Title: When was the first time you realized you liked muscular women?
Post by: Iron Maiden on August 11, 2018, 07:45:30 pm
For me it was back in 1997, I was 8 years old and I saw a cover of WPW magazine in a newsstand in Lima, Peru. I was mesmerized by what I saw, my heart started beating fast and also got a stiffy. Since then I've been a fan.

Well, my introduction came a bit later. I remember I saw the documentary Body of Work which featured Colette Nelson and Heather Foster. my love pf female muscle could have been much earlier than that. I was  six and read a Wonder Woman comic and the idea of  a strong woman was fascinating to me. The comic I was reading she was not really large in muscle size, but decent tone in the artistic rendition. As I got older the idea of a muscular woman became more attractive to me. When I discovered Lenda Murray that was the moment I knew I loved muscular women. When I turned thirteen I was collecting many pictures and muscular women related materials. When Youtube came into existence it was the best thing ever. All you have to do now is type in muscular women and a multitude of videos appear. When I was younger, you either had to wait if ESPN broadcast a competition or showed women's sports. Prior to video streaming sites, it was a rare treat. My realization came from comics and TV. It only expanded from there.

I noticed female muscle in high school.  They were natural muscle girls or on sports teams.
 
Next step was FBB contests on ESPN,  WPW magazine/videos.

It started with arousal by strong girls yet,even in primary school,when some tomboys were wrestling & pinning down
the weak boys /back then ,no muscle (FBB) girls existed back then..
Then ,beginning of the 80`s it was electified by the first BB magazins ,where was portrayed RachelMcLish,
Cory Everson,Gladys Portugues ,and from then on much more ,,,,
My obsession was growing slowly but steadyly by the expension of stuff in media ,climaxing
by the huge supply in the web ,and visting sessionettes regularly ...!

On a really base level I remember talking to a friend when I was really young about what our favorite part on a woman was (which for everyone else was obviously "boobs") but remember answering "stomach" AKA abs. Crush growing up was also on the tomboy who could beat the other boys (including myself) at armwrestling.

Getting into legit muscle, add another vote to American Gladiators (reruns for me). It was like female muscle "porn" you could watch without any fear of what your friends/family would think when you're watching it, because a lot of people just liked to watch the show. Zap was of course my favorite, but Diamond, Siren and Ice were right there as well.

Some other key influences were, first and foremost, Chyna from the WWE (loved her look, attitude, and the fact that she wrestled against men), the Xena TV show (don't think I ever really watched it, just caught the odd part of it and remembered really liking the character), and Kiana Tom's Flex Appeal, especially with Monica Brant on (no getting around this one, you couldn't have this on if mom walked in...).

I think the internet took care of the rest, but those were the main influences. I think most of it spiraled from Chyna TBH. Used to go on the computer to look up pictures of her exclusively.

When I was in year 5 at school there was a girl there who had biceps that were unusually large. She knew it too, which was the hard part. She would flex a lot, a few times a day during school, because she knew she had the biggest looking muscles. She loved the attention and that no one else would flex because they didn't want to be embarrassed. She wasn't the strongest, she would lose at arm wrestling, but I loved it and would stare unashamedly every time she was in my field of view. From there it was WPW, and muscle mags. then the internet

When I was a kid, just 12, I felt strangely attracted by a friend's mum who was insanely strong with muscular legs, but as being a kid I couldn't explain what it was.
Then when I was something like 16 (1988) the first FBB were shown (with bad feedbacks) for first time on muscular magazines. That was like I saw a god for the first time. Since then I never lost this passion

Seeing the contests and highlights on TV.
That began and fueled my passion. Great TV it was, too.
ESPN ran contests and Muscle shows (Muscle Sport USA, American Muscle Magazine), American Gladiators was on, Networks and news programs covered bodybuilding contests, Fitness shows were on ESPN (Bodyshaping) and so forth.

Gonna date myself here, but it was in the late 60's watching a Popeye cartoon. Olive ate some spinach and her spindly little body sprouted towering biceps. That did it for me!

