10 Things That Never Fail To Put A Woman In The Mood

Something as simple as the wind can turn a man on, but women are a bit more complex. We need mental stimulation, not to mention for our partners to put in a little time and effort to get us going. That being said, figuring out how to turn us on really isn’t all that difficult. Instead of just trying to lay it on us, why not try one of these major turn-ons instead? They’re guaranteed to put any woman in the mood.

1. Back massages

Or even better, a foot massage. Strangely, the little gestures that don’t have any ulterior motives behind them are what turn us on the most. Why? Because it shows us that our man actually cares about us beyond the bedroom. If you make it obvious that you’re doing this hoping it’s going to lead to you getting boned, we’ll see right through it and you’ll have wasted your time.

2. Getting pushed against a wall

We don’t want our men to be so rough with us that they leave bruises and scratch marks, but it’s nice to get tossed around a little bit. After all, it’s hot to see a guy take control. It lets us know that you’re so turned on by us that you can’t wait another second to touch us. It has the added bonus of giving us a sense of surrender. We’re in charge of so many things throughout the day, so it’s nice to be able to let go and have you in the driver’s seat.

4. Foreign accents

It doesn’t matter what a guy is saying, as long as it sounds hot. He could learn how to say the alphabet in French and we’d be happy to listen to him list off all the letters. Of course, you can’t help where you were born, so if you just sound like you’re from New Jersey, that’s okay too. However, you can still turn a woman on by throwing in a bit of foreign language skills. There’s just something attractive about being bilingual.

5. Matching underwear

Our men aren’t the only ones who can put us in the mood. Sometimes, we can do the job ourselves. All we have to do is slip into a pair of matching underwear and a little black dress and our confidence will skyrocket. When that happens, being turned on will soon follow. That’s because we know how much our guys like it, and feeling desired is sexy.

6. Neck kisses

A man shouldn’t go straight for the lips. If he really wants to turn us on, he should direct his mouth toward our neck. For some reason, the area is super sensitive. If he hits the right nerve endings, our whole body will shiver. Neck kisses are totally underrated, that’s for sure.

7. The right cologne

Men are visual creatures, but we ladies get turned on by all five senses. That’s why a man with a delicious-smelling cologne will drive us nuts. He won’t even need to do anything except hug us because as soon as you get a whiff of his scent, his job will be done.

8. Whispering

You don’t have to say anything particularly sensual or suggestive here — simply the implication that something naughty is about to happen because you’re using your inside voice will have us screaming inside in the best possible way. There’s just something about hearing a man’s voice get all deep and raspy that will make us want to jump his bones. Pretty soon, we’ll be doing just that.

9. Intelligence

It doesn’t matter if a guy tosses a five-syllable word into conversation or if he tells us a random fact about the economy that we never knew. Whenever he impresses us with his intelligence, we’re going to feel a little turned on. After all, smart is the new sexy.

10. Innocent touches

The best type of touches are when we’re cuddling with a guy and he glides his hands over our bodies absentmindedly. It’s nice to know that he enjoys the feel of us and can’t keep his hands off us. Again, making this overtly suggestive will have the opposite effect, but simply having fun exploring us in an innocent way will seriously get us going.

11. Using your mouth

Men, you underestimate the beauty of using your mouths — and yes, we mean exactly what you think we do here. Women spend a lot of time trying to please the men in our lives, so it’s nice when you want to turn around and return the favor. It’s even better when we don’t have to ask you. Just a suggestion.
