Hello ladies, let me throw this out there for you, especially considering that most men folk still seems baffled about what we’re getting our knickers/panties in a twist for. There are blindingly obvious “attractive” things about the male leads in FSOG and Crossfire. Both Christian and Gideon are supposedly hot beyond what’s humanly possible, rich as Bill Gates and demons in the sack so you may ask yourself, what’s not to like? But none of those things are unusual in literary/fictional character’s lives, in fact, they are the norm. So what then girls, is the thing that draws us so much? It’s been suggested to me that we’re drawn to their flawed nature, our motherly instincts wanting to nurture and to feel needed. I this the case for you?
Personally that’s not my thing, don’t get me wrong, I’m as nurturing as the next woman but I’ve never been attracted to someone because of their brokenness. I also think for most women (including me) his love for Ana/Eva is very alluring, the way he all but worships her and makes her feel beautiful certainly plays a role but having said that – for me at least – it’s more. His jealous possessiveness, bulldozing confidence that’s just on the the right side of aggressive and maybe most of all, the way he thinks about sex, not just as an act but how he makes a meal out of seduction, is pant worthy. He enjoys giving her pleasure, in fact you almost get the impression that he lives for it, being very deliberate in what he chooses to do. Dare I say the very epitome of male that feminism has shunned….
What is the thing about these characters that had your toes curling?
