The other day a reader e-mailed me about a topic he had been thinking about recently. I don’t know exactly what triggered this question, but the reader was curious about if I had ever noticed a woman doing a fairly normal, everyday activity and found it unexpectedly sexy. The example he referenced was that a woman wearing a bikini at the beach is expectedly sexy, while a woman shopping for power drills at Home Depot is unexpectedly sexy.
I mentioned this idea to fellow blogger Penelope, and we decided to write companion entries about things we find expectedly sexy about the opposite sex. The pattern I see in my responses is I find women unexpectedly sexy doing things or in situations that are stereotypically male; also, if a woman shows that she is aware of the needs of others–especially strangers–I find that incredibly sexy. There are a few others that fit into neither category.
How to Be Unexpectedly Sexy (for Women)
I hope this doesn’t come across as chauvinistic. I’m pretty sensitive to that ever since someone accused me of being a chauvinist in the comments section in a post a few months ago.
