Ginger in the sack - Ladies: say yes to the lingerie

Ladies, it’s that time of year. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. The time of year that red, velvet teddies with faux-fur trim around the breasts start showing up in La Senza displays. Mannequins in smutty elf costumes with candy-cane striped thigh-highs and Christmas coloured corsets beckon naughty window shoppers.
In the past, I’ve thought of kitschy lingerie (like sexy Mrs. Santa suits) as cheesy and unsexy. I’ve thought “what’s the point? It all comes off anyways.”I was wrong. Here’s why.
Even men who are in sexually satisfying relationships, who have frequent (and frequenly wild) sex watch pornography. They watch in on the internet, they watch in on DVD, they look at it in magazines like FHM, Hustler and Playboy–and honey, if you think that’s untrue, you’re lying to yourself.
So why do men love to rub one out to porn or pictures of Adriana Lima in negligee? Because, to put it bluntly, they want a girl who looks like she wants to fuck.
And nothing says “I want to fuck” more than going to the effort to dress up in lace and satin and thigh-highs. As my boyfriend affectionately calls it: “girl’s got Dick Eyes.”Yes, “Dick Eyes” are a good thing.
And don’t think I’m being sexist here, lingerie can equally give a woman “Clit Eyes,” if Clit Eyes are the kind of eyes you’re looking for.
The girls in Hustler get it, Madonna gets it, Xtina gets it. Women in New York who rarely take their three-inch plus heels off get it. You’ve got to put the effort in–to look smokin’, that is– to get what you want out of it.
In my humble opinion, you can forget the cutesy Santa’s Little Helper costume and go straight for the black lace corset with garters–crotchless. It’s classic and sexy at the same time. Who’s been a naughty, naughty girl this year?