For me growing up in the 80s as a kid I was always driven wild by these commercials for health clubs on TV. I remember ones especially for a placed called Ballys that would just show straight shots of these really in shape women working out and even when I got to see the Sports Illustrated swim suit edition I was always more drawn to the more atheltic and toned models it was after I accidentally caught a contest on ESPN that it all made sense and after that I knew.

I ve always wondered if the women in the contests had any idea of the spark that they started in the young men sitting at home

I was 13 and was watching the 1984 Olympics.  My mom and older sister were addicted to watching the Olympic Gymnastics coverage.  I was bored with it until I saw Mary Lou Retton for the first time.  I became obsessed with her and had to watch every minute of coverage.

Her buff shoulders and arms, and muscular legs mesmerized me!  I have been a female muscle fan from that time on!

I was drawn to muscular women even before I was officially attracted to women. I was entranced by mid 80s bodybuilding contests on ESPN. I grew up in the high-point of female physique sports in the mainstream media (mid '80s to mid '90s). Things like WPW and other magazines; ESPN and other sports channels showing contests and other things; TV workout shows; and even one Ms. Olympia shown on NBC got me more than hooked.

As far as what started it, I'm not sure. It's just always been there. I think my access to things like magazines and TV really helped it along.

I've always been turned on by their body confidence and eagerness to show off (whether real or manufactured). The pride, the revealing outfits, and the evidence of lots of hard work and dedication are big parts of my attraction. However those came about, they're at the core of my interest.

As a brief follow up to my post above: I didn't know of society's "Opinion" of us muscle lovers, since I didn't even know that I was one yet at only 13.  During the gymnastics coverage...which I was glued to along with my mom and sister (note: my brother and dad weren't even that interested in watching it)....I openly admitted to my mom and sister how good looking I thought Mary Lou Retton was.

I guess they knew instinctively that I definitely liked the "muscular" women and if I was out with my sister at the mall or something in jr. high or high school, she would actively point out women with muscular legs walking buy if I hadn't seen them yet!  ....funny note: she still does.  ha ha

For me it sll started when I was 15 years old. I was in art class with the teacher and one other class mates. The teacher could not open a jar and since I was the boy she gave it to me to open it. I could not open it and my class mate pick up the jar and in an instant she open the jar easily. I was in awe at her strength. She said that she was way stronger than me and challenge me to an armwrestle. She beat me up in less than a second. After this she showed me a fitness magazine and said she wanted to have muscles. Sadly she did not get muscular but still she is strong as an ox.

As most of you, it started while watching some tv shows or sports programs. Sure it was just glimpses or a very short exhibition, and most of the times male bodybuilders were on display, but in the end always some girl ended up showing up too. And being brazilian, of course they were wearing from small bikinis and even thongs. It was hard not to get hard  :D And sometimes both man and women performed together, and I found it very sexy, even erotic. Hard for a young boy not to feel the hormones starting to boil  :D

It´s a real shame that even today our tvs (even the sports channels) don´t broadcast any contests...

I remember being in primary school, so around 9 or 10 I think, when I first started realising that I liked the look of muscle in a woman but couldn’t quite put it in words  what it was I liked.

Katie Burnside was two years older than me and she was really sporty, she was on the gymnastics team, and she was excellent at walking on her  hands. She could do a handstand and just walk on her hands for seemingly for as long as she wanted. 20 years later doing CrossFit I came to realise how strong you need to be to do that.

Anyway, we’re in daily school assembly and I’m sat in the middle of the room on the floor, and because she was playing the flute for hymn time, she got to sit up front on a chair and play. She’s not actually playing yet but she must be practising finger positioning or whatever. She’s sleeveless btw. Anyway, another girl goes up to her and just kinda squeezes her upper arm, and silently, they both giggle. Presumably this girl has pointed out to Katie her muscles.

It’s important to remember she was 11 years old and in no way was she some muscle bound mistress, or some hot fitness chick with huge arms or anything. Nor could she beat all the boys up or beat a teacher in arm wrestling. Katie giggled some and flexed her bicep and i didn’t really see anything (there probably wasn’t anything to see), but the point is THAT was the moment for me. It wasn’t so much attraction, but a fascination. I HAD to see her muscles. I didn’t know why at the time, but I knew right then that muscle on a woman was beguiling to me.

