Selfies That Shouldn’t Have Come Out!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 28, 2014 in Adult (nsfw) |

First thing we have to say: selfies of women are far better than those of men. Good, perhaps this is just my opinion, but there are far more self portraits of women out there, on the Internet, than of men and that, probably, with good reason. The thing is, I suspect that most of these selfies, shot in the privacy of a bathroom or store changing cabin, were never meant to be viewed by the general public. Perhaps one or two good friends – the trusted boyfriend is the best example – or just for themselves. Somehow, however, they managed to leak out, to hit the public domain, and to become a part of our social heritage.

For good or for bad, I must add here. Is there really a social worth in any of these photographs? Do they tell us anything about society as it is today, or about the people who make up society? Do they tell us anything about relationships, about love or trust? Well, yes, I believe they do. They form part of the fabric of modern society; reflect where we are today and how much we have come to trust – or misunderstand – the power of a photograph and the limitations of its power to spread.

And by spread I mean quite simply: once it has been sent to one person, you can almost guarantee that it will be sent on to others. One day, perhaps within just a few hours, this photograph will be available for all to see in all its glory. Not that some photographs, some self-portraits, do not deserve a wider audience, but the bulk of the non-Facebook selfies were definitely not designed for a wider audience.

There was a time when the selfie was there for others to see what we look like, a real self-portrait. Taken at arm’s-length, often from above the head, sometimes in a bathroom mirror, it gave the viewer an idea of who sits on the other end of a computer connection, who owns a Facebook profile. Not everyone has the right equipment to take a studio-perfect self-portrait with stand, lights, timer, but most have a cell phone and a mirror.

For social worth, we get to see what the fashions are, what people are wearing in their everyday lives. We see what the fashion magazines do not show us, in all its glory and without the rigid poses of a supermodel earning more money than some of us earn in a year (or more).

We get to see the more intimate side of fashion, those small pieces of fabric which normally remain well hidden – unless there is a fortuitous gust of wind or a pair of leggings are just too tight for discretion.

We get to see what younger women feel about themselves, their self-worth, their self-image. We literally invade the privacy of their bathrooms which, we hope, are respectable even if the photographs are not – who can forget the image of a young women posing in front of an open toilet bowl, complete with unflushed contents?

And we get the chance, without fear of retribution, to answer that eternal question: does my butt look fat in this?

More than this, we can all satisfy our inner voyeur, safe in the knowledge that, providing the models are of a decent, legal age, there will be no real comeback. Beautiful women in all manner of poses, barely clad, open and relaxed, seemingly safe in the knowledge that their artistic efforts will remain private, just for themselves or a small circle of friends. Photographs which were never designed to greet the public eye but which, through misguided trust perhaps, manage to find their way out any way.

Love & Kisses, Viki.
