(NSFW) What essential characteristics epitomize female sexual attractiveness?

Asked by Dr_Lawrence (19406 points ) 3 months ago

I believe this answer varies widely from one person to another. Despite stereotypes promoted by the media, I think we can expect that what constitutes sexual attractiveness differs greatly from the stereotypes. I am counting on thoughtful, respectful answers that avoid ones that trivialize women. Thanks.

Confidence.

Seek's avatar

High cheekbones, arching eyebrows, heavy breasts, and a confident, dominant personality.

I prefer brunettes.

symmetry and proportionality.

Her genuine smile is an “essential characteristic”. Nothing progresses further without that.

unless she’s paying my bar tab

My first answer would be confidence which @zenvelo already gave. Second is knowing how to flirt properly.

This may fall under trivializing women but I read recently from psychology today, so grain of salt… Dilated pupils, exclude sexual energy, thicker thighs and hips for optimal child birth also speaks to a good balance of dha. Thin waist so less likely to be pregnant with another man’s seed. Then healthy looking complexion and nails and hair speak to good breeding stock a smile genuine approachable.

Not something I can put my finger on, a woman either has it, or not.

There is scientific evidence that a small waist to hip ratio is universally considered attractive. Makes sense to me. Curves are sexy.

syz's avatar

Athleticism, intelligence, humor.

RocketGuy's avatar

Waist to Hip ratio = 0.7 to 0.8

mazingerz88's avatar

@RocketGuy I…don’t know how to visualize that. Hogarth’s Line of Beauty I think I do. LOL

Waist-hip ratio is the most important factor for physical attractiveness. General health and personality come in at a close second. Us guys are simply hard wired into fertility cues.

In order for me as far as physical attraction

1. Eyes
2. Good hair (doesn’t have to be stylish, just doesn’t have be butchered either!)/Nice vocal range, not too low not high at all, (I dated a whole bunch of high voiced girls in middle school to this day they still sound high pitched erk!)
3. Sexy legs
4. Medium sized ass (Sorry if it’s too big nope, it’s too small, I can’t do anything with that in bed)
5. Small-Medium boobs

As far as the mental aspect

I don’t like them overtly spiritual. Sorry but there has to be some sort of distinguish between reality and the moon affecting your personality on a certain day because the tides are being pulled. Open mindedness is a big thing with me. If you come off with arrogance, AT LEAST have some facts backing your statement up, I don’t care if you only have one fact backing it up if you speak in arrogance I classify them as pure friend zone.Be nurturing, have a heart!~ Too much science and a guilty conscience is such a turn off. Be passionate & good at something WHILE knowing you are passionate and good at it. I’ve dating boring girls before who were so lack luster it was a turnoff. Women have more power than men, it’s just more men are foolishly confident, more women should become more foolishly confident!

A ponytail. mini skirt, and a strong yet soft embrace.

@rojo Nailed it. Symmetry is associated with physical beauty and with physical ability. A symmetrical figure indicates fertility and an ability to survive child birth.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Define “trivializing women”, then I know if I can answer it without doing it.

LornaLove's avatar

For me, it’s their basic femininity as I see it. Softness, longer hair, very womanly ways, curves all the things a man doesn’t have.

(OK some men have curves, but they are NOT attractive haha!)

DAVEJAY100's avatar

Big tits long legs and no tongue.

zenvelo's avatar

@DAVEJAY100 No tongue? You just took 50% of sexual attractiveness right off the table!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Maybe he meant no teeth. Hey @Hypocrisy_Central…. @DAVEJAY100‘s answer was a good example of trivilizing women.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

^ In that case I can only sum it up as:

• Loyalty
• Teachable
• Willingness
• Trust
• Obedience
• Service
• Child desiring

bossob's avatar

^^ I’m confused. I thought we were talking about women, not dogs.

Regarding the OP, one of the first things that appeals to me is posture. Good posture is usually accompanied by self-awareness and confidence which are also attractive.

I think that what one considers the epitome of female sexual attractiveness varies by individual. Overall, I would say that what men find the most attractive pertain to curves, smile, eyes, hair, and facial symmetry. Personally, I think a woman with a pretty face and a nice smile is the epitome of attractive. I also look heavily at what she is wearing. I’m not a fan of women who dress too promiscuously or too sloppily. Although I’d like to say I’m swayed by curves, I’ve found myself being attracted to women of all shapes,sizes, and colors because they all had different special factors that made them gorgeous.

^ I’ve found myself being attracted to women of all shapes,sizes, and colors because they all had different special factors that made them gorgeous.
How many shapes are in “all shapes”?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Dutchess_III All of them
I have a hard time thinking Rowena Buxton or this woman is included in ”all shapes and sizes”; I believe it was more of a generic statement and their are some women that would not make the cut.

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

Thanks to you all for your answers. Computer problems have kept me offline for quite some time. I find that self-confidence, intelligence and being a good listener as well as an articulate communicator are attractive. Good grooming is more important than idealized ratios.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

^ So, a very self-confident, MENSA smart good listener with very articulate speech, wise, witty with a bonus she owns her own business making 7 figures (so she is not after your money) but she looks like number 2 in the aforementioned links, she would be attractive because she matches the metaphysical traits you mentioned?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Sounds good to me!

RocketGuy's avatar

How about: a healthy attitude about sex? Worked for me.
