Pretty Lips on Men – What Makes Them Kissable?

We don’t pay a lot of attention to guy’s mouths — except for what they’re doing with them.

Heroines have to have the perfect cupid bow and full pillow-like, bee-stung lips, because the pouty look is sexy, and if she can get her bottom lip to quiver ever-so-slightly at the same time, she can bring whole roomfuls of men to her knees (bitch!).

But we don’t talk about the shape and texture and fullness of men’s lips very much.

eric-stoltzstoltz-300x170One of my favourite actors in the world, hanging in there in the top ten for about three decades now, is Eric Stoltz.  We were in a retro (and sentimental) mood last night and watched Some Kind of Wonderful.  Besides, I love the drum solo opening.   I found myself watching Stoltz…and watching his lips, which is very odd, because they’re not full, or classically defined, nor do they fit any of the criteria that you would think should be applied to be considered sexy.

Yet they’re very interesting, all the same.  The cleft chin, cheekbones and that jawline definitely helps.

So I went through some of my collection:

Now, don’t spoil things for yourself by looking ahead to get the answer!

Consider this mouth:

ab1lipsIt’s not wide.

It’s not super-full, although the bottom lip is certainly interesting.

The top lip is not exactly symmetrical, and beauty experts say that symmetry is essential.

Yet this man is considered incredibly sexy.

Who is it?

Antonio Banderas.

Despite a small scar and a lack of symmetry, he clearly has no problems with his lips. 🙂

The bottom lip is…well, perfect.  Something to sigh over.

Who?

There’s no denying he’s hotter than hell, so is a full lip a necessary requisite for both sexes?

Let’s see:

oflipsNow here’s a full bottom lip to make you weep.

Or to make you want to lick it.

And look at that bow in the top lip!

Doesn’t this guy have just about the text-book perfect mouth?

It even looks broody.  Mmmm…

So who is it?  Who?

oded_fehr_011Oded Fehr.

If the name alone doesn’t tell you who he is, imagine him with cheek tattooes.
He played Ardeth Bay in The Mummy and The Mummy II, and had long hair and a turban.

Oded Fehr has never hit any “most sexy” lists that I know of, but two years ago,
a Pulse Pause post I put upon my site about him got so much traffic, my web host
shut down my site for hogging resources, forcing me to find another host.
The post continued to get ridiculous amounts of residual traffic until I
took down my blog a year ago.
Fehr has fans — real fanatics.

Not hard to see why.  But harder to understand why he hasn’t hit the mainstream in a big way.

He’s very pretty.  Lips and all.

But is it really just a perfect set of sexy lips that makes a man’s face?

Consider these lips:

.

gclipsThey’re so assymetrical, they’re skewed.

They’re thin — both of them.

There’s no bow, and no other redeeming “sexy” criteria about them at all,
except for perhaps that cheeky little quirk in the corner, there.

Any guesses?

clooney3George Clooney.

He’s been voted The Sexiest Man Alive,  and hit so many Top Sexy lists
it’s a waste of time trying to list them all.

Which just goes to prove that all the criteria for a sexy pair of lips are just guidelines,
and while a pair of lips might be sexy, for a man, it’s the whole package that counts.

And

It’s what he does with his lips.

Smiling

Talking

Nibbling

Kissing.

Ah…
