The question is, which type of body do I want on top of me, pinning me to the ground.
The answer is, someone like Chris Hemsworth

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, when I think of “sexy” it’s not quite so one dimensional @ragingloli. Lots and lots of guys have a body like that. Not lots and lots of guys have that “thing”’ that Yul had. I don’t know if it was his eyes, his mouth, or what. And yeah. Boy did he ever have a body.

ragingloli's avatar

His body is what disqualifies him.

Dutchess_III's avatar

How do you figure?

ragingloli's avatar

Just look how scrawny he looks.
He looks like a ribcage lampshade.

Do I have to just pick one?

rebbel's avatar

@Dutchess_III That’s a massive penis.
(Was my initial thought….)

Bowie, closely followed by Marty Feldman.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes! Just one @janbb!....OK 2. You can pick 2. So I also nominate Johnny Depp.

Yes, @rebbel, but there is something about him that is deeply sexy, IMO, and it has nothing to do with his genitals. Or maybe it does in a round about way.

janbb's avatar

Thanks for two choices. Sean Connery comes to mind first and then the young Robert Redford.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes and yes @janbb! Connery honestly just gets sexier as he gets older.

As a straight guy I can imagine going for Bradley Cooper (for whenever I see him) or Tom Hiddleston (because The Night Manager – highly recommended check it out). They seem intelligent as well as hot.

In all of history, though? Hmmmmm. It would have to be a writer, because they’re the only people whose thoughts we can hear at length.

Oscar Wilde or Mark Twain. My chances would be a LOT better with Oscar Wilde, I’m more his type being a guy and all. But I’d be too conventional for his tastes.

So Samuel Clemens it is.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. Bradly Cooper is a genius. I watched a program where he metamorphed, live, on stage, from a regular guy into the Elephant Man. It was mind boggling. I’ll see if I can find a clip of it.

And yes to Mark Twain. I always figured I’d have a crush on him AND on Albert Einstein.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Here is one. It’s not the same one I saw, but it’s still amazing.

LadyMarissa's avatar

Part of Yul’s appeal was his bad boy attitude & his ability to just NOT care what others thought!!! For me, Paul Newman was my heartthrob!!! His beautiful blue eyes could have had me begging for anything he wanted to do!!! I found Tele Savalas sexy but NOT because of his body!!! I also loved Jim Garner because of his respectful, sweet & protective side!!! Cannot forget Patrick Swayze when he was in Dirty Dancing. I still miss ALL of them!!! Yep, I’m STOPPING..THANKS for the memories!!!

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

Oh my, I didn’t know Bradley Cooper killed on stage in the West End.. I just knew him from movies and Between Two Ferns.

Swoon!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Isn’t he something @Call_Me_Jay?

We’re I into men, I would be very into George Clooney. He is certainly dreamy.

LadyMarissa's avatar

I love looking at George Clooney; but, I see him as being a very selfish lover which wouldn’t excite me!!!

Dutchess_lll's avatar

Oh yeah! George Clooney!

tinyfaery's avatar

Sexy and attractive are not always interchangeable nor do they always occur simultaneously. I’ve always thought David Duchovny is sexy, but not necessarily attractive.

Dutchess_lll's avatar

I agree..but how would we define this @tinyfaery?

LadyMarissa's avatar

I agree with @tinyfaery. David is sexy but he’s also VERY BORING…qualities that CLASH!!!
Mel Gibson is another that was extremely sexy in his younger days; but, is boring as hell when he tries to carry on a conversation. It takes MORE than LOOKS to trip my trigger!!!

janbb's avatar

I forgot George Clooney – he’s sexy and intelligent and liberal.

Adagio's avatar

It would definitely have to be Jeremy Irons, even the voice is enough for me.

Pinguidchance's avatar

As bald midgets go, Yul Brenner (sic) was even sexier after the accident that caused the limp, although changing his name to Walter Brennan was remiss.

Other notable stereotypes imply that we beautiful people are mere playthings for the wicked ways of wastrel women.

