Verbose – Upskirt on Road (2013)

Upskirt as a motif in porn makes me wary. There are so many scumbags with zero concern for basic consent who surreptitiously film women: submariners, Bostonian and this guy in Kobe, Japan.

At the same time, the women I’ve dated have although categorically being only loosely pro-porn, they have all been super into material featuring upskirt shots as a ‘plot’ point. (I’ll never forget the day my ex I and I watched a video with a women hiding under an open stairway in a shitty desert motel to try to peek up women’s skirts while she masturbated. (Of course, this led to another woman catching her.

I won’t argue that it wasn’t a hot clip. I was very into it–if only the actresses seemed really into each other.

Yet, I do think that ETHICAL upskirt is probably a sorely under explored vein of erotic photography.

For example this picture isn’t bad–it’s not compositionally excellent but it’s roughly balanced. Her not looking at the camera and instead futzing about with her shoe–distract from the contrivance of the framing. She isn’t positioned so the view up her skirt is dead center in the frame, either. There’s some subtlety operating. (Although given the composition, a wider frame would’ve be preferable to this narrow frame. I’m only not calling it #skinnyframebullshit because I have a strong sense that it was shot horizontally and subsequently cropped.)
