    What is your body type in a man?
    Muscular: vigorously, forcefully expressed muscle body or
    Atlhetic: well defined, ripped, leaned body

    I know that some people would say: "it depends on the personality bla, bla, bla, however, I wonder myself sometimes as my taste in men is changing. I used to see myself attractive to more muscular type of guys, like the old saying "the bigger the better" but right now, I find guys more attractive when they are more toned, defined bodies. So I am curious to find out what do you guys prefer in general. Let me knowicon_rolleyes.gif

    I'd have to say athletic, I don't really go for the whole big muscle thing.

    A nice hybrid of both...

    Or a fashion model body, which is nice a lean.

    Appropriate for the body type. There isn't one standard that applies to my eyes.

    Athletic. A tight, lean and defined body is far sexier to me. Far more maneuverable than a big muscular guy, though I'm sure there are benefits to that, too.

    You are athletic or defined and you look Um Um good. I vote for athletic. Muscles sag when you get older.

    Since you've taken the 'blah, blah, blah' out of the equation, then I'd have to say a combination:
    ripped/defined regardless of whether muscle size is 'athletic' or big.

    To me it's not an either/or thing. I appreciate them both.

    Muscular, erring on the side of beefy/bearish. Tons of definition does nothing for me.

    Well, I find it funny that people smaller than me (and i mean in muscle mass) would consider themselves muscular, where as I would consider myself an athletic body (though I am pretty compact so i guess im a weird midget hybrid, lol)

    I would say.... hot is hot.

    BTW, id rather have a guy with some imperfections on his body than a "models" body that people consider perfect. I want someone wit ha few scrapes and bruises. Means he's living, i guess, and having fun. I just think the whole model thing is overblown.

    Different strokes for different folks is my main point, i guess ;) And we all need to vary our strokes, haha

    Athletic all the way. Muscular is fine as long as it is not bodybuilder muscular.
