Welcome to the Harem!
Explore the mysterious world of 1001 Arabic Nights. Fascinated by films and books about the harem i created a series of pictures showing young girls as princess, dancers, concubines or slaves of the harem.
The History of Harem
The harem. Mysterious and exotic location in the seraglio or palace of oriental monarchs. Living room, often prison, used for their many beautiful women. The harem is often associated with notions of erotic and wicked rituals from handsome captive concubine girls, there are tales of helpless young female slaves who are shipped to foreign oriental countries and they are just waiting for a shining hero to rescue her.
The classic story, in which a beautiful European woman is abducted by a vile sultan and imprisioned in his harem, and the heroic boyfriend / husband / brother / lover must save her, is stuff of countless adventure films and books.
Unfortunately, today there seems to be no more interest in such stories, because where once, in the heyday of great historical and adventure films like Fritz Lang’s Indian movies (The Tiger of Eschnapur and the Indian tomb), The Thief of Bagdad, Slaves of Babylon, Alibaba and the 40 thieves, or Elivis’ Lost in the Harem lived the myth, there is, at least on the film front, rather lack of harem.
Who wants to see harem in modern media, or at least wants to enjoy the costumes, needs to resort to current Bollywood films like Om Shanti Om, which always come up with a lot of beautiful women in fancy costumes, or he has to wait for the new Jerry Bruckheimer movie Prince of Persia – The Sands of Time, in which Gemma Arterton will be (as the trailer foreshadows ), a very sexy Harem Girl.
That the history of the real Harem, of course, does not correspond to our imagination, teach us the few historical sources, which we obtained.
In the Ottoman social life the entrance to the Harem was forbidden for outsiders. The women in the Harem were guarded by eunuchs, castrated men. The intent, of course, was that only a man, robbed of his manhood, was allowed to see the women of the Sultan.
In the Harem Mother Sultan was in charge. She was the highest-ranking woman and was able to dominate the entire harem. Another term for Mother Sultan was Favourite. In this context, I can recommend a wonderful comic book series: Djinn. Using very sexy and quite revealing drawings it narrates the story of a beautiful European woman, an English lady, who falls in love with the Favorite of the Sultan and follows her into the Harem. Lesbian women in harem, practical, or lesbians in the harem. Anyway, the series is highly recommended.
But let’s get further on in “History”: Either slaves or daughters of noble families could become Favorites. The slaves were bought by the Sultan or one of his subordinates, sometimes they have been given him as a gift.
Every woman in the harem had the goal to spend a night with the sultan. Interesting note: Because the Sultan was the successor of the Prophet, he was almost holy. A virgin who slept with the sultan, was so even after sexual intercourse still a virgin.
Of course, every Favorite desires to give birth to the first son to the Sultan, because this gives her the chance that she one day rules the whole Harem as Mother Sultan.
The photos on Sexy-Harem.de
The images of Sexy-Harem.de are a mix of many styles. I have elements of classic harem costumes (the prototype for this is always the lovely Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin movies) and I used a lot of Bollywood stuff. Or exotic variants of Gorean (Gorean slave) or Asian clothing. And there are, of course, a lot of elements from the belly dance.
The costumes are characterized most of all by the fact that they show more than they hide. Most of them are completley or semi-transparent, with a lot of jewelry and veils.
The girls who have their picture taken for the harem, are mostly amateur models. They really got into the idea of harem photos, and many of them I photographed more than once. Currently, I have more new requests than I can handle, but it also means that there is always adequate supply …
