In Log Horizon 2 - Episode 13, Marielle gives Naotsugu candies made of Coconia Fruit and according to the Flavor Text:

Coconia Fruit: A southern fruit used for many applications, such as making various dishes and drinks. If you feed them to someone on Valentine's Day, you may find out who they ♡♡

And as the episode goes, who ever eats it shouts out what they love. When Naotsugu eats them, he only says this much before being interrupted by a kick from Akatsuki:

O Pa ...nti-

It looks a lot like Panties and since it was Akatsuki hitting him, I'm pretty sure it was something perverted. So what was he about to say? Maybe it was mentioned in the manga or someone with Japanese Knowledge can explain it.

Naotsugu 1 Naotsugu 2

As you have guessed, Naotsugu was about to say おパンツ, or panties. However, he was kicked by Akatsuki (who went through the trouble of leaving the kitchen momentarily just to kick him) before he managed to finish his sentence.

This also matches the running gag where he would be kicked by Akatsuki, or when she is not around, he would have to dodge some natural phenomenon conveniently occurs before he manages to finish saying anything pervert. The first case frequently occurs in the first few episodes of the first season (among other occurences here and there), and the second case can be seen 8 minutes into episode 2 of the second season.

As nhahtdh's answer states, he was about to say おパンツ, or panties.
This doesn't necessarily have anything to do with what kind of girls Naotsugu likes, since Akatsuki explains at around 19:19 on the same episode that the effects of the fruit aren't limited to romantic love:

Akatsuki at minute 19:19, "So it isn't limited to romantic love".

As such, Naotsugu was just gonna express his love for panties, and not necessarily answer Marielle's question. Much like Shiroe had expressed his love for curry before, not answering directly any question addressed to him, and as Rudy had just expressed his love for the whole group, without even being asked anything.