I wonder how women would feel if men saw them as toys to be enjoyed.

Kardamom's avatar

I’m pretty sure you already know who my pick is, but for some of the newer folks, I will let you know that it is Alan Rickman.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

Sexy and attractive are not always interchangeable nor do they always occur simultaneously. I’ve always thought David Duchovny is sexy, but not necessarily attractive.

I think I know where you’re coming from, but I would use very different words. Almost the opposite words.

Because I think sexy means “I want that in my bed, we could hang out and have fun for a week.” Kristen Schaal and John C. Reilly would rate above classic world-class beauties like Iman and Jude Law.

I’m going to choose someone young and current. Cody Fern

KNOWITALL's avatar

Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Iam Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries), Chris Helmsworth (Thor), Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire), Travis Fimmel (Vikings actor) maybe a little Justin Trudeau for dessert….lol

LadyMarissa's avatar

OOOOOO…I’d love to lick Taylor Kinney from his toes to his nose…EXCEPT he has lousy taste in women & I don’t want to be on his list!!! ;)-

KNOWITALL's avatar

@LadyMarissa Same. But those eyes though….wow, gorgeous.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I had to look him up. He certainly is attractive…but there is something about his eyes. I get the impression he lacks…..kindness. I could be wrong. It’s just an impression. Maybe it’s what I see, or think I see, in the eyes first that determine whether I’m attracted to a man or not.

LadyMarissa's avatar

@KNOWITALL I cry EVERY time I look at him & remember his taste in women!!! I bet he would cry at the thought of me ravaging his body. Out of respect, I try to NOT look at him very often!!! LoL

Dutchess_III's avatar

The only person I’ve seen that he dated was Lady Gaga. What’s wrong with her?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Now he is “quietly dating a 26-year-old girl from South Philadelphia, Alanna DiGiovanni, and unlike his ex’s alter ego, we’re told she’s not a Fame Monster: DiGiovanni is a former Atlantic City bottle-service waitress who now works in radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.” Doesn’t sound awful to me.

LadyMarissa's avatar

@Dutchess_III I’m into the eyes myself. I find that the eyes are the window to the soul. I think that he has kind eyes & he was loyal to his woman until she dumped him. I think he could be a really good man with the right woman. What’s wrong with the Gaga? She makes me gag…NOT my cup of tea so to speak!!! I hadn’t heard that he had started dating again; so, I was NOT commenting on his current honey…I’m just NOT a Gaga fan & it broke my heart that he was!!!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I don’t know anything at all about Lady Gaga.

KNOWITALL's avatar

I also think Anderson Cooper is lovely to look at. :) Love him!

Dutchess_III's avatar

He is! And did you know his grandmother was Gloria Vanderbilt? I was fascinated when I read that.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Dutchess_III I liked him before I knew that, but I did know that. Did you know that his mother and grandmother were both named Gloria Vanderbilt?

His brother committed suicide by jumping out of their penthouse. The whole family is fascinating but he’s always felt special to me.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I like him too.

LadyMarissa's avatar

His Mother refuses to leave him an inheritance because she wants him to stand on his own 2 feet. What I like about him most is that he doesn’t whine about how unfair his Mother is to make him work for a living…he just makes his own fortune!!!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@LadyMarissa If you haven’t read his Wiki, you should. I’m not sure why but he is utterly fascinating. From getting malaria to this:

On the side of the road [Cooper] came across five bodies that had been in the sun for several days. The skin of a woman’s hand was peeling off like a glove. Revealing macabre fascination, Cooper whipped out his disposable camera and took a closeup photograph for his personal album. As he did, someone took a photo of him. Later that person showed Cooper the photo, saying, “You need to take a look at what you were doing.” “And that’s when I realized I’ve got to stop, [...] I’ve got to report on some state fairs or a beauty pageant or something, to just, like, remind myself of some perspective.”[8]

LadyMarissa's avatar

I love him already…I don’t need any more reasons to love him!!!
