Sexy Foreign Phrases: Expressions of Love and Lust in French, Italian and Spanish (and Hungarian)
by Mariella Krause

Have you ever noticed how much sexier things sound when they're said in a foreign language? Given that fact, you could probably seduce somebody just by whispering the ingredients of a croque-monsieur in their ear -- provided they don't know their jambon from their fromage.

But if you really want to sound impressive, you'll want to be able to do more than just recite a grocery list. You'll want words filled with amor, fuego, and passione. And we're here to help.

We've translated some essential phrases into the most fantastically sexy and romantic languages we could find. And then we also translated them into Hungarian. Why? Because the founder of our company is Hungarian and offered to translate. Besides, you never know when you might be in Budapest and find your soulmate.

So read up, and soon you too will be speaking the international language of love.

When You Want To Start a Conversation
Say you're in a bar in Milan. You see someone attractive across the room. Start with one of these. Of course, when they start speaking to you fluently in Italian, you're on your own.

Hello, beautiful (or handsome). Can I buy you a drink?

  • French: Bonjour, ma belle (mon beau). Pourrais-je vous offrir a boire?
  • Spanish: Hola, guapo. ¿Puedo comprarle una bebida?
  • Italian: Ciao, bella (bello). Posso offrirti qualcosa da bere?
  • Hungarian: Szia jokepu. Fizethetek Neked egy piat?

    Would you like to dance with me?

  • French: Voulez-vous danser avec moi?
  • Spanish: ¿Gustas a bailar con mí?
  • Italian: Balliamo?
  • Hungarian: Akarsz velem tancolni?

    Has anyone ever told you you look like ______.

  • French: Est-ce qu'on t'as déjà dit que tu ressembles vachement à Gérard Depardieu?
  • Spanish: Sabes que tu parecerse Antonio Banderas?
  • Italian: Ti hanno mai detto che sei identica ad Sophia Loren?
  • Hungarian: Mondtak mar neked, hogy ugy nezel ki mint a Zsazsa Gabor?

    When You Need a Handy Pick-Up Line
    Let's be honest: glib pick-up lines sound cheesy in English. But hey, you never know. They might sound fabulous when uttered in a romance language-especially if the recipient doesn't know what you're saying.

    Come here often?

  • French: Venez-vous ici souvent?
  • Spanish: ¿Viene aquí a menudo?
  • Italian: Vieni spesso qui?
  • Hungarian: Gyakran jarsz ide?

    Is it hot in here, or is it just you?

  • French: Fait-il chaud ici, ou c'est juste vous?
  • Spanish: ¿Hace calor, o es tu?
  • Italian: Fa cosí caldo qui o è la tua presenza?

  • Spanish: Béseme, yo hablo español.
  • Italian: Baciami, parlo italiano.
  • Hungarian: Csokolj meg, en beszelek magyarul.

    When You Want To Express Your Affection
    These sweet nothings are definitely not first-date material. When you're a little further along in your relationship, however, you may use them with abandon to make your partner swoon.

    I love you.

  • French: Je t'aime.

  • Italian: Sai cos'ň un accordo prematrimoniale?
  • Hungarian: Akarsz csinalni hazassag elotti szerzodest?

    When You're Not Afraid of Getting Slapped
    Okay, so nobody really slaps anymore. But these bon mots will leave little doubt of your intentions. Use them wisely.

    I'd sure like to see you naked!

  • French: Je voudrais vous voir à poil!

  • Italian: C'é un party nelle mie mutande e sei invitata (invitato)!
  • Hungarian: Az en nadragomban tortenik valami amire szivesen meghivnalak!

    When It's Time To Get Down To Business
    Okay. So it's time. You've gotten past all the formalities and it's just the two of you. (Or three, whatever). This is where the real seduction begins.

    I want you (desperately). "Desperately" is optional; use as needed to indicate urgence).

  • French: J'ai envie de toi (désespérément).

  • Spanish: Seguro que trajo los condoms!
  • Italian: Certo che ho portato i preservativi!
  • Hungarian: Termeszetesen hoztam gumit!

    When It's Time To Put Your Clothes Back On
    No more awkward moments when the fun is over and it's time to go home! Now you'll know the perfect thing to say for the perfect end to a romantic evening.

    That was amazing. Will you please untie me now?
