    Probably more sensual than erotic, but Edward Weston.

    SOunds like you have a good idea of what you are looking for. "erotic is personal. I like the second definition given on Dictionary .com. It sums up erotic for me

    Tending to arouse sexual desire.

    What sparks that desire for you? For me it is the entire package-clothing, voice, look, body language, scent and touch. I do not find the nude human form to be erotic. depending on how the image is presented, the feelings will range from total indifference to appreciation, to humor. I may be completely wrong but eroticism seems to appeal to a higher level of feeling and emotion and requires all of the senses. I have never seen an erotic image, nor do I think I ever will. I feel a two dimensional representation of a person cannot be erotic.

    I never realized until now that Weston's "Civilian defense" was a fetish picture. I always presumed that it was just very sophmoric satire.

    I'm not familiar with "civilian defense", but I was thinking about his peppers, and shells, and mushrooms, and less of Charis.

    Charis, (necked as a jaybird), wearing a gas mask.

    I prefer the one with Charis leaning back against a rock fully clothed.

    My favorite erotic picture:

    http://www.leanne-newton-photography.com/beauty4.htm
    (perfectly save to watch btw, even if you go to church each sunday

    Pictures like this usually touch my hearth, I find them very erotic. LA type of 'erotic' (porn) sometimes does touch my hormones but never touches that real feel deep inside you. (That's probably what arigram ment with shallow already.)

    BTW arigram how can you compare Max with those other magazines?
    BTW2 any links to pictures like the one I mentioned are more than welcome.

    cheers!

    I like how this is progressing...

    Michael Blansky: You are scaring me! Let me point out to you that I prefer non-bearded faces, preferably of women...
    Atleast I am happy my post go you going!

    Quinten: What's the difference between Max and the other Male-oriented magazines? They all feature lusty cloned women, pseudo-political articles and consumer guides.

    I have taken some photos I consider erotic, but unfortunately I can't show them to you guys. I could lose my neck if I do.

    Well you could be right, I only have two very old max magazines. One has a great B&W arty shoot in it the other a slightly different style of the common. I do remember holding some recent ones in my hand and it didn't appeal so maybe they changed.
