Sexless appeal

I noticed my legs were a bit grizzly yesterday before hopping into the shower. So I thought to myself, well maybe I should shave. But it's January and we have about a foot of freshly fallen snow I need to shovel and then I thought of the legs, really, why bother? And don't give me the whole: "You should try to stay sexy for your husband" line. Let me just say, I am the unsexiest woman alive. Really, I am.

My beauty regimen consists of clipping my fingernails, cleaning out my ears with a Qtip, and washing my face. And that last one only of recently at my husband's suggestion. I don't blow dry my hair all the way. The only makeup I wear is mascara and eyeliner. I have never had a manicure or pedicure. I don't wear dresses or skirts. I don't have any underwear that are mesh or have those bungee cord contraptions that connect to thigh high pantyhose. I wear socks to bed.

Saying all this, I don't know why my husband has sex with me. But I've been like this as long as he's known me, so I haven't just gotten lazier. I've been the same amount of lazy the whole time. I've never been super girly with any of that stuff. I used to wish I was a boy (not in the considering-gender-transformation serious way, just in the tomboy way). So maybe that's the reason I have never tried to be a girl. Is it possible to have sex appeal without being sexy? Well, guys have slept with me. I must have some sort of appeal. Maybe it's my personality. Oh yeah, I'm sure that's it.

I've often thought that I'm the least sexiest person on the planet too but still, I haven't gotten kicked out of bed yet. lol You and I must be doing something right, even if it's hidden from us!
