Please comment and say something or atleast kindly answer the questions
I thought I would make a thread on this topic.


Yes, she hasn't aged well. I agree with that. But c'mon everybody ages! When she was in her prime, she was beyond hot! She has a 'classic beauty' face as well and she didn't undergo plastic surgery to get it like most of today's actresses. The outfit itself is pretty iconic in pop culture as it is really unique with the metal brassiere, bare back and the skimpy piece of cloth covering the rear.
But what makes Leia really stand out is her personality. Despite her clothing, she literally choked Jabba to death with her chain. This was by far the most violent death in a star wars movie. Then she is shown on the sail barge fighting and aims the turret gun too.
I was ten when I watched A New Hope and I was blown away by the first scene itself. Vader scared the hell outta me and I thought Leia had some guts being all smug in the first scene. Not to mention resisting torture.. And taking that blaster from Han, shooting the door, then at the stormtroopers and saying 'into the garbage shute flyboy'. Leia was always a toughie.
She was mellow in Empire strikes back but after Han is frozen and is ready to let Lando die said a lot...not to mention fighting back at those stormtroopers.
Then came Return of the Jedi. When I saw Leia lying naked in the throne room, I was . Later she chokes Jabba to death, escapes, and kicks ass on the sail barge. All the while being half naked. (the part where she runs on the sail barge as the cloth covering her rear flies away a little.... )
The scene, the outfit, and seeing the character we know like this makes her iconic. And IMO, that itself warrants a separate thread.
She was pretty curvy back in the day..Most models and actresses these days are skinny to the point of being anorexic. Just remember that what you see below ain't silicone :p .

And please vote in the poll and also answer these questions if you would like to.

What was your reaction when you first saw her in that?
Which is your favorite pic below(post the pic if your favorite isn't listed).
Which is your favorite scene of her in the outfit?


I was stumped when I first her in that.. The first time I ever saw a woman naked.
My favorite pic is the first one. The body language, etc is awesome.
My favorite scene would be of her on the sail barge.

Why did you change the font to be huge? It was fine, the way it was the first time. I didn't grow up with Star Wars and I had already discovered porn before I saw her in the bikini. I am not being funny, that is a genuine answer. It had no effect on me whatsoever.

I just changed it back to the normal size.

I grew up in the 90s and my dad showed me the OT when I was 12. I had lived a fairly sheltered life and Leia was the first woman I ever saw naked. I think this is what happened with most teens and hence that's why it became so popular. Without access to porn(nor any knowledge of that sorta thing) most male teens 'discovered themselves'' with leia. That's more or less why people go gaga over it. I myself had a thing for Leia in the gold bikini till I was 15.

But without any of this childhood history, do you think she's hot? Or would you classify her as just another woman in a bikini?

I personally don't find her attractive, no. I fully understand how something like that can have an effect on a young mind, though.

Also, she isn't actually naked, is she? It's only a bikini

She's not naked, yes.
But think of what most of went through. Speaking for myself, at the age of 12, I had not seen any skin at all. I kinda also had a slight crush on Leia form eps 4&5. It was along the lines of 'she's pretty..' .
Now being used to seeing her clothed from head to toe and then suddenly seeing her like that was a major change. Also remember that it's the first time most teens saw a woman in 'that way' . She still showed a lot of skin. Enough to get the motor running of teenage boys going through puberty. It's mostly cos we experienced something like that for the very first time.
Something like that leaves a lasting impression.

Tidy? Yes. But you can't very well have one off the wrist with Jabba the Hut knocking about on the screen can you? Or can you?

From who?

Maybe it's because you have 'Jet is sex' as your title and someone thought you were easy.

Jet is Sex though, that is just a statement of fact.

In my defence,I didn't say she wasn't. Indeed, I didn't say anything against Jet who is a very attractive woman.

I'd rather do Jet than Princess Leia, that's for sure

Well, I didn't want to bring that up on account of Jet having her own thread and all. But seeing as you mention it, of course you would (I've never heard anyone state "Leia is Sex")

Jet would make lighter work of The Hut too, she would just knock him out. One punch. Dealt with.

Actually, there was a leia gold bikini pic in the Empire Strikes Back thread and it got some 10-12 responses. I got the idea to create this thread from there.
You were one of the people who replied. This is why I sent you a Pm about this thread to get as many replies as possible.

That's exactly the kind of competitive edge so many posters are sorely lacking. *doffs cap*

Good lord, man, she's just a woman, not some coveted Holy Grail of Sexuality. Reign in that boner.
