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!

1. "Hanging" With His Friends

As Kmart's "Show Your Joe" commercial proves, the more sexy guys the merrier.

2. Wearing Glasses

I don't know about you, but my spidey sense is tingling.

3. Really Good Teeth

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.

5. White T-Shirts

Jamie Dornan (aka Christian Grey) looks hot in a plain white T-shirt, sure, but even better when taking it off.

6. Playing the Guitar

I mean.

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.

9. Brooding

No one does contemplative brooding better than Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games films. Hot.

10. A Southern Accent

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.)
