I’ve lost what I thought was the greatest love that I ever knew. It ended and my world was shattered beyond all belief. I almost lost myself and gave up. Now I have finally started to believe that love exists and can happen again. Just like what a wedding ring represents it is circular, as long as you keep it close to your heart it will return to you. Tumblr has done wonders and many of the lovely ladies and gentleman that submit to you have helped me realize I am worth the love that I yearn to have. I will wear this ring again, for who I do not know, but I eagerly await for her.
I admire your bravery and though I’ve never been married I have had my share of heart break so I can slightly relate to your feelings of loss and longing. I am glad you can have a realistic outlook on the future, and I wish you the best of luck in finding another partner. Thanks for your honest and endearing submission.
NN & Trouble - This is an image I caught at the end of a long photography session a few weeks back. The light in the space had dwindled down to nothing, so I set up a small ring light in one corner of the bathroom, just to see how it might work. I like the result very much, and hope you do too.
I also hope SS inspires people to play with lighting as much as themselves. It’s important to remember that this blog focuses on photography first, so it’s a pleasure to share a beautiful portrait like this. Thanks for sharing it.

the importance of play.
the tease of autumn leaves.
the games that make the way.
Two poem submissions this week and this one is my favorite. I like to see males embracing a submissive position, I think naturally we feel the need to be the boss but it is so nice to let go and let someone take control. I think this photo captures that feeling.
I think photographs are as much about what you don’t show as they are about what you do show.
And I absolutely agree and I’m glad you understand, thanks for being a part of SS. Black and white was a great choice for this photo, and I am sure all the ladies will enjoy the veins and definition in your hands.
Hi, NN and Trouble!
Name of this photograph is “Vitiligo”, a skin condition I have for 10 years. I simply don’t have pigmentation in some areas of my skin, and that areas are white. At the begging I was looking for all therapies that can remove most of it, but it can never be 100% gone. At one point in my life I started to like it, It made me feel unique, I’ve quitted the therapy when biggest spots were gone and accepted it as part of me.
Such a beautiful submission, this fits perfectly on SS. I feel like guys are often over looked when it comes to dealing with our insecurities of our own bodies, I know I dealt with it for a while with the scars on my back. So I am very glad to see another guy accepting himself and sharing his natural beauty. Thanks for the submission.
"As Adam early in the morning, walked forth from the bower refresh’d with sleep, behold me where I pass, hear my voice, approach, touch me, touch the palm of your hand to my body as I pass, be not afraid of my body."
- Walt Whitman
One week for SS we will have a poem theme, and people can share a photo with a favorite verse or line. I like the grit and graininess of this photo and your bow tie looks pretty sweet too.
Hi Ninja and Trouble,
With this picture i just want to show my appreciation for you both and the blog! It’s an awesome community, and i showed my support by buying a Nympho Ninja Black belt.
And oh yeah it’s a bit early, but i’d like to wish you a Happy Birthday ;)
Thank you so much for showing off your black belt and supporting the blog. It’s been a while since we’ve got a hand over heart submission and it is nice to see again.
Happy Halloween! I’m sure I’m not alone in being really excited about this week’s theme. I’ve been thinking about it for ages, trying to come up with something a bit different and I decided to venture into my loft and take photos there.
It was dark and cold and only when I came to edit the photos did I realize that they all looked really creepy and not in the least bit sexy. Is this a triumph or a disaster?
There were no faces peering out of the darkness in any of the photos so I guess I’ve lucked out and got one of those non-haunted attics.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what other Ninjas have come up with! X
I’m learning from Trouble that there is a fine line where scary and sexy can cross paths, and I’ve got a feeling this is one of the photos that could work for that. Your pose is reminiscent of a super hero or villain but either good or evil, this photo is powerful, beautiful and perfect. I’m glad to hear the theme inspired you.
Guys: Though this isn’t strictly speaking a Halloween-themed image, it is both autumnal and eerie, so I’m gonna say it counts. Hope you think so too.
