To me, there’s a sexy combination of factors that make Russian men – or at least the ideal of the Russian man – irresistible.
X FACTOR 1:That accent.
Oh, sure – it’s easy to be intrigued by voices from Eastern Europe in general, but the Russians nail it. Just imagine his warm lips touching your ear, whispering words of love to you in Russian…oh, but I’m getting carried away again!
X FACTOR 2:They have a great intellectual history and love of arguing over politics and philosophy. They are proud of their history, their authors and social activists.
Weren’t expecting that one, were you? Or perhaps you were! The Russians have a tradition of being great thinkers and talkers. Okay, sometimes it’s lubricated by a good helping of vodka, but still…
X FACTOR 3:They are well known for wrestling and other ‘manly’ sports. They are often tall, and well built. They are old-fashioned, protective and chivalrous when it comes to their women. (Yes, I realize I’ve listed more than one point here. It’s hard not to gush.)
X FACTOR 4:Their special-forces (Spetsnaz) guys are the toughest soldiers on earth…or so they say. Who am I to disagree?
Are you seeing a pattern here? Oh yes – the hot Muscovite, Ivan!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, JB, and sharing the secret to this age old attraction we hold! No, I'm not imagining Liam McIntyre whispering Russian sweet-nothings in my ear. Pleeeeease. As if! *fans self*
