It's really rare that I see any male models on any of these sites, they're 98% female.
It's sad really because there are plenty of guys I know who would love to get into site modelling.
Why is the demand for male models much lower on these websites?

Most of the male models I work with, I advise to make ports on 'that other site'..they get a lot more work from there, or from my contacts on fcebook than they ever do from here.

Men don't look that good in photographs - (I have to be honest).
I've only photographed a few blokes but even the better looking guys can look overly posed/unrelaxed and I struggle to get them to do anything which doesn't look gay .

There are a few goodies on here though who look awesome..

I think the average female can look great in the right picture but for men I don't think its quite so easy so most people just don't bother.

I actively look for male models as much as female ones. Unfortunately there aren't too many to choose from that are close enough, toned or comfortable working nude.

Yeah that's true. xD
Well I've never worked as a photographer so I wouldn't know.
I guess females are more versatile.

Ah right.
Yeah I would just like to see more male modelling just because I think it's interesting to see the different sorts of modelling males can produce.
The pictures I usually see of male models are always really good on average when they do actually get shot xD

If you deduct the photographers shooting only glamour because they want to, rather than are trying to sell it, virtually all are male photographers looking for female models. There will be a few looking for male models and even fewer looking for both.

That is probably half the reason. You are unlikely to persuade any of these people to change what they shoot.

The negative way to look at it is there is little opportunity here for male models. The positive way is that there is plenty of opportunity for females.

I have seen posts from people who shoot male models complaining of their reliability and seriousness. Joel Hicks is an example of someone who has got it right. Clearly there is a demand for someone like him.
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why
