Do men ever tire of seeing images of women with “perfect” bodies?

As a woman, seeing pictures of conventionally attractive men gets old. Same staged, muscular look. Boring.

Or perhaps I’m at that age of decomposition where the superficial has fallen into the category of useless.

[i]Very[/i] boring and redundant to moi. And can desensitize. Less is more.
But, if it's a man I like/love or am attracted to....mmmm!

@Magenta I mean how many butts and filtered selfies can you look at before it loses excitement? And you think about the person posing and wonder how many likes and slobbering comments are enough?

But yes I know exactly what you mean. When you’re with someone, the warmth beneath their skin is the beautiful part. A soul to nourish and a body to ravish 🖤

@Magenta I only saw your answer after posting mine. They're like mirror images 😊
Magenta · F
@HatterM We're on the same page per usual. 😉

I can’t speak for other women, but photos of men only mean so much to me if I don’t know them personally. So when occasionally posters ask, "which celebrities would you sleep with ?" I can’t really think of any—they’re strangers. Even my celebrity crushes fall in the category of "folks with whom I’d like to have lunch". 😊

For me a person's personality plays into their attractiveness to me.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@hellsbella Exactly. I’m never attracted to someone because of how they look.

A genuine smile goes a long way.

Most men never tire of seeing tits. The woman can be fat, thin, ugly, pretty, or even a Holstein cow...they just love tits. Some men, who are fit , athletes, or simply into a healthy lifestyle do tend to prefer women with the same ideals.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@TexChik people can like what they like, it’s just the standard image of beauty is constantly being shoved in your face. After awhile it just feels empty.
TexChik · F
@CopperFox420 Honestly most that you see in magazines and online actually does not even exist. Most are heavily photoshopped

I'm not attracted to model type men at all. I don't care about 6 pack abs and big muscles or some edgy stare. They could be prefectly great guys but the looks don't draw me in.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@ravenwind43 same for me.
I can speak only for myself. It's gets boring for me, too.
There's so much more to experience with people than their bodies.

I might be in the minority of men about this, but for what it's worth, this is how I react.

To me, the most exciting thing about sex is that I am experiencing an intimate connection with someone who does NOT show that side of herself to anyone else. (I am in a monogamous relationship. But if I were not, I would still say that the excitement is experiencing a side of her that she does not routinely display to everyone.)

On the other hand, pictures of "sexy models" are pictures of women who are being presented as being defined in terms of their sexuality, and thus there is absolutely nothing intimate about the thought of being with them. The images create the illusion that they are "like that" all the time, and yes that gets old for me.

I never understood men whose fantasy is to have sex with a porn star. Why would I want to be just a footnote to her sex life?

I know many men will disagree. I once responded to a thread here with a comment similar to this one, and a man responded, "yeah, DrWatson, but we all know you're a nerd!" 😂

It just feels like looking at dolls or something like that when it's too much. Same with guys. I always wonder about their intelligence and personality.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@Gaiia yes it does eventually just seem fake and meaningless. I don’t know how people obsess over appearance so much.

I’d rather see normal everyday people than perfect ones. Just as i’d rather see women in lingerie than nude,, way more sexy
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
It does get old. Especially highly polished images. I actually find a more normal, realistic picture of a whole woman (face included) much more titilating.
Ontheroad · M
For a long while (years) I've been more or less "eh" it's just another picture of another person hung up on what they want the world to see... not who they are. I finally came to understand what my father used to say. "All women are beautiful, some are just more beautiful than others".

For many of my younger years I thought he was referring to their looks/body and thought it was just a joke, but one day it dawned on me... they (all women), are indeed beautiful and the beauty he was referring to had little to do with how they looked.
Conventional beauty standards in men and women are redundant and pedantic. I like curves and scars.
I like women and I easily get tired of seeing pics like that! It has to be a man thing, lol.
DunningKruger · 56-60, M
I much prefer more realistic women — the most attractive woman in the office, as opposed to a super model. Just because a woman is beautiful doesn't mean that her personality translates into the photos of her, and that sense of personality is very important.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@DunningKruger I agree. I get tired of looking, I want to understand.
DunningKruger · 56-60, M
@CopperFox420 Engaging with someone, discovering each others depths, creating a common language. Creating some form of intimacy, whether in person or online, is desirable.
black4white · 56-60, M
I enjoy looking at those pictures of those perfect bodied women/men not gonna lie.

