    The media portrays women as going crazy over guys with muscular bodies.

    I've wondered if a lot of men build muscles to impress other men... just like a lot of women wear make up to impress other women.

    From these results I get the impression that the media falsely represent women's taste in men in terms of their muscularity.

    Joy, can you explain this thing about women wanting to impress other women, because I know very little about this. Oyburger mentioned it once.

    I'm not really sure I understand it myself, honestly...

    Most men don't prefer women to wear make up, yet a lot of women do. Women compare themselves to other women and judge other women.

    It's not the media. It's biology. We're programed to judge ourselves in this way.

    In past epochs, male members of the human species were more likely to survive, and consequently better fit to protect and provide for their offspring, if they were physically stronger and larger. Women members of the species were more likely to attract a potential mate and bear children if they were more sexually desirable. When men judge themselves, they covertly think to themselves: "Am I stronger/more intimidating (and thus more likely to survive) than that person?" When women judge themselves, they covertly say to themselves: "Am I better looking/more sexually desirable (and thus more likely to bear children) than that person?"

    Yes, I know I sound like a Chauvinist pig right now, but for the vast majority of people, these underlying biological relics are still alive and well. Certain facets of the media only portray (although, admittedly isolate and magnify) these inborn inclinations. Our society (well, most of the societies still extant on this planet) have evolved past a hunter-gatherer stage.
    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."
    -- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

    Perhaps if you'd chosen a representative of the male gender that conforms more to current tastes you would have gotten different results. For example orlando bloom was a favorite for awhile (I don't know if that has changed).

    Joy, can you explain this thing about women wanting to impress other women, because I know very little about this. Oyburger mentioned it once.
    Its a competition between women. Women will usually talk bad about other women (how they're dressed, their make-up, their mates etc.) in some sort of effort to make the other woman look bad or make themselves look better.
    To be honest I don't really understand it myself, I usually hung out with guys growing up (except for a few trust worthy girls) because of the competition.

    Women judge each other very harshly. It gets ugly.

    I think Orlando Bloom is adorable, but he is a bit girly. Really, guys like Joquain Phoenix and Christian Bale, who are more masculine (but not caricatures of what men think women like) but still very handsome, are ideal IMO.

    Oh I think Jude Law is among the most gorgeous men out there too, but he's more handsome now that he's a bit older. Even though he's losing his hair.

    I have always wondered about this. My Ex would look far better without makeup. She looked more natural.

    Women do like guys with a muscular body i think though, Australian AFL footballers women here go crazy for. They have very sculpted arms, bums etc.








    Now girls... I have prepaired a special feast of eye candy for you. Get ready for what youve always wanted!!!

    There's a difference from having 'man curves' and being ripped, too.

    Physical strenght is not necessarily related to the lenght of muscular cross-section.

    Also, given the level of fitness of the average man, greater than average is really a small quantity.

    They're also useful in sports you know.

    In any case, I agree that arnold's level (as wella as the level of any pro bodybuilder) is absolutely useless.

    Actually, as in any phenomena, there is a inverted paraboloid that describes this phenomena. Over a certain level, bodily muscularity is useless if not detrimental since it counters flexibility speed and agility, which of course were necessary for survival. That's also why the women here of the forum are yucking at Arnold of course.

    I think women "go crazy" because it's fun to go crazy in front of other women. But when those women are on their own, they're not likely to go "crazy" because no one's around to look at them.
