So What's Up With the Sexy Secretaries?
In the ongoing, but often-dropped, redesign of this site, I ran a search on Google Images. I was trying to find some sort of secretary graphic. Instead, I found page after page of exposed bras and pretty young ladies draping themselves across Dictaphones and typewriters.
Thanks, Google! I'm glad to know that my job is such a turn-on for you. The pay isn't great, so it's good to be compensated in hotness.
Last night, I cornered Tim into discussing occupational fetishes. Here's what we came up with: Men have the hots for secretaries because we're conveniently located (the desk right outside your office!). Librarians and teachers are hot because they're dominant, and either one might suddenly take off her glasses and shake out her hair to a thumping bass beat. Nurses are sexy because they're in a service profession and they see you naked.
The hot guy professions seem to be centered around uniforms: cop, fireman, military, etc. Is the "man in uniform" thing simply because there are so many guys out there who can't dress themselves? And I don't know any woman who is turned on by plumbers or pizza boys, so why do male strippers dress up as plumbers and pizza boys? And what's up with the milkman thing? I don't think anyone's seen a real milkman in decades.
Creative professions are hot to both sexes: musicians (guilty as charged), artists, writers, actors and actresses.
What occupations do you think are hot? Do you work in a sexy profession? If so, did you plan it that way?
PS - the image is of "Secretary Barbie." I'm envious of her full-length bangs and her ability to wear yellow without looking like a corpse.
