How to build your sex appeal

16 September 2014, 18:55 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Inside beauty is all good and great for promoting self-confidence, but the person you date or want to date is not going to ask for your X-Ray, and before someone talks to you, how you look on the outside will go a long way in either encouraging or discourage them from talking to you.

There’s a difference between sex appeal and being trashy, so how do you build on yours?

Have an awesome body

I am not talking about societal standards of being a certain dress size, but just being fit enough to climb the stairs and not break a sweat when not taking the elevator. This boosts your self-confidence by a long shot. Do not look unhealthy.

Talking of Sweat…Body Odour

Avoid having body odour, especially you ladies, invest in good fragrance but also take a shower. Do not bathe in perfume yet you have not properly showered. You can pick a signature fragrance that works for you. Something light, intense and sexy. Do not pick something that is heavy and chokes people as you walk past.

Your pheromones accompanied by your fragrance can have a positive intense effect on people of the opposite sex as long as it is properly used. General Hygiene is a must.

Dress well and appropriately

This is where trashy comes in. Too tight, revealing clothing. Dress in clothes that fit and complement your body. The right make-up and hair goes along way too.


How you carry yourself around people goes a long way in making them want to approach you. I will avoid that woman who is busy spitting on the side of the road, the one picking her nose with a finger in public, the one sitting with her legs spread in a skirt and the one chewing and talking at the same time.

Learn how to handle yourself like a lady and not like a sack of potatoes. Read a book on it if it helps. Be graceful in the way you walk and talk.

After you package the outside, a couple of things to move things a long;


Learn to look at people when talking to them and maintaining it, do not avoid. Do not over-flatter your eyelashes or do deep stares that end up being queer. If it is someone you like, stare deeply as well as intensely into their eyes and be relaxed as well as confident as you do it. Do not overdo it though, you do not want them to feel uncomfortable.

Having a positive attitude about yourself and what you do, boosts your self-esteem. If you walk around feeling like a lost cause on mankind, you end up looking like one too.


People connect better with someone who is comfortable in their surroundings as well as what they are doing. It also makes them comfortable enough to interact with you. It may be your first time meeting some CEO, but deal with the skittishness and keep it out of sight. Look like it is your daily business.Otherwise you will look out of your league and you cannot afford that if you want to have unbeatable sex appeal.
