42-47% of women want me

Playgirl's hunks? The hairy, chubby & poor!

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 [email protected] 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."

------------------------------------------------------------------

The real question is....what kind of a woman reads playgirl? That holds the answer to a lot of questions.

Having read the preferences of a few of those people on DVDTalk over the years, the results of this quiz are not unexpected.

Rich playboys need not apply - only 4% of women said the size of a man's wallet mattered. The survey also found that 96% of women are filthy liars.
Fixed!

I'm skinny with no chest hair. I guess 42%-47% of gay men don't want me.

Ya, sure... just like the lie where women are attracted to men who make them laugh.

What women say and what women do are two totally different things.

Well duh! If a guy has to keep all his money is in wallet, then obviously he doesn't have enough anyway.

But seriously though, I'm sure the women that read and vote in polls like this are the same women that read those romance novels with bare-chested cowboys and firemen on the cover. They have fantasies of being swept off their feet be some big, burly he-man and taken away to live in some quiet country cottage somewhere, but when reality hits...they'd take a little skinny girly man with a lot of money.
