21 Reasons (#18)

Due to some work commitments and Mr and Mrs Swell's now annual sojourn to the South of France (not the bit that was recently on fire, thankfully), the FMS offices are going to be closed this week, next week and the week after. Nevertheless, as always, we don't want to leave you totally FMS-less, so we've lined up 21 Reasons, one daily picture (or two or three), plus one reason why we love doing what we do, as if we were explaining it to one not so convinced of the glory of the muscular female.

Enjoy!

EXHIBITIONISM

All that hard work might as well be appreciated in full.

#musclesaresexy notes Physique competitor and living proof Gaby Quiros, stating the obvious. She does like to show it off on her Instagram. Quite frankly I am somewhat surprised this one made it past the Instapolice, though I am bloody glad it did!

DANI

imagebam.com

If Dani Reardon didn't exist, perhaps one of the better female muscle fiction writers would have invented her. The high school teen muscle queen who goes on to rise to as close as you can get to the summit of her chosen sport without actually being on it...

imagebam.com imagebam.com
imagebam.com imagebam.com

How far she has come. And, with the exception of the "incident" that led to her being detained by the police back in 2014, she has always been on that rise, both in terms of her professional career, and in terms of her popularity with female muscle fans.

Until now.

I think we are close to seeing the end of her as a competitor, writes one forum poster, obviously better-informed about Dani than I am. She seems to be turning into a bit of a head case and didn't even train much the first half of this year. Sponsors dropped her hand over fist. Her Olympia progress doesn't seem to be on track either. I'm afraid she'll get her ass handed to her this time and she'll slowly fade away afterwards.

imagebam.com

All she's ever known is building muscle and competing. It's the only thing she's ever done. And in the period she's been doing it, she's given me as much pleasure as any other muscle woman. And, more importantly, she remains an inspirational figure to (hundreds of) thousands of women across the world. They're not and I'm not ready to stop cheering for Dani. Not by a long chalk. So I hope he's wrong in his prediction.

I hope the best years for Dani are yet to come.

GUNS & AMMO

They would say they "don't mind a woman with toned arms but she is too much".

Well, judging by the collective excitement there seems to be every time some celebrity lady shows off her "ripped arms", or the too numerous to mention times our own UK TV phone babes get asked to flex for their caller's viewing pleasure, then I'd say that they may think they only like women with "toned" arms, but that it's a short walk from there to here, and a shorter walk from there to here, and before you know it you're here, and before long you (may) find yourself staring down the barrels of Flores' mighty guns...

'COS THIS IS OUR CHAMPION

imagebam.com

Say what you like about the (undeniably impressive) record of Iris Kyle as Ms Olympia, since the Rising Phoenix took over as the world's premier pro FBB contest, cheerleading for the sport has been a lot easier. You'd have to go back to Yaxeni in 2005 to find a champion who knew how to bring so much fiery sex appeal to the stage, FMS wrote in this year's Hot and Hard 100. So fierce and powerful, and yet, so feminine. Exactly how I would like the champ to be. All muscle and all woman.

imagebam.com

And it's not just on stage that Margie brings it, it's pretty much 24/7 as far as I can tell. And nor has she eased up on the muscle sexiness since hanging up her flaming posing suit (temporarily I hope) either. "Ms Melanite" these days, she was, not so long ago, calling herself "The Bringer of Quadgasms". To us? To herself? To both? Each option has its own special level of muscle sexy appeal. I like to think it was the third though.

HER ABS

imagebam.com

So appealing, so aesthetically-pleasing. Evidence of lots of hard training, yes, but also of the discipline it takes to strip away the body fat and reveal them in all their (even better if veiny/ridged) glory. Amateur or Pro; Bikini, Fitness, Figure, Physique or Bodybuilding - if she's got the abs, then you can bet ol' Swell here has got the swoons.

imagebam.com

Abs are also a way in to the mind of the female muscle denier, I reckon. Plenty of non-FBB related forum content on the subject out there: Do you like women with sexy abs? questions (as if there were un-sexy ones!), more often then not qualified with "I'm not talking bulky, bodybuilder abs" or some such nonsense. Start them out gently...

imagebam.com imagebam.com

Anita Herbert, or a Figure phenom like Cydney Gillon, for example. They'll be telling you she's "too much" and right-clicking and saving-as at the same time.

Cute enough for any female muscle hater, you zoom out to reveal... A body of pure muscle, then watch their face as they struggle to compute what they are seeing.

THE JAW THAT PUTS YOUR JAW TO THE FLOOR

I love a conventionally beautiful face on a muscular woman, but having said that, and I know it's a personal preference, the square jawline to me is a woman who's saying "I'm willing to get huge, no matter what the cost", and that is whole different level of sexy and absolutely the biggest turn on. The squarer the jaw, the better!

You can guarantee everyone's heads are turning the moment you enter a room, is just one reason why it's better to be strong than skinny wrote Ashley Fern for Elite Daily back in 2015. It's pretty damn powerful to have a commanding presence.

At the gym, the supermarket, the pool, the beach... in fact EVERYWHERE she goes, EVERYONE is looking at her. And that includes you, my female muscle denying friend. I mean I know you tell yourself you're not attracted to women with muscles and all but if that really is the truth then why can't you stop gawping at her?

THE GREATEST LIE EVER TOLD ABOUT FBBs...

imagebam.com

... is that they lack femininity, that they lack "curves".

imagebam.com

Well, I've spent some quality time with these recent pics of Aleesha, and I have to admit I'm struggling to find a single straight line. Far from lacking curves, FBBs (and OK, Aleesha is an extreme example, but why wouldn't I bring out the biggest gun available to blow this ridiculous myth out of the water once and for all?) are simply the most curvaceous women of all because they have muscles all over. Aleesha, and all her iron sisters, have curves in places where other women don't even have places.

Fact.

PEC MEAT

Don't get me wrong, I am, as regular readers will know, far from an "anti-implant pec purist", but when they are unenhanced, all-worked-for, thick, pumped, striated, bulging, rippling slabs of muscle like Mirea Henriquez's here, I can't resist.

THE (BETTER THAN JAGGER) MOVES

Sadly, I've never been intimate with a full-on muscle woman (though I haven't given up hope Mrs Swell may yet turn to me one day and say "So, what do you think about me doing some steroids?"). However, I have been intimate with a PE teacher, a martial artist, and, best of all, with a (at the time I knew her, former) national level gymnast.

So trust me when I say this kind of flexibility is a very very good thing.

BEING OBSESSED

imagebam.com imagebam.com

There's something very liberating about giving in to your female muscle obsession.

Aside from the mental benefits, it compels you to do things like check out all the competitors at all the shows - even ones where the only class on offer is Figure (well, that's where my obsession has led me anyway). And when you are that obsessed, the Goddess of Female Muscle Love rewards you, by, for example, letting you discover Michelle Pinto in 5th place at the LA (Figure only) Grand Prix last month.

How anyone could look at this woman and not want her is beyond me, but on top of all those muscles and all that beauty, Lauren is an ambitious, inspirational, totally Alpha woman. I'm trying to reach my potential in life, she says. Don't hold me down, don't try to dim my light. I'm out here grinding each & every night. Just know I'm 'bout it, ready for the fight. Don't be afraid to live your dreams and make them a reality.

Did I miss a meeting?

When did we decide this sort of discipline and drive was an unattractive quality?
