5 Ways to Feel Instantly Sexy AF


A new study of nearly 3,000 people published earlier this month in the International Journal of Psychology confirms that those who feel more attractive have more satisfying sex lives, better self-esteem in bed, and more sex overall. Duh, right?

Though it's just common sense that when you feel attractive, you’re more likely to let loose in bed and enjoy yourself, it's an especially important message for women to embrace, says clinical sexologist Noelle Pomeroy, Ph.D. “Anything that detracts from your feeling good about yourself in the moment can prevent you from really getting in the mood," says Pomeroy. And that's a total downer for your lady boner.

No doubt you feel like hot shit most of the time. But, occasionally, we all need a little ego boost. Experts say these tricks will make you feel confident and sexy ASAP, so you can bring your A-game to the bedroom whenever you feel like it.

Cover Up—Just a Little

Pomeroy recommends avoiding clothes that make you feel crappy, like that 50 Shades-themed lingerie that seemed like a good idea last year—and slipping into options that make you feel sexy.

You can do it in bed, too: If you're feeling self-conscious about your midsection, cover it up with a top that pushes up your boobs and covers your stomach. You don’t have to be completely naked or decked out in Agent Provocateur to feel good about your bad self. There's nothing wrong with popping on a cozy college T-shirt to get down—whatever makes you feel hot works.

Check Your Lighting

Opt for softer, super-flattering light by using a dimmer switch in your bathroom or lighting a few candles before you get dressed, says board-certified clinical sexologist Debra Laino. That soft glow will have you feeling things...sexy things.

Squeeze in a Workout

Sure, doing some pushups, planks, and squats will actually define your muscles, but spending a little time working out also releases endorphins that make you feel awesome about your smokin' bod and what it's capable of, says Laino. Is it getting hot in here, or is it just (literally) you?

Wear Sexy Lingerie—Even When Sex Is Off the Table

Put on something lacy and matching under your work clothes, and you’ll be surprised how awesome you'll feel, even though no one can see your insanely hot ensemble, says Laino.

And if you happen be rescued by a sexy fireman or just want to have sex later, you’re already dressed for the occasion. Boom.

Give Your Skin Some TLC

Odds are, you probably just slap on some body lotion post-shower and get on with your day. But Laino says you’re missing an opportunity to bond with your body and appreciate what you’ve got. She recommends taking your time and slooowly massaging the lotion into your curves. “Taking your time to rub moisturizer all over is sensuous,” she says. “It allows a woman to get to know—and appreciate—her body.”
