You don’t have to be butt-naked to be sexy

I’ve been seeing a lot of scantily-clad people in mainstream media and it got me thinking, what exactly do people consider sexy?

I mean, I know “sex sells”, but sometimes mainstream media’s just taking it too far, to the point that people themselves apply this belief on a daily basis, making it seem like everything is alright indecent or otherwise. I might sound like I’m whining, but it seems like this kind of lewd sexiness is being extremely sensationalized in television, the magazines and even in video games, and even if it’s appealing, too much of it will have repercussions.

Call me old-fashioned, but actresses like Audrey Hephburn, Cate Blanchet and Kate Beckinsale are ladies who I find as sexy, as opposed to someone who’s scantily-clad (which most people would consider sexy nowadays). Their beauty enchanced by the way they carry themselves with their grace and elegance is what I consider ‘true sexiness’. Sadly I’m afraid that sooner or later this kind of beauty will be all but forgotten thanks to what people percieve as ‘sexy’.

I just hope it’s not too late to change it.

  1. I think TV glamorized sexiness vs. beauty and grace. Besides with all these camera tricks, makeup, and lighting, it seems as if beauty on the screen is hard to achieve for the average woman. But hey, most of us can run around half naked and achieve that sexy look. It is much easier!

  2. so…you talk about actresses who are bone-thin. i wasn’t familiar with cate blanchet, so i looked her up. as i saw the picture of her bones showing through the back of her open dress cut to her bottom, i realize that it is people like you who say you are for change, and then continually perpetuate the cycle of “”Beauty””
    great job
