My friend claims she dosnt care to see men naked (she is straight), it does nothing for her. I say she is crazy and that its normal to get turned on by seeing a guy in the buff? Who is correct? A naked guy with just the right proportion is amazing. What do you think?

I think that it is a matter of opinion. Some people think that a man's naked body is sexy or a "turn on" and others just don't. Personally, I don't get turned on by looking at guys' naked bodies- I mean, I might say "that guy has a really good body" or be impressed by a man with a built body, but really it does nothing for me. I also find women's bodies very beautiful and sexy, so it has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

People have many different opinions and preferences about what is sexy or what turns them on. For me, the male body is beautiful, but I just don't find it a "turn on." I could care less if my future boyfriend has a great body or not. You may think that a man's naked body is really amazing, but your friend is perfectly normal to not like it. It's also perfectly normal to find a man's body sexy (or a woman's body sexy)- there is no "right" way to feel about that, it just depends on the person's personal taste.

I am straight and I get more turned on by a half naked Angelina Jolie than a half naked Brad Pitt.

You know hon, comments like "She's straight" is really not needed around here. We have alot of posters who are bisexual/homosexual and such hetereosexism can be fairly off putting.

Lucky is right. Not everybody has to think that naked men are drool worthy or amazing. Honestly, looking at naked men does very little for me as well. It certainly depends on my mood and the context in which i see them naked.

So while naked men might be your cup of tea, don't jump to conclusions and assume that every girl has to feel the same way. We are all unique individuals and we all like different things. What works for you might not necessarily work for her.

Lin my dear, you beat me to it! Said almost exactly what I was typing...well except for the bit about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (although I agree with that whole heartedly!)!

It's completely normal to not be turned on by naked men. It's also completely normal to be turned on by naked men. It's definately a matter of personal preference.

For me personally, it depends entirely on the situation and my mood at the time.

I think a dressed man is so much more sexy than a naked one. I can appreciate a nice body but I don't get turned on by it.

I think my boyfriend has a beautiful body. He runs everyday and works out 6 times a week. Yet, I get more turned when he's dressed in a casual pair khaki shorts and a plain fitted shirt. Then, I want to rip off his clothes and see him naked. But if he's just walking around naked, I'm more likely to check to see if he has any unusually moles that might need to be removed, rather than admire his form. I think it runs along the lines of why I think a woman dressed in a nice pant suit is so much more sexy than one wear a tight mini skirt.

I'm with Lin on the naked Angelina Jolie bit. Naked women are more a turn on for me than naked men. I think the female is so sexy and beautiful. Women, naked; men, clothed.

In zebgirl's defense, Lin, I got the impression that her statement was more one of clarification than heterosexism. If her friend were a lesbian, it wouldn't be surprising that she didn't find naked men a turn on. But she's not -- she's straight, she's attracted to males, and so it's a different situation.

I'd like to add something on topic so that this post isn't just nitpicking, but I'm afraid that since I'm not sexually attracted to men, nothing I say will be all that applicable.

Personally, I think that naked men resemble frogs. Just my theory that I've shared with a few close girlfriends. I also prefer a half naked woman over a half naked man. I've told this to my boyfriend, and he's either turned on or offended, depending on the day!

So, it's okay to not be "turned on" by the form of the gender that you're attracted to. It doesn't mean that you're weird, it's just that different things arouse different people. For you, it might be a naked man or woman. For someone else, it might be a half dressed man or woman. Whatever works for you is right.

Personally, I think the female body is more beautiful than the male body. But that doesn't have anything to do with whether I get turned on. It seems like other things, like respect and caring mean more to me than any physical trait. But maybe that's just me...

starry night, you're the only other person aside from myself and one other friend, whom i've ever heard describe it as a "frog."

is that from a book? was it The Color Purple or Their Eyes Were Watching God?

i am bisexually oriented and am attracted to both sexes - and i'm only saying that to clarify the perspective that follows.

while i find the female form to be fantastically beautiful - and angelina jolie is a **goddess** - i could never say that i thought it more beautiful than the masculine body. i love them both equally.

men look different, but i can't find them ugly. the human body itself, regardless of gender, is amazing, hard and soft and silky and hairy and warm and cold and damp and dry and a whole world of lovely paradoxes.

i will admit, though, that i don't really like naked male bodies when they are very large and muscular and exaggerated. i tend to swoon more over the sight of a tall, lean, wirey man, with a more effeminate shape to his body.

wait... if i prefer effeminate men... heh, maybe that *does* mean i like female bodies more than male... ha ha ha... ;-)

well to put it simple i am bisexual and i would prefer the female body nude over the male body. i am married to a guys and i love seeing him nude but its not exactly a turn on. i dont know how to describe it, a guys body is built weird. i would rather look at a female body.

naked guys don't do anything for me. i lived with my friend who was gay and he even agreed that there was nothing sexy about a naked man. but hey, to each his/her own, right? i find men's legs and arms more sexy than the rest of them.

