What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.
A question on sexuality and muscle eroticism
LotusHeart posted:
I've been lifting weights since I was a teenager, I've always enjoyed having a chiseled body, and to be honest, the whole muscle thing carries quite a bit of eroticism with it. The funny thing is, while I enjoy admiring the muscles on my own body, and I also get turned on by seeing muscles on others, both men and women, I am pretty much straight. I am just not into penises and certain parts of the male body just don't do it for me, for example narrow waists and male butts, and while I can get off while looking at a beautiful image of some male muscular body that I wish to look like, I very rarely have any sexual turn ons with men in real life. In fact, I could get off looking at an image of a greek muscle statue, but even the ripped buff dudes don't do anything for me in real life.

But, this is a part of me I've struggled to accept. From reading this board and other resources on the internet. I've come to realize that human sexuality is a continuum, and I've appreciated the honest comments from many on this forum who obviously have found ways to be comfortable with themselves.

The erotic experience at the gym isn't that hard to comprehend, who wouldn't get turned on from looking sexy. And when I was a kid, I used to get coregasms from pull ups, which made the gym a quite enjoyable place to be. I still get them occasionally, and if I am horny enough, going to the gym can still be very erotic, the feeling of the muscle pump is very erotic. Arnold Schwarzenegger talked about the weight lifting orgasm as well so I know I am not alone. Of course, my wife loves the fact that she has a husband with a lovely six pack, so there are definite fringe benefits here.

So I am curious to hear from others. I never hear this ever being talked about anywhere, most likely due to the rampant homophobia out there, yet it's not hard to spot it at most gyms. Pretty much all the guys are laser focused on their bodies. It's often quite amusing to watch the neurotic way about which the average American male deals with this.

Since you put it out there I'll say that I do observe and enjoy both male and female physiques. I was at the gym during my lunch break today for a workout and while making my way through my excersizes I caught sight of a well endowed young lady who was pretty enough to keep your attention doing her routines. Then I noticed on a guy doing curls and he had really nice definition, so I watched him to see what he was doing to learn something but at the same time I couldn't admit I didn't like it.

I am very straight, but I do admire a well built male physique. I like my own and I try to emulate the physiques of men I think are good looking. When you say coregasms are you talking about having an orgasm triggered by muscle tension? I talked about this in the following thread.
