Men get turned on when they see women with their body exposed. But what about the other way around. When women see men who are shirtless, do they get turned on?

Yes.

 

Most women are physically attracted to men, just as most men are physically attracted to women. The physical aspect of sensual attraction may not be as strong in most women as most men, but it's a fundamental of human sexuality.

 

For example... Most women may not be that turned on usually by seeing some guy that they don't know or don't like personally half naked, but if the man is someone that they know, and like or may even already be attracted to, it is definitely a turn on. For most men, our personal opinion of a woman or whether we know them or not makes little difference as to how turned on we get seeing them half naked. That said, there are always exceptions to the rule, but this is generally the case.

 

There's also a more subtle concept involved of subconscious/conscious perceptions. This is true for almost all humans male or female: We're usually naked when we have sex. We usually see each other clothed. When you see someone of the opposite sex in a nude or partially nude state, your mind automatically goes there. It's like when you smell your favorite food cooking you get hungry, often before you even consciously realize what you're smelling.

Women aren't as visually sexual as men, but they do still desire certain physical characteristics.

It depends. If the guy is a fat blob, probably not.

True...

Though  I know a lot of women who prefer legs, thighs than chest, I think it boils down to "different strokes for different folks".

That may be true but I don't think women would be attracted to a shirtless average male. Men are shirtless more often than women and it usually isn't considered sexual. Women, on the other hand, are almost never shirtless and whenever they are, it's considered sexual. It's different for men that are exceptionally fit because they're above average. And women don't need to be above average in order to have breasts.

 

Also, evolution has selected for men to be more visual when it comes to sexual attraction. They pay attention to things like a woman's breasts and waist-to-hip ratio. Women pay attention to social status and money because evolution selected for them to look for a mate that can provide for a child as well as her.

Well that's not entirely true though

 

Men and Women shirtless in calendar/pin up style pictures: Sexual

Men and women shirtless/top less sunbathing or walking around the house: Not sexual

 

In either case it's only sexual if you make it so. women could be outside painting the house topless and it wouldn't be sexual, but bras tend to be more practical for women in general. 

 

If you see a sun bathing topless woman and think it's sexual, it's only cause you generally like breasts and she's hot(to you), just like some women will find it sexual when they see shirtless hot guys on the beach.

im a male too, and i can appreciate a good male physique,for example, of a bodybuilders. its like admiring the beauty of a horse. you admire the muscular definitions of its legs,and its smooth coat, but it doesnt mean you want to have sex with it.

It turns out that sexually, women are probably more like men than has been indicated by the "common wisdom". It turns out that men made that up, (surprise), and western men at that, and had more to do with gender bias and sociological norms than reality.

 

 

Turns Out Women Have Really, Really Strong Sex Drives: Can Men Handle It?

 

Bergner profiles the work of a series of sexologists, all of whom have, after a series of fascinating studies with animal and human subjects, come to what is essentially the same conclusion.

 

Women want sex just as much as men do, and this drive is "not, for the most part, sparked or sustained by emotional intimacy and safety." When it comes to the craving for sexual variety, the research Bergner assembles suggests that women may be "even less well-suited for monogamy than men."

 

Bergner's work puts what may be the last nail in the coffin of the old consensus that women use sex as a means to get something else they really want, such as enduring monogamous emotional intimacy and the goods and safety that come in marriage with a protector and provider. In her review, Salon's normally hyperbole-averse Tracy Clark-Flory was beside herself: "This book should be read by every woman on earth," she writes; "the implications are huge."

 

It's not, of course, as if feminism, or Internet porn, or any other feature of modernity has suddenly created desires that never previously existed. Rather, as Bergner and his researchers show, science is finally asking the right questions about what women want, perhaps because enough of us are ready to hear the answer.

 

If Bergner is right, men's and women's libidos are far more similar than previously imagined. If he's right, and the formidable data he marshals suggests he is, then our sexual scripts need to shift to accommodate this new reality for everyone's sake.

That's true. Both men and women get aroused at the same rate while watching pornography. However, women care slightly less about appearance and slightly more about social status than men from an evolutionary perspective. That's why the majority of people that view pornography on the Internet are men.

