Most experts in the area of seduction will tell you that the surest way to make a woman feel good is to tell her that she's beautiful. And it's true - there doesn't seem to be a single woman in the world who doesn't love to hear it.
But there's another side to this dynamic that many experience first hand, but rarely identify or discuss. Some of the greatest joys of living with or being married to a women are the moments of marvellous beauty she creates just for you, inadvertently, combing her hair, moving gracefully around the house, or yawning and stretching in the morning.
It's funny. You can tell a woman she's beautiful to get her into your life, and once in your life, she gives you her beauty. Maybe this is why I've always been attracted to the women who seem capable of a lifelong romance. It's because I'm in it for the beauty, not just the sex, and I want beauty to last me a lifetime.
If you're like me you'll love the photographs of Manfred Baumann. He has a knack for capturing those elusive moments of beauty that women create simply by breathing, moving and living their lives with us. These are the moments that stay burned in men's brains for years, sometimes forever.
So will the photos of Manfred Baumann. Our latest gallery of his is full of images that capture as closely as is possible to we humans, those times when a woman's beauty is truly breathtaking - which is: when she's right there in front of you, naked.
