What is Sexy?

The "Sexiest Man Alive" for the year (apparently sexy has an expiration date) is Matt Damon. Ok. I was not consulted in the voting process.

I find men over 40, slightly rough around the edges, perhaps overly cultured-- yet barely restraining an inner barbarian, smart, strong, with a beautifully made body (not necessarily muscle-bound) to be sexy. A deep voice? Umm... yes. A somewhat overbearing stature? Ohhh... makes me want to aggravate him til he kisses me very hard and then looks completely bewildered by the act. Someone who can quote Shakespeare but would not be caught dead playing one of his roles. Someone who can afford a Maserati but drives a truck.

My absolute ideal? He's in his early fifties. Dark... greying... bronze eyes that make your toes curl. He's arrogant in that way you can't hate and has a voice that's deep, cultured, and rich, but it snags at the edges under just the right circumstances. He's smart, smooth, but occasionally trips on the bottom stair. He got a dog on purpose but rescued a one eyed cat because he's a good man. He hates when people find out he secretly loves the cat, too. He'll slip the leash on his temper at the drop of a hat, but can't stand to see a child in pain. He looks like he spends all his time at black-belt karate tournaments, but he spends most of it (lately) in front of the PSP3 he got for his birthday. (Oh, but he does have a black belt.) He has shoulders that can bear the weight of the world, a tired child, an overwhelmed friend, or a pair of wings.

Three guesses.

Matt Damon? Nice kid. What's your point, again?

I heard that 'didn't consult me' thing - I'm sorry, I find kids cute, not sexy. They look too close to the age of my own kids and their friends... ick. That early 50s thing and the description almost fits my guy, too, but he has green eyes, and he doesn't care who knows he loves his kitty. I'm the one with the big dog. And no black belt, but he's ex-military and really good with weapons, but is a marshmallow with the two grandbabies. :D So, yeah, I get where you're going with this, and yeah, oh yeah.

Viggo Mortensen, age 49, does it for me. When I saw Lord of the Rings, I thought, "Hot damn! Now, there's a man!"
