Title: How did you find out you like Muscular women?
Post by: Jimthehunter54 on August 17, 2017, 12:11:17 am
I can't believe this wasn't already asked.

Mines was when I was younger, my mother was cooking inside the kitchen and my brother and dad were out. I was flipping through channels until I found a P90x 30 minute commercial.  While I was watching I saw a woman working out and then she flexed while talking about her muscles.  After the ad ended I went to my room and just thought about that bicep for the rest of the day.  I checked the guide on the tv and found that it was on again at 3:00 AM.  I forced my self to not to sleep and to turn on my tube tv to the channel and watched it again. That's how I found out about my interests.

I think I always liked them, and whenever anything would come on TV or I'd see a fitness mag with a muscular woman on it it would excite me.

A 2nd cousin of mine (not super close so I rarely saw her) was a super athlete. Multiple sports, medals and trophies everywhere. She never lifted but she had a very lean tight body and I remember always being very excited to see her, even though she didn't really show off much. One summer our family was over and my mother was like "Go up and see what Kymm is doing" so I ran up to her room and just barged in (as any annoying 9 year old would)

She wasn't naked but it was about as scantily clad as I ever saw her. Very short shorts and a cutoff Aerosmith shirt that exposed every single one of her six pack abs. She was on the phone and looked up at me...went back to her conversation....I guess I was staring because the next thing she said was "Are my big muscles hypnotizing you?!" in a semi annoyed way

I just remember that drove me nuts. I felt like I probably got beet red. I just sat down and played Mario Kart at that point but I felt like I was "caught"

1. Seeing the muscle mag covers on the newsstands in the 80s as a wee lad.
2. American Gladiators.

I remember a book cover for a book called Battle of the Sexes had a strong female arm in an armwrestle with a male arm.

I also saw an Argos magazine that advertised some sort of muscle building equipment being used by a strong young lady and her arms were fully flexed and with very noticeable biceps.

And British Gladiators (it was just called Gladiators) with some of the girls like Panther I think, and one called Flame who used to do the tilt game I think.  Plus Lightening, Jet etc did have some muscle on the arms, but also legs....and talking of that of course whether it be on magazines (boot advertisements etc) or in real life I would get to see nice calf muscle and realised I liked that much more often than biceps of course, pre internet and pre wrestling sessions.

I can pretty much pinpoint the moment I realised muscle on women was for me. I must have been around 9 or 10 years I guess, and although it of course wasn't sexual, it was certainly like something deep-seeded inside me which suddenly unlocked.

It was the start of the day at primary school, we must have had maybe 10 minutes until classes started, and we were in the part of the day where the kids were all meeting up, and all our mums were standing around having their daily chinwag.

Anyway, the mums go a bit quiet for a while, only a minute or so tops, and then begin talking again. "Look at the SIZE of her", "she's too big", "her calf muscles are enormous!", "look at the shoulders", etc etc. Turns out a rarely-seen mum had just dropped her child off at school and was walking away. Turns out she was well known for being a competitive weightlifter, and also an elite-level champion. Not just county champion or anything but she was supposed to be one of the strongest women on Earth. No kidding! A top 1%er easily.

I don't know what happened to me but I just HAD to see her. I mean, I was pushing people out the way to get a glimpse of her. I didn't know what to expect and there was certainly no other way to explain what I was feeling right then other than complete and utter fascination. I mean it, something inside me was DESPERATE to see this woman. I had to see her. HAD to.

What I saw was a fairly short, what looked to me a fatty looking woman in shorts walking away. At the time I couldn't really understand what it was I was looking at. Reminiscing now, it was basically a less glamorous, dare I say slightly fatter, British Tina Lockwood.

In the days after that I found out where she lived (it wasn't hard, her son was in my class) and even though I don't recall ever liking her son, I do remember going past her house and seeing all the trophies in the window.

I also remember we asked her son if his dad lifted weights too, and he didn't, it was just mum. Was mum stronger than dad? I guess so, he said, haven't really asked.

And all this time later, with Saradas and Yahoo Groups and Google and Facebook - no I've never even got close to figuring out who she was.

