Men scared of women with perfect figures

13 Sep 2007, New Paper

WOMEN, take heart and junk that diet.

According to a survey by UK women's magazine MORE, men are perfectly happy with a woman's 'wobbly bits' if she knows how to have a good time.

According to the survey, most men are not able to handle the 'pressure' of sleeping with a woman with the perfect figure.

The survey involved 1,000 men and women, reported the New Zealand Press Association (NZPA).

According to the editor of More magazine, Lisa Smosarski: 'Men like curvy women who look after themselves and have sex appeal, women who know how to have a good time without worrying about their calorie intake.

'Some men feel intimidated by women with super bodies and find it hard to talk to a body-perfect woman, let alone take their clothes off in front of her.

'The truth is, men are happy with us the way we are - it's women who point out our flaws.

' It's time we did ourselves a favour and relaxed a bit.'

The basis for Ms Smosarki's comments were the findings of the survey.

Around 88 per cent of men surveyed admitted that sleeping with the 'perfect' woman, figure-wise, would put 'too much' pressure on them.

Only 1 in 10 men preferred women with ' a great body who's dedicated to diet and exercise'.

And 88 per cent said that they would choose a woman with 'wobbly bits who's up for a good time'.


So who were the most desirable women according to the men?

About 56 per cent stated that a man's ideal female body included a small waist and a big bottom.

American actress Scarlett Johansson was listed as the celebrity with the most ideal shape, according to 44 per cent of the respondents.

But in the face of such beauty, 9 out of 10 men said that they would not want to take off their own clothes in her presence.

The second most attractive shape, according to 34 per cent of men, were women with big breasts and bottoms.

In this category, singer Beyonce Knowles scored as the second most desirable body among the current crop of celebrities.

Only 6 per cent of men said that they desired skinny women.

Not surprisingly, only 3 per cent of men wanted to see 'Posh Spice' - Victoria Beckham - nude, despite her toned and taut body.

Other figure attributes that men like in women include a 'flexible' body, (40 per cent), soft (41 per cent) and curvy (90 per cent).

Think rounded tummies are undesirable? Around a third of the men (35 per cent) said that a rounded stomach was desirable.

However, one in ten men (11 per cent) said that love handles were off-putting as were flat chests, stretch marks, hairy armpits and hairy nipples.

Only a minority (14 per cent) said they found a tattoo a turn-on.
