Odd things that turn you on

For me, here's just a few: 1. I like seeing a hint of a guy's ankles when he's walking, especially if he's wearing jeans and trainers 2. I love a guy in grey sweatpants, especially if you can catch a glimpse of the outline of his dick 3. I like catching a whiff of a guy's scent, for example, on the train this morning, I was seated and there was a guy who was standing next to me but facing me. I noticed he kinda leaned in so that his crotch was right in my face and he had a really nice smell. It was a turn on.

Lower back muscles. I worked with one guy in particular who always wore untucked tees. He would frequently scratch his lower back and lift up his tee exposing them in the process. You could practically see down his shorts, boxers, and ass crack while he was sitting at his desk leaning forward focusing closely on something on his computer.

When you can see the waistband of a guy's underwear, like if he's crouching down or stretching to lift something overhead, etc. A good example is a scene from The Bourne Identity when Matt Damon is fighting someone and you can repeatedly see the top of his white underwear. All I could think of while watching this was what type of underwear was he wearing. I don't think the director or Damon had this in mind when filming!

This is gonna sound nasty but here goes. At work one time, at the urinal, one of my colleagues came rushing into the bathroom to take a piss and then he farted loudly. He laughed said that he had been wanting to do that all morning. I found it to be dorg of sexy because he was so relaxed and open about it. Plus he was cute.

Similarly when he leaves his underwear on the floor of the locker room by his locker when he's gone to the shower or a guy going into the shower at the pool and taking his trunks off mid-shower and hanging them on the towel hook.

by Anonymousreply 66Last Tuesday at 8:02 AM

When straight guys use public showers, but leave their underwear on. I wish they'd take them off. But it's hot to me when I think about them being too nervous or shy to let it out. The underwear get soaked and don't hide much, but no one saw their actual dick.

Probably above any and everything else, a man's voice. His voice can make or break an attraction.

And I love men who make noise and/or are verbal during sex. It doesn't have to be porn scene chatter, but I don't like the "I have to be quiet or my mom might hear me" business, either. I want to hear that grunting or a "take it" when that load is spraying on my face.

So I’m a 95% woman-leaning bisexual (gold 🌟, have never dated/fucked a man and may never), but if we’re going into really deep dark non-PC truth that you’d never admit IRL? A really fucking stupid spiceboy pro sports player absolutely does something for me.

Bonus if he’s got long hair, awful trashy clothes, a pretty body (either curvy or skinny, as long as it isn’t hench), and a noticeable comfort with showing same-sex affection and femininity. I don’t know what it is about this type that drives me wild. They’re like dumb soppy loveable dogs.

A chain around a guys neck.

I've been with a couple of guys where they've cum, and then they bring me off with their hand afterwards, and they will lie there and kind of whimper in my ear while they do it. It's hard to describe, it's like they make these sounds like they might if I were inside them. That turns me on. And the way some bottoms play up a kind of submissiveness when really they are in control and getting what they want. I like that.


Oh god, YES! I lived in rugby central until recently, would bump into well known players in cafés and places like that fairly regularly. Once I caught a plane with a team of them. It was all I could do not to go masturbate in the plane toilets. They were so big and broad and I felt so small and at their mercy, it was very hot. On arrival at the airport, I had to pee, and got to line up at the urinal next to them while we all peed. Not a thing I am generally into, but it was hot in that case, all these attractive players, and knowing if I just turned my head there was a whole lot of cock for me to see.

I couldn't help noticing the guy next to me really needed to work on his hydration, though.

The truth of the matter though is, I like the vast majority of men and all sorts of things will turn me on. There's no real rules, more rules on turn-offs if anything.

Men are just... beautiful, quite frankly. I love them.
