Are Women Really Attracted to "Sissie Boys"?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Here is a quote from an article I read:


Each sex puts on his or her best face and packages themselves to attract the opposite sex. What do women find attractive today? Sissies. Women are CONSTANTLY trying to get men to look more like women. Dye or highlight your hair, be real slim and wear form-fitting clothing, get an earring, get rid of excess body hair, etc etc etc. If you look at the average teen magazine or other periodical directed towards 13–30 year olds, take a look at the men, er, boys that they feature. There is always some scrawny, smiling twit, with messy highlighted hair wearing tight clothing or the preppy sissy outfits peddled by the likes of American Eagle or Abercrombie, with his cute little earring and totally smooth body, devoid of any chest or other body hair. If you ask me, they look more like yuppies from San Francisco, yet this is what passes as "hot" to the average young female.


Well girls, is he right?

NOPE!!! Not me!!! I want a manly man! I love a masculine man!!! Have to be careful to avoid the bad boys....sometimes I tend to sway towards them!!! Give me big arms, five o'clock shadow and a cute butt! A man with a bit of attitude....even better!

Totally not attracted to 'sissies' all. And what you describe is not being a 'sissy' it's being metrosexual. I can handle a wee bit of metrosexual but to me a sissy is someone who's balls aren't firmly attached and lets people walk all over them like a doormat.

OK here's my 2 cents,

I think that the whole thing stems from the fact the the media is presenting these men as the way they portray women. It is an age old argument, if you would call it that, that women primp and preen for a man. This turns the table, in the fact that now men know what women go through to get all dolled up. Not all men mind you.

I do have longer hair, it's a preference, I have my ear pierced and when I go out I take the time to make sure I look good, however this in no way makes me a sissy boy. If a guy wants to do these thing it is his choice and he should not be considered a sissy boy because he appreciates looking good in public.

I do not agree with men or women for the matter that feel the neccessity to be wafer thin. Christ, eat something, when you turn to the side you disappear. That is just not healthy. It is all about perception and preference. It's a yin and yang thing.

Men have been piercing ears for a long time, not just recently. The whole shave the body hair I dont get, unless you have a gorilla's back then maybe you should wax.

I do like ''pretty boys'' but to me that is in the natural structure of the face. Billy Idol is my favorite ''pretty boy'' and he's 52 now and looks my age, despite years of drug addiction. He has high cheek bones and pouty lips, he's had this way before all this new metrosexual stuff. And don't say it's all photoshop cuz I've seen him up close and in person. HAHA....

The pretty boy I've been seeing lately is very young and just so sexy, but he does have a unibrow...it bothers him, but not me....none of his body hair is an issue with me, he doesn't have an earring or work hours on his hair...and I think he's just beautiful the way he is. But again it's the facial structure, not anything special he does to look good

Male models tend to be pretty boys not because that's what women want, it's because that's what the gay photographers/fashion execs/recruiters want. They decide what is attractive and what is pushed in magazines, not the public.

A quote from Bill Barnwell ~ which looks to be a right wing christian homophobe.

Women are trying to feminize men? Please.

And the model types - that's just marketing. How is anyone going to fall for that over any other type of marketing ploy? We all have the possibility to not buy into such marketing ploys.

And what does a mans looks, shaven or not, pierced or not have to do with being a man? Not a thing.

I don't think it's women who are pushing for the sissy boy look. (Not THIS woman anyway.) I think it's the companies with "sissy boy" junk to sell, such as hair gels, fad clothing, jewelry, etc. It's in the interests of their profit margins to persuade men that they need to look sissy in order to attract women. Where's the money in telling you you're fine just the way you are? Which you are, BTW. Resist the sissy look!

M7, let me fill you in on something... the media.... as with most venues of the media that is trying to get our hard earned cash, it's ALL based off of someone trying to PREDICT what will SELL. PREDICT what they think we want to BUY.

As for whomever wrote that article that you are quoting, that's their personal opinion based off of a prediction that was set out there in hopes to take our cash. I can't see much validity in that, now can you???

There's a huge difference between a sissie boy and a man who takes care of his personal hygiene and how he looks. A well kept masculine man - yes!!! A sissie boy - no bloody way!!!

One more thing I'd like to add. Very young women (around ages 12 to 14) prefer girly-boy types like you describe. Smooth, slim boys with highlights in their hair are appealing to young girls because they're cute and harmless. Grown men seem threatening. So when that article you're talking about refers to "the average young female," maybe it's talking about REALLY young females.

Ummmm - no. Shaving body hair and piercing an ear (or ears) does not a sissy boy make. But the article sounds as if it is out of some Junior Miss magazine, maybe Seventeen. I'm wondering if maybe you shouldn't take a second look at your reading material!

Of course, you are not talking to the "average young female" here either!

Not this woman...

ICK!!!!!

ICK, ICK, ICK!!!!!

Give me a man who is a little rough around the edges, somewhere between sissy boy and knuckle dragging neanderthal.

Sissy boys being marketed to teen girls 12-14....maybe young white girls. I get so frustrated with the young black women I teach, who are smart and have so much going for them, yet the boys they want to be with....the ones with their pants falling off, gold teeth, some who already have made a baby, been in jail. It's the whole gangsta phenomenon...the bad boy.....and that is the type of marketing aimed at young blacks....and what it is they like. So on the opposite end of the spectrum, is the marketing of the thug/gangsta types to another section of our society.

Whats wrong with a strong man that can dress well and take care of himself? You call them sissie boys? How old are you and how old was the guy who wrote this article? Obviously all women aren't attracted to the same guys but I find it hard to believe that some women don't find it appealing.

If you ask me, they look more like yuppies from San Francisco, yet this is what passes as "hot" to the average young female.

Why from San Francisco? Is the guy who wrote this article implying that most men who dress well and take care of themselves are gay? This author sounds ignorant. Stereotyping is for simpletons.

I bet most women wouldn't argue on men taking good care of their skin but im definately glad that guys are still expected to look like guys and not some pretty boy prep look. :P

I once had a guy say to me he wasnt my type cuz i like the sissie type guys and i dont think that at all... Yes i prefer a guy who has nice hair, clean shaven and dresses well but i dont concider that to be a sissie guy. He just takes pride in his appearance. I find other men attractve too but its the clean cut shaven ones that get my attetion first. lol

I agree with Leeanne. There's a big gap between Truman Capote and Velco chest hair with a Bert Reynolds mustache! We want a man without hair on his back, smells good and can dress himself without embarrasing us in public

I agree with Leeanne.

As I understand it...the term sissy often refers to a man who exhibits effeminate qualities. The male who is more concerned about his aesthetic appearance and male vanity has been labelled a metrosexual. The line may be rather fine between the two, but sissy is gender based, and metrosexual is a lifestyle.

Are women attracted to sissy boys? I can't speak for the rest of the ladies, but I'm NOT attracted to sissies or effeminates.

My thoughts,
Dev
