Why Star Trek is Hot #6: Captain Archer!

It’s day 6 of my 8 Days of Star Trek series and I have confession to make.  The Star Trek hottie that I want to recognize today is a character I don’t even know very well because I haven’t watched his show (apparently hardly anyone else has, either).  Oh I do plan to check out Star Trek Enterprise soon, but I must admit that I’ve only seen one or two episodes, and not even in their entirety. Not because I didn’t enjoy what I saw, but rather because I was actually a bit too busy during the time the series started to get hooked on yet another great show. But this fact does not stop me from thinking that Captain Jonathan **Archer ** is totally hot.


I mean, I only watched enough to see that he is a very cool, real and down-to-earth captain. Very human and imperfect but eager to learn and grow. But who am I kidding – the character Archer could be the biggest jerk in this sector of the galaxy and I’d probably still think he was hot so long as he was played by Scott Bakula. I first fell for Bakula in Quatum Leap and I think the impression he left on me in that series is permanent.  That, and various pictures of him like this circulating the net:


So yeah. Archer is hot. The End.

There’s still 2 more days of hotness to go so come back for more 8 Days of Star Trek!

Why Star Trek is Hot #5: The Enterprise!

It’s Day 5 of my 8 Days of Star Trek series, and today I stray away from admiring the various life forms of Star Trek. You see, today I am giving a tribute to one of the hottest things about Star Trek – the ship that makes everything possible. Only the bestest, sexiest space vehicle in the galaxy – the starship ** Enterprise **!


Okay, so maybe the Enterprise did get blown up a time or two, have a crash landing at least once, and maybe it’s even run into itself from another dimension while caught in a rift in the space-time continnuum or something confusing like that … but all issues aside, if I were going to travel across the universe, this would be my ride.

Not Voyager. Not the Battlestar Galatica.  Not The Millenium Falcon. Most certainly not the Apollo 11.

Only the Enterprise and all its various models seem to have the most luxurious of interiors, stylish private quarters that actually look clean and comfortable, a cool bar and a transporter room.  It would be the ultimate cruiseship, seriously. Not to mention the best warp engine and shielding device in the galaxy and a navigational system that actually prevents them from getting lost in space like other ships we know.  *side eye*

And how can I forget about the all-important Holodeck? So you keep making moves at Spock, Worf, Picard and Uhura but they keep turning you down? No problem! Just go to the Holodeck and set up the parameters of the program and voila, your fantasy has come true! It just doesn’t get any sexier than that!

Just the thought of being able to live onboard a beautiful vessel like that while exploring strange new worlds, and seeking out new life and new civilizations is making me tingle with a special kind of excitement right now.  **looks up and cries** When are you guys going to beam me up already?!

There’s more 8 Days of Star Trek hotness left, so come back soon!

Why Star Trek is Hot #4: Uhura!

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Great times, great food, great friends and family. Only thing missing was my chance to see the new Star Trek movie. But speaking of mothers and greatness and Star Trek; the mother of all sexy Star Trek characters with great legs gets the tribute for Day 4 of my 8 Days of Star Trek series. Of course I am talking about the gorgeous Nyota ** Uhura **!


Okay, so do I really need to even list the reasons why Uhura is hot? I’ll do it anyway since it’s so easy:

  1. Single-handedly prevented The Original Star Trek from being a complete optical nuisance, just by being on screen
  2. That gorgeous left leg
  3. That fabulous right leg
  4. Maintained the coolest hairstyles even in space (I can barely keep a fancy hairdo with just high humidity, let alone in zero gravity)
  5. Proves that a woman can be smart, serious AND sexy
  6. Can make even an inappropriately short skirt/dress look professional at work
  7. Wasn’t afraid to try a little Something New **winks**
  8. Has a sexy name and speaks Swahili
  9. Was always surrounded by men dripping with testosterone, yet maintained her classiness
  10. “See! There are black chicks in space!”