A year or two later, Katie had gone to Secondary school and by now I was in the oldest year group. Along the way I had heard rumblings that someone’s mum was a champion weightlifter. This would have been late 80’s in Swindon in the U.K. We all used to live so close to school that we all used to walk, there were very few mums at the school gates most mornings. Every now and again, if it was a school photo day, or sports day, or whatever, we’d have mums chatting at the gate.

I was having a wee one morning and some kid burst in to the bathroom and was all like, “OMG whoever it is’ MUM is here and she’s MASSIVE” and all I can remember is that I couldn’t finish that wee fast enough. I, quite simply, HAD TO, see this woman. I run outside and there she is, walking away. Big 80’s brown hair, jacket, shorts, trainers. All I saw was calves - they were insanely big - and all the other mums were just staring at her either in awe or in disgust and this muscle mum must have sensed that.

So I realised I was fascinated by muscle in a woman, only later with U.K. Gladiators, Chyna, Tori, Luna Vachon, Xena and Atalanta, and also very randomly seeing a film where Cory Everson fights a woman to the death (Cory has her neck broken) that I kinda knew then that I was actually in to muscle. Then the internet happened. I seem to remember Bethany Howlett, Summer Kalish, Marianna Komlos, Vicky Walker Shay and Cindy Huntress being early favourites.

Nowadays... hmm, not sure. Probably Lenka Ferencukova overall.

I remember liking legs that had muscle when I watched ice skaters when ice skating as a kid.  Then I started noticing girls with muscular legs in 7th grade, also if they had butts that stood high and protruded enough to set a glass on.  The face never mattered?  So the girls I liked were easy to date as no one else asked them out.  I specifically remember one girl in my sophomore HS health class who was such a turn on that just standing there talking to her was not easy to do because the erotic impulses she sent through me were just electric.  So I just talked away and and kept clinched fists in my pocket.  Then a Sports Illustrated came out that made fun of an early contest loaded with pictures...well I saw nothing funny about it...I WAS HOOKED.  Plus a book about running by Gayle Olinakova (sp?) came out I saw and it was titillating to say the least.  I then saw Bev Francis in the movie where everyone was stunned by her body...I tried to not like it either, but I realized there was no denying it...her ultra muscular body, with no visible breasts was something that just drove me crazy...since then I have never liked implants.  As the women get more developed I just like that more...its impossible for me to say stop it.  After my divorce, the weirdest thing happened.  I met a woman who, yes, was in several Ms. Olympias in the early 2000's...and we dated until I met my second and final, of course, wife.  She was working as a personal trainer and was randomly assigned to me when I paid for one.  After a a couple work outs with her, she asked me out...surprised me, but I knew it would lead nowhere as she had a long time relationship with a woman too.  It was a month long fling or so and I had some fantasies fulfilled.  She smoked!  I mean cigarettes...weird.  But, no doubt she was on steroids because she had all the signs of using, but I thought she was beautiful.

Like a lot of you I was really young. Mid 90s was my first exposure, this was the back end of the bodybuilding era on ESPN, and I caught snippets of 2 contests on television but nothing more than that. Maybe once or twice I saw a Muscle and Fitness at the store and there was a FBB on the cover, or I would sneak away in the bookstore to flip through a magazine before someone noticed. The next time I really saw anything like that was in 2000 when I saw ads for workout machines in magazines with toned women (nothing more than a nice toned set of abs). This was in the heyday of dial up and right around then I started to sneak downstairs in the middle of the night, afraid the dial up noises would wake up my family in the quiet, and I learned about sites like the early Her Biceps, Mak's Muscle Library, DTV, femsport, Lori Braun's portal site, WPW. That was my first real exposure to the female bodybuilding world,things ranging from athletic women to actually big women and I loved them all.

