    When Is Not-So-Sexy... Oh-So-Sexy?

    Salon-perfect...or messy and sweaty?

    Lorenda Layne, 28
    Matt Niblack, 28
    Married two years

    LORENDA: Like most girls, I definitely feel the most sexy when I've got my hair relaxed and set, my eyebrows freshly waxed at the salon, and I'm putting on a dress and heels to go out. The attention to detail that's involved in each of these things gives me a chance to focus on my body and accentuate and showcase my best features. When I know I look my best, I feel more confident — and when I feel confident, I feel sexy.

    MATT: I'm most attracted to the things that make Ren unique and show her natural energy. So I love the way she looks the week before she goes to the salon, when her roots have grown so her hair is puffy. I've never met a girl who had such voluminous hair. I love to mess it up so that it gets really big. Also, when she's just gotten home from the gym, all sweaty in her Twizzlers T-shirt, ratty gray yoga pants, and tennis shoes, with her hair pulled back but with a few stray strands plastered to her face. She has a glow in her complexion from doing something she loves, and every part of her body, from hair to sweat, communicates an energy that is very sexy.

    Sharing your day...or sharing your night?

    Tricia Barefoot, 37
    Greg Barefoot, 39
    Married 11 years

    TRICIA: I feel sexy when all the parts of my life are in happy harmony. When I've had a great day with the kids, or have found a way to better our lives, or have completed a task I'm working on, I can't wait to share these moments with Greg. Knowing that I've contributed something great to my world and that the one man I love more than anything sees it too — that's sexy! So it's not the little black dress, or the heels, or the hairdo. It's the idea that the person I love gets me and finds me sexy just for being me.

    GREG: The most obvious thing is her apparel — anything silk from Victoria's Secret worn at night. But Tricia is sexy in how she carries herself too. This might manifest itself in the way she walks, sings a song off-key, or plays with the kids. It's hard to describe, but during these moments, I'm reminded that I'm no longer married to a girl, but to a very confident and sexy woman.
