I Swear, I'm Not a Perv...


Some friends and I were discussing taking risque pix for our S.O. and the general opinion was that it was no big deal, and basically everyone there HAD posed/taken "dirty birdy photos" at one time or another. I personally have never, but think it would be fun. But then I started to think about it... some of my friends are quite prudish and I could NEVER see them posing nekkid for pix- so it got me curious as to how true it was that "most people had"... thus inspiring this DIRTY BIRDY POLL....