I don't have any stories growing up sadly. I didn't know many if any muscular girls. There were rumors of a gymnast a year below me who I sometimes caught glimpses of. There were a couple of runners in my 6th grade homeroom who had wonderful calves that I got to see daily but that was right at the beginning of my interest in muscle (and girls). I saw a few flexes over the years. I've been extraordinarily fortunate as an adult with the internet, becoming friendly enough with muscular women that I can pay for unique, custom videos (and sometimes get stuff for free!) and have them sent to my phone. How crazy is that? In 2000 i never would have imagined this could be a reality.

I don't know if bodybuilding will ever be like it was in the late 80s through mid 90s again. If I could change anything I'd shift that whole era forward so that some of those women that were around in WPW would be available in HD. Unfortunately that would mean the current boom in fitness orientation would be delayed, and that's really where I got my start.

Okay this is reaaaaally weird but...my mom was a swimmer back when she was young and was really sporty and buff until I turned 12 and she gave up for some reason.
Her shoulders were really wide and she had huge delts. Even now her upper body is kinda big but it just isn't ripped at all.
I feel disgusted at myself for this but it's the truth.

I already posted about when I started liking muscular women...

Here's my first actual experience that I can remember....

Long but interesting….Early 80’s (First Time seeing and feeling a real female bicep)

My brother and I were in 6th grade when my aunt got married to a guy who was an ex-football lineman.  He was huge and had 2 daughters from a previous marriage.  One was in 5th grade, a year behind me and my brother, and the other was in 7th grade…a year ahead.  Lisa was older, but really thin and a couple inches shorter than me and my brother (took after her real mom), Melony was the younger sister, but a little thick and the same height as me and my brother (took after her dad).

We had fun meeting our new cousins and the next summer we flew from California to Nebraska for a week-long visit.  My brother and I didn’t really connect with Lisa, but we had fun hanging out with Melony the entire week.  She was kind of a tomboy, so we would go fishing at the nearby river, hiking and exploring around.  She had grown a bit more and thinned out a bit, so when we went swimming, my brother and I were both pretty attracted to her and her athletic build.  It was all innocent fun though and she was our new step-cousin, so that was it.

The next summer, my mom asked if my brother and I wanted to visit our cousins in Nebraska again.  We jumped at the chance to go as we both had a bit of a crush on Melony and it was just fun to go somewhere different for a couple weeks anyway.  When we met my aunt and cousins at the airport, I was blown away.  Lisa hadn’t grown at all and was easily 5 inches shorter than Melony who had grown as much as me and my brother plus an inch or two.  She also filled in a bit and had these really muscular legs.  We were all happy and smiling and when I gave Melony a hug, she was easily an inch or so taller and very solid.

We went to their house and my aunt had us throw our luggage in a spare room in their house.  Almost immediately, Melony wanted to show me and my brother something in the basement.  He and I followed her down and there was a really cool model train set up down there.  I immediately ran up to it to check it out.  Melony called to me and said, no, check this out.  My uncle had also set up a universal gym machine and a bunch of dumb bells around the corner.  She began showing me and my brother the equipment and eventually rolled up her two sleeves and gave us a full double biceps pose.  Her muscles bulged and It was the first time I had seen big biceps on a girl.  I instinctively reached out and grabbed one of her arms, I tried to squeeze it but it was rock solid and didn’t budge.  Melony smiled widely and laughed, she was really proud of her muscles.

She was easily bigger and stronger than me and my brother who were both pretty skinny at that age but a year older than her.  She explained how she had been working out for about a year.  The rest of the trip was a blast and I was constantly staring at and asking to feel my step-cousins biceps.  I probably seemed weird but Melony kind of liked me so she constantly showed them off.

The next year, my step cousins had gone to live with their mom instead of their dad and my aunt so I didn’t see Melony again for probably 4 or 5 years.  She hadn’t worked out in years but was still cute in my opinion.  Now at 40 something years old she has 3 kids and is a little plump…but I still love being around her at family functions as we have always had a tight bond.

