The Idealized Male Body: The Effect of Media Images on Men and Boys  A significant proportion of images in the media involve some element of sexuality and present idealized body images for both males and females. Research on the sexualization of young women in the media has highlighted the effects that such messages have on the mental and physical health of women and girls. Boys and young men are also influenced bysexualized images and messages conveyed by various media sources. Studies are beginning to explore the particular challenges that young men face when presented with daily media messages about the ideal male body and appearance.  In this issue of Check the Research, some of these recent studies about male body image and the media will be discussed.
