Long time readers will know that I am a huge fan of Blondie, and specifically Deborah Harry. In my youth she was the sexiest thing around as far as I’m concerned and that is quite a feat because I don’t normally like blondes.
The thing about Debbie/Deborah is that she has attitude and she is probably one of the reason that I still, in later life prefer women with attitude, personality, charisma and intelligence. She had a sense of irony that is lacking from so many people (male and female). I don’t do simpering, submissive, subservient, compliant women … I simply can’t come to terms with relationships with females who are unable to look me in the eye and tell me what they think.
In a sexual sense that doesn’t include submissive women because my experience of submissives in BDSM relationships has been of people who know what they want. If they want to serve then that is a choice they make and I respect that.
But back to Blondie as one of the formative influences in my life Deborah Harry cannot be underestimated as I realised when I saw this picture of her and despite the “interesting” facial expression that we in Yorkshire would call a “gurn” I was still erm, stirred by.
