When it comes to what turns someone on, it's very much a 'to each their own' situation. Fantasies and turn-ons are far more varied than you might think. "Research shows that a wide range of sexual fantasies are both common and perfectly normal," Astroglide's Resident Sexologist Dr. Jessica O'Reilly tells Bustle. And it's totally natural to have a bit of a fascination with what's going on in other people's minds... and libidos. Luckily, the people of Reddit are there to help us out. They shared the one thing that someone can say that makes them instantly horny — and there's quite the range of responses.

While some people like really explicit language to turn them on, others get a kick out of the more pedestrian. It's an interesting insight into other people's sex lives and sexual preferences. Which is important because, beyond curiosity, getting a look at other people's sexual desires makes us feel more comfortable with our own. You can look at a list and see yourself reflected back in that and get a reminder that, when it comes to sex, there's definitely no such thing as normal.

Here's what they found, because sometimes it just takes a couple of words to go from zero to horny.
