    Are you more attracted to dudes when they have their shirt on or their shirt off. Another thread had two attractive guys in the OP one with his shirt on and one with his shirt open. I noticed that I find guys more attractive with their shirts on or torso covered. I remember being at a club a while back and talking to this guy. Later on I ran into him with his shirt off. His attitude completely changed. I think he thought I would go crazy seeing his nicely chiseled body. I found it funny that I found him less attractive with his shirt off. Something about a muscular body in shirt turns me on more than a nice body fully on display. At least for smooth guys. I think all hairy guys should go shirtless for the rest of their lives.

    Well, I totally understand how you feel, but I guess it just depends on the guy. I was in Amsterdam over the summer and the trend (straight and gay) is the deep V t-shirts. On lean or muscled guys, I loved it. Made me constantly at attention. A unbuttoned shirt can be hot, too. But if there's a chance of touch, like on a crowded dance floor, shirtless all the way.

    Well I live at the beach, so shirtless is the norm. I'm used to seeing all my friends, neighbors, and everyone in town without shirts. Can't imagine what it would be like to live in a place where everyone's all covered up.

    Well tastes vary, but I remember being in a tourist town a while back and two or three college guys were in the crowd with their t-shirts off and tucked in their back pockets. Nice. They looked comfortable.

    I'm from Alaska. You don't want to imagine it. It's probably a reason I've got as many issues as I have.

    I thought I was the only one who prefers guys wearing shirts. I know I'm in the minority but I think shirtless guys in a club or online screams desperation.

    It all depends on the body -- I love to see a great body uncovered, though I admit a hot guy often looks very enticing in a tank top. But still, my vote is shirtless!

    I always prefer a guy with a shirt on. Keep it classy, fellas. A shirtless pic is a dime a dozen.

    No need to let it all hang out IMHO.

    A nice shirt showing a guy's nice physique, and open enough at the top to show some chest hair peeking out is sexy to me.

    Duh. Attractive guys, shirt off. Mandatory.

    Unattractive guys, well, whatever the hell they please. As long as they're working on it.

    I think everyone should go totally nude all the time (weather permitting). Cause if they ain't sexy with clothes on, taking them off isn't going to improve anything.

    I think there are some times when wearing a shirt is very appropriate and other times when not wearing a shirt is okay. Some examples of this would be during the summer time on the beach, or when exercising outside when it's hotter or just walking around downtown on a hot day is fine to me.

    I find it rather demoralizing and objectifying when gay guys advertise themselves in a club or bar because to me, they are just looking for attention because they probably have nothing to offer up then their bodies. Sure, I enjoy a nice body to look at, but there's more to look at then just a nice body.

    I'm not going to talk to a guy at a bar or club with his shirt off because often times they are making out with ten different guys in one hour, and that's disgusting--especially when they're all sweaty. I also don't think it's hygienic or appropriate when guys show extra skin or go shirtless at a health club like a gym. That's just asking for attention, and that's not sexy to me.

    Maybe I'm just the minority here, but I enjoy a guy who have more class then just being a piece of meat that is up for grabs by ever wanting slut out there.

    Cover it up in public places guys, and keep is classy(except for what I mentioned above). Some intellect and conversation will get your further in life then a dirty drunken sweaty make out session or jerk off session in the bathroom.

    I'm more attracted to guys who have a mind and use it rather then superficial physical appearances. Most of the time, guys like that are just flat out stupid dopes who have nothing to offer and just want youth buy them a drink and make out with them when 20 other people have been fishing for buried treasure. I'll pass on that.

    Wear shirts. I wear shirt. You wear shirts. We'll get along just fine.

    SHIRTS!

    Shirt on. Everyone likes a little mystery and when you give someone too much up front, you can kill the attraction. A couple of unbuttoned buttons can be a nice teaser though. It makes you want to see more. But lately I've noticed I seem to go craziest for guys who have their dress shirts buttoned all the way up except the very top button. One guy I do business with always wears a button down shirt and a t-shirt underneath. It drives me nuts because I can tell he has a rocking body but with that damn t-shirt I can't even tell if he's hairy or not. It just make me want to undress him even more!

    Also, when a man goes without a shirt a lot it silently says something about him that is not positive......he needs validation. And that is not sexy. icon_confused.gif

    I believe it was an old Samuel R Delany novel about cultural clashes, that featured an all-male planet, where opaque clothing was morally wrong. Even their space suits were transparent.

    Hey. Don't argue with Samuel R Delany. Any man who can write three-page sentences that are grammatically correct, can explode your mind in an argument.

    When I'm in my own house, I'm usually shirtless...regardless of who's around (and also usually in workout/compression shorts which I use as underwear).

    If you're so uncomfortable in you own skin that you have to cover it up, then you might need to ask yourself a few questions. icon_wink.gif

    Maybe its what I do for a living but I am not that excited by a naked body. I've seen thousands. Except for hairy guys but they are kind of wearing clothes already lol

    I'm fine in my own home being shirtless, and have no issue with others at home doing the same. Nude beaches, outdoor activities, and such is fine.

    Everything else, clubs, bars, social events, at the gym(if it's even permitted) not okay. I'm okay with my body enough to be shirtless at times. Obviously I'm not mormon or shower in my clothes--some guys do this with swimming trunks and that's weird to me, but whatever.

    All I'm saying is that to cover up at the apropriate times, and don't make a spectacle of yourself. I'm confident enough that if I took off my shirt in a club or bar that I would get some attention. I don't have a super ripped body, and I'm not in the greatest shape right now, but I know I can be when I start putting myself to do it, I'll be more confident, but I don't want people to look at me and start thinking about what they want to do to me, or have me to do them.

    When guys walk around shirtless, they are advertising themselves as a sex object, and that's trashy. It's basically saying "Hey, look at me!" "Give me attention" "Look at my body" There's nothing there beyond the superficial.

    What questions do I need to ask myself exactly? I'm confused about that.

    Sounds to me like I don't need to do that, but feel free to clarify anytime you want. I love a good debate or semantics argument any day.

    I'm not one to show off anyway, and that seems to be an issue in the gay community. Props to those of you who do. More collective power to you. Unless I'm at a beach, outdoors in the sun, or something that warrants me not having a shirt on, I'm keeping it on, thanks.

    Shirt on but with some reveals like a tight fit around the biceps.
