Today I was rather ***clears throat*** distracted by pictures of R&B recording artist/songwriter/producer Tank in his boxers. Did I click on the image to get a larger view? Yes. Did I check out his abs and ***clears throat again*** ‘package’? Absolutely! Would I ever consider dating a man that is comfortable with sharing pictures of his body to the world? Probably not. While exuding sex appeal is one of Tank’s trademarks as an entertainer, I oftentimes wonder what type of woman would consider dating him and other entertainers who toy with sex appeal.
I don’t believe this is a matter of challenging one’s insecurities as it is acquiring an understanding of one’s desire to keep the size of her man’s ‘package’ sacred. At what point is the line drawn? While it’s nice to have ‘eye candy’ on your arm, it can also be an ongoing competition with other women who are infatuated with your man’s sex appeal. Obviously if your man is dedicated to the relationship, competition of any sort is null and void; however, after checking Tank’s track record (four kids, never been married, more than one babymom, babymomma drama) I’m convinced that loyalty will be an issue in the relationship.
Ok, enough about my point of view… Ladies, would you date Tank?