The obvious answer is "my cock got hard the first time I saw one," but I'm guessing that everyone thought it was too obvious to bother mentioning.  I was kid approaching puberty with a sports illustrated subscription and they ran an article on womens bodybuilding.  Can't remember the names of all the women, it was the very early days, but Laura Combes had biceps and lats and I believe there was a picture of Claudia Wilbourne in there too.  And Cam somebody.  Anyhow, the idea that there were women out there that wanted to be powerful was a huge turn on for me and ever since then I have found them irresistible. Just wish there were more walking around out there.

I can't believe this wasn't already asked.

Right?!? Kinda hard to believe... maybe the next best topic on here.

As for me I always just remember being fascinated by the huge ripped muscles in general, male or female, from the first time I saw it. I remember getting very warm and hard early on seeing muscular superheros and anything bodybuilding related. Whether on TV (while rare, there was American Gladiators), or in FLEX and Muscle and Fitness in the magazine isle at the grocery store. I remember the first time I searched for muscle on the internet and it returning AMG.com (Andy's Muscle Goddesses) which would only help flower my knowledge of FBBs in general.

Can't wait to see what else gets posted.  :singing:

I was 12 and there was a new girl in my class who also moved into my street.
She was almost my height, but she had biceps, not just like a normal 12 year old should but hers were for a girl of her age, phenomenal, and she loved to show them off. She was always flexing. she knew that she had bigger biceps than everyone in our class, and she lorded it over us at every chance. We would walk home from school together and she would flex and ask me to flex, which I never did because I was so embarrassed that she had bigger muscles than I did.
I would get hard in the nethers and was all confused about it, but I loved it.

I can't really remember why I was always interested in strong women. But the first intense moments were back at school, when I was 15-16 years old.
She was a year younger than me. She was an attractive tomboy and always showing off her strength. First thing I remember, she was giving her hand for a handshake to everyone -she had  big hands- and she was squeezing the others hand so strong making everyone beg her to stop. I was really impressed when she did it to a male teacher, around 40 years old, as well with the same result. Of course she did it to me and I was really excited but it was a painful experience. The first time she flexed for me I was in heaven.. I touched her bicep and my fingers where shaking as I felt how hard was it. Of course her biceps where much bigger than mine. She realized that I liked it and she always challenging me to compare strength and muscles, but she never wanted to embarrass me. One day, when I was making some compliments to her about her strength, she suggested to armwrestle.. I was a bit scared because all my class was around, but the fear couldn't stop me.. She let me start first and it seemed that I was wining as I was moving her hand slowly down.. but only few centimeters before my "victory" she stopped me and held me there for a while. I tried to push as hard as I could, I just had that silly feeling for a moment that I could win, but it was impossible to move her arm any further.. Then she gradually started to put a little more power so she pushed my arm slowly to exactly the opposite position. I was the one that was about to lose now and I was really shaking, from the excitement and from the effort of course. But she didn't finish me.. She let me get back to the starting position and held me there for a while. Then she said.. "let say that it's a draw" and stopped. I was relieved and excited. Later at home I couldn't stop thinking about it... I laid down to bed, closed my eyes and thinking about it.. I was so excited.. She show me how much stronger she was, without embarassing me in front of the class..
Of course all these fitness magazines were feeding  my excitement very well. But I will never forget my armwrestling with Thalia..

I think it all started way back one summer while watching tv. In one of those morning/afternoon tv show did a segment with some BB (men and women) and I thought they looked interesting. Consider that I'm talking mid 80's amateur level ladies, they weren't big at all, just defined. Then I catched Getting Physical with Alexandra Paul and I was sold. Then on it was trying to catch any coverage I could see on any sports tv show. Then came M&F, Musclemag and WPW.

