Poll for the guys - Gap, or No Gap?

The picture on the first page of this thread/poll shows what the current "definition" of a thigh gap is - because I think some of the posters on here don't actually know what it means. It means thighs not touching at all. Impossible for most women, no matter how thin or athletic.

I've noticed it of course, but I always accepted that some have it, some don't, and was a matter of genetics just as women have varying cup sizes. But I will admit, it has always been seductive, 'just not something I ever thought of as an item to check off a list, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, this post is about nothing really, 'just wondering how many out there knew this was yet another beauty topic for women.
Draws a lot of attention to the area.

Looks like someone who rides a horse all of the time,
being similar to being bow-legged.

Don't think it is all that attractive really.

What can I say; that, ahem, isn't the particular "thigh gap" I'm interested in....

My genetics have dictated that there will be no gap and I'm happy with my genetics. Ain't a knock against thinner girls, more of a self happiness sorta thing.

Nope, my reply was for the entire audience with no particular members targeted.

Thigh gap looks unnatural and unhealthy. Not really attractive at all in my opinion and certainly not something I would look for in a woman. Never even heard of it until I downloaded The Chive app on my phone.

Agree, those country singers in that video all have nice curvy thighs, no thigh gaps there.
Besides no one said there was anything wrong with thigh gaps, other than the fact they are not natural for most women. Attempting to get that look, if you aren't genetically predisposed, is going to involve a lot of effort.

As for this 'thigh gap', why the heck would I want to have THAT? It's one thing if you have one of those super slender frames, but I happen to like my shapely, curvy legs that do not have a gap. They go with my hips and they fit perfectly with my body. I'm happy with them.
I am very slender and I naturally have what is known as "thigh gap." I'm proud of my body but "thigh gap" is one feature that I'd gladly give up.

A woman with a thigh gap is a pleasant sight to see when she is naked. The goods are right in your face! Or so I am told.

I never really think about this because I usually have thinner thighs that women with thigh gaps. I just also have smaller hips so I never get the gap. But I guess it's a good goal for a woman who has issues with her thighs.
