Sexy is as sexy does, some say. Others say sexy is what the media cranks out in millions of ads; tall, uber-thin models with fake breasts and lip implants. Sadly, the media blitz has brainwashed women into accepting the Barbie doll plastic appearance as the desired look if one wants to be attractive to men. “So not true!” say my San Antonio panel of observant men!
So what exactly do men find sexy about women?
Freckles! “Lots of freckles” says Vincent. Ladies will spend all kinds of money on makeup to cover up these alluring pigments when all they have to do is leave them uncovered! Men find them adorable. They like to play “kiss the freckle”, and on a woman they’ve just met, they wonder if the freckles continue below the chin. For men, freckles are an invitation, a challenge in which they want to count them to see how many there really are on her entire body. Much like Brad Paisley’s song “I’d like to check you for tics!”, just replace tics with freckles and you have it in a nutshell what men think about freckles.
Glasses. Women, again, spend money on contacts or Lasix to avoid wearing glasses, fearing the stigma of being the geeky girl or the nerd. And for what? Men find glasses to be darn sexy! Kevin said “A lot of women go to great lengths to hide that they wear glasses and quite a few men (me included) actually find it attractive.” It’s the ‘good girl’ allure. Guys think of women who wear glasses as smart and shy on the outside, but underneath those horn rims, they’re wildcats! Similar to how they feel about Catholic school girl uniforms, glasses illicit the same reaction from the opposite sex.
A Belly. No lie! Says Bill, “I know most women hate their bellies, but I am one belly connoisseur. Love that little bit of pillow to hold onto or even rest my head against! Plush!”
And here we ladies have been doing everything humanly possible to hide our kangaroo pouches. Exhale!
Gray Hair, Scars, and Wrinkles, oh my! Bill continues, “I will add to my last: silver strands of hair (love it!), and some evidence of having lived: wrinkles, scars, some sagging here or there.”
Sagging? You mean we don’t have to inject our faces with fish poison or go under the knife? The hell, you say! Who would have thought it?
Kevin adds “I agree with Bill, totally. Real women are so much sexier than the plastic ones they try and emulate.”
You hear that, ladies? Real women. Not those airbrushed, digitally sculpted, (and probably starving for a six-pack of chicken wings) models and celebrities.
Vulnerability and Inconsistency. Outdoorsman, Neil, said “I would have to say their inconsistency and their vulnerability! Makes you want to protect them, and it makes them a mystery; and ladies, we love a mystery!”
We women pride ourselves on our independence, so it’s hard to let that wall down. And we’re well aware that the inconsistency keeps you men guessing. That’s the whole point. Nice to know it’s appreciated!
Confidence, Intelligence, and that Special Something. Stan veered away from physical attributes and focused on character. “The sexiest, most attractive aspects of any woman are her intelligence, her confidence, and that little thing the French call “Je nais se quoi.”
What this discussion reveals is that women need not be so self-conscious about what they believe are there ‘flaws’. Turns out, those perceived flaws are actually a woman’s strongest attributes. Who knew?
