The C.O. Guide to Boudoir Photography

When done well, boudoir photography creates a special souvenir for a lady to share with her loved one, and cherish herself as she slowly withers and ages. Let’s look at examples of correct and incorrect posing techniques:

Correct: This pose is refined, demure, capturing the subject in a tender moment of relaxation. The coquettish expression conveys a hint of sly mischief: How dare you linger in a lady’s private chambers? it seems to say.

Incorrect: Overly revealing poses are to be avoided, as they may result in later embarrassment to the subject, angry unannounced visits from husbands and boyfriends, and in some jurisdictions, legal action requiring a hasty relocation to Europe.

Sender-inner Laurie D. says “Godiva the greyhound was feeling the winter chill so she got a coat which she thought was very weird at first, and then she LOVED it! Snuggly coats for the win!”

I Didn’t Do It

Whatever it was, I didn’t do it. Or that other thing, either. Those bite marks on your sneakers? Those were, um, raccoons. The trash all over the lawn? Aliens. Big green ones. That mysterious activity in your charge account? I’m gonna go with North Korea. Or maybe Anonymous — man, those guys are good.

“Fetch the Stick” is for Wimps

Us bigger dogs like to play “Fetch the Sticks.” Throw me a handful and I’m a happy dog. Heck, I’ll even fetch the whole tree, if someone would throw one.

And Now, a Dashing Individual Sporting Not Even Slightly Ridiculous Headwear

I know it’s tempting. I get it, I really do. You see the hat, and if you’re of shall we say a certain age, a melody will pop up from some forgotten corner of your mind, and you may feel that it would brighten my day if you were to share it with me. A perfectly reasonable, seemingly innocent impulse.

All I’m saying is, the last person to serenade me with “The Mickey Mouse Club March” only got as far as “emm, eye, cee.” Word to the wise.

“My dog’s ears are prone to frostbite,” explains Redditor DetectionK9, “so he needs to wear a snood outside.” Meanwhile, we just like saying the word “snood.”

Snood. Snood.

Snooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.

The Lurking Fiend

Dear Diary: The stranger came again. Night after night he challenges me in the hallway, cloaked in the shade of darkness, growing ever taller before my astonished eyes. I stand frozen in place, afraid to speak or move, yearning only for the calm of morning when I may again bask in the warm illusion that I alone am master of this domain. Yet every sundown he is there to mock and scorn, imitating my every move. “Begone, vile specter!” I cry in vain, but the silent brute lingers. I fear that madness soon may be upon me.

You Mock Superman?

It is not wise to mock Superman. My super-ears can detect your suppressed giggles even over hundreds of miles. I might freeze you with my super-cooling breath, or fry you with my super-heat vision. Or perhaps I may flatten you beneath the weight of my super-pounce, or fling you across the room with one flick of my super-tail. But no, I am Superman. I use my super-powers only for good. Therefore, I shall merely throw you some super-shade.

It’s Amazing How They Recognize Words

“Hey, Jasper — you want to go for a walk? Maybe to the park? Where you can chase the ducks? Then we can drive to Vegas? And pawn Daddy’s ring? Then do lots of shots? And pass out in an alley? Then wake up in Mexico?”
