Episode 357 - Power, baddies, and sexiness

Jan 15, 2018

Sexy badguys: power vs confidence vs sexiness. That's what we chat about here. Why do we have sexy bad guys? Are all bad guys and girls sexy? What makes them sexy? Is power truly sexy in fiction or is it confidence? There are so many aspects to this and so many totally unexamined assumptions, misconceptions, and cilches. We try our best to examine all these aspects because we all love a sexy villain and we loved talking about them even better. This week Gunwallce has given us the theme to Really? It's ultra poppy Daft Punk-like, bouncing with joy and enthusiasm, this one wants you to get up and go and it wants you to do it now! Really!

Yes, for certain types of villain that can apply. Because obviously not all heroes and villains fit into those types, some are even those types reversed.

I think that one of the attractive qualities of good villains is their uninhibited nature. When they are well-defined, with an understandable motivation or end goal, there can be an allure to a character that will do anything within their power to get what they want. This is in direct contrast with many heroes' exaggerated responsible, controlled, concientious, selfless behavior. They are often portrayed with a sort of a romanticized view of monastic discipline.
