There are some seriously great perks to working at Cosmo (getting paid to research sex is not too shabby), but one of the best things about this gig is the annual bachelor search.
By Zoë Ruderman
Every year, we go on the hunt for the 51 hottest single men in the country (one from every state and Washington, D.C.) then bring them to New York City for a fun party, where we crown the Cosmo Bachelor of the Year.

But we like the bachelors for more than just their hot bodies. We also love being able to tap into their brains and find out what men really think about everything from hookups and relationships to the sexiest thing a woman can wear and what drives them nuts about the opposite sex.

Here are the fascinating facts about men that we learned from last year's batch of boys:
Nearly all the bachelors (almost 90 percent) said they'd be psyched if a woman asked them out because that kind of confidence is sexy.
The female body part that turns men on the most is her butt.

The hottest outfit a woman can wear: athletic shorts and a sports bra. (That look beat out jeans and a tee, a black dress, and a mini skirt and sexy top!)
Every single bachelor said that if a woman cheated, they'd want her to fess up. But 13 percent of them said if they messed around, they'd keep it a secret.
Half said that they're favorite sex position is doggie-style, but woman on top came in second, with more than one in three dudes naming that their number one hook-up pose.
It drives men nuts when women are moody or high-maintenance. (More so than when we're clingy or indecisive.)
The number one factor a guy looks at when considering if a girlfriend is wifey material? Whether or not she's supportive of his goals, and she shares his values.
And here's where you come in. We need your help looking for the 2011 crop of bachelors. If you know a man who totally deserves to be a Cosmo Bachelor, nominate him here. (Did we mention that the guy you nominate could win $10,000?) And if you don't happen to know any cute, available dudes-well, start looking! Yeah, it's a tough job, but we think you can handle it.