It was the early 80,s and my local national newspaper The Daily Record ran an article on Mary Scott,one of the first UK competing fbbs,like now a guys dreamgirl was supposed to be blonde,skinny with big hooters but Mary was dark,permed and  had muscletone.i thought "wot a bod &  what a sweet smile". she appeared on a few progs &  came  across like Lorrainne Kelly (warm,smiley &  friendly) she was a mum who ran a gym & came from Dunfermline,practically up the road from where I lived. & I thought "some lucky basket comes home to this? Mary would barely make bikini nowadays & as fbbs got bigger ,she kinda faded from the scene.
A few weeks later,the same paper ran an article on Carolyn Cheshire ,& the scot in me thought "wow,these English girls aint so bad" lol.This poor schmoe also thought my little island was brimming with fbbs,as I found out this has never been the case.
At least these articles were positive.In  following years,not so.It was always about the time when NABBA ran their wbb contest in southport,interviews would appear,.Once,same paper,on Donna Hartley with what became a familiar title in such articles."Why would a woman wanna look like this" its either that or ""she cant find a fella" bloody cheek,same newspapers  campaign against anorexia & size zero models.
Until you plucked up the courage to go into John Menzies (newsagents,pre internet) for the ms o issue,sightings of your fav ladies were scant & infuriating..Either on  uk tvs   latest attempt  at doing  Oprah,where like Andrulla or  Julia Abell would have to sit &  listen to an audience of fat ugly cows & douchebags tell her ShE,s not feminine.or some daytime prog where Kimberley Anne Jones or Loretta  Loma stand & grin as the host flexes his puny muscles under a suit &  says without fail "shake my hand,ooh me fingers har har!"
Schmoes cant really explain why they love fbbs.At the start they were an alternative to the glamour models we were forced fed to by the media.& you liked them as much as.but as I get older,I prefer a fit,muscular,inteligent woman who I admire for dedicating her life to how she looks to the skinny,dyed hair,airbagged z list celebrity models (tweak tweak) who,re afraid of eating.that are comparatively meant to be the norm!

I was about 10 or 12  and looking thru a book on the artwork of the Vatican  and was very impressed by Michelangelo's art.  Besides reading the stories in Action Comics of Supergirl and of course fitness and strength magazines.

For me it started at about age 14 or 15. I was in class and the girl besides me had her backpack open and inside her backpack I saw a fitness magazine (I don't recall the name of the magazine). In the cover were two or three fitness models and I asked her what was that magazine. She showed me the magazine and started explaining how she wanted to have muscles like them. Ever since that day I stopped browsing porn and started browsing female bodybuilder. Also the girl in my class was strong as hell. She had big hands and at that age (she was also 15) she could bicep curl 30 lbs.

Another day in class, it was just the teacher her and me. The teacher came to me to open up a jar and with all my strength I could not open it. I was sweating from all the exertion I made. I gave it back to the teacher and told her I could not open it but the girl said to give it to her. When the tescher gave it to her she opened that jar in a second as if it was nothing.

She was the one who started my love for tall women, female with muscles (bigger the muscles the better), and female with big hands.

HA! I must be older than all of you.
I was 20 when I saw the very first issue of "Strength Training For Beauty" with Reggie Bennett on the cover, back before she was a big thick wrestler on the Japanese circuit. Back then she had more muscle than any other woman I'd ever seen - even though by today's standards she'd barely get noticed on buffyshot. A few months later that started publishing Women's Physique World and it was all over. I was hooked then and the hook has only gotten deeper.

It's a good question -- and, in fact, I'm sure there have been similar threads. But, it gives me a chance to clear up some really poor reporting that seems to pop up when you google "Laura Combes" including a link to a post on this site, which either quotes stuff you'll see in Wikipedia, or the other way around. Either way, it's all wrong.

I suppose I'd always been turned on by muscular women, and only kind of aware of my reaction to a few Popeye cartoons that were in re-runs in the afternoon as I was bumping up on or into puberty. But, it was in 1979 -- (not 1981, got it??!!!) -- that Laura graced American televisions in a segment on Real People. It was like an electric shock to my system. I knew instantly that this was the most exciting thing I'd ever seen. The next year, she was featured along with a few others in an article in Sports Illustrated, "https://www.si.com/vault/1980/03/17/106774932/here-she-is-miss-well-what (https://www.si.com/vault/1980/03/17/106774932/here-she-is-miss-well-what)." Amazing double biceps. Still among the best, especially her right arm.

Then, other features started popping up... Women's Physique World hit the stands. Laura had a spread in Muscle & Fitness. I was making regular trips to newsstands to stare covertly at the muscle mags, and also NBC and ESPN started airing contests, and ESPN aired American Muscle Magazine. So, was born an addiction.

