Sexy Overload

For some reason writing this blog post was hard. Maybe it’s because the older I get is the more sex symbols I acquire. You know what I mean—just because a person gets older, or I get older, doesn’t mean I drop that hottie from the sexy-as-hell list. So, in my case, there were too many to choose from—old hunks, fictional hunks, young hunks—and my brain started going into overdrive. “Danger, danger! System overload…”

Then I suddenly realized there was something most of my sex symbols have in common…they all move. No, no, not like get up and walk across the room. I mean they REALLY move—dance or fight or do martial arts—something physically demanding and utterly awesome. Some of them aren’t even handsome in a traditional sense but, damn, who cares with the moves these guys can do? So, here I present a small, eclectic sampling of my acquired sex symbols from past to present, and I hope you enjoy!

Mikhail Baryshnikov

I knew almost nothing about ballet when I saw the movie, The Turning Point, but afterwards I was hooked—on Baryshnikov. How could he get his body into those positions? I wanted to know…personally…up close…very, very close…

Adrian Paul (Highlander series)

There’s something about a man in a trench coat, carrying a sword that’s irresistible, and when that man is Adrian Paul (“Duncan MacLeod, of the Clan MacLeod.” *sigh*), I’m done…or undone might be the more accurate phrase. To make it worse he not only wields a sword but does martial arts and dances a mean tango too. Yum!! Yes, when I see the reruns I desperately want to put him in a pair of low-slung jeans, but even with his waistband up way too high he’s still hot!

Worf (Star Trek, The Next Generation)

Forget about the ridged forehead (although that could get interesting…just sayin’), have you seen that Klingon use a Bat’leth? Now, don’t get me wrong, if Michael Dorn came to my door as himself there would be no turning him away. Just his voice alone is enough to do it for me. But if he turned up as Worf? The hubby might have a hard time getting me back!

Jet Li

O.M.G. There are a host of martial arts experts in the movie industry and I enjoy most of them, but Jet Li is the man for me. He’s cute, cut and has the nicest Chinese accent, but it’s the moves, people. The moves! There is a scene in the movie The One where Jet does a standing side kick that Rocks. My. World. every time I see it. Not to mention how he saved his daughter’s life during the tsunami in 2004. *melt*

Channing Tatum

I’m old enough to know better but hold on to your drawers…didya see Magic Mike? Can that boy move or WHAT? Good actor, cute guy, really nice body, but it was when I saw him shaking it on the stage that my head went up and I was like WHOA…

So there’s a tiny taste of my sexy list. Have you found there’s a common thread running through your list of hot men or women? On January 8th Sabrina admitted brains is what gets her going…what’s your top criteria??

  1. Your list looks like my list! I find the sexiest men to be the ones who are active. My list also includes Sean Connery, Jason Stathan, Mark Harmon, Mark Walberg, Vin Diesel, and too many more! LOL!

  2. For me, ever since i first laid eyes on him in 2009, it’s been Richard Armitage…. period…he’s my personal fantasy, and i use him for everything..^..^

  3. I’m so glad I’m not the only one with that criteria Suzlyne! There’s just something about a body (read cut, sexy body) in motion! Could also explain my love of American football, rugby etc. LOL!

    Richard Armitage is a hunk and a half, no doubt about it! Yum, is the word that comes to my mind 🙂

    Tina, you’re a girl after my own heart!

  4. I must admit that fighters also have their appeal but more the martial arts–that marriage of grace and strength, dance and danger, that gets me going. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen BloodSport to watch Jean Claude Van Dam move. In fact, nothing frustrates me more then when the give the martial arts fighters a gun as they get more famous–and they just blast away, no more dance.

  5. I couldn’t agree more, Sabrina. The appeal isn’t so much that they win, but in HOW they win. We want to see those moves!
