I have lived in Italy for 7 years and I feel that I have earned the right to say that Italian men are not sexy (honestly I don't mean to offend anyone). Also, the exception does prove the rule. As a whole, they are shrimpy little men, hardly hors d'oeuvres.
Recently I found myself in the Marseilles train station (OK enough with your dirty minds, I was waiting for a train!). There where absolutely incredible beings wandering around in their Kepi Blanc and Legion Etranger uniforms as well as just what appeared to be giant longshoremen out of the Jean Genet fantasy playbook. By the time the train got there I was actually glad to relax with my interior decorating magazine and a nice cool bottle of Perrier.
As for hot well, Les dievx dv stade are the limit of hot, nes pas?
Terry (for the love of Jebus someone rescue me - help I am being held hostage by Italian - well - life)
