15 Words That Are Maybe Even Better Than “Beautiful”

Love & Sex

Christina Hendricks’ advice for men in the May issue of Esquire is overflowing with juicy gems — hell, her argument that men should use the word “panties” more because it’s “sexy,” “girlie,” and “naughty” even won me over. (Just don’t try and bring back “moist,” Miss Holloway.) Another quote had me thinking that maybe she’d been reading The Frisky.

“There are better words than beautiful. Radiant, for instance. It’s an underused word. It’s a very special word. ‘You are radiant.’ Also, enchanting, smoldering, intoxicating, charming, fetching.”

Well, we all know how I feel about the word beautiful (yes, please, call me beautiful!), but I wouldn’t toss a man out of bed for calling me any of Hendricks’ suggestions either. Here are 15 other words to call a woman to make her heart go aflutter and her panties drop.

  1. Brilliant
  2. Hilarious
  3. Incredible
  4. Breathtaking
  5. Enigmatic
  6. Heart-stopping

  9. Fiery
