This is a comment by Matt on the post “The Male Body: Repulsive or Beautiful?“
“There is a tiny bit of truth to this post, in respect to the way that the male body is presented as comical. However, I think that the author has insufficient experience with women. Women do not crave beauty in a man. Beauty is their domain and it isn’t a turn on.
“What a women craves is manliness. Men cannot understand the concept of manliness and so they project the idea that men are not beautiful without understanding a woman’s attraction to manly features and manly ways. Looking like and being a man is sexy to a woman. She is not interested in the same characteristics.
She doesn’t want an art piece, she wants something with strong lines, imbued with strength, and a character that is powerful to reinforce her perceptions. Unfortunately, the modern man tries to present himself to his mate as ‘beautiful’ rather than ‘handsome’ and this confuses the hell out of both the man and the women.
“The best thing to do is to not worry about that and assume that the women will be attracted to your manliness if you exert the right attitude.”
