It’s pretty obvious when a man is aroused… I mean, it’s visible, right? But the signs of female arousal might not be so easy to read.
When it comes to sexual arousal, men can be straightforward *pun intended* with all his huffing, grunting, and the size of the stick he’s waving around. Women, on the other hand, are a far more complicated read. Knowing whether she’s in the mood can be tricky, for the signs of female arousal make up a long list and can manifest itself in very subtle ways.
Knowing how to read the signs of female arousal is a handy tool to have in your pocket for your dating escapades and bedroom liaisons. If you can tell if she’s ready for the picking, you can easily swoop down and take her to places that she hasn’t gone before.

These are the signs of female arousal that you can see or touch when the ship has sailed, and both of you are lying down naked… getting to it. [Read: 12 clues to spot horny women *and take her home*]
#1 She’s wet down under. One of the most straightforward signs of female arousal is the opening of the floodgates. A female getting wet down in her crotch is like a man getting a boner. Ladies get wet down under naturally when sexually aroused in order to lubricate their female parts for sexual intercourse. [Read: 10 secret pleasure tips to arouse a woman instantly]
#2 Erect nipples. Human nipples are made up of erectile tissue similar to that making up the clitoris and the male penis. During the state of sexual excitement, her blood flow goes crazy, making these erectile tissues respond by standing in attention. So if she’s sporting those pokies even if the room isn’t cold, she’s most likely horny.
#3 Engorged clitoris. The clitoris is said to be the female cousin of the male penis, so therefore, they respond to sexual arousal in a similar manner.
As mentioned, there is an increased blood flow during sexual arousal. Therefore, the clitoris’ erectile tissue gets pumped up with blood, making it enlarged, hard, and more sensitive than usual. You can definitely say that this is a girl having her own boner. [Read: Top 10 erogenous zones that drive a woman crazy]
#4 Vaginal expansion. Vaginal expansion, also known as “tenting” is a phenomenon where the vaginal muscles expands a third of its original size during a state of sexual excitement. This happens in order to prepare itself for sexual intercourse and allow it to accommodate an enlarged erect penis.
#5 Enlarged labia. During sexual arousal, her external genitalia also changes shape. Along with an erect clitoris, the labia also gets enriched with blood making it puffy and protruding, the muscles around it also tense a little bit making the labia open up to reveal her vagina. It’s her way of saying that she’s “open for business.”
#6 She’s more vocal about her arousal. There can be no other obvious sign of arousal when she’s vocal about it. Because even if you’re the densest guy in town, how can you miss the message behind “I’m so wet,” “I’m so horny,” and “OH YES!”?
You have Masters and Johnson to thank for this information. Because if they didn’t decide to strap EEGs, ECGs, and other clinical gizmos into a couple having sex back then, we wouldn’t know what other things happen inside the female body during sex and sexual arousal.

#7 Elevated heart rate. The key word of sexual arousal is “arousal.” Arousal is a heightened state of physical activity when you’re doing or feeling anything physically or mentally demanding.
Sex is as physically demanding as it is mentally exciting, so the body responds by increasing blood flow all over to deliver more oxygen to the cells for sweaty sexual activity later on.
#8 Higher skin temperature. Also known as “sex flushes,” girls get an increased skin temperature when they’re sexually excited in order to accommodate their increased blood flow. This is the reason why she’s blushing all over when she’s sexually excited and she keeps asking, “is it just me or is it hot in here?”
#9 Heavy breathing. Females also exhibit heavy and deep breathing when they are sexually aroused as shown by countless sex scenes in every erotic film ever. This happens because they need to draw in more oxygen to support their increased heart rate brought about by sexual excitement. [Read: How to turn a girl on and excite her mind]
#10 Different skin smell. You may or may not notice this, but a girl’s skin smell changes during sexual arousal. Pheromones which are chemicals essential to sexual attraction are released during arousal in order to entice a potential sexual partner. These pheromones are released as a byproduct of female hormones that rage about when she is sexually excited.
These are the signs you can’t put your finger on *literally and figuratively*. The slight behavior changes you can read if she’s not down to her underwear… because you can’t just feel her up and see if she’s wet in casual settings, right? [Read: 9 non-sexual turn ons that arouse a girl instantly]
#12 She’s more attentive to you. If somehow you managed to play your cards right and you get her interested and aroused, she’s going to zero in on you like a shark chasing a bloody carcass.
Sexually aroused girls peruse the man of their desire with such intent you could feel that she’s stripping you naked with her eyes. She will keep complimenting you, laughing at your jokes, and prying you with different other things to send you a message.
#13 She becomes touchier. During sexual arousal, girls get more responsive to touching and find it more pleasurable than usual. With all her hormones raging and blood pumping, her skin becomes more sensitive, and she will take great pleasure to feel her skin run down another person’s skin. That explains the arm touching and the foot caressing your leg under the table. [Read: How to get a girl horny and wet just while sitting next to her]
#14 She lets her guard down. Aside from becoming touchy and feely, girls under a state of arousal, will also take pleasure on being touched, and taken in by strong arms.
This is a primal response to sexual arousal as seen in other female species. Once a girl is sexually aroused, she’ll be more open to you touching her and she’ll be open to other forms of foreplay like dirty talk.
Knowing the signs of female arousal can be difficult, but can be very helpful when having a relationship with a woman. All her kinks and quirks are part of who she is, and that only makes her special and winning her graces more rewarding.