I do remember watching  a sports program on TV when I was a kid and watching a female strongwoman (possibly in Europe) attempting to lift a small horse with straps and pulleys while standing on some scaffolding over the horse (maybe it was a pony). I was really impressed by her huge muscular legs and overall size. This was pre-pusbescent or early pubescent so I couldn't quite explain or understand my attraction.

The next time I felt this attraction was as a teenager watching the telecast of the Commonwealth Games on TV, where I was not only attracted to the female swimmers and their well developed shoulders, but also the female weightlifters and their strength.

First time was when I was ten years old in 1980, I was at my uncle's house, and, bored and left alone,  I was going through a stash of magazines
in his basement. Poring over some Sports Illustrated magazines, I came across the article "Here She Is, Ms, Well, What?" about the first female
bodybuilding competition in California.

Apparently, when women are going through early adolescence, psychologists believe they go through a phase called "penis envy",
were they obsess over and envy men. Well, upon seeing this article, I went through some definite "muscle envy". I felt so pathetic, so weak,
so powerless in front of this bulky woman, comparing my 10 year old tadpole physique with this musclebound goddess.

But deep down, I must have been excited, because two years later, I came across an issue of WPW at the local Crown Bookstore in
Washington DC, with Suzanne Tigert and her massive thighs on the cover. I couldn't buy it then, I didn't have the money, I knew I had
to come back the next day and get it. I was so excited that I didn't sleep that night. I bought it the next day, brought it home with hands
shaking...

Everything snowballed from there. More magazines, then, a taping of the 1984 Ms Olympia with Mary Roberts, her broad back and cocky smile.
David Lee Roth's "California Girls" video with a surprise appearance by hulking Teagan Clive. Then WPW Videos -- my first one was the mighty
Hannie Van Aken, with her biceps the size of softballs. Then foraging into female bodybuilder artwork, flyers from LH-ART, a comic of Satin Steele
taking on 10 men by herself and beating them! That stuff may have been even more exciting than the women themselves!

Then my first contest in 1994. Watching Skye Ryland's calves in the Roanoake Civic Center parking lot, wondering if I had died and gone to heaven.
Seeing Laura Vukov pump pose for fans in the lobby -- was all of this real?

After that, my first session, followed by first and best session EVER with a contest shape Denise Gerard, going to contest after contest in Florida,
literally every weekend. Then American Gladiators on TV.  And so on.

But its fun to think back to the beginning. To the genesis of my love affair with this weird, eccentric little sport. Reflecting back, the 80s may have been
the best time of all, even though I had never seen a live fbb or had a session before. Because the stuff then was so rare, so precious. You would
obsess month after month over 4-5 pictures of Cathy Palyo in a MuscleMag feature article. Today you can get 10x that stuff on the net in a single day.

My obsession is more mellow now, thankfully, more tempered, more relaxed. Still there, no doubt, but I don't think I will ever recapture the intensity of
those first early years.

I'm a little older than you, but I can relate to everything you're describing. I even remember seeing that magazine article in the dentist's waiting room along with another about strong woman Jan Todd competing in the highland games. But the very first time I ever laid eyes on an image of an FBB was on the Philadelphia local news sometime in the mid to late seventies. A couple of Rachel McLish types were doing an outdoor workout exhibition. I had never seen a woman with a clearly defined biceps vein on top of a knot of muscle before. Hit me like a ton of bricks. Couldn't stop thinking about it. This was probably two or three years before that first wave of competitors started to make national news like that Sports Illustrated article. Nurture vs nature, there's nothing in my background that led me to that realization. As far as I can tell, I was born wired like that.

I'm not quite old enough to appreciate how barren the landscape was pre-internet. I'm old enough that early net use was dial up via AOL cd-roms but WPW was online at that point and they did have ordering capability. I can only imagine what it might have been like to get a VHS like that in the mail. I can be obsessive about some of the things I watch--I've played out plenty of VHS and audio tapes growing up--but having that kind of hard copy might have been a gold mine.

