Another user @codyjacobmusic wrote, “Never in my adult life I have seen a male model that has similar body to mine. I feel... almost emotional? Like I finally can buy something I saw and want and KNOW it was made for people like me in mind.”

“Men will be ashamed of having this body not knowing its what we actually love. Just be neat,” wrote @SheLovesArtemis, followed by an OK hand and kiss emoji.
