Muscular women... Turn-on or off?Page 1 of 19    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)
If a women starts to look manly then most guys don't like it. Most guys seem to be attracted to non-manly characteristics. Stuff the isn't *usually* found on men. I don't mind a fit looking women at all. The ones that look like they have taken steriods and have really deep voices you see on tv weightliftin competitions are a turn off for me.

A guy feeling inadequate to a chick who has muscles is a joke, and you probably just used the word to flatter yourself. If a guy doesn't like a chick with muscles, its because frankly, muscles aren't attractive on a chick. A flat stomach is usually prefered over a 6-pack on a chick, and a large bicep isn't much better. Fit is great, muscular is a bit masculine for a woman.

To have a woman have her way with you because she's muscular for me is a turn-on. To have her force you to do something you wanted to do anyway is really fun.

IT IS A BIG TURN OFF. KNOWING THAT YOUR GIRL CAN OUT BENCH U AND PROBLABLY KICK YOUR ASS IS NOT SEXY.

I've been working out for a while, refining the body for personal satisfaction... I think it is impossible for a normal woman to get anywhere near 'Chyna's' manly physique without taking hormones, but an hour workout a day gives me an exoskeleton I consider aesthetically pleasing.

I don't like when woman have all these biceps and bulked up all over like Arnold. It is a total turn off for me. It just makes their whole beauty of body disappear.

I absolutely love to work out and am in great shape (I work hard at it)... I was wondering if men find muscular women a turn on, or do they consider them a bit intimidating, especially in the bedroom? Does it make them feel inadequate?


Depends, what kind of body are we talking about here? Kianna Tom or are we talking the kind of muscle sculpting that pretty much erases your gender and you look like a man with a chics face attached?

If the former, then it can be sexy. If the later, then bleh.

RE: First post.

lol I love how women automatically assume it makes them intimidating or makes us feel inadequate. Why avoid the obvious answer?

Muscles = Manly.

Im not attracted to men at all. Soo.... seeing a masculine quality on a woman is disconcerting to me. But hey, with the lights out I dont even care. Hahahaha.


***NOTE

I dont have a problem with a woman being stronger or more fit than me. But looking muscular is genetically built into the species as a masculine trait (WHOOAAA feminists. Dont fly off the handle, Im not saying men are stronger then women, genetically, Im saying men are generitcally predisposed to being muscular whereas women are predisposed to being lithe and quick). So it really kills the attraction for me. Im sure I could get past it though, assuming it isnt ridiculous.

Depends on what "muscular" is. If every muscle she has is ripped like a bodybuilder, then no way. Nothing to do with feeling immasculized, just don't thinks it's attractive.

It totally depends on the man. Each man has individual tastes.

As for as intimidation or inadequacy goes, that is more related to the man's self-esteem than your body.

The same guy that would be intimidated by your body would be the same guy that wouldn't be able to handle it if you beat him at, say, tennis.

But that shouldn't be a problem... how likely are you to be turned on by a guy that insecure?

So the problem should literally take care of itself.

Hope that helps!

I'd have no problem being with a muscular woman. Maybe she could even give me some pointers.

women are meant to be soft and cuddly not hard and muscular

Oh yeah? Interesting. And which law exactly requires women to be "soft and cuddly" (which probably translates into "overweight and in bad shape" anyway).

Cheerleaders, ice skaters, distant runners have highly developed muscles. However, the muscles are not large. Such girls are very sexy.

There is an movie called "Skin Deep"...stars John Ritter & Zap from American Gladiators (the original series). I think it outlines EXACTLY what happens to most men when they meet a hot looking muscular gal...some handle it well, some find it a turn on...some little girly men run away

Ponder upon this...if a woman can slam you up against the wall and have her way with you...would you enjoy it??

It's not really a turn-on, or turn-off for me. If a woman takes care of her body and works out, that is wonderful. It may be difficult for a female bodybuilder to find a man. I don't have a problem dating women with muscles. I am secure about myself and besides, I can bench 350lbs and squat 505lbs and I don't workout regularly. I have nothing to worry about.

I agree with what some other people have mentioned. An athletic/fit woman with some muscle can be very attractive. I'm not attracted to women who are professional bodybuilders.
