When you’re a guy, just watching a great girl is a turn on.

But if you want to turn on any guy with the slightest effort, here are a few pointers on what turns a guy on that could point you in the right direction.

What turns a guy on?

For a guy, getting turned on is all in the head.

If he’s experiencing the stage of infatuation or watching a girl he doesn’t know, he’d get turned on in no time.

If he’s in a relationship with you, it may take just a wee bit of effort to get him high and mighty.

But in no particular order, here are 20 things that would definitely turn on any guy, no matter where he is.

#1 Skin and skimpy clothes

Give a guy a little peek-a-boo or flash him a bit of thigh in a flimsy skirt when he least expects it, and all he’d want is more.

#2 Lingering touches

Guys love it when a cute girl gently touches them. It doesn’t have to be sexual, but as long as the touch tingles his sensation, he’ll feel tight around his jeans.

#3 Close proximity

Ever found yourself standing in an elevator with a guy you like? Stand close to his side, and he’ll have a lump in his throat. Stand in front of him and graze your butt against his pants, and he’ll have a lump way below his throat.

#4 A girl who flirts

Any guy gets helplessly drawn to a girl who can smile, flirt and laugh back with a twinkle in her eyes. It makes him feel more like a man. And it also makes him wish you were his. [Read: How to flirt with a guy without really flirting]

#5 A sexually confident girl

A sexually confident girl is a huge turn on for any guy. Getting the opportunity to date a girl who can take control and dominate him in bed is a fantasy that all men dream of.

#6 A girl who’s not sexually confident

Men love the helpless damsel in bed. As much as they love a sexually confident woman, they also get extremely turned on by a virgin who knows nothing in bed. It works two ways. He can please her like no man ever has. And no matter what, he’d always be great in bed.

#7 A shy girl who’s not so shy after all

There’s something about the cute girl next door with her little cute books and her cute attitude that guys like. But when a guy dates this sweet girl and sees that she’s got more of a sexual wild side than he could ever have imagined, he’d be tight around his shorts for many days to come!

#8 A girl who can surprise him

Surprise your man with a few sexy tricks up your sleeve and he’ll love you for it. Open the door for him with nothing on but your sexy lingerie. Strip yourself off for no reason out of the blue and ask him to take you. Shock him, awe him and surprise him and he’ll desire you and get turned on by you forever. [Read: How to dress for sex]

#9 Two women together

There’s almost nothing that turns a guy on more than watching two girls together. A guy may like a girl. But bring two girls who can get touchy feely with each other and his mind might just explode.

#10 Accidental touches down there

Have you ever bumped into a guy and accidentally touched him down there with your hand? Or have you sat down next to him and scribbled something on an iPad or a notebook when it’s on his lap? If his member can feel your hand’s pressure, we assure you, he’ll reciprocate with his own pressure upwards.

#11 Accidental boob graze

It happens all the time, when you hug a guy, when you accidentally walk into a guy or when a guy tries to catch you as your foot slips a stair. If a guy gets to feel an attractive girl’s breasts, there’s little that can stop him from growing down there.

#12 Accidental kiss

Accidental kisses don’t happen all the time, but when it does happen, it’s something a guy’s little head will never forget. [Read: How to kiss a friend accidentally]

#13 A girl who’s good in bed

You don’t need to be sexually dominant or submissive. As long as you’re hot stuff who can excite a man in bed, he’d get turned on by you no matter what.

#14 Lingerie and high heels

This one’s a lethal combination. It’s so sexy, there’s nothing any guy can ever do to resist a girl wearing lingerie and heels. If you ever find out that your man had a one night stand with a random girl, there’s a good chance that she was wearing this. Or perhaps, just a trench coat and a hat.

#15 Well fitting clothes

This sounds rather refined and clean. And it really is. Guys get turned on by a girl who looks really hot in clothes that fit her well. Just watching a girl’s breasts take shape in her perfectly fitting tight top is a definitely turn on for any guy.

#16 Sitting on his lap

Have you ever sat on a guy’s lap? Try it. As long as you sit in the right place, you’d feel something hard forcing its way up in less than a minute, even if the guy’s trying hard to concentrate on losing the erection. The next time you click a picture with a cute guy, you know where to sit now, don’t you? [Read: 10 tips to seduce a man who’s not yours]

#17 See through clothes

Sheer white shirts and black bras on girls are every guy’s dream, especially when it’s wet. Guys love it when a girl wears sheer clothes that are so thin and flimsy that all they need is a light source on the other side to see every curve on her body through the light.

