Now, why would you think we'd be interested in UNsexy men? LOL

I wanted to say that, but held my tongue. I've seen some posed pictures where they've made him look like some sort of sexy cowboy. And they accuse the MSM (another term I hate) of manipulation!

Malcolm Gladwell at #18? I must be weird for thinking he is sexy.

And Leonard Maltin should be somewhere on that list.

Nah, we've all got our weird "sexy" guy.

I got some really, really strange looks when I said that I'd totally want to have Henry Rollins' children and I think he's just amazing.

I think he's so hot, and I was totally shocked when several people there said they loved his work, but that he's ugly!

And the crowd was stilled.  One elderly man, wondering at the sudden silence, turned to the Child and asked him to repeat what he had said.  Wide-eyed, the Child raised his voice and said once again, "Why, the Emperor has no clothes!  He is naked!"

He's, he's raw not rugged but there's his entire publisher/poet side. I don't think he's Renaissance man but at least he's multifaceted.

Henry Rollins



Okay, so he hasn't aged all that well, but I've seen a lot worse!

I was told his "neck is icky" and "he's so mean". Go figure.

I think he's aged very well, but then, I have a thing for silver hair.

For reference, here's one of him these days:

Hmm, not bad, not bad at all! And silver hair is one of my fetishes too. That, and faces with character. :-)


I've found that men seem to have a narrow set of physical criteria for what they find attractive in women, but sexiness in men is harder to define. There's a lot of men who aren't much to look at, but there's just "something" about them that makes them irresistible. I think the biggest factor is self-confidence, the way they carry themselves. I've known men who were classically handsome but dateless, and others who weren't much to look at but had women throwing themselves at them.

Oddly, I think it's WOMEN that have a narrow set definition of what is attractive in women, not men.

I hang out on a site that is mostly men (and youngish men, at that), and the arguments they get into over what is a "hittable" are just amazing.

There really is a guy out there for every female body type/face type/hair length.

Someone will post a picture of say, some generic soft core porn type - skinny legs and butt, fake boobage, fake hair, etc., and only about half the guys posting comments will find her "hittable"; that is, attractive. This is generally the youngest contingent.

The older the guy is, the more likely he is to NOT find plastic Barbie-types good looking.

I was really surprised when I first started hanging out there that women like Shakira were considered the most attractive and Britney Spears and her ilk were the least favored.

Angelina Jolie is either adored or hated, surprisingly. I'd always thought she was beloved by all men, lol.

And a great many of the guys there actually seem to prefer women that are slightly overweight, according to current standards.

Things I've learned about men from hanging out there:

They don't like a lot of makeup, in general. That's if they even notice it.

They do not care about hair, except that most like it long and clean. Other than that, hairstyles mean nothing to them.

Nor do they care about manicures.

They do care about clothes; surprisingly, they like more rather than less most of the time. There are exceptions, of course.

The ones with the strongest relationships are the ones that are friends with their wives/girlfriends (duh, right?). Don't tell Cosmo that they really don't care to be "Wowed in bed in 25 new ways!!". It seems they'd rather you learn 25 new things about their favorite hobby.

I actually like hanging out there a lot, b/c I really knew nothing at all about what men really wanted in a partner until I started talking to the guys there. My parents didn't exactly have a healthy relationship, lol.

But the biggest shock to me was that I don't have to be a size 0 and a tramp in order to get a date (should I choose to date). I really had it stuck in my head at one point that only thin women were attractive. Not that size 0s AREN'T attractive, mind you. Just that those of us that can never BE a size zero can be attractive, too, and that there are men out there that will find us attractive.

That is the point.  If we notice it, we do not like it. - Think Tammy Faye Baker


Another thing that bugs the bejessus out of me is when someone (man or woman) wears a ton of perfume or cologne - it about makes me gag!

Not sleep, lol!

I hang out there late at night when I can't sleep. Or when I'm supposed to be cleaning the kitchen (like now) and I'm ignoring it, instead.

I can multitask (or is that waste time?) with the best of 'em.

Agree about Malcolm Gladwell, and there were a few other choices there who meet my standard of "sexy". But hey, what do I know, old married woman that I am.

Maybe I'm in a grumpy mood, but I don't think lists like that are entertaining at all. I think they are just mean. Surely most of those men are sexy and important to SOMEONE?

AmyElliesMom's picture

(post #45317, reply #13 of 35)

I agree; I can only imagine how awful I'd feel if I was on a list like this.

Mr. Blackwell's worst dressed, meh. That's not quite as mean; you can always change your style, right?

But you can't really change your looks/sexiness - and that's all subjective, anyway.

Indeed.

I much rather see a list of the celebrities who acted most like jerks - and Tom Cruise (sexy or not) would be number one.... :-)

I agree. I love a good snark, typically based on somebody's behavior or attitude or the vibe they put out, but this one left me cold.


I read the article (http://thephoenix.com/article_ektid7852.html) and didn't find it funny or engaging in any way.

Yes, that's it exactly.

Snark based on attributes one could change is okay; snark based on things that one can't change is just mean.

Like, you can snark on someone's bad plastic surgery, but not if they were born with odd facial features.

Or you can snark on their clothes, but not their weight. Well, at least I dont' snark on weight. But I will snark on anyone wearing spandex.

Even if some people on that list DO make their livings from playing with their own images....

Still. This reminds me too much of freshman year when the frat boys would call out numbers at the freshmen going past. LIfe is too short and human hearts too vulnerable to call that kind of stuff entertainment.

Ya know, as I get older, I notice that it's less eye candy that I look for these days than brain candy. I think Leonard Cohen just might be the sexiest man on earth, though he doesn't win any beauty prizes. ('Course, there is Paul Newman, who delivers on both counts....)

Leonard Maltin should be somewhere on that list. 


LOL. Where did that come from?  All I know of Leonard Maltin is that we had one of his movie review books some years ago that had his picture on the front.  Every time we looked at the book, it never failed.  My kids would have to make some remark about the poor guy's looks.

I haven't scrolled down to read all the posts (maybe this has been discussed), but how can Brad Pitt be on this list?


Also, I never thought of Jerry Seinfeld as unsexy.  A great sense of humor is very sexy to me - and he's not bad looking either.

I gather, that Brad has some personal cleanliness issues that landed him on the list.
