    Moles, scars, burn marks, crossed eyes, hunchbacks, baldness, elephantitis, etc.

    Aren't imperfections what make us us? Aren't some imperfections just downright wooddy inspiring?

    Personaly, I think a glass eye is the shiznit. You may not agree specifically on that one, but, really, examine your conscious and then post about whether or not perfection is what you seek. If it is, then, hell, wouldn't anybody who's perfect do?

    Sometimes, nothing beats getting fucked by a really ugly man.

    Wow, two posts in and this is already creepier than the thread with all the dead baby jokes.

    Well, almost.

    I have to know someone for a long while before their imperfections become sexy. And even then, there ARE dealbreakers.

    OW: Unless it's an ugly man with a glass eye. Now, that's hot!

    I knew a girl in high school who had a giant red birthmark across the left side of her face. She was really pretty, but used to get made fun of all the time for her oddity. Then, when Dermablend cosmetics came out, she started covering up the birthmark, but then everyone called her Doughface. Poor thing.

    Sometimes, despite my repugnance to all things violent and ugly,
    I can't seem to pry myself free from certain mutilated members of
    society.
    So long as the lights are out, or I have my face pressed into a wall,
    what does it matter if the bloke is circumcised? '-)

    Another one of my favourite deformities in a feller: PEYRONIE'S DISEASE!
    Coupled with a case of Alopecia and... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    The truth is everyone is imperfect somehow.

    There is a kind of oriental pottery that is absolutely beautiful works of high art ( the wabi-sabi aesthetic - that which is admired and coveted for its uncontrived rustic beauty, imperfections, and natural flaws) - even perfect; just before the potter finishes the piece he will introduce a small flaw so that the inperfection makes the piece even more beautifully a part of this inperfect world.

    People are like that. Their flaws simply make them more human and beautiful.

    I once dated a blind woman who was incredibly oriented to her other senses - which she used to her best advantage. I once spent a night with an amputee who was probably one of the most giving lovers I have ever been with.

    Some flaws are small, some are huge, but we all have them; it is how we respond to them that really defines us.

    PS - Yes, I have had a couple glasses of Gentleman Jack tonight.

    Perfection is a boring, complacent constant.

    I'd pick a deeply flawed -- but highly motivated -- guy over a "perfect" guy any day.

    Sigh. I'm kidding about the ugly fuck; well most of the time. Cocteau's film is genius, one of my favorites, and describes the subjectivity of beauty quite well.

    I've never, ever found what most call perfection appealing. Years ago I was assigned to write 10,000 words on the aesthetics of mannequins. At the time -- I don't know about now -- the ones considered most beautiful by the fashion industry were designed by Adele Rootstein.

    Rootstein told me that what made her mannequins beautiful was the defects of their models -- the oddity of features that other designers often corrected to make the finished product "perfect." If any of you have been unlucky enough to have the experience of photo modeling, you probably heard the same thing. The very thing you may dislike most about yourself -- my excessively long legs, for example -- may be exactly what your agent and clients like most.

    The disruptive feature also has the interesting effect of causing the appearance to change. This is usually attributed to the way the gaze seeks symmetry. It keeps trying to restore it, but the asymmetrical feature keeps asserting itself. In this way "interesting" and "beautiful" enter an alliance.

    I find the Abercrombie-and-Fitch standard completely unappealing. It is like the triumph of vanilla over oddity, which to my mind is why they have to be depicted in erotic situations. Without an interesting scene, they'd put the eye to sleep.

    The obsession with perfection also usually indicates obsession with self-improvement, which in its extreme is almost always narcissistic.

    Thank you, Aero. I especially enjoyed the video of the 72-year-old man inflating his penis implant.

    I think men with dodgy knees can be very appealing.

    That may get OW to hobble on over redhead, but playing up your eccentricities might work better!

    I may be in London in a few months, red. Does your bike have a sidecar?

    I once had a crush on one of my professors who was a beautiful man...but the thing about him that, for some reason, just drove me wild was the scar he had on his face. Not sure why...but that totally did it for me.

    Strange...

    I have had a couple guys who were very turned on by my scars... a couple of scrapnel zippers and two pucker wounds, not to mention several scars from sports injuries and a very mis spent youth.

    I always thought they were ugly, and if I don't wear a shirt they frequently draw enough stares to make me uncomfortable; but my partner doesn't seem to mind at all so... screw em.

    I think scars hint at a life that's had some excitement and adventure in it, souveniers of a life lived interestingly.

    I find scars quite sexy as they show a man has actually lived in his body and experienced some life. Also find lines around the eyes sexy(again, has to do with experience).

    Big noses (esp. on Jewish guys). Male pattern baldness (the symmetric forehead kind). Stoner-like eyelids (but not on burnouts).

    This thread reads like a love letter.

    To me.
