    Do people who show of their bodies feel a need to display it for self esteem issues?

    I saw a gentleman in the store when I went with my son to get some junk food. He was in great shape, jealousy need to repent of type of shape! He had tattoos on his arms and my son and I stared at him. I was uncomfortable because I thought he was great looking but sad at the same time. I would love to have a body like his, but I am not willing to put in the work to do it. I don't envy the tattoos. I dont really envy him, but what do you think about people who have to show off their bodies?

    I don't have a problem with it, if youve got it flaunt it as they say, I appreciate it when a woman looks good and seems comfortable with how she looks and I am sure women apprecite it when mn do the same.

      It does't bother me personally, but I do avert my eyes of women. I don't want to lose control over my lower regions. I wonder if the person is bothered so to show the opposite of his feelings he flaunts it. I have done that as a teen.

    it's a good thing to me. tattoos show that a person is an individual, not a drone who lives by what they are told but rather by what they think. as for being in great shape, considering so many people are in horrible shape, i think it's great to show it off.

    I don't have a problem with people showing off their bodies or even walking around without clothes.
    Clothes were not born with the human being. Almost all of the rest of creation is naked and does not feel guilty about it. Then why should man?
    Clothes or the habit of concealing our bodies is born out of traditional compulsions. There is nothing right or wrong about it.

    I think there are many reasons some people show off their bodies. Some do it for attention. They are lacking attention somewhere in their life so they get it this way. Be it a woman showing off her body or a man... Some do it to attract the opposite sex...again an attention getter but for different reasons!

    Before I took over the business I run now, I ran another business where a lot of public transit were in and out--one time a lady got off a greyhound bus and came into the business. She only had on a t-shirt and panties. She walked around in the travel center looking at stuff as though nothing was wrong. She was overweight and her body was cellulite stricken badly. It was not a good sight--however, guys were staring and looking and flocking around. I don't get some men. Just because they could see skin it attracted them! I was dumbfounded. Some men have no shame, nor do some women. I had to ask the woman to leave or go back to the greyhound bus and find some clothing. This was not a sight to behold.

      astounding! I wonder about that, the psychology behind those men and the woman objectifying herself for their pleasure. It doesn't matter whose version of beauty it is.

    I don't see anything wrong in showing of a fit body. I guess people do it for many reasons but generally people with low self esteem stay covered up. If you've worked hard to get a good body it seems a shame to hide it.

    I do not care people who are deliberately showing off their appearance and physique, be it man or woman. I want peace-loving, and not egotistical people. True enough, we are born naked; clothes and ornaments merely aggrandize people.

    It's the hard work that comes from working out to get to that point. If you've been working on your sports car, putting in the parts, getting it painted and really to go, you're going to want to show it off because of the wrench time. Also yes, it is a little bit conceitedness that is involved. I mean if you look great, you going to want the attention, not to mention you weren't the first 2 to look at him and he knows that.
