Why does it seem like muscles are everything to most guys on here? (No, not another twink thread.)

    I've noticed that if there's a guy with average features, or even below average, the second he's muscled people are all over them like "WOW, YOU'RE THE HOTTEST GUY I'VE EVER SEEN. *__*" I mean, anyone can build muscle with work, but not everyone can just be inherently attractive.
    I just don't get it, thoughts?

    I've seen some REAL butterfaces on this site. Nice body but atrocious monkey/troll faces. Not attracted to that at all.

    You can always change your body but not your face.

    HungWhiteDick saidI dont understand the point you are trying to make. Muscles come in all shapes and sizes. The lack of it may indicate indeed the lack of exercise.


    I guess just that I don't understand why muscles change people's perception that much.

    I'm a twink so I don't care that much about muscles that much as long as the guy is healthy and has a nice face and personality.

    I think this explains it for me. A guy who has developed muscles had to work for them which is attractive and admirable. A guy who is inherently attractive (like a good face for example) is lucky. Besides you're on realjock.com, an attraction to fitness kinda just comes with the territory.

    It might be like that, but it's human instinct. I admit, I'm average, but I don't go around moping about it. I continue to eat healthy/workout to improve my body and the muscle guys give me insight on how I can obtain that. I don't get offended by guys who want muscles, that's their choice. My biggest attractions are intelligence/self-confidence anyways.

    I think it's our human tendencies, and in this case gay tendencies, that dictates what we find attractive in other guys. So when we view profile pics and see a good looking muscle guy, it catches our initial attention. This is no different from going to a club or social function and we see an attractive guy from afar.

    As for the average guys, those are the types of guys I prefer to chat and leave photo comments for. They tend (though not often) have great personalities, know when to joke or be serious and when meeting in person, there is a huge chance that you have made a good friend. icon_smile.gif

    It comes down to what you're attracted to.. face or body. I think for most guys, it depends on the combination of the two.

    Personally, I'm attracted to good looking guys with just a bit of definition. (Though I Love muscle guys too icon_redface.gif )

    Muscles are one of the biggest attractors in the gay community. I mean look at this website "Real Jock."

    Mankinds attraction to the perfect body has gone on for thousands of years though. Look at Greek sculptures on wikipedia. It's just kind of in our nature.
