What is cool, what is sexy?

8 March 2006
OK this thread has much potential to go wrong, but I will post it anyway. What do you find sexy, that others don't notice? I'm not talking about the common items...

I'll give you one. I find gaps sexy sometimes. Like... the distance between the wheel, and the rotors. The more, the sexier. Look:

Big gap, sexy:


No distance, not sexy:


It's the opposite of fender gap.

I can name more... when I put my arms around a girl's waist, and my fingers in her pocket, as she walks her hip bone moves out and forward then in and backwards... almost does a figure 8. My hip bone doesn't do that.
That's pretty sexy...

When I go to the car wash, the water jet hitting the NSX has a distinctively different sound as it hits aluminum versus steel. It's kind of cool and NSXee.

If a fit girl is standing there talking to you wearing a sweater or something that is somewhat loose but just short... there is this gap between the bottom edge of her sweater, and her stomach. Somtimes like 4 inches depending on her shape... Sometimes that forces me to say "I'm sorry, I didn't hear a thing you said in the past 5 minutes". I can't stop looking at it...

Has anyone noticed these things? or am I just... different. LOL

Can you name one thing that is very cool or very sexy most don't see?
Dave you have way too much free time!! :tongue::biggrin:

Honestly, my brain is cooked. I am putting in 14-15 hour days. I am really busy at work then I have all this side shit going on like my stereo project and the advan GB. As if I didnt have enough going on I decided I can make a cat condo for way less than the $200 the pet store wanted. So $300 and 22 hours of work later, I have one that is almost as good.

anyway... Look, a gap!! :biggrin: :biggrin:

Yes we all notice these things. But you are different, that's for sure.:tongue:
I'm going to expose my inner geek, but there's actually a mathematical explanation for why humans find certain things visually appealing/sexy. It has to do with the fibonacci sequence and golden ratio, as explained by the links and videos below. The fibonacci curve is used by many designers to appeal to our senses, including in automobiles, which is why curvy cars like the NSX seem timeless to us.

Rob - that is too funny cause I'm in the UK right now attending the games and have been riding the underground all day. Had to log in and respond. Just witnessed a WR in men's track. :biggrin:

EDIT - and to keep it on topic this is a good thread turbo and I actually agree with you on all counts. Except that fingers are better off in back pockets. ;)

I dont know. While fingers in the back pocket are nice, it is not that unique. If you slightly cup your hands around the hipbone and put your fingers in the front pocket, the right girl makes your hand dance. You can't get this with every girl. It requires a certain amount of hips, the certain level of fitness, and a certain walk usually generated by certain shoes. When it's there I'm pretty vocal about it. They don't seem to mind at all. Usually because they've never heard it before. They say my attention to detail is a plus. LOL
