Posing questions

Posing questionsThis is going to be tricky to word, but here goes -

With the view point of the camera and the open legged pose I think this is a picture designed to arouse (successfully Blush) and is therefore erotic, but not pornographic. I don't think it would ever make the pages of a M & S underwear brochure or a straight fashion shoot. Had she been naked in this pose, to most, the image would be classed as pornographic.

In a slightly more demure pose this could easily be an underwear advertisment, but it's all in the pose and what the pose suggests, scantily clad and legs spread suggests something more inviting than the purchase of a new pair of pants!
It's whats 'implied' by the pose/image that makes the difference, a girl sucking an ice lolly could be just a girl sucking an ice lolly or could mean much more depending on the pose/context and facial expression.

I've now dug a big hole for myself and I'm off to hide in it!

Good picture, by the way.
