“I’m too sexy for my shirt too sexy for my shirt
So sexy it hurts
And I’m too sexy for Milan too sexy for Milan
New York and Japan”
~ Right Said Fred
What defines “sexy” or “sex appeal?” Is it a physical trait or a personal quality? Or a mix of the two? Pheromones? Can sexy be defined?
Some years ago I co-authored a story. My character was asked, “Preference? Breasts – eyes – neck – feet – lips or legs?”
He replied for me, “… none of the above and all of the above. Sex appeal to me is in the whole package – often a fully clad woman is far more sexy and desirable than a naked one – I guess the imagination plays a big role. I think of a woman as a package – to be worshipped, savoured, and enjoyed, slowly or greedily, as the situation dictates…”
So, clearly, I cannot pinpoint sex appeal, although I know when it requires unwrapping…
