A month ago, I had a conversation with a friend of mine about jewelry, and how she wasn’t into it that much. “I don’t wear any jewelry, I don’t like it. The only ones I’ve got are inherited from my grandma, and these are really precious to my eyes, even if I’m sure it’s not worth that much” she said.
I must admit I don’t give a damn about jewelry either, except maybe for earrings (I’m a big collector), but I look for originality, not for the gold in it. In psychoanalysis, there’s a link between jewelry and the sexual organs. In fact, it’s a metaphor for it. So, would it mean we’re not outspoken about our sexuality, or sexually ambivalent? Well, let’s see. Look at the ones who are into the bling bling.
First, there are the rappers.
Many of them try to look like a pimp. Some of them have tried to shoot a porn (like Snoop), others have sex tapes running around, … Okay, they are a good example of the jewelry/sexual organs theory.
Then, there’s the politicians. Nicolas Sarkozy has introduced a new style in presidency: the bling bling one. For those of you who don’t understand why, here are some explanations. First, he has a taste for expensive things, like watches ( he affectionates Rolex, the one he has costs more than 14.000 euros). Second, he’s into the trophy kind of women. Cecilia Albeniz-Ciganer (now Mrs. Attias) was a model when she was young, and Carla Bruni, her upgraded version.
Judging by how N.S. looks at the women in general (there’s one video on the internet that shows his wandering eyes on Bar Rafaeli’s cleavage), and his taste for expensive watches, the theory also applies.
And for women?
The female rappers do also affectionate bling bling, but they don’t have the pimp attitude that goes hand in hand with their male counterparts.
But Missy Elliott did sing a song about her not wanting no one-minute man. So the theory is again validated.
Then, there are the socialites with a pea instead of a brain, like Parasite Hilton, who’s probably the most bling bling of them all.
Very outspoken about her sexuality but also frigid in the intimacy.
Besides, when I worked as a banker, I had this female client who wore a lot of jewelry (and fur, eeeewwwww) and my colleagues told me she had four husbands and several lovers during her marriages and in-between, a real maneater.
But there are exceptions to that. Our office whore doesn’t wear any jewelry, and the biggest slut in my school either. However, although both are hot pants, they don’t show openly their sexuality. This would mean that it’s not because you’re outspoken about your sex life that you’re necessarily that horny (nor a good shot).
So, do you wear a lot of jewelry? And are you outspoken about your sex life?
