Tasteful vs Trashy: Boudoir Photos 101

What could wow him more than a few sexy photos of you in a barely-there negligee? There's no question that boudoir shoots are becoming more and more popular, but as with most romantic gestures, there's a right way and a wrong way to turn him on. We break down the dos and don'ts you should know before stripping for the camera.

Do: Make Love to the Camera

Well okay, not literally. What we mean is, do commit yourself to the photo shoot mentally. It's perfectly normal to be nervous before a boudoir shoot (let's face it: we're not all Playboy models for a reason), but once you're there, try to make eye contact with the camera for a few shots.

Don't: Bare Everything

Remember: it's a boudoir shoot not a sex tape. So leave a little to the imagination. That means a shot of you lying on your stomach with some fabric draped over your derriere can be way more sexy than the "full monty." In fact, there's no reason that you ever have to go topless in your shoot -- unless you want to. Half-unbuttoned shirts hanging from your shoulder and stockings on the floor can evoke just as much to the imagination as seeing it all really happen.
