I've a question about Japanese guys... August 1 2001 at 12:10 AM
Why is it that young Japanese men who are supposed to be good looking- pop stars and such-, look more and more androgynous, if not simply feminine these days? I know there are exceptions, but in general, this seems to be the case. There was a bunch of gay Chinese guys from my university who went to Kyoto for the summer, and they came back saying that Japanese guys don't look manly enough...and then, I also know these two girls from Japan, who keep on falling in love with white guys who later turn out to be gay (and thus the girls are heartbroken)
I once saw a study that showed that American women find either Leonardo DiCaprio or Sean Connery more attractive depending on the time of the month...(i.e. hormonal cycles turn maternal instincts/instincts that help procreation on and off) Are Japanese women stuck in the Leonardo DiCaprio phase of the month all year around?
I haven't actually lived in Japan, so I don't know if Japanese women actually go for those androgynous types...
