All those hours at the gym will help you get laid. They will not, however, keep you from contracting swine flu. Looking at a new report on musculature, the New Scientist relays: “Beefcakes may be able to attract women by rippling their muscles, but the downside of all that brawn is a poor immune system and an increased appetite, a new study finds. Such evolutionary costs could explain why males of our species do not all look like He-Man, according to William Lassek, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who led the new study. […] Many other studies have shown that women tend to prefer more toned men, and muscle-bound men tend to have more sexual partners than slender men, when other factors are controlled for. Previous research has also suggested that musculature comes with a cost. Testosterone, a hormone that promotes secondary muscle growth, suppresses the immune system of all animals, including people. […] The beefier the man – measured by total fat-free mass, or arm and leg muscle mass – the more sexual partners he had, Lassek confirmed. The study also showed that more muscled men tended to lose their virginity at a younger age, compared to skinny men.”
In other news, bears shit in the woods.
@Adam Sank: You beat me to it!
and the hypothetical gay findings:
muscle men are more likely to be bitch bottoms taking it raw
They failed to mention the more muscle mass the more inflated their sense of self worth. So if you feel like a worthless piece of dung start lifting cause its all about whats on the outside!
” muscle-bound men tend to have more sexual partners than slender men” — someone got paid to discover this.
Exactly Number one. LOL! And in other news…girls with big boobs get hit on.
@Qjersey: I’ve never understood this complaint.
If a guy wants muscles…which do look good, why can’t he also be a bottom? It’s no one’s fault if you personally choose to equate muscles with being a top and skinny with being a bottom.
That’s as stereotypical as straight people saying bottoms are feminine and tops are masculine trying to figure out who’s the woman in the scenario.
I guess they have to get it while they are young, before the roids shrivel it up and causes them not to get anything from anybody!
I’ve also met a lot of girls who seem to like skinny guys like Mick Jagger or that Patterson guy from that vampire movie as well, and seem to be a little put off buy overbuilt guys.
In terms of gay guys – do I believe muscle guys attract more men – absolutely.
@Lex: I’ve actually found that real, true bodybuilders — I mean SERIOUS bodybuilders — invariably are bottoms. And considering those gargantuan bubble butts, it’s a mercy.
Let me put it bluntly: If all of us were tops, who would provide the “hole”? Let’s face it, we are not truly “equipped” to be sexual partners and so we had to “improvise”. I am a versatile and I like both positions. But I always hated the sterotypical bullshit that is dumped on bottoms. I can understand that coming from some ignorant straighty, but from gays in the know…?! Listen up, if you are applying societal standards of masculinity and femmininty, then know this as well: Whenever you are fucking guys, in whichever position, you are no longer considered “manly men”, sweethearts. So get off your dillusional high horses and throw those legs up in the air–you know your assholes have been twitching to try it for years.
Let’s face it, we are not truly “equipped” to be sexual partners and so we had to “improvise”.
Natural law theory? You a christer, too? Shut the fuck up.
Oh, bodybuilders are gross looking. Ew.
im sure this has nothing to do with the media hyping and over sexualized shirtless pics ripped/muscled up models and actors.
@ Tank on the rag: I am so sorry I forgot about the hermaphrodites like you, when I wrote that response.
You’re retarded. You don’t see the parallels between your statement and the foaming at the mouth preachers who scream about genital “complimentarity”? Never an is from an ought nor an ought from an is. Hume introduced that distinction (is/ought) to annihilate toxic religious faith’s claim to any truth concerning ethics. Since oral and anal sex do occur, and are pleasurable and aren’t shown to interfere wtih other function, the assertion from design is as false as the argument is invalid.
big surprise…don’t be jealous….
Regardless of whether you are a steamroom hag or a muscle mary in her mid-forties praying you can get away with 37 while trying to pick up that 20 something new hunk that just joined your gym the important thing is you are you.
Have a nice weekend everyone and enjoy your space in the gym.
Skinny + No Butt = Big Dick.
So now I have an excuse for why I couldn’t get my twinky self laid in high school…
@BrodyIsHuge: Isn’t it always like that?! But like FREAKISHLY HUGE DICKS.
Anyway, when I was teen I was really skinny and I had allot of sex, like ALLOT allot and I lost my virginity when I was like 13, I’d say that was pretty young. But then I hit like 18/19 and started getting my adult body (i.e. got kinda stocky), but even then I’ve still had ALLOT allot of sex. I tried doing the “muscle body” thing but that takes allot of dedication, and quite frankly, I’ve got way better things to do with my time.
@Bitch, please!: AMEN to that Sister…er..ah…BRO”!…don’t wanna get bashed by others for using some good ol’ gay slang.
