What Sexy Is

by Dominique Eastwick 

Anyone who has read a Regency novel knows that nothing was sexier to a man then for a lady to show the slightest bit of ankle. Seems preposterous now thinking about how a woman on a beach wears next to nothing, but throughout history what is considered tantalizing has changed drastically.

In ancient Egypt, clothing was often scant or thin. With the heat and the sun, clothing was minimal and many, especially the upper classes, would shave their heads. Woman would use kohl around their eyes to help keep the bugs away. But what was really sexy at that time was for a woman to paint her lips red. It was intended to make men think of the vagina. Puts a new spin on lipstick, now doesn’t it?

Then in the Middle ages it was sexy to have a high forehead and women would shave their hair almost half way up their head. Who would have though a receding hairline would be sexy on a woman?

Now today what is sexy? Is it tight hiphuggers, skimpy miniskirts, Or is it more than that? I think what is sexy is and always will be what is forbidden. Perhaps like beauty sexy is in the eye of the beholder the question is how far are we willing to take it?  
Love to hear what you think sexy is…

Are they ready to gamble on a 1Night Stand?

Mia hides behind her computer, designing popular computer games. And though she knows just what to do to keep men coming back for more on the other end of the modem, she doesn’t seem to have the same knack in person.

Gavin hides behind numbers. Since his wife left him, the only thing he cares about is his son and his job. One failed relationship was enough, but if the right curvaceous woman came into the picture he just might manipulate the numbers a bit.

Can two meddling sisters enlist Madame Eve to bring Mia and Gavin together and show them two is always better than one?


  1. I don't think about women as sexy - maybe because I don't like women in that way. But a sexy guy? The clothes he wears, the way he wears them. So tux and loose bow tie and a smile on his face. ooh and dark haired just because!

  2. The sexiest thing on a man is attitude! Nothing like a man who knows who he is and what he wants and goes after it.

  3. I agree with Tanja. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it is very sexy!

  4. A confident man. A man who shows his love in small meaningful ways. Thanks!

  5. For me, its a man that doesn't think he is sexy. Just like my husband. He blush everytime I give him a compliment or say he's sexy. :)


  6. Great post!! I think a man/woman is sexy by they way they carry themself. With confidence, poise, and grace.
