According to boudoir photography, Mariah Carle, sexy photo shoots aren’t just for women anymore. Since opening her business five years ago, Carle has noticed a jump in her male clientele –they now make up about 25 percent of her business. Hence the term “dudeoir.”
“Many men feel good about their bodies and want photos to enjoy when they’re older. Some want to show off their weight loss, and others are looking to spice up their love lives. People think that women are the only ones who want to look and feel sexy. That’s not true,” Carle told Yahoo! Shine.
