    Hanes? Nothin’ but class…

    I think the “awkward” part is that he looks like he just sweated his ass off rubbing her from head to toe in massage oil. Look! There are beads of (sweat, water spritzed from a spray bottle, baby oil?) all over his arm.

    Also, I would think this would make a odd engagement photo, since they both have their wedding bands on.

    He’s sagging for Christ sake pull up your pants man!!!

  4. Michelle says:

    This shouldn’t be here. It’s a great photo.

  5. Barbie says:

    I can’t look at this without thinking of that song”love hurts”…. lol

  6. Szappacosta says:

    Obviously most of these “couple shots” on this website are engagement photos.

  7. Brina says:

    I actually like this picture…Guess I am one of the few…lol. I like that they went and did something different than the normal family portraits.

      For the love of God–She’s topless–and this is being sent out to people as their annual summer card! I can’t believe people don’t get how tacky this is. Crass~

        You *do* get that the “summer card” comment is the humorous caption added by the webmasters as a joke, right?

  8. Jenn says:

    I don’t get what all the fuss is about, I think it’s a beautiful picture that the couple can hang in their bedroom! They are both beautiful and the nakedness just adds sensuality to it!

  9. Washi says:

    Not that awkward… I doubt they knew this was submitted.

  10. A says:

    She looks a lil like Madonna.

    I think would be a better pic if they were not made to look like they were sweating profusely.

  11. Kai says:

    I am actually personal friends with this couple. This was not used a summer card and they are still together.

  12. Deanna says:

    Awesome pic! They look great!

  13. GeGe says:

    What’s he looking at? Seems like he’s looking at his biceps and not into her lovely eyes!

  14. Lizabeth says:

    I think she’s very pretty too; although her eye & lip make up is too heavy; makes her natural beauty look a bit “vamp-ish”. He’s quite a catch himself. To me, It’s the all the grease that’s the awkward thing. To me,They have a kind of romantic “Biker Look”… I hope that they are still together, seeing the world from the seat of their Harley.

    I think the caption might just be a joke.. I mean, who sends out summer cards? (I’ve never even heard of them)

  16. Em says:

    As my Grandmother would say, “Hitch up yer britches, young man!” What’s with the BVD shot?

  17. Nick says:

    It’s only weird as a Summer card. Otherwise it’s just a couple doing a pose from a dated advert and looking reasonably good in it. Not true awkwardness.

  18. Tracy says:

    I wonder what Grandma thought of her summer card? (Although I often wonder what Grandma thinks)

  19. Luke says:

    Crap. Not a good thing to think “this image is cool” when visiting your website.

  20. Virginia says:

    OK, so did the subjects in this AFP submit this themselves, having realized how freakin’ weird it is? Or did one of their friends/relatives get this in the mail?
