Since discussing Richard Armitage’s being callipygian and David Tennant’s sexiness, I have been mulling over the definition of what is “sexy.” According to the new urban slang, something can be sexy without having to do with sex. A thing can be sexy if it’s exciting or interesting; it gives you a thrill when thinking about it.
Being a geek, all electronics can be sexy to me. Yes, anything that smacks of computers, electronics, do-dads etc interests me. But all things electronic aren’t sexy. There has to be some panache, something special about it that captures my eye and inspires desire – to buy it. For example, a new Apple laptop launch arrested my attention:
No this is not free advertising for Apple (although it could be. Hi Apple!) I’m saying that this new, sleek, compact, screamingly fast, lightweight piece of beautiful engineering strongly appeals to my geek aesthetic sense; it’s sexy. It thrills me. I want it although I probably won’t buy it being indoctrinated in PC world. (Sorry Apple). But all that won’t stop me from finding it sexy.
So what about you Dear Reader? What things do you find sexy? The taste of chocolate? The smell of a favorite cologne or perfume? The sounds of a man cooking in the kitchen? You know there’s something that gives you buzz.
