    You too could be a Playgirl hunk

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/goss...p-288635c.html

    BY RIVKA BUKOWSKY
    DAILY NEWS WRITER

    Forget waxed chests and rock-hard abs. A new survey finds ladies like their men scruffy, a wee bit chubby - and definitely not a metrosexual.

    Playgirl asked 2,000 of its readers what they find sexy in a man and the answers were surprising: 42% said they thought love handles were kind of sexy and 47% approved of chest hair.

    The mag, which often features toned, hairless males in its beefcake photo spreads, is now searching for a man who meets readers' standards.

    Average Joes everywhere can send photos to models@playgirlmag.com to compete for a shot at a pictorial in a future issue.

    Rich playboys need not apply - only 4% of women said the size of a man's wallet mattered. Metrosexuals are also out: 73% want a guy who is "rough around the edges."

    "This survey shows that the guy who's most attractive to our readers is not your average Hollywood hunk," said Playgirl editrix Jill Sieracki. "It's the average Joe who came up on top. Women are practical about their choices, and they're smart."

    New York matchmaker Janis Spindel, a self-described specialist at setting up "highly successful, well-educated, attractive professionals," confirmed the survey's findings. "It's scary, but women don't care [about looks]," she said. "Men are very superficial and very shallow."

    But Spindel disputed the claim that women don't care about finding a rich man: "Women want a man who makes more money than they do," she said. "They want to be able to live a comfortable lifestyle."

    Hmmm... maybe they say one thing in a polled response question but are actually looking for something different when "the rubber meets the road?"

    Sort of reminds me of the old quote: "Money doesn't matter as long as you've got it."

    This is almost comical in its absurdity. She must not know the women I hang out with. Guess I need to find new female friends, lol.

    She seems to have the part about men right though.

    Just shows you how ridiculous generalisations can be, no?

    Go to any young singles bar on a Friday or Saturday night, and tell me who the single girls are talking with.

    That's right...ME.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Oh I agree. It's just that an average looking guy like myself can only dream that the first part of what she said is true. We're not all blessed to look like Abercrombie and Fitch models like Reg.

    They also say they want a sense of humor, but my PM box isn't overflowing, if you know what I mean.

    You mean the guys with absurd amounts of chest hair poking out of their shirt and love handles flopping around over their belts?

    I hardly think "Playgirl readers" are an accurate demographic for such a study.

    Although I do remember a really hot chick buying one when I was in sixth grade and of course the poor thing got nothing but snickers and jokes from the candy buying kids behind her.

    So I suppose half of the men in Playgirl from now on will have love handles and naturally hairy torsos?

    only 4% of women said the size of a man's wallet mattered.
    after saying this, they expect us to take the rest of the article seriously

    Yes, both men and women are generally very superficial.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    "It's scary, but women don't care [about looks]," she said. "Men are very superficial and very shallow."
    So are the women looking past the pictures in Playgirl and looking into their souls?

    For the most part I doubt it is women looking at Playgirl.
