1. When you wrap them around him. Whether you're giving him a full-body hug or cuddling in bed or doing something else in bed (I'm talking about having sex), there's nothing like feeling your legs wrapped around his waist. It's sexy, it's adorable.
2. How smooth they are right after you shave. Guys over the age of 12 don't care if you have leg hair, but that feeling of a freshly shorn leg...there's nothing like it.
3. Lady calves. They're beautiful. We don't get the same definition and curves to our legs. Yours are like rolling hills made of skin, except less weird-sounding.
4. The way they lead up to—ahem—other things. They're like the highway to your crotch. We're into that too.
5. When they get bendy. Not everyone can do the splits like Jean-Claude Van Damme, but women are generally more flexible than men. Which is impressive, and also, under specific circumstances, sexy.
6. They look good in anything. Jeans. Yoga pants. Skirts. Nothing. Guys can barely pull off shorts. Women's legs win in the fashion department.
7. They're the most exposed erogenous zone. Unlike other parts of the body, your legs are sexy but they also get to run free. Unless you're Amish, in which case bare ankles are considered pornographic.
8. They're instrumental in most sex positions. Doggy-style, cowgirl, and countless others mean we get to constantly see and touch your legs.
9. The way they get tangled in ours when we're cuddling. It's not a real cuddle unless your legs are a jumble of knees and feet.
10. Two words: thick thighs. And thin ones. And regular ones. Female thighs are basically the most beautiful sex handles ever.
11. Getting to pull off your pantyhose and stockings. For you, it might just be another (annoying) layer of clothing, but for us, it's kind of exciting (except when your foot gets stuck in the end, and we have to stand up and really pull.)
12. The fact that they end in feet. Listen, not everyone is into feet, but a lot of guys are, and if that's the case, then it's great having legs go all the way down and turn into feet, which can be equally sexy to some.
13. When they have that muscle divot that runs down the side of your thigh. That muscle divot should be the new thigh gap. Thick thighs can have it and skinny thighs can have it; it just means you're strong and that's sexy as hell.
