Bringing Sexy Back: A Different Look At What It Means To Be Sexy Today

bringing-sexy-back-interpretation

I write a lot about technology as it relates to beauty. Whether it’s an app to airbrush your face in your Facebook pictures, a device to make your body look different, or even a tooth implant to help regulate calories, I’ve probably written about. It’s all just in good fun though. The truth is, the world as we know it can chip away at the self-esteem and confidence in girls and women. Today it’s about bringing sexy back.

As a woman, I know firsthand what it’s like to try to fit into what society says is beautiful and sexy. I remember being concerned about that when I was as young as thirteen. These days, some girls start talking about dieting when they’re as young as six or seven.

I have big boobs, and I have since I was a teenager. In high school, I remember trying to squish them so they’d look smaller because back then, small boobs were considered sexy. Looking back, that was so stupid. Girls these days have it much harder.

In addition to trying to fit into what society says is beautiful and sexy, now girls have to deal with online standards too. Whether it’s on Facebook, Tumblr or any one of the many teenage social sites, young girls publish “sexy selfies” often. Many times their self-esteem is wrapped up in the response they get to those photos.

Since when did getting a lot of likes on Facebook, reblogs/notes on Tumblr, retweets on Twitter or +1s on Google Plus equate to being beautiful or sexy? When you start thinking about it, it’s twisted. If aliens were analyzing that behavior, they’d surely be very confused. But when you’re in the middle of it, it can feel like your whole world.

When I wrote in the beginning of this article that it’s about bringing sexy back, I meant real sexiness. Being sexy is not about being a certain size, wearing certain clothes or talking a certain way. Being sexy is about radiating happiness, joy and kindness from the inside out. I know it sounds cliché, and I know 14-year-old me would be rolling my eyes right now. But at the risk of sounding like my mother, I want you to know it’s true.

This chart called Bringing Sexy Back by Paige Snider explains what I’m trying to say perfectly. As she so eloquently puts it, “Sexy is whatever the f*** you want it to be.” Try that kind of confidence on for size, and see how you feel. I promise you, it will be a much better fit.
