“You know a rebel when you see one. And so does she. In a recent Australian study, researchers discovered that men who ignore rules are more desirable to women.”
“Nonconformity suggests qualities that women typically find attractive, like risk taking and assertiveness,” notes study author Matthew Hornsey, Ph.D. “It communicates authenticity, which in an image-obsessed world has become a rare and valuable commodity.”
Translation: Faking it won’t work. So read on to tap into your true rebellious side. More S3x, hotter S3x, so-adventurous-it’s-barely-legal S3x awaits.
Make Her Look
Walk into any bar on a Friday night, and you’ll swim in a sea of gingham.
Guys can be risk-averse: “We’re pack animals—we’re programmed to play it safe and follow the crowd,” Hornsey says. “But part of being an adult is knowing when to fit in and when to stand out.”
So rather than blend in with the rest of your wolf pack, reach into your closet for a look that’ll turn you into the alpha dog.
Add one edgy item to every outfit.
For instance, start with a black blazer and a white T-shirt, says Men’s Health fashion director Sandra Nygaard, and pair them with slightly distressed jeans to create contrast and interest.
Other ways to apply this principle: Trade a wristwatch for a leather cuff. Mix a leather jacket with a dressy shirt. Pair boots with a suit, sneakerswith dress pants, or dress brogues with jeans. And switch out yourcologne for something with a more earthy scent, such as patchouli.
