Jessica Simpson’s Intimate Selfie in Bed Makes Us Blush

Ewww! 19

jessica simpson eric johnsonWe love it when Jessica Simpson posts photos of her adorable kids. And we loved it when Jessica Simpson posted photos of her baby bump. But when Jessica Simpson posts a photo while kissing her husband in bed, I find myself stammering, "Oh, ah, excuse me!" and looking for the door. Except there is no door. There is only Jessica, Eric Johnson, their true, true love, and about seven million looky-loos. Why does this moment need to be shared?!?

"Goodnight kiss. I love this man," captions Jessica. Just in case we were under the mistaken impression that this was in fact a morning kiss and that she merely likes the man in the photo. Okay! Thanks for letting us know, Jessica! This is not at all awkward for us. I think I can smell Eric's breath from here. And it's not bad -- smells like he's used mouthwash. Good for him. I really don't think I should know what his breath smells like, though.

Now look, I'm super happy for Jessica. She looks blissed out -- every mom of two littles should be this in love. But why am I being invited into her BED? I don't care if this makes me an old-fashioned dork, I think photographing your Bed Love and then posting it on Instagram for the masses just cheapens that love. Intimacy is intimacy because it's, you know, intimate. It's not like Jessica and Eric are having a bed-in for peace, like John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Half of you probably have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.

My point is, ew. When you share a photograph, you are inviting the audience to join you in that space. And do you really want seven million people in your face while you recline on your pillows and kiss your man good night? I don't! Not that seven million people want to see me kissing my man in bed in the first place, but even if they did, the answer is NO, you cannot see that. Here's what I think would be cool to share.

  • Jessica and Eric kissing in a park while wearing clothes.
  • Jessica and Eric holding hands while walking down the beach.
  • Jessica and Eric smashing wedding cake in each other's faces.
  • Eric painting Jessica's toenails.
  • Jessica and Eric staring into each other's faces in a way that makes us smile for them but roll our eyes just a little.
  • Jessica pinching Eric's butt.

See? I am not such a prudish ogre. I'm all for Jessica sharing her love with her fans. Just not the pillow love.

Does this photo make you feel uncomfortable or do you love it?

I have seen,celeb or not,pics that are WAY worse. They aren't doing it. She isn't straddling him. You can't see more than their heads. I find nothing wrong with a pic of a couple kissing. That doesn't gross me out or make me feel weird. It's when it goes beyond kissing that I become uncomfortable. But maybe that's just me

I think it's sweet and she looks beautiful. I've seen much worse from other celebrities.

The more people need to "show everyone" how in love they are, the less I believe it. Pictures, Facebook posts, whatever. Maybe I'm just too cynical.

Jessica is the least of our worries.. Looks at Ks, Miley, Kanye just to name three and oir unconfortable with Jessica sharing her love and a tender moment the way man and woman should be.

First of all, as a final-year baby boomer, you bet I caught the "bed-in" reference:-) Second of all, I am not a proponent of or participant in any of the immediate, gotta see it/post it/get it social media stuff: I rarely even carry a cell phone, unless traveling. As for Jessica's photo: If it were in a magazine feature about her, we would think it was a tasteful and loving display. "Well," you might say: "I can choose if I want to look at a magazine." And I circle back to my earlier statement: It is a choice to engage in social media, and to sign up for all those accounts, and to select who you "follow." So: disengage.

There is nothing wrong with this photo. Jessica and Eric are just kissing- it's sweet, it's a little intimate, but it's not pornographic. The two just happen to be in bed, so what?

I think the photo is beautiful.  It shows true love, not lust as you the writer would like to portray it!  Get over it!

How about a photo of these parents of two GETTING MARRIED!

I think it's sweet! The only skin you see is their heads and a little of her is this even comparable to Kim K's ass, bikini clad celebs or anything Miley posts?! I don't see a single think about this that is inappropriate.
