    Hmm I’m going to say no strong feelings because I think people can be beautiful no matter their body type. However, I do have a problem with the unrealistic muscular ‘standards’ of models/actors I see, which I don’t think look very appealing anyway.

    If it's a twunky bod a la Francisco Lachowski, it's ok. Waaay too much is a major turn-off.

    I do like to see fit bodies, not necessarily vein-popping muscles though. I find a bit of fat attractive too, somewhere between probably a dad-bod and a decent toned body. So, I voted for strong Feelings.

    They CAN be a turn on, but I definitely think they are overrated.

    I like all kind of body types so if you have one great, if not also great.

    From a sexual standpoint, I don't really like them. However, I love fitness, so can certainly appreciate a female who has them.

    Visually they're a turn off. But actually feeling them is a huge turn on. I'm weird like that.

    I voted turn off because I'm not indifferent about them but to say I am turned on by them would be wrong. Six packs look too deliberate. A lot of those military figures and Ken dolls that kids play with have six packs. A regular guy build that's not out of shape is the most appealing.

    I prefer chests/pecks over abs. And not too much, though. I don't really care for big beefy muscular guys.

    Honestly, it depends on what the rest of them looks like. It could be "okay" to "hot damn!" but is rarely a turn off

    Turn on, although I'm kinda biased since I've always naturally had one. When you're skinny enough it happens on its own apparently.

    This is true. Folks who have any amount of body fat above ~10-12% might have beautifully developed abs, but no one will see them because they'll be covered by a layer of body fat. And unless one is blessed with a particular type of metabolism, one has to work pretty hard to get their body fat down to that level. It also gets harder once you get past 25-27.

    I'm sure if fast metabolism is all that great. I have to eat a lot to get proper nutrition.

    Plus... I’m probably rather in the 15-20% range of body fat, and still have abs but I do a lot of sport.
