What one person finds sexy is anther person's ick factor.

It's an eternal debate.

The mind, the heart, pheromones... it's a messy combo.

To each their own.


Redditor PetrichorPrints wanted to hear about what makes many of you tingle in ways the rest of us don't get.

They asked:

"What’s something other people find sexy that you just can’t understand?"

I'm not telling you my secrets. But I'll listen to yours.

Stung

"People doing fillers to make their cheek bones look more 'refined.' it just looks like you got stung by a bee."

'right there.

"There was a dude years ago that I was seeing, we're on a webcam and he said he liked my crease. Had no idea what he was talking about and he kept saying 'right there.' Turns out he likes armpit creases."

TinkleTwinkleToes

"That is oddly specific. Congrats, you taught me that literally anything can be a turn-on for the right people."

Speak Up

"That voice some women put on to seem cutesy/sexy, I can only describe it as 'baby voice', but it just annoys me. Talk like an adult."

HuskyLuke

"That's the voice I use to talk to my cat. She doesn't care if I talk in my normal voice, but slap the baby tone on it and she's all ears."

HuskyLuke

"My wife had a friend who did that baby voice. Not all the time, just when she thought she was being cute. It used to drive me crazy, especially in the car. One day when I was driving them back from a crafting event we had agreed to drop her off at her place. As we got closer, she baby talked , You don’t have to stop. Just slow down and I will jump out. Hehehehe.”

"After we dropped her off, I mimicked her 'I’ll just jump out. Hehe.'"

"My wife said, 'I felt like shoving her out the door and shouting, Tuck and roll, *itch!'"

Awaken

"Interrupting while I'm asleep."

Dea7777

"Yes! I always wondered if I was in some very tiny minority because it seems to be labeled as a 'hot' thing to do. Waking me up in the middle of the night, you’re going to get someone angry, disheveled, and confused. I’m surely not going to be rearing to go. I don’t even like being touched in my sleep. We have the whole waking day to bang."

nononanana

"Omg this is a double edged sword for me, because I love the fantasy of my husband taking me when he wants but the actual execution of this? Nope nope nope! Let me sleep!"

Serious

"The serious/intense 'model' face (ie. Blue Steel). Completely unsexy."

DiscreetJourneyman

"I’m assuming you mean faces 'like' Blue Steel but not actually Blue Steel itself which is incredible."

Werk. Stand. Give. Face.

Too Big

"I don't understand the big breast implants some women get. Breast implants are fine but the huge a** ones are just a massive turn off."

6969sinep

"Totally get this. I've always felt the same way. Until I met my wife. The first time I saw her breasts I was flabbergasted! 'Cos they're not over the top while she's dressed. But once they're free and breezy I immediately questioned their authenticity! She never hid the fact they aren't real, but my word they've changed my mind on augmentation! Teardrop implants can be (trust me) magnificent!"

Attitudes

"Being mean to someone. I understand it's 'I'm so sexy I can treat you like crap' attitude, but what about 'I'm so confident, I don't have to put people down' confidence?"

kai1415926535

"If you mean someone getting turned on by another person being mean to them then it's almost always a domination thing."

JohanGrimm

"I question more the people who are with these a**holes. I don't get how someone likes that at all unless they're masochistic. And even if they are, I would imagine they would want someone who's only that way in the bedroom and not all the time."

When at work we all often come across situations where you say... "I did not sign up for this!"

I've worked in a lot of customer service, and the vile, horrifying things I could tell you.

I can't imagine being a cop, firefighter, paramedic, or park ranger.

I'd never sleep again.

Where I went to school there was a special program that the super smart could enroll in.

It was called 'The International Baccalaureate.'

It's an intense program of elite classes, taught by the finest minds, and triple the homework of everyone else.

It was assumed that every student in the program would go onto rule the world.

Some did. Some most definitely did not.

Others cracked under the pressure of the program and fell apart by sophomore year.

So you never know.

The Kindest Things People Have Ever Overheard About Themselves

There are plenty of backstabbers and those who are purported "friends" throwing you under the bus to save their reputation.

Who knows what else is being said about you behind your back? Is that paranoia? Perhaps.

When we're feeling insecure, we tend to assume the worst about the people we include in our circle. Maybe it's time to stop that.

Because as it turns out, for the most part, people are kinder than we give them credit for, and not everything being discussed about you behind your back are always bad.

We've all had our moments where it took us an embarrassingly long time to grasp a concept.

Something we can laugh off after a few minutes, days or years.

However, sometimes we might encounter people whose grasp of reality, logic and common sense is so off the rails, that we still have trouble shutting our jaws.

We're talking "next-level stupid."

Mind you, this doesn't necessarily mean that these people are stupid themselves.

Rather, they find themselves in a moment where they don't come off looking like the sharpest knife in the box, leaving all those around them dumbfounded.

And inadvertently providing stories which will last them a lifetime.
