10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World

Before we dive into the reason you pervs curious souls clicked this post to begin with, I have to preface by saying, while I haven’t been to every country in the world and will inevitably leave out many nationalities well-deserving of this list, I curated this based on my personal preference and my own travel experiences.

So don’t take my personal opinions as facts, but more so as one account of uhhm, research. Ha.

I’ve been traveling the world for over three years, spanning 43 countries across 5 continents, so I’ve seen and dealt with thousands of men of all shapes, colors, and ethnicities.

And while beauty comes in many forms, there’s a distinct liking my body eyes take to those when it comes to chiseled cheekbones, groomed facial hair, masculine postures, incredible fashion sense, and an overall pleasant demeanor.

So without further ado, here are my top 10 countries with the hottest hunks. AKA, plan your next vacations accordingly 😉

10. Cuba

Cuba - 10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

Cubans have some of the most varied and melanin-rich tones in their skin. They have this beautiful mix of hazel and grey eye colors, mixed with curly, black hair, and vivacious personalities behind it.

Whether they’re swooning you on the dance floor with their moves or chatting it up on the block, they know how to charm their way to your hearts.

You know how you make eye contact with someone long enough to let them know you’re single interested, yeah, they do that well.

I locked gazes with a man whose eyes were the most beautiful olive color with dark, brown skin and it was at that point when I knew all atheists would be convinced, that there is indeed a God. For He hath blessed us with Cuban men.

9. Greece

10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

Blame Greek mythology for creating characters like Zeus and his beloved seed Hercules, with sculpted bodies and chiseled frames. But I think the most attractive thing about Greek men is their dark features and thick, luscious hair.

I have a female hard-on thing for men who can keep a groomed goatee, adequately matching their mane, at all times.

They do this almost effortlessly, and their 5 o’clock shadows are actually just me creeping behind their faces, mastering the art of restraining orders flirting.

Greek men are just downright gorgeous, and I’d be lying if I said it was the great weather and delicious food that brought me there ten times in the last three years. Hey-ohhh!

8. Morocco

Morocco - 10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

Once you get passed the catcalls every few minutes, and if you’re lucky, a couple shouts of “my beautiful Beyonce” or my favorite, “Yes we can, Michelle Obama!” then you’re well on your way to stealing of the hearts of these beautiful specimens.

Moroccan men have a gaze of gold, as their piercing dark eyes and thick eyelashes put you in a trance.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of locking lips eyes with a Moroccan man, life has yet to be lived to its full potential.

Some of them also wear what looks like black eyeliner, but is actually a cosmetic cultural remedy called kohl or surma, that can both protect from the harsh sun and strengthen the eyes.

Though this practice is common in the Arab world, its use is varied and sometimes archaic depending on who you talk to. But think Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean look, just without the horrible slurred pirate accent.

7. Israel & Palestine

10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

In what turned out to be my most intense yet incredible travel experience this year, I detailed in this post how I admired the beauty of the Israeli and Palestinian people.

If not their olive-colored eyes and tanned skin, it’s their inviting spirits and hospitable hearts.

If not their full beards and warm smiles, it’s their honest words and passionate tones.

If not their rugged and stoic demeanor, it’s their eagerness in shouting, “WELCOME!” whenever possible.

The Middle East is filled with so much eye candy, if the western world just got over its ignorance about daily life in that part of the world, they’d get the opportunity to see one of the most intriguing types of beauty this planet is blessed with.

6. Spain

10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

A single night out in Madrid during the summer is peak season for macho Madrileños to be out flaunting their expensive taste in cologne and perfectly groomed hair.

If you find one that can dance (this isn’t hard), prepare to feel like you just went to third base on the dance floor without taking off your clothes.

I was once so dumbfounded by their beauty, that when a man asked me where I was from, I instead out of excitement blurted out my name, “Gloria!” (Because you need to know the name of a person you fall in love with, duh, I reasoned in my head).

Too far along to correct my mistake, I had a fun time explaining how Gloria was in fact a city in California. And when he finally asked for my name, somehow being Gloria from Gloria still made sense in my head. Okay, stay cute, bye now.

5. Italy

Italy - 10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

While I did write an article about the 10 worst pick-up lines I got from Italian men, it doesn’t mean their efforts were completely overlooked by their heavenly statures.

I constantly revere to them as God’s greatest gift to Earth, and all it takes is a day strolling around Milan, fashion capital of Europe, to wonder if impregnation via glance is a thing.

Italian men, much like Spanish/Latin ones, are touchy, expressive, playful, charming, sensitive, and confident beings. Whether it’s a first date or a fiftieth, they will treat you like a queen — second to their mother of course.

4. Germany

10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

At first glance, German men can look quite intimidating. Their stoic perfection, brawny shoulders, and kinky obsession with always being on time make them even sexier.

They’re always dressed so impeccably that I wonder if they make love with their socks on, just because they’re sexy enough to get away with it. But I digress.

