Hmmm good topic!
Is comedy an aphrodisiac?
I'd say so 😃 I'm attracted to more than just the way someone looks. Aspects of people's personalities and beliefs, especially things like aggressiveness, being judgemental, conflicting morals etc, can all be an instant turn-off, so it only stands to reason that when someone is completely on the same wavelength as you, that it adds to the attraction. It certainly makes flirting more fun!
Do jokes/people who are funny put you in the mood for sex?
...but going as far as putting me in the mood, no. It makes me more comfortable around them, makes me be more open and let down my guard, but unless I also found them physically attractive I still wouldn't sleep with them. If I didn't find someone funny I don't think there'd be enough of a spark, but equally, that's not all there is to it - I don't think I could be laughed into bed personally.
Thinking of my favourite comedians, Stewart Lee, Sarah Millican, Reginald D Hunter, Sean Lock, I'm not attracted to any of them. Well maybe Reginald a little, but that's more the voice 😏