As a note, aside of having some similar basic parts, men are not built any more homogeneously than women are. having seen lots and lots of both nude men and women, when it all comes down to it, the only thing I can say is always different between them is a certain disparity in body hair, differing genitalia, and (usually) a lack of breasts on a male and visible breasts on a female.

Let's be sure we remember that not only do men also have issues with body image that saying "they're built weird" isn't sensitive to, but that there is usually a LOT more diversity in bodies out there than the average young adult has seen.

Men, to put it plainly, are basically built like men, and like what their genetics and background and care of their bodies create and manifest.

It has been scientifically proven that the female form is more astecically pleasing than the male form. I think that guys just look funny personally.

That would be questionable science at best, since aesthetics are not something objjective, but something subjective and highly individual.

That would be a bit like saying you could scientifically prove that one race was more attractive than another. No go.

well personally i really dont like to see guys naked, like a guy with mice abs and a really nice muscular back in amazing, also nicely tones arms. Think Mark Wahlberg during the calvin klien ads! yeah baby yeaa!
but i think the demale body is alot sexier, I dont know why, I guess were just more figured and our bodys can be nicely tones, long slender, I dunno but i guess it can both ways but like the guy underbody part really doesnt turn me on! i have no idea!
thats my opinion! lates

Mark Wahlberg. Did you have to mention him? I read in some teen mag that he had three nipples . . .and now everythime I hear about him I think of that and wonder why the magazine told us about it.

Anyway. Back to topic. I like nudity. On myself, on men, women, little kids, whoever. It's not a sex thing, just something that always seemed cool. Maybe it's from my flower child traces.

I dont think guys are built weird, they're just different. A guy with a nice body is a work of art and sexy. But I also think womens bodies since they are more curved are also beautiful. Eventhough to me guys bodies are a turn on I still love mine and would not change it for anything.

Personally I find clothed men much more of a turn-on compared to naked men. Probably because it leads more to the imagination. Maybe this is her reason too?

Also pornography does absolutely nothing for me. I find it rather fake and I'd much rather have the real thing anyway. My friends think it's strange to not be turned-on by it, I find it strange that they would have to GET turned-on by it. Hmmm.

i think naked women look better than named men...i love drawing/painting/sculpting nude women...but i'm 100% straight...has nothin to orientation..as to whether looking at a nude guy turns me on or not...depends on the guy...i can look at a guy and think "he looks good" or maybe sometimes even rarely "yumm....edible!"...but as a turn on..i don't think so...i read somwehere that men are more sexually stimulates visually than women...meaning watching a prono usually does more for a guy than a girl....hm..

wow you know its amazing to realize that there are other girls out there like me...like when i watch adult movies on movie channels, i always get turned on when i see a female body more than a male's. i thought i might be bi-curious but now i know im not, i dont want to DO anything with another female, but i think that the difference between each female body is erotic and a turn-on. i agree with the angelina jolie/brad pitt comment,(although brad pitt gets my juices flowing to lol)

Naked man=no imagination everything is shown to the naked eye..

ok, my take on this is seein a picture of a completely nekkid man doesnt really turn me on, i think it looks almost akward and porn kinda freaks me out. but guys with like bathing suits on, that show off their upper bodies and sometimes hang low on the butt where u can see the tan line drive me crazy!!! despite not likin nekkid men i dont know, my boyfriend's naked body (he's a runner in college) 2 me is the most beautiful thing i have ever seen, it's absolute perfection and turns me on like no other.

Ilove naked men, especially well built men with big legs and chests. And I think mens penises and scrotums are beautiful also. I love uncircumcised men. I get turned on just thing about it.

i've always thought that the best guy body type is the one that is strong and built but almost feminin. the softness of the female qualitys are alot more attractive then then guys.
guys half naked i think is fine but otherwise they look silly when they wanna go streaking or sumthin
and all the on lookers are doing is shuting their eyes.
