Hot Red

Entry Description

It's the key stages of free relationship, starting from the moment when desire fades away, till the moment when passion is re-ignited. I tried to show the feelings of both partners. I called this photostory “Hot Red”: “hot” comes from the notion of “hotwife” and “red” is the color accent in the pictures, symbolizing the fire of emotions between the partners. I’m not saying that it’s the only way to bring sexuality back into the long-term relationship. Each couple has the right to make their own choice. But I’m sure that this choice must be conscious and free for everyone.

Story

“Deep conflicts rage at the heart of modern sexuality. Our cultivated ignorance is devastating. The campaign to obscure the true nature of our species’ sexuality leaves half our marriages collapsing under an unstoppable tide of swirling sexual frustration, libido-killing boredom, impulsive betrayal, dysfunction, confusion, and shame. Serial monogamy stretches before (and behind) many of us like an archipelago of failure: isolated islands of transitory happiness in a cold, dark sea of disappointment. And how many of the couples who manage to stay together for the long haul have done so by resigning themselves to sacrificing their eroticism on the altar of three of life’s irreplaceable joys: family stability, companionship, and emotional, if not sexual, intimacy? Are those who innocently aspire to these joys cursed by nature to preside over the slow strangulation of their partner’s libido? ” “Sex at Dawn”, Christopher Ryan, PhD, CacildaJethá, MD I decided to show the key stages of free relationship, starting from the moment when desire fades away, till the moment when passion is re-ignited.
