I was just wondering how many of you have gotten aroused during a sexy photo shoot. I think it happens a lot.

What makes you think it happens so much?

I never have.

Don't know many gynecologists or proctologists who get all hot and bothered during their work day either.

(Yes I know it's not exactly the same.)

A pro is likely to be more professional I guess.

Define "get turned on"

maybe it's just me but what's the difference of a female model rubbing a finger on her vagina vs. a male model stroking his penis?

I get turned on setting up the light stands... those shafts of steel sliding through my hard hands, the tightening of the knobs to make sure they don't fall - the threads binding as the knob turns, the steel forging deep into the chrome. Dropping heavy sandbags on the legs, feeling the weight hit the hard metal tubes makes my blood race... oh yeah, getting ready for a shoot does it for me big time.

Have you tried wearing a cup during your shoots?  Might make it easier to keep your hands and bits apart, and relaxed.

The more I can just pose and go go go...the more I'm likely to get turned on.

I was moaning during my Playboy shoot...

There are times for everything, as a model probably by getting in the roll of a sexy shoot and taking it to serious its just part of the job to "act" it or "let it go" to some point to make it realistic, but as a photographer, I don't mind for nothing else than the photo I will take, if my models need to get turn on for their work to be done so be it, is not illegal anyway, and as long as we get the results on the photos we want, then I don't see any special rules, making it clear, we are not turning a photo shoot to a porn shoot, but if the emotions needs to be there, then I see nothing wrong with the models to get their minds into the game, at least for just that moment.

I saw this video of a movie called Blow Up, both of them get into some kind of interaction, but at the end of the shoot he just stands and leave the model alone and goes to relax on a sofa, and the model stays laying down in the ground still kinda posing. Thats what I call passion lol, of course is a movie and blablabla, but who cares, as long as the photos come out good.

99.9% of photographers on MM would rather take and view a photo of clit and nipple rubbing vs penis friction.

I guess 4 pages back in December wasn't satisfying enough for him. Does that make this thread sloppy seconds?

Welcome to the human race.
yes this does happen.
And it could be a good thing???

But here again, is one of those questions which just drives people to inquire where can I get a good Italian beef sandwich or a deep dish pizza.

Now that's a Topic which needs exploration???