If there was anything I could ever will into existence it's the availability and easy of creation of modern media back then with women such as Christa Bauch or Athena or Hannie or Denise (etc etc) that fit my "muscular needs" in a way that modern bodybuilders don't quite capture. Can you imagine any of those women posing and flexing topless on webcam? Many would have done it, given that so many of them did all those Ray Martin videos. Or a young, in her prime Annie Rivieccio with even more topless media.

I know there's a mystique created by scarcity and rarity of some of the old stuff that I'm still hunting for, but at the same time the ability to choose is enticing.

This is a great point. I would love to see some of the old grainy classics like Denise Hoshor Video in Hawaii or some the WPW videos (like the grainy Debbie Minsky video) brought up to our modern HD standards. FBB videos "remastered" if you will. Maybe in a decade or two we'll have the technology to do it.

Can you imagine any of those women posing and flexing topless on webcam? Many would have done it, given that so many of them did all those Ray Martin videos. Or a young, in her prime Annie Rivieccio with even more topless media.
100% Not to say there aren't a bevy of extraordinary women around today, but we've all got our early favorites like Jan Harrell. Trying to watch them on 320x240 or 640x480 digital conversions is like looking at cave paintings.

so true. there's a big jump in quality in the early WPW days and some of those girls its like watching muscular potatoes move around.

WPW was one of the early sites that had me knowledgeable about the older women. so many great bodies. Kati Rubos, Charla Sedacca, the list goes on

For me in the early 80's. My older brother use to play football and he would buy the muscle magazines to give him ideals for weight lifting. I love those mags cause as a kid my favorite cartoons were He-man & The Masters of The Univese and Thundercats. But something about the women excited me. After awhile I started buying the muscle mags. I wasn't old enough to buy Playboys and the fbbs look sexy in their posing suits. We didn't have cable where I lived so the only time I seen fbbs on t.v was on NBC sports. They use to show the Ms. International and Ms. Olympia. Then American Gladiators came on. When we moved the apartment we stayed had cable. ESPN was a dream for a young man who love Muscular females. Now the internet has become my new pimp when it comes to fit, sexy, and strong women.

Seems like this fetish/lifestyle was instilled within a lot of you from a young age.  For me, I don't think I really was exposed to female muscles until I was 15 or 16 years old.  My first real "exposure" was the episode of the Simpsons where Marge becomes a bodybuilder.  Specifically, I remember watching the scene where she's straddling Homer and forcing him into sex.  She's easily pinning him down and her arm veins were bulging.

I remember that idea of a woman dominating me in bed because she was stronger being so freaky and arousing, and unlike anything I had ever witnessed.  At that age, I was into baseball and football, so I was a pretty big guy (6'3" 195 lbs, muscular/athletic) and my girlfriend was short and skinny.  But whenever we made out or had sex, I began to imagine her growing muscles, and reversing the roles on me; climbing on top, pinning me down, and forcing me to do what she wanted with her strength.

Of course, that fantasy has only further encompassed my tastes.

I was always turned on by female circus acrobats and trapeze artists. There was one act I saw called the 3 eves- 3 swedish blond women.The woman who caught the other 2 or supported them was amazingly muscular- I fantasized about her for years. I saw this picture today and it brought back those memories:

I think it was when i saw a woman beating up a man in a fair fight. The man was really giving it all but he was losing. Its also because of Lucia Rijker, a female boxer. I was very young though and the attraction came years later

The first time I saw women could have muscles was in the time of Martina Navratilova. I did not think she looked pretty good, but I always hoped to see a bicep if she clenched her fist after a winning point. From that moment on, I started paying attention to muscles in women. In daily life, it was mainly the legs that could be muscled. Later I went to buy magazines and then it became the internet. Since then it has always attracted me enormously.

For me it was back in 1997, I was 8 years old and I saw a cover of WPW magazine in a newsstand in Lima, Peru. I was mesmerized by what I saw, my heart started beating fast and also got a stiffy. Since then I've been a fan.
  In 1979 I believe...the first time I ever saw Rachel Mc Lish in a TV guide ad advertizing     exercise equipment.   I cut out the ad and kept it under my bed.

