John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant – we can probably make a list of most politicians, athletes and rock stars. Because they’re perpetually attracted to new women.
Because they’re high profile, rich, ambitious men who are desirable to these women.
It is entirely based on physical attraction, which we feel instantly with the release of dopamine, serotonin, and testosterone.
–Cat Dear Cat, Thoughtful and provocative question, and I’m going to attempt to tackle it even though I’m no therapist, historian or biologist.
First off, I want to acknowledge that everything you wrote, in my estimation, is true.
GOOD men can appreciate the female form, either clothed or naked.
GOOD men are aroused by images of clothed or naked women (but not as much as you’d think.) Without covering the entire landscape of debates about DNA or evolution or propagation of the species, here’s my take on the whole thing: Men, since the beginning of time, were designed to spread their seed.
Because they’re so important that they don’t think the rules apply to them.
Because they travel a lot and are frequently exposed to temptation.So Tiger sleeps with a waitress in a Denny’s parking lot and he loses a half billion dollars, his wife, his kids, and his golf mojo. So even if we establish that men are driven by sex, it’s far from the whole story, as evidenced by the 50 million married men in the United States. As long as he treats you well and doesn’t take action on his desires, you’ve got a good man whose desire for you is stronger than his real sexual impulse to be with someone else. It meant that, no, I don’t have to worry about that attractive busty blonde at the party, because she doesn’t mean any more to him than the tall, willowy brunette with the short skirt.Somehow, I don’t think he considered that with his pants around his ankles. I have to say, this was a major growing up point for me, when I read Manslations by Jeff Mac, and looked at the evidence, and realised that, yes indeed, most men are on some level sexually attracted to most attractive women. Other attractive women are a fact of life, might as well get used to it.What is it that men get out of looking/gazing at beautiful women, nude or otherwise?I have read on other websites that men actually get a chemical “high” in their brain when they see an attractive woman and that is why they are so drawn to look at other women even when they are in love with another.Men, regardless of relationship status, get a chemical high in seeing attractive women.