For me was after i watched the 1991 Olympia live on espn . I had seen fbb's on American Gladiators before and knew i like them . But that Olympia show was the first time i saw a real fbb event . Will never forget seeing Laura Creavalle , and i was hooked 100% . And around the same time Iron Eagle came out with Mclish , not long after Sharon Bruneau came on the scene . Awesome time !  But that first Olympia show was it

My earliest real life (non-media) memory is from 3rd grade, circa 1975, when one of the more athletic girls in my class flashed a double biceps pose at another boy trying to bully her, intimidating, and ultimately humiliating him in front of the class.  In the late 70s my dad officiated some national wristwrestling competition (the difference between armwrestling & wristwrestling escapes me now,) and a tiny, perhaps 4'11" female competitor and local champ was ripped and muscular - the first time I had ever seen a woman like that. After that came the Lisa Lyon Playboy that I lifted from my uncle following advent of Fbb contests on TV, and it never stopped from there. Though by no means muscular, Lindsay Wagner as The Bionic Woman certainly sparked my fascination with strong women, of course followed by Linda Carter's Wonder Woman. The profundity of puberty coinciding with the sport's advent stayed with me like an ever-expanding tattoo.

The heyday of women's BBing and magazines etc were well before my time, in fact i'm pretty sure my Muscle Awakening was through the Simpsons episode where Marge starts lifting. Also I watched a lot of WWE in my youth so Victoria and Jazz (and later Beth Phoenix) made big impressions on me.

When I was in grade school, there was a girl in my class that was stronger than me and had pretty big muscles. I just remember lying in bed not being able to fall asleep fantasizing about feeling her biceps. Then later that year there was an FBB on fear factor and same thing, couldn't fall asleep thinking about feeling her muscles. My fetish has been pretty omnipresent since then.

As a young boy watching tv I was always fascinated with scenes depicting female strength and dominance. Whenever I saw a catfight or a woman beating up a man I would be captivated. Years later I remember flipping channels and seeing a female bodybuilding competition. I only watched for a short while and although I was probably alone I'm sure I said to myself " She looks gross" When I was in my late 40's I got my first computer and of course the first thing I searched for was porn. After about an hour of that I decided to look for bodybuilders. The first images I can recall were of Lynn McCrossin. I was dumbfounded when I saw just how massive these women could become. My favorite website became Premiere Productions and the first two videos I ordered were Suzie - a woman who's scissors were lethal and Annie Rivieccio who was in her prime. I was lucky enough to meet Annie twice and one session we made a video for her clips4sale.

I do not recall the first moment I saw female muscle but I guess it was around my early teens and I was discovering female muscle in most magazines including muscle and fitness. I remember how attractive the females and how they seem very strong and powerful. I later discovered the internet looking at female muscle fansites and I began reading female muscle stories. It was along time ago, I think it was before my early teens but I know I had craving for female muscle in my teens.

Very difficult to pinpoint for me. I remember a ton of influences, but can't really say what came first unless I really stopped to think about it.

I was born in the early 90s, so in terms of mainstream media, I remember American Gladiators (re-runs anyways, I remember it looking dated even back then) and Chyna from the WWE being massive influences. Both were something I could just sit there and watch without feeling any guilt from a family member walking in. Literally zero interest in wrestling, but I would always watch for Chyna. American Gladiators was kind of cool, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't mostly just watch it for Zap, Diamond, etc. I also vividly remember being aroused by Chyna being able to fight against men, and I always hoped for some kind of crossover where the female gladiators would take on the male contestants, but never really saw any of that (outside of that game where they shoot a cannon at the different contestants). I also remember keeping Kiana Tom's Flex Appeal on whenever it came on, along with any female fitness competition that I would happen to stumble across. I also used to love going to magazine stores, libraries, or book stores, and would immediately seek out material on muscular women. Very rarely would I ever buy anything though, just thought it was too risky. If I did get a magazine, I may stash it for a bit but then throw it out. Not that they were anything great, just basic female fitness magazines (super awkward to purchase as well).

For personal influences, as seems to be popular in here, I always had a crush on the tomboy in school, who was always the best athlete and would challenge and beat the guys at arm wrestling, myself included (I feel like this is pretty much a right of passage haha).

