Modeling for Yourself -- the Answer

Email to the photo editor on aforementioned job:

Well, my first shoot with you has been an interesting one. On my way to the game on Friday night I stopped at Best Buy, Circuit City and Sears to shoot pictures of rows of televisions as a second option, just in case the Jumbotron shot wasn't working. I managed to get kicked out of all three stores for shooting there -- the lady at Sears was in an electric wheelchair and called security. I felt like I was back in junior high.

Saturday morning I went to our local sex shop to pick up some props. The selection at there is pretty amazing, and the sales staff helped me pick out a really cool handcuff / blindfold / paddle / moustache set, along with a leather and rubber ball gag just like the one the gimp used in pulp fiction.

My wife and I actually staged some sex pics of ourselves on Saturday night, which was really weird, and for a second I actually thought that it was going to work. But all it took was seeing the tiny little digital image on my camera to make me realize that the photos I shot should never be seen by anyone, ever. It just didn't feel right to either of us.

So, I'm sorry I didn't deliver an original sex shot. I learned a bit too late that I'm just not the guy for this.

It's just wack timing. If you'd waited until the DNC started there woulda been politicians having sex in the bushes full-time.
