I believe that the man was formed, but the woman was fashioned.
For those of you who know your Bible, you will recognize those terms. Whether you believe in it or not is irrelevant. Those two words are subtle, yet very different.
Formed and Fashioned.
The first means to build. To make. In the utilitarian sense. The latter implies artistic touch. That care was taken in the visual aspects. I deeply believe this was done so by design.
Why? I cannot say for certain but I believe it was not an accident.
The way I see it, the female body warrants the appreciation only rivaled by snobby art aficionados. Even women recognize the attractiveness in each other when they have no lesbian tendencies in their bones.
Men? There is no equivalent.
Straight men have no attraction to other men even when we know they are clearly appealing to other women. It is just a different dynamic than what women have.
The face of a woman is delicate but powerful. The hair and shape of a woman’s face will wipe out the strongest of men, over and over. The shape of the curves of her body. The hourglass figure with the shapes jutting out and in and out and in and down. Wipes me out no matter how many times I see it.
Naked, this artwork is a true masterpiece. It truly is a sight to be admired.
Women, in all their variations, are just fucking beautiful. No reason to complicate it.
It’s that simple.
