When it comes to the definition of sexy, it isn’t a black and white argument. What one person may consider ugly, another person may see it as stunning. As the old saying goes, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and the definition of sexy certainly changes depending which border you have crossed. What these differences lead to is a beautiful variety of sexiness that can appeal to many people. Plus, if any of these women cross cultures, then a new practice and tradition is introduced thanks to the open definition of sexy. Especially in North America, where it has become a melting pot of different cultural practices, the definition of sexy has changed over the last several decades. This is also thanks to the Internet and social media for connecting us all together and leading us to discuss what is beautiful.
There has been a lot of controversy when it comes to what is sexy and what is not. Recently, it has been exposed that women will go to great lengths to hurting themselves in order to fit into the definition of sexy. This has caused a revolution in how the world perceives standards of beauty. For example, in ancient China, the practice of foot binding was an extreme in what women would do to make themselves more appealing to the opposite sex. This practice caused severe deformations in women’s feet, and alarmed people around the world. But when the 20th century rolled around, the practice was exposed and shunned. In Japan, having wild and crazy styles, also known as “Gyaru”, is a new fashion trend that is considered to be sexy among the Japanese people. This includes hair that is two different colors, crazy outfits, and insane makeup. Not only does it attract the attention of those around you, it also has the potential to attract mates. Sexy is a funny thing, especially in the country of Iran, where having battle scars from a nose job has more odd of landing you a date than putting on makeup.
From piercings to body modifications, this video contains a list of several countries around the world and how they define sexy according to their cultural history. It is fascinating to review these beliefs, as they have all contributed to our standards of beauty in one way or another. While the past has a lot of influence in our modern day beliefs, it is up to us to set the standard of sexy for the future. But it is up to us on how strict we make that standard.
Some of the definitions of what is sexy is dated, and is slowly becoming redefined in several counties. Hopefully, the changing of this definition around the world will contribute to the betterment of society and will encourage people to love the body and skin they are in no matter what size or color they are. In the future, it would be a sign of great progress when the definition of sexy is just natural beauty without the manipulation of surgery or other products.
