How many of you took the survey at the end? It has a question about tattoos and questions that could discern attitude toward sexuality. So when they make statements like "are inclined to not be extremely comfortable with sexuality" and "are inclined to appreciate tattoos" that's based on them matching the results of the test to the results of the survey. Note that probably the vast majority of people who've taken the test/survey and trained the system are women.

Their tattoo comment was bizarre. It really has nothing to do with anything.

I'm getting the sense that if you prefer masculine men you score high. Then they claim you're not comfortable with your sexuality. So if you like dweeby and effeminate guys you're comfortable with your sexuality? I scored 75 and I'm quite happy being gay. I noticed almost everyone who posted their scores were over 70.

I also think it's geared towards gay males as the comment about sexuality is a red flag. It seems like you're saying it's aimed at heterosexual females.

FWIIW here is mine:

These are your results on the Evaluations of Male Attractiveness Scale.
The EMAS measures one variable, traditionalism. Your score was 69/100 where 100 is the highest possible score and 0 is the lowest. Individuals high in traditionalism prefer traditionally masculine men and are inclined to not be extremely comfortable with sexuality. Individuals low in traditionalism are attracted to a wider selection of men and are inclined to appreciate tattoos.

You know that “sexuality” ≠ “sexual orientation”. Being comfortable in one’s sexuality has a broader meaning.

It’s not aimed toward anyone, but it’s obviously been trained on females because the vast majority of people who are attracted to males are female. There’s one for female attractiveness too where the opposite would obviously be the case.

The statement about tattoos is clearly a finding of theirs based on the post-test survey where they specifically ask a question about tattoos.

True, but heterosexuals don't tend to think about their "sexuality". They're not reminded every day that they're different. But I'll take your word it's general. However, their assessment is very different if applied to gay males rather than straight females.

I'm baffled by the tattoo comment though. Traditional sexuality would associate tattoos with traditional masculinity.

I just find it odd that they equate tattoos to a non-traditional sexual attraction.

Your score was 69/100. :awesome:

I think that is accurate for me, at least when it comes to physical appearance. Any of those handsome studs could be total douchebags.

You seem to conflating traditional and masculine.

If that’s what their data shows — that people who say they like tattoos score lower on the scale — then that’s what it shows. They’re not “equating”, they’re reporting a correlation.

God's honest truth from this atheist. Hehe. I'm ok with that number. Honestly there are some guys that show just enough fem and I find that incredibly attractive in both mind and body.

Masc/fem just as likely to be into having tattoos. Also just because you like tattoos on a guy or don't does not imply you like masc vs fem. There is just no basis for correlation on those.

They have an agenda. Everyone does. They're saying those with high scores are traditional and are not comfortable with their sexuality. They're saying high scores a bad thing. Traditional would be masculine. Non-traditional would be Ru Paul. Lol.

Doing this test may work better for you if you only give yourself a few seconds to select the picture. They say it only takes a second or two to decide if someone is attractive or not.
People love to follow fools; they don't feel so alone then.

I took the survey at the end but I didn't see a question about tattoos, weird.

Anyway

The EMAS measures one variable, traditionalism. Your score was 72/100 where 100 is the highest possible score and 0 is the lowest. Individuals high in traditionalism prefer traditionally masculine men and are inclined to not be extremely comfortable with sexuality. Individuals low in traditionalism are attracted to a wider selection of men and are inclined to appreciate tattoos.

Seems about right for me. I prefer guys, at least physically, toward the masculine end of the spectrum. As I've said before I have a very, very strong preference for facial hair on men and exaggerated male sex characteristics generally. Whenever a guy came up who had facial hair while the other didn't, I probably chose him.

However I would choose a slightly-less masculine looking guy who is attractive over a more masculine dude who puts zero effort into his appearance. That's pretty much my taste in a nutshell.

I did end up picking neither on a lot of the pairs, or sometimes I chose the relatively more feminine-looking one, when one was noticeably more masculine than the other but I just didn't find him attractive in the face or how he looked. Most of the men were Germanic-type white men, and as they aren't my usual preference I guess I was more objective, but I'm not sure how accurate it would have been.

I'm neutral on tattoos. A few can be sexy, I think too many will ruin anyone's looks.

I just went through it twice (picking neither for all of them) and see that the end questionnaire has randomised questions, so it doesn’t always have the tattoo one(s).

How is that ridiculous? They're saying attraction to masculine men is a sign of insecure sexuality. And almost everyone who has posted their scores has been more "traditional" than not.

Sorry, their conclusion is ridiculous and promotes nontraditional attraction as if it is healthier. That's an agenda.

Maybe that's their conclusion because people who scored high also tended to self-evaluate as feeling less secure?

81/100. Lol for the record I selected neither for most of my answers. I didn't find their selection of guys very appealing. The ones where I did prefer a dude over the other, it was because it was either a regular handsome guy or a cheeto eating couch potato lookin dude. :/

^Lol same. I tried to choose what I found better of the two on as many as I could. However there were seriously like 10 maximum in the whole thing I would notice in a busy room full of people.

Anyway, the only reason I think someone would be less secure is if they really struggle to live-up to what they find attractive.

I do think it's natural, especially for same-sex attracted people, to compare yourself to people you find attractive and even attempt to look like them. For example, if you really like hairless smooth bodies on other men, odds are you're going to replicate that aesthetic on yourself and feel most confident when you are hairless, because it's "attractive" to you. I can't tell you how many gay couples I've seen where the men either looked near exactly the same or at least had a very similar vibe in terms of style/grooming.

The problem comes if there's something very difficult, if not impossible, for you to replicate. Say you're someone who loves facial hair on other men but you just can't grow any to save your life, you might feel like you ain't shit and get envious of men who can. I'll be real about mine. I'd say overall I'm not too hung-up on how I look, but anything I am insecure about is something that I would consider to be "ugly" on other men. I really don't like my nose for example, especially from the side profile, and yeah it's like the opposite of what I'd consider an "attractive" nose on other men. If/when I decide to experiment by shaving my face (I swear I do this once every year and I regret it every single time) my confidence plummets and I walk around feeling shit about how I look until it grows back.

The EMAS measures one variable, traditionalism. Your score was 84/100 where 100 is the highest possible score and 0 is the lowest. Individuals high in traditionalism prefer traditionally masculine men and are inclined to not be extremely comfortable with sexuality. Individuals low in traditionalism are attracted to a wider selection of men and are inclined to appreciate tattoos.

I got 84/100 but I did select a lot of 'prefer neither' there. I didn't get the tattoo questionnaire at the end either?

I'm sure a couple of those guys appeared more than once too, with added fringes and fake stubble :D
