For men, being sexy can feel awkward and uncomfortable. Spoiler alert: It feels that way for women and femmes as well, but at least feminine sexy is a bit more clearly defined.

Masculine sexy is a whole other animal. So let's talk about it.


Reddit user Gokusrightnut asked:

"Women of Reddit, what is a non-sexual thing your partner does that gets you in the mood every time?"

Get ready to take your screen shots, jot down notes, etc. There's a lot of lesson here.

As a woman, please, I implore you... use the power held in this article wisely.

Never miss another big, odd, funny or heartbreaking moment again.

There is nothing people hate more than when a major turning point in their favorite TV show is spoiled for them.

Friends were undoubtedly lost over the fate of Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy, fights broke out over who killed Omar Little on The Wire, and the identity of "A" on Pretty Little Liars.

The anger of these devoted viewers becomes more and more ironic with each passing year, as they eagerly rewatch these shows on a semi-regular basis.

Despite knowing every possible twist, turn, surprise kiss, or unexpected death.

This time, however, they don't care, as the mark of a good show is one that creates a world we just want to reenter over and over again.

Perhaps the lack of any possible "spoilers" only increases our enjoyment.

Roughly 12 percent of the world's population is left handed.

Studies have shown that being in this distinct minority comes with a number of advantages.

Indeed, four the last seven Presidents of the United States were all left-handed,

And considering Phil Mickelson, Rafael Nadal and Oscar De La Hoya are all left-handed as well, it seems lefties are at an advantage on the field or in the court or arena.

Though, if you were to speak to a left-handed person about their experience, they'll more than likely bemoan all the disadvantages of being a lefty.

Of which, there are admittedly several.

There is little more comforting than lounging on the sofa, and binging your favorite sitcoms.

What ultimately makes sitcoms so comforting, in addition to the clever writing and improbably affordable apartments, are the characters.

Why Friends continues to gain a new legion of fans, even nearly 20 years after its finale, is the fact that those watching often want Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and especially Phoebe to actually be their friends.

Or wish their own friends' dynamic was more like that iconic sextet.

Indeed, people would be much less hesitant to show up for work if they knew The Office's Jim or Pam would be waiting for them, or think that their school days might have been more pleasurable if taught by Abbot Elementary's Janine Teagues.

Characters who are so lovable, it almost breaks our hearts that they aren't real.
