When one thinks about models, it is usually the female variety that springs to mind, as it seems that it is usually men who go looking for pictures of female models whether it is in magazines or on the internet. However, women do like to have a cheeky look at male swimsuit models, usually because they appear on the beach with a surfboard, and nearly always have a rippling abdomen. However, male swimsuit models certainly aren’t there just to be ogled by women – they do still need to be able to sell swimsuits to men. These models have become increasingly important over the last decade as a much higher proportion of our shopping is done on the internet. If you’re not going to a shop to see the swim wear and try it on for yourself, you will want the next best alternative – looking at a photo of someone else with them on, even if they’re not quite the same build as you!
Whilst they are good to look at, it is important not to get put out by looking at them – it can make people feel very self-conscious about their image by feeling inferior. The media portrays these people as ‘getting all the girls’ but it is simply not the case. Sure, they may get the women who are into a solid chest, but most women are after a bit more than just this – a sensitive personality amongst other things. If you are one of those people that worry about your ‘pulling power’ because of your body then you obviously do have that sensitive side that the women really go for!
