Hey all,

Okay, so last night I decided I didn't have the energy to start reading a new book. So I just pulled one of my keeper books off the shelf. It was an old Harlequin Temptation.

Anyhow, I happened to come across the few pages where the hero and heroine started to get...frisky. And it had the hero looking at the hero wearing nothing but her socks and how he thought she looked sexy just like that.

Socks?

Lol. This is so silly, I know. But it got me thinking. Do men really think white, utilitarian socks and nothing else are sexy?

Well one time DH was at a buddies house watching football or something.  He came home kind of late. I was there wearing a blue pajama shorts set.  I had on white slouchy type socks.  He mauled when he got home.  He said the bare legs and the white socks were hot.  Go figure.

As women, we are focused on the fact that she is wearing the socks.  I think the men would be focused on the fact that she's not wearing anything else and think "oh, joy, I'm going to get lucky".  Reminds me of a couple of lines in Jennifer Crusie's Anyone But You.

 

"Charity, parts of me droop," Nina said.  "I don't think naked is a possibility here."

"You vastly overestimate how picky guys are about naked women," Charity told her.

Lol. You guys are too funny. Just for kicks, I looked up the actual sentence.

 

"Her white socks stayed on and he thought she looked very sexy like that."

 

I'm going to guess then that it wasn't necessarily that she was naked, but sexy in socks. Lol.

 

Whatever tickles the libido perhaps? Haha.

Reminds me of a Shania Twain song lyrics, Party for Two:

You'll be sexy in your socks
(We could polish the floors)

Maybe it plays into men's cheerleader fantasies?

Well DH said I had that classic "girl next door" look that time.  Then he said-every guy wants to "do" (not the word he used) the girl next door.

My hubby would poke me if I wore a potato sack.  As long as he "gets some", he doesn't care what I'm wearing!

You ladies are too much.... I love being in this forum and chatting with you.  :)

My husband has a thing for red toes.  If I want to get him in the mood I just need to paint my toes red and maybe slip on some cute little sandles.  I got these wedge heel pink flip flops type shoes. The band part is all gems (fake of course).  He loves these.

Aleast it was a pair of innocent socks and not granny panties that he found appealing.
