Many things bring me pleasure. Warm summer rain, for example. Chocolate. Cool autumn rain. Sleep. Refreshing spring rain. The dark of night. Walking in the rain. A good book. Rain. But honestly, when I hear the word "pleasure" none of those things comes to mind. Not at first. The first thing I think about is lust, desire, lovemaking. The Big O.
No, not Oprah.
I thought about how to accurately portray that feeling, and the ideas that I discarded ranged from mildly amusing to completely outrageous. It's weird, because we're not really supposed to be thinking about lust and desire and pleasure, and certainly not expressing them in pictures. (At least not outside of the safe confines of the home.) There's a bit of a "don't go there" surrounding the notion of pleasure, and it's no wonder, I mean, as far sins go, lust made it into the top seven, after all.
Me, I don't think pleasure is particularly sinful, and so, I took this photo for you.
Now tell me, was it too much? Or just right?
