    "In all Israel there was not a man so highly praised for his handsome appearance as Absalom. From the top of his head to the sole of his foot there was no blemish in him." 2 Samuel 14:25

    One of the things I cannot ever understand is Western conservative Christianity's emphasis on women's vs. men's visual stimulation. There's this absurd idea that women are asexual robots who don't respond to attractiveness of the opposite gender! The stereotype is that we don't notice those things, but instead focus on emotions, personality, etc.

    Yet when I was not even yet a teenager, and still as an adult in my mid thirties, I've always noticed and salivated over EXTREMELY handsome men.

    I mean, what are you all not seeing here? These men come in all ethnicities, eras...and they are all AMAZING to look at. I don't understand how women don't get excited over this. I know I do.

    Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    But yes, we kind of have to hide our reactions when we see someone we like or we may attract people we don't want.
    For example, if I am honest and express my opinion about these matters, some men that are listening may think I want to have something with them. And it has happened to me multiple times.
    I don't even know why they react like that.
    But, yes, I feel like I can't, as a woman, express myself freely.

    Sometimes when I see an attractive man I kinda stare. But not for too long but also I kinda do that to anyone really (not in a bad way I tend to do that unintentionally ha)

    My wife and I were watching an old movie. I think it was Hitchcock's To Catch A Thief with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. At some point in the movie my wife declared: "Damn, was he a handsome man!".

    Hmmm. 40 years ago I was stripping for parties. None of the women present ever had difficulty expressing their enjoyment of the eye candy.

    Western Christianity is about obedience and love if you love Yeshua(Jesus) why would your eyes be interested in what some call physically!!!! attractive men ?

    At least, that's how it's supposed to be in marriage. Regrettably, we all struggle with sin, so eyes can wander away from the marriage partner at times as well.

    My wife and I agree that others are attractive (even some family members). We just don't have license to pursue anybody else.

    Always good not to stare at people if you can resist doing so.

    I get alot of stares in public for who knows what reason, and it makes me paranoid. Like "Oh geez, that person is staring... WHAT ARE THEY PLOTTING? I'm not trained in karate, I dont know how to handle this, and they could strike at any moment!"

    Fun fact: How women's sexual attraction/desire towards men was interpreted varied in the history of Christianity for none other than political reasons. When it came to excluding women from positions of power within the church or society, and restricting their freedom to move within the world, the argument was that women's sexuality was way more animalistic and intense than men's, hindering their ability to control themselves and think rationally.

    So yeah, the fact that now the narrative often presents the exact opposite way is probs due to changed societal circumstances - sexual liberation means women have to be taught to be sexually passive in order to keep them under some control. It also complements the narrative of sexually proactive men, of course.
