I’m going to veer a little off the beaten path with this post, and this might seem a little odd, given this wonderful, attitude-filled nude photoshoot, but my favorite moment of camp with Darby came while everyone was dressed.

Weird, I know. Just bare with me (see what I did there?) (Yes, my jokes are all Dad jokes that I’ve used a million times. So what?)

Anyway, I was telling Darby about this, and tried to demonstrate.

The fucking mug wouldn’t hiss. Because of course it wouldn’t. Later, I got some fresh hot coffee, and started to take the mug over to Darby and again, the mug wouldn’t hiss. It was funny, because if Darby was nowhere to be found, the mug did its usual thing, but if Darby was nearby…

It was really getting on my nerves at one point, but it was also making me laugh. My Sex Geek Summer Camp mug is clever and recalcitrant.

At least Darby and I got some time to get a shoot in, and we laughed about the stupid mug, and had a generally good time in the woods while we shot. I just gave up on the mug and focused on Darby and the totally bad-ass attitude she brought to the table.

There’s just something about this shoot that says to me, “I don’t take shit from anyone,” and I love it. It’s interesting to me how different shoots have different feels to them, and they each reflect some particular aspect of the model’s personality. It’s like I could do a bunch of different shoots with different people, and the shoots would all have their own vibe, or even do several shoots in the same location with the same person, on different days, and get completely different shoots.

Anyway, Darby and I had a good time doing these shots, and a good laugh at my expense due to the coffee mug during camp. It’s a silly little thing to remember about Sex Geek Summer Camp this year, but it makes me happy in the same way this shoot made me happy.

(I did eventually manage to take a short video of the hissing mug after camp was over, and sent it along, just so Darby wouldn’t think I’d completely lost my mind.)
