X-ray

It looks very real, but it's an x-ray of two things that are rather dangerous to x-ray, the brain and testicles. Lol, if it is fake, it's of very high quality...

I don't know too much about X-Rays. It looks as though it picked up pubic hair around the testicle area, which I don't think they do. Also, as the OP says, you usually protect those sensitive areas when taking these kinds of photos! [Wink]

I don't know for sure if it would pick up hair or not either, but I would think that if the pubic hair showed up, then the hair on the head would've shown up too. I vote fake. (But that didn't stop it from going on my desktop!)

Oh man... I saw this and couldn't help but laugh. Fake or no, the only thing I can think is: Who gives blow jobs like that? Notice the woman's(?) teeth and the ghost image of her lips. She's... Blowing him with her teeth? o.o
Looks to me like she's about to bite it off. (Also of note is the bottom of the image where teeth and penis collide. Maybe she already did...)

Fake. No hair is visible on the head, yet pubic hairs show just fine. Also, the fingers have some wierd artifacts that look like they are made using an edge detection filter rather than an X-ray. All in all, the male body (assuming the other is female) does not look like an X-ray at all.

My guess: Real head X-ray, the rest is smart usage of filters.

Is it just me, or does the guy's hand look way too big in comparison to the head? Wouldn't an adult head be much bigger? If this was real, I'd be concerned about the age of the giver.

I've seen x-ray "movies" -- usually in some sort of documentary -- that show someone eating and swallowing food.

Since that was aimed at the head area (and went for a minute or so), I'd assume there is some "safe" way for the x-rays to be taken over such a length of time. The image of the "giver" reminds me of this.

I'll second those that have said the "giver" is real while the "receiver" is photoshopped.

The "receiver"'s body is opaque - if it were real, wouldn't the pelvis and leg bones be visible? And I don't think fingernails show up in x-rays.

I'll third the assumption that the head is real, the rest is fake.

My husband had that done after his stroke to make sure he could swallow food without choking. The whole thing lasted about forty minutes and was quite cool to watch.

I'm going with fake for the same reasons others are saying- shopped, real head x-ray and the person receiving looks merely like a "convert to negative" in a basic photo program.

Not to turn this post into a major sex discussion but a partner using their teeth is considered a fellatio technique. If the partner uses their teeth to very, very, VERY gently rake over the sensitive parts of their partner's penis, it will really stimulate them.

Just don't bite.

FAKE! FAKE! FAKE! (IMO, anyway)

As soon as I saw the picture, I had my suspicions; I said the same thing about the "odd-ness" of the fingernails and pubic hair showing up.

The hand on the "giver's" head makes me suspicious ... surely, if the jaw, skull and teeth can show up on the x-ray, the bones of the fingers would show up, too?

No internal structure to the manly bits. You should be able to make out the major blood vessels and the urethra.

Also, note the very dark spots just behind the teeth, where the penis overlaps with the woman's jaws: why is this so black? It should be only faintly gray. And, as noted, his pubic hair shows clearly, but the hair on her scalp doesn't show at all.

Lovely bit of art, but t'ain't real.

In x-rays the outside is black and the bones are white or gray. Also, no, you cannot see hair in an x-ray. Since I work with x-rays everyday, I know it's fake.

Some of your first link are from said artist of the pic on the OP (browse his page). The second one is sold as a piece of art (although as a "photograph" not a doctored image). Still, even if pictures like that exist (it isn't physically impossible at all) it does not invalidate any of the arguments for the original picture being a fake.

In my understanding, the fact that bones are white in an X-ray image stems from the fact that it's a photo-negative of the actual plate, in which the bones would appear black (the parts of the image where the X-rays did not expose the plate, because they were blocked by bone).
It's also my understanding that moving fuoroscopy images generally show the opposite...the bones are black. I don't think it's fair to declare "fake" simply because the bones aren't gray.

That said, there are other reasons to say fake.

In the end of this explanation I'm probably going to end up backing you up. Anyway, the person is standing, whatever in front of the xray screen thing. The plate (when processed) will turn black or gray where there wasn't much for the light/xray to travel through. Areas not covered by skin or bones will be black, and then fleshy areas, etc will be gray. Bones are white because they don't allow as much xray through as the skin does. Same as developing pictures (pretty much).

Yeah, I've probably said the same thing as you, Wonko, I'm just clearing this up partly for my head. [Smile]

The biggest one is the lack of the great vessels, anywhere. If nothing else, you should be able to see some of the penile vessels and the urethra. Same thing with the carotids/jugulars/vertebrals in the neck... something should be visible.

Also the fact that the penis is so easily seen. Only way soft tissue shows up that clearly is with some kind of marker. One of these was done by my cousin when he went to medical school- bone structure is clear, some great vessels can be seen, but little soft tissue. Silas basically had it right.

Biggest tipoff for me is the hair, though. Pubic hair is pretty dense, but it's not that much denser than head hair as to be so visible.

Sorry for the earlier shortness. I was getting pretty zapped.

The intestines in this one look real. Looks like a double contrast picture (barium and gas injected into the rectum cause that almost see-through look). However, the bones of the pelvis look weird in comparison to the bones of the hand. Because the pelvis is more dense than the hand, it should be brighter white and the hand should be less detailed and more gray. It looks like to me, someone took parts of a few real x-rays and photoshopped them all together.
