Things That Will Make You Feel Sexy That Have Nothing To Do With Sex

By

Life can't be all banging and humping, unfortunately.

I know. Sad.

Sometimes, your sex life might be put on the back burner and you find yourself feeling a little bit down and out on yourself.

Sure, sure, if you feel like you're in a sexy slump, you can always go the ol' red lipstick and high heels, glass of red wine and "get a hold of yourself!" pep talk route.

BUT! There are a lot of sneaky, hidden ways to feel sexy that have nothing to do with attraction or the act of sex itself.

Taking care of ourselves and the relationships around us, for example, promote feelings of sexuality and sensuality, and are great ways to keep the mojo pumping.

Here are seven ways to feel sexy that have nothing to do with going to actual bone town.

Working out

This one might seem obvious, but it goes way beyond whatever physical changes you are looking for from fitness.

Getting the blood pumping boosts energy and reconnects you to your physical self, which provides an awesome trickle-down effect of good feels that culminate in all kinds of confidence and stamina.

Bonus: As you sweat you release pheromones, which are chemically designed to attract the opposite sex.

Hanging out with your girlfriends

Nothing makes me feel sexier than rolling with a pack of ferocious, gorgeous, goddesses. Girl power is real, and hanging out in a group allows you to feed off of one another's femininity and individual sensuality.

Next time you're feeling dull and dry, plan a girls night out to summon that sexy glow.

Taking your vitamins

Seriously. Taking care of your body is ALWAYS sexy, and ensuring it gets the nutrients it needs is a sure-fire way to make sure your physical health is at its best.

While vitamins are good for our insides, they do just as much for our outsides and can support things like the strength and quality of our hair, skin, nails and eyes.

Holding eye contact

Eye contact establishes confidence and demands respect. If you're ever feeling shaky in a conversation or nervous around a cutie pie at the bar, try holding their gaze.

This will trick your brain into feeling in control and give you a crazy mysterious factor. Plus, putting yourself in a powerful, authoritative position will make you feel like a goddess, queen and dominatrix.

Reading the news

Giphy

Our brains can be just as attractive, if not MORE attractive than our bodies.

Staying informed not only makes you a better contributor to society overall, but it also makes you a more interesting conversationalist. By staying informed, you're creating power within yourself, and nothing feels sexier than knowing your shit and having an opinion.

Keeping yourself woke and educated is sexy AF, people.

Being kind

Giphy

I don't know about you, but I feel my ugliest when I'm in a bad mood and acting like a shitty person. There really is something to the saying, "It's what's on the inside that counts."

If you are kind, loving and compassionate to those around you, you'll be able to keep your heart and mind positive and the scary, unattractive feelings at bay.

Catching up on sleep

Giphy

Nothing kills libido faster than exhaustion. Get that sleep, girl! Feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed will ensure you're "all systems go" when the time comes for the sexy beat to drop. (Literally in the club or metaphorically in your bedroom.)

Plus, spending time rolling around in the sheets like you are in a music video can never hurt anything, either. I know I feel FOINE AF when I blast Destiny's Child and dance on my pillows like I'm Beyoncé. Just saying.

Take care of your body, mind, spirit and watch the sexy times fly!
