but, they forgot one….Posted: March 7, 2012
i stumbled across this article and gave it a read and giggled. it’s from men’s health. i used to read MH a lot, it was a decent read. this was the top 10 muscles women find attractive in men.
1. 6-Pack Abs
You could have biceps the size of bowling balls, but if you’ve got the beginnings of a gut, any discriminating woman will think twice before considering you boyfriend material. Their fear: A little excess midriff meat now means one fat, sloppy man in 10 years.
2. Powerful Forearms
Women see strong forearms and think you can do everything: Fend off a mugger, build a house, and maintain a dexterous touch long enough to leave them extremely satisfied. So roll up those sleeves, and let ’em have a look.
3. A Nice Butt
Women check out your butt because it’s a clue to your worthiness as a physical specimen. If you’re in great shape, it carries high. Otherwise, your rear end droops like a sack of old potatoes.
4. A Broad Back
A wide back is essential for a V-shaped torso, and women’s attraction to it is ancestral. “When it was important that our mates protect us from woolly mammoths on the plains, we looked for a gene pool that could provide us with protection,” says Pega Ren, a sexologist in British Columbia.
5. Sculpted Shoulders
“The shoulder muscles are really the muscles of love and war,” says Nancy Etcoff, author of Survival of the Prettiest. They also make the whole look when combined with a broad back. Strong shoulders literally sweep women off their feet.
6. Rock-Hard Calves
“Women want an overall sense of strength and fitness,” says Etcoff. “If a man looks as if he can lift something but can’t run, it looks disproportionate.”
7. A Big Chest
“Women treasure your chest as much as you do theirs,” says Emily Dubberley, a sex expert based in the UK. “Touching, kissing, … a man’s chest is undoubtedly a turn-on for most women.”
8. Large Biceps
In a poll of Cosmopolitan readers, 1 out of 5 women confessed that nice biceps on a man makes them “absolutely melt.”
9. Money Line
We’re not convinced that’s its official name, but here’s how our female friends describe it: “The muscle that runs diagonally from hip to crotch,” “The muscle that sticks out near the hips—yummy!” and “Lower abs, near his package.” [edit: i have a great money line]
“Women want an overall sense of strength and fitness,” says Etcoff. “If a man looks as if he can lift something but can’t run, it looks disproportionate.” not to mention gay…
but they forgot one. they didn’t mention the “love muscle”. lol. c’mon….you HAD to know i was gonna go there. hey, at least i’m consistent. i LOVE lists like this. you know why…..it’s kinda bullshit. you know how i feel about women’s lists. lol. especially when i do relatively well with wimminz and i’m NOT a muscular guy. but i guess i have a guys build, so that’s all that’s really is going to matter to a woman. not the SIZE of my muscles, because let’s be honest, i have the muscle tone of steven hawkings thighs.
