I am a texture queen. No, really. What’s more sexy than the sensation of long silk gloves, or the bite of lace trimmings, or the tension of satiny rope? Fortunately, I’m not alone. Whether wet or dry, clasping or loose, old or shiny new, Rae Threat is making it hot in her photography. If you’re inspired by the photos we’ve posted here, please take a look at her tumblr and feast your eyes on more artistic gems.
Maybe my love of texture has inspired a love of burlesque. When I learned the art of burlesque dance with the ladies of Rogue Burlesque, one of the most intriguing things that they taught us was how to communicate texture — or, more specifically, our own textures. Running your fingers over your skin (or indeed your silky gloves) with relish quietly implies that you’re gorgeous to touch, plus if you hold your audience’s gaze as you do this, you easily suggest that they’d love to touch you.
And of course, when there’s a nipple involved, texture becomes even hotter. (Check out the images, my friends!).
