A few years ago a bodybuilder wore a tiny posing suit at a competition for me. He competes in the super heavyweight category. I still have the pics of that show. It wasn't really a problem for him because he used to be a stripper and he had already posed provocatively on stage in the past. Bodybuilding is really ambiguous on stage. You always see some bodybuilders pushing the boundaries and playing around with homoerotic appeal and like all men seem fascinated by all that spectacle.

Something no one seems to be very aware of (probably because it's kept deliberately hush) is that a lot of bodybuilders use cockrings so their bulge is better on stage. Like a stripper who gets hard then ties off and has an erect-sized but floppy dick, they look like they have bigger bulges by doing this.

Oh I don't know R41. could it be something to do with being MEN and wanting to show off as much as possible and enhance every possible aspect of their physique? Just because they are not being judged on that particular body part, does not mean they don't want to make it look as good as possible while wearing as little as possible.

Fuck me, you guys are hard fucking work. Do you never just accept what someone with direct experience of something tells you? Must make life exhausting.

I have competed in bodybuilding shows for ten years and I have never seen a bodybuilder put on a cockring before he slides a posing suit up his legs. It may happen. You try not to look at someone’s junk when backstage. Some of these guys are prickly. (Pardon the pun.).

No bodybuilder wants you to believe he lacks for anything anatomically. Putting on a cockring would be embarrassing.

No, r54. I have never heard of such parties, at the shows or at the gym. A secret like that wouldn’t last very long, we all know each other over time. The moment you step off the show stage, you are exhausted. All you think about is food or sleep. You’re done for the night. You might be done for the next several days, as you have invested yourself entirely in two or more intense weeks. You have piqued my curiosity. Where do these parties you know of exist? Who are the typical participants? Are wives or girlfriends or boyfriends invited? Has anyone been outed (professionally) after attending one? The whole idea is is a foreign concept to me.

A bodybuilder from Dubai once told me he fucked a teen girl after a bodybilding show in Dubai. He told it like the most natural thing. He said the girl kept staring at him ith lust as he posed and flexed and then he managed to take her to a hotel and you know the rest. I don't know if I can believe him but at the same time everybody knows Dubai is filled with sex and prostitution.

Apparently, not all bodybuilders feel exhausted and sexless during competitions...

Bodybuilding is a sport, R87. Do you know how much work it takes to gain muscle, flexibility, cardiovascular stamina and strength to reach a competitive level in the sport? It's hours of training daily, along with a careful consideration of your diet. You are not born with the ability to get up there on stage and wow the judges. It requires great physical challenge. You are being judged on the same physical criteria all other bodybuilders are. You must be better than they are. You earn the title, the prize, and the trophy.

Rico lives in Germany. I've always thought Germans were much more tolerant than other Europeans, especially after reunification. There were nude bodybuilding contests in East Germany, some held outdoors and sponsored by the FKK. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freik%C3%B6rperkultur) I don't think any gay man in East Germany could safely project his sexuality.

Rico would have ample opportunity to show it all off if he wanted, and no German would raise an eyebrow.

by Anonymousreply 8903/26/2019

Ordinary Germans seem to be tolerant, but bodybuilding harbors a number of sexually insecure men everywhere in the world. Now, a few years ago a delegation of German bodybuilders on behalf of FIBO went out to support a gay pride event for all the support bodybuilding has received from gay men hours previous to a bodybuilding contest. There was a video on YT of that but it was deleted.

Rico can't pick and choose his audience. He's well-hung. He knows it. He chooses not to wear posing suits which can contain the goods in a much less obvious way, perhaps turning his cock to the side, upward and right or left. Endowed men have been hiding their cocks behind pants pockets for years. Some even got a Prince Albert for the original reasons.

If you dangle it in front and perhaps it is heaving, you are going to get curious (or longing) looks, no matter the gender. Free yourself, Rico! Take advantage of a permissive society and let it loose without regard. Just be sure to wear sunblock everywhere. Saturate your pubes with it, as well. (I've been there, done that...)

Does it really need to be said that bodybuilding is not a sport? Bodybuilding is a beauty contest. Who wins is decded by the subjective opinions of a table of judges based on bodybilders' look. Flexing does not play any relevant role in the contest; it does not decide any results. Also, dehydration and lack of body fat drain their energy, they are at their weakest on stage compared to actual athletes who are at their strongest condition because the result depends on athletisism. R88

And I know what it takes to gain muscle and that is not necessrly excessive weight; instead you need repetitive exercises until you cause microtears on your muscle fibres. Sure, bodybuilders are strong but not exceptionally strong for their size. They train for size; not strength.

by Anonymousreply 9804/01/2019

Are you kidding, R98? Ask any competitive bodybuilder if flexing has no relevant role in the judging and does not decide any results. Do you know what a posedown is? Ask any bodybuilding judge if they are judging a bodybuilder's looks, not his musculature?

Do you know what strength training is? Powerlifting?

