Should racy photos be in family photo albums?

I recently had to take a baby photo of myself to work for a bulletin board. I was looking through the family photo albums that my mom had made and between all of the pages of birthday parties, camping trips, Christmas mornings, etc she had put pages of photos of herself posed provocatively and wearing teddies, etc. She was covered about as much as she would have been with a swimsuit, but they were clearly sexy photos that were meant for sexual purposes. I was totally shocked and appalled, that these would not be kept in a separate private album for her and my dad. I also had to wonder what the motivation could be. These are albums that anybody that visits my house could look at, not to mention her son-in-laws, grandsons, family friends, etc. When I told my mom how inappropriate I thought it was, she said she'd remove them but both her and my dad said they didn't see what the big deal was. Am I overreacting here? Do you think it is acceptable to post pictures of grandma in sexy teddies, etc in family albums?

Ah well, some people just don't care if others see them in provocative moments. They're open and don't embarrass easily. Best you can do is go through other albums that your mom gave you and "proofread" them for undesirable content.lol

Cindy, did you really just ask Candace to show you sex kitten pictures of her mom? lol
Candace, it's probably not very appropriate, but chances are, your mother completely forgot they were even there. You're probably over reacting a tiny little bit, but seeing my mom like that would freak me out too! lol At the end of the day, there's nothing you can do about it now, so if you come across anymore of your mom's racy pictures, just take them out of the album, and give them back to her.

LOL, I would not be shocked at this at all... But then when I turned 18 my Mom pulled out her box of "stuff" to show me the fun things available. So while I never had a problem (as seemingly most people do, I'm not saying you do just that most people I know act like its the end of the world to have something said in front of them.) with knowing that my parents have and enjoy sex I NEVER had a desire to see her booby tassel's or elephant speedos of my dads... I did survive thou. I was home and helped my mom choose a sexy teddy to where for sexy shots for Dad I think I was 9 or 10. It all depends on you if you want your kids to see them thou, it sounds to me like you have a Mom who is confident in who she is and how she looks.

Hi Cindy! I definitely won't be posting them on the Internet, although it would give you a better idea. I will just say that the photos were very provocative, crawling toward camera in lacy lingerie, etc.

Hi thanks for your response. What is bothering me is that these weren't just placed there accidentally or forgotten about at all. She really just doesn't see why this might be inappropriate.
