Ryan Gosling's sex appeal may seem like a enigma, but some elements of his attractiveness could be explained with scientific data. In recent years, we've learned a lot about sexual attraction from studies on the subject, like what sort things make a guy especially irresistible besides the obvious good looks and sense of humor. In fact, you may be surprised by what makes men attractive to the opposite sex. So let's drool over some eye candy — all in the name of science!
As Kmart's "Show Your Joe" commercial proves, the more sexy guys the merrier.
I don't know about you, but my spidey sense is tingling.
In other scientific news, Matt Bomer's smile actually cures cancer.
4. A Beard
Idris Elba could give my face beard burn with that sexy stubble any day.
Jamie Dornan (aka Christian Grey) looks hot in a plain white T-shirt, sure, but even better when taking it off.
7. Rosy Cheeks
Studly ginger Prince Harry may be getting older, but his boyish charm and rosy cheeks are here to stay.
8. A Big Penis
If you've seen Michael Fassbender in Shame, you know what I'm talking about.
No one does contemplative brooding better than Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games films. Hot.
The accent, the white t-shirt, the guitar-playing skills — Luke Bryan is basically the whole cowboy dreamboat package.
11. A Thin Physique
Svelte Swede Joel Kinnaman is an international import you're gonna want to look up.
So basically, Ryan Gosling.
In conclusion, the most attractive type of guy is a brooding, glasses-wearing, guitar-playing, thin guy with some stubble who wears white T-shirts. (I'll have to get back to you on the penis size.)
