What, to you, is sexy? What is a complete turn-off? That was a question posed on one of my boards a while back. I thought the answers, from both men and women, were most illuminating and very interesting. See how many points you agree with, or not. Enjoy the song as you peruse the list, and then share your own thoughts on what does and does not constitute sexy.
Long, smoldering, meaningful looks
Subtle anticipation, heartfelt kisses
He's (or she's) interested in being sexy only to me
Making me feel as if I am the only woman in the room
A slow-smokin' fire between two people that you just know is going to erupt into a spectacular conflagration
Smiles and giggles
The smell of a woman's skin without perfume or other artificial odors
Cleavage - less, not more; just a hint is tantalizing enough
The mystery, not the object itself
Watching a woman cross her legs when she is doing it without thought
Watching a woman walking when her mind is occupied
Competent, thoughtful, smells nice, kind eyes
Just the right mixture of natural light and darkness to discover the highlights of a face while the eyes are still visible
A penetrating gaze and a gentle caress, negating the need for words
Seeing the very essence of a human being, through their eyes, without ever letting them know
Discovering your heart beating to the rhythm of your favorite love song
Swaggering is pretty sexy -- IF it's done unconsciously. If it's deliberate, not so much.
I find a touseled man sexy as all get-out
Attractive women with more than one flaw who don't mind their flaws
Genteel flirting (by someone who knows how), proceeding to artful thrust and parry with double entendres, assuming the atmosphere is right, can be pretty darn sexy
Crude and coarse behavior
Catcalls/whistles from strangers
He's (or she's) a player
Suspicion and doubt. If you don't trust me, you don't need me.
Men who flit around like horny weasels
Women who "try too hard"
Too much perfume
Torn blue jeans
Boastful, incompetent, bigoted, and -- spitting
Trying too much to be sexy doesn't always work. Let nature bring it out as only nature can.
Overdoing vulgarity to the point of coarseness
