Lingerie is this season’s “it” gift, and not just for your girlfriend. Between the supple lace and buttery satin, lingerie holds superpowers capable of making anyone feel sexy. In fact, a study conducted by Jim Pfaus at Concordia University in Montreal found that rats were more likely to engage in sex with partners who were wearing tiny jackets than those who were not. This suggests that animals can learn to associate certain types of clothing with sex. The takeaway: If you’re more turned on by a bright red bralette than an unclad chest, you’re not alone! You can blame science.

Lingerie isn’t just for those who identify as female. Any person who finds themselves drawn to the sensual nature of lingerie should try it on. Here are 10 reasons to add lingerie to your gift list this season!

1. Lingerie Can Encourage Freedom of Expression

Lingerie is genderless. Anyone who loves the look and feel of lingerie is invited to wear it!
