"We love your strong, solid thighs and calves. Your penises in their wide variety of shapes and sizes (and sometimes, angles), which, by the way, are just as enjoyable to look at when they're soft as when they're not... You have broad shoulders. Wide chests. That V shape as the back narrows to the waist. Yes, we love the naked male body. And we'd like to see more of it in movies. We've been deprived for too long because someone, somewhere (probably a man who didn't want to see naked men in movies) started the rumor that men's bodies are ugly and awkward... As much scrutiny as the female body has endured over the years, it doesn't make me feel any better to know men have been made to feel their bodies are somehow unattractive or inadequate. Your bodies are damn beautiful."

-- Sylvia D. Lucas writing for the Good Men Project in a post entitled "We Love Your Bod." (Hat tip to Sullivan.)