#18 Stiff nipples

Va va voom! Stiff nipples are a sight that no guy forgets, be it on a girl on the street or on the girl next door. It’s every guy’s dream to pinpoint the exact location of a girl’s nipple. Help him out with that and his little member may just rise to give you a standing ovation.kourtney-kardashian-bikini-pics-sexy-13

#19 Boy shorts

Guys love boy shorts on a girl with never ending legs. The little sneak peeks of her cute butt when she bends low are almost always etched on a guy’s mind, never to fade away. Wear one the next time you pick a piece of paper on the floor. You’ll probably find his jaw on the floor when you get up.

#20 An aroused girl

Guys try so hard to turn a girl on with stolen glances, flirty words, and soft touches. But when he does get to see a girl that’s already aroused, be it on a dance floor, on a date, or even in his bed, there’s nothing he can ever think of but his swelling little head and a way to take her to bed!

How to Look Good in Bed When Your Man Comes Over!

how to look good in bed

Want to arouse your guy with a mere glance? Find out how to look attractive in bed with your boyfriend and turn him on with these clever, sexy moves.

Have you ever wondered how to sleep with him, especially for the first time?

Sleeping with a guy for the first time or the hundredth makes no difference to most girls and women. They still feel awkward and uncomfortable about their sleepy face, messed up hair and bleeding makeup. How many times have you woken up in the morning with a thick coat of foundation and running mascara? Now how many times has this happened while your man is in bed with you?

How to sleep with him

Ever heard of the phrase, “if you want to know how beautiful a woman is, take a look at her in the morning”.

If that’s the definition of true beauty, then I’m pretty sure many of us are pretty awful to look at.

A coat of beauty products at night don’t really look the same when we wake up in the morning.

But at the same time, we just can’t look our best without decking up to perfection for that ‘dinner date followed by sex at his place’ look.

For many women, waking up in the morning next to their guy is the worst experience. Many women tip-toe into the loo before anyone’s up and give themselves a few dabs of blush or just wash up and apply a fresh coat of everything

The end of wondering how to sleep with him

Unfortunately though, all these activities pretty much stop after the day a woman gets married. After that, the man has to wake up and see two women in a day. One, the woman he sleeps with, and two, the woman he finds in bed the next morning!

How to sleep with him and look attractive at the same time

Now keeping those key points in mind, you have to understand that your beauty do is what makes you look the worst when you wake up.

So go easy on your makeup kit when you’re going to hit the sack. Your man will still love you even if you don’t look like a porn star every night. And if you do want to look like a stunning porn star every night, make it a point to wash yourself up clean. Nothing looks prettier than a perfectly clean face in the morning when you sleep with him.

If you feel uncomfortable about sleeping with your face in the nude, like most women do, use a few basic necessities that will make you look, feel and smell good. Just as long as your beauty necessities aren’t filled with heavy duty moisturizers and oil based liquids, you’d look great when you wake up with him.

Even if you love looking like a hooker while you’re on top of him at night, you have to realize that your face isn’t going to look that hot once your head hits the pillow. And there’s also the fact that you’re going to have bits of drool sliding down your face. Ewww! Now imagine that drool’s effect on your layer of foundation! Gross!

Entice him with your body

Are you still wondering how to sleep with him? If you really do want to look sexy in the morning, then focus on your body instead of just your pretty face. The point is, your man would want to have the whole package in his arms, not just the face.

So focus on your body, they’re going to look the same all the time. So if you’re still not sure how to sleep with him and look good in bed at the same time, opt for a sexy slinky dress instead of a boring frayed tee and shorts combo.

That combination is always something that can arouse a man, whichever way you face in the morning. Other than the appearance, a man loves to wake up to a good fragrance in the morning. Dab a bit of mild perfume around your neck and wrists. Wake your man up with your fragrance along with the first rays of sunshine, that way he’ll never forget the way .

Now that you know how to sleep with him, we’ll dive straight in into the sexiest styles of sleeping and the big question – what to wear to bed to impress and seduce him. There are several ways to turn a guy on and look really sexy when you sleep with a man. And you should always remember that looking sexy and attractive in bed doesn’t really have to be all about clothes and lingerie.

