I'll second sun dresses...as well as Anna Davlantes, for that matter...

also, pretty, painted toes on a dainty woman's feet (bonus points for crossing one's legs and letting the shoe dangle precariously from the tip of one's foot)...

an uxexpected smile from a stranger for no good reason...

an attractive woman who can also cook...

the "sexy librarian" look (i.e. glasses + book = intelligence)...

free spirits...

more to come once my coffee kicks in...

- The red floral print sun dress. Why else do I sit there and watch that Magic Bullet commercial for the full 30 minutes?

- curly hair, as in a lion's mane of tightly curled ringlets

- women who flick their tongues out when pronouncing worlds like these, that, those

- skin smooth like polished marble

- short women

So if you're 4'8" to 5'2" with a tight perm and a sun dress, you are my kryptonite.

Mikey / May 23, 2007 9:35 AM

OK, cobwebs beginning to clear now...

A luxurious, delicious meal.

That moment of contentment while lingering in bed on a Sunday afternoon when I fully appreciate my body, while curling my hair around my fingertips.

Seeing a man in a suit that fits him perfectly.

Really, a well-dressed man, period, is a turn-on...as it doesn't happen very often. Or at least I don't get the pleasure to see it that often.

Listening to someone talk about something they are really passionate and knowledgeable about.

Wicked sense of humor.

Someone who smiles easily.

Someone who is gracious, kind, and yet has a backbone.

Full lips.

Nice Hands.

Nice legs. Oh, how I appreciate a man with nice, muscular thighs. :::le sigh:::

And of those nice legs are attached to a tall man, so be it.

Standing on warm, white sand looking over the Gulf of Mexico in complete solitude.

a truly funny woman
a smart woman
a woman I can take inspiration from
a woman in "grocery shopping" clothes - jeans, tshirt, sweats
a woman who works out (not insanely, but...)
women who are tipsy drunk where they're relaxed, not sloppy drunk.
bold women
curly haired women
red haired women
Rosario Dawson, Mariska Hartigay, Sandra Oh, that one woman from that Illinois Lottery commercial, the one where there are scenes shot in different thematic colors (yellow - guys watching basketball, blue - people in laundromat. she's in the last segment, the green/nightclub thing. she's the tall, slender one on the left. when she does tha shimmy dance thing, I have to excuse myself to the bathroom).

Oh, and oatmeal cookies, a great infield play, when I write what think is a particulary good scene in this play I'm working on, payday and driving around on a warm day with the top down (like today).

I think I just had an orgy with myself...

Short skirts that hug a nice ass

A really nice ass.

The way knee length skirts get tight when the one leg is forward and the other is back.

Intelligence is extremely sexy.

Natural beauty i.e. no make-up and still gorgeous.

A sense of style, not so much well dressed (expensive clothes) as dressed well the emphasis being on the way you wear what you have.

Panties. The word as well as the article.

I find confidence very sexy, but I avoid confident women like the plague.

Watching myself masturbate. I m not sure why but I find it sexy.

Michelle / May 23, 2007 12:30 PM

Steve, back in the early '90s I was very fond of wearing vanilla oil. One night, while walking up to a banquet hall where a politician's fund-raiser was being held, a guy I kinda knew came up to me and excitedly said, "Did you bring cookies?!" I gave him a look and replied, "Um, no." "Oh," he said very dejectedly, "I thought I smelled cookies."

So, yeah, vanilla = the expectation of cookies. Turns *me* on.

The glimpse of a woman's panties as her top hikes up in back upon sitting down...

Allan / May 23, 2007 1:36 PM

I had a friend who happened to be a girl. We were never involved but she used to fart in my face like an older sibling would do to a younger. I always acted like it grossed me out but secretly I found it unbelievably sexy and it made me want to jump her bones. Other than that I only liked her as a friend and didn't even find her attractive . Occasionally I would be sitting next to woman on the train and would smell a fart and the same thing would happen. Does any other guy get off on this? Or girls?

opps, I spelled my nom de guerre wrong, blame it on Allen.

