Muscles on women: Sexy or not?

Personally, I think it's kind of gross to go this far.

  • Some muscle tone is nice, but not when her muscles to get bigger than men's muscles.... Remember that movie GI Jane? Demi Moore gained some muscle tone for the movie, and I thought that looked good on her, but any more than that and it's kinda gross.

    Strength is another story. I admire strong women, (but not necessarily buff) I have a compound bow, and only a few of my girl friends can even pull the string back. Many of them tried but couldn't do it. What if you have to lift a heavy rock off of your child or something?

  • I'm with you. There's Jillian Michaels fit, then there's too much (hypertrophy is the medical name for it). I'm aiming for toned and fit, not Muscle Mania!

  • That much yep totally GROSS!!! But a bit of muscle definition is pretty hott. Or maybe I should say "toned".

  • I don't even think Jillian Michaels looks all that great. I mean I think she's beautiful, but sometimes when I see her working out, I can't help but think, "Ew." I'm just not a big fan of being able to see muscles on men or women, though lol. Well, guys arms being a little muscular is hot, IMO, but that's as far as my liking muscles being visible goes. I'm a weirdo, though.

  • Toned with a little definition is hot. I think even Madonna is a little freaky looking lately. Whoever that is in the pic looks disgusting. I like my man to be cut and muscular but no veins popping out! That's gross, too.

  • Bulk on a man is OK. Bulk on a woman, now that is just over doing it. Toned is very sexy. Don't want to scare the men.

  • I think even too much on a man looks nasty. Definately for a woman.

  • I'm with everyone else... toned is nice but ripped women are scary looking.

  • Toned, yes. Bulky, no. The picture you posted is too much, IMO, but hey--whatever floats her boat.
