5 Things That Turn Me On:

Sexiest Song Two come to mind:When Doves Cry” by Prince, which made me think and makes me still think of my first big love, because it described a relationship that was fractured but sexually explosive. And, “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak, which made me think and makes me still think of my second big love. I didn’t want to love him; the timing was all wrong and he was wrong for me. An artist, intense, but remote and elusive. But, love him I did.

Sexiest City: Paris.  Yes, I know many say it, but I’ve been there a number of times and know it’s not a cliché. Paris doesn’t try hard to be sexy, it just is. To start, you are surrounded by incredible history, architecture and art, with the Seine and its beautiful bridges and river walks. It’s also a state of mind. Parisians live and let live. And, how, they live! Despite being in a large city, you see life being relished in every way.

Hottest Book: Hard to single out any in particular, but one of them for me is Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd. I first read it decades ago and reread it last about five years ago.

Personality Traits: Having a slightly warped, but good sense of humor. Being an adult while still having a good sense of fun. Being sophisticated, intelligent, and well-read but unpretentious. Having eclectic interests. Communication; not being sulky and silent when dealing with problems.

Daily Acts of Love: Letting me wake up slowly. Remembering and caring about things that are important to me.  Recognizing that the importance of my family and friends will not take away from our relationship.

(And here’s one more…as a bonus!)
Product or Aid: I Love Massage oil, with a pleasing scent, of course.
