27209 ratings | 1631361 views
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?

As an anti-feminist, I will *never* understand why most women think men "have it easier". Men are told not to show emotion or weakness, they're told they have to behave a certain way, look a certain way, men are losing out on job opportunities to women and in some cases the woman is unqualified, more women get accepted into university than men, more men than women commit suicide every year. So *why* do so many women say "I wish I was a boy". *BE GRATEFUL YOU ARE A WOMAN OTHERWISE YOU'D HAVE IT 10X HARDER*

This is amazing and finally uncovers that yes males have body image issues as well! It sucks that we live in a world that doesn't take Male body image issues seriously or at least serious in American culture because it's considered hallarious, too gay or a dumb that a guy cares about his own body.

Interesting to see the other side, from a view of a girl it’s definitely different. On social media or in the society no one talks about men or boys having these issues too!

I think sometimes as human Men we forget to realize how unique and beautiful we are as individuals and tend to want to look like "Apollo or Hercules" to appeal to the other sex and become depressed because we think we dont fit those standards.

hello I'm bored (10 days ago)
Basically- society and their expectations are dicks. I'm quite grateful. I'm 14, I've had some fair relationships with guys and have abs with a decent face. But I feel depressed knowing I'll go through life having my face pressed in the dirt about being proud of yourself.

Elaine from Seinfeld put it best men are not sexy naked that is bad naked... the man's body is more like a Jeep it's there to get things done now the female body on the other hand is a work of art... some females destroy that part best stuffing too much food into their faces

If it's not easy for westerners to share about body image, imagine what Asians go through. We are known for being conservative in the most insecure thoughts. Thanks for sharing! It was insightful and impactful!

tim smith (16 days ago)
Well I'm short and always have been. Called names and jokes made but I have accepted myself. My mother used to say, better things come in small packages. Not that my package is small. Most women are attracted to confidence. The best opening line is Hi, with a smile. Sure I get depressed now and then but that's just life. A good therapist can help. Working out can be over done too. I don't see pressure from the media like women do. I know I'm never going to be tall or a model.

Straight men don't have to worry. Women are never attracted to man's looks. It's good to be ugly. Women are attracted to physically ugly men.

Sandra Williams (19 days ago)
People are so hyperfocused on this doctored idea of what the male or female form should look like. You can tell the difference between a masculine and feminine body. It doesn't matter how much muscle you have packed on or how large your breast or butt are. There is a natural curvature to a woman's body and a certain masculine build to a man's body. It's like people have forgotten how beautiful diversity is and rely so heavily on the media to set this standard of what people should look like. I am 5'11" and 130lbs and my body is no longer the "ideal" type but I do not care. It would be crazy to chase after a standard that is constantly changing! People need to start disconnecting from the bs. Stop allowing the media to set what your perception of beauty is.

Is this an example of what feminists refer to as "toxic masculinity"?
Chloe Staten (22 days ago)
3:45 is the most accurate description/ explanation I’ve ever herd. Honestly the best feeling (and worst guilty pleasure) is not eating all day, getting super hungry and then drinking super cold water. The way it hits my empty stomach feels amazing. I identify with him so much because I’m bulimic and borderline anorexic and I have body dysmorphia, however I don’t look like a skeleton, I actually wear and XL. So I feel like if I were ever to tell someone and try and open up they wouldn’t believe me.

We don't need this. The body image problem is a manufactured female problem (whimpering, really) being pushed into male culture to add more seriousness to it.I don't feel pressure on me to look a certain. These are fake problems. People need to stop exporting their own struggles to society. Blaming others for your shortcomings or struggles should be the last thing on your list, because if you acknowledge it's your fault, then you have the power to fix things.We're in a strange situation where people want the world change (that is everyone else) instead of changing themeselves to better their lives.
Jimena (10 days ago)
+MrSidney9 So you do something to get attractive.And if you are not able to get there, you feel unattractive because of beauty standards putten on you from society. Beauty standards are putting a lot of pressure on People, and could also lead to physical Illnesses. Anorexia, as an example, starts with the wish of getting thinner, because to be slim is a beauty standard. This is pressure. If you don't feel under pressure that's great for you, but other feel different than you. And sure, you don't need my permission to say something, but neither do I. IIf I think you´re rude and completely wrong than I can tell you that. As Long as we are both able to give Arguments for our opinion that's no Problem.
MrSidney9 (10 days ago)
+Jimena Why do men or women do anything? For many and differrent reasons. Many men try to get muscle so they feel confident and attractive, true. But that's different from saying the are pressured to do it. Why do women get butt and boobs implants? They wanna look attractive is the sole reason. But are they pressured to do it? Hell no. People who don't want to take responsibilities for their actions LOVE to claim that they are pressured/forced into doing this or that to explain their OWN decision. Most of the time women do questionable things to their body (like starving themselves or get plastic surgery) not because they are forced to by anyone, but because they think looking a certain way will give them a competitive advantage in the sexual market. I give myself that right to call these fake problems being I can think for myself. I don't require your permission or anyone else's.
Jimena (14 days ago)
So why do you think men are trying to get muscles? Because this is a beauty standard. In earlier ages People were trying to get fat, so society assume them to be rich. Every gender is affected of norms society puts on them. If you don't fulfill this standards you can be stamped as strange. If you don't feel this way, that´s great, but there are People who do and it is the most disrespectful thing to do, to call they`re problems fake problems. What gives you the right to decide which problems are part of society and which are not, when you actually have no idea about their social environment?
