Sometimes this is pretty obvious -- like when we give explicit dating advice or explain the mystical forces that secretly govern our libidos -- but even when we're talking about the horrible ways sex can go wrong, we're still hoping you can use the information we're sharing as an icebreaker to convince an attractive colleague to come back to your humble apartment and get freaky with kitchen utensils (we're not judging). And in this Cracked Classic, we continue that noble tradition by reminding our male readers that some of their trusty "moves" are secretly sabotaging their bone-tential. So absorb this knowledge and go forth, trusty readers. As we mentioned in this article, attracting a woman can be so easy you don't even realize you're doing it.
