Marcus, late 80's on a Skin Tight 12c. Desperation written across his face as he tries to clip with hands crossed up. Perfect edging technique, perfect climbing physique. Note the old hand drilled button heads!
Just found it in an old box and thought i'd share.

A leading candidate from my experiences, not because of amazing photo artistry, but because it captures the least secure spot (for me) on Royal Arches:




So many ways to slice this though... pics that ultimately capture certain times or feelings or moods, pics of desperation, pics of awesome position... I look forward to seeing good stuff here. I probably won't limit myself to one.

I wondering if the fellow climbing the labia minora used Astrolube?
Doesn't he understand that chalking up the G spot is a bad idea?
Well, I hope he was gentle ~* ~* ~* ~*(())
