"What turns you on?" Have you ever asked a lady that question? You would be surprised at how different women are when it comes to this.
Being a master of foreplay is definitely great but, way before 'bed matters,' you can turn her on without having to touch.
There are a thousand and one unconventional ways to entice a woman and keep her interested. The benefit to it is that you keep her thrilled and, by extension, keep the flame of passion in your relationship alive. Here are what 13 women have to say about the one thing that turns them on.
Ever heard about how attractive a man at work looks, especially when he is totally invested? Now imagine a man hard at work with veins protruding from his arms rippling with sweat... Breathe. Lol.
Erika, 22 says:
"The hand-to-forearm region. A platonic friend driving stick-shift? Take me now. Something about a good-looking set of capable hands makes me wonder what else they could get up to."
A Kiss On The Forehead
Kisses, in general, are intimate. But, a kiss on the forehead is gentle and reassuring. You might not expect it to turn her on, but 22-year-old Bri thinks differently.
"It's such a simple thing, but it feels so intimate since it's such a gentle gesture. It makes you feel loved and cared for - not just like a slam piece."
A Man Who Doesn't Try Too Hard
Raw naturalness turns Heather, 23, on. She said:
"One thing that gets me is when my boyfriend gets ready in the morning. He wears nothing but his boxer briefs, they're fitted to his body, and his hair looks disheveled. He has his glasses on and is still kind of sleepy. I guess in that state. He's so natural. Nothing's forced. It's very raw."
The eyes hold so much emotion that even without words, they speak. For 22-year-old Molly, it's her turn on. She says:
"Prolonged eye contact, but in a loving way, not in an I-might-kill-you-later way. I know he's paying attention and cares what I have to say."
A Man Who Isn't Ashamed Of Being Embarrassing
Holly, 21, finds men who make a fool of themselves attractive and fun. She says:
"Dad dance moves: If a guy is down to publicly embarrass himself with some awful dance moves, sign me up. I think it's cool when a guy tows the line between having himself put together 24/7 around me and being able to completely let his guard down and be goofy. No one likes someone who takes themselves seriously."
A Well-dressed Man
This one is screaming my name. Add "a man that smells nice to that," and I'm ready to make him mine. 24-year-old Sara agrees with me:
"I am a huge sucker for a man in a suit, or really a well-dressed man in general - doesn't have to be a suit. It makes an average guy attractive and an already handsome man a knockout."
When He's In A Cardigan
Imagine yourself wrapped around him inside his cardigan. Maja, 22, says:
"I love it when the weather gets chilly and guys wear tons of layers. If they wear cardigans, sweaters, scarves, and a beanie, I'm a dead woman. I'm attracted to guys who are put together and take control of their lives. I just imagine them carefully putting together their outfit and being proud about looking both fashionable and warm. Also, I wish I could be zipped up in their coat and snuggle."
Kind In And Out
A man who is nice to family, friends, and strangers and is genuinely happy for others can be d*mn sexy. Rebecca, 29, agrees. In her words:
"If a guy is encouraging and uplifting to others, I usually peg him for having a whole host of sexy attributes: He is innately positive, he enjoys his career, he is genuinely interested in and celebrates the success of others... the list is inexhaustible. Bottom line: This guy is happy with himself and makes the world a better place. Now that's attractive."
An Intelligent Mind
This is for our sapiosexuals. Intelligent men who can hold conversations with something to say on almost every topic without sounding like a know-it-all and the ability to say they don't know when they don't remain golden. Maddie, 23, says:
"I love when guys actually listen and make conversation with you without making any sexual advances or being creepy. That's how I can tell he's actually interested, and it's really attractive when a guy can have an intelligent conversation."
A Husky Voice
This is another one for me; a soothing, barry white baritone - music to my ears. Kerry, 26, says:
"A deep, husky voice. It makes them seem strong and serious."
Amy, 32 says:
"Fixing something - especially fixing something with your hands, like a broken cabinet door or a dripping faucet, or even fixing or removing a virus from my computer. It's manly, sweet, and super sexy."
A Confident Man Who Doesn't Show Off
A man who knows his onions will always be attractive, but when he adds humility to the mix, he's a total package. 29-year-old Mariel said:
"A quiet confidence. There's nothing more grotesque than a guy who's all out there, showing off a car, his suit, or puffy muscles. But a guy who's leaning back in the corner, taking in his surroundings, and feels no need to show off... sexy as hell."
When He Is Passionate
Speaking about something he is passionate about brings out this enthralling side to him. 25-year-old Erin says:
"When a guy speaks intelligently about his passion, I melt. I once asked a guy out after he told me about his congressional letter-writing campaign. College was weird but, you get it."
