Your sexual market value is how much value you provide to someone looking for a mate. Take heart, there are ways to boost your SMV.
Everything has a value, right? I mean your home has a value, your bank account has one, so it makes senses that people have a value. Something similar to “the total package,” your sexual market value or SMV is a calculation of your sexual worth to a sexual partner. The higher your value, the more desirable you are.
Your sexual market value isn’t determined merely by how attractive you are, although that is a component. It is a total sum of what you offer in a sexual relationship. Things like your earning potential, how well you communicate, and how sensitive you are, all factor into your SMV. The good news, if you lack in one area, there is always room for improvement.
How to fix up your sexual market value
There are several factors that increase or decrease your sexual market value. They are all about what type of value you provide to someone looking for a mate. For men, the scale is different from women. Not just about how hot you are, there are many factors at play for upping your SMV.
Factor one: Looks
Yep, that is an easy one for some and a very stubborn one for others. If you were given the gift of looking like Adonis, then your looks catapult you to the top. If, however, you aren’t the best looker in the bunch, fear not, that isn’t all that women are after when looking for a man. If you want to increase your sexual market value then try your hardest to look your best.
#1 Workout. Always keep your body as tight as possible. Not everyone is made to be a muscle head, nor does every girl want one. What they don’t want is a guy who has bigger nipples than them or a beer gut bursting out of his belt. A little exercise and portion control goes a long way.

#2 Grooming. The man bun might be something that makes you “hip,” but that doesn’t mean it is a good look for you personally. Grooming to make yourself look good means you dress and style yourself according to what works for you, not what is in fashion.
Game is all about how you play it. It means how much confidence you have in yourself, how much charisma you exude, and being intelligent enough to hold a conversation.
#3 Be confident. Confidence is highly attractive to women. Because men are innately supposed to be the hunters and gatherers, a woman wants a man who is confident and knows what he wants and who he is. When you walk into a room, own it. When you want something, go after it. Believing in yourself increases your sexual market value by miles.
#4 Be charming. If you want to increase your SMV, then turn on the charm, if and when, you can. Being charming might not come easy, but if you practice giving compliments, smiling a lot, and telling girls what they want to hear, then you boost your overall SMV greatly.
#5 Be well read and smart. It isn’t just about being well read or being street smart. The guy who scores the best on game is the one who does his research, knows a lot about a lot of stuff, and talks to anyone and just about anything. Having depth and the ability to hold your own in any crowd definitely ups your SMV.
Factor three: Status
Your status is a huge factor in your SMV. Status comprises what type of job you hold, how much money you have, and other material things about you. Not everyone is made to be a CEO, but there are ways to increase your status by having some flashy cash around.
#6 Make money. If you want to increase your sexual market value, then you need money to make a woman feel like you can take care of her. Having a job that is upstanding is also a good way to increase your market value.
Perks like sky seats, event tickets, and any other thing that makes whoever you are with feel like they are important are definitely things that increase your value. If you must, get an extra job, work hard to work your way to the top, and try to make a girl feel like she is someone special to be with someone special like you.

#7 Status. Women like powerful men. Be the guy who is critical to any situation to increase your status. If you are the head of something, then be the head of it. That means attaining positions that make you an upstanding member of society.
How good are you in bed? If you think that women don’t care what you are like in bed, you are wrong. To up your playboy factor, try doing the things in bed that drives women crazy.
Experimenting with pleasing women makes her think that you know what you are doing and also makes her feel good. The more giving you are in the bedroom, the more highly you will be valued on the market.
#8 Read about what women like. To increase your sexual market value, try to read about what women like in bed. The more you please her, the more valuable you are to her. Many men underestimate the value of pleasing a woman sexually.
Communication is not always a guy’s strongest suit. A guy who can be there through thick and thin is highly valued. The problem is that there is a fine line to walk when it comes to being someone’s boyfriend and being in the “friend zone.”
#9 Provide support and unconditional love. You don’t have to listen to her go on and on about stuff you don’t care about or be her “girlfriend.” But, you do have to prove to her that you are going to be there through the good times and the bad.
A good boyfriend is someone who has her back, and can fix things when she needs you to. And you always take her side and fight for her. Being a good boyfriend is a very important component to your sexual market value.
Your sexual market value is the total package that you offer someone in the market for a relationship. To up yours, find your best qualities and make them shine. And do what you can to increase the ones that might not be all that great.
