Sexual fantasies are kind of like handbags: no matter how many are hanging in your closet, you usually end up sticking with the same one. Now that I've exhausted that analogy, let me tell you where I'm going with it: So that you and, let's be honest, me can update your fantasy collection, I asked women which fantasies get them to the finish line without fail. Jessica O'Reilly tells Bustle.
The brilliant tumbler feed Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor has inspired me to add my two cents to the discussion. Why does my opinion matter? I make actual armor that people wear when they hit each other with swords.
I have an opinion that hasn't, to my knowledge, changed one book, picture, video game, or anything else. Diversity in art style is no more or less important than diversity in audience.

Final Fantasy is one of the most successful video game series of all time. The game brings incredible stories, impressive gameplay, beautiful soundtrack, and more. One thing that the games bring that have become a staple with many friends are the amount of beautiful woman in the game. The girls are as gorgeous as they are tough.

Final Fantasy is a legendary franchise, which matches series like Mario and The Legend of Zelda as one of the longest-running franchises of all time. Unlike those series though, Final Fantasy games are often completely disconnected from each other, taking place in completely different worlds inhabited by completely different characters, and bonded only by certain mythologies or running themes that connect each game. One such theme, although the creators would definitely deny it, is that of hot girls running around in skimpy outfits and killing monsters. The first ever Final Fantasy game featured Princess Sarah doing all but the last part, and every game since then has introduced a handful more, with the outfits getting tinier and tinier as the series has gone on.
