September 8, 2008: NSFW Averages
I wonder if this is true?
LabRat Monday Sep 8 11:46 AM
I have often wanted to find a series of 3-5 women of differing sizes and post a poll for guys, then a separate of of the same pics for girls to vote for their most attractive. Ideally, it would be the same woman, but in 10-15 lb increments, but where ya gonna find that?

I'll take them all.

"Size" as defined by the fashion industry is irrelevant. Do you know in many cases the more expensive the clothing the smaller size you can get away with? Marketing.

i'm almost willing to bet that "men's ideal" was based almost exclusively on "who has the nicest boobs".

Women are really funny about their bodies. I hate my butt, my husband tells me its one of my better assets.
classicman Monday Sep 8 02:20 PM
the women are correct. That's all I'm gonna say, anything else is sure to get me in trouble.

Do you have something in a ten?

My favorite is Caroline (size 16)

Why are there no odd numbers? Is it the same reason Chinese hotels don't have a fourth floor?
Slothboy Monday Sep 8 06:58 PM
Size 8 is in fact my least favorite of the three. However, I find them all to be 100% hittable.
ZenGum Monday Sep 8 08:51 PM
I like (lust) all three

Size plays a part, so does proportion. But more important, as Zengum was getting at, is condition. A person with a size 8 frame but size 16 fat layered on it is not my ideal. Nor is a size 12 frame with only enough fat for a size 8 body - who likes skeletons? A nicely toned, balanced body is my ideal. Now if only I could make my own nicely toned and balanced...

They're all quite fine. My ex was a 16 throughout most of our marriage, and she was never fat in any way. She was quite hot, actually.
TheMercenary Monday Sep 8 09:38 PM
I'd do all three of them 2 times!!

(To answer HLJ's probably not serious question about odd numbers: odd sizes are usually junior sizes, meant to fit teenagers whose proportions are a little different from adult, curves-filled-out women.)

jinx tells me I'm very judgmental about appearances. looking at those 3, i like the 8 and the 16 best. why? the 8 looks fit and trim, and the 16 is curvy....the 12, although smaller and lighter than the 16, has no waist. It's more about proportions.

they all look good ,

Women always tell me. "don't worry, size doesn't matter."
Aliantha Tuesday Sep 9 01:54 AM
And of course you're all remembering the photos have been shopped right? Sure the proportions might be right, but I'm very surprised to not see a single dimple anywhere on any of them.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder - or in some cases in the eyes of the beheld.

I wonder if men's preferences change as they* get older. There is not much difference between what I found attractive in a man's physique oh-so-many-years-ago and the present, but it's much further down on the list of what I'd want now. And I guess I'd better bookmark this Image as inspiration for continuing with the gym. :p

Caroline it not average anyway. She has more than an average number of eyes and limbs.
SteveDallas Tuesday Sep 9 10:05 PM
The poses make it really hard to judge. (Not that I judge....) For instance, it looks like none of the three really has much of a waist, which I doubt is really the case. Some more "realistic" (for lack of a better word) poses would be good.
ZenGum Tuesday Sep 9 10:07 PM
(Why is that bit called a waist? Because there's room for at least one more pair of .. oh, sorry, wrong thread. And its better if you say it.)

I'm a size 8, but I bet that girl towers over my 5'2". I have a fat gut and love handles...how come none of those girls do? Their sizes might be average, but their bodies sure ain't.

Also, remember these are UK sizes. Size 8 in the UK is Size 6 in the US. The largest lady is a US Size 14. I agree that their bodies are not average for their sizes.

Where are the man body picture comparisons? If we had a poll like that, would it be a skinny guy, a muscular guy and a heavy guy?
Big Sarge Monday Sep 22 07:23 PM
Case, you are right. I bet 90% of the women would vote for the muscular guy. It is sickening the way people objectify sexually. I understand. I have met so many women who just look at me as a sex object. What I would give for a woman to want me for my inner beauty & not just my buff bod.
