Do ya think I'm sexy?

Don't answer that. But did you know that - if you're a new mum - I might be your man?


I know, difficult (if not impossible) to believe. But bear with me. This is going somewhere. I promise.

You see, the Cambridge Women's Pornography Cooperative (I'm not making this up) has found, in the cause of its long investigations, that men who change nappies, sign lullabies, rock babies and get up to do the night-feeds are the biggest turn on. Forget the six pack; the chiselled features and over-endowed, er... you- know-what, what women want (these women, anyway) is a hands on, nappy-changing, meal cooking, baby-bonding dad. And that's not all. Apparently, all women (whether new mums or not) find the sight of a man in marigolds irresistible. (I know, I cant quite believe it either.)

In case you're wondering where I got all this from, whether my cyber-surfing has been taking some dodgy turnings, let me put the record straight. I read it on The Alpha Parent blog. In fact, she even has a copy of the book (oh yes, there's a book stuffed full of hot dads holding babies!) Porn for New Mothers to give away in celebration of her first year of blogging.

Now I'm probably not the best arbiter of female desire but I do wonder... me in my marigolds or Mr Clooney in Armani? No contest, surely.

Still, you can't argue with science, can you?

My career as porn star starts here...

  1. Hmmm I'm not convinced. Can I have the man holding the baby naked from the waist up with full ripped six pack on display (and the moon on a stick)? Ta muchly.

  2. Who are we to question research? Bring on the Marigolds.

  3. I think Kelloggs Ville makes a valid point. Though I have to say, a man that's slightly frayed around the edges (not that I'm making any comment on you, obviously - rather my own home situation) and who takes his fair share of baby care duties rather than one who looks purty but never changes a nappy would win my vote every time...

    1. Oh, I'm very frayed, PM, as you know... and not just around the edges.

  4. I'm with Potty Mummy, and I've seen the book in question in the book store here. New mothers are rather desperate for help of any kind so yes, you helpful sorts (like my hubby) are certainly much preferred in a mate.

    1. I always knew my day would come, Rebecca... mind you, you'd have to be rather desperate in my case!

  6. As a gay daddy, I feel I have a valid opinion too. I definitely find a man who not just helps out, but genuinely loves children and wants to be a partner (and not just a babysitter) is extremely attractive. Maybe not sexy in the traditional sense, but definitely a keeper!

    And some single gay men find it attractive as well. And even have a name for it: "Stroller Meat" http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=stroller+meat

    I like my men manly but old fashioned chauvanists get the boot. He's got to be hands on with kids and the house, or its hands off!

    1. Hmmm, as long as your definition of 'manly' includes wearing a pinny WW (sorry, apron!)

  9. Totally agree with this-my husband does all of the above and is gorgeous to boot-I'm a lucky lady!

    1. Well, you obviously are HM. And you know it, too. Which I think is very sweet.
