I heard that many women think men's bodies are repulsive, but since they are not as visual as men, they go for personality (and some times money) over looks. So to them, its not as important. I was wondering. I find my own body repulsive- although I do have nice legs.
depends on the body.
aside from the fact that the male form has been exalted in classical art and sculpture for the last 500 years or so?
Generally speaking, no, the male body isn't repulsive. The genitalia can be a bit awkward, it's designed for function rather than grace, but most men's bodies aren't gross.
I definitely do not find all men's bodies to be repulsive. That's ridiculous.
TVFH has it.
I'd say many women can be just as visually enticed as men.
Men's genitalia stops being as "awkward" when you consider that a woman's clitoris is just a penis that didn't fully develop.
Well, just try to date people other than yourself.
Women aren't as visual as men? Thats a relief. No more gym for this cat.
what part of this is funny?
In minor hijack:
I just saw an article about pupil dilation being an indicator of not only arousal but sexual orientation. We've long known that the pupils dilate when a human is aroused however a recent study has confirmed it.
Subjects were shown pictures of naked people pleasuring themselves.
The results were mostly as predicted :
In straight men the pupils dilated only at the sight of a naked woman
Gay men only at the sight of a naked man
Gay women only at the sight of a naked woman...
The only one that was a surprise was straight women: ours dilated at the sight of naked men and naked women.
For some reason it made me chuckle to read it.
I guess 'd'uh' was my first thought.
when i was 20 i had a male roommate. i remember him commenting that he didn't understand why men's magazines were full of beautiful women and women's magazine's were full of beautiful women :)
Nah, I disagree. Men's genitalia is dangly and it bobbles around. That can be awkward.
I actually pondered further and wondered if it isn't 'beauty' itself that we're attracted to? I wonder how the experiment would go if the same people were tested with samples of scent, flavor and sound as well as non-erotic imagery.
But it is sort of adorable in a 'ahm nekkid and I don't care' kind of way.
awkward = balls.
however, no, i don't find it repulsive. fully depends on the dude, however. :P
I think if a female finds a male body repulsive then she probably isn't into men to begin with.
Some men I see I find them repulsive, but that could be because they are "unkept" hair coming out of every orifice flowing out of their shirt collars necks, back and what not. Maybe super morbidly obese and have rolls that make you wonder how they would ever be capable of "doing the deed"
Working at a doctors office I see operative reports about the sores that these people have due to the folds of skin and not bathing properly or drying off or just skin rubbing on skin- now that is repulsive. Maybe because I know what some of these people have under the clothes makes me want to run away!- this goes for females too.
Now there are some males I would say are as far from repulsive as possible and would love to see their entire body.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder so what might repulse me may excite someone else. I know some men like the bigger women, and some women like bigger men.
I find a ton of body art to be repulsive as well, some people love it.
I don't care much for facial hair either. I also have this thing for bald men, while some women are repulsed by that.
In general though a man who keeps himself clean, combs his hair if he has it and removes it from noses, ears and back then we are good!
haha yeah I don't think anyone would disagree with that.
Though I'm not sure seeing boobs bounce all over the place would be extremely attractive, either. Especially big boobs that really go all over the place.
I find BOTH sets of "junk" less than beautiful. I'm convinced that's why my eyeballs aren't next to my vagina.
But that being said... I find the male anatomy to be awesome. AWESOME.
Bex, you just reminded me... a friend of my husband's (and don't ask me why he was talking about this) described the look of his wife's vagina as over-cooked roast beef.
Marinate on that.
Ah yes, the ol' beef curtains thing. I've heard that, too.
