    I'm not precisely a man, but i am attracted to women. I dislike the "starved waif" thing also. I always like the "before" pictures better, too.

    I don't even necessarily like the curves. I also like flat stomachs (more the athletic, even six-pack style, abs than "starved" though) and smaller chests, but not people who look like they're about to snap in half. That's just painful to look at, for me.

    I guess apparently some people like it, but it seems almost like a fetish to me.

      and, though they may have washboard-ab stomachs, very few of the ones that attract me are skinny. Above I used Amanda Beard, the swimmer, as an example. She was in the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She's not skinny, she's just in great shape. There's a difference.

      And a muscular stomach isn't flat, it's just not fat. There's definition there. The ones that are held up as some kind of ideal--have no hips, no ass, and the stomachs are concave.

      David Spade once told a joke about this. But it could be very offensive to some people :-).
