Nipples and Adult Toys

This weeks cool photo:

Dragonfly

Two of my most popular posts were the one that mentions a sex date in the title, and the one that mentions Lancaster’s red light district. So I figured that, now I know the level to aim for….

So, I have, like most artists and photographers, been tiring of Instagram now it has moved toward video. Anyone want to see videos of me dancing in skimpy outfits? Thought not. I have, therefore, been investigating Vero as an alternative and getting thoroughly confused by the reviews:

  • The Android phone app is said to be slow and glitchy
  • There are ethical issues with the background of it’s owner (not that Meta and IG are any better)
  • One reviewer was concerned that the nudity filter is more lax than Instagram and that minors might see female nipples

So, this last one got me thinking ( and I was viciously assaulted by a tree whist thinking about this – I hope you are grateful). I am worried that anyone thinks that kids should not see nipples. Does this not prevent them being used for their actual biological function? I can only assume that mums these days blindfold their sprogs when feeding them? I am, therefore, guessing that censorship on Instagram is based on that skewed American sense of morality that is offended by the naked body but not by guns, knives and other destructive objects? I am confused.

Anyway – the ‘adult toys’ thing? Have a look at this:

This apparently happened in Oklahoma. I am therefore minded to rewrite the words of the Rodgers and Hammerstein song to incorporate this. If anyone else wants to have a go, here are the original words:

Brand new state!Β 
Brand new state, gonna treat you great!
Gonna give you barley, carrots and pertaters,
Pasture fer the cattle,
Spinach and termayters!
Flowers on the prarie where the June bugs zoom,
Plen’y of air and plen’y of room,
Plen’y of room to swing a rope!
Plen’y of heart and plen’y of hope.

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain
And the wavin’ wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Oklahoma, Ev’ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Makin’ lazy circles in the sky.

We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say 
Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
We’re only sayin’
You’re doin’ fine, Oklahoma!
Oklahoma O.K.

Okla-okla-Okla-Okla-Okla-Okla

L – A – H – O – M – A
OKLAHOMA!

  1. Vero, eh? Thanks will check it out. (When I tried to get back on IG it seemed like a bit of a ghost town, or after after hours at the club, and I wondered if I didn’t get the memo – hahaha)

    And that is a CLOSEUP of Sir Dragonfly. Wow. How did you manage to keep his attention? πŸ˜›

    1. The new IG algorithm is apparently only showing posts to 10% of your followers, unless they are videos. Two years ago I was routinely getting 100 likes on posts. Now I am lucky if I get half that even with twice as many followers.

      To be honest – I was amazed the dragonfly didn’t get spooked. The lens was only 3 inches from its face.

  2. Absolutely laughed out loud, but was pretty sure it was going to be about plants and bugs. There is a LOT of sex in a garden. Am impressed your dragonfly didn’t attack you for being too close. They are not always kind. And think my favorite version of the song Oklahoma is by Hugh Jackman. (be still my thudding heart, but not too still!)

    1. Ha! Thank you Kris. I remember trying to photograph a lily beetle in the spring. I could not find one alone. They were all in pairs and ‘at it’.
      The dragonfly was pretty chilled out. Very surprised I got so close without spooking it! There is also a beautiful blue and green one whizzing around but I can’t get close to that one.
      Even as a straight male I have to admit that I see the appeal of Hugh Jackman. And he is also a famously nice guy as well.

      1. Jackman has a stunning voice. (sigh!) Dragonflies are such unusual creatures. When they mate they make a heart, but their heart shape and mating is rather fierce!! Love how they sew the air with their fast stitches and gossamer wings, but they do make a clatter when large and they are very hard to photograph!
