Lacy lingerie isn’t the only way to get him hot. We ask women worldwide for their turn-on tricks.
FEEL HIM UP
“Mexican men are highly visual creatures and they all have a soft spot for curvaceous women. That’s why Mexican women love figure-hugging dresses and bum-shaping jeans. Red pouty lips, beautifully curled eyelashes and luscious hair are also in our toolbox of seduction techniques. But our most widely used technique is the use of touch – to attract and arouse. I love stroking his lap or brushing his hair to get him in the mood.” – Diana, from Mexico
HOLD HIS GAZE
“The easiest way to seduce an Indian man, or soothe a bad-tempered one, is to cook him his favourite meal. Also, the saying, ‘The eyes are the windows to the soul’ is especially true in India. That’s why I make sure I doll up my eyes with eyeliner and mascara before heading out. I’m sure you’ve seen enough Bollywood movies to know that Indian women have mastered the art of an alluring smile, coupled with the intense stare of beautifully made-up eyes – it works more wonders than any cheesy chat-up line.” – Divya, from India
SEDUCE WITH SHAKIRA MOVES
“It all starts on the dance floor. Spanish men love women who know how to move their bodies, especially their hips. So I would dance sensually like Shakira to seduce my man. Behind closed doors, Spanish women are hot-blooded and generous lovers – that’s our secret to win men over. Once, my man and I got so passionate we broke the bed and ended up on the floor. But we didn’t stop! If you can show that fire in you, every man will be on his knees.” – Maria, from Spain
SEX IT UP AND SAY “CHEESE”!
“Men are visual creatures. Taking photographs of myself in seductive poses – with my G-string peeking through or blowing him an air-kiss – never fails to turn my man on. It’s also an adventurous reminder that you still have the hots for each other. American women do this often during special occasions, such as birthdays or wedding anniversaries. It really brings back the oomph in the bedroom.” – Nwando, from USA
“TAIR” YOUR MAN
“Women in my city are modern, independent and career-minded. When it comes to relationships, we’re in control right from the beginning – from asking the man out to deciding on the frequency of the dates. But behind closed doors, Chinese men are attracted to women who are gentle and ladylike. So our secret to making their knees go weak is the art of ‘tair-ing’. We pout, throw little tantrums and act coy for his attention. Sometimes, we will even refuse to talk to our men unless we get our way. That works because men love seeing the softer side of a woman. It also makes them feel more masculine.” – Wei Ping, from China
COCONUT BODY OIL DOES THE TRICK
“Nothing sets an Australian man’s heart racing faster than a tanned body in the tiniest bikini – we’re a bunch of beach-loving merry-makers after all. But it takes time to get that sun-kissed bod, so I head to the spray tan studio to ‘colour up’ before hitting the beach. My secret weapon is coconut body oil. Whether it’s a weekend barbecue or a night out at the clubs, I’ve learnt that men are charmed by a woman who smells like she’s just walked out of a Cafe Del Mar TV commercial. The key is not to overdo it. Just slather a little on your limbs to give them that healthy, magical sheen. That will lead him straight to your bedroom!” – Sarah, from Australia