LMAO. Back then, when we didn't have the internet, we all did crazy shit like that.

I remember j**king off to some of the girls in the Sharper Image catalog. That's Moe Szyslak low.

When I was 18 I started going to the gym and knew very little but I was there just about every day. I will date myself and say that it was in the late 70's. This gym was 99% men and there was this older lady who would nod at me every day and I would say hi. One day she asked me if I wanted to train with her and I was both embarrassed and shy but I said yes. Like I expected most guys would look at me with a smirk and after I while it stopped bothering me. She wore sweats and a bandana, not very appealing but would train hard and she taught me everything I know now.  One day she said she would not train but would pose as she was competing soon. I said sure I will train by myself or just watch you. That day came she came from the ladies room in a bikini and heels and all I can say it was wow. She was in such great shape and since then I have been in love with the female bodybuilders and my goa; is to become a trainer of just females as I know they are more dedicated. Long story short ( I know too late) since that day there wasn't a single guy in the gym that wanted to talk to me. All I can say I am glad I met her, may she RIP.

For me it's a little odd.

First my dad took me to the gym with him when I was really young like 10 or something, and there was this woman working out in the a bra and shorts and she a bit of visible muscle. Then on top of that my mom would workout in my room, either on the treadmill or with one of the The Firm videos, and for some reason I always liked it. When I was home alone I would always watch those videos. Then, I got a computer and Google searches turned up some great results like Kim Perez, and Anne Freitas  and the more I searched the more I loved the larger ladies.

I grew up pre-internet, so it was the girls in my school with the best legs, particularly calves. Loved that diamond shape. I was hopelessly awkward and non-athletic myself, so I never said anything to them or anyone else about it. I would just watch for when they wore shorts. When I discovered there were magazines, I started buying them. One of the first ones I got had a full-page spread of Shelley Beattie. ♥♥♥

I'm curious as to when everyone else with a muscle fetish started to look at pictures/videos of muscular women. Personally, I started looking at them when I was fourteen and haven't stopped since.

Honestly not until I was well into my 20's. I guess I discovered that I found female muscle sexy rather late compared to others.

I was in my puberty years in the late ‘80s when bodybuilding was exploding and more mainstream. I was fascinated with female muscle before I knew I liked women. Once puberty and my sex drive hit, that’s when I knew I had a serious attraction to female muscle.

My first exposure to female bodybuilding occurred in 1980 @ the age of 10, when I came across an article in Sports Illustrated about
the first women's bodybuilding contest in California. I guess this is where the seeds were planted. Because 3 years later, as I hit puberty,
I stumbled across a copy of "Women's Physique World" at my local 7-11 (with the gorgeous Suzanne Tigert on the cover). Hands shaking,
I quickly purchased the magazine, then spent that Saturday night gazing lovingly at the goddesses within.

My point is that while my exposure to fbbs started at 10, it was only at 13 that I realized I was madly attracted to them.

Watched, with my parents, a news story about a elementary school girl wrestler who was beating the boys. That was the first part of my attraction.
Then, over the years, caught glimpses of the female bodybuilders as my parents would flip through the tv.
Combine that with the females pictured in He-man and other things (She-hulk).

All that combined started my liking.

It was this exact picture of Janice Ragain that just blew me away. I was 14-15 years old and I found the picture in a magazine, I guess Muscle&Fitness or Flex. After this there was no going back to "regular" women

That had to be in the 80's. Those was the best years of female bodybuilding. Mags like Flex, M&F, and Ironman showed a lot of fbbers.

As a teen, mid 90s, I recall visiting the local drug stores and they'd have the SI swimsuit issue. However, I always caught myselfs looking at Muscle & Fitness, Flex magazine, Ironman, and Muscular Development for the FBBs. I even recall showing a friend and he thought I was weird. when I purchased my first Flex magazine lingerie issue, I was officially hooked. Denise Masino, Renita Harris, and Monica Brant were the top 3 that got me exposed. I would watch Cory Everson and Kiana Tom's workout shows just to see the toned, defined ladies. I must say that period of female bodybuilding was the best
