When you're out together in public, the things you can do to tease your partner increase tenfold*. It's like knowing he can't jump your bones without some kind of ramification makes even otherwise mundane things suddenly arousing.
*This is a figure I made up, so don't cite it in any academic papers. Frankly, I don't know what kind of academic paper would even consider citing this.
Stretching is sexy. I tried to look up why, but all the search results were just videos of women stretching and none of them seemed to be academic in nature, so I can't tell you why, but it's sexy.
2. Making eyes at him.
That probably sounds like something your grandpa would say, but that's because women have been "making eyes" since at least the time of your grandpa. Because it's tried and true. I bet "tried and true" is another thing your grandpa would say. I bet your grandpa says a lot of things.
3. Brushing up against him.
Any touch is sexy, butit's especially hot if you lead with your breasts. Sorry in advance.
4. Pulling something out of your bra.
Do you store your wallet or phone in there? He wishes he was your wallet or phone.
5. Putting on lipstick.
Lipstick is sexy, especially if he has a uh... oral fixation.
6. Playing footsies with him under the table.
Not so much just kicking around his foot, but sliding your foot up his leg will make him go nuts. Especially if you take your shoe off first. Again, I don't know why, but it's totally a "sex thing." Personally, I don't count it as a sex thing until you've got your foot in his junk. But for the sake of the other restaurant patrons, save that for later.
7. Walking up to the bar and order a really specific drink.
Whether it's the exact year of the wine you want or an extra dirty martini straight up, confidence and decisiveness gets our attention.
8. Wearing heels and shorts together.
Your legs have never looked better.
9. Talking openly about sex.
It almost doesn't matter what the specific topic is, but knowing that you're comfortable chatting openly about what you like and what you don't in bed is a plus.
Assuming you're not out line dancing, whatever you're doing is probably turning him on. Maybe even the line dancing, if that's his thing.
