Five Times We Are Sexy to Men

Feeling sexy means something different for every woman. Sometimes it's when we're in sexy clothes, and other times it's when we've just woken up, au naturale. Of course it is all about how you feel inside, but according to the October issue of Glamour magazine, it's these five simple acts that men find sexy. Check out what they are below:

When you lock eyes and smile: Researchers at Scotland's University of Aberdeen Face Research Lab proved that when a woman looks at a man, smiles genuinely and locks eyes with him, he finds her face much more attractive than if she were to stare at him without the grin.

When you use girly body language: According to the classic study of 1985 conducted by psychologist Monica Moore, PhD, women have 35 "courtship signals" ranging from hair-flipping to lip-licking that work when attracting men. In Moore's study, the women who used these body language techniques were approached by an average of four men. Those that didn't use body language didn't get approached at all.

When you don't starve yourself: After researchers at the University of Texas at Austin drew figures of female body types for their participants, all the men were more attracted to the curvy images. Apparently men subconsciously know that curves are a sign of health and fertility — nice!

When you're ovulating: Men are especially attracted to women when they ovulate. Researchers say that estrogen plumps skin and lips and promotes a healthy glow so ladies, be sure to hit the town come ovulation time!

When you're the woman he loves: Just because you're coupled up doesn't mean the passion is gone. Research proves that men who know, like and respect someone find her more attractive. And the more he loves you, the sexier you become in his eyes!

I think men find women sexy when they aren't trying to be sexy. The times my husband finds me hot are so random and I could wear the same thing with the same makeup and hair and one time he'd find me sexy and one time he wouldn't look twice. I think it's all about their frame of mind.

Lol yeah, good idea-- go out on the town, get a little too drunk, go home with some guy, don't remember what happened... all when you're ovulating.

A guy where I work is always commenting on how other girls look and checking them out, But he <i>really</i> loves his girlfriend. I wouldn't be able to date a guy like that, I guess I would always feel inferior...but he has a picture of her in her sweats and a t-shirt which he swears she looks the sexiest. She isn't pretty in my opinion but they love each other and that is what counts. :D

My husband thinks I'm sexy at all sorts of different times. I think a lot can be said for men finding the women they love sexier. I mean sure there's physical attraction but I know that myhusband seems to find me more and more sexy the longer we are together. He likes that he feels safe with me and that we have a really deep connection that means he can always be himself with me. That's a pretty powerful thing in my opinion and it's very sexy

I have big hips... sigh. It's such a chore~I was moaning to my boyfriend the other night that I have no "sexy" clothes and he goes "everything you wear is sexy because you are in it"... he's so cute. I want new clothes still though. ;pI'd also say:* when you've just baked his favourite cake (optionally smear it all over yourself too)* when you've cooked a meal for him and served it up with wine~* when you give him a massage with no intention of it leading to sex* when he's inside you:D

BarStar you are exactly right. If your waist to hip ratio is in the 0.70 (im pretty sure thats correct) range that is what men subconsciously find attractive as they know you are fertile. You can be any size to have this ratio..(e.g Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe both had it and they are totally different body shapes)You can get it figured out on fitsugar i think...just put in your measurements!

I'm not sure if this qualifies as being sexy, however, the most I ever was hit on, was when I was on crutches. Every guy had to stop and chat me up. Guys were helping me everywhere I went. it was so nice! Next time I'm in a dry-spell, I'm going to bust out the crutches again! LOL!!!!

I always find that some women on here seem to be overly sensitive...Pixel, when people say curvy they're mostly talking about the hip area not the breasts. Healthy breasts and healthy hips do create a feminine curve, no one needs to go out and get implants.

I agree with all of them, except the last one is kind of dumb, of course he would find the woman he is with sexy, that's probably kind of why he's with her.

On the curvy thing . . .I went to the University of Texas and took a class from the psychologist whose study is what I think this article is talking about. What they found was that men like a certain waist to hip ratio. So if your hips are the same width as your waist, you look like a 12 year old boy and guys don't think your attractive. But if your waist is narrow and your hips are a little bit wider, then you look womanly and fertile :)The study had nothing to do with chest size, so I agree that the way it's mentioned here is pretty misleading.

I just checked with my fiance, and he says he finds me sexiest when I'm lounging around in his boxers, making funny faces and doing funny voices.*He said, "Also when you're naked."

"This is basically telling girls to go get implants, not to go eat more."I dont agree with that. This picture(link) is an example"This is basically telling girls to go get implants, not to go eat more."which do you find sexier? Personally I find the one of the left more attractive. And I think thats what this study it talking about. but...who really knows that they pictures given looked like.
