Everyone knows that standing by dangerous things makes people look sexier. I don't know why this is - maybe it is something in the contrast of the exciting and dangerous and the soft and beautiful - but James Bond uses that old trick over and over. Shiny metal gun in one hand, sexy girl in the other.
I went to Puerto Rico by way of Miami a few weeks ago, and had the chance to encounter some dangerous wildlife while I was traveling. I saw an alligator, and remembered that being close to something that could kill you can make you look sexy, so I really tried to work that angle as much as possible.
Do you see how that snake that might strangle me at any second? So sexy!
It is important to remember that the trick only works if you look like you don't care that you are standing next to something dangerous. Crying isn't sexy.
We tried hard to risk our lives constantly during the vacation to keep looking as sexy as possible. This photo was taken right after we went diving with jellyfish and huge lobsters. That is why Derek's back looks so good to you right now.
Almost falling out of a palm tree to your death can be sexy.
And jumping on the beach in your speedo for an hour until your friend gets the perfect sunset shot of you?
That is dangerous for a whole lot of reasons. And therefore ... pretty sexy.
