Do women get sexually stimulated visually in any way ?

It's well known that men are stimulated visually, but is this true of women in any manner ?

Sexual stimulation comes in many forms, but the general (un-official) consensis is that women are stimulated in other ways rather than visual, i.e. men see a woman in lingerie, or a picture of a nude woman, etc., they become aroused. My question is do women (or some women) become aroused in similar manners, because most people will tell you that it takes other things to stimulate a woman, and that most women refuse to look at such things, and care not about what a man wears (sexy underware, etc.) to bed for romance. I realize that romance is many other things than pics and lingerie, but at a given point are women aroused by visual images or lingerie ? I'm trying to get the answer right from the horses mouth, so to speak . I believe that a question about women would best be answered by women. In all honesty I'm asking this question because my girlfriend and I have a great relationship and have for years now, and I like to do things for her that she may enjoy without asking her. "A surprise", and if I'm not sure of how to go about it I'll ask other women for their opinion or advise, which is why I asked this question. We love to please each other by doing things that the other likes, be it sexual or otherwise, which is why we have such a good relationship.

Who would say always? Good legs on a girl really turn me on. Boobs not so much. A good nose on a guy gives me a little butterfly type feeling. Pictures of people do nothing, though. Like, a tanned chest with a six pack... it's like: And? I need to see how someone moves.

There is a certain type of man that appeals to me. At this age, I think of more than outside appearances. I love a take charge kind of man. I like an intelligent, common sense man, not necessarily a book learned man. A man can be a "rounded fellow", if he's a take charge man. A man that is sensitive, considerate, respectful. A man that will show the woman he loves, in front of his friends, his sincere appreciation of her. I love an honest, loyal man. Behind doors, I like the lustful look in a man's eyes. With the right man, just looking at him across a room arouses me....he doesn't have to do anything special.

A man can be handsome on the outside, flaunt himself physically, but ugly on the inside. I don't like rounders. I like a confident man.

You and your loved one sound like a happy couple.....my advice to you is....just be you. Remember for a woman, foreplay starts outside the bedroom.

Why do you think you can make a blanket generalization for all women?

I'd say depends on the visual stimulus. I've heard that women get attracted to guys' "cute butts" or "sexy" briefs more than they would the more ordinary kind. I'd say it takes both kinds of stimulus, visual and others.

Yes... um, sometimes, I guess. It's just different, I suppose. Different women are different. Some women seem to get stimulated by pron, some don't. Men get stimulated by different things too.

I don't like a man that travels from woman to woman, using them for sexual favors. This shows a lack of character. I like a man that enjoys sex, but also sees beyond sex...seeing a strong martial relationship as important. I like a family man with soul.

I don't know who these people are who are telling you these things, but they're full of crap. Of course women are visually stimulated by things they find sexually appealing. It differs from woman to woman what those things are, though. You have to find out what in particular will turn your SO on. But there's definitely something that will.

Depends.

I mean this with the greatest respect (and this is the opinion of only myself) - but unless you look equal to or better than Brad Pitt (in Meet Joe Black) - there is a very good chance you're girlfriend won't feel stimulated by a vision of you acting out a surprise for her.

In my experience, visual stimulation can play a small part in the overall feeling, but it's a hard thing for a man to do right, and as such should be avoided, whilst other, more popular techniques are utilised.

Good luck though, (and I think you're girlfriend is lucky to have a partner who gives thought to such things).

This is a very general question.
In the explanation, you said that people said that no woman is visually stimulated. Then you asked if all women are stimulated that way.
My answer: Women do get sexually stimulated with visionary things. Unless they are blind. If they are blind, their other senses are heighted.
There we go.

For me, initial attraction takes much more than looks, unless it's a 'look' (style) that tells me a lot about their personality (and most of the time, that doesn't happen)

As far as visual stimulation after being with someone, I'm not sure there are many guys who could... oh, what Cain said. About the only thing visually that I can think of is maybe a facial expression. Something in the eyes/smile.

