    Thanks to all who have taken the time to look at my first pics and for being so kind with your comments.

    It did take some courage and a lot of hovering over the upload button but so liberating to have done it without feeling judged.

    Love you guys

    Visit your profile page and there is a section there for uploading pics - or if you have bought a particular lingerie item go to its product page and you will find a link there too.

    Good luck x

    Thank you - surprised how liberating I find it - and have to go along with what others have said - there is nothing quite like seeing real people in the lingerie (or not as the case may be). I get a far better idea of what it will look like rather than seeing the 'models' in very staged photos.

    I hope whatever is up soon fixes itself and you will feel up to uploading again soon - you have a great bod and it seems mean not to share!!

    Sending hugs xxx

    I'm a crossdresser so I'm not going to scare any of you with my pics but it is so much easier to choose new things when you see them worn by real people with real bodies

    Think you'd actually have to go some to scare anyone on here.

    There are probably plenty of other cross dressers out there who would be grateful to see you in lovely lingerie - and probably those of us who aren't too!!!

    I vote everyone upload xxx

    I haven't read all the the posts but it seams that people are hesitant for confidence issues. I am wondering if you also are thinking about the fact that the pics become public after you post them. I mean, anybody can see them and do whatever they want with them.

    I feel like taking pics in my new knickers because I find my butt looks so sexy in it but I'm not sure I how I am feeling not knowing how people will react to it and if some will use them.

    I don't think it is worse than having photos at the beach on facebook or than the photo presenting the item. I already went topless on a beach in france and didn't care people seeing my breasts or staring, but if people were to have pictures it's a different thing. Someone could masturbate to the pics or put it somewhere else on the net or something like that and I don't feel ok with that.

    What do you guys think?

    I have tried putting a pic on of myself but it hasnt worked. i asked livechat the other day if it has to go through moderation and they said yes so im still waiting. hmm.. maybe i did it wrong?

    And theres nothing to be afraid of in my eyes as long as you dont have your face in the photo. some people are confident enough to have a picture of their face and thats great but the forums luckily work in a way whereby you can retain a level of anonymity if u so wish. xx

    What do you guys think?

    I find this an interesting topic.

    To me, the kind of picture you would put up on Lovehoney is not 'fap worthy'. It's a tasteful, subtle picture showcasing your lingerie, not your sexual appeal. Yes, you look good in the lingerie. But unless it's by someone who masturbates to lingerie catalogue models or something, it's not terribly likely to be saved or used for such purposes. Most people who would masturbate with visual images would use something a bit more overtly sexual in nature, if that makes sense. Or, should I say, why would anyone masturbate to photographs on Lovehoney that show nothing intimate when the internet is full of actual porn, not just people in lingerie. That's not to say that the photos here aren't gorgeous, it's just that they're not pornographic and usually aren't even that suggestive. Different kind of picture. You may as well masturbate to the models in the product photos (which I'm sure some people do, but whatever).

    Plus, if you save a picture from here it's a remarkably low res and poor quality copy of the original (I've saved my own just to see). You couldn't print them/sell them, for example. You would be obviously fake if you used them in a catfishing manner. People would scroll past them if they were posted on an amateur porn site as they're too tame to even be amateur porn. So, I don't worry that people would use them for anything like that when there are thousands of better quality images out there to steal.

    But I guess ultimately there's going to be someone out there who will masturbate to anything. Someone could be fapping to your facebook profile picture right now. It happens. I guess it's a case of what you don't know won't hurt you, unless the thought of it seriously bothers you. But I doubt there's many people who would create a community account here just to look at the member photos to masturbate to them/steal the photographs. Bit too much effort for standard modelling type non pornographic pictures. Somewhere like Fetlife would be far better suited to that sort of thing.

    It's worth noting though that Lovehoney are free to use your photographs however they like, so it could end up on their instagram or their twitter (arguably more public than this website). Again, with the quality issues and the fact that most photos here are faceless anon photos, I don't know why anyone else would post them around the internet but Lovehoney certainly can and do.

    All in all I'm personally pretty confident in posting my pictures here because my username is unique to this site and my photos are totally anon; I've airbrushed out tattoos/piercings/any other defining features on me as well as airbrushing the room to remove anything that people would recognise. I'm happy enough that my photos are 'safe' that even if they spread around the internet, no one would know it was me. I'm also happy that they don't show anything more of my body than what a trip to the swimming pool would, so even if someone DID recognise me, what could they really say about it? More so, why would anyone bother to masturbate to them?

    If you're in any way unsure that you'd be happy with your photos circulating the internet though I wouldn't put them out there; once it's online, it's always going to be out there somewhere. Being sure your account and photos are totally safe for even your parents to see and not recognise you is a pretty good standard to aim for, gives you less to worry about. The whole masturbation thing, I don't think you can ever say no one is going to (though it isn't terribly likely to be a regularly occuring thing if it does happen). But again, if that bothers you it would be worth thinking about it more before posting anything.
