side, take the photos cutting your head off in the shot. Just go with you from the neck down. That way, if he/she turns out to be a lying freak, at least people off the street can't say, "Hey, haven't I seen your work online?" And that way, you'll still be able to run for public office without fear of people finding your online pics of you in your birthday suit.

Self Defense
If other people regularly use your computer, or might occasionally use it, take precautions. Either make sure you have passwords for everyone, or, name your folder of nudie pics something really boring like "Moby Dick Thesis." And don't forget to open up your photo/imaging program and open up several tame photos. Your computer remembers the last several pics you opened up, so anyone could just open PhotoShop and click unsuspectingly on a picture of your bare ass. Don't let it happen to you!

Size Does Matter
Remember, size does matter. Many web cams automatically save your pics as bitmaps (.bmps) which take up more space than .gifs or .jpgs. So import your pics to something like PhotoShop and save them as .gif or .jpg files.

Some After Effects


Black and white/grayscale/Sepia:
It's amazing how much cooler a picture can look just by converting it to black and white. It gives a classy/retro feel. Also, if it's an option for you - try sepia. It makes pics look like fun "back in the olden days" porn - and can also be very warm and classy.

The Write Stuff:
Not thrilled with the idea of writing on yourself with whipped cream, chocolate, or lipstick? It may not be as exciting, but writing sexy/quirkly little text messages in PhotoShop over your naughty bits will drive 'em crazy!

12 Months of Fun:
pick your 12 favourite photos and make a 'calendar' presentation for your honey. 12 great months of you!

Love Is a Puzzle:
Take your favourite photo and cut it into as many reasonable portions as possible and let the special him/her put the pieces back together for a big surprise.
Have Fun & Get Feedback
That all said, don't forget to have fun. If you take yourself too seriously, it's not going to work. Experiment and don't feel like looking stupid, because if you don't like the result, you can delete it, easy as pie. And lastly, don't forget to ask your receiver for their feedback. What could you do that would really turn them on? After getting all this, they should be comfortable enough to tell you. Also, this whole photographic exercise is 100X better if both parties are willing participants. It's all about giving and receiving and equal opportunity! It's obvious what the other person gets out of this, but what do you get out of this? If you're honestly enjoying yourself and feeling sexy and confident, then you're doing it right and for the right reasons.

Happy flashing!
