    I'm just asking politely as I have no problem with this or anything. I'm just curious.

    And I know it's not all men but as so many men are doing it I thought I'd ask: “Why do you choose a female avatars?”

    Especially as in the real world most men are paranoid of doing anything that makes them girly.

    If you're playing a game where you are looking at your character in the third person, you might want to choose an attractive character to look at. But in Vrchat you don't see yourself that much.

    The more answers the better!

    Ok, I remember also talking about this subject when I was Psychology back in college and I believe it to be true. While I don't believe this applies to every male on Earth, it does hold true for a lot of males.

    I believe every child at some point before their teenage years gets interested in bodies of the opposite gender out of pure childlike curiosity which why some kids play doctor and such. This curiosity stays with us throughout life while the drive for it changes at each phase of human development. Teenagers no longer are just curious of the opposite gender just because their bodies are different but because puberty drives them to sex. As adults when hormone changes slows down and we're more in control of our sex drives the next step in curiosity would be what it would be like to be in bodies of the opposite gender. It's supposedly the natural and healthy next step in the curiosity of the opposite gender due to men finding a female companion in their life. To better understand and love one important person in your life you need to know what their body goes through.

    However human society and civilization throws a monkey wrench in the works saying that it's gay, weak, or weird to think for such things after our teenage years. Almost all men in the past conforms to society and represses this natural curiosity. It is only now with the changes in society, the internet and VR that most men are able to explore what it's "somewhat" like to be a female. For most men it's just the sexual curiosity while others it's the curiosity on how the denizens of a fake or simulated world will react or treat you differently than when you were a male in IRL.

    I personally fall on the later.

    I don't have any degree's in Psychology but it's fun to be in the body of the opposite gender I'd guess

    For me it's just due to the fact that there are hardly any male MMD models or clothing made for males in MMD. And since MMD is the most popular form of avatar in VRChat, I imagine that would explain it for a lot of other people too.

    I agree with Usagi, I just use female avatars to look cute.

    I think that female avatars are more interesting, the anime ones atleast. Maybe because I'm attracted to girls and love anime. You know how anime gives you like a connection with these characters and it's cool to seemily become and interact as them. A great thing about VRChat is that you can seemily become things... that you're not and you can expect the majority to accept you regardless. hECK, It's just a game right?

    Its a combination of being able to look cute, and having way more options in terms of outfits. Especially when it comes to MMDs there are just a lot more modelers focusing on stuff built for female models. Gives more options for being unique.

    i dont want to look at a guy in a mirror, so i just used female bodies for that reason, too attractive to females is the problem, specially if you have full-body tracking.
