How do men experience body image compared to women? On a physical level and an emotional level, what does it mean to possess a healthy male body image? And how do our sexualities tie into our body image?

Join Tom, Ryan, and first-timer Jacob for a discussion on male body image. We talk insecurities about body shapes, friendship desirability, penis size, balding, and our innate sense of masculinity. We meet Jacob to start the show, and we also premiere a new intro segment, “The Brother Beat”! Or something. Where you can listen to us talk about bathrooms for 20 minutes.

About the Author

  • I really liked this episode – especially Jacob’s sincerity and vulnerability. I hope we shall hear more of him in the future!

  • As always, great podcast, important topic. I’m just a little over the him now…62 in a month…and now I’m in crisis about my body image.
    As a teen and young adult, ask I was worried about was my weedy chest… cover that and I feel good…but today, parts of me that I’m quite attached to, just don’t work anymore. Gone my morning glory, groaning I bend, grind goes my hip bone on bone, aargh the hoar hairs out my nose and ears and no one ever told me my ears would grow bigger and my boy would shrink.
    This is a real crisis…feeling so unattractive…once again gym changing room blues…don’t Anyone look at me.

  • Thank you for sharing each of your own insecurities about your body images. Since I was a teenager, I would (ostensibly) jokingly say to friends, “I have to make sure I don’t get fat, or you won’t like me.” I still have a slight fear that if I were to put on weight, I would be liked less. I know this is foolish thinking, but I still think it. One benefit is that it keeps me active!
    Anyway, thank you gents for sharing openly and honestly on this topic. Jacob, it was nice hearing you on a podcast too!