Nyota Uhura is now being played by Zoe Saldana in the new Star Trek movie. She also is very beautiful, but I’ll have to see her in action myself and determine whether or not she out-rocks Nichelle Nichols or is even on par. Zoe_Saldana_3

Either way, if you can’t see how hot Uhura is – the new or the old – I’m going to don you in a miscellaneous red shirt and  send you on the next Away mission … dun dun dun dunnnn!

We’re only halfway through 8 Days of Star Trek, so be sure to come back for more!

Why Star Trek is Hot #3: Picard!

Winner of the spot for Day 3 of my 8 Days of Star Trek series, where I post about why I find Star Trek so hot is none other than the honorable Captain Jean Luc ** Picard **!


Yeah, I like human guys too, you know! There’s just so much that I find impressive about Picard:

  1. I love a guy in the driver’s seat
  2. Knows what his prime directive is and sticks to it
  3. Picard is a man of respect, honor and, if he can help it – peace
  4. He’s accomplished
  5. Bald heads are sexy
  6. Has a terrific voice
  7. People do what he says
  8. He’s cool and calm when he needs to be, angry when he needs to be
  9. Wise with experience
  10. A great leader – arguably the best captain Starfleet has ever had

Captain Kirk may have been the more romantic one, but he was also kinda slutty. I’d take the more refined and subtly sexy Picard over Kirk any day to command my vessel.

Does Picard make it so for you like he does for me? Come back soon for the continuation of my 8 Days of Star Trek!


Why Star Trek is Hot #2: Worf!

Here’s Day 2 of my 8 Days of Star Trek series, where I post about why I find Star Trek so hot! I’lll continue today with the formidable but snuggleable ** Worf **.


Worf has this dangerous demeanor with a loyal and loveable interior. He’s the tough angry guy that a deviant geek like me would love to tame. And here’s why:

  1. Big, tall and dark
  2. Loyal and strong but still wounded and vulnerable
  3. Speak Klingon to me baby!  Qapla’!
  4. Dude looks like he’s built Ford Tough (which can come in handy for some wild, wild nights!)
  5. He’s a warrior
  6. Ooh those lips
  7. That growl! That roar!
  8. With a little bit of experimentation, the ridges on his nose and foreheard could make for some very interesting foreplay
  9. He’s a good father
  10. I’d feel very safe by his side

Hot stuff.  Even the tales about how dominative and dangerous the Klingon mating ritual is don’t deter me one bit.  I actually prefer a little bit of danger …

What do you think, is Worf worthy of wooing? Come back soon for the continuation of my 8 Days of Star Trek!


Why Star Trek is Hot #1: Spock!

Okay, so the new Star Trek movie just opened yesterday, but due to my parents being out of town on some amorous trip in Las Vegas together, my husband and I are without an evening baby-sitter. Thus I am forced to wait a WHOLE WEEK before I get to see the movie! But instead of throwing a tantrum about it while I wait, I’d like to dedicate each of the next 8 days to why Star Trek is so freakin’ sexy to me.

Firstly, all of the Star Trek series weren’t just about space exploration, they were about the exploration of people, emotions and relationships. The episodes all touched on things like altruism, racism and equality, sexism, diversity, passion and politics, and so much more. Every episode left you thinking or feeling in some way.

But even moreso than the great themes, it’s the great characters that were so hot I find myself compelled to write a tribute for my favorites.  I’lll start today with ** Mr. Spock **.


