I'm Too Sexy For My Blog

Many of you remember we got in some heated discussions about the gender gap, sex, male/female relationships, etc. not too long ago.  If you need a refresher you can go back and read those posts here, here, here and here.  People got pretty riled up by some of those gender/sex related posts.

Last Friday, Neil from Citizen of the Month published a post referencing those discussions here on Twenty Four At Heart.  If you'd like to click on the link and read Neil's post I'll wait patiently for you to come back.  Dum, dee, dum, dum ….

OK, everybody back?  I was really excited Neil referenced Twenty Four At Heart.  I'm pretty new to the blogosphere, but Neil is a bigwig.  He's, like, all famous and stuff.  I'm a little bit starstruck by Neil and all his fame.  Plus, he seems like a genuinely nice guy.  It's a big deal in my teeny, tiny, corner of the Internet to be mentioned by someone big and important.  (No comments about how big Neil may or may not be, please.)

In any case, I read Neil's post early Friday morning and I've been thinking about it, and many of the comments his readers left, ever since.  Neil left a comment for me back in August which made him sound above most men with their common, animal, lust. 

Many of my female readers immediately fell head over heels for Neil based off of his comment alone.  However, last Friday Neil confessed that he rarely has a conversation with a woman without imagining her without her clothes on at least once while they're talking.  His readers then left comments about whether or not they mentally undress people all day long too.

Black Hockey Jesus left a comment on Neil's post last Friday.  When I asked him last weekend, BHJ said he wouldn't mind me sharing it with you.  BHJ has a talent for speaking his mind. 

BHJ said:
"Fucking is just a metaphor for connecting with a woman. What do they
want us to think about? Holding hands and sharing feelings? I would
rather fuck them."

Well then. 
Any of you want a date with BHJ? 

BHJ needs to be commended for his honesty.  How many men feel the same way, but won't verbalize those thoughts due to their fear of female retaliation?  Or in other words, the fear of not getting laid?

Ever since I read Neil's post I've been disrobing every single man I see.  Mentally.  Not in real life because that would be, hmmm, inappropriate.  I don't think I normally do this.  There are men I've known for a very long time and I've never thought of them sexually at all.  Neil's post, however, did something disturbing to my brain.  I keep hoping my cognitive stripping of every man I see will stop any minute, but so far it hasn't. 

You might think this is a wonderful, titillating, phenomenon but it's not.  There's this old guy named Rubin at PT.  He is really, really, old.  In fact, if I'm being honest, Rubin looks like he's already dead.  I don't want to see Rubin naked in my head.  No, I certainly don't.  I looked over the other day and there Rubin was.  I tried to look away as fast as possible, but it was no use.  A quick image of naked Rubin flashed in my brain.  It was not a good experience.  It's haunting me still.

Last weekend a girlfriend of mine called.  She was chatting and mentioned a man we both know.  He's a male friend of mine who I can honestly say I've never had a sexual thought about.  Then she asked, "Have you ever noticed he's really hung?"   No, no, no!  I have never noticed.  And now?  What do you think I'm going to be looking at next time I see him?  Why did she put that thought into my head?  And will I ever, for the rest of my life, be able to think of this man without her words repeating themselves in my head?  Now, not only am I mentally undressing every man I see, I have her words echoing in my brain as well.

On the positive side, do you remember I mentioned Male Specimen last week?  Yeah, well it isn't quite as disturbing to have images of him flashing in my head as it is of Rubin.  I'm blaming Neil for somehow causing all this.  I'm sure it will eventually fade away and I'll return to my own personal version of "normal". 

In the meantime, I'd like a little honesty from all of you.  Do you visualize people in your life naked as you talk with them throughout the day?  All people?  Or just the attractive ones?  How often?  Are you flashing mental images of nude people often or just once in awhile?  Also, after reading this post will you be seeing visions of everyone disrobed all day today?

    I am ,on the ocassion when I forced (ahem)to view a rather obvious “package”; prone to ponder….. how much of it is “frank” and how much is “beans”. Sometimes I get lost in speculation, something further……… am I staring??

  2. Gina

    i plan on trying this out today…. i expect to be both turned on and disgusted at various times!

    I only mentally disrobe people (okay, men) if I intend to have sex with them. Since I’ve only had sex with one person in the last 10 years and I see him naked a LOT, I haven’t mentally disrobed anyone in a very, very long time.
    Hey, I never said my life was exiting. However, your post began some rampant speculation on my part (as usual) and I began to mentally disrobe the men I personally know.
    I apparently only know men who are better left with their clothes on. By the time I got to the neighbor who lives directly behind us, I was sobbing, I was so traumatized.
    You’ll be receiving the therapist bill shortly.

