What Really Turns Women On

7 Things That Turn Women on More Than Looks

Emma Chow, co-host of The Edge 96.ONE's Breakfast Show Mike E & Emma, talks about what women really find attractive, other than abs.

I would be lying if I said women don't care about a guy's looks — of course we do! But it's not the most important thing to us. There are so many other ways a guy can be attractive, because women are turned on by the way someone makes them feel. A guy could be a total rig but what's going on upstairs? Is he intelligent? Can he make us laugh? Is he fun? Is he a good person?

Here are seven things that turn women on more than looks.

A guy who is ambitious.
Guys who are driven are hot because they're working towards something they're passionate about — whether that be career progression, travelling the world, or learning how to build something from scratch. There is nothing more unattractive than a guy who walks aimlessly through life.

A guy who is kind.
We all loved the thrill of the bad boy at school but in the real world, no one wants to be with an asshole. A guy who is kind and considerate not only to his family and mates, but also to strangers, is a major turn on.

A guy who doesn't play games.
Don't get me wrong — we love the flirting, teasing and banter, but a guy who is straight-forward is a winner. He's not into mind-effing you, doesn't purposely wait three hours to text back, and has no problem saying how he feels about you.

A guy with a sense of humour.
I've been in relationships with guys who take themselves way too seriously and let me tell you, it is the pits. Laughter will win a girl over from the very start. If she's laughing when she's around you, you're 90 percent of the way there.

A guy who is confident (not cocky).
Confident guys are sexy. They know who they are, what they want and how to get it, but they're not douchebags about it. Unlike cocky guys, they don't need to show off — we can see how awesome they are by the way they carry themselves.

A guy who is good with kids and animals.
A man who is gentle, patient and caring towards small humans and cute animals is such a turn on. Bottom line: it means he will be a good dad in years to come.

A guy who loves adventure.
Guys who live life to the max are so much fun. They're exciting, proactive, love getting out of their comfort zone, and are always up for going somewhere different or trying something new. If a girl is having fun with you, she'll always come back for more.