I'm much more aroused by voice/sound and gentle touch.

Kcthedog, even though a woman may be aged, she still has the desires of a young woman, if not more so, if that's possible. Kcthedog, see what you have to look forward to as you age...your woman will want to have her way with you well into her years. smile Sorry, if I've been a little too blunt.

If they didn't, what's the point of a six-pack. Still, your best "surprise" is, I think, a smile, a hug and a listening ear. That's for starters. If you're in a good relationship, you already know what to do.

I think it depends on what it is and what kind of environment the visual is in.

Here's the deal. We get aroused if we think your doing it, not for us, but because you like it. So don't strut the sexy boxers and then try to jump her bones. Keep the intention out-of-radar. Just let her notice that you've been buying nicer garments and working out. Get out of the shower, put on a little lotion on- (without a fragrance) and let her watch you do it. But don't make it obvious that you want her to see you.- just keep the bathroom door open. Those visuals will probably work. Trust me.

Not nearly as often as males! males are driven by visual stimuli! Lingerie, Makeup, Colors of Eyes, Hair, Nail Polish etc. Short Skirts, Legs, Behinds, BREASTS! Feet! Women are prone to Smell and to cuddling etc. As for attraction to males by females, it is grooming, stability (Wealth) (Automobile) and Maturity as in manners etc. But physical condition and male endowment are major contributors!

So what you personaly are telling me is this..... if he has money , a nice car, and a big dick ,you find that the attractiveness and consider it the important qualities ? Sounds very materialistic and shallow to me. Just for the record. I'm a successful booking agent, I own a 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, A 2008 ZO-6 Corvette. and a 2008 BMW 735. I'm considered good looking and have never had any complaints in the sex category in my life, but I would never get involved with someone like yourself. You have a lot to learn about what really counts, if you ever learn at all. Your type never does. The name for your type in two words..... GOLD DIGGER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!, but let us not leave out,,,,, leach, parasite, stepford wife, and many others too long to list here, not to mention paranoid and dilusional, (check out the profile) Guys,,,,,,,, stay away from this one !!!!!!!!!

AAH yes.... a breath of fresh air named honesty, and openness. It's a closed mind that enjoys nothing and belittles everything. I too feel that both sexes are stimulated visually. It's just the start, but if you are alive and warm blooded, then enjoying a sexy vision is just human, be it male or female, and if you try to say that it's not, then I think you are a sad case with a closed mind and a cold heart. Thank you Enheduanna. There are so few women like you in the world !!!!!!!

I think there are probably plenty of women who would say that they can be visually stimulated. But I agree with you that close-mindedness and narrow stereotypes are dangerous.

No Idea what stimulates women. For me the area between the navel and the knees is a turn on, the back and especially the front. That little dimple that most women have at the very top of thier naughty bit down there drives me wild. The bigger the dimple the more stimulating it is.

People, you are missing the point! Of course, women get aroused, visually. That's why we all wear clothes! Women's reactions are totally conservative and "ewww-"like despite their true pulses! They are likely to put you in jail, if you try visual stimulation. "Indecent exposure!" Even if she was craving it!

The question is NOT about that. The question means, would a woman act on those pulses, positively (i.e. Seek any sort of sexual activity with source of arousal!) Again, 95%+, NEGATIVE!

I'm here to tell you, NNNOOOOOO!!! Otherwise, you'd see men raped all over the place, no guys killing themselves to just get a smile, and pubs and all that garbage places would just disappear in a heartbeat!

Women are different physically, physiologically, mentally, emotionally, and purposely. It's the truth. Deal with it! They are highly attractive, highly sensitive, highly motivated to seek STABILITY. Why would she risk getting pregnant and risk her emotions being trampled-upon, and destroyed, just for a meat-cucumber, that's a dime-a-dozen? All a woman has to do is smile! 170000 gig guys will be lined up awaiting their turn!

The question is absurd! Guys, I'm sorry, but you have NO chance!..
