*I* care if I find it attractive, and I don't find it attractive at all. No one really does. this is an internet forum; I am permitted to post an opinion that you may not like. I think cellulite is highly unattractive, that is my opinion.

Of course you're "allowed" to voice your opinion - where did I say otherwise? You are still missing the point, and will probably miss the point of this response too... so while you are welcomed to post, I'd suggest trying to understand a thread before hopping in with your negativity. Or maybe you can explain what your original comment (or this one) has to do with the OP?

P.S. Never disagreed or said I didn't like your opinion. Again:

I have some on my behind and I'm not overweight. It happens. It isn't my favorite, but it's not a big deal in the scheme of things.

Great link, thanks for sharing!

Speak for yourself and please do it on the right forum

Most men know most women will have some sort of cellulite and do not pay too much attention to that. If you are lucky and have a skin complexion that hides your fat cells, good for you, but that alone doesn't make you more attractive. Cellulite is natural in women, if some men don't like it, there are plenty of tight skin boys waiting for men to come out of the closet.

So now if you don't like cellulite you are gay?

Cellulite isn't a female issue only.
Men get it too.

I would like to see a poll on how many people have soft celly vs. hard.

Soft cellulite is rather easy to fix. Hard is not quite so easy but it can be helped with deep tissue massage.
Its a sign of poor circulation and body fluid pooling where it doesn't belong, which can happen for various reasons.

Anyone here with hard cellulite also have heart disease issues in the fam?

Just curious. Of the friends I know that have the hard cellulite they do have heart issues and tend to have the apple shape too.

I don't find it attractive. Unless its intense guys don't really seem to care but its not winning any positive points either.

I weigh 120 lbs and I have cellulite. Here is the proof.



Despite this disfiguring condition I have lived a normal and fullfilling life, and men do not run from me in horror.

Cellulite seems a common part of female physiology.

Quote:
Cellulite is thought to occur in 80-90% of postpubertal females.[8][9] There appears to be a hormonal component to its presentation. It is rarely seen in males,[1] but is more common in males with androgen-deficient states, such as Klinefelter's syndrome, hypogonadism, postcastration states and in those patients receiving estrogen therapy for prostate cancer. The cellulite becomes more severe as the androgen deficiency worsens in these males
So it's not being a gross slob that contributes to having cellulite, it's simply having estrogen flowing through your blood.
