I went to the doctor bar in Kiev with an Australian girl, and the totally amazing girl who works at the hostel, Natasha. As we waited for our drinks and food to come, we took some silly pictures on my camera, when we started to discuss why it was that Westerners just cannot do "sexy" poses. I am embarrassed to put these pictures online, but they were just too great to pass up.
|Silly pictures begin|
Natasha tells us, put one finger in your mouth and be serious. This is a much harder task than it sounds. It's just silly. Really. Try it. So we give it a go.
|Not bad for a first try, but we are told to try harder|
|Very much not amused by our inability to look sexy|
Thanks, Natasha. We are happy to have your blessings for a peaceful rest.
So we try again, and again. Unfortunately, we just started trying way too hard. As you can see in the below picture.
|Are we trying to hard?|

The images below might be disturbing. Proceed with caution.
So there you have it - Westerners just don't have a natural affinity to do sexy poses. It's not in our blood. I guess I better stick to what I am good at and smile.
|We can still be friends.|
