Word of the week #17


Yesterday marked the debut of a new feature, The Naked Truth, which got off to a great start courtesy of the very charming and talented ZoĆ« Saldana. The fact of the matter is that there's nothing quite like a beautiful woman posing in her underwear to attract the attention of the internet, which is something Miss Saldana clearly excels at, amidst her many other talents. 

I wasn't sure what this week's word was going to be until late last night, when I was perusing my lists of fantastic words (yes, I have them - but if you hadn't guessed that I'm that kind of person by now, you might want to give your geekdar a significant retuning) and came across the perfect one for describing the key to Miss Saldana's appeal. Sadly, it's not 'geekdar', which I think I just made up.

Your word of the week is...
 
Vesthibitionism 

Noun: The flirtatious act of a woman revealing her underwear. Pronounced as written, from the Greek vestimenta, meaning underclothes (one to remember), and exhibeo, meaning to show.

Example: Poor Mark was quite overwhelmed by Rihanna's display of vesthibitionism in her new video, leading to him getting accusing stares from his wife for the rest of the week.
