    Does anyone else think this is ridiculous? It is kind of depressing to think that we are becoming so image obsessed that men are also getting implants. (I don't know if anyone saw the calf implant episode on that MTV show, but that was also pretty stupid.)

    I think these implants make sense for guys who've had serious injuries, birth defects, etc., to help them look normal, not the average vain Joe.

    I've seen these pecs in action, and they usually come attached to an ultra-tan, wig-wearing, Chiclets®-toothed thing with bun-enhanced briefs sporting WAY too much spandex.

    I saw an ad in some gay magazine about 10 years ago for semi-rigid pec and ab implants... designed to "give you the six pack abs and porn-star chest you just can't get in the gym" (I swear, that's what the ad said). icon_rolleyes.gif

    I agree with mickeytopogigio... I can see this kind of thing... or any other kind of implants... for people who have had catastrophic injury, illness, or some kind of accident that has left them disfigured. That application of this kind of thing makes perfect sense to me, as having the most normal appearance possible would go a long way toward boosting the healing process by boosting the patient's confidence.

    Getting this kind of thing for purely vain purposes, in my opinion, is just stupid. I'd much rather see a man with a less than porn-star physique and know he's natural than to see one that looks perfect and know he's plastic... or silicone, or whatever. If I wanted to look at or be with a silicone person, I'd order one of those RealDoll things... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Chest implants for a guy is just lame. Unfortunately that is the world we live in today. Anyone want to bet most of these procedures go on a credit card? Sad-

    I would support the idea of an implant to correct an injury or deformity.

    I went on a date with a guy with pec implants. The shape of his chest did *not* match the rest of his body. He wasn't out of shape or anything, but you can tell the pecs were fake and not earned through hard work.

    But yeah, in general, I think they're ridiculous.

    i think if it's something you need to feel good about yourself, go for it.

    it seems the guys who always say it's lame or weak are the one's that can easily obtain massive pecs through weight training or genetics.

    judgment comes all too easy sometimes

    If you are doing all that you can in the gym to get a bigger chest and doing it right, I don't see much of a problem with pec implants. Especially if they do match the rest of your body. I don't think I'd get them myself though.

    Also, 409 implants in one year really isn't that many. More people die from almost any know disease in one year.

    Mickey thanks for the help with the link.

    I guess I Atlazeia, the pecs might get bigger, but I would think the rest of the body would also have to be tone. Not like women, who could have a slim body and just want bigger boobs.

    For some reason I guess I could understand a woman getting breast implants, but for a man they just seem silly. Like I said for the male body it makes sense to bulk everything up together.

    And as far as if it makes you feel good about yourself, that doesn't seem like a good enough reason. Then again, who am I to judge. I guess, they are not for me, and I would probably not date someone that has them.

    I understand the pain of hard-gainers, and wanting to be that thing that nature didn't provide...I just look in my pants sometimes and cry...

    But, a natural chest--sunken or not--beats a plastic one any day. Sorry for being judgmental.

    Losing your hair? Go bald...it's beautiful
    Small dick? Big deal...it hurts my ass WAY less
    Crooked, yellow teeth? Modeling isn't your thing...so do radio voice work

    I find the beauty in diversity.

    I think mine are big enough already. If I got implants I would be too tempted to titty-fuck myself and I would never get anything done.

    Well, I'd hope that they'd at least DO something. Not just a bag of saline, but maybe a built-in iPhone or a UV laser, or a toaster. Something useful, if you're going to carry it around all the time.

    This gets me thinking of the double standards we set in society.

    A guy that doesn't have sex is queer.
    A girl that has sex is a slut.

    Women are to take estrogen.
    Men can't take testosterone.

    All fems are gay.
    All masculine folks are straight.

    It's o.k. to put botox in your face to remove expression.
    It's not o.k. to engage in anti-aging.

    You should lie to fat people about their appearance.
    You should not lie to slim people about their appearance.

    And, so on, and so on.

    Society is fucked up. Just no other way to explain it.

    Vanity is alive and well, especially in the gay community.
    I read somewhere, that if any part of your body bothers you that much, you will have a happier life if you have it changed. And, it's a strictly personal thing. I really think that at least 90% of people don't even notice whatever it is that you hate about your looks. But, if having some kind of work done will make you happy, go for it. Just don't go all Michael Jackson...

    Yeah I thought it looked horrible. I don't think anyone should do implants unless they want to look like they have a perma-cramp

    I gotta agree with Mickey, if you got a flat chest, a small chest, a sunken chest, hell, if you got no chest what so ever, so be it, wear it with pride and destinction..

    *checks Mickeys pants again* ............... icon_eek.gif

    I've been enjoying my new, natural pecs, and I gotta say if they don't have striations when you flex 'em and the appropriate level of "squish" when you touch them it'd be pretty freakin' weird.

    Enjoy them if you got 'em, otherwise, don't worry about it. Beats looking like Joan Rivers!
