muscular women, hot or not?
I think they are pretty awesome. If we could see this type of a girl kicking ass in a hollywood action movie as opposed to toothpick looking models, that would be even better

1. Wow! She could chew me up and spit me out.
Edited on Sat Jan-26-08 12:03 AM by Kutjara
And I'd certainly be willing to give her the opportunity.

2. I hope that she doesn't kick my ass for saying so,
but she's a cutie!

One of my good friends is a world-ranked bodybuilder. She was Miss Pittsburgh in '97 and competed in Spain as recently as this past Spring. She's 43, I believe, and she's been training for 25 years.

She's also about as softly spoken and unassuming as anyone I've ever met.

3. Not.
Just a personal preference, but no.

I don't like toothpick models, either, but I prefer the curvaceous look to the ripped and beefy.

4. That doesn't do it for me.
Fit, yes. But not bodybuilders.

5. I was going to ask how muscular, but then the photos appeared
Uh, not. Not, not, not.

But they could totally beat me up for saying that.

6. Overly muscled is not attractive.
In guys or girls.

7. Too muscular.
Some muscle is attractive on women, but I don't find that much muscle attractive at all.

12. upon further research
this girl is actually a host on the reality tv show 'biggest loser', where they take a bunch of grossly overweight people, and have fitness freaks like this girl run them through a workout bootcamp so that they can loose some weight

34. that's all the same woman - in all 3 of your posts, no?
I think she looks pretty good as is, and probably looks great when she's casual and not in workout clothes - like a sweater & jeans.

however, I think if she gets much bigger, she will lose a lot of her femininity.

14. semi-buffed = very hot
too ripped = gross.

15. do you feel the same way about 'ripped' men?
i can see why a muscular woman would be threatening to most guys. when a woman you are dating is much more physically stronger than you, it creates all kinds of social issues and stigma that you have to deal with. it's not fair to either party, but such is life

however if you are a big strong guy, why wouldn't you want to have a relationship with a woman who is your equal, both mentally AND physically?

I love buff chicks :)

18. actually... yes.
Edited on Sat Jan-26-08 12:55 AM by Viva_La_Revolution
anybody who spend that much time on themselves is obviously obsessed. (I know how much time it takes to look like that). I want a guy who's at least as into me as he is into himself. You can't look like that and have any other interests, imo.

If that makes me selfish... oh well. :shrug:

22. by the same token
does anybody who spends too much time trying to excell in those skills that society values automatically become self-centered?

how is bill gates any different from arnold the bodybuilder in that respect?

But not ripped.

I vastly prefer curves to angles. :)

I think volleyball players have the most attractive body type but that's just personal preference.




And x/c skiers, especially winter biathlon:

I like skinny, sure, but not particularly muscled. Not overtly, anyway. Muscles just...don't look....that good to me.

33. she looks pretty good - but, I think it depends on the woman
on some women, it looks good, on others, it does not. She probably looks great in a nice sweater & jeans, though, I bet.

the woman in Skittles' pic just looks grossly masculine

37. I'm not into the toothpick models but
I'm not into these built bodies either. I'm a soft meat kind of guy. I should be able to grab some body parts and expect it to be squishy. Not the feeling of hard muscles or skin and bones.

45. That depends entirely on the woman.
Some people look better with certain features, some don't.

Personally I'm not a fan of veiny over-the-top muscles on anyone. So the woman second pic I don't find particularly attractive.

They are a bit too muscular, but they are a far cry from the doping/roiding female body cuilders who have so much musculature that you can see a well defined pec under their fake breasts. That's just unattractive.

56. Muscles are fine, and reasonably attractive, so long as they don't go into roid territory.
Or drop below about 10% body fat. The super-ripped competition look isn't attractive on men or women.