Now when I see them I know upfront it’s fake or photoshopped or or or … then it’s like ok you just know people don’t look like that so then that brings back the boredom lol

It’s all fun as long as one doesn’t lose what is reality and what is not
HootyTheNightOwl · 36-40
I've never made sense of strippers for the same reason - why bother paying for someone to strip for you when you can just get someone to your liking to do it and more in the privacy of your own home???

I'm not that big on the muscular "I'll spend more time down the gym than I would with you" type anyway.
HatterM · 46-50, M
Of course. I really don't have time for them. They're only pictures. If I were going to objectify women to the point that that's all I saw in them, just pictures might be interesting, but they're not. However if I get to know a woman and like her, then pictures become a lot more interesting to me.
SarithBorn · 18-21, M
I've never really thought about it much. I Like the look of beautiful things so i never tire of seeing them. Some of the most beautiful Things i saw came within someone, how they treat others and how they are in general. 🤔
Magnolia21 · 18-21, F
I would assume so. Talked to someone about it, and he said, "Well, it's like candy. Great in short bursts, but quickly loses its appeal if you have too much."
ronisme1 · 61-69, M
Truthful answer, no, men love womens bodies. I personally love all womens bodies, not just perfect. But only to look at and not touch
nevergiveup · 61-69, M
I like to see normal every day women and as someone that likes to be naked as much as they can be i am happy for any size or age to join me
Darin99branch · 51-55, M
Define “perfect.” 😆 😆😆. I like your second sentence. Spot on.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@Darin99branch oh come on ha! The women you see plastered all over the place you can see them with your eyes closed. same with the Johnny beefcakes. It’s just boring.
Darin99branch · 51-55, M
@CopperFox420 my point exactly.
Strict4u · 56-60, M
Looks will fade over time but a good personality will last forever I love a girl with a good sense of humor
bellybuttonfan17 · 36-40, M
For me personally "real" >>>>> "perfect"

I am not perfect and I do not seek it in others.
CarolinaCrushDaddy · 51-55, M
i knew there would eventually be a pay off for bein old and bald. 🤣🤣🤣
Lumberjack70 · 51-55, M
Yes. Natural beauty is the best, in all its shapes and forms.
TheStarsareout · 56-60, M
Normal looking and body will do me better
I'd rather see some perfect imperfections
Bill1372 · 51-55, M
I love ‘em all
Japrost · 36-40, M
Maybe look at a fat man then
Teslin · M
Yes, the term "Attractive" changes with age.
Glad I have a somewhat dad bod. 😂🤣
caesar7 · 61-69, M
I prefer everyday natural women.
If I'm being honest , No.
uncalled4 · 51-55, M
I prefer more realistic women. After all, I'm a realistic-looking guy!
FeetAreFantastic · 41-45, MVIP
No. Seeing attractive women will never get boring to me.
iamonfire696 · 36-40, F
Men say they like imperfect women but when you open nudity posts or the 18-21 F posts you see them slobbering all over those pictures like they are the most beautiful women in the world.

It’s hard to take them seriously when they come on posts like these and just say “natural women are more beautiful”.
CopperFox420 · 36-40, F
@iamonfire696 Right? 😂 even some dudes commenting on this post are frequently on those posts slobbering 😆

I really don’t know what to believe anymore.
iamonfire696 · 36-40, F
@CopperFox420 I wanted to say exactly this! There are men on this post that are the first ones on a nudity thread slobbering all over those women or the ones that are perfectly made up.

Yet they are here saying realistic and natural beauty is best. Yah okay then 🙄.
