the per­cent­age of gay and bi­sex­ual men who said they find

six-packs at­trac­tive

Mark says: “I can’t re­ally re­late to ei­ther of th­ese things as I’d never ac­tively seek a part­ner just based on how well their abs show! I think peo­ple find six packs at­trac­tive as they are a sign of hard work and phys­i­cal fit­ness which is a great com­bi­na­tion! It’s a pity that 50% have this opin­ion and I be­lieve it comes from in­se­cu­rity once again, and the be­lief that you need to have the body of a God to set­tle down with a part­ner.”

Chris says: “I think we just put too much pres­sure on our­selves and our looks. To be frank and hon­est, if you’re hav­ing sex then that per­son clearly sees some­thing that you’re re­fus­ing to! Start­ing a light ex­er­cise regime will make you feel con­fi­dent and yes, more at­trac­tive. Re­leas­ing en­dor­phins will make you feel pos­i­tive about whip­ping off that shirt! Make a start, it can be a slow process but what is stop­ping you?”
