Sex sells to grumpy old men :)

I've been following this blog for some time. There is a lot of posting by Taru, and not enough by Alex, who appears to do an outstanding job in rehabing their new boat.

At any rate, Taru's post today is spot on, and funny as all get out with its honesty:

.......I've sometimes come across some grumpy middle age or retired mens blogs out there in the world wide web where these guys insist on me being "full of myself" whatever that means. Apparently as I'm posting images of myself "all the time". But let's keep it real boys, a photo of a half naked young woman offer much higher marketing value than what photos of flowers, Caribbean fruits and even sailboats does so you must understand the necessity of these from time to time. Let us agree on that business and pleasure can very well be combined, and most certainly while dressed in nothing but a bikini.

For the full post and blog, click the link.

Re: Sex sells to grumpy old men :)

Sex has to be the all time ultimate sales angle. I defy anyone not to notice any particular sexual trigger that floats their boat. (no pun intended)

I must of missed that, and I follow them regularly also. How long ago did they post it?

ZTC has more practical advise, especially for maintenance items, or if your really, really into physical exercise. Those two are machines!

They talked about it here: Too many waterfalls to keep track!

Maybe it's the same bikini police?

I enjoy Taru's blog. There seems to a certain classiness to it that goes beyond the sexual tones. I also use to read ZTC but stopped because so many of the posts seemed mundane and forced, like there really wasn't anything new to relate but they had to post something to keep hits coming to the site. Taru's doesn't post every day so when she does it's fresh and something a bit different.

Re: Sex sells to grumpy old men :)

Looks like I am neither grumpy nor old yet! Or else not 'man' enough ;-)

Came across that blog before and found it full of things not related to sailing. Have not visited ever again.

I'm with you on that one.
Take a gander at the latest Playboy (y'know the one you buy for the good stories). It features Marilyn Monroe. She was a beautiful woman, but, she was voluptuous....fat by supermodel standards.
If more women aspired to her proportions than to those of the skinny bloody things who grace fashion mags these days, the world would be a much healthier place.

Geez Doodles, that sort of reminds me of the following piece written a few years before the above classic. Enjoy. (HD) Beethoven "Sonata Pathétique"- 2nd mvt Adagio cantabile - YouTube

Re: Sex sells to grumpy old men :)

Well, you can't blame her for cashing in on her assets while they still have value in the market. IMO what's really pathetic are guys who let the head of their penis do the thinking instead of the one that sits on their necks. That scenario usually ends badly either in a bar at closing time or in a marriage situation.

Re: Sex sells to grumpy old men :)

Got to admit, Taru's blog is one of the best ones I've seen. I agree with Doodles, its a very classy blog. Sundowner blog is another one that is well done.

Looking at mine, I just sigh, but then I'm a techie, not an artist. I don't do artsie stuff. (well not very often) You want to see someone get filthy dirty doing a boat job then I'm your man. The blog will tell you in gory details all the ins and outs of whatever it is that I'm covering.
