"Ladies of the Leaf" by Delicia the Cigar Vixen

The majority of the women I have met who are true cigar lovers are actually out smoking in their groups for the same reasons as their male counterparts...why not find this in a more sophisticated venue?

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor has just published an article from contributor Delicia Silva, known as the “Cigar Vixen,” who discusses a woman’s perspective on enjoying cigars in “Ladies of the Leaf.”

Describing herself as someone who feels “at home in a smoky lounge,” Delicia remarks openly to male readers that this is not a “battle of the sexes conversation, nor some movement to infiltrate your ‘happy place;’” but that she believes that the idea of women enjoying cigars should be thought of as “the fairer sex developing a better understanding and appreciation for something you love, cherish, and relish in.”

Acknowledging that the social context of cigar smoking has traditionally been male centric, she talks about how she finds it exciting to see more women taking part in this classic pastime. “The majority of the women I have met who are true cigar lovers are actually out smoking in their groups for the same reasons as their male counterparts: to talk about their spouse, get a break from the kids or vent about work, etc. And why not find this in a more sophisticated venue?” she asks.

Invoking the increasing number of “Ladies Only” smoking clubs and social events, as well as celebrities such as Linda Evangelista, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone having paved the way for women in the cigar hobby, Silva offers advice to women who might feel out of place walking into a cigar lounge. “At the end of the day, you’ll mostly encounter men with as much class as the ritual itself. We all start somewhere, so don’t be afraid to ask questions; it shows you have a genuine interest in the craft, and that you’re not taking it lightly.”

Similarly, Delicia shares advice that a man would find useful in the event he happens to meet a single, attractive cigar smoker, or is trying to get his wife or girlfriend to join the cigar world with him. “Be glad that the women of your life are abandoning the book clubs, luncheons, and bars,” she writes. “Welcome them into the lounge, and show them what the ritual is all about.”
