Why only women on the covers of erotic books?

Man Candy Monday

with 10 comments

Hey, you know what’s terrible? I don’t think we have ever done a headless Man Candy. Shocking! I mean, how else are all our straight male readers going to identify.

Here you go!

(What do you mean straight men don’t get off on identifying with random images of headless male torsos? I don’t understand.)

  1. Dunno about straight guys, but headless (and faceless) images do tend to get a bad response on The Female Gaze research community that I run. Which is not to say a headless or faceless image is necessarily a bad image, just that a lot more women seem to say ‘It would do more for me if I could see his head/face’ than those who prefer them without the head/face.

    My Man Candy this week is my new favorite. I just can’t get him out of my head.

  4. I like both! But when the guy is headless, there’s the added bonus that he could be anyone. So, excellent fantasy fodder.

  5. I didn’t notice the image was cropped until I read the commentary.

  6. I prefer them headless usually – just because I’m so particular about the sort of face I like. It’s much harder to find a face that turns me on than a body, and a boring face puts me off the whole package.

    Jessica – I’m now worried for that cat…

  7. actually, if you watch porn aimed at het men, you’ll see that often the shots are of cocks and nothing else.

  8. […] last week’s headless Man Candy, this week we’re all about the head. Well, Channing Tatum’s head, to be exact, and the […]
