Enough is ENOUGH!

Enough is ENOUGH! 

What do you American men WANT from us?  Okay, I KNOW…but really…who is coming up with the stuff that is supposed to turn men on? Or better yet, who is the “someone” who tells us ALL what it IS that turns men on?   

Before make-up came along it was ruby red lips and pink cheeks.  It was achieved by milling your mouth and pinching your cheeks. And let’s not forget the corset that made those curves curvier.  Add a curling iron, stockings and higher heels to the mix of shorter and shorter skirts and dresses. 

We have to shave WHAT?  Everything, WHO made that decision pray tell? 

Then it seemed blonde hair was all the rage using peroxide, lemon juice, what ever you had, just make that hair blonde; along with the sadists who invented pointy toed high heels and pantyhose (air…air…must have air); and the big hair, big eyes, false eye lashes and boyish figure of the sixties. 

Ah, a breathe of fresh air…for a brief period between Twiggy and disco there was the “back to nature” movement of no make-up, natural hair and comfortable clothing (ah…earth shoes).  Hand me a granola bar will ya? 

In the eighties women went on the hunt for doctors, doctors that did surgery!  For some it was about wanting to look better in her clothes (whatever that means); for others wanting to have the most gi-normous breasts that a female frame can hold.   

Somewhere in the 1990’s “someone” said it is all about toe cleavage… that’s right…all women “in the know” KNEW it was about TOE CLEAVAGE (I KID YOU NOT)!   

Now “someone” says it is lips, big full lips; straight white teeth; no wrinkles and seeing clavicle!  That’s right.  Seeing a woman’s clavicle is a turn on, sexy…so be sure and add that to your list.  Wonder if some will have surgery to achieve this one?  

So where does it end anyway?  When will we achieve this “perfect” woman, this turn on, knockout, sexy thing?  

So I’ve decided ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! 

I’ve decided I will be the “someone” who dictates what a turn on is to a man! 

Here is exactly what I think should turn a man on and it is one simple sentence! 

A woman who is devoted to you and any offspring you may have produced in this world. 

DEVOTED meaning: dedicated, lovingly committed, feeling or showing loyalty over a long period of time.   


So men out there…that doesn’t do it for you?   If you promise to be DEVOTED to US then you could probably get more of the other things you want!   

See it CAN be simple!   

Ladies, feel free to spread the word!!!!

    I happen to agree with you…who decides this stuff???? I am SO tired of being expected to “look” a certain way or I won’t be attractive to men!. What is most imoportant to me is how I feel about myself. If I am content with “me”, then the rest will come!
