4 signs you'll have sex soon

07 November 2014, 09:11

Abuja - Your eyes meet across the room...bam, instant attraction! But is the feeling mutual, should you make your move? Don’t fear, the object of your affection might be sending you secret clues. Here's how to interpret the signs.

Body talk
You’ve heard the saying "first impressions last long". It takes about four minutes for someone to decide whether they’re into you or not. According to author Tracey Cox, 55% of the impression we make on other people depends on our body language, 38% from the tone, speed and inflection of our voice and only 7% from what we are actually saying. 

Make a lasting impression by letting your body do the talking. Confidence is an attractive thing and is often expressed by large body gestures, such as putting your hands behind your head, standing with your feet apart and using your hands when you talk.

Scent of attraction
Have you heard about pheromones? They are secreted by glands in the skin to trigger sensations of attraction and excitement. The chemicals you naturally give off indicate whether you’re a good candidate for producing offspring or not.

According to researchers from Rice University all socio-emotional meanings, including sexual ones, are conveyed in human sweat. The study looked at how brains of female volunteers processed and encoded the smell of sexual sweat from men. It found that several parts of the brain are involved in processing the emotional value of what the smelt. 

But just like beauty, smell is in the eyes (or, in this case, nose) of the beholder. Another study found that the male sweat chemicals – androstenone and androstadienone illicit passion in some women. 

The gaze of lust
Eye contact is a very powerful tool. Catching someone’s eye is often the first step to making a lasting impression. 

A study found that people of the opposite sex who exchanged a mutual gaze for two minutes reported increased feelings of attraction for each other. 

So when you walk past someone in the street and you catch their eye, don't turn around as you walk past each other. It makes you look a little desperate. Make eye contact, look down, and then turn around. Chances are the person might do the same.

A rush of blood
Do your cheeks burn up when you look at or talk to someone you like? Blushing is a clear indication that you’re interested. It also indicates sexual arousal.

A study found that people who blush are more generous and trustworthy that those who don’t. Researchers also found that blushers make better romantic partners because those who are easily embarrassed reported higher levels of faithfulness.
