That may not be the sexiest definition in the world, but we have ample photographic evidence to support our theory that love handles can be a total turn on. On the right guy, they provide something sexy and gribble for us to wrap our hands around in the throes of passion. And science says that guys with meatier midsections actually make better lovers.

Other words for love handles include “spare tires,” “paunch,” “flap grabs,” and “man lumps.”

Scroll down for pictures of gorgeous guys who prove that love handles are totally sexy…