The girls at Lovepanky decided to ask around and put in a few of their own tips on what to wear to bed, and how to make a great impression even while simply lying down. Here are some awesome and unique tried and tested what-to-wear-to-bed suggestions from a few sexy sleepers.

What to wear to bed #1

It depends on your guy. My guy loves it when I wear a fitting cotton tee and panties… if your man loves silk, then go for silk boy shorts and a corset, or spaghetti straps.

How Nigeria Will Benefit From Currency Swap Deal With China

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) says the bilateral currency swap agreement with the Peoples Bank of China (PBoC) will help the liquidity issues faced by Nigerian traders and Chinese manufacturers.

The apex bank said with the deal, Chinese businessman will have sufficient naira to purchase raw materials from Nigeria and Nigerian importers will not endure the challenge of ‘third currency’ fluctuations when trying to make payments for Chinese exports

.

“The deal, which is purely an exchange of currencies, will also make it easier for Chinese manufacturers seeking to buy raw materials from Nigeria to obtain enough Naira from banks in China to pay for their imports from Nigeria.

“Indeed, the deal will protect Nigerian business people from the harsh effects of third currency fluctuations,” CBN said in a statement.

It added that as the deal comes into effect, Nigerian manufacturers, cottage industry players and anyone who need imports from China will be able to secure RMB from Nigerian banks: “With the operationalization of this agreement, it will be easier for most Nigerian manufacturers, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and cottage industries in manufacturing and export businesses to import raw materials, spare-parts and simple machinery to undertake their businesses by taking advantage of available RMB liquidity from Nigerian banks without being exposed to the difficulties of seeking other scarce foreign currencies.”

The CBN listed benefits of the deal to include helping both to manage their reserves better among other benefits: “It will also assist both countries in their foreign exchange reserves management, enhance financial stability and promote broader economic cooperation between the two countries.”

A Miami woman has accused rapper Future of leaving her stranded in Los Angeles after she refused to have sex with him.

 

The woman, an aspiring singer named Shamartess, claims Future asked her to take a flight to Los Angeles and he will reimburse her. He also booked a hotel for her. She claims she has hung out with him in the studio before and he was cool, so she thought he was inviting her to LA so they could go to the studio together.

Shamartess shared her story on Facebook and added screenshots of their chats as proof.

N11.5Billion Fraud: Alao Akala, two others fail to get application for ‘stay’

N11.5Billion Fraud: Alao Akala, two others fail to get application for

Justice M. L. Owolabi of the Oyo State High Court 15 sitting in Iyaganku, Ibadan on Monday, June 4, 2018 refused and dismissed an application for stay of proceedings, pending the outcome of an appeal at the Supreme Court by a former governor of Oyo State, Otunba Adebayo Christopher Alao-Akala and the Chief Executive Officer of Pentagon Consults, Olufemi Ademola Babalola.

 

In his ruling, Justice Owolabi said “stay of proceedings will do more damage to the case which has been pending since 2011 and ordered the prosecution to assemble all its witnesses at the next date”.

 

Alao-Akala alongside the former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Hosea Ayoola Agboola and a contractor and Chief Executive Officer of Pentagon Consults, Mr Olufemi Ademola Babalola are standing trial on offences bordering on alleged criminal  conspiracy and fraudulent practices to the tune of N11.5 billion.

 

They were earlier arraigned on an11-counts charge and they all pleaded not guilty to each count of charge preferred against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

However, after arraignment, their trial was stalled following their applications to stay further proceedings/trial pending the determination of their appeals at the Supreme Court by counsel to the first and third defendants, A.O. Afolabi (SAN) and A. Ogunwole (SAN) respectively filed on April 9, 2018.

 

Their motions were however opposed by the Prosecuting Counsel, Dr. Ben Ubi, relying on his written submissions on points of law and he urged the court to refuse the applications and rather order for accelerated hearing of the case in accordance with the spirit and intendment of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law of Oyo State, 2016 and Section 19(2)(b) of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(Establishment) Act, 2004.
.
.
The case was therefore adjourned to the 29th June and 3rd July, 2018 for trial.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to all the counts preferred against them.

How China took 700 million people out of poverty – Femi Adesina writes

How China took 700 million people out of poverty - Femi Adesina writes

President Buhari’s special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina who is currently in China has just shared how the Asian country took 700 million of its people out of poverty.

