— December 5, 2009 — Pop Culture
In 2009, we've seen a number of different takes on sensuality. Sure, a sprawling nude model will always win in the sensuality department, but this year we've also seen sensuous shoots that depict amputee models, women covered with tattoos and channel the retro circus and vaudeville era.

Below, you'll see 105 of our most viral takes on sensuality. No two are exactly alike; some use the word 'sensual' in its truest form of engaging the senses. After clicking through this sensuality cluster, which is your favorite interpretation?
