No man will ever admit to man crushes. Poor ninja bunny does not understand. :D

ETA: On a public forum, that is...

Why is it okay for women to have girl crushes (and I have plenty) but still seen as icky for a bloke to have a man crush?

No-one's expecting you to bum each other...though if it was Joaquin Phoenix and James Purefoy, I'd be right there with the camcorder...

That's because Bravo is your long lost twin sister, Stew, trapped in a boy's body.

As far as I go, I've had various man-crushes in the past, but there's not really anyone on the guy side who majorly floats my boat right now.

One of my guy friends flat out admitted he would let Collin Farrell bone him. He said, "Look, I'm all about women. But the man has been a firefighter, a SWAT officer, and an emperor, among other badass things. If he told me he wanted to do me, I'd bend over and take it, and LIKE it."

Not sure if he said this with his wife around or not.

Ah, yes, the 'going to bed with a SWAT officer/firefighter/emperor, and waking up with an actor whining about how he should have got that Academy Award' scenario. Your friend might like to save himself for some other lucky fellow...

Yeah, I can easily see sexiness in guys, but I don't have crushes on them.

I've thought, of the current stock...

Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, god I hate to admit it but yes Orlando Bloom ummm.. others, but those would be obvious.

This has come up on another thread as I recall, that usually my choices would be pretty much in synch with fems in the house. My wife's celebrity fantasy is Johnny Depp, and Colin Farrell is one of my daughter's.

Usually the fem celebrities that do it for me are my wife's choice too, in fact we've had many a theoretical argument as to which of us would get to them first. A name you don't hear a lot but we'd both bonk in a flash is Rachel Weisz.

I'm man enough to admit I've never had a crush on another man. I've admired lots of men (none of them actors, by the way), but a crush is another thing, and nope. None. Not sorry about it, either. Comes pretty natural to me.

Where is that article published, anyway? Journal of Armchair Psychology?

Oh, yeah. I did just buy my wife a minivan, though.

On the subject of sexy men...

I saw a link a few months back to an advertisment, I think for beer, and it is a very cool looking guy with long hair (dreadlocks?) playing a harp. I do recall that the link was posted on some site by a Greek woman (who gave a quite detailed description of the state of her knickers after watching the ad), but I have no idea what country etc the ad was from, and I can't figure a google search that finds it.

But I'm going to say that for me, it is perhaps one of the sexiest ad I've ever seen, so cool and unusual. Anyone know the one I'm talking about?

Well, I freely admit that, though I'm straight and secure in my womanhood, there isn't a woman in the world I'd anywhere-near 'do'. No, it's the menfolk for me, and I ain't even all that keen on them at the moment.

Understandable. I just think the whole "just so you know, I'm not gay, BUT..." is funny. ;)

I'm bi, so I don't bother with the disclaimers. LOL That could get really lengthy. "Even though my preference is for men, and I did marry a man, I'm also totally game for women, so my admission of uncontrollable Angelinalust does not actually make me gay, because technically I'm not, but in a way I kind of am..."

It's easier to just say "I'd do her." LOL

I had this conversation with a bisexual (female) friend a while back. She was asking me if I'd ever had 'leanings' that way. Maybe she was making a pass, but you know me - thick as pigshit when it comes to realising someone likes me.

Anyway, my answer was, "I find some women attractive and sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be with a woman. But when I look into my future and imagine settling down with someone, I always see that being with a man. But I still find women attractive."

I asked her if that made sense and she said it totally did. "You're straight, but you still recognise beauty when you see it, in either gender."

"Nah, you're too straight."
