The first time I saw D’Angelo’s now iconic video for ‘Untitled’ I was mesmerized.

He not only sounded like he was the second coming of Prince, but the visuals of D’Angelo’s glimmering, chocolate body were simply astounding.

As D crooned about pleasing his woman, the camera slowly panned over his expertly toned physique, teasing viewers with the promise of seeing a little more than the FCC would allow.

By the time the chorus kicked in, and D’Angelo stood unflinchingly and seemingly naked in front of the camera, many women (and probably a good amount of men) zeroed in on what I affectionately call “The Promised Land,” the sculpted V made by his chiseled lower abs and hip flexors, that lead right on home.

Dubbed “sexy lines” by Men’s Fitness, the V is one of the most delicious parts of a man’s body, and also one of the most difficult to attain.

Although many men try to crunch their way to “The Promised Land,” the V takes serious work. And that’s why we love it so.

Planks, lower ab exercises, and vast amounts of cardio help men sculpt this area and give their partner a visual roadmap to a happy ending.

Fellas, we love the V, not only because it shows you are committed to your health, and but also because it means you’re probably committed to pleasing us as well.

So before you decide to skimp on your next run or hit those oblique exercises, don’t. Your boo (or future boo) will thank you later.

All hail the V!

Do you love the V? What do you think is the sexiest part of a man’s body?

    So, I think “the v” might be genetic just because I know for a fact that Gucci Maine had one even when he had his pot belly. Another thing – I have one too…even though I am a girl. It is not as intense as the ones you see on men, but anyway I really dislike it just because it is associated with male bodies. But yea, the one way I see it diminishing is when I suck my stomach in to be super flat, then it looks less apparent, but when my tummy is just chilling, you see my v. I have a pretty small stomach already btw so it’s not like the bulge of my tummy is creating the v – I’ve had it since I reached puberty.
