Dear Poll: Is it a Turn On or Turn Off?

Yesterday at JFK, the paparazzi were at it again. Traveling is painful enough as it is, but when you're a celebrity, the added chaos from the shutterbugs is enough to drive you nuts!

As you can see in this video, Nick Lachey was not very pleased with the cameraman even though he was just doing his job. Nick was certainly being a man's man by protecting his woman, but some ladies feel incredibly uncomfortable when their boyfriends, male friends or husbands cause a scene or go to extremes to protect the woman they love. So does your man coming to the rescue turn you on or turn you off?

I guess it could be a turn on, but with my current boyfriend, its a turnoff. i love him so much that i dont want to see him get hurt or in a fight. its weird but the one time i saw him get into a fight i freaked out and jumped in the middle and punched the guy myself haha. i definately dont want him hurting on account of me or at all, honestly.

My husband is the type of guy who always uses his common sense.It's definitely a turnoff if the fists are flying.I'm not into violence......

It is immature. Violence is against the law and it does not resolve problems. It would be a turn on if he were an effective communicator and could assert dominance without physical contact.

Definite turn on. That is the hottest thing. Ohh man! And I love how fans are so hypocritical of paps. When it comes to Lindsay or somebody like that, the paps should back off and they're all jerks but if it comes to somebody not as popular and they stand up to them the celebs are jerks. How does that work?

If the cameraman was JUST doing his job, he would have took the picture of them, and that's it. You don't use profanity, racial slurs, or sexually exploitive language just to get over on your competition! Whose to say that there is more photage from the same photographer being rude? What if she's pregnant? What man is just going to ignore another man calling his woman a slut? I don't think this guy is a hothead at all....hello he was married to JESSICA SIMPOSON! Half the time he looked like he wanted to slap her silly, I know I would have.

i think it's a total turn on. like some of you have already said, it shows that he cares.

If I were truly in harm's way I'd like him to step up. But if we were in a bar and some guy was talking to me, if my BF came up and tried to start a fight I'd be mortified. He's a mild-mannered guy anyway.

I like a guy who stands up for me and protects me but if my nonexistent guy acted like Nick I would be a little embarrassed. It's going a little too fair to start a fight.

If there is real danger, then it's cool. But after a few over reactions, he seems like a hothead. And beng laid back, I'd have to tell this dude to chill out, or get lost.

it is nice to have some one stand up for you if you are being harassed. it is obnoxious if he is going out and starting fights to prove what a man he is.

I think it's hot so long as it happens infrequently.

A man can show you he cares and can protect you by using his words, not his fists. The only time I'd consider it okay is if physical force is absolutely necessary, in which case, fine. But I don't want a man who needs to pummel another guy in the face or elsewhere just so he can feel like a man. Use your mind instead.

I'd like him to be chivalrous and stand up for me, but if he can do that by not fighting AND coming out the better man, then I'll be even more impressed.

i think only in very rare circumstances it would be okay for my boyfriend to use force to protect me but it would be a different story if it was a frequent occasion!

If someone has done something to offend me or attempt to hurt me, then it would be great. Doing it if I was famous and the ever present cameras were there again would be pointless and ridiculous.

i think that threatening another with physical violence is such a turn off! it's such an uncomfortable way to protect someone.

it depends on why he's defending me and whether or not he knows i can defend myself.
