  • on guys, I'm a big fan of anything between 10% and 20-ish%. The 6-7%-picture is already way too much for me (no softness to cuddle with at all), and 25% is still alright, but less of a turn-on. If we're talking ideals, I'd not go for the 25%-guy, but in real life I don't think I'd mind.

    On women, I'd prefer more women to look like the girl in the 30th percentile, cause damn that girl looks smokin' curvy! But women do look good anywhere from 17-30%.

    As a woman, I'm aiming for an in-between of the 22% and 30% women. Perfect world would be curves of the 30%-woman but arms and thighs of the 20-22%-woman, and a belly like the 25%-woman. But I think I'll work towards the 25%. Keep it realistic, y'know :D

  • 15% for men looks great and is ideal in my book!

    20%-25 is fine too.

    For women, Ideal would be starting from 15% to 30%.

    35% is still attractive but anymore than that...things start to go a little downhill.

  • 15% on guys is pretty much ideal to me. Any more muscles than that and I start to feel intimidated and turned off. No opinion on women, lol.

  • On men I like the 20% the most, then 15% and 25% are tied for second.

    I'm a woman (obviously) and I think I'm between a 25% and a 30%

  • The photos are a little misleading for the women especially. I like the look of 10-12% in the men. I know I'm around 12-15% but I'm not a bodybuilder so I look nothing like the examples given. I think 20-22% looks the best among the female examples.

  • I would really want to bang a guy. He looked like either of the guys from (6-12%). But 15% was okay too.

    15%-30% for women. But most women fall in 40%-45%

  • I think 15% is the most attractive on men. I want him to look healthy with a decent amount of muscle.

    • Most people don't want their partner to be all muscle lol, I think it looks a bit weird. Women are meant to have curves and those are more feminine than muscle.

  • For men about 15%

    For women I'd say about 20 to 25%

    Of course, they will both still be flabby if they don't train, so I prefer for guys to build some muscle.

  • It doesn't matter to me, but I guess 15 - 25%. Just over 10%, please.

    For female, I like plump girls, so 35%. 45% is the max for me.

    I don't see why people are against plump girls. Aren't you suppose to be naturally plump?

  • As long as my potential partner's body fat doesn't prevent them from doing basic activities, I don't really care at all. When their weight starts to affect our lives is when it becomes a problem. If I had to choose though, I'd say I'd find 15-20% most appealing on a guy.

    • this cud be a stupid question or a good one: if the potential partner looked like the guy in 10-12 would you be intimidated?

    • No, I wouldn't. In fact, I'm sure many women like that. To me, I think it would mostly say something about the guy's lifestyle/personality (he goes to the gym a lot/ cares about his appearance)

  • Body Fat percentage can be very misleading sometimes. Case in point link and link

    Anyway for an Ideal woman according to your chart I would choose 20-22% or 25%

  • Between 15 and 18 for a woman for a guy, I stable at 14 but don't look any different at 17, maybe a slight loss of definition, but only the young are so vain to want 11/.12 lol.

  • Based solely on the picture I think I look most similar to about 15% body fat, which should hopefully reduce when I work out

    For the women I'm really not that into relaly muscular looking women. I like somewhere from the 20% up to 35% with the 30% looking most ideal but honestly it varies. Women have a variety of builds and some suit one weight more than another

  • For guys 15% only 4 abs

    show 8-14% 6 abs show

    Six pack is more attractive that a 4 pack.

  • 11 to 20 is probably around the ratio that I like in a woman and I personally would like to be around 10 but that will take a few months of working out and gah I hate it.

  • For women, 20-30% is attractive. 20% is pushing it for too low to be attracted and 30% is pushing it for too high. (15-17% or 35% would have to have a good personality to catch my eye, so it's not like they are completely out.)

    For guys, 15-25% is the good look to me. 15% is pushing it for too low and 25% is starting to push it for too high. (At 10-12% I'm honestly thinking "Get a life besides the gym dude", and at 30% I'd be like "Get your f*ckin life together man".)

    I feel like being in too "good" shape is just as bad as being in very bad shape. I believe in eating a healthy balanced diet and lots of walking (or biking if you have to go a moderately far distance). If somebody has too low or too high a body fat percentage, to me it says out lifestyles wouldn't be compatible most likely.

  • I think the 30% woman is the most attractive.
