In this digital era, there's nothing quite like receiving a handwritten note. Especially if that note is written by a handwriting professional — and especially if that note is...sexy.

In this video, calligrapher Natalie Siu shows us how she expertly and elegantly writes some suggestive notes in her signature style. Siu has spent much of her professional life in the world of finance — but we sure are glad she's pursuing her artistic dreams as well, because her "Netflix & Chill" note is ombre perfection.

So instead of reaching for your phone at 2:00 AM, take a page out of Siu's book and reach for a nib and ink.