 

According to Adesina, ‘in the 1950s-1970s, China was just like Nigeria. Its situation was just like the ashes from which President Muhammadu Buhari is trying to take the country from today. No electricity, the best form of transportation on the waters were rafts, take-home pay could not take the workers home, and the people were in distress, forlorn and disconsolate. No clean water for domestic use, the country could barely feed its burgeoning population, social welfare was almost nil. It was the Hobbesian state of nature. Life was nasty, brutish and short’.

 

Read his full piece below…

The ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) has a target by 2020: to ensure that what is called ‘population poverty’ is eradicated in the country of 1.3 billion people. And it means business, as between 1978 when the country embarked on reforms, and now, over 700 million people have been taken out of grinding poverty.
Bidding farewell to poverty is not just a pie in the sky for China, which can only be eyed longingly, but which the mouth will never touch. It is putting its money where its mouth is, with the political leadership working strenuously for the people.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, goes a popular saying. And China is planning, and scrupulously so. It is currently in the 13th cycle of its 5-yearly development plan, which is akin to a roadmap for the country. The goal by 2020 is eradication of crippling poverty.
“Since the reform and opening up, we have carried out large-scale poverty alleviation and development policies, and have successfully lifted 700 million rural people out of poverty,” Professor Li Ping of the Institute of Quantitative and Technical Economics, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told us at the ongoing Seminar for National Governance for Presidential Advisers of Developing Countries in Beijing. He added: “Such great achievements add a glorious chapter in the history of anti-poverty. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, we have included the poverty alleviation and development work into the ‘four comprehensive’ strategic scheme as the focus of efforts to achieve the first centenary goal.”
In the 1950s-1970s, China was just like Nigeria. Its situation was just like the ashes from which President Muhammadu Buhari is trying to take the country from today. No electricity, the best form of transportation on the waters were rafts, take-home pay could not take the workers home, and the people were in distress, forlorn and disconsolate. No clean water for domestic use, the country could barely feed its burgeoning population, social welfare was almost nil. It was the Hobbesian state of nature. Life was nasty, brutish and short.
Professor HE Wenping of Institute of West African and Asian Studies of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences describes what used to subsist thus: “China, which is now the world’s second biggest economy, used to be very poor. Before you could get married as a man then, you must get three things; a bicycle, which you would ride with your wife, a television set (a whole community may have just one, which they would all gather to watch in an open place), and a sewing machine. That would be used to sew clothes worn by the family.”
Prof Wenping was not talking of medieval times, but of just four decades ago. And then, the leadership caught a vision. It decided to embark on reforms under President Deng Xiaoping, opened up to the rest of the world, and articulated political and economic policies, which have within 40 years (this year) launched China into the second biggest economy worldwide, after the United States of America.
How did China do it?
Presenting a paper titled ‘China’s Political System and Xi Jinping’s Ideas on Governance,’ Prof Wenping submitted: “”Deng Xiaoping pointed out in 1987 that there are three criteria to judge whether or not a political system or policy is suitable or correct for a country, namely; is it beneficial for political stability, beneficial for economic development, and beneficial for the improvement of people’s living standard? If they do, that is a good system and policy. Otherwise, it is not good at all.”
In other words, China had to forge a homegrown political and economic system that was good for its own people. It didn’t copy lock, stock and barrel from other countries far ahead. It recognized that economic development and political stability were intertwined.
President Jinping has built on the vision of his forebears, and articulated ideas on governance, which include; keeping the Chinese Dream alive through hard work and innovation, realizing youthful dreams, and connecting Chinese dreams with the rest of the world by sharing the benefit with other countries.
Others include combating corruption, enhancing China’s cultural soft power by cultivating and disseminating the core socialist values, and peaceful diplomacy with the rest of the world.
On the need for anti-corruption war, Prof Huang Xiaoyong, also of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, posited: “We will not stop. We will always do it. That’s the way to ensure fairness in our society. It is difficult to eliminate corruption altogether, but we must never allow it to spin out of control. It destabilizes society and communities. Development is thus affected.”
True. Where are the billions of dollars Nigeria made from oil when the commodity sold at $100 dollars and above per barrel? Vanished! Utterly transmuted. No wonder Nigerians will never allow those who had vandalized the public treasury to return to power, irrespective of half-hearted apologies they’ve rendered. The pathway to sustainable development is the one being trod by President Buhari, and never again will Nigerians entrust the public treasury to rapacious people.
China has identified five development concepts to battle poverty, which I believe are useful to Nigeria. Ensure that innovation and development are the driving forces, solve the problem of unbalanced development, solve the problem of harmony between man and nature (preserve the environment), ensure there is internal and external linkage in development, solve the problem of social equity and justice.
Prof Li Ping concluded his presentation this way: “Making people receive more education is the fundamental way to tackle the issues of chronic poverty and poverty passed from generation to generation.”
Can anybody disagree?
The poverty battle is a war Nigeria must win. It has enough endowments for it. But it is not by returning to the immediate infamous past.

