[Lifestyles] Sexy...

Yeah, I know people believe they are the sexist thing since slice bread, but in reality they’re just like everyone else. It’s funny to me how a lot of people use different networking sites like there own personal modeling portfolio. Let’s face some home truths. Not everyone is going to be or can be on American Next Top Model. There is a bigger possibility of hitting the lotto for most people, but yet… some people are willing to post photos of themselves online with as little on as possible. When I first started to use the internet, I was puzzled about how many people out there were willing to show there bodies without getting paid for it. I was 19 and was like a kid in a candy store. I was on a whole bunch of networking websites like Blackplanet, Migente, FortuneCity, and Go to name a few, just looking at people showing it all while pandering to the camera. That was in the late 90’s and early ’00… look how far we have come today… The digital age has made everything just a click away and easy to abuse.

There is no longer a taboo line. We are a culture that aspires to be sexy or reach some sort of perfection in the eyes of others. Some websites like have users upload there own photo onto the website so strangers can rate them on how they look. What kind of narcissistic behav
ior is that? How messed is your self esteem if you need strangers to valid your looks? Maybe that’s why I am not a Myspace or Facebook fan. Yeah, I have a page on both website and my Myspace page is all fixed up, but I rarely go on because everywhere I turn you have this one and that one trying to out do each other in how much they are willing to reveal.

These days what makes a person sexy? Is it their attitude? Body image? Bank account? (I personally think an IRA or 401k as very sexy!) Before the less you showed, the sexier you appeared but, now it’s like “Here’s my PENIS! Here’s my VAGINA” bouncing at you at every angle. Here is another home truth… Everyone Online is sexy… Hell, I can tell you I am 6’5, flawless skin with a solid muscle build and have a 14 inch penis! It’s not true of course, but some people are willing to believe that just because I might throw up a photo of some one fitting that description. Amenity is one of those things that the internet is best for. You can live through the eyes of some one for a moment and never reveal your true intention. That is how so many people get caught out there, believing that this drop dead gorgeous guy or girl would ever talk to them and then they see some one completely different in front of them.

If you enjoyed the conversation, phone calls and everything else, why do you care about what a person looks like? And on the flip side… Why would any try and device others with an image of some one that is not who they are?

Is it the sign of times or a progression of things to come? Don’t get me wrong… I like seeing nude bodies just like any man. My porn collection alone on this PC is over 20GB… but there is a limit (not to the porn, but what people should reveal online). A lot of people do not think about the long run. The things we do affect us even if we don’t think it does. Employers can fire an employee if they post certain scandalous photos of themselves online during their off time. Girlfriends, who thought they were sending there boyfriend a private photo of themselves suddenly find them online for the world to see. And let’s not even talk about the celebrities that were caught out there with the nude photo and/or sex tape. Look at the girl in the photo posted to this blog. She is cute, has a nice body and smile. However for the rest of her life she will be known as the girl who didn’t flush after that happy meal! I hope she wiped through because that would be equally as nasty.

“Posting photos of yourself in your underwear, while giving a sly sexy pose online is SOOO 1999.”
Get over yourself!!!*

To me, a person is sexist when they can get into your mind, heart and soul with just their words. Perfection is not the key since no one can claim to be everyone’s ideal. Back in the day there were actors and actresses that were sexy because they knew how to work there flaws and own them as if they weren’t flaws at all. Yup… I admit it. I am beginning to understand the phrase that less is more… revealing everything at once is not sexy, but just another cheap thrill.


*Excluding any one in my contacts that have sexy photos of themselves. I got love for you… so that means don’t curse me out!!!

ha Kenny very good post. I agree that people need to take into account, the fact that employers are watching even if they think they are not. Its so easy to type in a word and pics and blogs come up, that could really mess things up if we are not careful. Hmm I'm gonna let my niece read this, as we just had a discussion about her being in pics smoking weed on myspace. WTH?

You made some excellent points Kenny. While Sexy is a state of mind, some people claiming the title of sexy are MESSY!!! Photos have a way of coming out to haunt you.
