There are a few quick-and-dirty biological imperatives that will turn many a man’s head. As always, men are more complicated than a lot of people give them credit for, and when it comes to turn-ons, the masculine gender has plenty of surprises up their metaphorical sleeve. Here, some of the ways to effectively rev the masculine engine.
Ask a group of guys what turns them on about a woman, and you’ll sometimes get the predictable answers: full lips, full bosom, full booty.
These are a few quick-and-dirty biological imperatives that will turn many a man’s head. But a lot of women fulfill those requirements already. So what makes certain women boy magnets, and leaves others spending Saturday nights watching Saturday Night Live skits?

Don’t get me wrong: it’s not that we want a woman who can balance a beer tray on her head. It’s what good posture says about her.

Men know that women cry. Men know that women can get hurt. Men want to be there to help whenever they do. But there’s something insanely attractive about women who can bite their lips, buck up, and grit out some of life’s twists, turns, sprains, and pains.
Note: Before you throw e-daggers my way, I’m not suggesting that it’s not OK to cry or that women shouldn’t seek proper attention when they’re in pain, either physically or emotionally. (Nor am I saying that lots of men don’t need to heed this advice as well.) I’m simply saying we’re often drawn to partners who can walk off life’s minor insults.
When we were growing up, we used them to show our team allegiances. In college, we used them to hide bed head. Past the age of 30, we mainly wear them to cover our bald spots. But no matter what team we root for, we like a baseball cap the most when it’s worn by a woman. The look sends all kinds of messages about the kind of woman she is: sporty, strong, comfortable kicking back, Sox fan. (All the better if it’s a Cubs hat – she’s an optimist with a great sense of humor.)
