It should be apparent to anyone who reads WordsByBob.com that I like words. I try to note any unusual ones or ones new to my ears when I come across them. Also, I like to read blogs and listen to podcasts about words.
I recently heard a word that is supposed to be trending upward. It is the word dudeoir. Dudeoir is a spinoff from the photography style called boudoir.
Let me explain boudoir photography first. This involves a professional photographer taking pictures of women for their significant other. The poses are usually sexually suggestive or sensual in nature. They are not X-rated but usually could fall in the PG-13 range. It is different from erotic photos, in that it puts the focus (pun intended) on the aesthetic qualities of the subject.
So, dudeoir pictures are the same but the person being photographed is male. Let that sink in. On, I will not be posting any dudeoir pictures of me along with this post.
You are very welcome!
