    This idea came up in another thread by a poster and tend to agree. He was saying that a guy that is really into his body and musclature is bi or at the very least a few shots from being bi. I tend to agree but maybe that's because exactly how I am...thoughts? Are there any truly str8 muscular guys out there that are truly into their bodies?

    That's a pretty broad stroke. Believe it or not, a lot of guys want to impress women, too. Men aren't the only ones that like to look at muscle.

    Although, here's to wishing and hoping icon_cool.gif

    Sounds like wishful thinking....

    I can totally appreciate and can "be in to" a beautiful female body, but it don't make me in the least bit bi-for-female.

    Straight men can and do appreciate the male physique....I think its just still taboo, to admit it for the exact reason of your theory.....fear of being labeled "gay".

    Not every good looking well built man is gay or bi fellas.....

    Straight men do want to look good for the ladies.

    That being said there is a saying I've heard a lot from my girlfriends...

    "If it weren't for gay boys, I'd never see visible abdominal muscles"

    So true.
    I've heard women say "With a bod like that, he's GOT to be gay".

    I regularly read another forum (musclegrowth.org) where there are a number of men on there that really like muscle, but still identify as straight. They might even get off on muscle, but don't want to have sex with men, and enjoy sex with women.

    No, my little brother and all his buds- amazing bodies and they wouldn't be seen dead in a gay bar. My little brother, little more free wheeling, he has stripped at the gay bar, but again would never be caught naked with a guy.

    NYC is a bit different then the homes and the corn fed boys of them in the mid-west.

    Straight men know what it is to be attractive, and they feel good about themselves if they look good.

    They probably also get kicks out of the idea of being sexually attractive, and enjoy the status that goes with it.

    I think smalltownboy summed it up nicely. Gay or not, I think guys that are into their bodies/appearance have an appreciation for the human body, in general.

    God I wish this were true. However, this being a gay site (sight? I always confuse the two...) You probably aren't gonna get many straight responses.

    I don't think its about appreciation of the male form so much as its about showmanship. But maybe that's the 4H / FFA kid in me talking.

    Unfortunately men have a different way to think than women. In general guys are more superficial but of course there are some exceptions. Being that said, straight guys dont have much to be worried about, women will always pay more attention to their personalities when it comes to have a relationship. A hot body will not easily convince a woman to get laid that night, however....a hot body seems to be all it takes to convince a guy to get laid that night, right there.

    Now talking about your point specifically, there might be some relationship between muscular guys and bi/homosexuality. If some guys cant help admiring their own body then how would they feel when they see other guys with even better bodies? That could perfectly get their attention sexually but of course Im not implying this is a general rule, it just sounds logical to some extent.

    Summarizing, gay guys take more care about the way they look, they tend to be obsessed with their appearance, also, recently they even tend to be obsessed about masculinity( it is not easy to find flamboyant muscular guys at all) . Basically we are confusing women, and every time they see someone really physically appealing, they go like "he is way too hot... he has to be gay".

    At the end of the day we are all victims of our evolutionary biology. Back in the day of the cave man having muscles and being strong was essential to your survival, and it determined your social ranking. All guys, gay, str8 or bi, size each other up and look to other guys for validation. Totally hot, but not necessarily an indication of sexual orientation. I know alot of guys that totally get off on other guys checking out their muscles, etc, but would probably cry and run to mommy if you whipped out your wang! This is where their other evolutionary trait takes over: reproduction - boy on boy doesn't make baby, and they are socially programmed to make babies, even though the last thing this planet needs is more freaking mouths to feed.

    I've heard this before. Question: How do you (or socio-anthropologists) KNOW this to be true? It is all assumption, as far as I have read. No real science involved in this, is there? Or do they examine the autobiographies of cave men to know how they ranked each other socially?

    When I was younger, I thought I was one of those guys. From puberty onward, I was turned on by male muscle, but I was not at all interested in having sex with a guy. I didn't try it until much later, in my late twenties. Now, of course, I know there's nothing better. icon_biggrin.gif

    So, not to project or anything, but I'm sure there are other guys out there who love muscle but haven't figured out yet that they are gay (or bi). But not everyone can be so easily categorized.

    I read that site occasionally too... good stuff.

    I've had this discussion with some guys on the site, and even though I don't have my own conclusion, it does make a lot of sense. Most buff guys I know are guy, and if they are 'straight', I hear stories of them having 'discreet' meetings with other guys.

    isn't having sexual tendencies entirely different from "wouldn't be seen dead in a gay bar"? gay bars are the 'scene', where there are PLENTY of guys with gay tendencies who don't participate in the scene.

    Sure some buff straight guys are in the closet... but not all.

    1) People work out to 'toughen up'
    2) Raise self-esteem
    3) Get laid
    4) Health reasons
    5) Take control of their lives
    6) Increase their social status
    7) Look good when dancing (no really)
    icon_cool.gif For fun
    9) To help with their sport

    etc etc etc

    I just tried saying hi to a buff guy on this site who is in my area. Could care less if he was gay, straight or bi... just wanted to make a friend in the area, nothing more. Only one line of any substance from him: "i'm into more muscular guys sorry icon_cry.gif"

    How vain.

    What's wrong with having a nice muscular bod?

    I know lots of str8 guys with fantastic muscular bods and they get all the ladies they could possible need and want. To label a person gay simply because he has a very well built bod is hilarious.

    Woman love gay men for the bods because we do happen to take better care of our bods but that doesn't mean str8 guy doesn't want to have anice bod either. many men in general enjoy complimenting others when they see something nice. I'm not the least bit interested in woman but I can certainly appreciate a woman for her physique when I see something nice about it.

    Some people need to just get unstuck and venture away from their personal box of solitude.

    But my point, is this guy, given a few shots willing to do some "homosexual" sexual activities?
