“The whole concept of a macronutrient, like that of a calorie, is determining our language game in such a way that the conversation is not making sense." - Dr. Kurt Harris
Oh yeah, I believe the belly - specifically that area below the belly button - is every womans' nemesis. I am so interested to read about what the guys really think. My boyfriend thinks my belly looks lovely (certainly it is better, and flatter, now with the 5kg weight loss) but I'm somewhat obsessed with the degree of fat covering everything. You show me a woman that loves her body 100% and ... well frankly I just dont believe she's out there
Another one of these threads?
...toned women ARE curvy.
I am a woman but I know men certainly aren't monolithic in what they are attracted to (contrary to what a lot of media suggests, I suppose). Many adore flat stomachs or even six-pack abs. Others prefer a softer, curved, or even chubby belly. Some like very skinny women... very fat women... and everything in between. Thank goodness. Not every guy even has a consistent 'type' of woman they are attracted to. Whoever you are and whatever you look like, there are men who find you hot.
The one thing I hear most of the men I know professing a preference for is natural breasts. But then there are plenty that like or don't care if you have obvious implants (as evidenced by their popularity in all sorts of looks-based industries).
I think it's kind of dumb to ever talk about what 'men like'. If some guys didn't like flat-chested girls with BMIs of 16, I would be alone and unloved. But I've never suffered from a lack of male attention.
Here's the pertinent bit of dialogue from Pulp Fiction:
Fabienne: I was looking at myself in the mirror.
Fabienne: I wish I had a pot.
Butch: You were lookin' in the mirror and you wish you had some pot?
Fabienne: A pot. A pot belly. Pot bellies are sexy.
Butch: Well you should be happy, 'cause you do.
Fabienne: Shut up, Fatso! I don't have a pot! I have a bit of a tummy, like Madonna when she did "Lucky Star," it's not the same thing.
Butch: I didn't realize there was a difference between a tummy and a pot belly.
Fabienne: The difference is huge.
Butch: You want me to have a pot?
Fabienne: No. Pot bellies make a man look either oafish, or like a gorilla. But on a woman, a pot belly is very sexy. The rest of you is normal. Normal face, normal legs, normal hips, normal ass, but with a big, perfectly round pot belly. If I had one, I'd wear a tee-shirt two sizes too small to accentuate it.
Butch: You think guys would find that attractive?
Fabienne: I don't give a damn what men find attractive. It's unfortunate what we find pleasing to the touch and pleasing to the eye is seldom the same.
I, for one, think that flat bellies are hot too. As far as the part of a woman that I like the most though, I'm kind of an ass man myself.
Ah, even though I'm a breast man I do have a slight tummy fetish. I'm not a fan of 6 pack abs on women though.