German men have a better vocabulary than half the American men I’ve dealt with, and them being so educated adds yet another layer of please father my kids sexiness to their package, no pun intended initially.

Can you spot the German in this video? Because I’ve already mothered 3 of his kids in my head.

3. Serbia

Can you spot the German in this video? Because I've already mothered 3 of his kids in my head.

As a 5’9 chick (5’10 if my hair is having mood swings), meeting taller men always adds to the appeal. Serbian men tend to be quite tall and have faces that look like they should be insured for a few thousand dollars.

While Serbian women are equally as stunning and have me feeling like a troll alongside them, the men are truly a gift to the eyes. They tend to have a caramel-tone, light brown eyes, dark hair, and a great fashion sense.

I also find the Slavic language quite sexy, so whether they’re speaking in native tongue or accented English, both go right over my head as I’m lost in a gaze, entranced by their presence, planning our future nonexistent wedding mentally.

2. Sweden

10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

Swedes are globally known as being walking, talking models. Straight out of a magazine they are, carrying themselves in a way that screams, “Yes I’m sexy, but I’m going to pretend I have no idea,” because they’re so damn humble too.

Being humble and shy also works to their advantage, because as this gorgeous blonde-haired beaut is staring at you, you’re trying to read whether you should flirt back, check for boogers, or get pregnant another drink on the spot.

They’re most fun after a couple drinks, and you can bet they’ll be at any and every type of music festival around the world, congregating, and collectively showing off their precious faces. God bless it.

1. Argentina

10 Countries With The Hottest Men In The World |

Latin passion mixed with Euro classicism puts Argentinian men at the number one spot in perhaps the easiest first ranking I’ve ever had to give.

The first Argentinian man I met was at a hostel reception desk a couple years ago.

He was confident, yet casual. Sexy, yet smooth. Charming, yet chill.

He played the guitar, knew how to sing, and his hair did this thing where it magically caressed his forehead and moved to the beat of my heart every time he looked another direction.

I found myself running back and forth to either side of him to call his name, just so I could watch his bangs do that cute little thing when he turned his head — exist.

Being in Argentina now, I find myself doing double-takes regularly and thanking God for my black skin so that they don’t see how red my cheeks flush every time strangers greet me with a kiss on the cheek – WHY CAN’T THIS BE A THING EVERYWHERE?

Argentina, whatever is in your sperm water, may your cup always runneth over. Amen.

Know a guy from one any of the countries I mentioned? Share this article with them and tell him to call me keep it up! From the bottom of our hearts and the top of our minds, we thank you.

Drop me a comment of countries you think should qualify for this list, so I can adjust my travel plans accordingly. For research purposes, of course. Cheers!

    Can we get location information (I mean, like, direct coordinates) to the young men featured in this post? *wipes droll off of face* thanks in advance!

    • I am in agreement, I need those coordinates. Let’s start with Milan as I am headed there this Friday 😂😂😂

      • Gloria Atanmo

        LOL, yes girl! They dress so well in the Fall season. Enjoy the… uhh, churches and stuff.

    • Gloria Atanmo

      I’m DYING. Lol, focus girlfriend, FOCUS!

    • Right…addresses, emails, numbers, lol! Better yet, Gloria, please take me with you next time you’re writing a similar post. I’ll hold your camera, carry your water, carry the men you’re taking pictures of.

  • jacklyn.

    p.s. I just had to jump through 16 hoops, that were on fire, in order to post that comment because #ineedanswers.

    • Gloria Atanmo

      Oh shoot, is Disqus being difficult. Please do explain, as I’ve loved using them for a comment thread, but don’t want readers jumping through fiery hoops to engage! Lmao

  • Oh no you didn’t!!
    The only qualm I have with this list of drop-dead gorgeous hunks is that non of them are dark-skinned!
    What happened to our chocolate kings? I know a couple nationalities who SHOULD be on that list ey?

    • Gloria Atanmo

      I LOVE MY CHOCOLATE KINGS! But in case you missed the first sentence and skipped straight to the bold-face font to see my choices, I prefaced by saying I can only make this list based on *my* travel experiences, and the reality is, Morocco is the only African nation I’ve visited — and they made the list.

      Cuba is also the only Caribbean Island I’ve made it to, and they’re also on the list. So while our tastes in men will be eclectic, it’s also okay to disagree.

      But I’m pretty stoked to visit more African countries in 2017, and I’ll update this list accordingly 😉

    • Bre.

      The same ones that exclude dark skinned women every chance they get? Stop being a clown.

    • KUDU

      The article most most likely written by a white person, who naturally prefers their own kind or similar. Stop expecting white people to find people of all races equally attractive, that is just asinine. Ideally we should have separate lists for different races or continents, so that no one can get butthurt over their race being left out.
      A white person making a list where they rate men of all races as equally attractive would have been disingenuous and worthless.

