It's summer: Get active AND turn a guy on. Two birds with one stone, ladies.
There's nothing sexier than a woman who knows what she's doing, whether it's in a relationship, in bed or with a set of oil paints. Love is so much more than, well, love: It's about sharing common interests, and enjoying activities — hobbies — both together and apart. That's why we're overjoyed that it's Get A Hobby Week over at The Frisky. They have a handy "What Hobby Should I Pick Up?" flow chart, a list of 13 unexpected celebrity hobbies, an approval matrix of sexy vs. unsexy hobbies for dudes, and more. We are oh-so-on-board with all this hobby-horsing, but we couldn't help but wonder: Could we top their 10 Hobbies Guaranteed To Make Any Woman Sexier list? I mean, we are the love and sex people; we should know a thing or two. Well, I think we did. Here are the top 10 sexiest hobbies for women, straight from our staff:
1. "Belly dancing. Or any kind of dancing, really. A love of boogie means you're comfortable using your body to make yourself feel good, and what's sexier than that?" - Sarah
2. "Playing golf. It's unexpected, means she can hang with the boys and, let's face it, she'll look cuter in argyle than any of his buddies." - Rachel
3. "Needlepoint. Seems pretty relaxing, and who doesn't want a homemade scarf?" - Tom
4. "Hoop dancing. Aside from displaying your youthful exuberance, your ability to hoop dance with the best of them only highlights the fact that you have hips that won't quit (and don't lie). To add some extra sizzle (and some endorphin-boosting danger), upgrade to a fire hoop." - Steph (former YTer)
5. "Brewery-hopping. Wine tasting is a fabulous excuse for getting wasted in the afternoon. But when a lady's willing to take a brewery tour, it's something special. It broadcasts the message that she can hang with the guys (and perhaps even chug a whole growler's worth of top-notch beer)." - Steph
6. "Tailgates and pub crawls. A girl who's down for occasional day-drinking with friends is laid-back and fun — two traits that make anyone exponentially more appealing." - Krissy
7. "Stand-up comedy. She's funny and smart and doesn't get shaken if the crowd doesn't always like her. Self-assuredness and quick wit are so sexy it's not even funny." - Krissy
8. "Skeet shooting/hunting. Every man loves a woman who knows her way around a gun. Wink." - Lyz
9. "Learning a language. There's nothing sexier than being able to seduce a guy in English, French, and Italian. He may have no idea what you're saying, but it sounds incredible." - Faye
10. "Being a technology whiz. You don't have a 'Y' chromosome, but you can code with the best of 'em? Your blog is already running on HTML5? Super impressive, especially for the geekier of men. Bonus points for being a gamer girl, to boot." - Genevieve
