10 Reasons Women Prefer Muscular Men

October 24, 2013


A lucrative industry has sprung up around men’s desire to bulk up. Around the world, millions of men work to perfect their physiques, spending substantial time and money at the gym. Why?

One answer is obvious. Women love muscled men. But is it the muscles? Or do the muscles hint at character traits that women find irresistible? For a long time, that has been women’s secret – but no longer. Here they are: 10 confidential reasons why women prefer muscular men.

1. Fending Off Unwanted Suitors

The presence of a muscular man protects women from strangers who approach them. This is a substantial benefit and one important reason that women prefer muscular companions.

The muscular man will always fend off those who dare to approach the woman on his arm. This form of security is particularly attractive to those women who often get this unwanted attention when out and about – and these are precisely the women who are most likely to be seen with muscular men.

2. Building That Dream Home

When a woman sees a man with broad shoulders she thinks about home-building. Home-building – not in the nesting, decorating, making everything pretty way that is inordinately feminine, but in the hammering joists, carrying bricks, installing plumbing way.

The manly chores that go into making a home. While this focus on homemaking may seem to be jumping the gun when it contributes to initial attraction, nature cannot be ignored. Every woman needs a roof over her head, so partners with muscular physiques are automatically preferred.

3. Protection

The big man on a woman’s arm will protect her from every eventuality. A woman needn’t fear dark streets when she is escorted by a buff companion. This is something that draws women to men who look like they can handle themselves very well and protect those around them.

Muggers? Thieves, Rapists? Kidnapers? In the company of a strong man, women can stop worrying about these threats and enjoy their lives. It’s a great relief to simply relax and breathe. That’s one very important reason women turn to butter in the presence of strong men. They simply feel safer.

4. Taming the Wild One


Every woman fantasizes that she is woman enough to domesticate a wild man.

Getting a 110-pound librarian to call when he’s going to be late is no great accomplishment.

But when a broad-shouldered he-man brings flowers on your birthday and remembers the anniversary of your first date…well, then your feminine powers are confirmed.

The notion that a muscular man is on the roguish side only adds to his allure. Women fantasize about being the one who will get him to settle down and become a one-woman man.

This taming process is a greater challenge if the man in question is strong, handsome, and desired by other women. The bigger and stronger he is, the greater the sense of accomplishment his partner feels.

5. Making Her Feel Delicate

Society puts constant pressure on women to be thin and waiflike. Every woman wants to see herself as small, delicate, and feminine. One way to achieve this is to spend time in the company of a big, muscular man. The larger the man, the more feminine she feels.

Women take distinct pleasure in being smaller and physically weaker than their partners. This truth is not politically correct, but it is undeniable. There’s something thrilling about being sheltered in the arms of a big strong man. If you’re big and strong, you have an automatic advantage over smaller men. You can offer something they can’t.

6. Carrying the Weight of the World

Muscular men look like they can carry the world on their shoulders. And that is extremely attractive to women. Modern life is full of problems, cares, and worries. Every woman wants a strong man to carry her burdens and make life simple.

Broad shoulders and strong arms can wipe away all obstacles, keeping a woman safe and worry-free. Women absolutely love the feeling of relaxing and resting their weary heads on the broad shoulders of a man who will carry everything. Muscles make you look like just that sort of man.

7. Strong Men Are Good Providers

In most societies, men are traditionally seen as providers. They till the ground, do the heavy labor, and get the jobs that support their families.

This model may not make sense in modern times, but it is still deeply embedded in the female psyche. Women want men who look like good providers.

Strong men have the advantage here. A well-cut, chiseled physique may not be a competitive advantage in investment banking, but the strong man still looks like a good provider.

At the instinctive level, the purely physical level at which pheromones and millions of years of evolution spark attraction, it is the strong man who gets points for being a potential good provider.

8. Sweep Her Off Her Feet


Women say they like to be swept off their feet. This is ordinarily understood to be a figure of speech – but at some level it is also literally true.
In romantic situations, every woman wants a strong, manly partner.

Romance is lost immediately when a would-be suitor gathers up a woman in his arms, then crumples under her weight. The desirable man is the one who can carry his woman over the threshold…and perhaps all the way upstairs.

9. A Matter of Pride

No woman likes to share a bathroom mirror. And it is true that intense mirror-gazing, primping, and fussing is a turn-off in a man.

But there is also something undeniably attractive about the knowledge that a muscular man invests a certain amount of time and energy looking after himself.

Women like a man who cares enough about his body to eat well, exercise, and build up his muscles. And when you’ve got your body in shape, you’re going to radiate pride and self-confidence. Studies show that these are the character traits that women find most attractive.

So go ahead. Get a good haircut and use a gel or cream for grooming. Shave carefully every day. Keep your nails clean and trimmed. Build up your muscles and keep your body looking great. Women find men who take care of themselves endlessly sexy.

10. Mine is Bigger Than Yours

Women are intensively competitive with each other. Every aspect of a woman’s appearance, clothing, possessions, career, and life is subject to competitive inspection and critique by other women, including friends. Your muscles give your woman an edge in these competitions.

If you can make your woman’s friends envious, she’ll be yours forever. And one good way to make them envious is by building up muscles and presenting a fit, strong physique. Her friends will attempt to console her for the hours she must spend alone when you are away at the gym…but their secret hearts are consumed with envy.

And your woman loves that.And face it – if you’re going to be judged as a sort of status symbol, getting judged on the basis of your hard-earned hardbody isn’t so bad. You can tone your body and improve your woman’s social standing at the same time. Who wouldn’t love that?

    Muscles are attractive because they look good. They’re a sign of good health and a positive work ethic. You can’t count on a man for protection because those muscles will mean little if you’re dealing with an armed attacker, or multiple attackers. In fact, you’re much more likely to be battered by a husband or boyfriend than anyone else, so the muscles are much more likely to be used on you than for you.

      Highly radical feminist statement…
      High levels of exercise have shown a link to happiness; happy males are not going to beat females. ‘Roid rage’ is a common myth in case that is your next response.
      Look at the common profiles for domestic abuse before blaming the physically elite.

        Roid Rage is often attributed to hemorrhoids.

      I could be wrong, but you sound like a fat woman who got turned down by muscular men. Now, you just like to bash them.

    Didn’t tell you: muscular men are more cocky,they have a tendency to focus more on how they look,more women find then attractive which brings competition. I think this article had some weak points in it just to fill empty space such as ‘building a house ‘. Women don’t see a muscular man and say ‘he can build a house or preform mechanics’ ,lol. !
    I agreed with some statements but not all .

    I think it only holds true if you are not black. People think you are al;ways going to harm them because you must have gotten strong in prison.
