When the beautiful and always charming Delle asked me to blog about sexy heroes, you better believe that I jumped all over the opportunity. After all, if it weren't for the sexy hero, I would be out of job. I would have no story. No motivation. No reason to live whatsoever. Yes, I was born for theater.
So what defines a sexy hero in my eyes? Truth be told, it is like asking me what chocolate I like best. White, dark or milk (although after a chocolate tasting I went to, which Delle was there for as well, there's much, much more than just that...) And heck, I'll be honest, I like it ALLLLL.
The reality is, however, that everyone's definition of a sexy hero is different. What is sexy to one person isn't necessarily to another. Sadly. Which can bring about quite the dilemma when a gal is actually trying to WRITE about the sexy hero. A hero whom everyone has to read and fall in love with. AND find sexy. Sometimes it seems downright impossible to create such a man. I would sooner find him walking down the street. Heh. But I try.
So here is a simplified list I use when creating a sexy hero:
Stupid. UNcheck. (Got you. Didn't I?)
Passionate in his beliefs. Check.
Passionate about the heroine. Double check.
Compassionate. Check. (Without the sobs, that is)
Honest. Check. (Though not too honest lest you never wear that dress)
Good looking. Check. (At least in the eyes of the beholder)
Physically fit. Check. (Because when he's fit, he has muscles. Yay!)
Hair that stays on his head and chest but never the back. CHECK!!!!!!
Tall. Yes, please. (Though not TOO tall...)
Well endowed. *TRIPLE* check. (I'm superficial)
Nice, tight rear. Check. (After all, one must complement the front)
Horny and kinky. (Uh...you decide whether this is good or bad)
Truth be told, I could go on and on. But in the end, I think that the sexy hero simply cannot be limited in his sexiness. Or something like that...
So. What is your definition of a sexy hero? And remember, it's quite all right to be superficial.
