Sending a sexy photo, if it’s done right, can really spice up your relationship and get you both worked up and excited for your next encounter. There’s no need to completely strip off – be suggestive instead by sucking on a lollipop or sending a picture of your new Lace Up Romper (£29.99, kinky.co.uk). For those of you who aren’t 100% comfortable and confident with sexy snapshots; props, blankets, and filters can be used to cover, crop and change the bits you’re unhappy with. Show as much or as little as you like, just remember to keep it light-hearted and fun!

Trust is Crucial

Are you 100% sure that you trust your partner? Are they the type that might show their friends your sexy selfies? Will they accidentally leave their phone on a table for others to find? Or even worse, upload them online if you go through a bad break up?

These scenarios might sound extreme, but if there’s even a shadow of doubt in your mind you might want to think of other ways to get your partner hot under the collar while still protecting your image. The easiest way of doing this is by sending a picture that doesn’t include your face. If you’re already nervous, you’ll relax more knowing that no one who accidentally stumbles across these pictures will know it’s you.

A Tripod Is Your Friend

If you want to send more than just a few snaps from your phone, then a tripod is definitely the way to go. Use it to photograph yourself when you’re alone – giving you time to practice poses and trying out new props and accessories. If you decide to take pictures with a camera, turn it into a surprise present for your partner; email it to them after they leave for a business trip, leave it on the fridge with a promise of things to come when you return home…it’s all about keep it fun and flirty.

If you’re really looking to spice things up; a tripod also comes in handy when you decide to take pictures of, or film, yourselves together. That said, you could also experiment with exhibitionism and voyeurism by passing the camera back and forth and taking sexy pictures of each other. Play with different ideas and see what works for you both.

Variety Is Key

Everyone has a certain pose that they like to do in pictures, but remember to keep the images fresh or it’ll quickly lose its sexiness and fun. For example, do a strip tease. Send your partner a series of shots throughout the day with one piece of clothing being removed in each one. Don’t feel like you have to pose in each shot. Sometimes the best pictures are the action shots – when you’re in the middle of undressing or giggling – not just pouts and posing. Again, it’s all about experimenting and seeing what you’re comfortable doing in front of the camera.

Make Yourself Feel Sexy

What’s the point of sending a picture if you’re not enjoying it? Wear what makes you feel good – your favourite underwear, Fishnet Stockings (£8.99, kinky.co.uk), a Leather Open Eye Mask (£12.99, kinky.co.uk) – and it’ll show through in your pictures.

Choose lighting that will compliment you. Avoid harsh, overhead lighting that’ll highlight any imperfections. You should also avoid using a flash that lights up the whole room. Instead, opt for ambient lighting, candles, or natural light. Happy snapping!
