I have to admit to sniggering in the past about guys who buy the tabloids and immediately turn to page 3. For those American readers, page 3 generally features an attractive girl with big bazookas. Well, it used to. I haven't opened one of those newspapers for a long time.
It is a fact that guys are drawn to the visual aspects of sex - while women are supposedly not. So guys watch porn and women read erotic romance. BUT the internet has changed things. It's easy to find all sorts of things nowadays and images of naked guys are all over the place. You hardly have to look. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Ooh, plus I'm doing research for my books. Cough...
But I'm not sniggering any more because I'm prepared to hold up my hand and admit I like looking at pics of naked guys. While I used to blather about the exploitation of women, how can I now say that when I'm quite happy to click on pages where I know I'll see guys with their kit off?
The truth is that I don't think it is exploitation. Those who are prepared to reveal all do it because they either want the money or the attention. They're not being forced into it. So thanks to those who are brave enough to shed their clothes because sometimes, I just like to admire a beautiful body.
Sorry hubs, you're beautiful too! Honest!
