Over the past decade a certain topic has been questioned and exploited by society, companies, even government.  What is sexy?  Is it the eyeliner that make your eyes pop?  Is it that certain lace push up bra that costs $80?  No, it has to be that perfume you put on.  Maybe it’s the color or cut of your hair.  No, it must be the pricey designer label clothes.  With all the glitz and glamour developed over the decade, our society has forgotten the natural sexiness in brains, personality, and of course a good sense of humor.
            First thing to take into consideration is the evolution of attraction from early ages to the present.  It was documented that women with weight were highly desired in society.  Influences of this were wealth, lifestyle, and reputation.  Over the years, fashion has played a major role in the sexualization of women.  It wasn’t long before a skinny frame was the new ultimate desire in society, but it didn’t stop there.  Less clothes became acceptable.  More make-up become appropriate.  Suddenly the beautifully twisted side of sexuality reared it’s head.
            With posters of half naked swimsuit models hanging from 12-year-olds bedroom walls and rap slur invading the air waves, women sexuality has transformed into a possession instead of a valued treasure.  Desexualization has become a normal trait in society; people calling each other vulgar terms like bitch, slut, whore, gold digger, etc.  If a man is promiscuous he is respected for it by his peers, yet women are torn apart by slander.  The truly sad part about all of it is we’ve allowed this to happen.
            This is society now.  The beautiful side of it offers education, love, and adventure.  Yet the dark sting of society waits eagerly to tear into each other like crazed cannibals.  The real question is what will society do within the next decade?
