WE LOVE DAD BODS

FORGET RIPPLING MUSCLES, DEFINED V-LINES AND 6, 8 AND 12 PACKS, 2015 IS THE YEAR OF THE DAD BOD: BASICALLY JUST NORMAL GUYS. TYPIFIED BY CELEBS INCLUDING LEONARDO DICAPRIO, WE INVITED SIX GUYS TO SHOW US JUST EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.

As Attitude magazine presents its annual reader’s Hot 100, we take a look at the Dad Bod craze that swept the internet this summer. In the year that women rallied against the ‘Beach Body Ready’ ad campaigns, under the tag ‘Dad Bods’, regular guys found comfort in the knowledge that you don’t need to be ball and chained to a workout routine to be considered sexy. There’s certainly something attractive about radiating confidence, charm and charisma and not feeling like you have to be pressured into following the crew to the gym five times a week. And while, yes, most of us love to gawp at a finely toned physique – just take a look at the ones you voted for in our Hot 100 supplement – let’s face it, those are fantasy images and most men don’t look like that. In celebration of those everyday blokes that aren’t full-on gym bunnies, instead radiating sexiness from inside-out, we invited six regular guys to complement the celebs in the Hot 100, and talk about the new trend for, well, just being you. Amongst them is straight guy Dan who found himself gathering a considerable gay following when his girlfriend posted a topless pic of him on Instagram… and international digital fandom followed.
