My previous post about good versus evil got me thinking about why we like bad boys. The dark character in that video was the one that always appealed to me more.
Boys with an edge are so sexy for some reason. Tattoos used to be the domain of bad boys but now that just about every second queen has one it’s lost its effect a bit. Is that why tattoos are getting bigger? Tyler Durden, Brad Pitt’s character in Fight Club, to me represents the idea perfectly, that every one of us has a bad boy inside, it’s just a matter of how far down they are buried. Falcon porn studio has made decades of films and millions of dollars out of wholesome boys next door getting down and dirty and living our fantasies out for us when we might be scared to ourselves.
Do nice guys really finish last? I’ve met loads of really sweet guys, but if there isn’t any kind of edge to them, no matter how small, I lose interest. For me, the trick is finding a nice guy who’s got an edge that he’s willing to show me, without that edge cutting me.
