When Is Not-So-Sexy... Oh-So-Sexy?

Belly dancing...or talking politics?

Jeanny Weinstein, 30
Ethan Weinstein, 36
Married three years

JEANNY: I feel so sexy when I belly dance. It's a very sensual movement. I just started taking classes and each time I go, I feel more and more in tune with my body. When I get good enough, I may do some dancing for Ethan. I think he'd like to watch me move like that!

ETHAN: I always find Jeanny sexy — she's gorgeous! But her interest in politics and her ability to talk intelligently about it is what I really find attractive. Jeanny grew up in a very nonpolitical household, but she's become a lot more informed and concerned about the world. We'll go see political documentaries together and spend lots of time afterward discussing them. I suppose, though, I like this part the best: Although Jeanny is a very amicable and tolerant person, she's been in situations where she's been surrounded by people who have strongly opposed her views — and she has always stood firmly by her beliefs no matter what. Watching her defend her ideas makes me want to scoop her up and take her into the bedroom.

Sharing successes...or sharing dreams?

Sharon Anderson, 37
Jim Anderson, 46
Married eight years

SHARON: Doing something I love and being successful at it is what really makes me feel sexy. For example, I direct a local high school musical each spring. When the show finally goes up on opening night and I feel proud of the work, it's exciting for me to have Jim in the audience to share it with. I feel strong and accomplished — and therefore desirable.

JIM: Whenever Sharon talks about having children, she projects an aura that I find irresistible. We've both been involved in kids' organizations for years, and I already have two kids of my own from my first marriage. Since my girls were toddlers, Sharon has been there for them — not as a substitute mom, but as their friend and guiding hand. I love her all the more for what she has given the girls, and I want nothing more in the world than to have a baby with her. This shared desire gives our lovemaking an undertone of tenderness and purpose. Thinking of her as a mom makes her incredibly sexy to me.

Hot mama...or earth mother?

Sandra Juliano, 36
Michael Juliano, 43
Married seven years

SANDRA: I feel sexiest when I go through the "transformation" from mom to woman. I switch from sneakers to heels and from baby-food-stained clothing to a clean and stylish outfit. I put on Chanel perfume and take out my scrunchie and let my hair fall to my shoulders — without having to worry about my kids pulling it or getting syrup in it! I walk and talk differently — I feel different. There's no heavy diaper bag weighing me down on one side, and there is never any mention of SpongeBob or Lightning McQueen. I go from being an active mom who reads silly stories about talking cars and who blows raspberries with the baby to the adventurous and flirty girl Michael met 11 years ago.
