Pin-up Girls

3 Oct

The glimpse of a girl
Glamorous
Sensual
Risqué
On the cover of a men’s magazine

From that moment
My interest stirred
For the Pin-up Girl
Forbidden territory
For a girl like me

If I spied a magazine
Under the arm of a passerby
Or in a newsagent
I would feel a sudden rush
Anticipation

I’d sneak a look
Flick through the pages
Lingering, admiring these women
Something igniting inside me
Changing

One day I found one by accident
I picked it up, kept it
In my room that night
I finally looked at my prize
My heart pounding

Such beauty
I found between the pages
Feminine glory
Dripping with glamour
A feast for the eyes

I began to dream of these women
Their clothes
Their flowing hair
Their sensuous lips
The curves of their bodies

I felt a longing, a desire
I wanted to kiss those lips
And caress those curves
I had an epiphany
Forbidden fruit
Of which I wanted to be a lover

Empowered Femininity

Empowered femininity

I think retro style pin-up girls (neo pin-ups) and burlesque (neo-burlesque) dancers embody this sort of sex appeal.

Heart, soul, beauty, personality, elegance, confidence, strong sense of female sexuality, femininity etc.

Pin-up girls (especially those by Vargas and Gil Elvgren) had a huge influence on me. In the Pin-up girl there is an awesome combination of sex appeal, femininity, elegance and self awareness.

Femme Fatales from film noir movies and detective novels as well embodied this with their strong sense of female sexuality, glamour, toughness and an element of “deadliness,” hence the name fatale.

Femme Scientist Pin-up Girl

Lesbian femme scientist pin-up girl from the I Heart Brooklyn Girls Calendar 2009. Awesome! Retro styled, femme woman presenting the sexy side of science. A bit of fun, not too serious. Could this be an image to use for getting lesbian women interested in science?
