Hope you like it! See you again soon ;P

actually the first thing i noticed were the entangled fingers. The seme holding his uke's hand, as if both holding him in place, and also comforting him.
But actually, the most intimate and intensive fact about that, is that it's not the seme grabbing the uke's whole hand, but their fingers are intertwined, which makes it look mutual. It's also the uke grabbing the seme's hand for comfort, and the seme, strong and protective granting him that.
in german there is the expression 'jemanden in der Hand haben' which would be translated as holding someone in one's hand. You say this, if someone would do something for the other, if he or she asked for it.
It's something like an expression for another person's dedication, and even if it's somewhat associated with negative thoughts in german, I think here, it fits perfectly.
This is the seme, holding his uke and the uke gives himself to his lover. In german selfless love may sometimes be considered as foolish, and I think in some ways it really is foolish.
But here, even if it looks that way to me, it is just perfect.

What's else to say about this picture, is that the pleasure is obvious on the uke's face, blushing, his eyes closed, lips parted as if he's just about to let out a faint moan.

The seme nibbling on the uke's neck. Sure, exposing one's neck to someone else is an act of deep trust, since that area is really sensitive.
Again I see, that it's mutual, the uke doesn't look, as if he's trying to get out of the situation (left alone the title also implies, that this is a mutual thing)
But still, there is that uke-ish shyness in the uke's posture, trying to cover his breast with the free arm.
It's usually a defensive action, crossing one's arms to protect oneself, that's just normal body-language.
But here it fits and doesn't make this seem violent, as it could have, since i've seen enough of other examples.
Also, both have their eyes closed. while I think, that it also shows one's trust to someone else, to turn one's back on the other, without protecting oneself. it's the same with closed eyes. even more, it's both of them experiencing this intimate act with their finest senses.

Let's get to the topic of clothing.
this is a little cliche. the dark haired, japanese uke with his ever so sexy disheveled kimono or yukata and the strong, (blonde) western seme.

the rest of the room looks somewhat western to me, so here the uke's clothing adds a little taste of an exotic and erotic feeling.

overall colors.
they're so gentle, so smooth. I'm really sensitive to harsh and strong colors. So here i think the colors are beautifully chosen. They depict this gentle love, that's no mad craving for each other, only in a carnal-desire-way.
this looks even more intimate.
at least to me.

all in one, the picture shows what's to be shown, not loosing the eye for beauty and details. It's a beautiful composition, putting the lovers in the center of the picture, since they are the most important thing in this artwork.
it's in a way elegant, not using too many patterns, but that doesn't make it boring. it's stylish.

There's nothing left to say, I sincerely admire you and your work!

Oh my. He's so shy, I feel body language for the one being kissed or biting on the neck. I like those lips you do on the guys in the pictures you do. Nice.
That light pink blush tone under his eyes closed, gives him the beauty. I like it. He's like "Oh".Heart 

I'm gonna add this to favorites if that's alright?
