Poldark: A Minxy View


Evening Minxes!

Tonight having just watched Poldark, then watched Twitter nearly exploded with the Q&A session #AskPoldark, I consider it my Minxish duty to explore this sexy white shirt wearing (EEEEP!) phenomenon.

So why does Poldark kick so much ass and why is he such a beefcake.

For starters, you know I love ’em dark and handsome, and Aidan Turner fits the bill in SO many ways. Even his HAIR in Poldark has its own twitter account. @PoldarksHair.

Secondly, he’s a complete beefcake – fuzz and muscles and all. Even as a younger minx when TakeThat and East17 were all the range, I was never into baby-peach-faced cute looking young lads. All this plucking, waxing, gelling nonsense can do one. I like men that shave and have proper chest hair and LOOK like men.

The TV show Men Behaving Badly, was in part a backlash against the beginnings of overly PC / overly sensitive culture, with men being (slightly exaggerated) men. Poldark is in the same vein. He’s a little bit moody and broody and is unapologetic for it. He makes mistakes, gets hurt, gets angry, but is generally just doing his best. He’s not perfect, but he’s not a game playing weasel, or worse, a snivelly wimp wet loser who can’t make his mind up or is too scared / much of a pussy to try.

Where most blokes of his time would have been screwing the maid and anything else within 5 miles in a skirt, he actually risked everything and married Demelza (after sleeping with her of course).

This leads onto the biggest turn on of all. He doesn’t give a flying fuck about social conventions and is willing to risk it all to be happy and to do right by his workers, even at the risk of being a social outcast and potentially ruining his estate.

Being courageous, being ballsy….that’s one of the sexiest qualities in a man.

Prince Charming can do one. This Minx is holding out for an anti-hero like Poldark.

About littlewelshminx

I'm a Welsh girl in my 30s, living and working in south Wales. I like reading, writing, watching films (especially things that make me laugh) hanging out with friends, going to bars to drink and dance playing guitar (badly) listening to lots of different types of music (opera to dance to bluegrass to rock) going to the theatre, and I've recently started swimming. I have 2 degrees, and have had lots and lots of different jobs, including working as a barmaid, waitress, KP, shop assistant, admin assistant, events, sales, PR, marketing....writing suits me best. I will be writing about sex from as many angles as possible - from personal experience, through academia, history, geography, culture, myth, legend, fact and fiction. What is sexy? What turns us on? What do we really think and feel about sex? If you like what you read, please follow me, and pass it on :)