Looks can attract attention, but sexual attraction is all in the brain. A confident smart guy of any size will get more longterm lustful attention than a stupid hunk.
Wow what a bunch of ill informed comments from people who know little about health science other than what they see on TeeVee.
1. Anabolic steroids don’t suppress immunity, they enhance it. That’s why they are given to people with AIDS, Cancer, burns etc.
2.The ‘writer’ of the piece confuses Anabolic Steroids and Cortico-steroids which in the yin/yang of body chemistry do the exact opposite of Anabolics. They reduce muscle mass and inhibit the immune system for‘flight or fight.’
3.Nothing shrivels with Anabolic Steroids other than the egos of people who are jealous of the bodies and health of steroid users. The story that men’s sexual organs ‘shrivel’ is a comforting myth, but it ain’t true.
4.Evolution has worked it so that pretty people (fit in an evolutionary sense) get laid and get hitched to other pretty people. Those who are unhealthy or in this day and age too lazy to take care of their bodies and thereby look evolutionarily unfit to potential partners, tend to whine a lot by their lonesome selves, but nobody with nice bodies much cares about their opinions. Instead they spend their time living longer healthier lives with attractive bodies into their 60’s and 70’s as anyone who has ever been to Venice beach will tell you.
A little more humility and exercise is really in order here.
@Mb00: Fuck what they will say, you can call me a sister anytime. I am gay and I know it. I also know we have some terms we throw at each other for fun. Forget them, they probably have a 2*4 up their butts. I would say a needle up their ass, but I know they couldn’t hold it in because it is too loose.
@Al Benson: So all the research and reports from steroid users are all false! Hmm! And we should take your “wisdom” instead because your qualifications are what…? So which street corner are you hawking your drugs?
So you don’t know what evolution is just as much as this bitch,please person doesn’t know about physiology…
Men who are all bulked up aren’t that attractive; but men who are muscled to the pont of being healthy are. I think that evolutipon would pick that person to. Consider a runner who does some upper body work iwll have have a lot more energy and staying power..
Kung fu panda! Sexual selection ain’t natural selection, though it has just as big–if not more–of an impact.
1) if you’re gay, you’re either going to be a top or a bottom. That’s common sense. I don’t know why some of you sound like you’re somehow superior by being a top.
2) Some of you claim that most bodybuilders are bottom. Let’s get something straight here. They wouldn’t bottom to most of you. The only person they’ll likely bottom to is another hot uninhibited guy who won’t care about which role they play.
3) why do so many of have nothing positive to say? You guys come on here to check out pix of models, but comment that he’s probably stuck up or dumb.
Instead of behaving like old bitter queens, hit the gym and make urself feel better.
It’s opposite. Muscle men got small baby and almost just like don’t know how to sex or only being bottom queen!
Why is this bitch TANK always on the rag? Geez, even women have that for only a few days each month!
OK for speaking the gospel! I couldn’t have put it any better.
You are attracted to what you are into!
If you go to the gym you like gym bodies.
If you stay home and eat shit and become fat you hate people that look good cause you can’t have them.
Some people like muscles, some like twinks, some like to give, some like to take. Because you take up the ass make you less of a fag? Now I’m sure that 90% of you writing on this blog are bottoms! I, myself if a top. I have taken it up the ass once or twice but I like to give! Doesn’t make me more manly than the next man. I love masc bottoms. I like to give it like a man and love a man that can take it like a man! I love big beefy man that can take it and not be a Mary in bed. that’s the best sex to me. So if a bodybuilder likes to get it up the ass send them my way!
the moral is Different strokes for different folks. Don’t judge other rather judge yourself! all you bottoms. lol
@Andramata : Do whatever the hell u want, nobody cares! and practise what you said “Don’t judge other rather judge yourself!”
@Philip A: what the hell did I say or do to you mary? don’t get your panties in a twist cause I agreed and defended the muscle guys. I happen to know 6’6 250lbs men with 10 in cocks and are tops! they do exist. you just not their types so you will never meet them! I don’t judge. the question came up and answered….. that’s all.
Next: Who has sex more often? The obese or the skinny? The nelly or the geeky? The light-skinned or the dark-skinned? The bald or men with hair? Those over 8 feet tall or those under 4 feet tall? Dog owners or cat owners? Vegans or carnivores? The religious or the non-religious?
I like skinny guys, but hell yeah; if i had been muscled, i would have lost virginity being 12 considering i lost it being chubby at 15.
Now im stuck in the middle. I gotta decide for growing up muscles or staying thin. Of course i’d go for the first option, i mean i wanna get laid until my late 60s so i gotta be in shape jajajaja.
Ugh. God help whoever wants to f*ck you now…
