His Unusual Turn-ons
May 01, 2013
You might think that a low-cut top matched with a breathy voice and lick of the lips is enough to send a man into the stratosphere of arousal (and you’d usually be right), but men can be just as enigmatic as women in matters of sensual.
Long-armed ladies got the highest ratings, while lengthy-legged girls didn’t even rate in the final figures.
So what’s the reason? One theory posits that long arms give a woman a slimmer appearance, and another is that men want a partner who will come in very handy on a trip to the apple orchard.
But before you start Googling ‘Arm-extension treatment’, check out the other unexpected ways a man can be turned on;
More than just a vehicle for scripted drama, there’s hard science behind the connection between fear and arousal from the University of British Columbia who conducted a study putting male volunteers into situations involving varying amounts of risk. The ones who faced more fear were more graphic in their answers on a sex survey – delivered by a beautiful assistant – following the event.
The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology published a 2008 study from the University of Rochester that had men rate the attractiveness of a number of pictures of women wearing clothes of all colors.
The highest-rated? You guessed it – women wearing red. Meanwhile, different colored clothes – worn by the exact same women – scored much lower.
Some men fall for women whose facial features are similar to their own, and this is based on the theory of homogamy – that we reproduce with people who share similarities to us in some way, bringing into turmoil the whole ‘opposites attract’ thing we hear so often.

Among more than 23 fragrances, the Smell and Taste Research Center in Chicago founds that the smell of pumpkin pie mixed with lavender increased penile blood flow the most.
Are you thinking what we’re thinking? Thanksgiving will never be the same again.
Finally, one of his biggest turn-ons you’ve perhaps not realized until now is your sex toys; we’d be hard-pressed to find any man that doesn’t appreciate knowing that he’s with a woman who knows how to take her pleasure.
And considering that men are most aroused by what they can see, bringing your toys into the bedroom for a new kind of playtime will be a win-win kind of situation – if there’s a better kind than that, we’re all ears!
