I never reblog things, it’s so Tumblr, but THIS is worthy of it.
Because I’m a redhead and I love it – having had the worst teasing by friends and family as a child – when people proclaim how much they love them. Cheers both to Dez, and Decibel Mag. Here’s a snippet of the piece…
For some men it’s unmistakable: the draw the to the color red.
Like a bull to the red cape of a matador, we men are transfixed, relentless in pursuit and the feeling is strong and pure.
I myself have been with a “natural” redhead for years and every day I see her, the same drop in blood pressure happens, the energy within me loses all control.
This is fact and has been scientifically proven that the color red enhances the viewers metabolism and increases heart rate and respiration , something I know all too well.
Redheads are surrounded by myth and mystery; they have, throughout history, often been associated with fiery tempers, witchcraft, moral degeneration and beastly sexual desire.
A few quotes that I love and appreciate are as follows:
“Once in life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead. ” — Lucille Ball
“Out of the ash, I rise with my red hair and eat men like air.” — Sylvia Plath
“Gentlemen may prefer blondes but it takes a real man to handle a redhead.” — Unknown
Bible thumpers may be interested to know that Adam’s first wife Lilith was always depicted with red hair and refused to lie underneath Adam during intercourse stating, “Why should I lie beneath you when we are both equal created from the same dust?” I love this quote; it sums a redhead woman up most magnificently as they are strong in will and control their desire as to only let it be shown when SHE wishes to engage it.
