It's not just teens that want a thigh gap. I'm a 25 year old woman and I am trying to get my thighs to be thinner because I am pear shaped. Furthermore, many people who are trying to make their bodies look better (according to their preferences) are not starving to do so. There are healthy resources out there to thin out the thigh region. A quick search turned up this: http://www.thighgaphack.com

Idk about other guys, but I don't find the thigh gap particularly attractive. I think Marilyn Monroe is the epitome a good looking girl's body, and she doesn't have a thigh gap at all:
