It's not unusual to hear of men using steroids to 'pump up' their physique under pressure to look ‘good’. Meanwhile, the number of men in England receiving treatment for eating disorders is reported to be on the rise. In this episode of The Naked Truth, five men – of all different shapes and sizes – talk about their own bodies and reveal what it’s like to feel the pressure to look the part in a six-pack-obsessed culture. If you, or someone you know, have been affected by eating disorders, the following organisations may be able to help: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2DRkg4JC7SLT3B7hlrn6DKN/information-and-support-eating-disorders -- Click here to subscribe to BBC Three: http://bit.ly/BBC-Three-Subscribe Did you know that we’re up to other things in other places too?

There are a lot of insecurities for many men, specially with the topic of "does size matters?". Good video.

I really loved this and these men are so brave. We need more stuff like this to help men get over their insecurities and let people know that guys suffer as well as women. Great work guys.

I actually think the big guy is quite handsome, and none of them are bad looking by any means, but I like all colors shapes and sizes 🤷🏽‍♂️

And women complain being expected to maintain a healthy weight. Well try bulking up. They also got it easier with butt and boob jobs. Try lengthening and making a penis thiccer.

There is somebody out there for everyone. Personally I'd love to have a boyfriend like Gavin. Does the gay community not realize that some of us love larger men? I'm honestly more worried that a larger man won't like me.

Im not a women who feels a man needs to be built to be attractive. Ive dated men of all sizes. Personality to me means a lot more. Also the one guy has the Fairy Tail symbol on his arm which is awesome!

PrinceChris93 (7 days ago)
First off it's even worse if you're gay many man have image issue. Im extremely skinny and I have to work extremely hard to put on weight using muscle mass powder forcing myself to eat dermatologist appointment, teeth Whitening, clothes, and it's not cheap you feel alone broken ugly off especially when you scroll through social media it makes it worse my insecurities are extremely high even though many people want to be skinny I weigh 148 and just want to get to a nice buffed healthy swimmers weight and physique

Their vulnerability is gorgeous... it pains me so much, that people have to struggle with keeping their stories, insecurities and issues bottled up.
Lubos Vasek (8 days ago)
Personality disorder is a prime issue for all of these men. All of them feel like a victim and that is the problem and not their physical look.
Nicholas C. (8 days ago)
my 2 cents, everyone has an image of themselves some people want to be an academic like einstein thats there thing, some people wants to be rich etc. some people really dont care about their body like im a lightweight guy i wanna be buff tho but its like meh ill go to gym sometime, thats not really what ticks me, bottomline do what makes you happy if you have a strong feeling that you are fat and its weighing you down then work on it until you bring your weight down to what you llike its your cross to carry and you have carried it, i know a lot of plump(not obese, obese is a disease and you should be concerned) dudes who really dont care about weight its just not there thing i also dont care about weight in women that much, like i would date amy schumer body type no problem its just not my thing, whereas other men absolutely care about partner weight and they would never be truly satisfied with anybody that doesnt look like bikini model body type its just relative ya know

So, I'm Canadian so I don't know anything aboot stones. So when Mark said they weigh 8 stones, I did the conversion and that's 112 lbs... which is exactly my weight. I am 25 and I have ALWAYS oscillated between 110 and 113 lbs. Always.
Alex the Hun (8 days ago)
Take my advice. Men should never express their emotions because we live in a World that uses, abuses and exploits men. Be hard, tough, cold, stoic and show no emotion. Also don't bitch and complain. Men are not women. If you want to change something about yourself do it. We are programmed to wake up in the morning and do what we got to do to survive a World that treats us utilities. At the same time be ruthless as a snake but gentle as a lamb.

Ned B (10 days ago)
Well, as a gay man, I can definitely say that since I have been working out for the last 4 years, the perception changed towards me. I think though that people should either do something about their looks where it is possible (the body) or accept the bare truth that look still matters. The bigger problem I think is social media which basically distorts people into something perfect. Even a muscular, athletic guy may have flaws, we deny those though because technology gives us the possibility to do so. This doesn't mean though, that anyone should be rude to another person just because of the looks. What I don't like is when someone is truly outside of another person's league but they still try in a pushy manner. Jeez, talk about barriers. So it always goes in two ways.

uranianhipster (11 days ago)
this video is so good, thanks for shining a light on this issue <3 i see that now more and more men are starting to become aware of these beauty standards and how they might impact thier own lives and not just women's, and it's great seeing that awareness and curiosity being explored and talked about in media.

As a male with my own body issues, I would greatly appreciate if YouTube took the age restriction off this video so EVERYBODY can see just how normal it is to have body issues.

Amazing guys! Never have I thought of Male body image along with insecurities. This is a good eye opener for us with negative self image issues. Thanks BBC and the guys brave enough to share their experiences.

OMG! I made a comment earlier about being overweight and not healthy and I got shit for it. Yes, fat guys can be healthy and skinny guys can be unhealthy! BUT, the majority of the time if you're fat and NOT 19, you unhealthy. Being slender, you have a better chance of being healthier. I was slender when I was young, and when I got older and gained weight, my health suffered. I even went to the gym. When I lose weight my blood pressure, sugar levels, cholesterol, etc, are perfect. Don't get mad you all. I'm in my 50s. You only get one life! And YES there are skinny guys who can be unhealthy, but for the most part they are in better shape than those who have too much meat on their bones! Or in my case, my ass!!!! Lol
ghiaccaly (13 days ago)
the sadest thing about the comment section is that people are shocked about men have insecurities or think that men are STARTING to have insecurities... like no men always had insecurities and it’s just so sad that people constantly think men are some privileged people that directly have it all because of their gender, fun fact : they don’t.
Antonio Carniero (13 days ago)

The Fairy Tail tattoo though!
swtv1754 (13 days ago)
I don't understand what is attractive about men who build up their chest. I don't mind a toned chest, but when it's too buff they remind me of man boobs. I'd rather have the skinny guy than a guy with big pecks. I like just an average body that is SLIGHTLY under or overweight, or right in the middle.
