Top 10 Sex Icons of All Time

From Marilyn Monroe to Angelina Jolie, these female celebs have animal magnetism like you wouldn’t believe.

Farrah Fawcett

Mankind has always been fascinated by stunningly attractive women. Tastes have obviously evolved over the years (petticoats and corsets have pretty much died off thankfully!) but the rule of thumb remains – if her face and her booty are bangin’, you can be sure that straight males will flock to the cinema, max out their credit cards on erotic keepsakes, and make damn fools of themselves in an attempt to get up close and personal with their favorite starlets.

Here are 10 famous women who have perfected the art of the sex symbol…

Bettie Page

Bettie Page

Fetish model Bettie Page was a breath of fresh air, to say the least, during the era of sexual repression. She was first discovered in 1950 by an aspiring photographer who asked her to pose after noticing the buxom babe hanging around Coney Island. Five years later, Bettie landed a shoot with Playboy, and her fate as a professional model was sealed.

Marilyn Monroe and Mae West up next…

    Marilyn Monroe for sure!

  2. CityLady212 says:

    How can you choose just one? This is a superb list.

  3. kitty says:

    It seems crazy to put Marilyn Monroe and Megan FOx on the same list of anything! But I suppose Megan is basically a sex symbol.

  4. IHeartMyKids says:

    I don’t think I agree with Megan or Britney being a part of this list. Let’s check back in 10-20 years to see if they stood the test of time like Marilyn did!

  5. violetgal says:

    OMG Farrah was so beautiful!

  6. Hampton says:

    I so question several of your selections but that is probably due to your young age. You forgot to add: B. Bardot. Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth,Betty Grable, Jayne Mansfield, Catherine Deneuve and Joan Collins just to name a few.

  7. cab11 says:

    not to point out another obvious sex symbol…cough.. halle berry.. cough :-)

  8. globalgirl0228 says:

    No women of color? Seriously? Shame shame Betty!

  9. Arkansas Annie says:

    Thanks for the list, Betty. But just TEN sex icons? I know, that’s a nice round number. But not hardly enough.

    Hampton and cab11 have already called attention to some real hotties. I’d add Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

    Being a fan of classic Hollywood, I must also list Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Dorothy Lamour, Hedy Lamarr, and Elizabeth Taylor.

    My fave? At the moment, probably the late Farrah Fawcett. But not just for her beauty and sexuality. I admire her whole package: what she did, what she stood for, who she was.

    I even named one of my cats after her.

  10. Megan_RS says:

    CHERYL COLE!!! no doubt :)

  11. twayned says:

    Marilyn Monroe, so sexy !!!!!!!!!

  12. lddcw says:

    beautiful (Vivian Leigh, too), but were the all really sex symbols? Gaga is too weird to be a current sex symbol for the masses.

  13. krislovejmt says:

    Although she hasn’t had much “screen time”, Catherine Bach is most definitely a sex icon.

  14. singingnymph says:

    Mae West was the queen of sex. She was intelligent, witty, independent & totally hot. While it is easy to want to add other classic actresses (I do love Betty Grable & Marlene Dietrich), she beats all of them, hands down. And where the heck is Eartha Kitt? Sophia Loren? Raquel Welch? Ann-Margaret? As for the more modern sex symbols, I’m with you on Madonna & Angelina & maybe Farrah, but the rest don’t don’t work for me. Try trading Vivica Fox in for Megan Fox. Sade, Salma Hayek & Gwen Stefani are on my list. And I bet if you asked the guys, Toni Braxton would have it all over Britney.
