Real Bodies | 'I have no problem being naked, but I'm too polite to be an exhibitionist!'

Ben, 23, Royal Navy Officer Cadet "Worrying about your body is a waste of time. Trying to stay fit and healthy is always good - you should look after your body - but also be confident in what it is; everyone has their own insecurities and life is too short not to love what you have." Height: 6ft Weight: 65kg Do you follow a strict diet? Not at all. I have recently been trying to eat fewer carbs and more vegetables and protein, but I have no strict rules about it. Do you have any guilty pleasures? I have two. Ben, and Jerry's. Who’s your ideal man? Paul Walker (of fast and furious fame) and/or Charlie (one of the resident DJs at KU bar, London): it’s the piercing blue eyes, cute smile, dusty blond hair and toned athletic build - basically better versions of me! 4 Do you take selfies? Yes, I have an expressive face, and I like showing off where I am when I'm travelling - though if I am ever with someone I would rather they take the photo of me to make it look more 'natural' Do you feel comfortable naked? Yes - I have no problem being naked around people, but only if those people are also comfortable with my nudity -  I'm too polite to be an exhibitionist! Are you happy with how you look and would you change anything about your appearance? I am fairly happy, although I would like to put on more muscle and definition, which is probably quite standard! Do you think the gay community puts pressure on gay guys to ‘look good’? Yes, but I don't think the pressure is too great - looking good in this context often means in my experience dressing well and styling to your strengths - but of course there should be no pressure at all in an ideal world.
