    I noticed that most gay men like to get some tan.. well, I admit that I like it too ..icon_biggrin.gif

    though I see guys with bright skin very attractive .. but sometimes guys with a tan and shiny skin look hot to me ..

    How about you guys?
    .. What do you prefer icon_question.gif a tanned guy or a bright-skin guy icon_question.gif

    I don't tan. So I'll stick with my Victorian beauty. Otherwise, doesn't matter to me.

    I don't tan either. I don't mind a tan on other people, as long as it's not obsessive.

    If someone asks me this question, like in a forum for example icon_wink.gif, I say not tanned. But there's no question that I find it hard to peel my eyes away from a body with a slight tan, especially if well-defined.

    as an avid sun AVOIDER i would say pale is great!! although a hot square cut tan line laying on my crisp white sheets does inspire me beyond belief!!

    For myself...being Italian I look better with a tan
    but on other guys it depends on their complexion and coloring
    I really go for dark haired guys with light skin
    but then I go absolutely bonkers when I see a tan-lined ass icon_eek.gif
    "YOW!"

    A light tan looks hot, but too dark, especially in the NW looks retarded. Pale skin on a muscled guy is amazing, especially in the arms. Don't know what it is. I myself look better with a little color, but I get more compliments when my skin is a little paler.

    Depends on the guy. Skinny or overweight?...Tan! Muscular?...Either works fine!!!icon_razz.gif

    a white butt on a tanned guy is hot

    I have a picture of me from a vacation a few years ago with my bare white bottom glaring in the sun, and you can see I did have a tan, which took me weeks to acheive.

    I think pale Irish boys are sexy as hell. I generally think pale is better, but that's probably because I am a strategic sun-avoider. At high noon I burn in about 10 minutes.

    Honestly, I think a tan looks good on some guys too, it's all about personal style, and possibly ethnicity. Don't look right on some, and I couldn't imagine others without it.

    I am naturally tan. I came from a tropical country with plenty of sunshine and hot weather. Obviously no tanning for me. By the way, I just love guys with tan skin. I guest I am in love with myself

    If the guy is hot, it doesn't really matter, does it?

    Let's compare, shall we?

    Nope... doesn't make a scrap of difference to me.

    I think some guys can look a little too orange. Maybe that's because it's fake tan.

    And of course us pale skin folk have to wear sunblock or suffer the very painful consequences.

    Personally, I'm attracted to darker skin guys.

    I just think about the sun and I start to turn brown. I don't try to avoid the sun and I spend a lot of time outdoors, so by the end of every summer I'm covered in numerous tan lines. I get tank top lines, sleeveless shirt lines, crew neck lines, V-neck lines, various stripes up and down my legs, etc. I've actually considered visiting a tanning salon just to even out my coloring, but I don't really care enough about it to bother. After all, it's what's inside that counts, right? Right?

    I love a guy with a nice tan, not overdone though. Whether it's believed or not, I tan also. During the rest of the year (besides summer) I do get lighter.

    For those like me who are just cute, but not hot I think tanning is a must icon_cool.gif

    Being 100% irish hurts to, without red hair or freckles I just look pasty without year round tanning. Not that I can get much beyond alaska summer tan but its better than ghost white.

    Hey, I'm basically all-irish (there's some english in there as well) and I tan quite nicely. I have a dark complexion anyways (kind of a mix between brooding and clueless, lol) and in the summers I get really dark, not because I sit outside and tan (though I DO love sleeping in the sun on the beach!) but just day-to-day stuff keeps me pretty tanned. I like tans, but again - if the guy is hot, it really doesn't matter =D

    mmm being black I never had to deal with that. Lol. I never thought about it really until I met this one guy from Miami recently. He had this tan and he totally stood out!!! You could tell he was not from around here. it made him totally more sexy.

    For a guy who tans to me he takes real good care of himself. He brings grooming to the next level.

    It's not really something I've put alot of thought into. I don't guess I have a preference. I'm Irish so the only thing I pick up are freckles, got plenty of em. Alright, maybe pale is hot to me. I don't care. Cute is cute.
