We Are Gay UK

This is what gay men actually notice first about each other

Are we all butt and package obsessed? Apparently not.


In a recent survey by THEGAYUK, we uncovered that gay and bisexual men are more likely to notice the eyes first of someone they were romantically or sexually interested in, rather than the butt or package.

Readers were asked to choose out of four body parts, the eyes, the chest, the penis or the butt, which they are most likely to notice first of someone they fancied.

Given the choice out of the eyes, the chest, the package or the butt, perhaps surprisingly most people chose the eyes, with 43 percent of admitting that it was the eyes that attracted them first.

Next, our eyes travelled southwards to the butt, with 23 per cent of guys claiming that an impressive ass would give cause for a second look. The chest area was next with 19 percent.

The chest came third in our poll, with just under 20 per cent of us admitting that we found that area appealing. (C) BIGSTOCK



Lastly, proving that we’re not all bulge obsessed, just 16 per cent of the people who answered the poll on Twitter said that the package was the part of the body they looked at first.

However, some also suggested that teeth were important as well as hands.
