I have stretch marks all over my legs, I have them on my calves not noticeable (I still wear shorts) back of my thighs, inside of thighs and all over my bum.

They are all white thin lines but they are vast, and it gets me down.

Im not fat at all and I am a size 30 waist, I just have large thighs from playing football and rugby alot.

Would this turn girls off?

I've got some around my chest at the side and underarms. Some small ones on my biceps and forearms too. Got them from weightlifting when my muscles started to grow. They were a bit obvious at first but have gone now. Not a problem.

Problem is most of mine have faded, its the texture of the skin that is the problem, I have so many but yet all of them are so small (width) but are long. It looks like i have crease lines all over my bum.

I have a large amount of them on my stomach, as a result of weight gain (I was only about 1 or 2 stone overweight). They are big deep purple lines. It looks like Ive self harmed/had a baby.

Nooooo! I know I can only speak for myself, but personally it wouldn't bother me at all! I have stretch marks too, things and bum, and they get me down as well so totally know where you're coming from.

I'm curious- what about the other way round- would stretch marks turn guys off? (Answer honestly, don't worry about causing offense )

don't worry about it, I know several guys with this and I think nothing of it - most people have stretch marks somewhere just from growth spurts

Nope. Stretch marks are not an uncommon thing. Many people I know, both male and female have them.

Odds are, they won't even notice them. And if they do, it's a normal thing. Quite a few girls have stretch marks too! They may even be relieved to see that you have them too! :3
I wouldn't mind.

Bio oil apparently helps to make them fade, but I can't say that from experience. I wouldn't worry about it.

Not at all!
Stretch marks on girls are commonly spoken about but not so much on guys - guys get it but because of the culture of women sharing in magazines etc you just read about it more. It's nothing to worry about and the likelihood anyone will notice is very low. If you are worried though bio-oil, sudocrem or just moisturising may help. It's more about being confident to ignore it -normally it's only yourself that notices such things like that or cares about them.

I have stretch marks on the inside of my thighs and up towards my crotch, on the inside of my arms and a couple on my shoulders. The ones on my back and arms are barely noticeable, just slightly lower than the skin surrounding them. The ones on my thighs are big, purple and really angry looking. Like huge gashes down to the muscle. I guess most of them are from weight gain, started doing powerlifting about 12 months ago. Girls dont seem to mind, or even notice. I met a girl a few months ago who actually liked them, something to do with the fact that it showed off how much muscle there was on me.

Purple? I would get it checked with a GP if I were you. Especially if you're carrying a bit of girth.

Does 'toning up' help reduce the look of stretch marks?

If you got them through sport wear them with pride.

I have a few on my biceps that are deep purple and obvious and a load on my legs that are lighter. It's no biggie.

there's nothing wrong with stretch marks, they're very common on boys, especially those who have grown quickly. i've got no problems with them at all!

A girl won't mind because she will probably have some as well.

I wouldn't care about a guys stretch marks, just like I'd hope he wouldn't care about mine.

I had horrendous stretch marks, if you buy bio oil and just apply it for a few days they slowly disappear after like two weeks.

I've never had them agian.

I thought I'd go anonymous for this because it's a little strange. I actually have very faint stretch-lines on my penis. Do any other males have these? I've been told I'm pretty well endowed but my penis didn't just grow overnight obviously. Why would I have them there? :confused:
