Vintage Erotica: Eyes Meet During Sexy Couple’s Scissor Coupling

very sexy french couple gazing in scissored coupling
Here’s another piece from the SEX & DESSERT vintage erotic photography series. Circa 1920s, black & white medium shot of nude sexy couple scissor coupling on a chaise propped with cushy pillows. The man cups the woman’s buttocks with his hand, his erect penis pushing into her. A portion of the woman’s black high heel is visible under the man’s scrotum, and suggests a spontaneous encounter (though this is unlikely).

Still, the photographer captured this dark-haired couple, bodies twisting entwined, in a moment which radiates “snap shot.” Note the direct, frank gaze and urgency of the composition. That they are seemingly oblivious to onlookers is part of the photo’s erotic charge. They seem entranced, completely lost in each other; the pose an intimate, private coupling, and yet, surprisingly, without a whiff of exhibitionism.  We’re inside a secret communion and they are without care. A remarkable balance between eroticism and embracing our sexiest, physical selves without too much artifice. Powerful. Tender.
