Oh the embarrassing things we do to create sex appeal. Don't know what I'm talking about? Puckering your lips in the camera, taking and retaking photos until you're pinup perfect or putting George Michael's "Careless Whisper" on repeat to create "the mood" are just a few examples.
What I've found is that when I try hard to fit into someone else's vision of sexiness, it generally tends to backfire. An ex-boyfriend of mine once told me that he thought it was sexy when a woman crawled slowly on the bed like a cat. That seemed simple enough. A few days later, I turned off the lights and proceeded to turn on my feline flare. Suddenly my knee had nowhere to go and I felt myself twisting off of the bed. It seemed to happen in slow motion, but there was nothing I could do to stop it.
I realized that forced attempts at what others perceived as being sexy just didn't work for me. I'm quirky and goofy and can't cat crawl to save my life. It's who I am and I've accepted that. Receiving compliments about my smarts and determination are the biggest "I'm Sexy and I Know It" moments for me.
Being myself is comfortable, free, and I won't end up on the floor next to the bed ;-)
