I posted this on the “sexy dresses” topic in the MPSIMS forum. No one responded. I’m posting it here, hoping that it was ignored not because it was a stupid question, but, rather, because it was simply a question, not a statement. handy posted “Men wear sexy clothing or try to look sexy too. Then they ignore women who look at them…” to which I responded:
What kind of men’s clothing is sexy??
I’m a 17-year old male. The only thing that I have worn in public that I could imagine as being sexy is [loose-fitting] shorts and a white undershirt that I cut the sleeves off of or a generic nylon basketball jersey. But this doesn’t seem to be provocative at all. If anything, I look like I just rolled out of bed and threw on a pair of shorts over my boxers.
Men’s fashions are just not made to be sexy. We have suits, which I guess are sexy to women who are attracted to money and prestige. It’s a rock and hard place: We’re either dressed nicely but are all covered up, or we show a little skin and look like we don’t give a crap about how we look, which in turn, consciously or sub-consciously gives the women around us the impression that we’re not even bothering to look decent because the women we’re with are not worth it.
And while we’re at it, why is it that if a woman wears tight clothing, she’s sexy, but if a man does so, he’s gay?
