    First, I must say that this thread, and it's companion, has the potential to be a great resource and spark for discussion on beauty, body and anatomy, and moving this here from the hidden girls forum is certainly a good thing, thank you.

    I do however agree somewhat with Arttorney in that I found your initial statement somewhat offending, as well as some of the posts made by women in one of the threads I'm assuming you were talking about, daestwen.

    I mean, why is it (almost) always assumed, that if pictures of a attractive woman is posted by a man on the internet, it is for the purpose of looking at her as a piece of meat? Are we men incapable of looking at women without stripping them of value? Seriously, you'd be surprised at how often we guys get that thrown at us, if we dare discuss a womans looks, we're being assholes.

    Obviously some of the comments and pictures posted before were out of line, but sometimes I do get offended when someone jumps in with the "men objectifying women" angle. The thread I saw did not at all seem serious, it was a bunch of over the top "boobs!" comments and if anything was a parody of objectification.

    I'm sorry if I implied it was the general rule, because it's not. But there has been some pretty line-breaking stuff posted in the lounge. The reason I posted this thread is because I know all of you don't want to be offensive when stuff like that comes up, so I thought a thread about it where everyone is welcome to post pictures would keep the rude banter (which is more the problem than the pictures) to a minimum.

    So if you'll accept my apologies for the generalization, I hope this thread can continue to be awesome for everyone. :]

    As for the vid, at least it's one vid, not people posting multiple vids/animations of "bouncing" and then people quoting those same things (quoting images or vids of the same thing is one of my pet peeves, lol - I saw it already stop posting it as it's on the same damn thread). That doesn't excuse behavior that all men are bad either.

    I like men, I get along with them just fine (and yeah women too) my Chinese sign is year of the Dragon which is considered most compatible with Cock.



    Funny as hell. Sorry.

    Oh, and elderly men, we shouldn't forget them. They are so interesting. For example Ilaekae, but there are others too.

    Beards, that's the thing in this category - for me at least.

    Here is some pictures from my reference folder. Pity I don't anymore know, where I got these.

    This guy is really quite delicious. Being 36, I just can't really go for the under 30s... so these 40s and up who look this good are just... good gawd perfection!!

    Are we men incapable of looking at women without stripping them of value?
    Well, if by value you mean 'Whats on the inside.', then the answer is 'kind of'. Men are programmed to look at women from a physical perspective. You can't overcome hundreds of thousands of years of evolution through a 100+ years of modern civilization.

    Now I don't know which thread daestwen was referring to when she says she was offended by the "objectification and sexualization of women.", but I fail to see how this thread is any different. And what does that even mean? Men objectifying and sexualizing women is in our genes. You might as well be offended by snoring or fighting. I mean, cmon. Lighten up.

    Invalid argument.

    If you have an urgent need to discuss these kind of matters please do so in another thread of your own please. You seem to have missed the intend of this thread.

    Anyway, some more images. It's all in the moustache, gents Think all of these are portraits of generals from the american civil war, I fail at naming reference properly in my folders...

    I think it's because there is more variation with the older stars. When I look at a lot of modern stars they sort of blend into each other. That's goes for the females as well.

    Um, anyhoo ... These are all from one of my ref folders. I think MMA fights are always a nice anatomical resource. With one fight, you get views of male form from all angles.
