|There's just something about that name.|
I don't know what it is. Maybe it has something to do with Olivia from Sesame Street or Olivia Newton-John. Who can tell? But the bottom line is that the very name Olivia holds a powerful erotic charge for me. I'm not normally a fetishist about things like that. But for whatever reason, a woman's sexual desirability is increased (at least in my mind) when her name is Olivia. If you have the same affliction, you can blame William Shakespeare, who first used it for his play Twelfth Night back in 1602 and may have gotten it from the Latin word for "olive." Apparently, its relatively recent popularity in America can be traced to the matriarch of that wholesome TV clan, The Waltons, which started airing back in 1972. Whatever the cause, it's been a popular choice among parents for the last few decades, and the "Olivia" phenomenon has spread to Australia, too. Maybe it's because the name sounds slightly old-fashioned and denotes a bit of class without being completely antiquated or stuffy-sounding. Or maybe people just like the sound those letters make when placed in that order. Either way, it's time for me to present my tribute to five lovely women named Olivia who have made the world a better, happier place by allowing themselves to be photographed in a state of undress.
