When Curtis James Jackson III made his grand entrance into mainstream hip-hop, my girlfriends barely could keep their panties on. No one measured up to 50 Cent: his swagger, lyrical skills, and oh yes, those muscles.

“Girl, I want a man like that. I love ‘em tall and big.”

“Really?” I wasn’t moved.

“Yes, I want him to pick me up and throw me somewhere (read: sexually). I’d love a piece of that.”

“Wow. Well, I’ll have to pass on that. He’s too damn big. I’d be afraid he’d crush me.”

While I’ve dated all types of dudes, I’m pretty standard on body types. If you’re not lean, toned, and muscular, I probably won’t touch you. It’s simply my thing. You know, I’m into the track and soccer types. Since I’m barely 5’3 and slightly over 120 pounds, I’m not a feeling the idea of a 300-pound football player. I’ll pass. One wrong move in the bedroom and he literally could crush me. My libido just dies in the thought.

But my girlfriends are muscular men die-hearts. Pair 50 Cent’s body with a degree, thriving career, and traditional family values, you might witness a catfight. I have a friend that would jump on the plane in a minute to be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s wife. I’d roll over before accepting even a night. But of course, there’s some overlap in our attractions. We appreciate those who fall in between the lean and huge. We love Boris Kodjoe, Derek Luke, and would do Tyrese in heartbeat (with a no talking rule). It all depends on your preference, unless you’re just not into muscles at all.

Let’s have a little fun for Frugivore Month. What are your thoughts on muscular men? Love it or hate it? Weigh in.

    Not me! I like ’em BIG! Dwayne Johnson is the stuff of dreams! I could just imagine 50’s body over next to me. The lean body type is okay, but doesn’t excite me like the body builder type…

    I would take muscular over obese or skinny any day, so I guess I like it.

    50’s body is pretty good to me.. I do like buff guys though.. but I don’t want them to crush me.. either lol.. as I am small too.. A body like 50 or armand van helden. .is fine by me.. not the body builder type too.. might be too much lol..

    I prefer men with lean muscles, like a boxer or UFC Fighter.

    50 Cent’s body is the business!!! I love muscular strong guys…But then I can get with a guy who is lean…As long as he isn’t fat, i can deal…
