To conceal rather than to reveal..

I don't know if I'm alone on this or not, but it *seems* I am.

I, personally, find it far more attractive for a person (in my case, a guy) to not flaunt their body -- I don't mean wearing a full bodysuit ( ) but not posing 99% nude in magazines, and so on. It's a lot more attractive to me to wear slightly revealing clothing, showing just enough, than to wear very revealing clothing. In some stars' cases, it shows they aren't just trying to make themselves into a sex symbol.

Am I the only one who thinks this? Opinions from both sides would be appreciated, actually.

You are very right!! Just picture AB Bono in his leather pants.... just his leather pants.... soaked in sweat!! MMMMmmmmnnn!!

I think that guys look really sexy in tight boxer brief's... although they must have a good body to look good!

I agree with you. I have always felt that way. Maybe I'm weird but nudity does not really push my button. I much prefer the way a body looks in clothes- tight clothes, a little reavealing. My favorite thing to dress Bono in would be very tight black pants, heeled boots, and a light colored shirt unbuttoned but not all the way, with his rosary. No shades please, and lots of pretty hair to make his face cute and to dig my hands into. I really don't want to see Bono in shorts, or short sleeves, or nude. I think he is a package that looks best wrapped just the right way. Really all guys are. NOBODY looks good in everything, or just anything, or even nothing!

We all like things a certain way and that's not bad and nothing to be ashamed of! We all have our turn ons and turn offs. I would not go so far as to say nudity was a turn-off, but I do find a guy dressed in clothes that flatter him and that I find attractive much more of a turn on than if he were naked or mostly naked. I have to say it's the way the guy looks with the clothes ON that gets me hot and makes my heart pound.

I think in most cases things are best left to the imagination. I really do like the way a guy looks IN clothes rather than without them. No that this has anything to do with U2, but I also dislike the 'muscleman' 'Mr. Universe' bodybuilder look many girls swoon over. Am I alone on that one?

I agree with you 100%. And no, you're not alone on the Mr. Universe thing -- that is a huge turn-off for me, actually. It just isn't attractive to me at all.

I agree with U2kitten! Id much rather see a guy that had clothes on that left a little to the imagination rather then a guy that is fully nude!

I agree
SO do I, but with the part about the pretty hair and no shades too. Must have the eyes. And not facial hair to spoil his chin. About the clothes, yes, sexy clothes turn me on more than none. Nakedness can be, well, gross. I'm not into body hair, armpits, toes, etc. This may sound strange, but sweat on a clothed body, with the clothes sticking to the guy, is very sexy to me, but sweaty naked bodies, ewwww. That's just me I guess.

LOL I am just the opposite.. sweaty clothing but sweaty naked

However on the original topic, I prefer not seeing 99.9% naked men in ads and stuff. Sexy and a little revealing clothing is good.

I definitely agree. Sometimes at work they'll be passing around these e-mails of naked guys, or wearing only a G-string, and it's a turn-off for me, coz I thing they look gay. I think that really masculine guys like to leave certain things to the imagination. I like a little teasing (thinking Larry Mullen's unbuttoned shirts) but nothing too revealing.

I agree 100%...I like Bono (or any hot guy for that matter) dressed but showing just a little skin, like a nice chest with Bono-fur. Total male nudity is not good unless its someone your very familiar with in the privacy of your own home...or wherever you might be!

I think things like Playgirl pictures are creepy and I get embarrased at male underwear adds with their enhanced "packages".

I know we've had the discussion of "would you look if there were nude pictures of Bono" and I said yes, but I'm all talk...I don't think I would want to see him naked. It would ruin it for me to see the things only Ali should be seeing. All I have to do is picture what a naked guy looks likes like from the back when he's bending over and that cures me from ever wanting to see naked men (other than my husband)!

I'm with you!! I have never liked the totally naked or 'porn' thing. I like the guy in sexy clothes that show the shape of his body- it is well beyond me how any girl can find today's styles of baggy pants hanging off their asses with the underwear showing hot. I look at them in the store and I want to puke! I want the pants to show the shape of the buns please! I want them fastened around the waist and show the shape of the legs, and everything. Dressing sexy is way sexier than nudity. I'd rather watch ZOOTV Sydney anytime than Bono in the buff.

One more thing Elevatedmole, please don't ever let anyone tell you that it's because you're young that you feel that way, and when you 'get older' or 'mature' your taste will change- mine never has! I have felt this way as long as I can remember having 'those' feelings, back to puberty. My taste in that, and in men in general, has never changed in all these years (I'm 40 now!) and it NEVER will! I like what I like, I don't like what I don't like, that's what I am, that's not going to change, and there is NOTHING ANYONE can do to to change my mind and I'm proud of that!

You know, I was thinking when I was posting this thread,"I wonder if someone will just tell me it's because I'm young?".

Thanks for understanding I hate ageism.

Totally, totally agree. And the Mr Universe thing... ugh. My mom digs that, but most of the other girls I know don't at all.
Adam here will help me explain.

Adam: Glad to help!
Figure one: Adam naked (dude you ever notice he's only got one nipple in this picture?)

Now, while you can't underestimate the power of the willy, this picture doesn't make me quite as hot and bothered as say... THIS one

oh yeah baby... just enough skin showing to make you want to unzip that thing the rest of the way, oui?

Now, a little skin doesn't hurt though, as evidenced here.

oooo maaan... this is too much, uh, excuse me for a few minutes

LMFAO Twin...take a deep breath!

I agree with the men (and in fact women also) being clothed. Anyone can look attractive when they wear nice clothes that accentuate their positive features...but the more they take off...yeach. Though the occasional nude male doesn't bother me

Note: Another turn on for me is hair...I like longer hair on guys Don't know why I decided to share that...just did

you know what...we always talk and joke about what we'd "do" with the guys, but for me it's 90% joking 95% of the time...i mean, all these comments are really just for fun, imho...

Well, some guys look better with some clothes on (even if they have a great physique). It just gives them more style, more allure..

But I shouldn't talk right now because I'm currently looking for nude Ewan photos. I wonder if in the next Star Wars movie Ewan will drop his jedi knickers and show his real lightsaber... (this was stolen from the man himself)
