Sexy women over 30

Written by Daniel Otero

Women over thirty rock! 

The word sexy, especially for an older woman has negative connotations in China and the rest of the world for that matter.

Sexy is often confused with sex.  When it’s definitely not!

Sexy represents a person who’s sexually attractive.  And it’s not only that, it means in practical significance: cute, pretty, beautiful, gorgeous or handsome (the last one referring to males).  Well dressed, sometimes and not always aware of fashion trends or it can be a metro-sexual as well.

A person who is easy, accessible to talk and can become the center of attention at any cocktail party.

Moving onto women, when it comes to females the world isn’t always fair.  I’ve always expressed this point.

But women when they hit their thirties are placed [in any society] as motherly or as another passé female.  Past her prime!  I completely disagree.  After thirty the best is yet to come!

However, in contemporary times not all women are married or they necessarily have children.  Women become [like men] better with age, tasty, as a good wine!  At least, I think so…

Men often swarm to young women in their twenties, and it is okay.  I usually swarm to a confident-talkative [bubbly] woman in her thirties or forties.  This has to be somebody who can get my attention with lovely conversation and still be sexy, while stimulating my mind and intellect.  Just like “eye candy” but for the soul!

There are women incredibly sexy over thirty, forty and well into their sixties.  In China it’s easy to mention actresses like Tamia Liu or Gao Yuan Yuan (scandals aside), with their smiles simply rock it!  Other actresses are lady Zhang [Ziyi], Gong Li, Brigitte Lin, Nora Miao and Liu Xiaoqing.

Women should learn to feel better about themselves and their bodies.  This is their best time.

Outside of China, women like Salma Hayek (Mexico) or Monica Bellucci (Italy) can still work it on the runway!

The women above these lines can still hold center stage at any “Red Carpet”.

Because after thirty, a woman is becoming the greatest flower in the garden!  Some might say, “Oh please, give me break!” and I truly believe this.

She’s better, more sophisticated and adventurous in every way.  Experienced in life and intimacy to conquer all the necessary attention!

Thirty is not a burden, but a peak, a new beginning to be admired by others.  Over thirty doesn’t make a woman lesser, uglier or old.  It doesn’t mean the end!  It’s just a new phase in her life to get what she wants with her charm and intelligence.

If age is just a number, then forty is the new twenty.  Then we could easily say the same about thirty, it’s the new fifteen!  Therefore, a flower in her youth!

One thing is important to note, there’s nothing wrong with being over thirty.  A woman can become anything she wants: even prettier, sexy and flirty for all to see.  Just dress your best and show your beautiful experience to the world with a little confidence!