In terms of getting into the bigger bodybuilders, I definitely remember that being a product of going down the rabbit hole on the internet. Chyna started it off, and I'd just steal off to the family computer to look up pictures of her, and then it just kind of developed from there. The FTVideo sample pic page was my go-to. I just remember it being a huge rush to sneak off, and I was as careful as possible about it as to not get caught. If my family left to go on longer trips or something, I remember printing off pictures on the printer, and storing them in my room. I also remember that one day I checked my stash and it was gone. Freaked out, and I know my mom would have thrown it all out when she was cleaning, but it was never discussed. Definitely had some doozies in there that would have been super-embarrassing to discuss (such as Colette Guimond pec pics), so I'm happy it never came to that. I never really looked up anything all that risque; some nudity but no porn, mostly just bikini pics and such. Once I got my own computer though all bets were off lol.

I won't go into details about this, but my life was pretty sheltered growing up.  When I was breaking into puberty, the celebrity crush I indulged was watching Gadget on re-runs of the Rescue Rangers.  My introduction to female muscle sounds made up but its true.  I was at Waikiki beach, with a girl.  We were sharing a beach mat and a really ripped female bodybuilder and what seemed to be her girlfriend/admirer set up just in front of us.  It was like a crusader's first taste of sugar cane.  My boner started pressing into the girl on my lap and thankfully she didn't catch on.  I was so fascinated I made up excuses to go snorkeling (to scope out the muscle woman), while my date thought I was embarrassed by the hard on and I guess she was secretly pleased at what she perceived to be my bashfulness.  It wasn't yet the everyone has a picture phone era so that was kind of a bummer.

Professional wrestling, American Gladiators, Fitness America Pageant (when ESPN was enjoyable as a whole) and seeing them in magazines in local grocery stores.

In no order, those things got me introduced to female muscle, and I'm so glad they did.

For personal influences, as seems to be popular in here, I always had a crush on the tomboy in school, who was always the best athlete and would challenge and beat the guys at arm wrestling, myself included (I feel like this is pretty much a right of passage haha).

Hmm, is that really a thing?

Funnily enough, I went one better than having a crush on the school tomboy, by palling around with a tomboy neighbour, when I went to visit one of my relatives in a small town a few times a year.
She was about 2 years older than me and shortly before secondary school when I was probably 11, we wrestled a few times one summer. I can't remember who challenged who but she probably started it because she would often try to assert her physical prowess and sometimes flexed a bicep to impress me and her friends (not that there really was a bicep there!).
The matches were close and we made each other work, but she was too strong and always ended up on top, really pleased with herself. It wasn't overtly sexual, but we would be alone in a back room of the house and as a pre-pubescent boy on the cusp of change, I was aware of a certain electrical charge and found it exhilirating to tussle with her.
It felt intimate and we both enjoyed it but although it felt nice lying underneath her in submission, she was really cocky and I did want to put her in her place sometimes, but I just wasn't able. I don't know if the age gap is sufficient explanation, as I don't think most girls just 2 years older would have been able to do that to me.

One time we weren't alone and wrestled in front of her younger sister who must have been my age or a fraction older, and after the older sister pinned me yet again, the younger one wanted a go with me. This memory has largely escaped me and I can't recall the final outcome, except that she was pretty strong too and it was all giggles, boasts and excitement.

Was this an influence or a formative experience though? I don't really think so, as I didn't see her again after that final summer and hardly thought about her for the next few decades. I think I was always intrigued by female strength and already had half-formed fantasies about it, and by the time I was 13, I was jerking off to Martina Navratilova's biceps.
It was another few years before I caught sight of the odd female bodybuilder on the cover of fitness magazines and that was always a wow moment, but it was the arrival of the internet in the 90s that really opened my eyes to the wonders of all those incredible muscular women.

Funnily enough, my experiences with the tomboy might have been as telling an indicator of her likes and inclinations as mine, as about two decades later, I heard she was in a lesbian relationship. I didn't think too much about it even then, but since then I've wondered if that's why she enjoyed being with a younger boy (and getting semi-physical ) rather than those her own age, whose interest in her at that age would have been more sexual (and very much vice versa, for most girls her age).
Maybe rolling around with a younger boy whom she could be in control with was a stepping stone to getting hands on with the weaker sex, ie. the rest of her own gender. Or maybe she was just fond of me and I'm talking shite ...

