    Many guys seem to be all over muscular guys with bulging biceps, a rippling chest, solid chunks of muscles all around...i honestly dont get it..its actually a turn off to some extent...what is it about muscles that turns u guys on?

    Am i the only one that like thin lean guys, or thin, skinny, smooth guys who just act normal.. (not really into femmes,not all twinks or smooth thin guys are femmes)....?

    I guess it's just a matter of how much 'ripped' someone is.

    I personally think that bodybuilders look disgusting (not to offend anyone)

    Different strokes for different folks. Personally I don't find bodybuilders all that attractive either, but if we all had the same tastes the world would be a pretty boring place.

    Oh yeh, now I get your drift...fair enough, I find nothing attractive about a over huge possibly steroid using gym freak.

    @nwphx1972; that reminds me of a quote "if we all wanted the same thing, we might as well be straight" lol icon_lol.gif

    I agree with Moudi, heavily muscled men are an actual turn off for me. I prefer men that are fit and lithe, not bulked up. My favourite body type? Swimmers.

    I do find some muscles attractive. So are you, Moudi, saying that you find guy who are fat, chubby, or skinny attractive?

    I do not find body builders attractive because it is too artificial looking. Do the body builders naturally have their arms stick out that far, or is it a way for them to look bigger. Either or way I think it is ugly.

    I think a nice toned athletic body is perfect. The thing is I respect a guy with a great body because I know it takes a lot of hard work, discipline, and dedication. I think those are sexy traits. I just like the lean muscles, not the jacked up ones.

    It is easy to be fat, chubby, or even skinny, but it take a lot of work to have muscles. I'm jealous.

    it all depends on the individual guy and how he carries his body. i can get into muscles on some guys if they wear it well but often it can just seem high maintenance or even gross. moudi, i think your body looks absolutely killer.

    Something tells me this would have been good in the gay body armour ego thread too, but it makes it's own valed point. I'm not terribly fond of hug muscles and guy whose in love with his mirror image more than he honestly loves himself, or his partner or whatever. I like guys who have nice lean muscles from working at their job or hobby, play lots of sports, or workout at a sensible level that I can keep up with, more or less. If you seen a sexy construction worker and how his muscles grow together emphasizing their frame, or an athlete with a sexy back or legs from constantly conditioning themselves, than you know what I'm talking about.

    Sure, I have lots of respect for weightlifters and bodybuilders who take it to another level, but can't imagine being with one whose sacrificed more than time and energy to the process. I hope I don't sound like a jerk?

    You guys talking about cutting your testicles are making me hurt for you. I really hope that you're actually talking about the scrotum. It's painful enough when you nick the sack, but to go deep enough to hit a testicle? Ouch. Please, please tell me you mean the scrotum.

    As for shaving, I trim because I get ingrown hairs on the area above the parts, and use a razor on the sack and the shaft. No matter how clean things are, not too many people like pubic hair (a.k.a. dental floss) stuck in their teeth.

    I'm sure you're far from the only, as we can already see in this thread. It's always on an individual basis with me. I continue to amaze myself at times when I'm randomly attracted to someone that I previously would have thought improbable.

    If we're only discussing a guy's body(disregarding the neck up) then I would generally fall into the category that really likes lean(like, reallly lean) muscular guys. Usually not bodybuilder huge, but proportional to the frame. Sometimes skinny works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes a little pudge works! But usually what gets the the hot-and-botheredest is the really lean muscular/sinewy types on a particularly interesting, proportional frame. icon_twisted.gif

    That being said, I have to say that the whole neck up area is what attracts me the most.. and the way a man carries himself.

    i agree. In my experience, I have liked all kinds of guys that I would have never thought were my type. So much of it is face and confidence. I can remember sleeping with a few muscular guys who flexed ridiculously the whole time and posed in the bedroom mirror while assuming I would not notice. Same with chubby or skinny guys who talk about how not perfect they are while getting naked.
    If a guy is easy going and is worrying about the perfect kiss rather than the perfect 6 pack, I am good.

    I almost started a thread about this.

    I'm actually quite attracted to pictures of big bodybuilder style men. In real life, I'm attracted to all kinds of different body styles, and usually it's a man's face, personality, etc that turn me on more.

    Of course, if I'm checking out the guy in the gym, that I'm never going to talk to or sleep with, and he's got big 18 inch arms, and I can tell that he's got a nice 6 or 8 pack, with some nice big quads and hamstrings, I get a little turned on. There's something about a big muscular guy that gets me going (mentally).

    Maybe it's internal homophobia (or other stuff discussed in the Armour thread). To me, muscles are the ultimate physical form of power and masculinity, which is a turn on for me. And I don't like big muscley scarey ass women, but that's because they're not men.

    As others said above, at the end of the day, different strokes for different folks.

    I like guys that are lanky and muscled. The big bulky monsters have never done it for me. When I think back to the body types of both of my long-term lovers and the men I'm attracted to, it's always the same.

    That said, since my track record with them sucks, maybe I should be attracted to something else. Hot l'il short guys, anyone?

    Hrmmm, guess I'm in the minority then. I do like those big boys. What I don't like though is the fake tanning solution they apply for the contests. That, paired with the massive frame, makes them look unnatural. If the guy is naturally tanned, that's awesome, or even if they aren't, that's just as awesome.

    My apologies; I'm just a muscle whore.

    But I do agree with Rocco; gymnasts' physiques are quite truly considered to be to me the pinnacle of sexiness, especially since they're shorter men.

    All the physiques that everyone mentioned they like does require a certain amount of discipline and training, and that I always respect and commend.

    I like muscles in kind of a Classic/ancient Mediterranean art sort of way. A guy doesn't have to be huge, but I love when a man's physique kind of "flows" in that ineffable aesthetically pleasing sort of way. This can range from a guy that's slim and defined to a bigger guy. I just think it's weird when guys get very out of proportion [read- huge upper body, bird legs]. This is also why a poor quality dick or body shot is not that big of a turn on.

    Do you like how I tried to make my personal sexual preferences seem a lot nobler and cultured? icon_wink.gif

    Men come in all shapes and sizes. Some guys look great lean, some with a bit of muscle, some with a lot. If he looks like he can't move normally because of his muscle then I think it's too far.

    +1 on the lean, lithe appearance.

    Not so much for the ripped and bulgy-muscles thing.

    Oh, yeah, that was neat. Btw, if you have a fatal accident, can I use your chest for a rug for my den?

    Personally I like lean and reasonably muscular rather than the bodybuilder look. A decent six-pack and some nice biceps are good -- but that doesn't necessarily mean 18-inch ceps and a totally shredded body.

    In terms of height, no big deal either way to me, but I guess I prefer shorter to medium height guys rather than tall.
