Very interesting post, Cookies.

Oh, yeah, they'd be just as gnarly and unkempt. But even in prison they do each other's hair!

Just goes to show you that women are so beautiful that even other women are attracted to them...
I question if a high percentage of women are attracted to other women. As a teenager I lived in a dorm with other girls from the age of 14-20 and never saw or experienced sexual activity among girls. Looking back there is one girl I believe may have been bi or a lesbian but other than that, none.

I do think it's kind of a thing the media promotes these days so has become seemingly more common, more of a fad, but really, the women I know like men.

Let's cut the BS

Good looking women outnumber good looking men perhaps 20:1..

A woman could be practically butt-ugly, but if she has a great body, she will be in very high demand...Guys? Plenty of ugly guys with good physiques....They are still ugly...Heck, Ive seen guys go absolutely bonkers over a woman with nothing more than a great rack or a tight ass..and nothing more..

Other than the Statue Of David, practically all other classic art features the female form..

Ive seen pretty nice looking women with hideous looking, out of shape guys....When was the last time you saw a really good looking guy with a fat/ugly woman??

The good news is that if you are a good looking guy, the world is your oyster...

TFY

Yeah, I am a woman not attracted to other women. I am totally comfortable pointing out a beautiful woman or complimenting one, but I don't want to perform sexual acts on her!

With that said, I have had a few odd, random dreams about the owner of my gym who is lesbian woman transitioning into a man.

You say this as a heterosexual male.

Gay men and straight women may have a different response.

Heck I live in San Francisco. There are tons of BEAUTIFUL men here.

And on that note, gay men tend to make much more of an effort when it comes to their appearance and it shows. Better bodies, better grooming, better clothes, better postures etc.

Goes to show all of this primping is for male attention.

And lesbians? Let's say lipstick lesbians are not the majority.

The gay community would probably just throw off the curve, Id agree...

But that doesn't erase the fact that a woman could go pretty far in attractiveness with nothing more than a favorable hip/waist or a set of DD's....FAR more than a guy with 21" arms could go...

That is because males value female bodies so much.

And still I would argue I see better physicists on males on average. At least in my area - much more likely to see guys with work out bods than women.

For instance I am on a Subway right now surrounded by strangers.

Guy sitting across from me is fit, has a nice face, great fitting suit, and is well groomed with a shaven head etc. He is attractive.

One other more average dude, plain dress and grooming, not overweight but not fit, I can tell he would look pretty good naked, one obese dude, and 4 females. One has an "unfortunate" face and average body. 2 are obese, and one is just frumpy and not made up at all.

I am not seeing this 20:1 ratio.

I agree with you. A lot of this is just affirmation of the commenter’s sexuality. I am heterosexual female and I come from an area where I see way more ’abovd average’ and head turning females than males. But that’s because I come from an area where women spend a lot of time and $ on their appearance....I don’t think men really get the full scope of this. Makes me lol when guys post ‘natural’ beauties and it’s a chick with natural makeup, tightliner, eyelash extensions, and a good butt and breast implant surgeon.

Women are better at being pretty and guys are better at picking up heavy things. It's science.

Women Put More Effort Into Their Appearance
Make-up and clothes wise, maybe.


The top models and pornstars are women

Top models are female because most consumers of fashion and makeup are women. Wouldn't make sense for a man to model women's clothes would it?

Porn stars are mostly women because it's geared towards male viewers.



More women are seen as 'physically desirable' than men are

If you go to any online dating site, it will soon be obvious how much more picky women are than men in terms of physical appearance. When it comes to desirability, men will rate around half of women he sees as 'physically desirable' but for women, only 10-15% of men she sees will be rated as 'physically desirable'. That's a big difference!

This shows two things. That women are more picky then men are in who they choose to date, and that women on average are more attractive then men are.


More men are probably looking for hookups, and so they set the bar lower.
OR, they say yes to everything to leave their options open.

Being more picky doesn't mean women look better.



There's A High Percentage Of Women Who Are Attracted To Women

[U]This just means women's sexuality is more fluid.
I'd like to add that there is this general idea that men get better looking as they age (to a point), while women get worse.
So also depends at what time point you're looking at.

I don't think this is universal. I know a man who is way more interested in faces than body. It's not like body doesn't matter to him, but the face is more important. Of course there are men who would take a toothless woman with a perfect body. In an old neighborhood I lived in, a young couple moved in and the girl (I say girl because they were very young, like 22) looked amazing from 50 yards away. But once everyone got to know her, all the men called her "butter face."

I really can't think of any man I know who is with a woman with an amazing body and not also a very pretty face.....

Men are more likely to be ugly. It's not that women are picky, men are not naturally aesthetic like women are.

Funny, awhile back a radio station had a discussion, and the callers agreed being ugly is more of a man thing. I'm inclined to agree.

Women's bodies look sexy in more ways than a man's. A woman can be skinny and be beautiful. A woman can be bbw and still be gorgeous. Some bbw are absolutely stunning with beautiful faces and hourglass figures. When men get overweight, they get beer guts. Their facial angularity gets covered with fat.

I admit I find maybe 20% of men attractive. Some are all right, but not super sexy.

Men are also more likely to have a host of unattractive features. A woman may be on the unattractive side, but most women will make up for it somehow, like with having a radiant smile, big boobs, sexy legs, etc.

Many straight men could take a page put of the gay book and work out, but they dont...

Worth reading the thread for this dispassionate analysis befitting a Seinfeld show.
