Sexy Boudoir Photos from the '70s

By Rebeka Knott

The nude, or nearly nude, female body has been a popular subject of photography since as early as the 1800's. Early on, the pin-up girl has been very desirable to male audiences and that has not changed in history since. Early erotic photos have, most definitely, influenced boudoir photography.

Boudoir photography dates back many, many years and is typically characterized by the empowerment of its female subjects. Early on, the photo subjects may have been seen as exploited. Beginning in the '70s, however, women became willing and eager participants rather than paid models. Women were taking charge of their own lives.
