Here's the chart, for your edification.
Even Ace understands that a hard body is attractive to women, if that's all we're judging. Pretty straightforward. Jackman might be a little beefier, but it's a tight race, so to speak. So yeah. Fit and muscled is a turn on. You can pick around the edges about body hair, color of eyes, smile, yadayadayada...but fit is going to win every time. Remember we are talking superficial, don't know a thing about them, just eye candy judging here. But my answer for either man is definitely a, "Yes, please."
The other half of the study is where things get interesting. Here they asked men and women what the ideal body type was for women, and there was a decided gap between what each gender appreciated in women. Much is being made of this difference over in the comments at AoSHQ.
Here is my insightful analysis. And you can take this to the bank.
THAT is not perfection for women.
Kate Upton is going to look like Rosemary Clooney by the time she's 50. That is the end game, fellas.
But I don't imagine this study asked men what would be their ideal FOREVER...even if it did, men have a charming way of thinking a sweet young thing will never change.
Women, on the other hand, look at body types and yearn for one that allows them to eat whatever they want, wear whatever they want, and look fabulous as they age...NO SAGGING. This is the dream.
So Cameron Diaz, even though I think she is an idiot twit with hair that has more life than her brain, would definitely be my pick over Kate Upton. Not even a close decision.
|That's going to hold up, guys. Nicely.|
To prove my point, here is Cameron at 42.
THAT is why women think of someone like Cameron, naturally slim and athletic, as the ideal body type.
We aren't jealous of big tits, as many suggested over as AoSHQ. We just know what it takes to stay in some kind of decent shape as the years tug and pull...and it ain't pretty, easy, or fun.
