In your travels across the country and around the world, what place - consistently - had the most attractive men?
For me it would be Brazil.
The hottest guys all seem to be in....the US. I've been to Europe, Asia, South America....and without fail, America has the hottest guys.
Unfortunately, the hottest of hot guys are in the south (Texas, Mississippi, Georgia).
Also, Argentina, South Africa
Brazil is such a boring answer. Yes, we know they're good looking, but try being more creative.
R4, you have the gall to criticize Brazil, when some queen actually put down Texas, Mississippi and Georgia?
Rome, ROME, ROME!!!!!!! Oh my god. And italian men hate underwear, so bulging trouser snakes everywhere!!! God, I miss Italy.
Such a cliche but New York is teeming with hot guys. It attracts really good-looking men from around the world.
My personal favorites are the French but my type is lean, dark-haired, hung, ironic and self-confident. And they're really good fucks.
Even better since they discovered gyms and grooming products.
R6 I'm simply saying is such a typical answer. We already know there are a lot of great looking people in Brazil, so why not try listing places others may not know about?
Brazil was okay. Hotter guys in Turkey and Portugal.
Brazil probably has the highest rate of plastic surgery of countries mentioned so far.
The Czech Republic, and Slovakia
[quote]Brazil probably has the highest rate of plastic surgery of countries mentioned so far.
Exactly. And the plastic surgery over there is cheap, hence all the trannys there.
It's easy to look good when you have cheap plastic surgery available.
St. Paul, MN - the men were all climbably tall, blond, and had a touch of red to their cheekbones (it was February).
As a pocket gay with brown hair, I felt like running between their legs for a whiff of ball sweat.
Israel. Tel Aviv. Hottest military IN. THE. WORLD. And the patrol the city streets slinging huge, loaded weapons. So Hot.
Deepest, darkest Africa! That's the ticket!
R17. I agree!!!!
Slam dunk question: Turkey!
That's where they have such problems with autism, isn't it?
How about "it depends". I find that many men find men different from themselves more attractive. I know I do. My background is Italian, so while I see many attractive Italians, I tend to find the Nordic-types and white trash hot. My partner is blond, blue-eyed etc and he finds us swarthier types more attractive (he especially likes Latinos).
So whatever blows your skirt up dictates where the hottest men are.
Madrid, hot guys everywhere. Spaniards are so frikkin sexy!
Northern Italy. Hands down.
Romans are too swarthy.
Serbia, though it was Yugoslavia at the time so the men were not necessarily Serbs.
New Zealand, hands down.
Even the old people are nice looking.
All of their pets there are good looking, too!
Italy. I remember witnessing some sort of catholic parade where there were a dozen priests of some sort in their twenties, some of them were fucking hot. What a waste.
Poland. I don't know, when I was there I saw so many masculine, rough looking guys. So many of them have kind of a ice cold look in their blue eyes which I find sexy.
Another bump for Barcelona.
And NYC in the summertime.
I digress--- Once, i went to the monastary in Assisi. I walked in and there was a monk sitting and reading the bible, and i was so taken aback by how handsome he was, that for a split second, I thought he was an actor or tour guide(!) He looked like a young Gregory Peck or JFK jr. It took me a minute to process that he belonged there! I seriously couldn't accept that someone THAT handsome was a monk!
I walked out thinking, "what a waste... good for him, but what a waste". Men who look like that, conquer the world. To this day I don't know if i've reacted that way to a man's looks.
I am also in for Italy, hottest men, they take pride in how they look and dress seriously. Even most straight men have a personal taylor.
People with olive skin generally look the best when they get a tan. More golden bronze color then red or brown. Very romantic guys, passionate guys, life first, then work. Nice straight thick cocks.
Spain, also very hot more white looking then Italians. Not at all like Mexican.
Brazil has some really hot guys, big racial mix, but most are dirt poor. Very friendly though until the next guy comes along.
r32, why did Lance Bass move to Iraq?
Funny, I actually agree with r16 on Minnesota. I definitely think they are the hottest men in America. I love the combination of hunky blonde beef with farm-boy innocence. So damn sexy.
Outside the US, I like the men of Spain, Australia, Brazil, and pretty much all the Nordic countries (including Iceland).
Sweden and Holland. Tall, blond, beefy and laid back.
A personal taylor?
Jesus Christ on a NYC rented bicycle.
"beefy" r38? Yuck. One of the reasons I like the guys in much of Europe is that they have natural male bodies, not distorted by overeating or bodybuilding. None of that "beefy," stocky, fat, or whatever you want to call it.
No one group has particularly leapt out to me for facial beauty; however, in France (Paris metro region, specifically), their asses were generally amazing. One of my friends call Paris, "The city of hot asses".
