Men are more susceptible to feeling scandalised than you can imagine. Brothers from the same and other mothers discuss anything and everything under the sun, that too in explicit detail. The men represented in films and storybooks are lit with a masculine confidence that makes the shy damsel blush, not the other way around.
Is making a man blush, a tough trick to pull off?
Well, there is a way around. Let us narrow it down to six things you can whisper in his ears to make him blush, for a change.
1. “I am going commando”
Voila! That gets you a whopping shade of crimson feathering his cheeks and ears. Be gentle and gauge your victim well, because opening your date night with this comment might result into a quick run to the Emergency Room.
Though taught to fancy a woman without her underwear in a formal situation, your man was not prepared to be in that particular place himself.
You, girl, have got his attention.

2. “Meet me in five”
Wait, that’s not it. Let me illustrate the scene: A dinner date at a restaurant it still is. Now leaning over the table, you whisper this much; then stand up and meaningfully walk towards the washroom. His colour might give you guys away to the watchful eyes of the waiter, nothing that cannot be fixed with a sensible tip amount. But your blushing man sitting at the table looking frazzled is a sight you wouldn’t want to miss. The rest of course will be between you, him and the washroom.
3. “Dessert at my place?”
A lovely conversation over a full-course meal. Now comes the moment of ordering something sweet. What could be a sweeter offer than to invite him to your apartment for a nightcap? Or you could also literally have dessert back at your place but with a dirty twist. Yes, your man has reached these conclusions and a couple more in his mind the moment you whispered this. Your man will find it hard to keep his thoughts to himself, as his colour is going to betray him.

4. “Do you want to stay over?”
Your coy lover blushes again as he realises your parents are not home and that you, and not him, are making all the sexual advances. His colour will rise as he realises that chickening out is not an option anymore. Enjoy his awkward blush as he finds a place to make himself comfortable in your house. Till that time go make a sandwich for him to balance things out, maybe?
5. “I want you to lie still”
Yes, domination can make him blush. I agree he can just be blushing at the embarrassment of being dominated by a woman, but after the initial male entitlement passes, the colour staining his cheeks will be that of excitement and anticipation.

6. “Is this your first?”
I don’t blame you for asking, as he has persistently blushed through the evening as you repeated advances after advances. This blush will need your attention: it could be the virginal blush of your sweet man or a red flush of hurt ego. Be prepared to handle either situation. My job is to inform you about the techniques of ‘how to’; now I shall take my leave.
