I really like this picture! The thing that caught me was that Casual Sex is a song by the Faint. and you see, I love the faint. What I like most about the picture is the idea xD and how they aren't really paying attention to each other at all. I really love the lady's tattoos and amazin hair. And the guy's gauges. I like gauges. I also like the background of the wall behind the man. and how the pillow case matches the lady's bra xD The look on the guy's face is so funny ha ha. nice job :]

I saw the title first, and it intrigued me. After looking at the picture in a larger form, I was surprised, and almost shocked. People don't always think of sex nearly on the same level as other things described as casual. Casually reading a magazine, newspaper, book, walking... The reality is sex isn't casual. Depicting it as such illustrated just how not-casual it is.

The only qualms I have with technique would be the mans arms, newspaper, and head seeming unusually contrasted, coloured, or off compared to the rest of the picture. Other than that, it seems absolutely flawless.

5/5 for Vision
5/5 for Originality
4.5/5 for Technique
5/5 for Impact

Magnificent.

I like how the whole notion of casual is used here.

"Shall we orgasm?, I have a need for a nap"

"Oh yes, lets!  I have a few books we can choose from before we begin"

Okay, I saw this and just burst out laughing.  I read the title.  I read the description.  I see the nonchalant expressions of two people going about their day, and I just can't help but think If Norman Rockwell had been born eighty years later, this is what he'd be putting on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post.  Just a lazy Sunday at the Stephens Residence.  This is an absolutely wonderful image.

i still consider sex as something that you might be ready for, but not quite yet having that special someone to do it with.

deccaderam's critique I think says it pretty clear.  I too find this charming.  They love each other so much, that they can so much with so little.  It's not like they've grown older or anything, they just know how to read each other's feelings, and touching someone a certain way can say a lot if that's true of their relationship.

THis is great, has a romantic Norman Rockwell feel to it.  There is a sense of common intamacy that we all strive for in our relationships.
