Sexy Reading Images

Don’t really have much ideas for this blog lately, so I thought to search for sexy images of people reading. Somehow, I couldn’t find images of men reading – maybe I’m using the wrong search terms. Anyway, I’m putting up some pictures I found.


Eve Arnold, ‘Marilyn Monroe Reading Ulysses’, Long Island, 1954.

“This is so sexy, precisely because it’s Marilyn reading James Joyce’s Ulysses. She doesn’t have to pose, we don’t even need to see her face, what comes off the photo is absolute concentration, and nothing is sexier than absolute concentration. There she is, the goddess, not needing to please her audience or her man, just living inside the book. The vulnerability is there, but also something we don’t often see in the blonde bombshell; a sense of belonging to herself. It’s not some playboy combination of brains and boobs that is so perfect about this picture; it is that reading is always a private act, is intimate, is lover’s talk, is a place of whispers and sighs, unregulated and usually unobserved. We are the voyeurs, it’s true, but what we’re spying on is not a moment of body, but a moment of mind. For once, we’re not being asked to look at Marilyn, we’re being given a chance to look inside her.”

Of all the pictures, I actually found Paris Hilton the sexiest one! What about you? Or maybe you can share a picture of a sexy woman reading. 🙂

    “I see London, I see France…” for that last one. Doesn’t everyone look for books in the library that way?

    I was impressed to see Paris reading.

    nylusmilk: well, not everyone wears skirts that short looking for books in the library… 😉

    i think that was for a photoshoot. she couldn’t possibly be actually reading that! 😛

    Yeah, I was also skeptical seeing Hilton reading The Art of War! Cool, was Monroe really reading Ulysses and not posing for a photo?

    nylusmilk: haha, who could blame us, huh? that one, i’m not so sure. it doesn’t seem posed.

    Nylus read this and tell me what you think, it’s VERY rough and unedited or even finished it can be built on, it’s not quite what you asked but could be developed into what you want-read and think and comment

    nylusmilk: commented – looks good to me!

    Have it then, by the way I read those poems on grammar and pronunciation and I have to say my humble offering doesn’t quite come up to that standard-they are great-but the difference in style disguises that a little, ah um anonymous? hmm

    nylusmilk: great, thanks! i’ll post it soon 🙂

    Nylus [if they are not yours and you are being modest]could those poems be Kipling?-you don’t have to link [yes you do] but I would prefer the link to be with Rhyming Yack, also if you had wanted to open a guest page like you did before I would type it up, 🙂 be good now. Suz

    nylusmilk: which poem are you referring to? okay, i’ll link there sure. don’t worry about commenting here, i get many random visitors who post unrelated stuff here. as it is, this blog hardly receives comments so any it gets it will be happy about. 🙂

    The powems about english grammar and another one about pronunciation, they are in the archives and I can’t find them now, dammit, they are anonymous. really good.

    nylusmilk: oh those… i remember reading them in e-mails forwarded to me too. not so much anonymous as unknown, really! yeah, i love poems like that. entertaining and informative!
