Is it OK to be sexy? Okiedoke wants to know.

As loyal readers know, Mike at Okiedoke recently won the Lip Schtick guest blogger challenge. I have to admit, I was quite pleased that a fellow Oklahoman won, and such a fine blogger at that.

Be sure to check out his site early and often - and be sure to tell him LilRed says "Hi!"

Thank you to the other awesome bloggers who played ... I certainly hope you all check back soon for more tomfoolery - Lip Schtick style.

So, without further ado, I give you (via my blogalicious buddy Mike):

Is it OK to be sexy?

Being a wise-ass blogger myself, I thought it appropriate to use this opportunity as a guest on a women's blog to raise a serious question I have as a male: How do women view being "sexy"?

My take is that men and women don't always see eye to eye when it comes to a sexy female. Now, I'm not talking gorgeous or slutty, I'm suggesting an attractive woman with an air of confidence, charm and wit. A regular gal whose demeanor appeals to both sexes.

Or is this even possible?

As a 51 year old man, I can appreciate sexy mature women along with the traditional Hollywood starlit types. And a woman's sexiness does not depend on the amount of her make-up or the height of her skirt. While I still enjoy the sight of a nude woman, being sexy to me doesn't require the desire to "do it" and envision her naked. Perhaps my own definition of sexy is askew.

I set up a website to recognize Oklahoma women who are both sexy and in a position of power. I have received a wide variety of responses to this endeavor; from "slightly insane" to "neat idea". Both men and women have submitted nominees as among

Oklahoma's Sexiest Power Women.

The variety of nominees is testament to people's broad views of sexiness. Even staff at the Central Oklahoma Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation are suggesting the Board of Directors consider sponsoring the activity as a possible fundraiser.

In any case, this sexy woman thing confuses me. And I think it also confuses young girls and boys. Are mature women even comfortable with being sexy? Is it only used for the purpose of enticing a mate?

What does "sexy" even mean anymore?

Thanks again, Mike. It has indeed been fun ... hope to do it again real soon.

You should receive my nomination (for myself of course) any day now.

As a 38 year old female, sexy to me isn't that far from your view of sexy. It certainly is okay to be considered sexy and the older I get the more I appreciate being thought of as sexy (even if it is only by my husband).

A sexy woman is attractive with a polished air of confidence. She knows how to carry herself and how to interact with all; regardless of ethnic background or social class.

A quest to be sexy is not just for the purpose of enticing men.

I have been cursed with sexiness for most of my adulthood. As a "compliment" a guy once told me "You are sometimes pretty but you are always, always sexy." I would have preferred pretty.
