What's sexy What's not

I try not to come across as someone who is attracted to people and things merely because of appearances. Using my heart vs. my eyes in most cases. But thank God for eyes! Without them we couldn't see... "Colors." People. Things. The light. Or we couldn't distinguish that red lipstick from the pink. I love all of my senses! Smelling certain things and touching others, is almost as good as tasting mango! But what is sexy? Is it a taste? A sensation? An aroma? A sound? A color? Here are a few examples according to my sensibilities..

What's Sexy:

A man who understands women..

A Stylish Crooner who's been there..
(the one on the right. MJB)

Bette Midler's Smile.
Bette Midler's Legs.
Bette Midler's Energy.
Bette Midler's Attitude.
Bette Midler's Spirit.
Anything Bette Midler..

Bracelets.. Lot's of 'em

Juicy Ripe Mango..

Guitarist's Hands.

A man in a custom made shirt.

The Temptations.
These 5 Pretty Boys in Purple Suits
-Pretending to be Temps.
And this ReMix of "My Girl"...

What's Not.

I'm just going to lay it out there for Brother West and other vocalists of his genre..

First, this excerpt from his memoir...

“The basic problem with my love relationships with women is that my standards are so high -- and they apply equally to both of us. I seek full-blast mutual intensity, fully fledged mutual acceptance, full-blown mutual flourishing, and fully felt peace and joy with each other. This requires a level of physical attraction, personal adoration, and moral admiration that is hard to find. And it shares a depth of trust and openness for a genuine soul-sharing with a mutual respect for a calling to each other and to others. Does such a woman exist for me? Only God knows and I eagerly await this divine unfolding. Like Heathcliff and Catherine’s relationship in Emily Bronte’s remarkable novel Wuthering Heights or Franz Schubert’s tempestuous piano Sonata No. 21 in B flat (D.960) I will not let life or death stand in the way of this sublime and funky love that I crave!”

YIKES! Is he seriously in search of another woman? Hasn't he been married four times, already?

Here goes: WE CAN'T SEE YOUR FOREST FOR YOUR TREES, BROTHER! Not just your finger nails, facial hair & those glasses. But all that full blast, fully fledged, full blown high standards and rhetoric, too.. Just my humble opinion.

To appear so 'deep', Brother West sounds like he just wants to be validated and loved just as any man (or woman) does and doesn't know how to express it, thus his multiple marriages.
