Women That Sweat: Sexy or Gross??

Alright, gentlemen (and ladies who'd like to comment), I've had this discussion with one of my gym-rat friends numerous times & we always disagree. While walking tonight & watching the pool of sweat slowly form on the front of my t-shirt in utter embarassment, I decided to open this topic up for debate on here....I apologize if this has already been covered in previous forum posts.

Are women that sweat while working out sexy or gross? Keep in mind that when I say sweat, I mean dripping sweat-soaked shirts, not the cute little beads of sweat that form above a woman's lip or on her forehead. I, personally, think I sweat WAY too much during a workout & I cringe every time I leave a gym class to walk past all the men and women lifting weights or running in their dry shirts, while mine is soaked & clinging to me. I take a towel with me to my Zumba classes & sometimes that isn't even enough to keep it under control.

Last week, my friend looked at me as I moaned & groaned about how disgusting I looked after our workout & said, "I like watching you sweat because I'm jealous I don't sweat like that." It made me laugh, but I also found it strange how anyone would wish the sweaty mess (at least I think so) I go through following every workout on themself, haha.

So let me have it...obviously, I won't be offended if you think it's gross because, well quite frankly, I can't change the fact that I sweat, but I'm curious to see what everyone thinks.

1, 2, 3, go! :)

    I think people who sweat heavy are very sexy. I like the fact that they are working hard to improve their bodies. I think they are confident that while they are exercising and dripping they don't care what other people think. I know they are also the people who always wipe down the machines after they are done.


    Oh yeah I too sweat and drip and I don't care ...but oh how good that shower feels when I am done

    I don't find it either I guess... I mean, I see sweat and I'm like "damn, they're working hard" and I'm impressed. But I don't want to jump anyone's bones because they're beasting their workout. Maybe after they shower, then we can talk ;)

    Agreed. Sweating while working out is alright with me. Now sweating in nice clothes not moving- gross.

    I sweat like crazy...leave little drips everywhere if I do pushups or anything like that in the middle of my workout. I try not to let it bother me, but every once in a while I'd like to lay down on the mat and NOT leave a sweat angel.

    I don't think sexy, I think of it as progress. I'm proud to see my shirt drenched by the end of a workout. That means I kicked butt!! :glasses:

    A woman with a nice bod working up a sweat in some shorts or tight pants and tank top is way way hot. The sweat is not a turn off.

    Um...maybe a little gross sometimes, especially when I'm on the treadmill and the bottom of my ponytail gets sweaty from my back and then it kinda drips everywhere...I just have to be careful not to turn my head too fast or I get the guy next to me sweaty, too :P

    Some folks just sweat a lot - is it a sign you are working really hard? Those that don't sweat maybe don't work hard enough OR just don't sweat.

    I sweat a lot which I can deal with but hate when my face goes beet red.

    Definitely.

    Also, a womans sweat is SO not even the same thing as a mans. I've never dated a woman who smelled WORSE from sweat. Different sometimes, but never worse.
