Unless you’re in the porn industry, you’d probably prefer not to get hot and bothered at work. And if you happen to feel a persistent tingle between the thighs while sitting at your desk, it’s likely thanks to Starbucks triggering the urge to haul ass to the ladies’. Sure, you may find one or two (or more) colleagues attractive. But you probably want to wait till you’re home to even acknowledge—let alone indulge—those thoughts, right?
Then again, maybe not. Some women find that because they spend the majority of their days at work, it’s just second nature to get turned on by random things while they’re on the job. “Otherwise, when the hell else am I supposed get the feels? At 2 a.m. when I’m sleeping?” asked one woman I interviewed.
Here, 9 women share what’s gotten their pulses racing at their place of business.
1. Casual Fridays
“Believe it or not, men’s legs are huge turn-on for me. So, on casual Fridays, when they’re allowed to wear shorts, I can’t stop thinking about half the guys in my office in a sexual way!” -Charissa, 34
2. Big hands
“I’m one of a few females at the construction company I work for. Clearly, there’s many a fantasy to be had from that one statement alone. But I tell you, nothing does it for me like a man with big hands.” -Chelsey, 29
3. Going down?
“It seems funny when I say this out loud, but I get really turned on when I’m in an elevator with a colleague. (It helps if he’s also cute, but def not a requisite.) There’s just something about the fantasy of the doors closing, us looking at one another and then fiercely going at it.” -Gina, 27
4. Bring your child to work day
“Look, I’d never take a husband away from his family. That’s just not me. But when it’s bring your child to work day, and I see these men being incredible daddies to their little ones, it’s a huge turn on!” -Harriet, 29
5. Driving stick
“I work at a car dealership, and it really turns me on when the salespeople (or mechanics) drive around a car with a manual transmission.” -Katie, 25
6. Occupational hazard
“As a dentist, there’s something about a stud sitting in my chair all helpless with his mouth open just waiting for me to dig in. OPEN WIDE…” – Samantha, 34
7. At your service
“I’m a nanny for a pretty wealthy family. They also have an au pair, a housekeeper, and a butler on staff. Whenever the butler ‘serves’ the family, it really turns me on. I keep picturing him knocking on my door late at night and asking me if I want some of his Vienna sausage.” -Tracey, 24
8. A bookworm
“As an adjunct professor, nothing turns me on more than a colleague (or of-age student) who sports a pair of reading glasses and can always be found nose-deep in a book.” -Sally, 33
9. A certain kind of delivery
“Is it weird that accents turn me on? Probably. In my line of work, I come across so many different accents in a day and every time I hear a different one, I get the heebeegeebees. I want these men all over me. Like, at the same time.” -Crystal, 26
