I love this blog. Steph always has interesting subjects and a wonderful way of discussing them. However, there's one thing I never understood, why "Skinny Jeans"? Why are women so preoccupied with being skinny? Do you really think men are out there thinking to themselves "oooh, look at her jutting collar bones and perfectly defined clavicle. That's sexy!" Believe me, half of us don't know what a clavicle is and the other half is too busy staring at your cleavage to notice your collarbones. Yet for some strange reason, women have become focused on this idea that skinny means sexy.
find this odd because I always thought looks were something we use to
attract each other. Now I know who I'm trying to attract and it's
women. So when I consider how I look, I ask a woman. Women however,
don't ask. Rather than asking your target audience (which is us men
for most although not all of you), you allow TV ads and magazines to
tell you what you should look like. Which is fine I suppose if you
want to attract TV ads and magazines but not so good if you were hoping
to attract us men. So let me enlighten you on what men find sexy. (more after the jump)
First of all, skinny is not sexy. Healthy is sexy, but skinny is not the same as healthy. That size zero you're dreaming of is not what we men dream of. Size zero means no curves, no breasts and a constant fear that I'm going to break something when I hug you. I don't want a women whose legs look like two thin little sticks, I want one who actually looks like a woman. Now I'm not saying that being overweight is good, I'm just saying you've taken weight loss too far and in doing so, you've lost touch with what makes you sexy.
When I dream of a sexy woman, I see one with curves. I see one who fills out her jeans, not drowns in them. I see legs with wonderfully toned muscles that stretch and contract with every movement. I see a magnificent rear end which moves with every step (I hate flat skinny butts that never move). I see a glorious body that screams out "I am a woman!" And best of all, I see the confidence of a woman who is at ease with her body. I see someone who loves her body as much as I do. She knows she's sexy and she not afraid to show it.
So please, keep your curves. Tone them up with some time in the gym if you want, but don't get rid of the very things that make you sexy because some magazine shows you a picture of an anorexic supermodel. I don't want her, I want you.
