but, they forgot one….

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]

10. 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.” 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.

stay up.

    Who are these women they are surveying? I mean yes, we want to be attracted to a man but jeez, who has these exacting high standards??? If I feel a physical attraction / pull to a man, I’m not evaluating his every body part. I’m just thinking…hmm, handsome face, great smile, nice build, and if he’s an intelligent, kind, driven man….swoon!

    I think that perhaps men may think in these terms from things I hear…rating various body parts (face, rack, butt, legs, etc)…I dont know any women who think this way. But I guess being healthy and muscular is never a bad goal for a man from a healthy & fitness stand-point if nothing else. But this list puts waaay more pressure on men than they need to endure. My humble opinion…

      one of the reasons i post openly is to disprove the “tall, dark, and handsome” BS some women mention. well, i’m the exact opposite, i’m “short, pale, and mediocre” and it’s NEVER been a hindrance to my chatting up a woman.

      • JS says:

        I dont know…when I think tall, dark and handsome…I think Cary Grant. And while yes, t,d, h is very appealing. I dont associate muscles with Cary Grant, he had a nice build but he wasnt built like…whoever is on the cover of this month’s Men’s Health. lol

  2. I’m with JS on this one… Couldn’t have said it any better.
