Because we hear over and over how visual men are. As women, we know from puberty that our physical appearance is HUGE in attracting men. So when we don't "measure up" in any way to the ideal, we cannot help but feel anxious.
Perfectly understandable BUT..
I was a player before marriage, got more than my fair share of female attention.
I often passed over the sexy model type for the cute chubby chick with the confident bubbly, dare I say, "****y" attitude and soft curves that never ended.
Experience told me I`d have more fun, in bed and out of it.
Granted I think I`m a bit different than the average guy concerning what attracts me but I can`t be alone.
I`ve desired many girls whose body image is outside what our culture states is desirable and more than enjoyed myself by getting lost in those "imperfect" yet beautiful bodies.
The problem women with poor body image is that they think in absolutes concerning whats desirable for a man and whats not.
It`s true many of my wifes "imperfections" are what attract me to her.
It sounds so loving and intimate to say my wifes c-section scar reminds me of what she`s given me and is attractive to me.
The truth is it`s not just "loving and intimate", it`s also primal and makes me hard for her.
My wife is taking a nap lying on her belly in the nude with nothing covering her right beside me as I type this.
Does she look like Angelina Jolie?
Has Angelina Jolie ever gotten me as excited as she does regularly just looking at her?
I know who I`d be on top of if they were both here offering it to me right now and it isn`t the cultural sex symbol.
