Men’s Standards Of Beauty Around The World


Men. Do you prefer blonds, or guys with dark hair. Or is it the color of his skin? Do you like him smooth or hairy? With a lot of muscles and a sixpack?  Beauty ideals, even for men, are constantly evolving: A 2010 study found that between white, black, and mixed-race faces, millennials considered mixed-race  people to be the most attractive. A 2014 study found that women found men with femininne feature more attractive than those with traditionally masculine features. Women in urban areas tended to prefer masculine subjects while women in rural areas did not, which challenges a common anthropological theory that attraction towards masculine-looking men is evolutionary. Though it’s imperative that we recognize that the growing conversation about men’s standards of beauty and their negative personal effects is critical, the recent boom of objectification of men in mass media, as this video (below) has dissected, does not directly equate to the continued objectification of women.
