Want to turn her on? Head to Home Depot. Some surveys have shown that the way to a woman’s bed, er, heart is through her “honey-do” list. In fact, according to a recently conducted survey, 12 percent of women prefer their men to be good at do-it-yourself projects rather than skilled between the sheets!

Of course, most women want more than just a helping hand around the house. In speaking with women over the years, as well as looking at recent surveys, here are some of the top responses noted when women were asked what they were secretly looking for in their man:

Make Her Laugh. She may not want you to make her giggle in the bedroom, but in a healthy relationship, women love guys who can bring a smile to their face. In a Men’s Healthsurvey of more than 1,000 American women ages 21 to 54, 77 percent of women ranked a sense of humor as their number one must-have in a man, beating out intelligence, passion, confidence, and generosity.

Cook For More Sex. We’ve all heard, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Well, it turns out, the same may be true for women.  Men’s Health conducted a poll with 1,000 Cosmopolitan readers and found that 66 percent of women said they’re more likely to have sex with a man after a home-cooked meal. Something to consider, gentlemen…

Keep the Love Cave Tidy. You may not mind the dirty gym socks and week-old boxers scattered all over the floor, but she will. And not only does a messy house make you look bad, it also kills her desire to jump your bones. In fact, nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that having a clean room is crucial for setting the mood.  So, consider that the next time you maneuver her toward the bed only to trip over your clothes on the way.

Ditch the Razor. Many women think your 5 o’clock shadow is sexy, according to a study at Northumbria University. Researchers showed women 15 photos of men’s faces—altering each to display different degrees of hairiness—and then asked them to rate each photo on different traits like masculinity, aggression, attractiveness, and maturity. The winner: Light stubble was rated the most attractive.

Show Her Your Wild Side. a href="https://www.strongmarriagenow.com/woman-sexually-aroused/">Many women consider dominant or slightly rough sex to be a huge turn-on, says another recent study. But don’t go out and stock up on whips and chains. Instead, showing some maturity in the bedroom, some aggression in the sack – showing you are passionate about her —can be extremely sexy. Just make sure you’re communicating with your partner at all times!

Seduce Her With Your Scent. According to a study from the University of Liverpool, when women simply see a man apply a scent, they instantly consider him more attractive. And what’s more, the same study also found that men who use cologne come across as more confident than those who don’t. (Double bonus!)  So, shop around, see what she likes and enjoy the benefits.
