I like to watch…

I think the first time I realised that I like to watch was as a young adolescent. I’d taken the train to the city with some friends to see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  It was Moomba (people from Melbourne will relate), which is a public holiday with a street parade. Moomba is an indigenous word meaning getting together and having fun. But I digress…

We had to risk life and limb and cross the road during the parade so we could get to The Regent theatre where the movie was being screened.  I’m pretty sure it was the year I was about 12 or 13 years old.  One of those anyway…lol.

I was having fun drooling over a young Robert Redford. I mean, seriously, who didn’t drool?  That craggy blond hair and mustache…those amazing eyes. *sigh*….then that scene. started..

You know the one…Katherine Ross arrives home to her small cottage and starts getting undressed for a bath.  Robert Redford surprises her and threatens her with a gun, forcing her to take all of her clothes off and untie her chemise.  Slowly.   Very slowly.

Oh. My. God.

My heart pounded so fast and loud I was almost deafened. I was so hot I was sure everyone beside me would be feeling the heat radiating off me. (Okay, I guess this was also when I realised that I liked a bit of Dom/Sub action too, but I didn’t have a clue what it was at the time;-)).

My life changed in that one scene.   It wasn’t just the hormones coming to the fore, it was like a switch turned on.

So now, many years later I still get off on watching.  Mostly watching from the comfort of my bed reading my favourite erotic novel, or erotic movie scenes….the feeling has never died, and now I find myself writing a voyeuristic story.  I have to say it’s making me hot!

BTW…I’ve seen that movie 12 times 🙂  I must get it out again…

So let me know…do you like to watch?  Stand up and be counted!

  1. Oooh, yes, I do love to watch. There is nothing more exciting than someone doing a slow striptease to stir a good dose of lust. And it’s even better if we see it through the eyes of the one watching. So sexy.

  2. Roz – yes, that was and is a brilliant movie 🙂
    Latesha – we believe you. We really do 😉
    Jennifer – *raises hand* visual person here too! I always visualise my scenes before writing them…
    Chellesie – oh yeah…I’d do him for $1mill any day! Or even less LOL
    Kiru – absolutely – we’re all a bunch of voyeurs!
    Andra – I am so with you. Today a young couple who live in an adjacent building were touching each other on their balcony – I am above them, so they didn’t see me – but I saw them. I have to say I couldn’t stop myself from looking for a few minutes before I gave them their privacy. Fascinating watching the play of emotions on their faces when they didn’t know anyone was watching.

  3. Yes, Robert Redford was very hot in that movie, and so many others! What about Indecent Proposal? I keep waiting for him to make me the same offer… I mean about the money, yeah, that’s what I mean. 😉

  4. There’s always a bit of voyeurism in my stories – I am a very visual person and the idea of watching is quite titillating. Especially with a sensual movie, or visualizing a sexy scene in a book 🙂

  5. Depends on what one is watching. I think we all have a bit of voyeur in us. It keeps us healthy and feeling alive. At least that’s my story and I am sticking to it!

  6. No comment on the watching, but you know the scene where they’re sitting by an old bridge, talking? I’ve sat in the same place. It’s in a remote area of Montana. Very few folks go to Montana. It’s short on tourist attractions and sparsely populated.I’m pretty sure there are more cows than people.
    Can’t fault your taste in movies!
