    Can anyone else relate? A guy yawns and flexes his biceps... And you have the urge to go over to him and ask if you can give them a squeeze.



    What's that about? Thoughts?

    I think we all have an appreciation for a guy in good shape. I don't think there is anything strange about it at all. Fitness and a great bod is very alluring. Many of us like being involved in the whole process.

    Now I don't think about squeezing a guys bicep, maybe flexing my own, but we all have something we envision doing I'm sure.....

    I don't think it's only you. A lot of people (even straight men I believe) appreciate muscular bodies, but for us gays, we consider it beauty and are fascinated by it, hence muscle worship.

    Totally. Muscle worship has always been my thing. I've always wanted to have a guy do pull-ups and push-ups with me on his back. And curl me. I've found YouTube videos of exactly that and it is so hot.

    Thank God for the internet. Before it, I thought I was the only one.

    Maybe you want someone to protect you? (You were all thinking it...)

    Yeah, muscles are pretty and fun to touch
    But the thing is----underneath the muscles some guys are douchebags, while others are sweethearts
    And the muscle itself doesn't tell you which is which

    Because TV, Hollywood..

    and because we subconsciously are attracted to healthier and stronger mates, for survival and reproduction.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidWhen I'm in public I sometimes get asked to flex and have my biceps touched. If I'm wearing a form fitting T-shirt this happens now and then. I feel a bit ridiculous because I don't feel all that big. Guys with nineteen inch biceps certainly impress me quite a bit.



    Dude your build is awesome! Can I feel you flex? ;)

    I feel this is part of the appeal for me. I like the feeling of being protected by someone bigger than me. It's strange because I have learned how to defend myself but the thought of a big guy with a protective mindset and muscle build is so captivating. Other than that, I too have always had a big liking to muscle worship and am hoping one day, I'll get to try it. icon_smile.gif

    Fetishes are normal. A large percentage of gay men fetishize muscularity because it exaggerates the masculinity of the wearer.

    Lately I've noticed much more fetishizing of beards/facial hair as well, for likely the same reason.

    Oh that's interesting. I've had a goatee for years and never thought anyone would even notice!

    It means you find the the guy's body attractive. There's no point in questioning it! It's just the way it is!

    Can't say I have a muscle fetish, certainly not a muscle worshiper and don't like them flexing for me. I also do not feel protected by a bigger guy but they are more compatible with what I like.

    Sure, why not? icon_wink.gif


    Now if you only lived in Austin!!! ;) On another note I went to the sauna at my gym last night (golds on Anderson mill) and it was just me and another guy. I think he was gay but didn't know how to ask him if I could "give his arms a squeeze". Now, it was just him and me in there and I did have courage to introduce myself and start a conversation. I paid him lots of compliments, but what else should I have done?

    Ask him for tips on working those arms and perhaps if he's nice and friendly enough, you could tell him you need a workout buddy and if you could work out with him. icon_wink.gif

    i think for me it about the epitome of masculinity and the male form. Something about the proportion, lines and shape. When I see a guy shirtless with a great chest its very difficult for me not to walk over and squeeze his chest. With my exes that have decent bodies chest was always the first place to be grabbed when A kiss was shared

    I think I might be an unusual case of someone who wants to be muscular but who's not attracted to muscles, at least not in the ripped form that is the focus of muscle worship. I like an overall volume, good proportions (which are brought on by muscles) and some degree of fluff. I always feel silly when someone asks me to flex because I don't understand what the hype is about.

    I don't like guys with really big muscled steroids type Lol. I mean, as long as he looks toned, fit, skinny, it's all good. And no going to the gym 24/7 is kind of a turn off.
