Authority figures, hard work, a nurturing nature, being physically fit- there seems to be a few common denominators when it comes to what men stereotypically find to be a sexy career for a woman to have. Besides these things though, a woman who has her own career and can live with or without you is of course appealing. Having her own hobbies in life, as well as a passion for something, is very sexy too.
Automatically, things like "Sexy Nurse" or "Sexy Flight Attendant" come to mind, but these are Halloween costumes; there is no real job prefaced by "Sexy" (that I know of, at least). But the sexy this-or-that Halloween costume craze is a good indicator of career stereotypes, if anything. It should be noted, however, that not every sexy job Halloween costume is actually a real job- for example, Cavewoman and Kitty Cat are not real jobs, sexy or otherwise.
But for those costumes that do have real-life counterparts, like the aforementioned nurse and flight attendant, Halloween costumes have little in common (if anything) with the real world versions. For example, a nurse wears scrubs, a la the sitcom Scrubs, which is closer to reality but still quite fictional. They do not wear skimpy skirts, fishnet stockings, heels, or heavy makeup. Likewise, flight attendants wear varying uniforms, but their slacks, jackets, blouses, and knee-length (at the shortest) skirts are nothing like the sleazy outfits that abound on the one night of the year it is not frowned upon to "ho it up-" October 31.
I have narrowed the vast numbers of different careers available to women to the 15 that I believe are the most stereotypically "sexy" to men. Keep reading to see what they are, including and beyond the obvious ones we all already know about.
Obviously models require one attribute: attractiveness. Well, technically they have to have other qualities like experience and training, especially for the runway or other specialized areas of the field. And usually, models are very tall and very thin. They do not have to be, but that is the stereotype, especially in the high fashion world. But models can model anything really, from footwear to jewelry to nail colors and more. Therefore they can look like anything, if you think about it. But since we are operating under the assumption that men find models sexy (duh), we will go with the notion that most of the time, models are tall and skinny. Hey, some guys like their women to tower over them and be a stick. To each their own!
12 Flight Attendant
This one is a no-brainer. It is one of the first jobs you think of when thinking of "sexy" careers. Flight attendants have long held a spot on lists like these, probably because of their uniforms, which have traditionally been thought of as sexy. Men imagine petite women (you have to be a certain size to be hired by most airlines, meaning over a designated height, and under a designated weight) who serve them, essentially glorified waitresses, which is how some flight attendants jokingly describe themselves.
And then we have the nurse, likely the most stereotypically sexy profession for a woman of them all. It is strange when you think about it, since nurses notoriously do the gross jobs like cleaning up blood stains, mopping up urine on the floor, emptying bed pans, and checking rectums. Fun! And they do it all while wearing loose-fitting scrubs the likes of winter pajama (many with patterns of kittens or kitchen utensils or random swirly designs or symbols of whatever holiday is nearest- hot!).
10 Personal Trainer
Another obvious choice is the personal trainer. They are for the most part attractive in that they are physically fit. If they are not, they would not (and should not) be a personal trainer advising others on how to be fit. Personal trainers work individually with those hoping to slim down, beef up, or just develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. They know about nutrition, exercise, and the human body. What is not to love about that?
A dancer is another physically demanding job sure to keep your girl in shape. There are many kinds of dancers out there- ballerinas, modern dancers, dance teachers, etc. Besides being fit- anywhere from slim and lithe to athletic and muscular, or somewhere in between- dancers possess a certain discipline that is quite attractive. They are hard workers who have a passion for what they do, and that is hot!
Just as it is said that women date their fathers, so are men looking for their mothers. I mean this in the way that they inherently would like someone who cooks, cleans, and all-around takes care of them. Not all men, of course, but a good majority of them. And there is nothing wrong with this. Women are naturally predisposed to these things, just as men are predisposed to be stronger and thus do more physical labor. Anyway, to get back on point, a waitress serves food and alcohol, and often they look pretty good doing it.
7 Yoga Instructor
Oh, the poses. Oh, the flexibility! Personally, I look at some of the yoga poses and cringe just from the thought of bending that way, but all the power to them. Yoga can be done by anyone of course, but more women practice the ancient form of strength-building than do men. This is probably because women are naturally more flexible. A yoga instructor is the best because she combines athleticism and education, a different kind of teacher entirely. The love of her sport (if you can call it that) is endearing, as well.
An athlete is usually attractive because of all the workouts and practice they endure to excel at their preferred sport. Many athletes, whether they go on to be a professional or teach at a high school or give it up entirely for whatever reason, have loved and worked at their sport since they were little children. It could be soccer or basketball or karate or track or anything in between, but athletes always have a physical job to do.
This one is a given, no? I mean, what guy hasn't fantasized about a naughty teacher at some point in their lives? Maybe it is the authority thing, like I mentioned before, or that they are seen as nurturing, especially to children, but who knows? Teachers can be sexy to their students, like so many boys I knew in high school and middle school, but simply being a teacher is attractive even to those who are not their pupils.
Who doesn't love a woman who can stand her ground, stand up for what she believes in, and argue to the death? Well, maybe not that last one, but you get the idea. Lawyers are tough, and they are smart. They are also resourceful and clever, all attractive qualities when it comes to personality. But they are also physically appealing- pencil skirts, open blouses, stiletto heels, maybe some nerd glasses...
Like a teacher, a student is also highly fantasized about. Usually (and hopefully...) the student is the one crushing on the teacher, and not the other way around. But anyone could think a student is a hot, not just a teacher. So for those guys out there that are taken by the thought of a young college girl, I am thinking it is the rebellious phase of life that intrigues you. College girls party, experiment, sleep around, and often do as they damn well please.
An anchorwoman is well-spoken, charming, and expected (like a few others on this list) to look nice and well put-together all the time. She is a representative of the community and her network, and is thus generally poised and on her best behavior. There is something to be said for a goody-two-shoes of sorts, is there not? And besides all that, an anchorwoman is kind of famous, depending on your location. People like journalist Savannah Guthrie of NBC news' The Today Show is a nationally recognizable face, but even anchors from smaller cities are bound to be recognized around town.
Policewomen are in control, and get the job done (plus, there are the handcuffs!). They have a serious and dangerous job to do, and that job is priority number 1 because lives could be at stake. It is precisely that level of seriousness that makes a policewoman's career one of the hottest. Like many before this, the hard work, dedication, and even the aspect of care-taking involved in being an officer of the law all work together to create an appealing fantasy.
This one embraces everything- knowledge, success, hard work, passion, care-taking, and pretty much everything else anyone could ever ask for from a career. Doctors are notorious for long hours and the crazy amount of schooling they had to endure in order to have those long hours. This means that no one who does not really want to do it, does it. Doctors are sexy for all of these reasons and more, and the good thing is that men's fantasy about them is likely more accurate than for all of the other jobs on this list, because the realities of the job are universally known already, but unlike nurses who wear something oh-so different than the fantasy, doctors wear white coats over whatever they want.
Yes, they wear scrubs for surgery, but otherwise they wear classy, nice clothing and a lab coat on top. There are plenty of attractive female doctors who actually do wear heels to work, and a skirt. And often, the white coat (a symbol of authority and knowledge) adds to the sexiness because of what it represents. A stethoscope hanging around the neck is just the icing on the cake. But fundamentally, doctors are the sexiest women around not because of anything physical, but because no matter what kind of doctor they are (pediatrician, OB/GYN, physical therapist, plastic surgeon, etc.) they literally hold lives in their hands. They save lives, bring them into the world, and keep them going until it is no longer possible. I can think of nothing more attractive.
