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.
