Is Bruce Lee Sexy?

A recent poll at Quizilla revealed that 35 percent of women and even 16 percent of men admitted that Asian icon Bruce Lee was sexy.

This was the majority vote, and only a small percentage of women stated that they didn't find him attractive. What does this teach us about the Asian community in America today?

What it says to me is that some Asian men are simply too hung up on the race issue to really reach out and take what they want. There's nothing wrong with an Asian male going out with white women or Latina women. Most people don't care about interracial relationships anymore, so it's not like it's a scandalous thing. Most women, as the poll indicates, are even quick to describe some iconic Asian males as very sexy.

Yes, some women may say they don't feel attraction to Asians. However, you have to take such a statement with a grain of salt. Women are not motivated by physical attraction. Women want to be emotionally stimulated. They want their passions aroused and their emotions fulfilled.

A woman is not going to instantly know if a man has this sexy attitude just by his facial appearance.

(Yes body language is important, but faces are just extensions of the soul.)

Usually a woman who makes such a blanket statement is associating her past with her present. Maybe she believes that because she's never dated an Asian, she can't feel attraction to him. Or maybe she believes that because she's only dated black or white men, that's what she's attracted to. Wrong! She's attracted to the alpha male profile, and any man of any race is capable of becoming that.

Perhaps the biggest problem in Asian interracial dating is with the men themselves. Asian playboys need to step up and realize that they are sexual beings like anyone else and deserve whatever woman they set their eyes on.

Don't buy into all this trash about being out of the league of a beautiful white woman, or that all white women automatically reject Asians because of some sexual stereotypes. The first step in scoring with white (and other) women is to get over your own self-limiting attitude and then focus on breaking down your woman's own self-limiting barriers.

Bruce Lee was sexy because he was an alpha male. He was fearless, physically fit, ultra-disciplined and could hold some killer eye contact with the best of them. You could be even sexier than Bruce Lee and redefine the modern sex symbol for your local Asian community!
