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!

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…
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!
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!
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*
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??
There is such a thing called “The List.”
Each husband and each wife own one. This is the list of people that, if they show up at your front door, you’re allowed to go have insane, crazy, buck-wild monkey sex with, and your significant other won’t complain.
My list has a few people on it. The most interesting is probably Heidi Klum. (What? The woman is HOT.)
But, there at the top, is a single man. A man who’s one of the most phenomenal actors I’ve ever seen. A man who can take a role and twist it around his little finger. A man who’s pure magic.
Yes. I’m talking about him.
What can I say? I first fell in love when I saw him in “Chocolat.” This is the scene that did it: http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-c3IRf-2e8
The way he checks her out, then says “I’ll come around sometime and get that squeak out of your door.” And then smiles… MELT.
He’s gorgeous, that is undeniable. But the man has TALENT, too. Even when he plays a role that isn’t exactly “sexy”, like in “Sweeney Todd”, his sheer talent makes him appealing to me. I don’t know. He’s magnetic. He makes you drawn to him. And the fact that he looks like a total bad boy when he’s not in character? Holy sweet lord, pass the massage oil.
You may not agree with me. Channing Tatum currently occupies the top spot on a lot of people’s lists. And you know what? That’s fine. Channing can come by my house anytime he wants.
But if Johnny comes ’round?
So will I. 😉
Because this is my day to post, and I can, I’ll be putting a couple more pictures of Johnny below. You may need a few minutes. Please, take your time. 😉
