It’s so hard to pick just one of the sexiest things a man can do, so why pick not 15, huh?
Contrary to popular belief, looks really don’t hold a lot of weight in the ‘sexy’ category. Furthermore, the simplicity of the sexiest things a man can do will blow your mind. You ready? Let’s get into it.
1. Teach her something.
An intelligent man is a gift from the good Lord, Himself. Please notice I didn’t say educated. I’m a firm believer that ‘street smarts’ outweigh ‘book smarts’ any day. Just because you went to college does not mean you’re smart. Nothing against those of you gents who truly are incredibly book smart, it’s just something about a man who knows his way around the world. Sorry, boys.
God bless the man with his degree, but I’m here for you men who are able to operate by way of good home training and other gifts/talents as well. The man who is able to teach me something will forever be a treasure in my eyes.
2. Have good taste in music.
When I shared with you 5 things women associate with your skills in bed, I mentioned your taste in music and it’s absolutely true. Women find your taste in music extremely sexy, especially when it’s the kind of music she likes. If she’s not familiar with the music you listen to, she’ll find it even sexier if you can make your style of music appeal to her. You definitely get extra points if you can sing or play an instrument. We melt!
3. Know how to work a room.
It goes without saying that a confident man is unearthly sexy to women. What’s even sexier than you being a confident man is when we see that confident man in action. If you’ve never done so before, invite a woman to join you at an office party or really any type of social event that will showcase your ability to own and work a room. She’ll probably be so proud to be your guest that she lights you up even more than you were on your own. She will definitely be astounded at how sexy it is to watch you handle yourself in this environment.
4. Two words: basketball shorts.
Yep. **shrugs** You know what I’m talking about. If you don’t like basketball shorts, sweatpants or pajama bottoms have the same effect. We’re crazy about them! Sorry, not sorry.
5. Know how to ‘clean up’ nicely.
Extra points if you can rock a bow tie. Women love to see a man dressed down, but we can hardly control ourselves when you’re able to dress up and do it nicely. Just another little tip, the socks matter. I’m a fool for a man who wears those colorful, fun dress socks with a tailored suit and tie.
6. Smell good.
If you haven’t figured this one out yet, take the time to find a signature cologne you can wear all the time. There are certain fragrances that instantly remind me of the man I know who wears that particular fragrance. No matter where I smell it, he always comes rushing back to my mind. You want to have this effect on women—trust me. Another tip, it makes hugs and sex that much better… just saying.
A man who reads can teach me something new. A man who reads takes advantage of his free time. A man who reads is intelligent. A man who reads is ambitious. A man who reads values the opinion of others. A man who reads wants to know more than what people are willing to tell him. A man who reads is patient. A man who reads is SEXY.
8. Know how to maintain good relationships.
This goes for all relationships… business associates, friends, family, all of that. A man who can maintain these types of relationships is usually genuine, honest, and trustworthy. He values each of these types of relationships and is an asset within the relationship as well.
A relationship is a two-way street. A healthy relationship of any kind takes commitment. If you’re able to maintain personal relationships of these types then you obviously understand what it takes to build and maintain a long-lasting romantic relationship.
9. Be ambitious.
God knows I think a man with ambition is just about as sexy as it gets. An ambitious man is strong and passionate in just about everything that he does. This kind of man wins not because he has achieved something (although that is amazing, too), but because he has a hunger to want to achieve things. This kind of man is patient with the process of achievement. This kind of man likes to be encouraged and understands the importance of being encouraged and supported. Be. This. Man.
10. Be a little bit of a bad boy.
Do you know why good guys finish last? Because as stupid as it sounds, women love a man who lives on the edge—just a little. Most women desire a man who has the ability to put his foot down without stepping on her. Women like a strong man to be who is assertive, yet respectful. We even want a man who can make a sarcastic comment without being known as an asshole—and believe me, there’s a fine line here. A little edginess goes a long way, but don’t push it.
11. Have a healthy sense of humor.
Who doesn’t love a person that can make them laugh? A man with a healthy sense of humor is extremely sexy. Women want you to be able to be silly with them. We want you to laugh at our jokes even when they really aren’t that funny. We want to be able to let our guard down and be silly with you. We want you to be able to make us laugh so hard that we end up doing ‘the ugly laugh’ that we hate so much.
12. Be accountable.
Mean what you say and say what you mean. It is so sexy when a man keeps his word and holds himself accountable for his actions. Whether it be something you’ve said you’ll do for that special someone or you’re just committing to eating healthier, stick to it. Women notice when a man is consistent and when his word can be trusted—and when we do, we are surely likely to want to stick around for a very, very long time.
13. Keep your body hair under control.
I didn’t mention hygiene because I’m hoping that’s a given—but yes, we want you to keep all of your body hair under control. You don’t have to shave everything, but we want you to keep things trimmed. I’m not a fan of taco meat, so I’d prefer that to be shaved, but not all women are like that. I don’t have a problem with armpit hair, but it shouldn’t be so long that you can braid it. I also don’t have a problem with pubic hair, but it should always be well-groomed. You don’t want us harboring a small forest down there and we don’t want that from you either. Let’s be fair.
14. Grow a beard.
I know it’s not all that fair because there are some men who don’t have the ability to grow a full beard, but tough shit. Most of us women go crazy about a man who can grow a nice full beard. I honestly don’t know what it is about a beard, but when it’s clean shaven, nice and neat… even got a little shine to it. Mm-mm-mm. There’s just something so manly and sexy about it. Not to mention how much it shows that your hygiene is on point.
15. Know how to hold a conversation.
Women love to talk. A man who can create, engage, and even end a conversation appropriately is very sexy! I’ve noticed that people tend to highlight the sexiness of a man who can hold a conversation, but you know what really turns me on? A man who has the ability to end the conversation in a manner that leaves the conversation on my mind and that leaves me wanting more. I love having that ‘I can’t wait til he calls again’ feeling in the pit of my stomach, honey!
Well, there you have it, gents. Just some of the sexiest things a man can do, in my opinion. You’ll notice that most of these things are practically effortless and none of them involve sex, but we’ll tackle that next time.
