Are you 28? Good news! You’ve embraced your sex appeal and are at your sexual peak. 27? No problem, it’s all to come. 26? You can chill the hell you you’ve got years to mess up.
If, like me, you’re 29 - well what now? Is it all over? Have I peaked
In my case, 28 was a productive year. It was also a tricky year. I had a job, left a job and started a new job (hiya!)I also went from being engaged to being single to being back in a relationship. Now in my mind, there’s nothing less sexy than a break up. Ditto the strange, spiralling break-up weight that follows and definitely ditto the happy weight that follows getting (back) together with someone. Character-building, yes, sexually-defining, less so. But there were moments that equally I’d describe as golden. I got my hair to a desired length and yes, felt sexier. But other than that, it was highly variable.
But then define sexy? In my mind, sexiness is intrinsically linked with confidence which goes hand in hand with maturity. I felt as sexy and 27 as I did at 28, although there were moments that I felt sexier when I was 24, and getting together with my boyfriend. I must have been sexy to him at least, even if I wasn’t terribly confident?
According to this survey, however, women are most confident at 32 so maybe this is all wrong. We can only conclude then that the whole survey is arbitrary. It’s depends on your relationship/social/work/friend status. And people certainly peak at different ages. I for one peaked mentally at 11, I’m sure. And it’s all been downhill ever since. Still it’s comforting news for Pippa Middleton (28), bad news for Beyonce (30) and intriguing news for Lady Gaga for whom the best is yet to come. Apparently.
