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.

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."

Who doesn't enjoy a compliment every now and then?

For some people those backhanded compliments are unintentional, for some they're very much deliberate and for some people it's actually their love language.

Whatever the purpose, some of these veiled insults are downright clever.

We can get invested in the story to the point we begin to have real feelings about the characters.

That's why having a favorite character die can cause real grief.