    Honestly, unless a woman is wearing somewhat revealing clothes, I don’t have a problem with this. Disrobing women while I’m talking to them? All the time? Nah…
    Although I admittedly do it with my wife whenever it’s been a while (if you know what I’m talking about…)
    Now I gotta go check these OTHER sites! Interesting…

    The problem you have with Rubin is a great example of why male preoccupation with sex appeal can be harmful to women in the workplace. For mental health reasons they *have* to tune out unattractive women and their accomplishments and contributions are more likely to be overlooked. If you keep it up you’ll find that men who aren’t hot become invisible to you too.

    Although I am the only female in an office of 7 men I have never “undressed” any of them. But I’m with Joanne on this one. “When I am forced (ahem)to view a rather obvious “package”; prone to ponder. Sometimes I get lost in speculation, something further……… am I staring??” *cough*ahem* sorry. I just time traveled back about 10 years, but I’m back now. *sigh*

    First of all,”Ever since I read Neil’s post I’ve been disrobing every single man I see. Mentally. Not in real life because that would be, hmmm, inappropriate.” HAHA!
    Anyway, thank you, thank you so much for putting the idea of reversing my mind set and thinking like a man aka mentally (MENTALLY!) undressing every man I see. I know that I will be unable to resist (I’m fighting it right now) and considering most of the men I interact with are my professors, I’m REALLY GREATFUL for the akwardness this will create.

    Is it so wrong that maybe I DO want a date with Black Hockey Jesus?

    I do this, but not with every woman I see or talk to. I don’t believe anyone doesn’t. How can you help it?

  11. Momo Fali

    Taking into account the people I normally see on a daily basis, I would have to say no, I don’t think of them naked. And, if I do because of this post I will have to hunt you down. Really.

  12. phhhst

    I’m with the “not before this post” population.
    I think I did this when I was in high school. And maybe my twenties. When the people around me were at their naked peak. Nowadays, I think the clothes helps most of us.

  13. Black Hockey Jesus

    Thinking about them naked is half-assing it. I think about fucking them.
    But don’t get me wrong. Sexually objectifying women is only one perspective among many.
    I also objectify their personalities.

  14. goodfather

    Hmm. Do you want honesty, or HONESTY honesty? I’ll go for the latter.
    I think some guys are different. Or maybe I’m different. I don’t go for boobies, for example, I’m definitely a ‘downstairs’ guy. And, I’ve always seemed to have been without the ‘guy’ urge to have sex with a woman based on convenient proximity.
    BHJ has a restraining order against me. 😀

  15. Kristan Hoffman

    Well, okay, thanks to YOU I’ll be doing it for the better part of the day. Luckily this is the breakdown of the men I will see today:
    – my dog, who is always naked
    – my boyfriend, who I sleep with
    and (this is the only potential for awkward)
    – my friend’s husband
    NORMALLY, I don’t visualize guys naked. Only on the rare occasion, and strangely, usually with men I don’t particularly like. It’s as if my brain is trying to torture me! 🙁

    Gotta tell ya, I don’t think I have ever disrobed a man mentally, but in my prime I used to do it physically quite often, back in the 80’s when lots of us were doin’ it. A scary time in my life…. one guy turned out to be a horse and another a pony if you get my drift. Both experiences left me flabbergasted to this day. Um, maybe those experiences are why I now choose to leave mens’ clothing on unless I’m married to them.

  17. Lori

    So is BHJ for real or is that an attention grabber? I have been known to … daydream a bit here and there. But there are some people that never cross my mind in that way. Thank God.

  18. Helena

    I would not like a date with BHJ, thank you very much! What’s wrong with holding hands and sharing feelings??? 🙂

  19. Buckethead

    Oh, my gosh, please don’t put ideas in my head, this could be a verrrry bad thing.

  20. Midlife Mama

    BHJ is a male chauvinist oinker. Nuff said.
    Must be a guy thing, though, because I never imagine someone nekkid. Unless you said to me, “do you ever imagine someone nekkid?” And then I might look at the next guy I see, and imagine them nekkid. But then after that I’d just forget about doing it.
    Doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy me some fine man scenery, though. It just doesn’t occur to me to imagine ’em nekkid. Sometimes I see a good package and wonder what it looks like. But really? That’s about it.
    Is there something wrong with me?!? LOL

  21. Amy

    I always picture people naked. If there are two of them together, I picture them having sex. Regardless of gender.
    I don’t even know when I started doing it.
    It amuses me to picture people who are perfectly put together all sweaty and mussed.
    But it doesn’t mean I want to have sex with them. It also doesn’t mean I tell anyone about my thoughts. Unless it is particularly funny.