Ever since I was a little girl watching the original Star Trek on a 9-inch black and white television set with one bent antenna while my mom pressed my hair, I’ve been fascinated with Spock. He’s got all the characteristics a geek girl like me needs to fall in love with (besides flexible fingers):

  1. Tall and dark-haired
  2. Intelligent, talented and ambitious
  3. Extrasensory pecerption (What I would give to do a mind-meld with Spock! I bet my thoughts would make him blush)
  4. Calm and logical
  5. Can throw down when the situation calls for fists
  6. Secure, mature and masculine
  7. Inquisitive and somewhat “innocent” (oh the things I could teach Spock)
  8. Long ears that are perfect for grabbing when – *coughs* er hmm
  9. His hormones only rule him every once in a while, making him actually an interesting challenge
  10. Exotic (You’re from where? The planet Vulcan, you say?  Ah yes, I’ve always wanted to visit some place new …)

What a man. **swoons** Spock may also be responsible for starting my elf-fetish … I mean, afterall he IS very much like a futuristic high-elf … although Orlando Bloom as Legolas from Lord of the Rings definitely helped perpuate it.

Let me know what you think about Spock, and come back for the continuation of my 8 Days of Star Trek!


Hot Stuff: The Host

Okay, so maybe I’m one of the few lovers of paranormal romance on the planet who has yet to either read or see Twilight.  I’ll get to it eventually – I have a reading list three miles long.


The Host

But I did feel compelled to read Stephenie Meyer’s seemingly less talked about novel, The Host.  I’m also a science fiction lover, and it had been a long time since I’ve actually read one, so I picked this one up hoping it would satisfy my hunger for a taste of alien possibilities.


And it did!

I loved this book. Stephenie Meyer’s knack is invoking emotions.  There were parts in this book that made me angry, sad, nervous, ponderous and awed. Even though it felt far more literary than science fiction – there was only a teeny bit of action or science – the character development, tension and light but endearing romance made this book hard for me to put down.

If this is the kind of impact Meyer’s delivers consistently, I guess I’m going to have to bump Twilight up on my list! 

I was surprised by the kind of questions this book made me ponder. Who am I, exactly?  Am I my face, this body?  My personality?  Who I was and what I did in my past, or rather what I’ve learned and what I plan to be in the future? What exactly is the human soul, and where is it?

Although this book was pretty much rated PG (with the  exception of a violent scene or two that I personally could have done without but understood the artistic expression), the fact that it left me thinking long past The End is what makes it hot.  It turned my mind on..

HOT RATING: 4 out of 5 flames


Top 10 Women’s Fantasies – Part 3

At last!  Here’s #’s 3, 2 and 1  of the Top 10 Women’s Fantasies discussion, based on this article .  ( Click here if you want to see all three parts. )

3.  ** Two can chew **

QUOTE: Most men enjoy being spoiled by two women who fawn over them simultaneously. In the same instance, women also fantasize about having two men all over their bodies. Some wanted a more gentle erotic scene, while the rare few wanted porno-like sex.

This is definitely one of my biggest fantasies.   Some of the best things in life come in pairs.  Shoes, gloves, hands, lips, parents.  Too bad husbands don’t.  Maybe the garage would finally get cleaned out if they did.  ** rubs chin **

2. ** Strap me on, I’m going in **

QUOTE: By far, one of the most popular fantasies women have is being the man for one night… literally. They would like to act and dress up like a man, and I mean straight down to the penis. That’s right, I’m referring to a strap-on penis.  One woman actually had the opportunity to fulfill her fantasy and took full advantage of her boyfriend’s willingness. “It was absolutely incredible to be able to penetrate a man and feel the empowerment usually associated with being the aggressor.”

Every once in a while I try to imagine what it feels to be a man, especially when I’m working on a love scene that’s from the male’s perspective.  But I find it much more enticing being the dominant one from time to time while still being the lady.   


LIKELIHOOD OF MAKING IT HAPPEN:  I wouldn’t actively try to pursue this fantasy.  However if he was the one interested in trying out a little role reversal … 




1. ** Ooh, my virgin ears **

QUOTE: Although saying “rape fantasy” sounds somewhat unthinkable, that’s exactly what most women call it. They want to play the innocent, naïve, unknowing little girl who gets taken advantage of by the devious, predator-like man. Forcibly pushing her against the wall and “pinning my arms above my head with one hand while the other hand has made its way under my skirt” received nods of approval by all the women in the room. 

