Damon fans, you might want to sit down for this. Sultry Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder sat down with Women’s Health Magazine to answer “5 Juicy Questions” for the July/August issue, which just hit newsstands.

In addition to providing a few pointers on how to get over a heartbreak (wine, meditation, exercise, and friends; now we know how he’s recovering from the split with Nina Dobrev!), the questions reveal some of the gorgeous actor’s sensuous preferences, including how to seduce him. According to Ian, “You know when you stand next to someone and there’s an electrical feeling. You feel that connection and your heart beats fast.” Our hearts are racing! Ian also answered what he likes a woman to wear to bed and whether or not he likes perfume. You better believe we’re taking notes!

According to Ian, he likes to sleep naked, he’s a gourmet cook, and his bedroom spirit animal is a sleek black panther. Rawr. Excuse us while we pack a suitcase and book a flight to Atlanta …

Pick up this month’s issue of Women’s Health to read the full interview, and stay tuned here on Wetpaint Entertainment for the latest news about Ian and his co-stars on The Vampire Diaries.
