Man Apartment

You meet someone intriguing (or at the very least eye-catching) at a party or a bar. You go on a couple of dates -- for a coffee, a beer, a movie, or maybe even a whole meal. After some thought, you decide that it's time ... to see his living quarters.

Going back to the apartment of a man you like can be daunting. You never really know what you'll find there: No toilet paper? Ten roommates with bunk beds? Too many photos of ex-girlfriends? A bag of his baby teeth under the bed? The possible turn-offs are endless -- as detailed by bloggers, women's magazines and television shows.

However, here at HuffPost Women we prefer to focus on the good stuff -- those things in his living space that make you more interested in him as soon as you walk in. Maybe it's a collection of vintage magazines (a curated collection -- we're not into hoarders), or a great piece of furniture he purchased someplace other than IKEA, or the fact that there is not a single dirty dish in his kitchen sink. Below you'll find a roundup of our biggest male apartment turn-ons (gleaned mostly from our friends and co-workers, who will remain nameless), but now we want to hear about yours!

Tell us what you want to see in a man's apartment by tweeting @HuffPostWomen using the hashtag #AptTurnOn. We'll feature your answers in our slideshow.

Loading Slideshow...
  • Photos Of Him & His Family

  • Good Books (And A Nice Bookshelf)

    "Nothing <em>too</em> pristine or organized, that means he's trying too hard to be intellectual when he's not."

  • A Big Bed (i.e. Not A Twin Bed)

    "His bed. If it's too small, I can't work with that." "Also, an actual bed (not just mattress) with actual sheets and an actual comforter. I wish that that could go without being said."

  • A Subscription To 'The New Yorker'

    "I really like a good <em>New Yorker</em>. Bonus points if it has his name on it indicating a subscription."

  • Mac Laptop And/Or iPad
