Why does every romantic scene in a book, or movie, seem to have candles involved?
What is it with wax anyway?
I've heard the excuse that candles set a sexy mood. Flickering lights are creepy, if you ask me. Dracula's castle is full of candles!
Then there's the argument that we look better in the light of 10 candles than the glare of spot lights. I'll go along with that up to a point...but, I'd rather use a light bulb with a dimmer. It's a lot less likely to catch on fire than candles.
What about scented candles you ask?
No problem. You want a certain fragrance to spice things up? There's incense.
What about candles in sex play? I never could understand the thrill of having someone hold a candle over them and having the hot wax sear their body. Just too strange.
Yet, despite these observations, I know that I'm not going to make an impact on candle lovers. Nor do I want to. This post is about sharing an opinion and nothing more.
So...light 'em if you have 'em! Don't mind me.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
