[Potentially NSFW] What turns you on?

Asked by Mimishu1995 (6892 points ) 3 months ago

The concept of “turn-on” here means a lot, depending on how you view it. It can be SFW or NSFW – but not necessarily the classic “makes you sexually excited” or “attracts you to another person”.

I’m wondering what makes people excited to be alive, what gets their heart racing and spirit singing?

So, what grabs your attention or piques your interest? What turns you on?

Intelligence. Intricate knowledge and ability and desire to explain that knowledge.

Richard Dawkins and Neil deGrasse Tyson are sexy motherfuckers.

Smarts was my first thought.

Music and those who have the ability to create it in whatever way.

I’d also throw in compassion and caring for others. Just being able to emphasize with others. Being self sufficient and not whiny, taking the initiative. Throw in some nice curves and I’m there.

Witty. I love when someone is smart and funny. That combination is always good. Also at the top is compassion. As far as things that are a turn on. The blue skies, sunshine and warm weather help me feel alive and wanting to meet the day.

Military uniforms, business suits, I want to rip them off instantly lol

ragingloli's avatar

Many things.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Intelligence and all the naturally attractive stuff mentioned above. But really turned on in a major way while still clothed? You know that breathless way in which some women speak, like Jacqueline Kennedy or Marilyn Monroe? Other women hate it. For good reason. When it’s genuine, it’s a huge turnon and I have a real hard time keeping my shit together.

Well screw it, someone has to get crude here. It’s Friday after all. I love to watch a woman get her rocks off for real, and if she’s loud so much the better.

Someone with logic and intelligence as well as a sense of humor. I just love seeing my husband do chores. It’s not the doing household chores, per se, it’s the idea that this is our space together and he values it and me.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Adirondack I like the way you think! ;)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@KNOWITALL Hey we may go to hell for our bad thoughts, but I’ve had a heck of a lot of fun getting there. :)

A healthy antiauthoritarianism. And boobies.

Intelligence and humor.

filmfann's avatar

A subtle hentai Unfortunately, it is rarely subtle.

Coloma's avatar

Yep, intelligence, wit and humor, followed by fooling around after a nice swim, or during a swim, or before a swim, ideally in some beautiful river, or a hot tub. haha
I like nature sex, outdoors, under the stars, in the river, lake, or on horseback.
I’m always up for being bent over in the bushes. lol

ucme's avatar

Firm titties & a warm moist vagina.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Ucme Picky aren’t you? lol

ucme's avatar

Haha, I tell it like it is.

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

A man who’ll let me ride his face until I fall over unconcious. Yup, glazing a nose like a donut, or finding buried treasure. Either one.

GloPro's avatar

In proper writing standard format: I like to give blowjobs. My ex-boyfriend turns me on.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@GloPro @Jonesn4burgers You two or on a roll today. Keep up the good work. I love a lady that knows what she wants. :)

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

^^^^^ Mmmm, a little clockwise, and go for it! :-0

I am quite picky. These days, if you have a PhD in physics and are a bit of a rock-star in your field of science and you have an inner warmth and calm, travel nearly 5,000 miles to fix my dishwasher and my kids really like you, you’ll get lucky.

sorry, @Seek I don’t find Dawkins sexy at all. He’s an arrogant ass (My son and I found two factual errors so far in his book written for kids) , and Hitchens was a misogynist pig. I can’t talk about NdT because there is a good chance I might meet him one day in person and I don’t want to embarrass myself. He seems nice.

Coloma's avatar

@cazzie Haha…me too, super picky, probably why I only venture forth on about one “date” every 15 months. last one the guy was so boring, I almost fell asleep at the table. lol

Seek's avatar

A little bit of arrogance is fine with me. But your superhero does take the cake. I never really did find Hitchens very attractive, but that’s more the alcoholic thing. Bit of a lush, you know.

Seek's avatar

Yep.

And, very pretty. I like the glasses.

bolwerk's avatar

@ragingloli is a furry gynophagia fetishist? Who knew!

Physically: I’ve narrowed it down to combined eyebrows, eyes, cheekbones and jawline positioning, proportion and structure. But sometimes it’s just all about dat booty.

Personality/mentally: Honest, intelligent, tolerable of my insanely idiotic levels of immaturity at times, patient, understanding, open minded, and wit is always a plus

And there’s fantasy that I’ve spanked the monkey to – and a few I’ve gotten to live out – but that list is too damn long. So in the words of Alucard, “There’s no one alive who can comprehend my sexual preference.”

rojo's avatar

Lingerie…......................... and light bondage.

AshLeigh's avatar

Entirely too much information. I feel very uncomfortable posting this, but I’m doing it anyways:
People’s knees.
Hands in my hair.
When I’ve said Gods name enough times to get into heaven.
The space inside his arms. The collision of our bodies in time with our heartbeats, hitting like flint and stone.
Sliding my mouth across his body. He smells like rain that won’t come until tomorrow. Cords of moonlight stretching across his chest.
His mouth. My skin. Hands trickling down thighs.
A devilish grin that brings my blood to boil. He is intelligent and attractive and I like to make him moan my name.

Brian1946's avatar

Anything that’s referred to as “this crap”. ;-)

cazzie's avatar

I’ll have what @AshLeigh is having…..

Oh my God xD

That’s what I was answering btw :)

talljasperman's avatar

A warm hug…

Mimishu1995's avatar

@anniereborn That sentence is the mods’ idea, not mine :p

@talljasperman HUGS! GIVE ME HUGS!

Coloma's avatar

Heh..sex pales in comparison to amazing nature moments, beauty, light, clouds, art, my darling animals funny antics, writing/poetry, outstanding mexican food, cerveza and killer massage. Haha
Gimme a stellar summer night, excellent food, nature sounds, a massage, a soak in the hot tub.
My joke for years now, no man can compete with the turbo jets in the hot tub, alas they don’t speak philosophy very well but, ya can’t have everything. lol
