I guess it’s in the eye of the beholder, but I am OFTEN surprised by what appears sexy to me….including smells (or fragrances?)  like:

A guy in a loosefitting but worn out shirt and jeans that ride well in the back but loose in the legs…..
Or guys sweating with tool belts clanging on their hips and workboots.
Messed up hair…longer

Yep, that’ll get me over a guy in a suit any day

I just read this book called “Why Sex is Fun.”  It’s actually about the author’s theories on how we evolutionarily developed different aspects of our sexual biology.  Anyway, the author’s theory on why most women find “working men” (i.e. well developed muscles, tools, sweat, etc) sexy is that our primitive ancestor women wanted men who were hunters and hard workers.  In other words, they needed to be able to do the muscly (not really a word, but it works) jobs that the women didn’t have as much time to do in between caring for all the children and everything.  Clean cut men in suits and nicely washed and cut hair don’t really fit that desciption.

Maybe that’s why Johnny Depp can still be sexy in Pirates even when he’s got a serious hiegene problem.

“why is sex fun” still didn’t explain women’s urge to change our men.  Freud wanted to know what women really wanted and sometimes I think we don’t even know

Meh, as you’re all probably aware by now, I don’t really go for the muscley type guys preferring them tall and skinny. But what I find really sexy are necks and wrists. No idea why (vampire theories aside), but I have to show a lot of self control if a guy with a nice neck walks by. Oh, plus I love it when a guy has nice forearms. You know, when their veins and tendons are nicely defined…

*looks dreamy*

I think I’ll go and see what my hubby is doing for the next ten minutes now wink

Humbug. Instead of invoking gender-specific roles that are culturally determined and make totally unfounded assumptions about gender roles in prehistory, I think its more in the line of a well-build body signaling genetic fitness.

There are many small things that play a role, e.g. studies show that in general people with symmetric faces and bodies are rated more attractive. Again, bodily symmetry is a sign of genetic fitness. We are hard-wired to detect such signs, like many animals, because it increases the chances our species will survive, it keeps the gene-pool healthy.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

I’d agree with Lama there, is all down to genetic fitness and the appearance that the offspring of a “Fitter” looking male will also be “Fit”. This is highlighted by Birds, especially those who use display plumage. Males with more extravegant and colourful plumage are deemed fitter as it would take more energy to maintain such a fine set of feathers.

Personally I’ve got a thing about brunettes and glasses wearers. Oh and like Nettie, I love a girl with a beautiful neck.

I like cheekbones.  Seriously.  I love when they are prominent.  Hence another reason why Johnny Depp is so wonderful.  It’s the cheekbones I tell ya!

Dark eyes, darker skin, yum.
Longer hair, tho not a requirement.
Guys that aren’t too skinny. I don’t wanna feel like I’m going to break them somehow.
That “guy smell” - not a stink, but the ‘who knows what’ that makes me melt.
Lips.
Weird one: I like guys with a slender achilles tendon… very sexy. And no, I don’t have a foot fetish….
And, I love men who have warm, rough-ish hands.
