Pictures of women like this are the best. Too often you have two lovely ladies, intimately involved with each other, who are looking directly into the camera, or off to the side, or anywhere but at each other. When two women’s eyes are meeting, that’s when it feels sexy to me. That’s when it seems like the women are actually interested in each other, rather than exclusively interested in inviting the male gaze.
This picture even accentuates that point by including male characters who are just voyeurs - they are present but excluded, denied access. They aren’t involved in the scene, and they aren’t the focus of the women’s attention.
This is why I love exhibitionism when it’s done right. When the people inviting themselves to be watched are perhaps getting a thrill from the outside attention, but their eyes and attention and lips and body aren’t focused on anyone else except their partner(s). Those are the moments that I, as a voyeur, simply love.
