I love animal prints! Like with any article of clothing it is how you wear it! And yes, modesty can be very sexy! There is NOTHING wrong with being sexy, radiant, confident or beaming! Feel good about yourself and be true to who you are! That is always an attractive quality!
I've noticed the word "sexy" a few times in a few posts over the time I've been here. Always mentioned in some sort of "catholic" context.
Frankly, I find it unsettling and we need to find a better word to describe modesty. Because sexy and modesty go together like chocolate cake and necrotising facilitis.
Oxford English Dictonary defines sexy as:
1. sexually attractive or exciting: sexy French underwear.
* sexually aroused. neither of them was feeling sexy.
2. very exciting of appealing: business magzines might not seem like the sexiest career choice.
And from the OE Theraursaurus.
seductive, desirable, alluring, inviting, sensual, sultry, slinky, provocative, tempting, tantalising, nuile, lush, flirtatious,
informal: bedable, come-to-bed, bootylicious, foxy:
And then there's this gem, Aussie vulgar slang (removed).
In the context of "sexy" it is clear that current trends lend themselves to a lustful application. As Catholics, we cannot in any seriousness use the word "sexy" in regards to chaste behaviour or dress. I'd even go so far as to safely say such an attempt by Catholics to "borrow" the word sexy is commiting the sin of scandal.
