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.

Two Words

"Ahem 'Good Girl' "

- tacos4uandi

"My boyfriend one time whispered that in my ear and I swear I felt my throat and heart both drop to my vagina."

- Trackgirl123

"My main squeeze says this to me and I absolutely go weak at the knees."

"It's just the way it rolls off his tongue omg. Like, yes sir I am a good girl please tell me more lol"

The Big O(boe?)

"One my friends got married last year and now I'm good friends with her husband. He basically told me that he found out that whenever he plays his oboe (he's in an orchestra or something?) she always wants to have sex."

"He's just started playin it whenever he gets in the mood now."

"She 'thanked' me when she got home. 😎😎😎"

- blyss73usa

"Honestly men taking care of kids is one of my biggest turn ons. Seeing a Dad being cute with his baby girl, even just the guy making silly faces at my daughter."

- dollyprincessb

Sexy Sleeves

"When my husband rolls up the sleeves of his sweaters."

"Don't know why, but that look is just so sexy to me haha."

- NalaandBuddy

"Giiirl. Met a guy with his sleeves rolled up while in a bar."

"Went up to him & commented on how hairless his forearms are. He’s Asian and I’m Greek (which equals hairy) and I had a few at that point so I had no filter."

"He responded and said he’s as smooth as a dolphin. We’re married now."

"Rolled up sleeves is what brought me to my husband 😂"

Something Needs Fixing

Tummy Peek

Linguistics

"I agree with all of these and want to add how I love it when my husband speaks Spanish."

"I don’t know 95% of what he is saying when he’s on the phone with family/friends, but good lord. And if it’s a work call and he’s using his commanding 'work voice', double hot."

- ronsinblush

"When we’re speaking English and he answers the phone or just talks to someone else in his native language (German). I think German is hot already but the sudden switch is just too much to handle."

- scarlettcandlestick

Grunts

"The grunts he makes when he’s fixing something/working out…"

"One time we were at the junk yard and just watching him pull parts made me wanna do it in one of the random cars right then and there."

In order to live a happy, healthy life, it's important to look to the future and leave your past behind you.

Even so, very few people don't find themselves laying awake in bed at night, or ferociously chopping vegetables in their kitchen feeling resentful, or holding a grudge from something in their past.

Losing a lead role in a school play, not making varsity, being excluded from a birthday party everyone else was invited to.

No matter how long ago it was, it's still hard to shake off the feeling of disappointment and anger you felt at the time.

For some, the bitterness is. like a pot of tea, and only grows stronger the longer it steeps.

Try as I might, I just can't get into the Kardashians. I think most of us are tired of them, actually.

But their fanbase is massive and they are pretty much the American version of the royal family. They wouldn't have attained that status without a legion of loyal fans who eat up everything they do, contributing to a massive collective social media following.

But fans of the Kardashians are just the most high-profile fanbase you might know about.

There are others you might not be so keenly aware of.

Life is moving so fast.

Everytime we get used to something it seems like it evolves and we have to learn more.

I miss CD's. Spotify confuses me.

AOL chat rooms were simple. What the H*LL is Discourse? Or Discontent?

I miss TV just being on channels in the box.

There are so many apps I have cold sweats.

And I can just tap my credit card and pay for things?

It's too much.

But all the things I learned will soon be gone.

Like the OG Toys 'R Us.

Time to say farewell...

What do we writers always say?

The truth is far stranger than fiction.

When we watch a movie there is constantly a scene where people are like... "THAT could never happen!"

Well it could and it has.

And there is more truths and facts throughout life just like fiction.

There is so much more to learn beyond science classes in school.

Wikipedia has educated us all.

Truth is truth.

So let's hear some facts that'll surprise us.

It's been so long.
