Have you ever shown up for work and thought ‘man, this place could use way more cleavage… and do skirts really need to be longer than four inches’? Or why aren’t there more naughty nurses when I go to get my annual flu shot? And that speeding ticket would be a lot easier to stomach if the arresting office was wearing a tiny, thighs bustier and and six inch high heels.
Some have (very legitimately) argued that the sexification of Halloween is mildly misogynistic (not many men in sexy costumes) and has had a not-so-great influence on young girls (who are very unethically being marketed to, with costumes that are completely inappropriate). But this aside, its kind of fun.
Halloween has become an opportunity for women all over North America to bring out their naughty side. And ‘the holiday made me do it’. We were at an adult party on Friday night with a bunch of pretty conservative friends. All parents, many for the neighbourhood. Most we would never dream of being in a sexy situation with. Yet…. our speech pathologist neighbour was a sexy wonder woman; our stay-at-home mom friend was a very hot genie-in-a-bottle. And who knew one of our daughter’s old kindergarten teachers could make such an alluring dominatrix.
Cheers to Halloween.
