I am always amused when a man asks me what women think is sexy because it indicates that he doesn’t think he is sexy and plans to change his clothes/hairstyle/religion/car to recreate his own image to fit into a mold.

Gentlemen, when it comes to sex appeal, there are no absolutes. Just as every man has his own idea of what kind of woman he finds alluring, women have their own individual preferences about the kind of man they are attracted to.

If there were 50 men and 50 women in a room and you asked each of them what characteristics they find appealing, you would get 100 different answers and would be shocked by the results!

If I had to answer this question in one sentence, I would say the sexiest thing a man can do is to be himself. You want to find a woman who loves you for you and accepts you the way you are.

Besides, most women do not want some fabrication of an Abercrombie & Fitch model. They want a real man who is comfortable in his own skin and confident about who he is.