A Nigerian boxer’s face was blown off after he was blasted with a shotgun just yards from his mum’s front door in London.

Oluwafemi Omosuyi, 22, had recently come back from training in Dublin and was hanging out with friends at about 8pm on Saturday when he was gunned down as he sat in a car outside Oliver Goldsmith Primary in Peckham, south London.

Horrific footage shared online shows Femi lying with blood pouring from his face.

President Buhari explains why the Army was soft on Biafrans during the civil war

President Buhari explains why the Army was soft on Biafrans during the civil war

President Buhari today gave an explanation as to why the Nigerian army was soft on Biafrans during the civil war.

While speaking at his investiture as Grand Patron of the Nigerian Red Cross Society (NRCS) at the presidential villa in Abuja, President Buhari said it was because the then head of state, Yakubu Gowon, issued strict instructions to the army that Biafrans were not enemies but “brothers and sisters of the rest of Nigerians”.

“Earlier in my profession, during the civil war, I know how much sacrifice members of the Nigerian Red Cross and their international counterparts did both in the real front of operations and at the rear, on both sides. I think it is a lot of sacrifices because anything can happen to you in the operational areas. The risks they faced were real and I admire their courage and commitment to helping people who were in distress and were virtually in millions. Those photographs of people from the Biafra enclave spoke a lot. I remember with nostalgia the performance of the commander-in-chief, General Yakubu Gowon. Every commander was given a copy of the commander-in-chief’s instructions that we were not fighting enemies but that we were fighting our brothers. And thus, people were constrained to show a lot of restraint. The international observer teams were allowed to go as far as possible within and outside the front and I think this was generous and very considerate of General Gowon. He is a highly committed Nigerian.” he said

Tunisia‘s national goalkeeper, Mouez Hassen has been accused of faking injuries during the World Cup warm-up matches so his teammates could break their Ramadan fast.

According to the Sun UK, Hassen faked injuries against Portugal and Turkey coinciding with sunset, which is when Ramadan fasting ends.

In the 49th minute of Tunisia’s World Cup warm-up game against Turkey, Hassen stayed down following a fairly innocuous collision from a corner.

As the referee signaled for a break in play for “treatment”, Hassen’s team-mates made their way to the touchline to eat dates and drink water before taking to the field back.

Both games finished 2-2.

Tunisian sports reporters were the first to point out that Hassen’s injuries both coincided with sunset, which is when Iftar – or the breaking of the fast begins.

Freelance reporter Souhail Khmira tweeted that there is ‘an agreement’ between the players and their goalkeeper to break their fast in this way.

Hassen who has since been teased on Twitter by fellow footballer Chaker Alhadhur, told him: ‘It’s all right now, we know you were pretending.’

In response, Hassen tweeted ‘I was injured bruv’ alongside laughing emojis

Meanwhile, Hassen was not punished during either game by the on-field officials, and the Tunisian football federation has yet to comment on the timing of the two injury breaks.

Health minister, Isaac Adewole, orders police to arrest defaulters of Shisha ban

The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewol, has asked the Nigeria Police Force to henceforth arrest defaulters of the ban on tobacco products including Shisha. The Health Minister gave the directive at a press conference in Abuja to mark the 2018 World No-Tobacco Day today June 4th.

“Let me stress that the ban on tobacco products with characterising flavours is still in place and the ban includes shisha because it has flavour. I, therefore, urge the Consumer Protection Council and the law enforcement agencies to intensify arrest of defaulters.” he said

According to the British Heart Foundation, Shisha smoking is a way of smoking tobacco, sometimes mixed with fruit or molasses sugar, through a bowl and hose or tube.