I totally understand why this fantasy is number 1.  It could quite possibly be the biggest fantasy of mine simply because it is the only one that can not be truly realized.  I won’t ever be naive and innocent again, and real-life rape is deplorable.  But as a fantasy?  Hot.  HOT!


LIKELIHOOD OF MAKING IT HAPPEN: Let me just say that naughty roleplaying can help keep the passion in a marriage alive and strong.  Trust me!  ** winks **

Top 10 Women’s Fantasies – Part 2

At long last, here’s the continuation of my thoughts on#’s 6 through 4 of the top 10 naughty fantasies of women (based on the article Top 10 Women’s Sexual Fantasies) .   Click here to see the first part if you missed it.  



6. ** Sexually ravaged **

QUOTE: Although most women agreed that they fantasize about having a master, their role in the scenario differed. Whereas some women said that they would surrender to their master’s demands, others opposed the idea and said that they would resist and disobey his commands.

“Having him instruct me on how to lick and suck his member or at what pace to ride him will make me orgasm faster than I can say Yes, Master.” On the other hand, […] “It depends. In some fantasies I obey, yet in others I fight him and refuse to do anything he says until he finally ties me to the bed and calms me with his rhythmic penetration.”

Whew, is it hot in here, or is it just me???

I have never, ever had such a naughty fantasy.  Except for every single day.


LIKELIHOOD OF MAKING IT HAPPEN:  Who says I didn’t already?


I got this image from http://christarp.aljaud.com/Images/stuff/FPhot/A_Kiss_by_KirstyTL.jpg

5. ** I taw, I taw a putty tat **

QUOTE: Virtually every woman wants or will share her body with another woman. Are you jealous because you get left out? Don’t be, most of these women want their man to watch them while they work… or play, as the case may be.

Virtually every woman does?  Really?  ** raises eyebrows at those stats **  


LIKELIHOOD OF MAKING IT HAPPEN:  *grins* I’m going to plead the fifth on this one.



I got this image from http://www.thelaf.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/stripperpole-doutzen-kroes-002.jpg

4.  ** Leave a good tip **

QUOTE: Keeping in mind that the women interviewed are professionals with commendable careers, some of them fantasized about being strippers, while others took things a step further and imagined being prostitutes. Obviously, the fantasy is romanticized beyond belief because the life of either is not so glamorous that women would opt to have it as a career choice.

 “[…] The gentleman would pick me up in his expensive car and I would ride him in the driver’s seat in some dingy back alley. He would pay me my fee and I’d be on my way.”

Okay, I’ll admit that I used to share this fantasy.  But the older I get the less this sounds like fun to me and more like a dead-end job.  So the fantasy has lost quite a bit of its sizzle.


LIKELIHOOD OF MAKING IT HAPPEN:  1/10 (Hey, in this economy anything’s possible … Just kidding!  Mostly.)






I’ll return soon with the last part of the discussion.  Ta-ta for now!

Hot Stuff: Fringe


The show Fringe (Tuesdays at 9/8c on Fox) makes me hot.

Like, burning, melting, quivering hot.

And it isn’t even a “sexy” show.  It is a sci-fi show.  Part X-files, part CSI, part 24.  But it is all hot.  It has unique dilemmas that get my creative juices flowing, complex and exciting psuedo-scientific concepts that fire up my synapses, a lot of action and secrets and espionage and two sexy main characters that are brainy beauties.

What’s the fastest way to get to this geek girl’s heart?  Through my mind.  If you can turn on my brain then my body is sure to follow.  It is why I like to read romances and erotica, it is why I love science fiction and fantasy, it is why I love crime mysteries.  And it is why I love this show.

HOT RATING: 4.5 out of 5 flames


NOTE: Apparently Fringe is on hiatus right now for 7 weeks.   **tries not to cry**    It will continue on Tuesday, April 7.
