Handfuls of Conkers

“You are like a chestnut burr, prickly outside, but silky-soft within, and a sweet kernel, if one can only get at it. Love will make you show your heart some day, and then the rough burr will fall off.” ~ Louisa May Alcott

MOlly holding horse chesnuts, conkers, up against her bare breastsOf course these are Horse Chestnuts not their edible distant relations, Chestnuts. Horse Chestnuts are not good for much, apart from growing new Horse Chestnut trees and the old-fashioned playground game of Conkers. Now it appears that most Americans have no idea what Conkers is so I will do my best to explain. A hole is drilled through one of the seeds and string, often a shoe lace, is pushed through and a large knot is tied on both ends of the string to stop the conker from sliding off.

Your opponent then hold the string so the conker dangles down and you have to use your conker to try to hit it. You take turns at hitting each others conker until one of your conkers falls apart. The winner is obviously the person whose conker manages to bash the life out of their opponents. Those with a competitive and maybe not very sportsmanship attitude might be tempted to try to harden their conker by doing things like baking them in the oven, painting them with clear nail varnish or soaking them in vinegar but as a general rule these are all regarded as cheating.

Over the years this game has ebbed and flowed in popularity and some school have banned them being played due to fears over health and safety but despite that you still see primary aged kids in the park collecting handfuls of conkers as if they were treasure.

    Well for starters, I thought ‘Conkers’ meant something else when I saw this photo. She is not only sexy, but educational as well. I could think of another use for that green one.

  • Mrs Fever

    I like the way the prickles on the horse chestnut highlight the goosebumps forming on your areolas. It’s a lovely play on texture.

  • LittleSwitchBitch

    I love the contrast for the hard , spikey conkers against your beautiful, soft looking skin x <3

  • Cousin Pons

    Prickliness and soft flesh go so well together in this hot and sexy image.
    And I doubt if the rules of conkers have ever been better explained.

  • May More

    Beautiful shot – what I like most is the colours playing on the textures. Its a wonderfully earthy photo.

  • Wolfgang🔐

    Nice picture .You picked a good one explaining Conker’s to the world . They think were strange to start with (it’s been a good year for Conker’s this year) 😸👍

    • Molly Moore

      Haha, being married to a Murrican I know full well that they are just as strange too just in different ways


  • Marie Rebelle

    So many beautiful textures in this image! Love the look of your nipples… 😉

    Love this image! Can almost feel the prickles…
    I first came across conkers in an encyclopedia when I was little, and was so disappointed that there were no horse chestnuts in Australia. Aussie kids of my age learned more about Britain than our own country, which probably accounts for my ongoing fascination your landscapes and flora…

  • Michael Samadhi

    Besides the lovely artistic photo (as always Molly) I learned something from your post. Conkers? Interesting… Although the exact species is different, I think we have similar trees here we call ‘buckeye’

  • Exposing40

    Such a perfect autumn image. I wish I’d been a fly on the wall when you were explaining conkers to Michael! I always collect them and are then always sad when they lose their shine!

  • Modesty Ablaze

    Such a wonderful, earthy, picture . . . I love the colours . . . almost like one of those old time movie posters.
    Love it !!!

    I always love the posts where I can learn something new about another culture, and your post is no exception. As always, that is a beautiful image. I love the colors that give it an earthy, and almost vintage, feel.

  • Jo

    I love that when I visit your site, I not only get to admire sensual, breathing images… I also get cultural education! Can’t wait to suggest to The Engineer when I visit that we play conkers; it will crack him up. I so love the Alcott quote to introduce this post, and the way that you have both the shell and the nut held close to your heart – perfect. The colors are also beautifully autumnal! x

  • Nick

    What a gloriously sexy shot.

  • Bondage God

    A wonderful image and a clever way of presentating conkers against your bare skin.

  • Bee

    I love how you’ve moved a childhood game into the adult world and I hadn’t considered it is a very eccentric British pastime!
