There’s a new trend in modeling where models are encouraged to put their hands over their head and show off their armpits.  (see inserted pictures for reference)


I’m not sure who exactly thinks that the armpit is “sexy”, but I have news for them…

It’s not. 

It’s an Armpit.  

There’s nothing sexy about an armpit.

Hairy, shaved, covered in chocolate, strawberries and whipped cream…the armpit is not sexy.  It’s a part of the body we all find pathetic because it causes undo stress from over-active sweat glands.  By nature and if left unchecked, it has odors that are not pleasant by any stretch of the imagination.  The armpit is not sexy, and yet…there are photographers out there that want to show off the armpit as though it’s sexy and alluring (did I spell that correctly?…A .. L .. L .. U ? ? ? .. whatever…) but it’s not.


Personally, I believe the reason for the current upswing in armpitography is because photographers are running out of parts of the female anatomy to sensualize.  They started with the face, then moved on to breasts and when those were blown out of proportion (literally) they moved on to legs, then the lower small of the back, then the belly button area and now…the armpit.  

What’s next?  The big toe?  The wrist?  Maybe the small intestine?  

Get over the fascination with the armpits, people!  Because thinking the armpit is somehow “sexy” is pathetic!!
