I originally posted this in the IM stories forum, but I've begun to warm up to forum stories once again. I thought I'd post it here as well. The more I think about it, the more I feel like it would be a fun exercise in flirtation, foreplay and maybe a little something more to focus on the relationship with this photographer/entrepreneur.
An Amateur and a Lover
As always, I'm really looking for people to discuss this idea with rather than jump right into anything, so if any element of it piques your fancy don't hesitate to send me a private message. Stories only really get to me when I know my partner's as into them as I am.
I love the cliche of a struggling, cash-strapped young couple partly because I've been there. It's terrifying to be out on your own during those first couple years and not know for certain whether you're going to be able to pay the bills from month to month. Throwing a wedding into the mix can makes things exponentially worse. Then again, looking back on that sort of thing--and the things we do in order to get through them-- makes it all worth while. I'd like to dig a little deeper into that with a tale that doesn't have to be as sordid as it could
be. It really depends on you.
My character is in a long term relationship. Maybe she's engaged. Maybe she's recently married. Whatever the case, she's absolutely and genuinely in love, and though she might get the occasional flirty interaction with a man she doesn't have a cheating impulse in the least. Financial hardship has gone from bad to worse however, and with a great deal of debt, a stack of monthly bills and another semester before either of the couple will have a college degree with which to find a real
job, options are few and far between. She isn't so naive as to have any misconceptions about what she's getting into when she follows up on a lead about a modeling job. Though the site isn't fully pornographic, it's obvious that any job she might take with it would involve taking clothes off and perhaps letting someone touch her.
For your side of things, there are two potential roles. I don't feel like anyone should have to play both although it would be nice. However I'd like to focus on one particular side of the story. On one hand, I could enjoy delving into interactions with the significant other. Being a secure and loving partner and knowing just how strapped for money they are, I like to think he'd reluctantly agree to this job although he might have terms of his own. On the other hand, someone willing to portray an enterprising photographer and entrepreneur who finds himself infatuated with this 'off limits'
model would be an absolute treat to write with here.
I envision the relationship with this photographer being fairly warm. Though none too comfortable at first, my character is a friendly, outgoing young woman with a fairly attractive, understated sort of beauty. She is comfortable around men, familiar with what it feels like to be watched by them, and plenty content with her sexuality. That said, I feel like it's only a short matter of time until she's modeling in the nude for this photographer. Maybe she starts to gain a little traction through his website, prompting more shoots. Before long he's pushing things, and the rush of celebrity and an influx of cash is nearly intoxicating, so she finds herself nudging things a little further. Where she used to seductively pose and strip for a camera, now she lets him touch her. Things might even escalate so far as her offering him lap dances or letting him dry hump her, flirting with the fantasy of delving so far into the wild side while trying to deny that these acts are having an intense effect on her.
What would happen next? Where would this go, and how would it affect her relationship? I absolutely adore this idea, so if you're the least bit interested send me a note. :)
