THEY don’t always say it out loud – but men really do want women with sex appeal.
Bedroom chemistry is far more important than many men are willing to admit, a study has found.
In short, they are highly attracted to nice breasts and a cute backside.
Author and D&M Research managing director Derek Jones said the results suggested blokes felt stuck in a politically correct straitjacket that stopped them from speaking their minds.
“It may be they have matured through political correctness and have been socialised not to say everything they think,” Mr Jones said.
The What Men Really Want From Women report, to be presented at the Australian Market and Social Research Conference in Sydney today, found at the heart of men’s desire was a “good sort” who is loving and supportive, down to earth, with an attractive smile and eyes and an adventurous spirit.
But when put to a thorough attraction test, the power of sexual chemistry was also undeniable.
“What they actually also want is great boobs, a nice bum, a focus on fashion and similar interests,” Mr Jones said.
“It’s a matter of ‘come to the footy, or at least let me watch it’.”
He said men and women shared a need for honesty, trustworthiness, humour and friendship.
But blokes craved more sexual attraction, a down-to-earth nature and a feeling that they were supported, while women emphasised personal hygiene and the need for her man to get on with her family and friends.
Luke Lucas, 25, of East Malvern, said without sexual chemistry it was difficult for a relationship to develop.
“On the simplest level I think men want a woman who will make them feel like the man,” he said.
“Someone who will laugh at their jokes.
“And they want to feel like they’re needed.”