 

For 27 countries, demographic data on actual age at marriage provided a validity check on questionnaire data. Females were found to value cues to resource acquisition in potential mates more highly than males. Characteristics signalling reproductive capacity were valued more by males than by females. These sex differences may reflect different evolutionary selection pressures on human males and females; they provide powerful cross-cultural evidence of current sex differences in reproductive strategies.

I think the key word is slightly. While there are differences in general, they're subtle. The article I quoted noted that, (although the indications in your quote are true), it's not due to the sexual priorities of a woman, or a need for sexual exclusivity and intimacy and a protector and provider. What your quote shows is a sociological phenomena, not a biological one.

 

Those 27 countries were probably male dominated, since most cultures are, and a woman from a sociological perspective would need a good protector and provider to survive in that culture, so that's who they seek, but that doesn't mean that's what fuels their biological sex drive.

 

Women would probably much more prefer to have sex with the gardener or the pool man, but they're not as likely to marry them, and the social norms of how guarded a woman is supposed to be with her sexual promiscuity holds them back from their natural desires.

 

Men may still be the majority of internet porn viewers, but it's a slim majority. Most women that don't watch porn, or just don't admit to it, are being held back by social norms, and not by physical desire, or their inclination to enjoy it.

 

The fact is, an estimated 40 percent of internet pornography is viewed by women and, in a 2006 study, 17 percenet of women surveyed self-identified as addicted to internet porn. Thirteen percent of women surveyed admitted to watching porn at the office, although I assume (hope) they postpone their happy endings until they have left their cubicles.

 

I also assume the numbers will increase as the availability, visual quality and novelty of the stimuli continue to increase.

 

We like to picture the compulsive internet porn user as a guy with two-day stubble, a video-monitor tan and pile of dirty Kleenex at his feet. Me? I'm the poor blameless victims of the porn addict's compulsions.

 

Cough cough (bullsh*t) cough.

Yeah, but when women just bare their midriff, it drives guys wild. So, you'd think that a man with no shirt whatsoever would drive a woman wild since he's exposing more. But for some reason, it doesn't seem to have the same effect on women.

That makes sense. Women are more like men when it comes to sexuality despite what's perpetuated in today's societies. It's sad that some have been brainwashed into believing they aren't supposed to seek out sex with other men. The idea that men should be the ones to seek it out is flawed.

Men and women don't always find the same stuff attractive. Men may pay attention to a woman's midriff and women may pay attention to man's shoulders or back.

For example...

For most men, our personal opinion of a woman or whether we know them or not makes little difference as to how turned on we get seeing them half naked.

We usually see each other clothed. When you see someone of the opposite sex in a nude or partially nude state, your mind automatically goes there. It's like when you smell your favorite food cooking you get hungry, often before you even consciously realize what you're smelling.

 

 

As a female, I can pretty much confirm this.

 

I can see a "hot" shirtless guy and enjoy looking at him, but it doesn't actually sexually turn me on, especially if I don't know him. Like the film "Magic Mike" for example--it's attractive shirtless men doing sexy things. It's fun to watch, but I didn't have to go home and masturbate afterwards :laugh:

 

But if it's a man I care about, like a friend I have a crush on or my actual partner, then yes. Even if he doesn't have a "great bod" or whatever. I've dated men society would find attractive, and some that they wouldn't, but they all turned me on once we got into a good relationship. For me, it's more indirect--he's sweet, he's caring, he's fun, I like him, and once we've already been together, I know what he's like in bed and can anticipate the fun we're going to have--so it turns me on to see him shirtless or nude. It's different than the male response, which is more purely physical (well, most of the time, I suppose some men can be like me too just as some women are different, but it's less common). This is also why women you're dating may take a little longer than you like to be ready to get in bed. Once she likes you, trusts you, knows you like and really care about her, she will get turned on by you and probably want you all the time :laugh: Patience is great in that situation; and a little "no pressure" at the beginning can pay off big time down the road.

 

It's hard for me to understand that ability to get turned on just by seeing a random pair of breasts or whatever, just as I imagine it's hard for some men to really be able to understand what I'm saying. But that's the best way I can explain it :D
