"Lika barn leka bäst" - Equal children plays best.

Can't blame young boys for wanting something that is similar to themselves, they are just taking their first steps into "the real life" without any knowledge or experience (gods know that "the adults" won't give them any tips) so they just cling to anything that is familiar.

Myself. I like a gal that I can chug a glass of ale with. Then again, I'm not a boy.

Boys and young men grow up brainwashed to believe that girls and women are some kind of higher beings and are to be worshiped. That's the reason some guys turn very bitter once they learn the truth. But let's have fun point for point.

- Innocent

What else would a goddess be?

- Young

Fertility, the older the more likely complications will occur. Also lowers the number of potential children.

- Virgin

That's mostly for long term relationships and marriages. A woman who has a too high partner count either has piss poor judgement and would therefore make a terrible partner or doesn't want to take any responsibilty for her own actions and would be an outright abysmal partner.

- No body modifications/mutilations whatsoever (like piercings, tattoos, etc)

In other words taking care and loving her own body.

- Pale skin

Never seen this thb, but most likely a sign of health.

- Naive

Or easy to impress, young guys don't know jack about how to impress women.

We really need to teach boys to hit girls just like they would do with other boys ;P

I never had such an obsession, at least not that I can recall. Are you asking about like teenage boys specifically or males in general?

Almost everything you listed there is a turn-off for me.

Most people would like someone on their level. "Like barn leker best" and all that, as stated above me.

People have different tastes, just because you don't see the appeal doesn't mean it isn't attracting to someone else. It's like asking why people have a certain taste in music. Also I don't think tattoos in general are a bad thing, but I feel like a lot of tattoos tend to be cheap and unattractive.

I don't know for me when I hear the word innocent it means trustworthy. If I see someone with multiple piercings, tats, and I knew they had multiple partners than I be less inclined to trust said person. The word virgin to me means they care about long term relationships and not just one night stands which lets be honest is a rarity in this country. Naive could mean multiple things such as I see many young people as book smart but are idiots when it comes to street smarts.

Idk about you guys, but "Pure" girls sound so boring. (also unlikely)


It has to do with fidelity and fantasy of a conservative image.

-No one is innocent.

-Young is subjective to the individual's tastes.

-Virgin means that you don't have to think of the fact that she has been with another man, ever, because she hasn't. Many straight men are competitive. I am very competitive when it comes to anything, school, video games, whatever.

-Body modifications are associated with delinquents. Delinquents are associated with experimenting both with drugs and sexually. That goes back to the whole has been with other men that you have to quell your competitive nature against.

-Pale skin is subjective to the individual's tastes, it means nothing.

-Naive is that straight men who usually like this type of girl also like to be relied upon. To be made to feel useful.

They may in fact be boring in practice, however it is just a fantasy after all.

---------------------------------
My personal tastes are as follows

I have rather conservative tastes. I don't mind people having liberal tastes, but my tastes are a bit more conservative. I don't drink, smoke, do drugs, nor have I ever. I have had alcohol, but never enough to get drunk. I don't have any tattoos nor do I plan on getting any, they just seem like a pointless "LOOK AT ME!" sign you pay a person to stitch into your body.

Smoking, doing drugs, and an excessive amount of drinking are turn-offs to me. Any type of permanent body mutilation is as well. Flashy hair dye is ok.

I have no preference on the virginity or skin color topics. I'd prefer it if a girl was smart, I hate dealing with people who show only a passing interest in everything. Young doesn't matter, I'm fine with about +/- 8 years.

All of that actually makes sense. It's really just a fantasy.
But I've known boys who legit thinks these types of girls (or even most of them sometimes) exist and it's a concern.

First, I HOPE you aren't generalizing about what boys like.

The answer is in your question. They are "boys."

Boys (and girls) still have a whole lot to learn about life. Yet, most of the time, they think they have the world figured out.


No I'm not.
I'm usually speaking from what I've experienced personally.

Probably both.
I have/had mostly male friends who range from ages 15-25, and from what some of them told me what kinda girls they prefer, it's usually something like that (or at least like 2 or 3 of the things I listed).

If people are dissing boys who like girls like that, they're kind of dissing the girls too.

Girls like that are probably few in number, or don't exist at all. Those traits are of anime characters, which definitely don't act like normal people do and are purely fictional. I don't see it as a problem though as long as you realize that this "pure" girl that exists in anime most likely doesn't exist.

This is the first ive heard of it...

Well, i guess some guys want to have the feeling of ''owning'' someone, and it's easier with the qualities OP mentioned than a strong independent girl...

Because anime girls are the only girls these "guys" are capable of getting.

On the other hand, they're obsessed with those Japanese girls who "bring the pure anime-girl to life". Unfortunately for them, these uh, "pure girls" are:

- acting the part with high pitched voice and a lot of physical care

- with a lot of makeup, circle lenses, plastic surgery as well sometimes

- acting like super innocent babyish "women" while in reality they're totally normal like everyone else

- copying "innocent", childish mannerisms including speech patterns, voice, and expression

That pure-girl is almost always going to be a carefully constructed act.

It is very rare this type of girl ACTUALLY exists. What they're going to get is a creepy, disturbing and poor copy of a 2D character. Better to let those weird fantasies live in the moe and loli animes guys!

Agreed. I feel offended because some people are viewing those traits negatively.


People are dissing our existence.

As long as a girl isn't fat who cares if shes pure.
