I thought Dante only went for CPR.
Unless CPR is a prettied up Jabba the Hutt?
...It all makes sense now...

Jabba is in the past; it is all fun until he tries to throw you into the depths of the Sarlacc for the lulz. The french-kissing was awesome, though.
Anyway, I'm CPR's now... until she tries to kill me.

As far as rape fantasies go, Atwood wrote a short story about them (called Rape Fantasies, in fact). I'd heard of them before I read that, so I think Steal's right - they're not really all that uncommon. Or all that strange. I can at least grasp some of the reasoning behind them, unlike some other fantasies and fetishes.
Now, for an attempt to be on-topic, my definition of beauty...the individual physical attributes don't matter to me as much as much as the overall make-up. I have preferences, obviously, but you don't need to look particularly stellar for me to be impressed - it's all in how you carry yourself. I like someone with class, who is confident, fair, and able to express themselves clearly. A healthy and perhaps somewhat off-beat sense of humour is good, too. Someone who is comfortable with themselves is, to me, more beautiful than a doormat who fits all my aesthetic preferences.
Mind you, a lot of this doesn't show at first glance. It's like someone else in this thread said (somewhere in the first six pages, but I read those last night and I don't feel like going back right now), that even an ugly person can become beautiful to you over time as you get to know them better. Well, provided they have a personality you enjoy, anyway.
But for at-a-glance beauty, I like dark colours. Any combination of darker skin, or darker hair, or darker eyes. I like people who are lean and at least look like they could be athletic, even if they're not really (someone who's graceful, I guess). A nice, medium, healthy-looking bodyweight. I like hair that's at least long enough to be starting to branch into the "medium length" category, but not so long that you can sit on it. I also like bangs.
I like aquiline noses, delicate hands on women, and large, strong hands on men. Men should have visible body hair, but not excessive amounts (like back hair, eww). And well-trimmed facial hair, if any - and both men and women should have clean, straight teeth. I like women to dress somewhat conservatively (not in the "boring" sense, just covered up enough), and I'm rooting for old-fashioned men's suits to make a comeback. Alternatively, clothes that actually fit look good - and buttons look good on anyone and everyone. I like buttons.
Summary: I'm old-fashioned. This fits what I like pretty closely - more so if his bangs were on his forehead.
Edit - Also, I like deep voices.

Oh, I like long-ish (not long enough so that you could tie it into a pony tail, tho) hair on guys, I think. :3
But then again, different things look good on different people. Some people can pull off wearing glasses really well. Other's look a bit awkward. Same goes for clothes, hair color, make-up, etc.
So I guess I'm back to where I started. Beauty is a mystery. That's what it is.

You know what I think I may have discovered is most beautiful to me? Open mindedness and the willingness to try new things. I think that quality would make most any social interaction permanently interesting.

STD wants someone who will take it in the pooper while wrapped in saran wrap. Now THAT'S trying new things.

I think that the oceans are beautiful, with all the incredibly complex mirco-orgianic-economies- doing their work for survival, I think that the stars as they twinkle on in distances that I can only imagine to imagine. I think that humanity in is creativeness, insanity and cruelty is beautiful. I believe that there is a great deal more to beauty than mere symmetry or even something that is pleasing to the eye or mind. Something becomes beautiful when you can see it for its unique complexity in the universe.
I think it is interesting that for the guys general in this tread, what you defined as beautiful was a woman, but what is more interesting is that for the most part you wanted a women who was not pleasing only for her physical attractiveness but because of inner intelligence, for her ability to be equal to you intellectually. I must admit that this makes me happy. It also saddens me because this topic is beauty but what is really being discussed is attractiveness. So even though he asked the question, how do you think beauty is defined in modern society? His initial response to his question really was, these are these things that are considered to be attractive. Thus making his question what do you think is attractive, and you have all answered according to that formula. I’m asking for a little bit more, what you find beautiful and how do you define what is beautiful. I understand how many of you defined a woman as beautiful because in western culture especially, women are considered to be beautiful you could almost put it as part of the unwritten cultural definition of a woman.
Now, I find that darker featured intellectual guys are pretty attractive to me, and that the same goes for women although I’m also a fan of the red head (but that really is only in comic books.) I also like scruffy looking guys.

Don't you already have a boytoy?

this is a hard quiestion for me... I have preferences, but I don't want a girl to be an exact clone of my perfect girl cause there is not such a thing as a perfect person (boy or girl) and don't you dare to say that god is perfect keep your religious things away of me.
For me the most important thing is the personality, but is more like a "What she must not be" than a "She must be like this"
DEAD TO THE RETARDS!!!
DEAD TO THE FANBOYS!!!
DEAD TO THE WERESHEEP!!!
