Well just a follow up, and yes I know it's been two years since the last post. So far I've had right at 400 downloads of this image. Alone. It's actually pushed me into releasing a couple others that I did from that same time and even they are selling. As I'm sure you can imaging the downloads don't really start kicking in till around September and then carry through till December. Between this one and two other pictures I have of me grabbing my overweight nips with no shirt on I've made little over 600 bucks. Not great but look at the picture. It's a 5 second chop job and has one of the best ROI of any of the images in my port. I've found it being used on anything from Christmas cards, shirts, posters, and even a Christmas mug for mom.

I've actually pushed it a little just to see first if the stock agencies would accept it, then second if it would sell because of the above. This has come from that test.

This won't sell right? Some guy sitting on the john licking his TP. Very first day it sold. Been selling slowly from there and if it is anything like what I've seen with other images is the more it sells the higher it ranks and then it sells even better yet.

No it's not glamorous, respectful, fancy, or anything of the sort. But it does help pay the rent or the car payment and shows something I never would of thought of listening to people here and other forums. Stock buyers are some weird people and have weird taste.

Never underestimate your buyer. You never know who they might be or what they want. Might as well cover all bases.

Too bad it is isolated on black background
White background with snow. Or a warming fireplace in the background.
Or concept with exaggerated money and luxury (lust). As a result, many of the concepts would be possible.
On the subject of self-love or money horniness with a bunch of gifts.

I once submitted an image of me peeing against a tree (faking peeing but looked it was real)  and they refused to accept it. They thought it was a tasteless image. I guess licking your tp is normal.

I don't really want to be known as that guy :p but I will take the money if it presents itself.

Just hope that I don't walk into a job interview though as I'm going to be without a job soon (no not due to the pictures they are closing the whole center down) and they look at me and go "hey I know you."

That's the thing. You may well need a few cents just now, but are you really sure you will never, ever want a professional job or public role where that photo could come back to haunt you?

Don't plan on taking any public servant job's and as far as my professional jobs, I work in a  call center. That's most of what I plan on doing is staying in the call center. Don't plan or have the education to get a higher level job, so at least right now I'm okay with it and don't forsee me having future issues other then maybe some interesting moments if a coworker see's the image. So far though most people don't put the santa nips and me together as the same person which works out well.

Semmick Photo so far most agencies have accepted the above images. The one that made me wonder the most was fotolia after they went through and approved about 20 images real quick and then sat on this one for about 2 weeks. I'm guessing they had a what . do we do with this picture moment. Though I did get a couple that denied through shutterstock along the same lines. It's ok to lick your TP but not okay to take a bite out of it. That's considered objectionable :p

Peeing in public or whatever is an offence in many countries, plus who hasnt peed in a forest once during a walk or hike? Its a saleable image IMO, with lots of uses. Not sure why the reviewer or the agency have a concious on what they are selling. I have seen women with a gun in their mouth on SS. I find that more shocking to be honest.

If at work depending on location they might not like the image so open at own risk. It is more humor then anything but still depending upon the workplace they might not like it.


This image has already been accepted but I'm curious as to what your opinions are on this image quality of image and how worthy it is for stock and what kind of sales you would expect out of an image like this? Would you even submit something like this for stock?

Someone, I don't remember who, have sent this picture to me via whatsapp as Merry Christmas gift!!!  :)
