My ideal body type for men is
-5'5"-6'5"
-lean/slender, but with great muscle mass
-Adonis belt/s*x lines
-Nice calves
-Shapely arms with only a small bit of vessels showing
-Broad shoulders
-A little hairy but not a forest. Not really attracted to hair on chest.
-Strong jawline and neck *sighs*

As someone mentioned, Alexander Skarsgaard is hot. I'm not really concerned with eye or hair color.

Turnoffs would be bodybuilder type men and having too much gut and a face full of hair (mountain man beard).

That is about as close as I as I can get so far including the height but still not there yet lol.
I am only 5'4" and I think I carry my weight fairly well for my height. Im working on the other aspects such as the Adonis belt, it is hard to do at my age

I'm a guy, but I always thought Brad Pitt had about the perfect balance of mass/definition in Fight Club. He's a little bigger than I'd want to be in Troy. That's the look I'm striving for, at any rate.

^He used to be great until I don't find him attractive anymore.

Sonny Bill comes to mind but maybe a little less bulky (and definitely a lot shorter). That guy is 6'4. -.-
I prefer 5'7-5'11.
No skinny guys.
A good portion of hair, not extremely hairy. (turnoff)

I will add anything else that comes to my mind.

I'm surprised so many folks are anti-hair. I mean, I'm not about the Austin Powers style chest but I look a hearty amount to run my fingers through. A couple years ago I went out with an 18 year old guy who had zero chest hair whatsoever and I found it so bizarre, it was a major turn off.

And facial hair. Bring on the rugged beards and stubble because I think it looks damn sexy. It's only a nuisance when you're doing a lot of kissing because stubble burn hurts.

That sounds just a little close to what I am. just a little I am just below the height part 5'4". god didn't bless me with height, as far as the rest goes I am not skinny but I think I carry my weight fairly well, I'm trying to get the adonis belt but it is hard lol.

He should NOT look pregnant. I don't mind a small tummy but if he looks like he's a few months pregnant

Actually...this picture...Mmmmmmm...that's it right there. I'd be all over him like a cheap suit!

I also agree that the men who do it think it's hot. But women, not so much.

I think it's more of a narcissistic thing. They do it for themselves and for other men.

Kind of like women with really big hair, overly made up, with unnatural acrylic nails. Men are not impressed.
I can see it being a narcissistic thing, same with the overly made up woman....bleh.

I also felt like there were more narcissists in Florida than in Massachusetts. Maybe it was just the people in my circle but I wonder if it could be something larger than that?

I love Florida either way

Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark, except maybe a little hairier and a teensy bit more muscled. He's just so sexy in both his nerdy professor get up and ruthless explorer mode. I like a man that can pull off both of those looks.

Indeed.

What is your ideal male body type and what can't you stand?

I figured the guys have a thread like this so now it's our turn


Please feel free to add pics as well.



For me:

between 5'10" and 6'1"

Hairy but not Borat hairy

Pure strength but visible ripped muscles aren't required

Big sexy tree trunk legs

Dark hair


Turn offs:

Very little body hair

Skinny...especially chicken legs if I see chicken legs SO UNATTRACTIVE

Flat ass....your ass looks like it belongs on a little girl



Your turn!

I mean, seriously.

If you actually CAN find a man that treats you right, never let him go.
This is not true. You have be attracted to the guy first.