I suggest you spend significant time in the gym, if not to work out yourself, to interview some bodybuilders about their intentions and about bodybuilding competitions. It would be very informative to you.

Flexing decides no result and is irrelevant. Even more, judges are a joke. Anybody can be a judge; you, me, the lady next door.

There were bodybuilders and others in the gym culture/community who responded here to comments about why they bodybuild. Even though they may have been competing for decades, there are some here who believe they know more than the bodybuilders do. Those people insist the only reason there are bodybuilding competitions is to show off dick in the posing suits. They assert flexing has no influence on the judges. I can tolerate ignorant people. I cannot tolerate people who insist they are right even when evidence to the contrary is presented.

I think there are people who believe in their own heads bodybuilders are only seeking sexual pleasure. Unfortunately, they believe everyone else needs to conform to those beliefs.

I think some people suffer from cognitive difficulties and cannot grasp the whole picture. If someone says "I love pop music" doesn't mean that person doesn't like other music genres; it means pop music moves him/her much more thanq other music genres. Understand where I'm going?

Everybody who works out to build a muscular body certainly has sex in mind. It doesn't mean sex is the only thing that motivates them to bodybuild; it means it is a common factor among men who bodybuild. Whether you are willing to admit it or not bodybuilding is a sexually charged sphere. Everything revolves around bodies, it's bound to be sexualised field.

I recall an ex-bodybuilder female who once wrote on her blog board about why she left bodybuilding and embraced fitness. She said the bodybuilding industry is "oversexual", very sexual environment and logically so because it is all about beautiful bodies.

Is it possible a certain percentage of bodybuilders like to pose nude? Yes. Would they do it on a family stage? Would they press you to get a hard-on within a few rows of their family?

It isn't just bodybuilders who don't mind getting naked. How many nude selfies are out there? What percentage of men have shared one? Is the percentage of bodybuilders who want you to think about their cocks higher than men at large? It's a dissertation topic. Individual conclusions don't get to the heart of the matter. It requires a case study.

I'm sure there are bodybuilders who lift weights to test the limits of their body, and nothing else. I'm sure there are bodybuilding spectators who pay admission to get to see a man's body almost in full, hoping the bodybuilder will flex so his cock is just about bursting out of the suit, fueling the bodybuilder's dreams.

They aren't concurrent. We'll never know what the right answer is.

I think nude bodybuilding shows would be a wonderful idea. If the guys want to show it all, a likely idea since they are motivated by sexual pleasure, why force them to hold out? Conditions would have to be laid out, no one under 18, no cameras. If a local auditorium cannot be located to host the show, try the largest nightclubs. I think every large metropolitan area can draw enough competitors to make the show worthwhile.

I like the idea of not removing body hair. I consider a man with a full bush very sexy. It's emasculating forcing him to remove it.

A bodybuilder doesn't need to go fully naked to get sex. Don't you know anything about secondary sex traits?

Claiming that building a muscular body has nothing to do with attractiveness/sex is really ridiculous. Bodybuilding is the male version of Miss Universe. Actually, bodybuilding has Mister Universe and both contest reward ideal body beauty: for women is delicate features; for men is strong features.

Of course it is. Bodybuilding has held the same fascination that it has always had ever since Grecian times.

I think his name is Johnny Titus, R170. Really hunky back in the 70s.

Yes, I just googled his pictures. Thanks, R172.

If muscles weren't sexy, do you think there would be bodybuilding contests? I'm afrain there wouldn't.

From an interview with well-known bodybuilding photographer Bill Dobbins:

[ Q ] What are you feelings about female bodybuilders who pose nude? Is it good or bad for the industry?

Actually, it's a shame that we live in a culture where ALL bodybuilders don't pose in the nude. I've done some nudes of male bodybuilders as well as female and you'd be surprised how much bigger and more aesthetic they look when you don't have the line of the posing trunks cutting across their hips.

But given the culture we do live in (the US more than Europe, which tends to be less puritan) it is important to distinguish between nudity and nakedness, that is between the figure study and a depiction of the body intended to be erotic in nature. A famous art historian once wrote that the true artistic nude is not sexual in nature, but that any representation of a beautiful body is going to have a sensual element.

In my case, the nudes I do are usually the least sexy of my photographs. I approach nudes, especially BW photos, almost as if I were shooting landscapes. I'm interested in all the details, the undulations, the way one muscle sweeps into another.

Nudity wasn't considered sexual until certain social groups pressured people into considering nudity sexual (and shameful). A man's body should be celebrated for its beauty in its natural state. Bodybuilders help us do that. When people attach sex to nudity, with the expectation we all agree with them, they put us in a bad spot. Sexuality may be in the individual mind, but these individuals cannot claim it prevails for the rest of us, bodybuilders included.