On holiday in my mid teens. We would go to the same beach every day if it was sunny. Generally, a bit further down the beach were another family with a son and daughter of a similar age. The girl had fairly short hair, was pretty and very athletic. Her thighs looked immense, particularly compared to my skinny legs. She would generally wear fairly short shorts, and she and her brother would play football (soccer), badminton, on the beach or just go swimming.
At that age, I was really shy, and just watched from a distance.

One day, I noticed she was carrying a sports bag with the logo of a football team. I lied, and said I was also a fan and we got talking. That was three days before the end of the holiday!

Amazingly enough, we were both on holiday in the same place at the same time the following year, so we had an opportunity to renew our friendship. Her name was Barbara, she was a sports fanatic and intended to study Physical Education at University. We were never anything but friends, but I'll never forget those legs.

Somehow, not sure of why, the neighborhood tomboy and I put on boxing gloves for a sparing session. She easily backed me into a corner and in short order had me in that classic position  where she would hit me in the face, double me over with a punch or 2 to the stomach, then would hit me in the face and again double me over. I was defenseless and she was hurting me- eyes watering, nose starting to bleed, the poain in the stomach was excrutiating each time she landed a punch.   She stopped the boxing because she said she did not want to hurt me.  I have never forgotten that- dont understand exactly why, but this became an " erotic signal" for me- being defeated in a fight by a tough girl or woman.

A few months  later I am reading through my Dad's copy of the National Enquirer- come upon an ad in the back for pictures of  lady wrestlers, circus strongwomen and acrobats,  muscular women-  ad was by Bernie Kobel in Tampa, FL. I was in puberty by then- got such a hardon, just from reading the words and then fantasizing about what the women would look like, how strong they might be-- but never ordered anything from this. I was a kid, living at home.

A  year later- now I am in Junior High School- and while browsing books, I come upon Modesty Blaise-  the scene where Mrs Fothergill kills an English spy with her bare hands- first she slaps him around, casually breaks one of his arms, then the other- then she straddles him and chokes him to death with her hands.  I bought the book, and for the next few years, this became one of my " go-to" fantasies.

50 years later I am married to a former college athlete, we raised 3 kids, have grandchildren,  and have a great sex life- indulging some of each of our fantasies.

I am sure that formative experiences play a role, but it's our responses to them that make them seem significant. If as a younger person, you got turned on by seeing a strong woman in pop culture or in person, it seems likely it had that impression on you because that bit of code was already in your programming.

It actually happened for me when I was in my early 20s in college.  I was just browsing through a porn site and I clicked on a video of a HJ/BJ and the girl was pretty built.  I thought it was the hottest thing ever and it took off from there.

I was even before there was sometime like FBB attracted by strong girls who liked to wrestle with boys
I was aged as a an elementary school boy then ! - and also liked to wrestle with one special girl a lot
I was really keen on at a very early age
as a teenager I joined a gym at age 16 (was quite skinny then ..)in the 80`s and was quite aroused by the magazins
l found there like "Muscle & Fitness " and then I bought "Women`s Physique World" which was amazing to me
and so it went on  as the videotapes emerged (Ray Martin /WPW )  and finally the limitless world of the web &
not to forget the sessions with live FBB

I remember on vacation in Chicago once, I was about 13, I had already been interested in female bodybuilders after watching Skin Deep, that one scene, and catching some shows on tv at 4am.  Anyways, so I went to the hotel gym, the woman was pretty built and jacked and she was all "you're too young to use the equipment." I didn't know what to say, so I just slowly backed up, but went to my room and thought about it afterwards.  Wow, I just remembered that!

I was at my uncle's house. He had stack of Playboy mags in the bathroom.
I think it was in 1976 came the issue with LISA LYONS. Her bod was muscular when compared to the other ladies,
no where near as big as today's Goddesses, but nevertheless, her looks was like Cupid's arrow through my heart.

