Do you like man titty on covers? Some say they should be covered up... A boob is a boob. But is it really?

I lurve man titty, as long as it's pretty man titty, not moob. ;)

Moob <--- :roll:

I also agree. Moobs =/= not easy on the eyes.

I think there should be a "Yes, but only if they aren't moobs" option of da poll.

I love mantitty covers if they're done well. Some are just :Wha:, but some are beautiful.

And I will now take this opportunity to whore my own book, complete with its topless men:

I don't think it's so much that people are bothered by men baring their chests (i.e., that it's okay for men and not women), just the STYLE of cover. The headless, bare-chested man covers just aren't everyone's cup of tea. I, for one, can't stand the manga-style covers. Just a matter of personal taste.

I might be reading your post wrong...I don't think it's a matter of people being bothered or offended, they just don't care for the cover style.

So the reader can use their own imagination to visualize the character? That would be my guess. I could be wrong on that.

Yeah, cause that was so hard to do when the man on the cover actually was a man and not a headless torso designed to titillate. At least porn usually leaves the woman's face on her.

I think I'm the only woman who doesn't drool over mantitty.

FWIW, there are a few Indie publishers out there whose covers are, IMHO, very, very hit or miss. For reasons I can't even figure out the ones with faces on them are absolutely atrocious. Cartoonish (when they're not supposed to be cartoons), horrible coloring, shitty composition, etc. Yet their other covers - headless mantitty and otherwise - are beautiful. Some of them exceptionally so. I can't figure out why this is, but there you go.

So, with that in mind, I can see why some authors would prefer "no faces". I do tend to request faceless covers, but that's just personal taste...not that I dislike faces on covers, just that I prefer the covers without faces, if that makes sense.

... don't read romances, but know some talented janes here who write them. Will leave it up to them as to how they want there covers to be. The decision should be theirs and theirs alone, and that should more or less go for writers of all genres, with guidance from publishers of course who are the ones who are shelling out the loot, after all.
