The Weirdest Things People Find Extremely Attractive

Sometimes attraction makes no sense.

But who hasn't been dumbfounded by the things that give others the tingle?

I have a friend, who finds men who yarn as a hobby... IRRESISTIBLE.

It's a strange thing to get hot and bothered over, but who am I to judge.

It seems like anything big or small can be a trigger, in the right places.

There is no rhyme or reason.

Just nature doing its thing.

Redditor Undecided_User_Name wanted to hear about "unique" ways people find themselves turned on, so they asked:

"What is the weirdest thing you find extremely attractive?"

Don't Speak

"Husky voices on girls. If she sounds like a dude, that's just insanely hot? No idea why."


Butt Out

"My husband can do an incredible impersonation of a gorilla. Knuckles on the ground, butt sticking out, huffing noise, the whole deal. Wouldn’t you know that has gotten me into bed more times than I would care to admit it! I want to say it’s mostly because he makes me laugh so much but damn, sometimes I see a gorilla and I’m like, 'Wow, he’s pretty handsome.'"


Nothing Fancy

"When they go all the way dressing up. Not in the fancy way, but in the 'Oh there’s a theme and I’m not shy to go all the way with my costume.' Shows confidence and a great fun factor.'"


"For me that also goes for events. When I was in nursing school, we had what was called our white coat ceremony in our first semester. It's like a 'welcome to becoming a nurse' event; we all dress business casual, wear our lab coat, have a guest speaker, and take pics. It's sweet and feels pretty special, but it's not as big of a deal as our pinning ceremony."

"So we all show up for the event, and in walks one of our classmates in a full, blue suit. A horde of my classmates erupted in 'aww's' because he had clearly over-dressed, but that one event made me look at him different for the rest of my schooling. It wasn't the fact that he was in a suit, but the fact that he was over-dressed and not in a cocky way. He actually was really embarrassed when he realized his mistake, but damn I still feel a little tingly inside about it."



"Some impurities in the face like freckles or random black dots. My boyfriend has this one black dot directly below his eye in the middle of his left cheek. It makes him infinitely more valuable on the face market to me. Looks so darn adorable."


"That black dot may be a skin tumor/cancer... Not saying it is for sure but especially if he only has one and it has a texture, unevenness, he should get that checked. Especially if it is new and he didn't have it as a birthmark."


Hold Me

"Whenever my fiancé cuddles me, she puts her whole face in my neck and gives it kisses. It's not only sexy but super endearing. It's honestly the most adorable thing and she just fits so perfectly. I love her."


A good snuggle, even an aggressive one, is welcome.

"The idea that in this microwave ready, Instagram perfect world, that there are people, like all of you in this thread, that appreciate the imperfections in people and make them sound like the most attractive features ever."


I'm Listening

"People who can ramble on about their passion/s for hours. I love listening to people talk about the stuff they love."


"Honestly this is just such a help for my own self-confidence. I often keep on rambling on and on about stuff I like and half the time I just feel like I'm talking too much and the other person just wants me to shut up."


"This is hit or miss for me. I enjoy a good conversation, but I have a friend who if you ask him a question, he will go on foreeeeever without you being a part of the conversation. He just keeps talking about trains and star wars and Dragon Ball Z and airplanes and sh*t like that for like 20 minutes or more and youre just sitting there like mhm.... please stop."


Drowsy Hot

"Don't know why, but exhausted men look super hot to me. Probably because being exhausted is as close as being the real you as possible."


"I think there's a couple 'raw' versions of people. A great one is when someone is just completely relaxed, like present and not worrying about anything else at that time. You get to see what they think and say and how they act when the mental space is cleared and they're free to think about whatever without life's demands pressing into their consciousness."


Wear it Proud

"My husband got himself this bear onesie. The first time he put it on I was like…what is this feeling? Why am I aroused right now? After a few occasions of him wearing it I was like, well I guess I’m a borderline furry (although I think it’s the snuggly softness that does it for me rather than anything animalistic)."

"He still thinks it’s very weird, but he will put it on for me when I ask. Too bad for him our anniversary is in the height of summer."

"Onesies are widely available, so I don’t really understand why so many people are asking where he got it (I mean they’re literally everywhere, and it’s not like his is special - it’s not a magical onesie, it’s just a normal, fluffy onesie with a hood and bear ears - it’s also not one of those loose ones - I like the way it hugs his butt…) but he bought his in Next, a basic high street shop in the UK. That was maybe four or five years ago, though, but you could definitely get one on Amazon."

"Recently I've been working out more. My wife says the veins popping out of my arms and hands get her all hot and bothered for some reason. Either way it feels good when she touches them."


We all have our little sexy soft spots. Veiny as they maybe.

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