I think I was around 13 years old and just out of pure boredom I went through my mother's old feminine magazines she always held on to for WAY longer than necessary.  Well one of them had a random advertisement page on muscle enhancements.  I was about to flip the page when my eye caught the sight of a small picture of who I now know was Sue Price.  I was mesmerized as I had never seen a female bodybuilder before.  I cut the picture out of the mag and held on to it for a years.  But it wasn't until about 3 years later when I saw a picture of Annie Rivieccio out of a muscle mag while at work when I realized I love a woman with a muscular body.

I liked to stick around magazine stands waiting for my mom do the shopping and once a heading about female bodybuilders caught my eye. I tried to imagine what it looks like and only some months later found a cut out with Lenda Murray at my friend's. I was lucky to share my passion with my friend :)

I saw Carmella Cureton on a talk show in the 90s. She was Carmella Key back then. Carmella was dating a male bodybuilder at that time and told the crowd that she was stronger than him.

I also saw Corey Everson on Hercules several years later.

Come to think of it Female Bodybuilders were a big topic in the 90s. Especiall for talk shows.

Hey Streetfighter- great post: one lesson I see in your personal story is that muscle and strength may be the initial attractant, but there has to be the making for a long-term relationship, if that is what one is seeking. ASnd it takes two people working together on that relationship for it to last.
I once and briefly pursued a bodybuilder/ wrestler. But I quickly realized that there was not sufficient compatibility for  any meaningful relationship to develop. But the sex was great for awhile.

I had just climbed into a boxcar in Watsonville, CA (this was back in the '70s), and found a copy of the old Police Gazette.  Inside was a picture of Abbye Stockton, puffing out her chest and standing on her tip-toes in a three-quarter pose.  Not very muscular by today's standards, but for the times she was a revelation.  That old magazine saw about every railroad yard in these fifty states before it fell apart.

 I stumbled upon pictures of Pudge Stockton in some very old Strength and Health magazines, while browsing in a used book and magzine store in the Times Square area back in the early 60's. The magazine was from the early 50's. She was "the gold standard" back in the day.
Another star from the old days was Bonnie Pruden.
She had an exercise  TV show back in the 50's.
Bonnie  had a fabulous muscular ass- her buttocks, even in the leotards and tights she always wore, were really well-developed and hard-looking.  For some reason, I was fascinated by and turned on by that  ass!

Well I tink I had a slightly different access to female muscle.
As a eight or nine year old I discovered dad`s bodybuilding magazins in the basement together with a friend.
We saw all the pictures of those bodybuilders from the 80ies. This must have happened in my sexually formative time, so I developed a big attraction towards muscles as itself (no matter what gender) by watching those bodies over and over.
Perhaps this would led me to get gay, I dont know. But later in the 90ies I realized that  there are also big muscular women around and this was kind of a holy grail for me, the combination of muscle and female. So it turned out I didnt get gay but have a big attraction towards fbbs since then!  ;)

Karma please!   :clap:

I first saw Bev Francis on the Ray Martin Show when I was in High School. I am not sure how old I was but they were discussing the judging of the Ms Olympia. Bev did not win as she was deemed to be too masculine and the criteria specifically said female competitors had to be feminine. So in the show itself, they showed her walking down the steps of the Ms Olympia stage and had blocked out her head. Trying to see if it looked like a man's body in a bikini.

And all I could think was wow.

I knew I loved watching muscles move. The shape and movement of muscle in any living thing is poetry in motion. Watching the Olympic Games is a must - the gymnasts are amazing!!

The funny thing is, I never saw it as being something I desired in men. It was something I desired for myself but there was no gym in my home town, I had no idea how these people got this kind of muscle definition except through hard physical work and sport. When I got to University I was introduced to a gym. In one month of doing a basic program put together by a friend of mine who had done some training in high school and I had more muscle definition than after six months of swimming every morning. I was hooked :)

A *very* athletic girl in my grade. The whole package was amazing but I particularly liked her full, diamond-shaped calves. Even as a child she had good ones. By the time we finished high school, lots of track and being genetically gifted had given her better calves than you see on most pro fitness competitors, something like Lindsey Boswell's. She almost never wore shorts, so every time she did was a treat. Tight jeans looked amazing on her, like she was going to burst out of them the first time she flexed. I had a crush on her from before I even liked girls all the way through graduation. Sadly, I knew she was so far out of my league as to defy any longshot chance you've ever seen in a coming-of-age movie. I was very careful never to interact with her, never to tip my hand. It would only have annoyed her.

