Ladies, beware—when you wear the color red, you may be driving men insane.
I hate rules. I hate telling women to follow them. I like offering mindful 'dos' and 'don'ts' that women can use as guidelines to make sure they are on track with acting like one half of a considerate, respectful, loving, and caring whole. Rules, on the other hand, seem stifling and repressing to a woman’s individuality. I think, however, that the following rule is very empowering and actually helps relieve women of stifling insecurities and releases repressed sexual urges. So I will allow myself to suggest it. Here it is:
It's a known fact that men are visual creatures, which is why they're attracted to women who dress up their own natural beauty. But, does this mean you need a Clueless-type makeover to get a guy to like you? Doesn't that seem like you're changing yourself for him?
When it was announced that the skinny, petite-framed Michelle Williams was cast to portray Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film, My Week With Marilyn, the blogosphere exploded with negative criticism. People claimed Williams wasn't physically designed for the role— that she was too thin to portray the curvy, sexy film star, and could never pull it off.
Go ahead, be sexy at work. Be flirtatious. It may seem like it sets feminism back 1,000 years to say it, but the fact is, in a male-dominated industry, one of the smartest things a woman can do is use her feminine wiles to rise to the top.
Salma Hayek is 44? Well, she certainly doesn't look it on the cover of Allure's September issue! The actress recently took some time apart from promoting her new cosmetics line, Nuance, to talk to the magazine about aging, and, well, being so darn sexy!
The word "sex" may have more explosive connotations and baffling confusion attached to it than any other word in the English language. And the idea of "sex appeal" is just the same. It's got power all right. We all want to have sex appeal. We might not agree on exactly what the term means, but if someone accused us of having it, we wouldn't argue with them.
I don't know that a formal survey's been done, but I think it's safe to say that in the eyes of most straight men in America, turbans on a women's head aren't hot. Neither are ostrich-feather miniskirts, utility pants, or capes. To many guys, tight, form-fitting, and revealing fashions constitute "sexy." And isn't that what fashion is supposed to be all about? Getting us to look at one woman rather than another?
It sounds strange but smiling could be the key to finding your perfect partner. Research has consistently shown that people notice other people’s smiles almost straight away, meaning your smile could be the most important tool for creating a positive first impression.
Yet again, Robert Pattinson has said something that takes our lust levels down a notch when it comes to crushing on the brooding, be-glittered one. This time it's to the U.K.'s Daily Mirror about how much of a limp-fisted wimp he was in a fight scene with a stunt man for Remember Me:
Yesterday, the Daily Mail reported that sex for women over the age of 35 is rapidly declining — or, at least, people are more willing to admit to declining sex in their relationships than they used to be. Today, the same paper is suggesting this trend could be blamed on men's increased preference for Internet pornography over sex.
Complex magazine's recent list of hot women in Hollywood who are actually funny (their phrasing, not ours) inspired us to highlight the funny blokes out there who are actually good-looking. While most of us lady folk are wise to the fact that laughs last longer than looks, we still appreciate a side of smoking (hot) with our joking. Hey, if supermodels were hilarious, they'd be on this list. As is, here are men who make us sweat with their perfect combo of humor and handsomeness.
