But, sometimes you are ready to return to normal.
dievca IS working on her flexibility…
A comprehensive body of work, Graff’s Constriction series began in 1991. Much of the series was photographed over an intensive two-year period (1991-1992), after which the series was revisited in 2013.
In Constriction, we discover nude figures bound with ropes. Their bodies, partially concealed, are meticulously wrapped in a manner reminiscent of the ancient Egyptian mummy wrap technique. Captured in raking light, the bodies appear incomplete, resembling at times heavy stone sculptures.
The eroticism of a rope-tied nude figure has appealed to many artists in the past. Man Ray’s 1936 Venus Restaurée, a precursor to Graff’s work, binds a classical armless female nude with rope. However, Graff’s nude figures are too complex to be interpreted as mere sexual fantasies. Graff’s subject matter stems primarily from his fascination with the ritual of binding body parts found in various indigenous cultures.
Another source of inspiration for Graff is the escapologist and stunt performer Harry “Handcuff” Houdini, who would often volunteer to be bound and chained on stage before performing a miraculous escape. This theatrical element is alluded to in Graff’s studio set, which often incorporates a painted canvas backdrop reminiscent of a Victorian stage or sideshow backdrop.
Graff’s bound nude figures offer many potential interpretations, making the Constriction series a dynamic, dramatic, and timeless body of work. ~ Todd Merrill Gallery

Today is Thursday — Lingerie Day.
dievca took the “Red Eye” from LAX and even though she slept in Mint Class, she was brainless upon arrival and mixed up her days.
If you were stopping by the blog for Lingerie Day — the original lingerie post was yesterday.
Which brings us to today.
A second “lingerie” post.
When writing this post dievca was thinking about a friend who is coming from Europe to stay with her for 10 days. Her friend is a photographer and wants to take photos of dievca — knowing full well that dievca HATES to be photographed. dievca is working on this issue by taking occasional random selfies. Terrible selfies – but she read somewhere you get better in front of the camera then more photos you are in.
Yes, it is working. dievca tilts her chin correctly so it doesn’t look like a double chin, she squints her eyes a bit to soften the wrinkles. Her smiles are not as “toothy”, etc.
But she is going to tell you that there are people who are just naturally photogenic.
dievca is not one of the them….”Better on Broadway.” (Better Live)
A dievca can dream~
The photo above is lovely. It’s from a Boudoir Photographer in LA.
Rhiannon Panopoulos is the creative photographer and CEO of Alloria Winter creating Boudoir & Ethereal photos for the Everyday Woman.
Her enchanted closet contains:
dievca is not in her 20’s, but it would have been fun to try to see if the boudoir photographer in LA. could work magic on an aging submissive…..ah well, a missed opportunity.
Maybe you are bolder than dievca and ready for your Boudoir shots or your Mistress or Sir requested photos. Check out the website.
dievca is just going to let her friend give it a go, disaster or not, it will make her friend happy.
For dievca, it’s a form of submission.
If you are looking to up your BDSM elegance game
you and your Madame/ Sir are label conscious:
Maybe the designer locks on your collar and cuffs are not enough, you can add the Louis Vuitton Baxter collar and lead. (note: you need to have a thin neck, max circumference 11.4 inches/29 cm) The collar and lead are about $300+ each.
I feel your arms envelop me from behind, your nose nuzzles the nape of my neck. A pull back on my shoulders causes my breasts to jut out, the nipples extended and my earlobe begs for your teeth. But your hand snakes down to my pussy, wet and welcoming when the clitoris is lightly pinched~
