Howl at the moon

I am a bit of a Halloween grouch. It was not something that I grew up with. Mainly because back when I was a kid it was nowhere near as popular as it is now and also my parents just were not into it either. Once I had my own kids I continued to ignore it, yes I am that person who turns out the lights at the front of the house and pretends to be out when Trick or Treaters come calling. Eventually my kids got to an age where this was just not going to cut it any more and then @domsigns arrived in this house and all Halloween grouching was banished. Suddenly there were pumpkins, tubs of sweeties (candy) for the potential Trick or Treat visitors and even on occasion make up and costumes. Despite all this I find it hard to shake off my belief that Halloween, the modern-day commercial aspects of it, are a made up holiday foisted on us by America. See told you I was a grouch about it all.

So why I am writing about this for Sinful Sunday then?

Well there is one part of Halloween that I do enjoy, and that is the imagery and the stories. I do love a good ghost story or witches, I have a bit of things about both of those but it is the associated images that really do it for me. I love creepy, Gothic horror style erotic images. I love other peoples but I absolutely adore creating them myself. Some of my favourite photographs I have on my site here are the ones that are dark and disturbing. I love exploring the juxtaposition between the things that freak us out and the things that turn us on in my work both written and visual. It is why I get off on the idea of a gloved hand over my mouth while being held down and fucked and why I have fantasies about fucking in moonlight graveyards with the restless dead stirring beneath the surface.

The line between the macabre and grim and the erotic and sexy are very thin for me when it comes to images and creating pictures that inspire those conflicting responses in people delights me. So whilst I may not really be a fan of many aspects of Halloween when it comes my photography I take great joy in delving into the sinister side of eroticism.

I’m a grouch about it too, hate the commercial crap. But also a Halloween party, was the catalyst event in my break up with Ryan, so I have yet another reason to dislike it. But like you I also like sexy spooky stories… Goddess this world gets complicated…

That’s fantastically, scarily, creepily sexy. Well done you.
I never got Halloween much either, but I’m getting more in touch with my spooky side as I get older.

Wow Molly this is frigging awesome. Truth be told I am very similar in how I behave around Halloween – I try to be that person that turns out lights but my OH embraces it fully so I can’t be a Halloween grouch xD I do however love all the spooky images as they usually have quite a dark theme and it’s my personal favorite kind of photography!

WTF, Molly! I about lost it when I saw this photo. Beyond scary, but it is strange way highly arousing.

I’m riveted by the tension in your hands and those holes in your fishnets. All I want to see is a picture of what caused this response and then what happens after! It’s a fantastic story in a glance…

Oh yes, I am very drawn to the dark side so this pulls me in!
The depth and power of the utterly black background sends you right out to us – feral sexiness x ?

Wow Molly the angst in this picture! You look like you’re unravelling in a scary,sexy way. I actually wouldn’t have recognised you had it not been on your site. Fabulous take on Halloween.

Oh my god, this is so fantastically creepy and sexy and dark! I love Halloween for the same reasons you do, but I also love all the “American” festivities that go along with it 🙂 The kids dressed up as superheroes, the candy, all that stuff 🙂

Love that photo! It’s creepy and sexy. I can get into the costume and photography bit, but Halloween itself doesn’t do much for me either.

The make-up, the expression on your face, the black and white edit… Molly, this is stunning!

It’s hilarious to me that you see the commercial aspects of Halloween as an import from America, since Halloween itself is an import from the Celts! I mean – I agree, but it’s still funny. 😀 I’m glad that @domsigns has spirited you with pumpkins and treats. And a BIG fuck yes to this amazingly disturbing picture… more dark things, always. xx

I myself am a Halloween grouch as well. However, I am like you and I love the stories and the photography. As usual, amazing image, Molly!
