Knights had armor, you have a suit. There is something irresistibly sexy about a well dressed man wearing a power suit and all the components, accessories and accoutrement that go with it.
Excellent material, made to measure, strong shoulders, back and chest. A seven fold tie that pops. Your pocket square, rakishly set in the breast pocket. When you raise your glass to drink a good single malt scotch your sleeve reveals french cuffs with cuff links that are charming, maybe even amusing. The collectors watch and shiny shoes communicate your attention to detail. Even your socks are snazzy. You carry an elegant business card case with beautifully printed heavy weight cards that declare your name and which war you fight. Your inner breast pocket holds an important pen for signing big deal contracts. Daddy even caries a briefcase or tablet gadget with with cool cover. Everything about you quietly roars strength and your command over your world. The message you send through your powerful presence is like an aphrodisiac. Your hair is boyish and shiny maybe even a little silver around the temples that says you are a man with experience. You are a man who knows what he is doing. I am relieved that I won’t have to babysit. You are not only well dressed but well groomed with nice manners. You even stand up when I enter the room or return to the table. You are rare and hard to resist.
Now that you are all suited up, try conquering me. You’ve already won, but I’ll play hard to get just to watch you work the suit. When I finally do give in, you stay dressed and I’ll get naked!
The contrast between suited control and naked submission is erotic. Even if you never thought about it in these terms, is it not truly the root sentiment behind why you donned those clothes in the first place?
