    So I think theres a common misconception that having big muscles and working out 5 times a week makes a man straight-acting and somehow more desirable.Ofcourse nobody would want a skinny guy because skinny/slim guys are not man enough. I have read of guys seeking "muscular men who I can play basketball with and afterwards go to a straight bar without people giving us stares". So...does a mascular man equal straight acting???

    The only way to "act" straight is to fuck girls. I think of it as "straight4pay" because that's the only way I'd do it.

    But no, being muscular won't make you all super-macho and shit. It will just make you appear muscular.

    First, it's muscular, not mascular.

    Second, does skinny automatically equal effeminate? icon_rolleyes.gif

    You mean you wouldn't want a slim guy because you perceive them as not being manly?

    my husband and i had a roommate who was a skinny tattooed dye blond/blue boy who would bring home big muscles boys and fuck the life out of them. Those big muscles were nothing but big muscle marys.

    Now it really doesnt matter big muscle does not mean top or masculine as just being skinny does not mean bottom or femine.

    You know, it never fails... I walk into a leather bar, and see the man of my dreams standing across the bar. Shirt unbuttoned, hairy chest exploding off of his body, well-groomed beard, bright shiny septum ring, leather gloves surrounding his thick hands the size of my head drinking a glass of scotch on the rocks. I walk up and stand next to him, order 2 shots of bourbon, and slide one over to him. I put my hand around his waist and tell him "After you do this shot with me, I want you to take me out back and pound me like a Salvation Army drum." His pearly white teeth shine through his thick dark beard, hugging his chiseled jawline. He utters a "Bottoms up!" and a fucking purse falls out of his mouth. "Nevermind," I grumble, and sulk away. Talk about a boner kill. icon_cry.gif

    The OP spelled Muscular incorrectly once out of the three times he used the word. I am sure it was just a simple typo.


    And no there are some very effeminate muscular men. Muscles do not equal butch.


    but i totally loved "mascular" !
    should be added to the gay lexikon

    Sorry...But it is funny.
    Lesson of Da Day;
    Muscles dont necessarily mean butch,
    Skinny dont always mean fem.

    Don't get me started on being muscular. I used to be a trainer and I hold 3 national certs from NASM where I used to train at WSC. FIrst of all, I think its important to bring attention to the fact that muscle size has nothing to do with strength capacity or capacity for power. You cannot gauge someones neurological function by the way they look; it is that simple.


    Alot of bodybuilders are guys that just go on bodybuilding.com, get a t-shirt, spend inordinate amounts of time on bench, and don't work their legs at all. Anyone who wears a bodybuilding.com tshirt around the gym is a major tool. Alot of guys like to get into bodybuilding because they are insecure about how they look and their sense of inferiority and weakness.

    How manly is that.

    Good points, especially about some guys totally obsessed with their upper bodies and neglecting the legs. They look imbalanced. In fairness, some have based on their genetics smaller calf muscles, and even with work would not get all that large.

    On the strength related to muscle size, I would say there is a relation, but neurological function and tendon insertion point location also play a big role.

    not necessarily!

    some of the most visually attractive, macho,pumped up guys i have brought home with me have flung their legs up in the air or assumed the doggy style position when foreplay was over with.

    muscle mass does not equate to being a mcho top...but it could! icon_wink.gif

    I often wondered about that. I used to buy the bodybuilding magazines way back when, and I couldn't help but notice that some of them had "soft" feminine faces. Later, Joe Weider, the magazine publisher, admitted that gays liked to watch bodybuilding contests, but the bodybuilders weren't gay. Still, I couldn't help but notice that the musclemen all seemed to have a body fetish, liked a clean, shaven body (including armpit), engaged in exhibitionist (sometimes gay) posing, liked brief briefs that were silky, shiny, glittery or had leopardskin or zebraskin patterns, worshipped Mae West (a gay icon)--all qualities that were attributable to gays. Hmmm. Were most of the bodybuilders gay?
