The Gay Man’s Guide To Finding Body Peace – 5 Steps

Here’s the thing. On any given day, there’s a global truth - everyone finds a way be in conflict with their body image. Call it the self-image migraine that never retreats, or the raucous laughter from the cellulite that plagues your thighs, and let’s not forget the “lemon poppy seed muffin top” hanging over the jeans asking “was it worth it?” We all find some way to look at ourselves as “perfectly imperfect"...even gay men. Well actually, gay men do the “perfectly imperfect thing perfectly!” So who better to learn from about finding “Body Peace” than a gay man?

 

But before we move on, I have to dole out the “everyone’s said them” stereotypes about gay men, in order to make this post complete. Gay men...

  • Have 6-pack abs and bubble butts that you could bounce dimes off of...YUM!
  • Use 25% more of their disposable income on hair and skin products than women...and look fabulous! (statistic made up)
  • Stay in shape by hitting gym a minimum of two hours a day - aka Gym Bunnies!

Enough about the stereotypes that many within and external of the gay culture assume to be the truths to “The Gay Man’s Guide To Finding Body Peace.” I’m saying they’re half-truths.

Not unlike our heterosexual sistah’s, gay men really do give a damn about their body’s. It’s in their DNA (Do Not Ask How I Look This Good), their thriving energy rush of choice (red bull), and of course their mental motivational chant...“look at that body, look at that body.”

For gay men, Body Image = Adoration = Acceptance = Adult Pajama Party...rinse and repeat. Now don’t get me wrong, this is not the “Gay Male Standard.” There are plenty of gay men who attract a man, they make a life, and the happy ending isn’t just the orgasm, it's monogomoy and their attraction to each others bodies are a top priority. Likewise, there is many a gay couple who build lives together and are in open relationships – so body image becomes extremely important for the hunt. Regardless of the arrangement of how gay men live, here’s 5 tips for experiencing the “Body Peace of a Gay Man" that anyone can benefit from.
