Fully Dressed Thursday

As I mentioned in last week's comments box, I have become bored with HNT so will not be participating for the foreseeable.

Creating a badly focussed image of my own arse, cleavage or shoes each week was beginning to feel like a chore rather than a pleasure and I just couldn't find the time or inclination to respond to all the vacuous "Happy HNT!" comments with vacuous "Happy HNT!" comments of my own.

Also, it seems to me that each week the "half" part of "Half Nekkid Thursdays" is increasingly abandoned as HNTers post ever more explicit images and positively pornographic click-throughs. I love the idea of body confidence and some of the photography you find on HNT posts is just stunning, but, equally, there are an awful lot of pictures that look distressingly like butcher's shop windows. I really don't know how to comment on those:

"Lovely flaps"?
"What a charming shade of pink your insides have"?
"Great foreskin, clever composition, loving your hairy nads"?

What the hell is all this willy-waving, flange-flashing all about? What the yellow rubbery fuck is half "nekkid" about that?

So, given my disenchantment I think I shall retire my cleavage for a little while and go comment on posts where I don't have to unwittingly see the contents of anyone's undercrackers while trying to eat my breakfast.

Well I got a good chuckle from the lovely flaps and great foreskin! LOL...and I understand your point as I feel quite "fluffy and foo-foo like" with my Happy HNTs... I do like those who try to be creatively half nekkid...rather than the blatant displays of netherbits - especially those in duo-action! Though my lack of participation this week is because I don't want to show off my germy, snotty nosed self... SO Cheers to being fully dressed!

Trixie said...

Totally agree with you there! That's why I only visit Carn and Cake, they, are at least, discreet!

Nothing worse, reading your blogs on a Thursday with kiddies around, and me spitting coffee on my keyboard!

Baby - don't get me wrong, I have discovered some lovely new bloggers via HNT, yourself most definitely included, but I feel the original ethic/concept/whatever has been lost somewhat in a frenzy of "look at my tits and bits! woo!"

Trixie - absolutely! Though, even Cake has fallen prey to the curse of ever more extremes and had what looked suspiciously like a cock stuck down her cleavage on last week's click through.

Hoorah for a stand against the gynae shot!

I was a big, BIG fan of the HMT. The creative use of foil and clingfilm set you above the rest. Any chance of a return to those heady days?

Luka said...

Freddy - there's always a chance I may get bored and/or drunk and clingfilm my own arse again!

Riff Dog said...

Happy HNT!

Hey, wait a minute! You didn't post a picture!!! And I'd been crafting that most decidedly UN-vacuous comment all week in anticipation of today!!!

Well . . . maybe I can find someone else to say "Happy HNT" to.

Helga Hansen said...

Funny, isn't it... we both became disenchanted round about the same time. So, I've headed off in another direction... and I know I was guilty, guilty, guilty of flashing my tits!!!

Luka, I can really see your point in this but hey... I's a drug and I'm addicted ;) And, oh... most important - I choose to watch only on things that I really like, including yours, in my search for the more quality-oriented blogs ;)

Luka said...

Riff Dog - I am quite, quite sure you can find a multitude of HNT posts where you can fully utilise your finely crafted "HHNT!"

Helga - I think it's one of those things that has a limited shelf life - for me at least. I will probably still post random pics but not to a weekly schedule and without the pressure of having to go comment to get comments.

Luka said...

d2b - I shall still be visiting your blog and others I discovered through HNTing, it's just that - as I tried to last week - I shall be commenting on things not solely HNT related. I was boring myself with my uninspired HNT comments and overusing the word "gorgeous" so it will be fun to pop by on other days and be slightly more articulate.

Walker said...

There is only so much that you could do with HNTs and eventually run out of spots to show before you end up looking like wall paper.
I must andmit that some are very creative and some that should get dressed, NOW!!!!!!

I know many who started as a way to get new readers but all they got were a bunch of vouyers once a week and stopped doing them to.

Luka said...

Walker - that's a very good point. HNT is a great way to generate lots of comments, but the flip side is that most of them are from people who only visit once a week and don't really give a flying fuck about what you have to say the rest of the time.

B said...

I shall be HNTing for as long as the inspiration allows. Where else can a married 30 something girl get her exhibitionist kicks? I would appreciate a firm nudge though from time to time so I don't inadvertently show my snatch....

Luka said...

B - I am glad to hear it! I'm not anti-HNT at all, just anti-HNT-for-me at the moment. I still appreciate the efforts of others (but I will put my kebab aside in distress if I unwittingly see flaps.)
