Re: Most Attractive Male

I like EVERYONE without their shirt on, especially when they don't have their shirts on together
I agree with this.

Pics from that part of that episode do improve this thread, I must say.

*smile* Nice photo. I wonder, though, how they managed to get Spock's yellow-green make-up on his chest without getting his chest hair all gunked up. There must be some secret known to the pros.
I imagine it depends on the type of makeup stuff they used.

Re: Most Attractive Male

Oh I don't mind sharing Kirk when it comes down to it.. I will only fight those who want exclusive rights.

I mean if you look very closely at this photo you will see that there is enough of him to go around, he's not going to get worn out or used up.

I don't actually like chest hair, though of course it wouldn't bother me IRL because what are ya gonna do? People have what they have. However for the purposes of objectifying fictional characters I can be a totally shallow pervert and discard the hirsute without any guilt.

But here's my favorite pic of Spock's chest hair for those that like Spock Pie

I don't have a feeling one way or the other about hair in general really, but I don't dislike it on Spock. [shrugs] You can have Kirk, then. His is shaved.

If we're talking about pettable hair, it's the eyebrows that I really want to pet, rather than the chest hair. They're so CUTE!

Re: Most Attractive Male

Pointy eyebrows.. pointy sideburns.. pointy ears..

All of this makes me think of other pointy things.

The eyebrows. Hmm. They're cool and all, but not a favorite part of Spock for me.

Even before we started having this conversation, I'd spent more time than I should probably tell you about, thinking about tracing them with one finger.

I also really want to caress the ears. *sigh*

Re: Most Attractive Male

I can agree about the ears. I can understand the choice to make his eyebrows pointy, I just don't think they are precisely attractive. (This is probably some kind of blasphemy, sorry, lol).

Re: Most Attractive Male

I think that Kirk pic clears up any misconception that TOS Kirk was "flabby".
Anybody got shirtless pics of the rest of the guys. I'd especially like to see McCoy :P

Re: Most Attractive Male

Well, I think it's also possible that people sometimes merge TOS Shatner with older Shatner, since older Shatner was heavier.

On the topic of shirtlessness, I think sulu was all right, too.

Can't recall seeing McCoy topless.

Semi-off topic: I just watched Kid Monk Baroni with the audio commentary, and the movie is worth it just for the scenes where Nimoy's character stands around shirtless, looking in the mirror and checking himself out.

Re: Most Attractive Male

When I watch TOS I'm always struck by how unbuff they all are, especially Nimoy, in comparison to what is considered standard today.

This. Nimoy really has no muscle tone,he has arms like Gumby. Shatner at least has some arm muscles but nothing like you would see in a main character who takes his shirt off a lot on TV today (and a higher body fat, though I'm by no means calling him fat in TOS), yeah. I watched ST: TMP the other night and wondered at the choice of them putting Spock in that sleeveless white thing. (Not that I don't find him attractive, it's just that on TV and in movies today all the women are stick thin and all the men have huge muscles much of the time.)

(Off topic: That's also why I was amused while watching "Kid Monk Baroni," though: if I was casting an actor to play an athlete, Nimoy would be my last choice.)

Sulu looks ok without a shirt, but he's so skinny.

Re: Most Attractive Male

Oh yes. The standards of beauty are ridiculous today. I was talking about this with my niece earlier, about how 50ish years ago Marilyn Monroe was the ideal, and now it's Paris Hilton. It's similar, if not quite as extreme with guys. They either have to be ripped with a six pack or slim boyish types to be thought of as attractive. I think Kirk is very attractive in TOS, but he'd never cut it as a lead looking like that today.
Sulu was very fit, and I like him, I'm just not attracted to him.

Re: Most Attractive Male

But yeah, if TOS had been cast according to today's standards of beauty, Kirk would have a ten-pack and 2% body fat, and would be shaped very differently. And anyone who looked like Spock would never have taken his shirt off or worn anything sleeveless, at least.

It's weird but it's almost shocking to me when I watch TOS and most of the men have very normal, average-looking bodies. And I mean that in a positive way, because I don't really find super-ripped underwear-model types attractive. (Should be obvious since I have been talking about my huge crush on Nimoy for several pages now, lol).