Deutschland. The natives, not the immigrants
NYC...no doubt ...the most beautiful men from all over the world come here
R42, we are talking about Italy, not Italian Americans....they tend to be more ghetto.
In fact its kind of funny watching Italians from Italy meet Italians from America. They can hardly understand each other because the once here have ghettofied the language so much its like a form of Ebonics.
Italians in Italy don't see them self as lower class like they do here because they have the cultural history to back it up.
R46, but the thing about NY is that they are not from NY.
Question for those who've been to Rome. When I there, I kept seeing stylish, young men walking arm in arm-- arms locked. But they would check out women! Were these gay men or is this a cultural thing-- to walk arms locked?
Where? I was just in Rome. I saw no such thing.
Ugh, Italy, now way. Everyone is skinny as can be, have smelly breath, and colorclash terribly. South of Spain: Sevilla, Granada, Valencia, etc. = incredibly gorgeous men.
R47 - from what I gather, Italian-Americans don't speak Italian, so much as a sort of slang-laden, English-based patois. Moreover, many of their families spoke Sicilian dialect, not "standard" Italian.
In a similar vein, modern Poles consider Polish-Americans to be peasants.
A toss up: Portugal and Montenegro
I've seen it and it's a cultural thing when you're doing the "passeggiata".
I'm Italian-American but hardly see myself as lower class. However, my mother came after WWII while my father was an earlier immigrant.
While I grew up in the NE, I didn't live in an Italian neighborhood, so that may have something to do with it. Now, my college roommate was from Mt. Vernon, NY. He and his cousins were real "guidos".
Cultural Thing R49. Straight men in Italy can touch each other without it being homophobic or on the "down low"
In Europe, its customary to kiss each other on the cheek instead of shaking hands too.
Saudi Arabia, holding hands in normal
In Japan, you bow.
America, shake hands, but fists with a fly-away. LOL
r5 i was going to say malta too - NYC has hotties too but more of a swagger/style thing vs just looks.
Corn-fed and corn-curious.
No love for Asian countries?
Ah, thanks [r55]. I thought it must be cultural. I remember this specifically around the spanish steps neighborhood. I thought, "is it pride week in Rome? Cuz, there's gay dudes everywhere!" But then they'd hiss at women! Especially blonde women! I wasn't sure what I was seeing-- young alpha males walking arm in arm in tight pants and tight shirts. I was totally confused.
[quote]Italy, now way. Everyone is skinny as can be,
"skinny" LOL. I take it you're a resident of Fat America, where you think males either have to have weight-trained steroid boobs or be chunky with fat. A normal natural male seems weird to you, huh?
I'm a connoisseur of hot men worldwide and my female friends say I have excellent taste. Behold the sexiest men by country:
1. The United States
4. The Netherlands
Typically for a country, either the men or the women are hotter. For example, a list of the most attractive women would be topped by Italy, Russia and Ethiopia; but Russian and,especially, Ethiopian men aren't much to look at.
Some of the ugliest are in Greece...
No mention of the UK? No one likes track-suited chavs?
The men and women in Ethiopia--tall, very slender, with a mix of African and Arabic and Indian features--are very striking.
Ethiopian women (and Eritrean, Somali women as well) are willowy and beautiful. The men? Downright unattractive. Usually gaunt, scrawny extremes with bug eyes. The men also lack sex appeal.
In Africa they say, travel East for the hot women, and West for the hot men.
By "connoisseur" R64, what you really mean you collect gay porn.
argentina, israel, and miami, but dumb
No Asians, Ha Ha, the old notion that Asian men are not hot is shared world wide.
Please don't wast my time now trying to prove me wrong with the one hot Asian guy out of 1 billion. There are exceptions to every rule.
The Board Has Spoken!
As a British person, we watched a lot of US TV in the 70s/80s, where all the men were GORGEOUS. I really expected the US to be crawling with Tom Sellecks, Paul Michael Glasers, Ted Dansons.
It was a huge disappointment on actually visiting your country to realise that the man who best represents American men is actually Michael Moore. About 1/3 of American men look like Michael Moore, or one of his brothers.
French men are gorgeous. I think it helps that they're well dressed, well groomed, rarely overweight and lacking in tattoos.
Italy. Specifically Rome & Florence. Hot damn.
R76, I sympathize. I expected to see the cast of [italic]All Creatures Great and Small[/italic] when I visited the UK.
Instead, I saw the cast of Richard Simmons fitness videos everywhere. Who knew so many over-weight Brits were into fitness? Nylon track suits everywhere.
DL has awful taste in men, amongst other things, so this thread is useless.
'All Creatures Great and Small', R79? Who was good looking on that? I'd have thought that represented British men fairly accurately, ie; meh
r76 has a point. The image Hollywood projects isn't what people find when they visit. But LA is crawling with hot, dumb, untalented waiters who want to get into the biz.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
