    The obvious being that you have sex.

    If two people are unaware of a mutual sexual attraction, how can they tell?

    From a distance, things like flirty looks, constant staring and then looking away, maybe some lip biting or winking. Chances are, if there's something there then you'll know about it in some way.

    Up close, maybe things like giggling, looking or sounding kind of nervous, flirting via touch and stuff like that.

    It's hard to know sometimes but there are often some clues in our body language. For men I've noticed that they will often highlight their physical strength and stature by walking or standing a certain way. Prolonged staring is another give away as well, and smiling. This may just be an act of friendliness though so it's difficult to tell with some signs.
