Photography is a visual medium. But if we can infer additional senses then we can build a stronger image.
The senses introduced may be abstract concepts or sensations that are more physical.
The use of textures within an image introduces a sense of touch. This is a very concrete physical sensation.
Camera angles introduce a sense of height and even vertigo. Simple motion blur invokes a sense of motion. There are more abstract.
The use of fur within a nude image always adds a concrete sense: the sense of touch. It is very easy for us to imagine our fingers moving through the fur.
In this way, we have instantly added an additional sense to this image.
There is also an inferred sense of glamour and richness. Furs are always associated with wealth.
