It’s disturbing when you suddenly discover you’re inappropriately aroused at work. It’s even more disturbing when you discover the arousal is due to you being a big ol’ nasty pervert.
I’ve been trolling some of the stock photography sites looking for something to go along with a project I’m working on. The project requires a photo of a 20-30-something guy. So I type “hip young man” into the search engines and casually start browsing the results.
On about page two I noticed the tingling.
There were tons of pictures of men — shots cropped at their armpits and the tops of their thighs. Before my eyes were rows and rows of be-jeaned, be-boxered, and be-sixpacked men’s midsections, specifically their hips.
It took me entirely longer than I care to admit to figure out why in the hell all these hip pictures were showing up.
Duh. Apparently I’m not a very smart pervert.
But DAMN. Men’s hip area is some kind of sexxy.
