The power of love (really?)

One question is occurring in my mind right now: is it the power or the uniform that drives woman crazy? As a former top model turned singer-a-bit-too-intellectual-with-a-reputation-of-maneater has just hooked up with the French president Nicolas Sarkozy, we could definitely admit that power exercises a strong attraction on women. Just look at a simple city hall meeting with the mayor. Even if he’s not good-looking, you will find women that will wet their pants for him. But for the uniform, can’t we say that it also give an impression of power to the one who’s wearing it? Examples:


  • The doctor
  • McDreamy

If he’s not a gyno (well, even gyno attract women, judging by the multiple people ending on my blog), the doctor is a fantasy for a lot of women. Especially since TV shows like E.R. or Grey’s anatomy have come up with a bunch of sex symbols like Geooooorge Clooney and Patrick Dempsey. The doctor is also synonym of a certain social status. I still remember when I was in College how some girls would just wait outside the medicine faculty to get a future MD. So, the doctor carries an idea of power underneath his white blouse.


  • The soldier
  • Jake Gyllenhall
    Behind the soldier lays the ability of a man to defend his country, hence defend his woman. Isn’t that a real power?

  • the police officer
  • Bad lieutenant
    Well, as long as he doesn’t look like the chief Wiggum, it will do. Hum, not for me, though. The police officer has the power to stop criminals, but he also sees the downside and the evil of humanity, which leaves him bitter. This isn’t a good example.

  • The fireman

Again, he’s supposed to fight against fire, there’s something really impressive in this.

So, if you’re attracted to men in uniforms, maybe you’re after their power/authority too. At least, that’s my opinion. But a friend of mine doesn’t necessarily agree on this. “I admit I fantasize a lot on soldiers and firemen because they’re supposed to have a fit, hence hot body. That’s the only reason I see” she said. Well, she may be right, after all :mrgreen:

So, are you attracted by men/women in uniform?

    For men, I think the opposite is true. We are often attracted to women in uniforms of subserviance. Take for example: hot nurses and sexy French maids.

    A uniform is a definite turn on-but in some cases they may look better on than off, and I’m not sure if a fireman in full gear would fit in my bed.

  3. WIGSF, ha, the eternal issue of the submissive woman.

    Hi rrc, yes, it’s true, you can be disappointed when they let down the uniform. Haha, I don’t see either a fireman in full gear in my bed.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I’m not a uniform-oriented type, but I was married to a soldier for many years. The funny thing about the reality of these three examples is that they are most likely to put their occupation first and their mate/family second. I don’t understand the attraction just as I can’t tell you how bad being secondary feels.

    I am not attracted to uniforms of any kind. I think I am more attracted to the profession a man is in. Of the examples you gave the soldier and the cop turn me off the most. Having known women married to cops and doing some research I know they are the highest profession for spousal abusers. I am not into licensed to kill, too many power trips, not all, but most. I would be attracted to doctors as healers and guys in suits as thinkers, firemen as rescuers, (maybe)…I like to look at the construction worker types…they also build things!

  6. Cricket, it’s the reverse of the medal when you date this kind of guys. The doctor will be too preoccupied by his patients, the soldier will be barely there at home because he’s sent to missions, the cops and the firemen are also taken by their job. And yes, I know what it is to be left secondary feels, and it sucks.

    DDTD, the world of cops isn’t the world of princes charming. I’ve read too much stories involving cops, rape, abuse, prostitution, … to know how bad they can be. Personally, they’re not my fantasy at all. So, you’re a pacific person, aren’t you?

    My current BF is a fireman which was one of the things that attracted me to him. You know, putting his life on the line, rescuing the damsel in distress and, as we have been discussing, …the uniform. But the breakup of his 20+ year marriage had a lot to do with the fact that he was at the firehall more than he was at home.

    He has since cut down on working and I haven’t yet been in a situation where he had to choose between me and a fire, but I think I know what he would choose (and it would not be my passionate kisses). But I knew this going into it so hopefully I’ll be able to deal (yeah…right).

  8. I love men in uniform… well it depends on the uniform. Back when I was in college, I used to drool over the pre-med male students who wear wearing white. I also love men in military garb. They somehow give off that appearance of strength that just pulls you to them.

    I love how you used McDreamy as an example and I wish half the male doctors here are as good looking… but I have yet to find them. 😉

  9. rrc, I hope you won’t have to deal with such a situation too often.

    ApplesH, since Grey’s anatomy has been aired, I know a lot of women who wish they could find a doctor as good looking as dr. McDreamy. Yes, there are a rare breed 😉
