Description

In this episode, Dax invites Rob McElhenney (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet) and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick) into the attic to discuss their obsession with male bodies. Dax remains shirtless through the duration of this episode while the three dissect childhood insecurities that led to this predilection, their opinions of the perfect male body, body dysmorphia, societal influences on females vs. males, and not being in on the joke. Rob mentions the high point when a stranger wanted to take a shirtless picture of him and Kumail reveals a tidbit about his abs. Monica commends the three for talking openly and vulnerably.

My boyfriend is decidedly not The Rock, but he runs 5 days a week at 4 am. 5 miles. Former military.

Great insight into my own generation's male body dysmorphia and women's perception of it. Trying to accept myself and understanding my worth isn't in how physically jacked I am is a big part of my own evolution. Thanks for the discussion.

I think the difference between men and women regarding Media and society pressure is that most of the women that are being represented look thin and you either have skinny or fat and in this scenario the normal looking woman is of a certain shape that I wouldn't define it as an everyday woman. But for guys is different and they are in the right category. The meaning hasn't changed. supper jacked, normal and fat or thin are all the same things that they are in real life.
