Fifty Shades of My Grey
I thought today I might change things up a little.
Let’s talk about sex baby….(salt N pepa)
Of course I am not going to go all porno on you all…. but I quite like the idea of finding out what creates real sex appeal.
Is it wanting something you can’t have?
Is it all about looks?
It seems to me that as the world gets more and more modern we are becoming a society who are much more open to talking about sex.
We are embracing books like Fifty Shades of Grey, and it is standard to show your private parts on TV (One born every minute/ Embarrassing Bodies). I can only imagine that anyone from the 1920’s that grew up used to a fashion of skirts below the knee and covered up chests, would look at us nowadays and think that we are walking nymphomaniacs.
Lust and Obsession through sexual attraction is all over the place whether it is directed at Boy Bands like One Direction or Actors like Robert Pattinson or Models like Rosie Huntington Whitely.
Everyone loves a bit of sex appeal.
Something to crave and make you weak at the knees.
Is attraction on the basis of sexual desire or the quality of arousing such interest. The attraction can be to the physical or other qualities or traits of a person. The attraction may be to a person’s looks or movements or to their voice or smell, besides other factors. The attraction may be enhanced by a person’s adornments, clothing, perfume, hair length and style, and anything else which can attract the sexual interest of another person.
So what is so special about One Direction and Harry Styles?
According to the definition it could be his hair length or style. However I cannot help but look at him and think that he looks like a little child, and that doing anything intimate with him would be sooo wrong! Yet there must be something about him, take a look at all of these older presenters who fall in love with him and end marriages because of him. The only thing you can give him is that he is good looking.
Robin Thicke on the other hand looks like an older man who is trying really hard to be Justin Timberlake. Yet when I went to his concert last night women were throwing themselves at the stage and trying to undress him. My sister and me, with disgusted looks, almost burst out laughing. He resembled an older man bouncing around the stage in a Ricky Martin type style-basically like your dad embarrassingly dancing at your party with all your friends-that is exactly the kind of performance he gives off.
What about Robert Pattinson…his face is as flat as a pancake and he really is not good looking. He was in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but hardly was noticed amongst the many good looking wizards. Yet the moment he got chosen to star in Twilight that was it..he takes off over night. Suddenly he is a massive heartthrob.
However it is not all plain sailing for wannabe actor heartthrobs, the journey often begins when they are chosen to play a fictional character who is loved by all women. At first it is rare if any of the fans actually like the casting I mean no one wanted Robert Pattinson at first, but when they saw him in the trailer for the first time they all started to fall under the power of Hollywood makeovers.
This leads me on to the new upcoming casting news surrounding one of the most famous Romantic Erotic Novels to ever surface for women: Fifty Shades of Grey! Whilst everyone was desperate to hear the casting news they all wanted to hear who they wanted to play the part, without taking into consideration the production costs etc. No surprise then that an actor who was less known but still a celebrity, Charlie Hunnam, was chosen to play the lead role of the sexy man who seduces Anastasia (again played by an Actress no one has ever heard of- Dakota Johnson.) Yet the inevitability is that once the trailer hits youtube everyone will start talking about how hot the guy looks now and that they always knew he was the best choice for the role…the beginning of the next heartthrob.
How does it happen? How do you go from being nothing/ugly to being a heartthrob?
It is more interesting when you look at someone who really should not be attractive and yet the women love them:
Russell Brand-with his greasy long hair and sleazy attitude, women throw themselves at him. Is he charming? There must be something about him that makes women want to drop their pants and jump into bed with him.
Jack Nicholson is known for being a heartthrob-all I have is one word WTF!
Hugh Hefner? Charlie Sheen?
All of these men have been known as Lotharios and spent years going from one woman to the next but do not have the stereotypical good looks that we all think they need in order for us to swoon.
Of course it is all in the eye of the beholder but there is something amazing when one guy is able to make the whole world quiver in their shoes and bend over backwards-quite literally!
Perhaps this is a note to all future actors that want to become Lotharios:
- Grow your hair like Harry Styles.
- Act Sleazy and Charming at the same time like Russell Brand.
- Make sure your hair is greasy.
- Dance like your Dad.
- Sing to naked women.
Last but not least make sure you have some sexy tricks up your sleeve Fifty Shade’s style…..
