Music, kissing & more. What does every Turn-On on Pure mean?

Что нужно знать о партнере перед свиданием

We think everyone has a turn-on. To help you navigate Pure better, we've compiled this Turn-On Vocabulary to help you choose from our extensive list of preferences while dating and when in bed. Some of them are pretty straightforward, and some of them, we're sure, will surprise you. Read, learn, and apply in practice!


1. Cuddles

Whether it’s foreplay or aftercare — cuddling is a great way of getting close to someone. Clothes on or off, bed or bathtub, arms or legs (or both) entwined: The possibilities are nigh endless.

2. Kisses

This one is not just about making out. If you enjoy kissing your partner’s body, or having a partner do it — add it to your profile. Love a perky kiss on the cheek when you meet someone? This Turn-On is for you!

3. Massage

Add it when you enjoy massaging, kneading, and stroking your partner's body — or someone else doing it to you. It doesn't have to be about getting it on, so feel free to add it if you're a tactile human being.

4. Music

Add it if you like sharing playlists, going to concerts and parties, listening to music together, and getting to know each other through your musical preferences.

Do you enjoy reading books? Sharing opinions and recommendations? Are you a fan of gifting and receiving books, or have you always wanted to be a librarian? Bookmark this Turn-on!

If you avidly watch TV series and movies, have all the streaming subscription services, and love to talk about Polanski, Kubrick, and Hitchcock on a first date, add this Turn-On to your profile.

7. Foot fetish

Do you like touching and kissing feet, ankles and calves? How about watching your partner do it? We're head over heels for this Turn-On, too.

Perfumes and scented cosmetics, body odor, clothes, and shoes, a light note of tobacco on the skin — if any of these things make you happy or excited, this Turn-On was made for you!

10. Oral Sex
