Fetish Friday ~ The Power of Images

I used to have a blog on Wordpress that got terminated due to pornographic content. Here's one of those posts... (NB: the links are all dead so don't bother clicking)

The Power of Images

by Nero
Not the original image, but you get my point?
This image captured my attention. It seems so decadent, I imagine her as my submissive toy, available for my base pleasures.
Of course when I look closer and reflect more deeply on the image I can see its really nothing like that at all. I'm just projecting my own wants/needs/desires onto the image. That's what people do, they project their own views/fears onto what's in front of them. It's how advertising and brands work.
First impressions count and everything that comes next is based upon that foundation. I joined Facebook many years ago, during the 'Wild West' years, and I ran a little experiment with my profile picture. I didn't use my own, I used obscure photos of Steve McQueen, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney - cropped to kinda mask who they were. People (by which I mean: WOMEN) responded very well to those images. I got propositioned a lot in Fun Friends, Naughty Friends, and all those other crazy games that preceded Mafia Wars and FarmVille.
In between those three Hollywood hunks I would substitute alternative images: clowns, freaks, and geeks. The 'interest' in me would drop markedly, until I went back to the 'regular' images. Why? Because people respond viscerally to images.
Which is why I don't post pictures of myself on this blog. Sure, I don't want my real face published on a sex blog (although some bloggers have no problem with it), but I also don't want to shatter the image you have of me in your mind's eye. You read my words and imagine how I look, and I'm happy with that.
