I was at a dinner party recently, chatting up a small group of men and women, all of us around the same age, when someone made a joke about aging. My ears perked and I blurted that I had turned The Big 5-O. They were stunned.

Here's an if-a-tree-falls-in-the-forest question: if society didn't tell older women they were invisible, would older women still feel invisible? I loathe the power that stale older-women-are-invisible narrative wields.

The premise here is we women know precisely what traits we like in men, even if men are the last ones to figure this out. Hint: there are actually ten things we love, not just seven.

Where I fall on someone else's sexiness meter is none of my business either. I love writing sex scenes. I have a naughty sense of humor. I love dressing sexy. I have four tattoos. At almost 38, I may be racy and over-the-top to some at times.

What is the first thing you notice in a man? I thought about the question for a moment. Did I notice eyes? Hair? Smile? Shoulders? None of these answers seemed to fit. When I was younger, I tended to like men who were tall, thin, and dark-haired. But now, at 52, I don't really have a 'type.'

Proof That 'Sexy' Doesn't Have An Expiration Date

I really don't understand why people collude with a misogynistic cultural message. I don't know why it's threatening to see an older woman rocking a revealing outfit, or to picture an older woman having sex. Perhaps younger women don't want more competition? Perhaps men find a hot woman with life experience intimidating?

There's a part of me that cannot even believe that we are having a conversation legitimizing the sex appeal of a particular age group. It's absurd.

I've been tweezing, shaving, moisturizing, defrizzing, flat-ironing, bikini-waxing, gym-joining (notice I said gym-joining, not gym-going?) exfoliating and manicuring since 8th grade, all while sleeping on a silk pillowcase to reduce wrinkles. I'm ready to grow a beard and just RELAX.
