What got you started?
« on: August 16, 2018, 09:37:41 pm »
Do you have a crystallizing memory of the first time you figured out - wow I really appreciate female muscle?  Mine was seeing Tanya Knight on American Gladiators.  I was watching her while everyone else was enjoying the contest

Crystallizing memory is a good way to say it. For me it was early days of web surfing using dial up, maybe 1997. I had seen pics and shows on TV with female bodybuilders
previously, but this day was different. Went to a site, believe it was a college student personal website. Had pics of various things guys enjoy, cars, sports, and women.
After taking ten minutes or so for all the images to load, there were pics of female bodybuilders. There were two or three images of Becky Rampey. My jaw hit the floor
when I saw her, and I knew right then and there that was a game changing moment in my life. This was before google and not even certain I knew much about searching back then.
Am really glad I stumbled upon that website, and I've never looked back.

I can almost pinpoint it - the 1988 Women's World Bodybuilding Championship from Nice.
It was a real Who's Who - speaking of Tanya Knight, it had her, Janice Ragain, Marjo Selin, Dominique Darde, and a lot of other great ones.

Two things.  One was a penthouse with a curiously muscular model which led me to check out a female bodybuilding contest on ESPN and saw Krista Anderson who looked very much like Farrah Faucet who was on my wall. She was Farrah with muscle and I remember coming instantly to attention.  That was it for me. I had to have muscle after that.  I remember Becky Rampey - man she was hot too.

No I don't remember, because it was so long ago...

I just went to the gym... And saw her... It was a pretty muscular girl about 30yo.. After this I feel a craving for such girls because i think it's more beautiful than non sporty

For me it was a couple things. I was in high school, and my school's gymnastics team trained at the gym and I would just seat and watch the girls perform their exercises. But, there was a special one. She was older than the rest - probably 18 and had the typical pro gymnast physique, short and lean but very muscular. Just watching her doing handstand pushups... did I mention she was quite cute as well? Well, that was my first tantalizing moment.
The second one, the definitive, was "Getting Physical", the 1984 made-for-tv movie featuring Alexandra Paul and many of that era's best fbbs.
I made a betamax copy of that and kept it dear to my heart for years. The rest is history.

1979 - I was 13 years old and Laura Combes appeared on "Real People"... wow!  Though it would be a few more years until puberty struck, the seed was sown here.

Certainly American Gladiators, the first run of it. I think it was re-runs when I caught it though.
