In the boudoir we are the soul seductresses of our own destiny. Let's spend more time there.
I get this question all the time, "Why should women choose to have their photos taken in the boudoir style?"
I can often sense where this question is coming from. Most of us women have been trained to feel shame about our erotic bodies, the same bodies that happen to be magnificent forms that create, gestate, and birth life. We have been trained to shame and judge another woman's eroticism to ignore our own. We have been trained to stifle the very senses that not only come naturally to us, but are essential to living a full life.
The taste for divine love, the sight of beauty, the feel of mother nature's mysteries, the sound of a laughter, and the scent of your beloved's skin are some of sensuality's gifts. We are alive, erotic creatures that just want to feel whole.
Some women, of course, do have a deep desire to unleash this divine essence to sensually dance within her as vibrant life force. She does want to experience a true felt sense of her beauty and her power as woman. And this is where the answer to the question lies.
We choose to be Boudoir Bombshells to undo shame, to take back our most powerful essence as a woman, and to feel alive.
BOUDOIR BOMBSHELL ARCHETYPE
A woman, through the archetype of the Boudoir Bombshell (as I teach it), allows herself to remember her deep roots in the ancient goddess mysteries. In ancient Egypt, the Isis lineage taught serpent power, which is similar to what is known as Kundalini, the alchemical fires of transmutation allowing spirit to live within the body as soul. Spirit being an energy so ecstatic, awakened and magnificently erotic in nature.
Experiencing our Boudoir Bombshell allows us to call forth a sensuality that is often ignored or forgotten. An intimate boudoir experience is but a little dip into the initiation rituals of ancient goddess wisdom.
For me and my muses, the journey into our inner Boudoir Bombshell is an opportunity to embody the natural sensuality of our truth, to really feel a heightened sense of self, to dig deep into our erotic souls and emerge a little bit more whole.
The Boudoir Bombshell Archetype is luxurious, abundant, full of life. Her ability to magnetize her desires in love, beauty, and pleasure are exquisite. She is adorned in only the finest lingerie, her movement slow and sensual, yet she is never serious or attached to anything in particular. Her lover (or lovers!) shower her with loving attention. She is simply divine.
If the above did not satisfy your curiosity as to why some women choose to try on the Boudoir Bombshell archetype, even in just a photography session, then my response is WHY NOT? Why not feel alive in your eroticism even for just a moment? Why not try adorning beautiful lingerie instead of shaming those that do? Why not explore a richness of the senses that come so naturally to us? Why not have some crazy fun? Why not?
I now want to experience my inner Boudoir Bombshell by slipping on a silk robe and eat some bon bons. Who wants to join me?
