What is sexy?

This is the carry over from a discussion that we are currently having on Google+.  What makes a person sexy?

The first thing you must determine is whether you're talking to a man or a woman.  Men invariably get hot and sexy intermingled.  They look at a hot chick and go she's Hot.  Or they look at a hot girl and say oh, she's sexy.

Women.... it's much more complicated.

For women, a man doesn't have to be HOT to be sexy.  And just because someone's HOT doesn't mean he's necessarily sexy.

Hugh Jackman.  I think this man is one of the hottest men on the planet.  The muscles.... yum.  The face... swoon.  But all of that wouldn't make him sexy.  What DOES make him sexy?  I love his grace when he sings and dances, I love his easy laugh, I love that smile, and I love that he's a devoted father.  There is nothing sexier than a man who adores his children.

Men I find sexy and yummy aren't the classic studs.  My examples...

Colin Firth.  Oh that guy is just yummy on a stick.  But not many people would look at him and say he's hot.  He's intelligent, he's cute, a funny personality... THAT's sexy.
Hugh Laurie
Oh...I love him.  He's cute, has a TERRIFIC sense of humor.  Is self-depricating... I just adore Hugh Laurie.
Ryan Reynolds.
Be still my thumping heart.  He's cute.  Not gorgeous, but cute as in boy next door.  he's got a killer body (see below), but his characters have heart.  There's a soul.  He's sexy.

If you ask men who is sexy, you can put a random woman's naked body up on the screen with no head...and he'll say that THAT is sexy.