Did you notice how his first post was"normal" at start? I was disapointed as I read it. I kept saying this isn't Allen! Where did he go?

Then the last line, there was Allan!

The next post, was all Allan!

Nicole, I'm sorry I'm not a boy because (aside from the tie) you just described me.

I like it when a (my) boy:
pets my hair

walks around with a towel tied around his waist

has sorta veiny forearms

listens to feist

doesn't wear socks

and makes that cute little "hmmmmm" sound when he's content

eep / May 23, 2007 2:35 PM

Wrists, from about mid-forearm to the first joint of the thumb.

Broad shoulders.

Someone wearing jeans, and nothing else.

Several strong martinis.

Alan / May 23, 2007 2:39 PM

It is odd how Spook gets uncomfortable when I say something he perceives to be out of character for me, thus threatening to shatter the little box he likes to keep me in. Conversely he also seems to take great comfort when I say something he thinks befitting someone like me. I think Spook is more like me than he would like to admit and I have no doubt that he enjoys watching himself masturbate given his preoccupation with staying in shape, which eludes to the type of male vanity that would allow for my statement to be painfully true. Take a long look in the mirror my friend. I am you. I am you.

Yikes!!! / May 23, 2007 2:50 PM

You have just described me to a tee! It is a little scary how accurate your description is. I can't help but wonder what your ass looks like?

Judy / May 23, 2007 3:13 PM

That crease that starts at a mans illiac crest and goes down towards his pubis.

I'm not describing this well at all.

Judy / May 23, 2007 3:19 PM

okay, here's a pic - it's a statue of a torso just in case you are at work.
The crease just below the belly - angular towards the hip. dig?

sky / May 23, 2007 3:39 PM

In an unlikely twist, Spook you cracked me up. Allan, you have to admit that the fart thing was far from the little box. I think it might be hard to find a strong following of people that enjoy being farted on.

moody / May 23, 2007 3:40 PM

Allan-

my ass is quite nice i have to say. but, um, it's hard for me to imagine you as shy or sensitive…

rebecca / May 23, 2007 3:43 PM

judy, i always just called that the 'boy muscle' and yeah it's sexy.

also poker-face/stoic guys because its such a turn on when you see a hint of a smile or desire in their eyes.

n / May 23, 2007 4:00 PM

I would have interpreted "boy muscle" differently... butwhat judy and rebecca are talking about is the epitome of sexy to me. Especially with the perfect, somewhat worn jeans riding just off the hips, and a bottle of chilled - well, chilled anything, really (see emyduck).

And strong arms - not steroidy, but strong soccer/ultimate frisbee player arms and shoulders.

Yowsa.

as for the non-physical - if it even matters -
--enjoying silliness
--honesty
--thoughtfulness
--making eye contact
--hugs

Allan / May 23, 2007 4:09 PM

Moody,

But I am shy and sensitive. Just consider, if you will, that the Allan of GB fame is merely a clever construct, dawned by a painfully shy, emotionally vulnerable and androgynously beautiful, yet masculine man child poet. If you can consider this, then perhaps you would be closer to the truth than you might believe. Now I must wonder. How does a woman asses the quality of ones own ass?

Bill V / May 23, 2007 4:17 PM

Good topic! The answer for me is many of the above including Sun Dresses!, Bacon, the Wind, a girl with great music tastes that's not afraid to try new things, nice legs, ass, soft neck, a really good beer, and a smoke-free concert!

Judy / May 23, 2007 4:26 PM

Mikey / May 23, 2007 4:51 PM

I can't help but wonder how many female Gapersblockers will be inclined to run out and shop for sun dresses after reading this thread (assuming they don't already own any)...

Or for that matter, how many of the guys will be searching the internet tonight for exercises that develop the "boy muscle"...

I know I will...

what else...oh yeah, when the guy really gets into it and spanks me. Not very hard. Or when he gets turned on and holds me reeeaaallly close to him.
and yeah, that area you guys are calling the boy muscle. hmmm.

