Only their brains.
I suspect that some people clearly fantasise about Nigella as a sex object more than as a cook. That's what she's there encouraging people to do. That's why she sucks her fingers, flutters her eyelids, cinches in her waist, accentuates her bust and gives come hither looks. It's not a cookery programme. It's a soft porn show. That's what I find sickening.
Oooh, I've come over all unnecessary, zizz! I need a rub down with a cold flannel.
Don't forget the sultry voice and the pouty lips and the soft lighting...
OFGS.......you live in the past...shall all women then never do these things, maybe women should be serious at all times and have escorts or maybe veils and nor revealing clothing.What i see young women wearing in the streets I might consider **** as I could lead to evil thoughts and even actions from others.
I don't consider that ****......but then you will accuse me of being a man who is some how depraved that i liked a sexy cook who is confident in herself( seemingly).Rubbish
Your welcome to an opinion but dont just rubbish anthers actions because of your dislikes.
I don't think Zizzyballoon is living in the past at all. The days have gone where most women aspire to being viewed as sex objects or where it's regarded as acceptable for men to openly salivate over them. I think Nigella is promoting an outdated image - and the response to it from some men is reminiscent of bawdy seaside postcards.
And what women wear in the street does not in itself make them responsible for evil thoughts and actions of others - I'd call that victim blaming.
Sex sells. Why would she not make the most of her natural assets? It's wasted on me but I'm not particularly bothered that she presents in a sexually suggestive manner.
Some people are like that. Room for all.
For some of us oldies she is eye candy
MMMM! I could get myself into a lot of trouble here so I will not
Hey. Each to their own.
I find her a bit of a cartoon character. A stereotype.
But she sells books! She's very popular. I don't have to watch her. Just that if I see her on a trailer I think the same as @ilovesooty and @zizzyballoon
But this kind of thing is still very popular! She's just not my cup of lapsang.
She is a very pleasant distraction. Long may she continue to be so
It's interesting that so many posters describe a female being viewed as eye-candy, and then some responses saying "harrumph, I'm not allowed to do anything"
The being allowed to do it was never mentioned! It is a matter of personal choice. Why view a description of a reaction as a telling off? Why so sensitive?
Some people need to see things for what they are. You look at somebody, you lust after them, it happens.
My theory is that if there is a harrumph response, it's indignation at being told they're not doing something very cerebral.
Which of course is also correct.
There are times for cerebral and there are 'other' times
I must say I find it slightly weird writing this but it has just occurred to me.
If she were a man I'd think she was a bit of a sleazebag. Which is a thoroughly unpleasant thing to be/say/think. I can't think of any women in the public eye quite like her.
I agree, GDW. The persona which is projected during the programmes is definitely suspect. There is an uneasy difference in the way "experts" of different genders are expected to behave. That's why I posted this earlier.
I abhor the term eye candy, as though someone's worth is the sum of how attractive they are to someone else.
Most normal women would take it as a compliment.
Definitely a Freudian slip.
