Sexy Women Pt 3 Devon



What makes someone sexy? What makes me sexy? As with most things, it's not simple. And the answer will vary from person to person. If you ask my friends, what makes me sexy, you might hear something about confidence and curves. If you ask my parents what makes me sexy, you might hear something about how children (even 30+ year old ones) are not sexy, they are asexual creatures who will be pure and "innocent" forever. Well, sorry dad...you will have to return to bliss-land where ignorance keeps us all happy, because I am sexy, damn it. And it's not any one thing. Nor is it even a few things. It's the whole package, stretch marks and all, that make me sexy. 

When I began belly dancing in 1999, I suffered from low self confidence and pretty intense body image issues. It wasn't a miracle cure by any means, but dancing helped me overcome many of those issues and build a sense of inner strength that I never came close to honestly having before. Yes, I would bark at the wind about my confidence and "inner beauty" but it wasn't until I could dance with my belly rolling rolls showing, that I began to actually believe it.




Who else wants to sign up for belly dancing classes now?  I sure as heck do!!

I think sexy actually has nothing to do with 'sex'. It is actually more about loving who you are, and when you really do, a light about you cannot be ignored. People are drawn to that! And belly dancing just looks wrong when tiny, petite attempt to do it. (Just sayin'). ;)

Belly dancing can be done by anybody with any body. Women and men. Fat and thin. My best friend is also a belly dancer and she is uber tiny; it is just her natural build. But she is a gorgeous dancer. The best dancers are the ones who are healthy, both physically and psychologically. Confidence in ones self can build a sense of sexiness...and having a sense of sexiness can build ones confidence. Well, at least that's how it works for me. :)

Also, I never said anything about "sex"...

I personally find confidence very alluring. I honestly find that I love to watch belly dancing no matter the size of the person doing it. I wish I had moves!
