    As I'd mentioned in a previous post, I'm a bodybuilder. Now, in my experience with women (limited as it may be), some muscle and tone is good, but not huge muscle (a relative term, I admit). I've had some women tell me that I just had "too much muscle." Others have said that they liked "all the mass."

    What are some of your ladies thoughts on muscle on your man?

    My bloke is just right imo,he isnt mega muscly but is toned with nice pecs and a tummy i could turn cartwheels on....

    His legs are average sized but nice and firm and so is his bum.

    I'm not personally attracted to muscles so big the guy walks like he has boils under his armpits and can't buy normal clothes as his arms and legs are too big.Like the guys on competitions on tele,just not my thing.

    My wife claims to not be into "too much muscle", however she does love getting fucked very hard. So there you go, i.e. the strength/power of her partner in bed is a turn-on to her (we have an open relationship)

    Wow I'm seeing this question a lot lately! I like some muscles. Like the sexy working man muscles or the ropey lean muscular body. Not so much into really big body builder muscles. I understand a lot of people sit behind a desk now so we all have to workout somehow to keep in shape. I see nothing wrong with a man going to the gym to stay in shape, just not into the guys who over do it.

    BUT seriously it is what's inside that really attracts me after I meet him.

    I seriously dislike a lot of muscle. Since my dad did bodybuilding I've become a bit more tolerant but I still don't like it. I do respect the hard work that goes into achieving it though.

    It depends on the guy and the rest of his body. If hes like 5'5" and like 250 its going to look really over the top. But if hes taller and its distributed more it will look much better.

    Maybe you could find us some shots of someone who has a similar body type to you to judge, or some of yourself?

    Personally, your muscles are a bit too much for me. But, they aren't ginormous so I don't think most women would mind. :3

    Always been my best muscle group. I had to work like hell for the rest. Thanks, though.

    I like the way your body looks, Swole, and I like it a lot. However, I prefer the feel of some squishy fat over nice muscles.

    You must have worked awfully hard to get that kind of definition. Good work!

    I am generally in favor of long and lean builds (swimmers esp.) but my boyfriend was big and buff beefcake. I was infatuated with his personality so it didn't matter he wasn't my type. He just finished his basic training and I think my jaw dropped when I saw him. He had lost quite a bit of weight, 2 months on a rigorous schedule, very little chow time and no weight lifting cause him to lose some muscles. I have to say that I miss them! After being with a big, buff, strong man who makes me feel small (which is no easy thing) I don't think I could go back to a leaner cut man.

    Even though I prefer leaner muscles I still think you look really good:smile: I agree with AE that must have taken a lot of work. Your back and legs are really defined!

    You're welcome :smile:. While big muscles don't do it for me personally, I've seen how much hard work and dedication it takes to get there (even with your best muscle group) - not something I could do, that's for sure!

    Swole, I really like lifting weights as an end in itself, bodybuilding not so much. I've kind of wondered if we all don't pick up, if only subconsciously, on the downsides of peoples' passions and obsessions. I think a lot of the bad reaction to bodybuilders from women comes from the realization that they are looking at walking pharmacology experiments. Also, all forms of obsessiveness come with faults. As I get older, I as much about just staying active as I am about pushing the outer limits. Being strong and working hard are a lot of fun, but being engaged in other parts of life is usually more important to me.

    That being said, to my knowledge, women have almost always appreciated my being a bit more in shape than the average guy.

    Very interesting thoughts. You know, there's a saying that goes, "Obsessed is the word the lazy use to describe the dedicated." There was a time when I was completely obsessed with my progress. I would allow myself one cheat meal per week, but aside from that, I wouldn't have one french fry during the week.

    As time went on, I eased up on myself. I still trained every bit as hard, but if somebody brought cake in for work, I would have a small piece. In the end, I've found that it didn't make any difference. My body fat stayed the same, etc.

    Bottom line, regardless of the craft, if a person wishes to be completely consumed by what they do, it's their life. Whatever floats your boat.

    I know I went a little off topic, but I felt inspired to rant. Thanks for reading.