There is definitely something slightly haunting about this photograph, but regardless of how spooky it may be, there is no doubt it’s beautiful. Thanks or sharing it
Happy Birthday Trouble,
I hope you have a really nice day.
I had a special picture for you in mind, but unfortunately i didn’t have much time cause of work. I hope you like this picture too.
I have a busy job, with barely time for myself so i take every occasion to do some workout and keep myself in shape. I shot this picture right before i went to the shower. I just had to enjoy the sunrise first though :)
Have a great day!!!
Thanks for submitting, I always look forward to your submissions. I like this one because you look as though you’re just discovering something. It’s a very interesting composition.
Hello N & T,
Regarding the theme of this week’s SS, you had mentioned in a previous post that you are intrigued by “references to art history/film/characters,” so this is my sexy-Woody Allen.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen it, but around the age I started needing to shave I saw the movie Sleeper, and in it he draws a line across his lips with his thumb to remove the shaving cream. For the past decade I’ve done it that way, and thought about it ever since. I also thought that the condensation on the mirror from having just come of the shower had a neat effect in that the picture was more intriguing for being somewhat obscured in parts rather than exposed.
Lastly, happy birthday, Trouble! I hope you see what you like today.
Thanks for your submission, I think it’s really adorable that you’ve adapted that little quirk from that movie. It’s kind of like how whenever I eat raspberries I have to put them on all my fingers and eat them off like in Amelie. Visually too I am such a sucker for hairy men, and think you look very sexy in this photo. Thanks for sharing this moment with us and I hope to see more from you in the future.
Hi there Ninja & Trouble,
First of all, happy birthday to Trouble!
On the post giving the theme, it said you both were interested in art history and sculpture, so I wanted to create a shot that looked like a Greek Statue. - The sculptors loved to emphasize the beauty of the human body in both movement, as well as standing. As soon as I read the theme this week I new exactly what I was going to do..
You’ve done a fantastic job recreating the pose of a Greek Statue. I’m especially drawn to your feet and hands in this photo. I always found they were one of the most expressive parts of Classical sculpture and through your hands and I feet I definitely get a sense of motion. Great work and thanks for submitting this week.
First off, I like to wish Trouble a lovely happy birthday. If I could, I’d make a platter full of cupcakes for both you and Ninja to enjoy. Without a doubt, it’s been a true pleasure seeing your images and reading your stories now that you’re fully involved in this blog.
To Ninja. Thank you again for the NN bracelet; having it around my wrist while I’m out and about feels really good. It’s even made commuting on the Metro pretty interesting because of the attention the bracelet gets from some onlookers. It made me curious if they knew what the “NN” symbol stood for and I guess the biggest payoff was getting a slight nod along with a smirk from a redhead as she passed my by.
Last but not least, a belated happy anniversary. I’m so happy to have witnessed your blog grow to what it is today. I’m really proud of you with all your accomplishments and I can’t wait to see what else you have in store down the line. Thank you for following me since waaay back (late 2010 I think? when I had my old blog) I don’t think I’d be able to make my unusual kinks and desires into reality if it hadn’t been for people like you.
I’m so happy to hear about all the positivity you’ve culled from the blog and seeing you wear the NN so proudly and hear about your little encounters because of it makes me even happier. You look great in it and I hope you continue to explore your kinks! Thanks for the sweet birthday wishes.
Over summer I have been working on improving my my physical self (for my mental self), by working out, eating better, and I’m finally coming to appreciate myself for who I am.
I’ve kept a log of this progress: http://niartretsnom.tumblr.com/
The pose is inspired from the likes of greek statues I saw in Cyprus and Crete when I was younger, and the natural lighting from a morning sunrise felt like the best illumination for myself.
You definitely look like you have the stature of a greek god in this photo. I really love the control in your shoulders and the way the light is highlighting the definition on your arm and ribcage. I’m happy to hear you’re doing such positive things for yourself.
