Our last word of the day — which really is more a word of the month — was so popular that we’ve decided to make this a regular feature. The English language is wonderfully nimble and the escorts at Paradise so gorgeous, that there are infinite ways to describe them.
Cynosure has its roots in Greek mythology and literally means dog’s tail (kynós dog + ourá tail). Doesn’t sound so nice, but Cynosura was a nymph on Mount Ida on the isle of Crete who hid Zeus from his vengeful father. In return Zeus placed the little nymph (after a good shag most likely, Zeus was a randy deity) in the heavens at the constellation known today as Ursa Minor, and she became its brightest star, Polaris.
As the most dazzling heavenly body in the night sky, Cynosura has guided countless navigators throughout history and drawn the eye of any human who’s gazed upwards after sunset. As such, cynosure has come to mean anything that strongly attracts attention by its brilliance. The Girls From Paradise Gallery is chock full of cynosural women; luminescent in their lustrous beauty, they attract appreciative attention wherever they go and are sure to make you feel like a star.
If you’re ever tempted to use a line like “Hey baby, you must be a light switch, cuz every time I see you, you turn me on!” Take a deep breath, reconsider and try “Your beauty can only be described as cynosure, a brilliant light to guide weary travelers.” That might be a little intense, maybe just “can I buy you a drink” and save the cynosure talk for a couple of minutes.