I don't like loud people.

Mikey / May 23, 2007 7:12 PM

...and I'll also give a nod to skafiend and second redheads, as well as accents (Southern is good, but European is even better).

Also, I would like to know what the male equivalent to the sun dress would be. Ladies?

Judy / May 24, 2007 9:34 AM

male equivalent to the sun dress?

Personally, I like the jeans and a white t-shirt with a wrench in one hand and a mischievious smile on the face.
Rugged, humorous, sexy and sensual.

skafiend / May 24, 2007 10:48 AM

What is it with this sun dress fetish? No, no, no, no... OK, perhaps they permit for easy access when the, um, need suddenly arises, or maybe a little glimpse if the sun and the person wearing them are in the proper coordinates. Maybe that's what guys are reacting to when they see them. And I'm sure they're comfortable for women. But as far as flattering the female form? Forget it. It's a straight up and down dress. Blah. Give me jeans, jean shorts, a littlle black dress. hell, even sweat pants. Give me a t-shirt, a Nike jogging top... give me somthing that fits the form and lets you show what your momma gave ya. I wanna get a good idea of what's doing. Sundresses are for little girls at a picnic with their families.

Oh, and women that make the first move on a man is a GIMONGOUS turn on.

peanut / May 24, 2007 10:57 AM

shaved heads and strong hands. stand-offish stoicism, biting sarcasm and bone dry humor BUT being an absolute prince at the same time.

knowing stuff about stuff. spontaneous dancing/wiggling.

the male equivalent to the sundress is probably the mesh half-shirt, summer-comfort-wise. sexy-wise, not so much...

Allan / May 24, 2007 11:04 AM

I am looking for sexy-wise so I can go shopping.

moody / May 24, 2007 11:37 AM

The male equivalent of the sundress…hmm…for me it would be tight dark blue jeans and an equally tight black t-shirt for starters.

loadzone / May 24, 2007 11:40 AM

women making the first move used to be a huge turn on to me until I met a total psycho.

otherwise i'm a fan of a nice set of gams, tennis players, and women who smile back (and the sundress, of course)

wow, i sound like a pig.

spook / May 24, 2007 11:45 AM

Yea Ska, the sun dress reminds me of “town and country”, but a pair of Frye harness boots would mos def put sexy back into play for a sundress wearer, yea women who rock Frye harness boots…… gurrrrrrrr!

Oh and women who rock those, visible- thigh high sockie things!

Moody:

how can you mention the
"androgynously beautiful, yet masculine" part and leave out the “man child poet.” Part!

Yea Allan, keep it going, cause.......

You belong to this thread!
It's in your moves
it's in your blood
You're the androgynously beautiful, yet masculine man child poet of the Gaper Streets

Allan / May 24, 2007 12:09 PM

I am with my boys Ska and Spook. What's the deal with the sun dress anyway? Is it a sun or a dress? If you wear pants in the sun do they become sun pants? What's next sun hats! Outrageous. After all what is a sun dress other than yet another unneeded euphemism for a moo-moo, and ther is nothing sexy about moo moos. Am I right people.

Olive / May 24, 2007 12:57 PM

A sundress could be very form-fitting and sexy in a more laidback kind of a way (summer dresses in a J. Crew catalog for example)vs. the black mini-skirt and fishnet stockings sexy in a va-va voom kind of way.

A boy who is kind and has a dry sense of humor.

Lean, athletic legs

Knows how to carry on an intellectually stimulating convos about literature and philosophy and the purpose of life in spiritual terms.

Olive.... "very form fitting"? and it's still a sun dress? i thought that was the exact opposite of the purpose of a sundress?

*obscure old TV variety show reference.

Olive / May 24, 2007 1:39 PM

skafiend,

Okay, not "very" form-fitting, but there are numerous incarnations and versions of sun dresses. I am not talking about miu-mius. I am talking about strapless, sleeveless, cut nicely to bring out the your curves, not skin-tight. Not clingy, but figure-flattering. Go online and go to outdoor summer weddings and you will know what I am talking about. Or, I could be totally way off because I more on the modest side.

