It’s Time to Get Soaked in Passion

Water is a highly sensual playground, and can serve as an exciting alternative to the bedroom. From the shower, to bathtubs and Jacuzzis, pools, the ocean, lakes, rivers and brooks, there is a great deal of sexual pleasure that you can experience in water-considered by many to be a sensual and erotic aphrodisiac.

WET submerges you into new depths of ecstasy. Featuring full-color, highly artistic and titillating photographs, shot on location in Los Cabos, Mexico, the book provides readers with suggestions for various aquatic venues and sex positions, aqueous foreplay and masturbation techniques, methods for simultaneous orgasms underwater, recommendations for water-friendly sex toys, as well as sexy games you can play in and under the water.

Testimonials and anecdotes from people who have engaged in aquatic sex are also included. No matter what your particular situation, making love in the water can take you a step away from your typical love life and add some spontaneity and adventure to the mix. WET is an ideal book for honeymooners or people who treasure “vacation sex.”

West Greenland’s Tales

Greenland is a land of harshness and contrast. Dark and freezing-cold in winter, in summer it changes its face and bathes in sunshine for months on end. In the west of the huge island lies Disko Bay, a haven of still water and beautiful landscapes. The magnificent Sermeq Qujalek (Ilulissat Glacier), which connects to the bay through the 60km long Kangia Fjord, is one of the world’s fastest moving glaciers, constantly producing enormous icebergs, which float along the fjord to be dispersed in the bay. After a long summer where the sun never sets, it first touches the horizon in late July, producing unbelievable light on the bay and its icebergs. This is the perfect timing to set sail among these giants, capturing the arctic night in all its glory.

Trees, Woods & Forests

In this category we celebrate the tree in all its diverse forms. From the gnarled old oak to the mighty redwood, from the garden apple tree to the wild forests, we are inviting you to show us how important trees are in our lives and in the health of our planet. Winning tree images will reveal the treasures of our great woods and forests as well as the beauty of a solitary tree. How do people and trees live side by side in one world? How does a tree create a sense of well-being? The judges will be looking for tree images that seek to address these questions, as well as those that portray the simple beauty of our planet’s trees.
