My husband Alex is not the tall skinny guy in this photo. He's the shorter, fuller, man with glasses. My personal preference in men's bodies is that they should be built like a fire hydrant and be well padded.
Height is not a requirement. Tall and skinny men involve getting entangled in all those spiky knees and elbows. In other words, Jude Law need not apply as my bed-warmer and full-body pillow. Now, Russell Crowe (if he's not too tall) might be all right.
Why some women have a fixation with tall thin men, I have no idea. I love men who are well-cushioned. In fact, I even love men who are a little on the "thick" side. I guess I'm about comfort more than speed. I'm not imagining it, but heavier men are better dancers. They also are better lovers. These men also look much younger much longer.
Just putting my arms around a man with some "substance" is so much more fun than holding a skinny guy.
I don't want to feel ribs. Ever.