Look at these dresses. I could see why a lot of the guys mentioned sun dresses - of course this is enveloped in the whole summer dress category

The 1930-1940’s female French spy look.

Black skirt, black knee high boots, black thigh high stockings, red turtle neck with a black blazer.

The hat could be a couple different looks, and glasses are hot…both sun and real.

More of a Fall look…oh-la-la!

OK, those were "nice" dresses. But when I think turn on, I don't think "nice". Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't give the bum's rush to a woman because she's wearing, But the dressing on the link you gave makes me wonder even more why guys are going batshit over them. Nice dresses, but ...eh.

Oh, did I mention I have absolutely no fashion sense?

sorry for turning this board into a Bravo channel show...

i believe it's "muu-muu," a tent-like housedressish garment, unlike the flirty, short, bareshouldered sundress. not to be confused with a caftan or sari.
where's bea arthur when we need her? she could drop science on this muu-muu talk.

Allan / May 24, 2007 2:18 PM

I think all the guys that are into the sun dresses like the idea of porking something that looks like a flower. The "turn on" comes from the fantasy of soiling something innocent and pretty.

sense of humor.
humility.
becoming more attractive after you start talking.
athletic but not hyper competitive.
skiers.
lacrosse players.
backrubs.
tingley kisses.

Come on yall. All this talk of sundresses got you looking at a Banna Repubic book (via second party) online! Have ya lost yer minds! Screw the sun dresses give me the frye boots, vintage clothing, and the thorns.

In what terms would you explain your fart fetish then?

Allan / May 24, 2007 3:00 PM

I don't have a fart fetish. I have never asked a girl to fart on me or even in my vicinity but on the occasion that it has occurred I found it very arousing but if I had to guess as to why it was arousing I think it would have to be that the smell of farts reminds me of my mother.

An old man farted in the train this morning and it smelled like a dirty rotting diaper. Allan would've loved it. Yet, oddly enough, Spook came to mind.

I like the pilar dress in white.

I h-a-t-e it when guys wear tight clothes. that's a turn off.

If I went to a GB event, I would never admit I am me. I'd say I was someone else.

Allan / May 24, 2007 3:32 PM

I actually don't care for man farts.

Tobermory / May 24, 2007 3:59 PM

The smell of fresh sawdust or a freshly mowed lawn.

Warm sunlight filtered through the leaves in a cool forest.

The flecks of green in my husband's brown eyes.

Soccer shorts.

Fluffy:

Do you hate it when guys wear tight clothes because you wear wear moo moos to hide all that junk in the elbows, chin, stomach, thighs, ankles, arms, neck, face, waist, fingers, and trunk?

damen / May 24, 2007 4:39 PM

ankles
postcards
shoulder blades
chanteuses
pencil nibbles
the smell of a new book
earlobes
appetite
thunderstorms
auburn
the small of the back
quick-witted exchanges
cellos/cellists
soft, smooth, cold hands
a woman reading in bed
coy eyes behind glasses
laughter
spooning
the first snow of the year
the first few seconds of feedback after an E chord rings out
mysteries and intrigue
surprises

carrie / May 24, 2007 5:12 PM

guys who wear tight clothes are ick. Nicely fitting clothes are best. whenever I see a guy in tight shirts or jeans I giggle to myself and imagine him saying "'scuse me, which way is the gym??"

(don't be mean to fluffy)

fluffy / May 24, 2007 5:19 PM

Spook:

be nice or I'll smack the ugly right off your face with my third chin!

PMan / May 24, 2007 6:08 PM

1. One more vote for sundresses
2. Those black running pants
3. Dangly, but not too big, earrings
4. Ponytails

Chicken on Toast / May 24, 2007 6:28 PM

As a profoundly unattractive man, I haven't even bothered to think about what turns me on - it's not like anything is going to come of it.
