Curvy

14 May

I find women with curves attractive. Despite movies, tv and magazines implying the opposite, most guys find women with curves attractive. Sure, you might run in to a guy here and there who is only into stick figures and you might find the equivalent guys who are attracted to the mega-ladies who are on the super-thick end of the spectrum but just about every guy out there can appreciate a shapely women.

When I say shapely, this is what I’m talking about:

Sexy and shapely

And I think this meme sums things up nicely:
Not overweight, just curvy

But somewhere along the way, some confusion has crept in. The media started indicating that male Homo Sapiens are after bags of bones wrapped so tightly in skin that we can see every bone, muscle and tendon. Young women see this shape everywhere and think it’s standard issue:

Bag of bones

Like I said, there are some guys that are going to be attracted to a woman who looks like this but there’s a pretty creepy crossover between guys who are only attracted to women this skinny and guys who end up getting locked away for not respecting the laws relating to the age of consent. Even if I’m wrong and more guys are into this look than I realise, that doesn’t make it healthy and we end up with young girls looking like this as a result:

ANOREXIA

When I see someone this thin, the last thing I’m thinking about is attraction. I want to drag her to the nearest eatery and feed her. I want to put her on a drip. I can’t even remotely understand how anyone possibly could be attracted to someone a human body so near to death.

Brazil seems to be going the other direction. There’s a serious trend towards curviness over there and when you take a look at the winner of miss Bum Bum Brazil 2012 here, you can certainly see there’s good reason for that.

Of course, that’s lead to its own problems. Plastic surgery is a booming industry in Brazil and some of the procedures are pretty insane as far as I’m concerned. The two procedures that are doing my head in are butt implants and silicone injections.

Butt implants don’t seem to work out too well…

And silicone injections might be even worse…

I’m a guy, so I don’t really know the pressure that women are under to be attractive but I can tell pretty well what looks healthy and what does not. Generally speaking, looking healthy correlates quite a bit with being attractive. Instead of starving yourself to death or having your body cut open and things stuffed inside it to give you extra lumps, maybe it’s worth considering just having a healthy lifestyle and accepting that there are guys out there who like all sorts of body shapes.

One last thing though, it’s important to accept your body for what it is, but that doesn’t mean that you should go disregarding reality and trying to adjust the meaning of words to make yourself feel better. For example, this lady is sorely mistaken.

Beautiful?

Crazy bitch tip: Tell yourself that being obese is beautiful as much as you want, it’s not going to convince anyone to be more attracted to you and it’s not going to make you any healthier.
