It’s not an article of clothing or a perfume or cologne. Those are items that augment “sexy”. Sexy is a strong link between our minds and our bodies. A connection with self that supercedes any material item. It’s the swagger in a walk, the smile on a face and the essence of health that truly embodies “sexy”.