      • Krystalyn

        She literally said she was chocolate in the article… Also there’s a picture of her right there 👆 lol. On another note I’m a black woman who does not find black men attractive just because you’re a certain skin color does NOT mean you HAVE to be attracted to that.

    • Nikita Munnik

      Me too I think Nigerian men should be on the list

  • Ha, this is amazing! Thanks for sharing 😉

  • Fantastic Blog! Italian and Spanish men just melt my heart! And thank you for the accompanying pictures, Argentina has now moved itself to the top of my list!

  • Out of these photographs, the only ones I personally quite liked were the Spanish and Italian. I don’t really do the whole swooning over men for their looks thing – I tend to fall in love with tall, lanky dorks who fall over all the time, but that’s just me! Very funny article – not the sort of thing I’d usually read (for reasons stated above) but the comments on Facebook intrigued me. I really like your humorous and unashamedly honest style. 🙂

    • Caressa Clark

      If you like cute, not overtly sexy dorks, i would highly suggest Prague. The beer alone is worth the trip.

  • David X

    How … Eurocentric.

  • Ho! Ho! ‘Love it. They’re all gorgeous. Can I have them all!!
    Seriously though, my husband is German so my heart starts and stops right there. I like the cool glacial look but that Cuban guy sure looks pretty smoldering hot. That’s our son in 10 years time. OMG! I’d better look our door right now lol!

    p.s Ahem! Some German guys do keep their socks on, but I can assure you mine doesn’t! If anything it’s me with my snuggies… lol!

  • Malcolm Ohanwe

    this is list is incredibly white lol And European.

    • KUDU

      Do you expect a white person to make a list full of non-white people? Don’t be silly. Most whites prefer whites. If you have a problem with this then read lists made by blacks, Arabs, Indians, Hispanics, Asians, etc, as they will list non-white men as the most attractive.

    Agreed with most entries. I haven’t been to Argentina but know a couple of Argentine and Chilean men (and they are quite sexy). Italy had very fine men although Spanish men didn’t seem to do it for me strangely enough and funny enough the good looking men I saw in France were of Moroccan decent. Cuban men are good looking and ooze sex appeal as do the women but I find their overt sexuality a bit off-putting TBH

  • Gloria, I love you! Yes, I am a straight/cis female who loves men, but I could barely make it through this article I kept stopping to laugh so hard! So, my heart was torn between falling in men with every single man in this post, and you, my dear. In fact, reading yet another amazing post by you has inspired me to write something special which will include you (and a few other incredible bloggers). You truly are my hero!

  • Assimina Manidokokoli

    hey 3/10, i’m not doing bad haha (though one of these is the same nationality as me so it isn’t that hard)

  • Ronnie

    Yeah right. All of them are WHITE.

    • Bre.

      Not all. But they should be. Clown.

    • KUDU

      The article was written by a white person, so that makes sense. Most whites do not find non-whites attractive.

      • Ronnie

        Which is … cist

  • Keith Carlson

    I think you have to make an edit to your article here. Italians are Latins. They are the first Latins (from a place called Latinum).

    You state, “Italian men, much like Spanish/Latin ones…” is incorrect. If you’re referring to Spanish men and South American men then you can say Spanish/Latino. (Latin with an “o”.)

    Latin men refers to those from Italy, Spain, France, Portugal…

    Latino men refers to those from Latin America and the Caribbean. It’s confusing but leave it to us Americans for that.

    Nice blog!

    • Acts238

      Thank you. I was a little bummed out from her current post how she took away AAs African DNA. We have really deep identity issues in our community. Its hurtful for those of us whom know who we are. I appreciate everyone on here. God bless you all

  • Will Johnson

    Is scruffy the new black?

  • Itza Smith

  • Tony

    Very cliche-esque with a strong pro-mediterranean bias.

  • Caressa Clark

    We have the same taste in men. I haven’t been to all of these countries yet, but in my travels thus far I’d say Swedish men are the best looking white men on the planet, you just have to be aggressive with them. They will make eye contact but you have to make the first move. Sweden is good for meeting those tall blonde super model types that would never look twice at a black woman in the U.S☺..
    Icelandic men are cute.. they are not shy and made their interest very clear. German men were generally not feelin’ me… The Czech men are my favorite! The Czechs are cute and down to earth. The Czech men were feelin me even in broad daylight on the street and in stores. Not just in bars at night. Europe really does know how to make a black woman feel good, in more ways than one☺

    • xoxo555

      I love your answer!

    • Hahahaha! Love your comment, sis! Thanks for reading!

  • Yakup Sari

    Turkey is the best

    • I need to go back for a longer time! For research, of course. 🙂

  • Darklight1216

    Bit too much facial hair for my tastes, but the article was fun to read.

    • Haha, thanks for reading! I personally adore facial hair, so excuse the bias!

    Thank you. But I expected 1st place :). Greetings from Serbia
