Ok,

A while back I got picked to do this with my wife Gina (Tsunami) for Marie Claire magazine. The topic is "what men think is sexy". I was interviewed by one of the editors where I had to provide them with some sexy fantasy ideas involving my significant other, etc. wrapped around a photo shoot.

I shared my ideas and they basically said it will be submitted with others and we'll see if you make the cut. A while after that they contacted me saying indeed I was chosen and they'd be in touch. While finally months, months later they contact me and it's actually a go. Gina and I shoot next month for a full day in their studio with full production backing w/ special effects etc., i'm directing the shoot and we get to use her SV650S in the shoot as well. It will be in the November issue.

Below is the current email back to me showing things are a go and if you follow down you'll see a re-cap of my ideas we'll be doing

Subject: Marie Claire magazine story on what men think is sexy

Hey Evan-

How are you? Hope you're having a great summer. If you can believe it,
my editor has FINALLY decided to
schedule that story I'd talked to you about what seems like a million
years ago. Just to refresh your memory, the
story is called "What he thinks is sexy..." and will entail you "art
directing" a photo shoot starring Gina, who will
act out your fantasy. Are you and Gina still interested in being in
Marie Claire? The story would run in the
November issue, so things would have to happen pretty quickly. If you
two are still on board, let me know asap
and I'll give your info to the Marie Claire photo dept, who will call
you both to set up the shoot. (I'll also do a
quick interview at the shoot as well.) I'll also need a full body shot
of you and Gina (or two separate pics is fine,
too) as well as both of your sizes so that the fashion dept can get
started pulling clothes for you.

So... if you and Gina would still like to be in the story send me an
email or give me a call. I hope
you're game bc this is going to be a really fun project! Thanks in
advance for your patience!!
Best, Mackenzie

Fyi you'd submitted a couple different scenarios-- here are my notes
re: the one my editor selected:

-Gina on your motorbike wearing full gear or a bikini and a racing
jacket or even tight leather pants and a
leather jacket, hair in a ponytail
-the setting would be a racetrack (or a studio made to look like one),
w. lots of checkered flags and smoke coming from the tires so that it looks like Gina just made a
quick turn
-it could even be raining or foggy, like a rock video
-ideally, Gina would be holding her dog, who'd be wearing racing
goggles. Or he could even be in a backpack
behind her

This is just what you and I brainstormed together. You and the photo
editor will finalize the details. (Don't
worry, she'll guide you through the process.)

very cool. some nice ideas....but i don't get this one
The editor is basically clueless about bikes and was just throwing out ideas off cuff. Have no fear, i'm in charge and will make sure the shoot is moto accurate :)

I'm down with everything else, but I just don't get the sexiness in having a dog with racing goggles on...

It's not the dog with goggles so much as what the dog with goggles represents... ok, I don't get it either.

For what it's worth, I've always thought girls who ride are sexy.

something about the thought of "brainstorming" sexy photoshoot scenes starring my wife is just kinda... creepy?
