Men often see other men's bodies in locker rooms, at urinals, etc. The basic reality is that *most* men aren't tall, muscular machines with 10-inch penises, and their regular exposure to flawed, average-looking males reinforces this fact.

 Women, however, are less likely to see the naked bodies of their average-looking peers (most girls don't walk around completely naked in the locker room, and women obviously don't have urinals) and *more* likely to see the naked bodies of actresses and porn stars.
 Basically, the main examples of female bodies that they see are of attractive women who've either been airbrushed or covered with makeup. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Typically, women are more insecure about their bodies than men are. Is this partly because women are less exposed to everyday female nudity?

Hmm. I suppose I have never thought of that. Seems to make sense, though.

Not every man has a 10 inch penis?

Poor bastards.

News just in, we don't look down at urinals. You stare straight ahead and don't compare. Some bars even have newspapers on the wall to read.

Hell, even conversation stops once you're standing there.

Women are of no value to the world without their looks. Sorry girls, it's a man's world.

First I think not necessarily so that women are more insecure about their bodies. Alot of gyms are chock full of men.

Secondly, the insecurity comes with focus - those who focus more on that notion will BE more insecure because that's where they bank their self-esteem, even though there's no way to achieve the perfection they desire, thus causing insecurity.

Exactly, it is simply one of the unwritten rules of the public toilet

I think the main reason lies in the fact that most men(not including me of course) regard women as the tool of their sexual intercourse.
oh,my god!

In China, the standard length of penis is 12 inch.

I go to the gym and women do get naked there. I would have to say no. I think they're more insecure by what they read on women's magazines like how to lose weight etc.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 5/12/07 - 6:11:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Insightful, I'll have to say yes on this one.

No times a thousand. I think the story is way, way off-base. Men don't see each other's peni every day at urinals and walking around naked, snapping each other with towels and wrestling in lockerrooms every day.
It has to do with women being more objectified in the media, period. A male-dominated society has idealized the female form and imposed it upon us through unrealistic media images.

i don't know, I agree it's not a daily occurence but I know I could go to a swimming pool right now and see naked men who don't care a great deal about showing their rolls of fat when getting changed. There could be a significant difference for women. You're right about the media images but this could be a small factor.

14 yrs ago - Monday 5/28/07 - 10:20:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
I agree but its not just about men seeing other men in changing rooms. Even when you see a naked man in an ad it will generally be in a comedy context and the man will generally be middle aged and average looking. When you see a naked woman in an add she will inevitably be stunning.

No, it's because the media continues to put forth the idea that you can only be pretty if you're tall, skinny, blonde, and 100 pounds.

People always say that, but seriously - how often do you see that type of woman being promoted? There's basically Kate Moss, and that's it. Every other model around, at the moment at least, seems to be famous for being deliberately 'curvy'.

14 yrs ago - Monday 5/28/07 - 7:40:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I always thought women saw other women more than men saw other men.
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 9:08:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never thought of that, but its prolly true.
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 10:23:43 PM EST (GMT-5)

Uhmn.. not to mention the glorification of women with purchased breasts, and layers of make-up by the media, and in-turn, a brain-washed society?

I think we (women) all know that not all women look like airbrused / photoshopped swimsuit models, but that doesn't change the attitude of a society.

13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 7/15/07 - 1:40:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never thought about it like that, but yeah, that makes sense.
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 7/15/07 - 1:50:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
If every man had a ten inch penis I would still be a virgin.

And to answer the question, I think it is because women are more pretentious.

13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 8/21/07 - 6:14:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
seriously, we are a lot more exposed to female nudity. Ever seen H&M posters? Underware-adds are everywhere. Men are far less exposed to so called "perfect" images of their bodies. I'm not muscular, but it realy strengthens my coonfidence to see a 80kg man at 1,6meters in the pool.

As a side comment, the women who pays to make their lower sets of lips (wtf is the english word for those?) realy hasn't got a thing. AT ALL! STOP! PLEASE OH GOD!

Men who care about that are called something, you know.

cinema for adult viewing producers.

Hey, ou should know, they ain't natural. Most people would get that kind of roosters too if they were doped on viagra. Here's a fact for you, most sperm in cinema for adult viewing is false, cuzz the men are so full of viagra that they don't have a chance to get an eject

I agree with that. As someone who uses gym locker rooms often I can say that guys just walk around naked. I assumed it was the same with women. I'm suprised it's not!

I think you were way off base with this one mellow. Our exposure to nude female bodies is far greater than to men.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 9/23/07 - 12:27:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
I actually think its the opposite. Women are more exposed to other female bodies, and this is why we are more insecure because we are comparing ourselves.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 9/23/07 - 7:07:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
Judging by the comments in this thread, I in measuring think the exposure to other people of the same sex, sex is irrelevant.
