Seven Years

February 8, 2011

in Contemplation

Seven years ago today, a few short months before turning 18, I started this blog.

As is often the case with smoking fetishists, I thought I was alone with my fetish when it first developed in my early teens. That is, until one day when I was perhaps 14 or 15 a Google search found some *very* interesting sites.

My only access to the internet at that time was on school computers. I would head to the computer room most lunchtimes and explore this new horizon of the world wide web. It was around the year 2000 and whilst interest in the internet was growing, it was hardly a mainstream way to spend a lunchtime.  But I had some sleuthing to do. I eventually stumbled across a site called ‘The Lighthouse’ filled with off-colour pictures of girls with 80s hair styles, dangling cigarettes in their mouth.

I had struck gold.

I scribbled down the address on a piece of paper before closing the browser and nervously looked around the computer room.   I was sitting at a school computer with an erection, something that would have been near impossible for my peers as traditionally pornography was blocked.

Understandably, my interest in the internet and the sites it offered only grew.

By 2004 I had decided I was to document my interest in smoking girls and sat down to compose my first post seven years ago today.

It was a hurried post on my parents computer after getting in from school.  Knowing nothing about servers and websites I decided on a free blog site and the site went live that day: Smoking Women are Sexy had begun.

As the archives show, it wasn’t a very cheery blog.

I was plagued with self-doubt and self-pity. My smoking fetish was a curse that destined me never to date a girl good enough to bring home to my parents. My mother would never tolerate a smoker.

Yet, the copious amounts of  self reflection made the site a hit and all was going well until the blog, hosted on the free blogging platform, dissapeared one day, taking with it 3 years of posts and keaving a loyal following out, like a smoker outside a club, in the cold.

But like a smoker extinguishing a cigarette, it was only a matter of time before the next one.  Smoking Women Are Sexy relaunched in November 2010, a spin-off of a Smoking candid venture, Flamingo’s Friends -free weekly smoking candids to your inbox.

A big thank you to everyone who’s joined me on this crazy ride and here’s to another 7 years…

I hope you enjoy following along with a smoking fetishist’s life. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll have a treat for you as I hope to recount meeting that smoker of my dreams that I’ve fantasized about ever since I first set eyes on those off-colour photos of girls with 80s hair dangling cigarettes.

As for my mother, she’ll just be relieved I’ve found a girl.


Hi. I’m I’m Flamingo, founder of Smoking Women are Sexy. I LOVE seeing a chain smoking hottie  because being addicted to smoking is sexy. Sexy smoking women irl really do it for me. And two women sexy smoking together is even better. THe best sight is a cheek hollowing drag from an older smoking women so I share cheek hollowing drags photos on my blog, Smoking Women are Sexy. Thanks for stopping by. I also enjoy writing with key words -as does my friend, Mr Google!

I can remember back in the mid 90s my friend had a sister that was hot. I was in her apt sitting around and she came out dangling while her hands were tying up her hair. What a sight. BTW, you need to send me the #2 pic of the girl in the hat. Nice drag and damn cute to boot!

What a wonderful sight that must have been, thanks for sharing.

The pictures in the post aren’t mine -they are some of the more ‘early’ smoking fetish pictures online. It’s a gorgeous drag on the cigarette isn’t it?

To me, a girl dangling a cork tipped cigarette, as she ties up her hair is just about the hottest thing she can do. When a girl dangles, it’s as though she has made her cigarette part of herself. She is a Smoker, with a capital S, and proud of it.

Happy belated 7th, Flamingo! It’s been a pleasure to be on the ride, and great to have you back online. Thanks for explaining about the blog’s disappearance – I was wondering what happened.

In my case, it was a web search for “female celebrity smokers” that led to the certainty (via Loring Holden’s Female Celebrity Smoking List, and the links on the celebrity pages and on Smoking From All Sides) that I wasn’t the only one with the fetish. This was in 2002, my first year of serious Web surfing, and the rest is history.

I agree with Stonewall about the girl in #2. Very cute, and totally absorbed in that drag.

Thanks Felix, I really appreciate having you as a reader too. Loring is a great guy to know in this ‘niche’. In fact he financially supported this blog back when I was using a free server and needed to pay for more bandwidth on the images once the blog started getting popular.

He was a life saver for a poor college student like me!

i’ve only been on the internet for six years, but i am certainly thankful. i wish i had a penny for every magazine, of any kind, that i bought over the course of forty years just to get a pic or two of a beautiful girl smoking.
i just realized that i had actually read your blog a few years ago, and wondered where it went the last time i tried to find it

Flamingo February 11, 2011 at 1:39 am

Great to have you back, Jim. I’m the same although I have the benefit of finding the internet before I had bought too many magazines. I was worse for watching lots of boring films and tv series, just because one of the characters smoked for a few seconds. In fact, that’s where I get my alias, Flamingo Road, from -Flamingo Road was the first film I watched solely for the smoking, when I was 15.

Throw back film….Matt Dillion if I remember was the star?

Joan Crawford and the classic one:

The first girl looks like she’s sexy and fun. I love the lipstick stain on the cork filter and the ash on the other end. The ash represents the pleasure-filled smoke that the woman has already inhaled from her cigarette and the remaining white part, the pleasure she’s yet to have!

So much sexy potential :)
