WAVE went around asking women and men of Kathmandu what they desire in the opposite sex and what turns them on. We were worried men would only talk about breasts and curves, but while physical beauty is still their top priority, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that some of our men also desire intelligent, witty partners with strong personalities.
The women surprised us as well. They seem to have abandoned their quest for 'tall dark and handsome prince' and settled for well groomed men with a good sense of personal hygiene, who are knowledgeable and who don't take themselves too seriously. The women we talked to were also extremely candid and told us openly that 'size' and 'hot booty' matters as much to them as it does for the boys.
We are still a long way from gender equality, but at least we are starting to see eye to eye when it comes to 'sexiness'.
Sanjay SI am a breasts man. I love how they feel when I touch or lay my head on them; soft and snuggly. Women with foreign accents, preferably a South American accent, turn me on. I probably wouldn't understand a word she said but I could listen to her all night long.
"Intellect and mad wits. Nice curves, of course, are a bonus but by no means, mandatory. "
Intelligence and the ability to hold a conversation. I don't know why some women think it's sexy to act dumb- THAT is what is DUMB!
You mean besides breasts…umm… longer (ummmmm)… Breasts it is.
Passionate women- about anything! And she should be sporty and like the outdoors. And witty- intelligence and sense of humour is very sexy in a woman.
I find women with curves very sexy. Nice, soft and rounded with some flesh that I can grab and hold on to… that's very womanly.
A nice big smile that crinkles the eyes and girls that are tall are the sexiest.
I find it very sexy when my girl slips her hand into mine as we are crossing the road… it makes me feel powerful and protective of her.
Long Hair! I love it when a girl opens her ponytail and shakes her hair out and it just falls all wild and tumbly down her neck and back, there is nothing quite as sexy as that.
I like women who tell me what it is that they want… ranging from birthday gifts to ordering a meal at a restaurant or while making love. Immature women who don't know their minds yet expect me to read their minds irritate me.
Lina M"What first attract me to a man are his broad shoulders and height. Since I tower above most Nepali women, a man has to be taller than me. He has to breathe confidence. Also, there is nothing sexier than a man who is witty and can make me laugh. Oh and the "size"."
"I think I speak for the rest of the girls that we all want a bad boy; someone whom we can tame but idealistically, I usually go for someone with a nice smile. I don't ask for much but he has to be intelligent. Not "Ivy League educated" intelligent but he has to hold his own if there ever is a debate between us."
1. Men who don't take themselves seriously
2. There's something cute about a man who can't dance.
3. A shapely nose
4. Well groomed hair
5. Men who take care of their personal hygiene
My ideal sexy man has to have long hair, big eyebrows and sharp facial features. And a man who can crack jokes on just about anything.
"He can either sing, play the guitar or the drums but he needs to be musically inclined. He should also be a nice person. Good looks is just a bonus."
The ass! Perfectly placed, not too high nor too low, can perfectly cup them in my hands, rounded and tight! Very, very few men have nice asses and it's such a pleasure espying one that is just right.
Lean athletic body with intelligence to match and if he can write… that's just the icing on the cake!
I like big hands. Hands that make mine feel small and protected when he is holding me, also I like it when the hands aren't all soft and squishy and perfectly manicured like a girls, but strong yet gentle.
At first sight, a nice smile always makes me weak in the knees and as night falls and clothes come off, I can stare, lick and a man's pelvic cut lines. Also I love me a musician. I don't care if he is moody like Bob Dylan as long he plays the guitar and sings. And ooohh. A man who knows his way around a woman's body.
A good kisser, one who doesn't slobber drool all over my face but his kisses aren't dry either. He gently nibbles and bites and teases my mouth open instead of shoving his tongue down my throat… a kisser like that you keep for life.