Would I pose nude in a bodybuilding contest? If everyone there attached no sexual thought to my bare buttocks, my penis, testicles and pubic hair, yes I would. If it was acknowledged I, like all men, have these anatomic parts, I would have no reason not to. If people are getting horny by looking at my naked body, that would make me uncomfortable. And it may make other people uncomfortable. I wouldn't wish this on any bodybuilder or audience member.

I have a friend who would like to compete in a show, but his penis is exceptionally large. He cannot stuff it into a contemporary posing suit. He would have to a special one made, and of course, that would attract attention. He doesn't feel confident that people will appreciate his muscle while he is onstage. It's too bad, he has one of the strongest and most aesthetic bodies I have ever seen.

For those of you adding those sexual thoughts to this, I have to tell you he is my friend, not my sex partner. Sorry to burst your bubble.

If nudity is not sexual; if the flaunting of and fascination with enhanced secondary sex traits (bodybuilding and its contests) is not sexual then honestly why do you want to see bodybuilders fully nude showing off their enhanced secondary sex traits? Why does the covering of the penis frustrates you if not because you want to be sexually stimulated by a fully naked body with ideal sexual qualities?

by Anonymousreply 179Last Saturday at 5:51 PM

The sexuality is in your own mind, R179. I don't consider my genitals sexy; they just happen to be there. If I can be naked in front of a doctor, a nurse, an artist, an airline security scanner, an athletic team without considering it sexual, I can also perform in front of people naked or view naked people without a single sexual thought. You have recognized your own sexual bias in your own mind, don't expect me to have it in mine.

by Anonymousreply 180Last Saturday at 6:53 PM

You don't get naked in front of a doctor so he can admire your body but to examine you. This is not the case with bodybuilding. Bad and diceptive analogy. Really dishonest R180

Several years ago I went to a nude beach, Haulover Beach in Florida, for the first time. I dropped my shorts so I could feel the sun on my body. I did not entertain the idea anyone would look at my naked body; they were all naked, too. I didn't get stimulated by the naked men around me. I was there for the experience. At one point I ended up walking down the stretch of beach totally naked and carried not a single one of my possessions. It was exhilarating, not sexual, I was at one with nature. I learned a few things. I needed to put more sunblock on my cock and balls. Especially into my pubic hair, the sun still aims right through them. I needed to bring money so I could buy a snack or extra water from truck vendors parked right in the sand. I needed a boogie board.

A week after I came back to work, one of my co-workers told me he had to show me something. I looked at his computer and saw a picture of myself on that beach, full-frontal. (Guess how he spent his time on tumblr...) He said it would be awful if the boss found out. I asked him why. "You're buck-assed naked." he said. I stared at him and replied "So?". "What if everyone at work finds out?" "Why is it a big deal?" "Because you're showing cock." I had a feeling the photo was going to be shared with everyone else in the company. My reaction, "So what? If people around here can't just accept I have the anatomy, I'll go work elsewhere." He didn't spread it around; he probably realized he didn't have anything over me.

Lessons: There are people who look at your cock on the beach. There are people who will take pictures of it. There are people who go to nude beaches for the entertainment value. For some, it's fucking sexual in their eyes. I don't need to acknowledge them. There are people, like me, who aren't going to be stopped from going back. I don't think of it as sexual. To me, I just wasn't wearing clothes. I remember the feeling of the sun and the friendliness of the other naked people around me. Trust me, many people at a nude beach aren't in top shape, and that's OK. The others who are, good for them.

I'm going back this summer. I want some friends to come with me. It was a great experience.

It seems there are four schools of thought here:

1) A spectator believes there are sexual elements associated with the building/exhibition of muscle. A bodybuilder agrees.

2) A spectator believes there are sexual elements associated with the building/exhibition of muscle. A bodybuilder does not agree.

3) A spectator believes there are no sexual elements associated with the building/exhibition of muscle. A bodybuilder does not agree.

4) A spectator believes there are no sexual elements associated with the building/exhibition of muscle. A bodybuilder agrees.

Given many spectators are not familiar with gym culture, and many bodybuilders don't ask spectators what they see when the bodybuilders are onstage, it is impossible to assume one person feels what the other person feels. No one has the right to say his opinion is fact. That's what this thread has evolved to.

It would be great if someone can point us to the academic research on the field. We could see how our thoughts meld with it. Otherwise it's a hypothesis we are challenged to prove or disprove.

I'm sorry, I'm reading dissertation submissions right now. I'm in that mindset. Have they proved or disproved their hypotheses? It's not up to me to agree or disagree with their findings. I need to ascertain if the research they've done can support their hypothesis.

Those who deny the sexual aspect of muscularity are being dishonest. Why do men bodybuild? Because they want to look sexy. Do we really need to play fools here?

You want to be strong and don't care about sex appeal? Do weightlifting.

I was surprised a few months ago a top bodybuilder, a legend today, like a butt pic I uploaded on my IG. Seemingly heterosexual hence my surprise.

A very creative way to stretch out your lower abs and groin before you contract them, R192. I’ll give you sexy, but it definitely had a dual purpose if that was the goal.
