non-sexual things women do that get men in the mood. But we’re not here for the hetero foreplay, are we?Luckily for us, someone else followed up with a similar question on the r/AskGayMen forum, asking, “What can a guy do that isn’t explicitly sexual that will immediately get you in the mood?”And commenters’ non-sexual turn-ons include skills that should be the bare minimum—eye contact and decent conversation, for example—to skills that are highly specialized—like using an angle grinder in an art studio.

Gets my back hairs standing on end every time.”“Be friendly and polite and expect nothing but the same.”“I was doing an at home workout with a gym bro friend and I started to struggle toward the end of my set, and he told me to push for two more, then one more, and as I was really pushing it to finish my last rep, he called me a good boy.”The term is so overused these days!“Showing off chest hair… like a button-down with a few buttons undone.”“A faint smell will make me swoon, whether it’s cologne or pits.
