View Full Version : Female bodybuilding and sex drive
09-15-2006, 12:58 AM
It seems like a lot of female bodybuilders in general - and not even pros, just those who do it recreationally - are a lot more comfortable with their bodies and with actually being seen wearing less, and lots of female lifters have their own picture websites. Since you started bodybuilding, has your sex drive and your comfort in a state of nudity or near-nudity gone up? How much?
I'm asking cuz I've not yet dated any female lifters, so I'm figuring out what to expect.

well i'm probably not considered in the league of a 'female lifter' yet but i have been at the gym for a year and a half and i suppose i do enjoy the mirror a little more and i have even recently ventured to buy some of those tiny shorts haha. but in terms of sex drive... hasn't really changed much for me however sex is a lot easier when you are fitter.
i don't want to generalise about 'women who go to the gym' so im sure it wouldn't be that different from dating anyone else except you may get a new training buddy :D

From your age I am assuming that the girls you date are about the same. IMO comfort with your body comes with a certain maturity (age) I am far more comfortable in my skin at 37 than I was at 21, well it could be comfort but it could also be me not giving a hoot about what other people think.

Depends on each person .. Some are more modest than others.
Myself, I would never be the one to wear anything "skimpy", showing alot of skin,etc. Only because that's how I am. I wear shorts and tank tops sure. But I don't wear half a shirt and a shirt or shorts that my ass hangs out of. I don't go the gym half dressed. To me it's tacky. You can be sexy and attractive without showing the world your half naked body.
I don't think it has anything to do with maturity level either. Some people just like different things, and like showing off their "goods" even if they shouldn't be. lol

sex drive has gone up.....well thats because of my age! I could care less about sex in my 20's......now it's a different story.
Every chick is different...hope you find what you are looking for. :)

I tend to dress rather modestly in public (by some standards, at least). Although I do wear shorts or tank tops quite often, I don't have anything hanging out in public.
However, once I have some privacy, I refuse to wear clothes. I would not be against the idea of public nudity (as far as personal shyness), but I find the more you expose, the more random horndogs will assume you are doing it for their personal viewing (or touching, dammit!!!) pleasure.
That, and I have already encountered several of my students and professional colleagues at the gym... and I don't want to have any awkward moments where my left breast pops out of the sportsbra or my too-tight Daisy Dukes rip when I bend over :D

One of the sexiest ladies on this planet to me is Stevie Nicks. The reason behind that is the way she dresses, sexy, not slutty. There is a certain mystique the "What's under the clothes" to me.
