To me the face is an intense erogenous zone. Even more so an obscured face. It is most erotic when it is revealed tiny bit by tiny bit or not at all. Beard, veil, glasses, camera, tie, tattoo, umbrella, hair, hat, hand, scarf, smoke, shoulder, shadow, hooded lids, closed eyes, naughty smirk, obtuse stare. The hunger is not for the displayed face but for the hidden bits. What lies beneath stirs curious longings and rouses us from deep restless sleep. The obstructions serve as a lingerie of sorts, teasing us into desire and creating a barrier aching to be torn down. --The images are not mine. I'm simply seeking inspiration from others.
