I read yesterday that successful blogs are very narrow in their subject focus. It was reassuring to read this, as my blog is clearly and narrowly focused on one subject. Life, the universe and everything. So I am unquestionably following a tried and proven formula for success. Yes, I know it’s a bit Douglas Adams isn’t it?

Which brings me immediately to the subject of sex goddesses.

You will notice from the small collection I have gathered below, that personal favourites tend to be pre-1970, with one or two latter day exceptions. I was wondering what the common thread of attraction was for me among these goddesses. Dark hair seemingly, as well as a hidden smile and gothic exterior. The other quality that arose from my pondering was that these women were all characters to admire, but had the good sense to keep their personal identities out of daily scrutiny or controversy.

Unlike some of our modern day sex goddesses, who seem hell bent on creating a public persona of themselves, and not their characters. Who wants to admire shoplifting, adultery, adoption, cheating, drug abuse, foul language and alcoholism? It is quite possible that my little list of goddess characters had problems in their real lives, but somehow they didn’t need to make them public to increase their popularity.

Or maybe it is just that black and white photos are more sexy!

    Or it could be you're into mysterious, strong-willed women, which is a plus:)