Anyway, once I knew I had the interest, it was a short step to finding Muscle & Fitness in the local bookstore. This was back when bookstores were everywhere and magazines used to put actual big girls on the cover instead of the cheesecake aerobics instructors of later years. Shelley Beattie, Lisa Lorio, lots of the 90's women. Shelley is still my all-time favorite.

A couple of other people have mentioned Skin Deep and THAT Raye Hollit scene: for me it was one of the most incredible moments of my life, as it provided me with my first orgasm  :) 

This was UK, c.1990: no internet, no cable/satellite TV, a fairly sheltered middle class upbringing. I was 12 years old, it was the summer holidays from school, and I had just got a little portable TV in my room. I used to go through the Radio Times (the oddly named TV guide) looking through the movie reviews for the telltale warning: "nudity". I had been feeling tingles around girls and when looking at sexy women on TV for some time, but had not yet popped the cork, so to speak.

And so I settled down into bed, locked the door, and turned on Skin Deep, waiting for the promised nudity and the enjoyable tingles it would give me. Until then, I can't remember seeing a genuinely muscular woman, though I had enjoyed looking at female gymnasts and athletes on TV, not to mention a girl at my school who had what I remember as astonishingly thick and muscular legs for an 11 year old (though perhaps they have grown in my imagination over the years).

Raye blew them all out of the water. Lying in bed, in the dark, I had absolutely no idea what was about to come (in more ways than one, heh) when she emerged from the bathroom and turned down the light. As I said, I was an innocent kid in an innocent age: a couple of my worldier friends had made some knowing cracks about "wanking" and of course I had laughed along without knowing what the hell they were on about.

And then she stepped into the spotlight, shrugging off her shawl, exposing the lushest, most beautiful, powerful, erotic vision I had ever encountered in my young life. My stomach lurched and I became dizzy even though I was lying down; I had the feeling you get when you think you're about to vomit, only somehow more pleasurable and exciting. Through the neurons and as-yet-undiscovered pleasure centres exploding in my brain, I watched her flex that unfathomable body, and heard her say something about it being "all yours....how do you feel about that?"

It was as if she was talking to me. My dick had reached diamond-level hardness and I began involuntarily thrusting my hips back and forth beneath my duvet as I watched Raye finish her show with a giggle, and approach the bed: from behind, my eyes ate up her flawless, powerful body as she removed her bra, focusing (inasmuch as I could focus on anything in my state of extreme panicked arousal) first on her thick, shapely bottom, and then on the glimpse of sideboob and back to the ass as she peeled down her panties.

As if I couldn't get any more aroused, she was talking to the wide-eyed guy in bed (ie me) in a teasing, dominant way, as if she was guiding me into my first sexual experience, which indeed she was! "I hope you're not frightened now," she said, as that unbelievable naked body straddled John Ritter's penis. My own penis was now beyond my control, humping the bedsheets like a locomotive. I imagined Raye on top of me instead of the actor, those immense naked thighs squeezing me, strong hands rubbing my chest and face while her huge chest bounced before my eyes and her long blonde hair tickled me. Asher lovely face headed downward, my uncontrollable jerking reached fever pitch: I lost control of my entire body and mind; literal fireworks were going off in my head as I released the longest, most powerful orgasm I have ever produced. It must have been thirty seconds from start to finish.

As I lay trembling, looking glazed-eyed (and glazed-panted, heh) at Raye doing aerobics in the following scene, I literally did not know what had occurred. What the hell was all this goop on my shorts and duvet? Was this supposed to happen? Had I broken something? One thing was for sure, I was gonna try it again, with women like Raye as my inspiration! Ah, to be young again  ;)

It was the 1980's and I was a young kid.  Back then there was Rachel McLish, Gladys Portuguese, and my favorites Carla Dunlap and Mary Roberts.  Later in the 80's I had a bodybuilder teacher Cathy Palyo.  I didn't know who she was but I saw her calves and was mesmorized.  I have been a real fan ever since.  I marvel at the way a womans body can transform.  Its not how you grew up thinking about the way ladies are supposed to look back then but none of my social conditioning ever stopped my admiration of the effort, discipline, and of course the results.
