I love that song . Not as thrilled about the video as it still seems somewhat risqué to me; but I guess burlesque was supposed to be, right? And THAT? Is TAME by today’s standards for tantalization. Where the clothing & gestures in that video would have been enough to make most ladies blush 40 or 50 years ago; today? They do more than that in cheerleading; wearing just about as much in some cases. :p Nowadays? I wonder how many men would actually even bat an eyebrow at it; or if the ‘pink palace’ that is the Men’s club overshadowed this long ago.
Which leads me to Reese Witherspoon.
I know, I know, seems like a rather random connection; but really, it’s not. Last night (I think it’s still last night, anyway) Reese Witherspoon won the MTv Generation Award & talked about how you essentially? It’s ok to be a good girl… No. More than that, really. It’s GOOD to be a Good Girl… cool, even. You know what I have to say to that?? AMEN; and it’s past time to spread it beyond the walls of Hollywood.

Right on, Reese. Bringing this to a relationship/dating level? I think that “I Am A Good Girl” mantra needs to make a comeback there, too. It’s been within MY ‘dating lifetime’ that it seems like we’ve gone to a ‘no holds barred’ mentality when it comes to sex, manners, (1) and dating. Fifteen years ago, when I started dating in high school, it was still very much socially unacceptable to discuss your ‘sex life’ (2) in public. It was sensational news just to report what celebrity was dating whom- sexy photos? Still Taboo. Today? We can read in practically “real-time” who’s having sex with who (3), what Blake Lively (4) is “sexting” and who’s ‘tweeting’ their bulging underpants now.
(1) read= lack thereof
(2) if you had one, which I did NOT but that was not the point
