Body Rock

  1. I wanna restore your faith! I still have no idea what “spelunking” is (I know what spelunking for real is), although I have a guess or two, but I’d like to try whatever it is. 😀 Email me? 🙂

  2. Your post reminds me of some of the women we photograph. I’m continually blown away by the fact that more than once I’ve asked someone to lean against a tree or sit down on something other than perfectly manicured lawn during a photoshoot and they’ve refused because there might be bugs or dirt. It’s not the clothing factor either – I had a girl who wouldn’t put her hand on a tree during a shoot for fear an ant might find her way to her. A tree! A Hand!

    Then, similarly to your experience, I’ll have women who will jump at the chance to climb a tree or sit down in mud for the perfect shot if that’s what it takes, and I’ll realize that I’m not alone 🙂

  3. I hate the women who come to spelunking classes and don’t realize that in order to lift the spelunking equipment, they may have to actually flex a muscle. They’ve all been “cardio’d” to death and are afraid of actually having a bicep. And then more experienced spelunkers are forced to carry the weight of their spelunking equipment for them. *grumble*.

  4. I think you should take more note of some of the fantastic women around the spelunking club who are extremely confident about themselves and their bodies, and who do flex a muscle.

  5. Oh I definitely take note of them – they’re inspiring. My post was mostly about the LTS group and what I see filtering through there.

    Unfortunately, while I admire the female spelunkers at the club, they seem to be rare birds compared the population at large.

  6. One pet peeve of mine to add to what you’ve said so far is that a lot of women are afraid to weight train because they think they’ll (oh no!) add bunk to their bodies. What a completely stupid notion. Except for a very small few, most women can’t get that much bigger without going into extreme training (hours every day).

    They don’t realize how good muscle looks on women. It’s really too bad.

  7. I hate women like this. I find them horrifyingly unattractive.

    What i find worse though is men who will instinctively treat all women as if they are incapable of using their bodies or having muscle or capable of doing anything other than standing there looking daft. It gets even worse, in my opinion, when men treat women who DO *NOT* LOOK LIKE BALLERINA FLUFF like this.

    I cannot count the times that men around me have been surprised when i have had to do things like shove them out of the way to pick up 14 year old girls to rush them to the first aid office because they could’t lift 110 lbs, or lifted my end of a railway tie without wavering. It’s surprising to me because i’m a very *solid* looking fat girl, this should be a no brainer.

    That said, women in proper spelunking form are really truely sexy women.

  8. I’m attracted to those kinds of women. Not sure why they get your panties in a knot. They’re not physical people, so what? Honestly, I think those people are stupid for thinking they should try spelunking in the first place. Its obviously not their thing. Hope you’re big enough to handle them with grace.
