Hi guys.
I just would like to read other people's comments on this question.

As far as I can remember I have always felt attracted to muscularity. I recall an ocassion when I was a kid I once saw a bodybuilding competition on TV and it blew my mind.  blush

I have always thought that bodybuilding as the spectacle that it is has inherent erotic overtones. It is not only because it requires the exhibition of the body almost naked and a body that is muscular which because of its nature is a secondary sexual characteristic in men, but also because of the unusually suggestive poses bodybuilders hit to show the muscles. Also, he exertion of physical strength when flexing the muscles might also be another contributing factor.

I have had the chance to talk with a few bodybuilders before and they have mentioned that for many of them the act of exhibiting their bodies on a stage and the audience going crazy for them is very thrilling and it provides them with an erotic feeling that empowers them, it lifts their self-esteem. Some more than others, to varied degrees, depending on the person, enjoy that and/or look for that eroticising feeling that bodybuilding provides them with when competing.

Sometimes the erotic side of bodybuilding is implicit given the nature of this activity, but other times it is explicit. I guess most of us who love muscle have come across a few bodybuilding videos in which bodybuilders give their posing routines an explicitly erotic touch deliberately, sometimes they even flirt with the audience, sometimes they get off stage and flex their muscles right in the face of people in the audience.

In this video you can see how bodybuilders get off stage and flex their muscles in the faces of the judges.

Here another video of a bodybuilder going explicitly erotic.

If analised from this perspective, no wonder why bodybuilding doesn't appeal to most heterosexual men as it appeals to gay men.

What do you guys think?

Yes.  To some people it is completely erotically charged.  I have been to several bodybuilding shows and expos.  Walking around seeing massive built bodybuilders with their pecs hanging out and flexing for fans, I always wonder what other muscle addicted fans are going incognito and attempting to hide their erections.

I like the fantasy of a naked bodybuilding contest... why not show off testosterone-charged muscle masculinity as competitively as possible?
