Guys: Your (straight) girlfriend has a poster of a half-naked girl on her bedroom wall, how do you feel about it?

Asked by this_velvet_glove (1142points) February 24th, 2013

Would you think “how sexy” or “how weird”?

I doubt I’d think much of it at all if I were a guy.

Who is the half naked girl? A celebrity/athlete? And is the poster overtly sexual?

Either way, it’s no big deal.

Just a poster of some sexy girl, not someone famous or anything…

ALSO: What if the poster was porn movie related?

I applaud her for her good taste.

Don’t invent things to worry about. As Freud said, “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”

@elbanditoroso I’m the girl, not the guy :p So I’m not worried about this, just asked this question to see what men think…

Meh. Is she using it as inspiration?
If she were older than 18 I would consider it a bit childish. But I think chewing gum constantly is childish too.

Next time you are at a news stand or grocery store that displays and sells magazines, look what or who is on the cover. Almost all of the “Womens” magazine have women on the cover.

Lady-person here. I’ve kept this(cover).jpg image as my iPhone wallpaper for years, and guys seem love it when they see. It appears, generally, to indicate to them that I have some appreciation for the beauty of the female form, and because that is in fact the case, this tends to be a point of connection between us. I’m sure some guys – and some ladies, for that matter – think it’s an indication of my sexual orientation, but because I don’t give a shit whether other people think I’m gay or not, that’s never been a problem for me. If this is what you mean by your boyfriend thinking your poster “weird,” I would only worry about it if he brings it up or gives it an obvious hard stare or something like that. And then I’d just tell him I find the picture aesthetically pleasing and reassure him that I am attracted to him if he seems to need it. But if the reassurance he needs is on the order of confirmation of my sexual orientation as 100% straight girl, I’d think seriously about breaking up with him because I wouldn’t want to date a person who is so close-minded and willfully ignorant as to believe that 100% straight people exist, let alone that his girlfriend ought to be one of these imaginary people.

@wildpotato 1) He doesn’t have a problem with it, 2) I was thinking of getting this: Isn’t it great?
(If I were a guy I’d find it sexy, just sayin’...)

@this_velvet_glove Very sexy – and awesomely 80s. Gotta love the underboob shot.

Side boob, under boob..; I am pretty much just a boob fan from any angle.
If I had a girlfriend (my wife would kill me) and she were straight (not a stretch of the imagination, since she is my girlfriend), I wouldn’t have an issue with it. It may just make her feel sexy.

I’m much more fond of the male form, to the point that some guys might find it odd. For example, I had this photo framed in my bedroom through most of high school. Some ignorant people deducted that I was a lesbian from this. How that makes any sense, I don’t know, but them’s the facts. People are stupid.

If I dated a guy with pictures of half naked guys hung up on his wall, my first reaction would be “sweet!” But I have to admit I’d find it a bit odd that a straight man would have as keen an appreciation of the male form as I do. I know when I see the male form in all its glory, I don’t look at it for the aesthetic pleasure, I imagine doing dirty things to it.

But I think most would find it stranger to find male pictures in a guy’s room than female pictures in a girl’s room. That’s the beauty of our culture: the double standard. And we’re all guilty if it, whether we admit it or not.

I would think that was awesome.

I wouldn’t mind at all, personally, even if the poster was there because she found it sexy.

I would mind if it was a male poster and she masturbated to it, I suppose I would feel substituted in a way and would want to be the only male to stimulate her that way. A female image wouldn’t induce such feelings of competition as long as she wanted me all the same.

Now, my new fascination is underboob shots.


Ron_C's avatar

Why would I mind it. Most guys, including me, think that two girls together is pretty hot.

Blackberry's avatar

I would be thinking “Why does she have a poster on her wall? I don’t date high schoolers….”

Delighted our tastes in wall art are so well synchronized.

SamandMax's avatar

She’s not straight, she’s bi, so it’s cool.

LuckyGuy's avatar

Pics or it never happened.

Mama_Cakes's avatar

I like the pic that I posted. I just want to nuzzle all up in there.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I don’t worry about the poster but the pics are making me so so horny.

SamandMax's avatar

That’s probably just as annoying as those people on Youtube who say “First!” to comment, or “Tits or gtfo” when a woman with apparently ample boobs posts a video.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

If my girl had bi-tendancies I’d want her to explore that. Suppressing stuff comes back to bite you in the ass. If we don’t live our lives fully what ehr heck are we doing?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

That was the heck, not ehr heck.

OpryLeigh's avatar

I’m that girl (well, maybe “straight” isn’t an accurate description), my boyfriend appreciates it!
