"The Answer"...what women want


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about "The Answer"...what women want within the Women's Fitness (Female Bodybuilding and Training) category.

Excerpt: hi everyone, i've heard a lot of discussions lately regarding 'what size', 'what shape', etc women want in a bodybuilding male and thought i should use some research, rather than anecdotes, to inform the discussions. not to sound cocky, but i am going to "definitively" answer this question with science. in a very large study (described in detail below), women greatly preferred muscular men to less muscular men. more germane to this board is that they desired muscular men with

    Yessss!!!! I knew I wasnt busting my ass in the gym for nothing! Good thing I have personality & $$$"S to back it all up.
    A great body might help you get a number, but inteligence, sence of humor & a head of lettuce in your pocket will get you laid.

    Re: "The Answer"...what women want

    Thanks for posting this Kevin6. I believe there are similar studies showing that men have a preferred H/W ratio for women as well.
    I find this area fascinating and have been studying it on my own for a while. Feel free to post similar articles.

    For those with an interest, here are some good, accessible books:
    "The Red Queen : Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature" by Matt Ridley (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/006...lance&n=283155)

    "The Mating Mind : How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature" by Geoffrey Miller (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/038...lance&n=283155)

    "The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists" by Neil Strauss (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/006...lance&n=283155) This is an entertaining non-fiction story in its own right, but it also shows how pickup artists utilize principles from socio-evolutionary theories to attract women.

    Its my guess the 0.6 ratio refers to flat measures, i.e. if you measure a photo.

    Not measuring around the waist and shoulders.

    I don't know if I buy this. If they are talking about measuring circumference that sounds like freakishly huge shoulders. However, I've never measured my shoulder span. My chest is 46" waist is 34". I'll try shoulders when I get home.

    Not neccesarily, my father had a 52 in chest and a 32 in waist when he was in his prime.
