Abstract: "Body dissatisfaction is a problem for a large percentage of boys and men, but male body concerns differ from those of girls and women. Specifically, males are significantly more likely to want to increase their size, particularly in terms of muscularity, while females typically want to get thinner in order to match the culturally defined body ideals. Compared to women, men may also be somewhat more invested in how well their bodies function, especially in terms of athletics and fitness than in appearance (Smolak and Stein, 2006)".
