What is sexy?
Having sexual appeal; suggestive of sex?
Well, that’s the dictionary definition.
But “sexy” can mean anything.
Some religious extremists consider the sound made by women’s high heels “sexy”.
Last year, women in a northern Malaysian city ruled by conservative Islamists were urged to forsake bright lipstick and noisy high heels in an effort to preserve their dignity and avoid rape.
Authorities in Kota Bharu have distributed pamphlets recommending that Muslim women do not wear heavy makeup when they go out.
Loud high-heel shoes should also be avoided, though if women insisted on wearing them the heels could be padded with rubber to mute the sound.
Those Taliban types think that the sound made by high heels can cause sexual arousal in men.
Wriggling butts are ok but not sounds made by high heels huh?
You may think these motherfuckers are sick but then who’s to judge?
Maybe they are shoe fetishes.
Jokes aside, I notice that the more you suppress sex, the more perverted you get.
Didn’t Malaysian strongman Mahathir Mohamad himself once said Muslims who wear headscarves and other such orthodox clothes commit sexual offenses and other crimes just as often as those who do not? Indeed, “Dr M” noted that Muslims commit proportionately more sex crimes than any other group in Malaysia.
Does it mean that if a society is more open about sex, there will be less sex crimes?
During my visits to Sweden I have been shocked by the easy availability of porn – and some very very hardcore porn – yet a report last month says Sweden has the highest incidence of reported rapes in Europe.
In Sweden, 46 incidents of rape are reported per 100,000 residents.
This figure is double as many as in the UK which reports 23 cases, and four times that of the other Nordic countries, Germany and France. The figure is up to 20 times the figure for certain countries in southern and eastern Europe.
Early sexual debuts, high alcohol consumption, “free sexuality” and the “right to say no” quite simply results in more rapes, the study concludes.
Back to what is sexy.
When it comes to sex isn’t it a case of different folks, different strokes?
But is a naked woman prancing around sexy?
Or would a half-naked woman be sexier?
Would an older woman be sexy?
Or would a prepubsecent girl be sexier? (Think Natalie Portman in The Professional.)
What about body parts?
Are breasts sexier than legs?
What about lips?
Desmond Morris says that these puffy, everted organs mimic the genital labia.
I think that’s a bit of a stretch, if you’ll pardon the pun.
Some say eyes are windows to the soul.
Large eyes accompanied by that woebegone look are supposed to be sexy.
Puppies can look that way too.
Probably cheaper to maintain too (emotionally and all the rest of it…)
And they don’t talk back.
Eyes as windows to someone’s soul?
I’ve never understood that.
Well, that’s maybe because bacteria is the only culture I have.
Unlike some others, I’m not much of a deep thinker.
Sometimes the word “sexy” is used in non-human terms, like “change management is sexy but SAP implementation is not.”
But generally “sexy” applies to homo sapiens.
Some call it “The X Factor.”
That too can mean many things.
Some prefer the whipcracking dominatrix types.
Men who fall in love with these types tend to be pussywhipped all their lives.
Scared shitless of their wives.
Maybe deep down inside, they’re masochists.
Other men prefer those helpless, damsel-in-distress types.
Yet others opt for the demure, submissive types.
But what’s sexy to one person may not cause a reaction in others.
After all didn’t they say one man’s meat is another man’s poison and that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder?
Or is it the beer holder?
After a couple of beers, even a butch may appear to be sexy, right?
Which seems to be what many young girls are discovering nowadays, to my horror.
I don’t know about you but I seem to see more lesbian couples around these days.
Now, that’s NOT sexy!
