Older Men: Love them!
Jaxx Steele here to give you my take on older men. I wanted to take this moment to give props to sexy older men. The man that is aging like fine wine, getting sexier as time goes by. You know the ones I’m talking about: the Sean Connerys, Mark Harmons, Samuel Jacksons, Denzel Washingtons and Antonio Banderas’ of the world. Honorary mention, the late (and very delicious) Ricardo MontalbÃ¡n. (RIP)
I write romances and work really hard trying to bring out my characters inner as well as outer beauty. Although most of my characters are in their mid twenties to mid thirties, I absolutely adore older men. I have nothing against a young man, I just prefer an older man. If you will continue reading I will share a few reasons why.

Now, that the legalities have been observed….
The physical beauty of a young man is one of his assets to be sure and surely one of his prize possessions. I mean, who doesn’t walk along the beach just to see those lovely hard bodies, burned to a golden glow by the sun, glistening with a sheen of perspiration, flexing beautifully in the bright July heat? I know I do!
0-0 *ahem* Sorry about that. I was lost in the visual.
Anyway, as I was saying, that’s all good, but what else does he have going for him? Inner beauty last far longer than outer does because we all age (that is if you don’t die in your prime, then you’re pretty forever) By no means am I trying to bash younger men, but if physical beauty fades with time and that’s all you have, well…
An older man who is healthy in mind and conscience of his physical health can be just as beautiful! He appreciates the days he has and lives them to the fullest. His graying hair looks distinguished on him and ups his sexiness tenfold. As far as physical beauty goes, Father Time has been kind to his body because he remains active. He may not possess that six pack he used to at twenty five, but at forty five he is in good shape and shows appreciation for your six pack! And Lordy! Let’s not forget there are still a few out there who do have the body they had at twenty five!
There is also the matter ‘finding ones self’. A young man is still searching, looking, trying out new things and figuring things out in all levels of his life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. We change as we grow into the person we are going to be. It’s a fact of life and we all do it. When dealing with a younger man you have to be prepared for that and be willing to be flexible enough to ride out the changes you may not like.
But!…an older man has gone though most of the transformations men go through to make them men. Therefore, he is less likely to change on you. They have already been educated so they are intelligent, worldly and confident in who he is as a man. He has no problem teaching you what he knows and welcomes the challenge of learning new things from you.
I would love to read more gay romance with older men like that. I have seen and know some outstanding men in their forties, fifties and even sixties. Men in the prime of who they are and looking fabulous. I wrote three books with this type of man. If you’re interested in reading them they are Papa knows Best (Phaze), Care Package (Silver Publishing) and coming this holiday season to Muse it Hot, the first book in the Hosting for the Holidays series. All can be found on my website as well as other stimulating reads. Feel free to leave a comment on how you liked my blog.
