    Ok, guys AND ladies of TB, weigh in on this topic. I saw the "Banger Sisters" Sat nite (decent flick), and it got me thinkin about the good ol' days when I was with a regular giggin band. Some women would alomst throw themselves at you. :cool: The same girl might not give you a second look if they saw you on the street. Ok, please feel free to reverse the scenario (guy after girl musician), but I don't think the effect is quite as powerful.

    (edit for my fat fingers:oops: )

    first of all...women go for BASSISTS not musicians:D

    and i dunno...maybe a sheltered thought that maybe the band will make it big one day and she could date a rock star:cool:

  3. Because being a musician automatically makes you creative and sensitive.

    I, as a male, am quite turned on by a woman who plays music. I don't know if I'd feel the same if I wasn't a musician, though, so I can't really help you on that. I've wondered this myself.

    I think has to do with the stereotypes of musicians - either they're the wild, party types, which some women like (don't ask me why, I'm not that type), or they're the moody, mysterious, sensitive-but-in-deep-emotional-pain type, which, I think, appeals to the mother in all women. A lot of girls (and guys, but that's another story) like the feeling of taking care of someone, so they get into these intense, codependant relationships. I'm not really this type either.

    So, I think people have these preconceptions of what a musician is like, and those stereotypes are attractive to some people. I think this also leads to musicians playing into those stereotypes, which creates lots of problems, but that's a tangent.

    conical hit the nail on the head.

    dunno if I can expand on anything said, but I sure do fancy the female members of any band of my prefered musical style. I think it just has to do with someone liking the same kind of stuff, and the fact that someone attractive is on the same terms as you in terms of music.... and music can be a great indicator of personality.

    I need to get gigs, thats all I can say.

    They are?!?!? :confused:

    Chicks fall for DJs and rappers, but most don't even know what a musician is, let alone a bassist.
     
  10. Yes, I know a few girls who like people in bands, just because they're in a band. Our singer is a very attractive girl and people like her because a) she's cute and b) she's in a band!

    There is some truth in it, IME, actually.

    I imagine that the creative/sensitive thing has something to do with it - but I've also been told it's something to do with the hands. The hands of a musician have some kind of appeal...

    I've been pondering that perhaps it has something to do with musicians being at the center of attention. Y'know, sort of 'leader of the pack' thing.

    don't speak for all women. I for one hope that in the long run, i am here to do many more things than care for incompetent men. :rolleyes:


    what the fudge has happened to feminism
     
  15. I'm not entirely sure why it is that some girls go crazy for musicians, but some certainly to. I would like to add that only a certain type of girl goes for that kind of guy. I mean, being in a band is an added bonus for most of the girls I talk to in reference to partners, but it is only the girls who are musicians or major music fans themselves that go crazy over musicians. I think the reasoning from there is self explanatory.

    I don't normally find women who play an instrument as more attractive than others consciously, but it seems that unconsciously I'm drawn to them. Either there are a lot of violin players around in the female population or I have a very weird knack.:rolleyes:

    I'll buy into the debate over the nurturing role of females as well. Whether its nature or nurture, girls are brought up to 'mother' the men in their lives. It is a fact of life that girls from day one are brought up in a world in which it is their job to look after people.

    Who is it that a child first socialises with? The mother. Thus, once a female develops an understanding of being a girl, she sees her mother as a 'role-model' and begins to mimic her behaviour, deeming it to be 'normal' (an example of a Primary influence). When the girl then goes off to preschool etc, she sees that the majority (literally 99%) of those exhibiting the mothering role at the facilities are female, reinforcing her behaviour (Secondary influence). Media, particularly television plays an important role of further reinforcing this behaviour (Tertiary influence). Anyone girl that watched the Brady Bunch while growing up has got an incredibly high likelihood of being the 'mothering' type.

    Of course, there are girls out there who exhibit no signs of 'mothering' and perhaps it is due to having a less maternal mother than others. It could also be due to not having a good relationship with their mother. In any case, women are brought up to mother "incompetent men" because of the socialisation process experienced by humans. In saying this, I am not agreeing with the process - I'm just stating how it is.

    I apologise for the length of this, I'm bored.

    [k]

    EDIT: feminism is about equal rights and opportunities. Feminists fight for equal pay in the same jobs and to erradicate the male bias in society. Just because someone believes in equality doesn't mean that they believe women should give up maternal instincts and effectively assume male characteristics. That would in fact completely contradict all that feminists stand for - women being themselves and being treated as equals.

    Race car drivers. Whoa. They attract beautiful women.
     
  17. Grasshopper: Do not ask why women are attracted to musicians, simply be music and enjoy the free booty.

    Put water in a cup, it becomes the cup.

    Put beer/vodka in a cup and give it to a pretty woman.
