Introducing (sort of) my first original character (sort of again) Ultraviolet.

Braid CrownI did a re-remorph of Lupus14’s Braid Crown and added color to the black & white piece. I really liked the look and recently revisited that style since it’s a departure from my normal “SAMPLE” morphs. I rarely use male bodybuilders as source material. My issue is maintaining sexy femininity while increasing muscle mass on a bulkier male frame. I’ve been playing around with results that intrigue me and wanted to explore this area more.

I would love to hear your feedback on UV and if this is something you would like to see more of. There is also a more massive alternate version I created for Lupus14. Maybe he’ll share it.

Female Bodybuilder found dead in her Private Sex Dungeon

Koulla Kakoulli
DailyMail: Koulla Kakoulli, 56, known professionally as Mistress Dometria, ran a private 'erotic boudoir' and dungeon for paying clients from her home in Brighton.

 Koulla KakoulliThe mum-of-five was a competitive bodybuilder, regularly competing in international events, and had also appeared on the covers of fetish magazines and in hardcore fetish films.

An inquest in the city heard the 56-year-old used steroids to bulk up for competitions.
Paramedics said her body was too cold to record a temperature and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her inquest heard she was asthmatic and her heart was enlarged. Traces of white powder, believed to be Ketamine, were found under her left nostril. Pathologist Dr Mark Taylor said her cause of death was un-ascertained. 'Bottom line is, there is no definitive cause of death,' he said.

The expert said it was most likely her heart went into a fatal arrhythmia and death would have been very quick. He went on: 'I have done research on body builders who have died. You can say use of unregulated medication is potentially not safe.' He agreed that the use of steroids could have contributed to her death.

Turkey Butt

Gracyanne Barbosa

Every year at Thanksgiving I like to bring out a “turkey” from the vault to share. These are morphs that just didn’t make the grade. This year I present my first and only attempt at a “Butt Morph” starring the Queen of rear-ends herself Gracyanne Barbosa.

While I love a great ass, I believe they look better un-morphed. Happy Thanksgiving.

The World's Youngest Female Bodybuilder...

...And She Started When She Was 10 Months Old.

Prisais Townsend

Via Shared. At only ten months old, Prisais Townsend did her first CrossFit workout after copying her father's routine at the gym. Prisais' father James Townsend, the co-owner of Automo CrossFit in Moorpark, California, said he's proud of his daughter for working out at such a young age, and hopes that her dedication inspires others to do so as well. "Her first workout when she was 10 months and she picked up two and a half pound dumbbell and started doing snatches - [I] never showed her [how]!" he said in an interview with Barcroft TV.

Prisais Townsend"People's reactions to Prisais' videos online are like: 'Wow, oh my god, she's inspiring! Look at her, what am I doing with my life?'"

"It inspires people to be active with their kids. This country is riddled with childhood obesity, you know."

"She is empowering other women because other people, other young girls, other women see the fight and see the determination in her."

Along with her father, Prisais also works out with his clients, such as Maddy Espinoza, who said that she always pushes her to accomplish her goals.

"Her being five-years-old and be able to do what she does, it's impressive and makes you push more because she can do what I can do too," she said. >> Read more here.

Pearl - a female bodybuilding drama

Variety - “Pearl,” premieres on Sept. 1 in the Venice Days section of the Venice Film Festival. The drama, which centers on a female bodybuilder whose past catches up with her, stars Julia Fory, herself a female bodybuilder who has never acted before, and Peter Mullan.

Julia Föry
The director, Elsa Amiel, is up for Venice’s Lion of the Future award for a debut feature. She has previously worked as an assistant director to Bertrand Bonello (“Saint Laurent”), Noemie Lvovsky (“Camille Rewinds”) and Mathieu Amalric (“On Tour”), among others.

In the film, bodybuilding star Lea Pearl is just a few hours from the final of the most important competition of her career when her ex-boyfriend shows up with the 6-year-old son she has not seen in years.

Talking about what drew her to the subject of bodybuilding, Amiel says: “There was a desire to explore the theme of the body in greater depth. How the body is portrayed.”

Her interest was sparked by portraits of female bodybuilders by New York-based photographer Martin Schoeller, which she found intriguing because the women “possess a quality that mixes uncanniness and femininity, while arousing a feeling of malaise mixed with fascination.”

She adds: “What unsettles the spectator is their vulnerability, which is completely unexpected when thinking about this discipline. This new perspective gave me the keys to explore bodybuilding.”

Speaking about working with Mullan, Fory says: “He was always trying to explore the best way to interpret each scene. I guess his approach encouraged all of us on set to keep tapping into that right emotion.” See more at Variety

Inside the Lucrative World of Female Muscle Worship

Female muscle worship

Vice UK: Male "schmoes" provide a livelihood for the muscular women they worship who are now too big to compete in most bodybuilding championships.

"I feel a special frisson with muscular women. The idea of a woman being stronger than me, and the sexual possibilities that that entails, is something I find extremely exciting."

Johnny, 37, is a technical trainer with the British Army. As a conventionally handsome guy in decent physical shape, Johnny is one of many men in the UK who engages in the otherwise unconventional practice of muscle worship. Also known as "sthenolagnia," muscle worship is a sexual paraphilia where a person becomes sexually aroused by touching and "worshipping" the muscles of a more physically dominant partner.

Male worshippers like Johnny are referred to in the muscle worship subculture as "schmoes." The dominant women they adore are their "goddesses." Although most schmoes can be found happily swarming around the fringes of your local bodybuilding show, the erotic pleasure they find in the strength and appearance of hyper-muscular women also motivates them to seek out female bodybuilders for private sessions where they can put those muscles to the test. These sessions can take place anywhere from Airbnb apartments to, on special occasions, the schmoe's own home. For many goddesses, sensual touching and wrestling is as far as it ever goes. For others, sexual intercourse is also an option.

"I've had several sessions," says Johnny. "They work out at about £350 [$453] per hour. Some guys like to engage in serious wrestling matches with the girls, but my own preference is for playful wrestling while encouraging the woman to show off her strength by lifting me and putting me in holds. The vast majority of sessions I've had have ended in full sex. Some girls are known for always providing sex. Others claim not to; but, in my experience, if the chemistry is good in the room, good things invariably follow."

Johnny goes on to explain how a surge of additional "goddesses" have become "available" to him recently, as the direct result of rule changes to the sport of women's bodybuilding.

The International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness has removed the women's heavy-weight category from the biggest global competitions (the Olympia, the Arnold Classic, and the World Championships) and replaced it with Women's Bikini—a weight class designed for lighter, more traditionally "feminine"-looking women. As the larger athletes are being phased out, many find themselves wrestling with men like Johnny to make ends meet. "There's barely any money in it for women," says Wendy McCready, "even when you do turn pro."

'Real Housewives' star Teresa Giudice shows off muscles at bodybuilding competition

Teresa Giudice - Expect to see a totally different Teresa Giudice when you tune into season nine of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Teresa Giudice
The reality star is now a full blown bodybuilder much to the surprise of her fans. She competed in the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships on Saturday, showing off her new physique and toned arms while wearing a glittery purple bikini and Lucite heels.

According to Page Six, a source said the 46-year-old “has been training since December for five or six times per week” and has “drastically” changed her diet.

Giudice’s focus on fitness is a far cry from her previous day-to-day life which cost her 15 months behind bars for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud before being released in 2015.

She doesn’t have any plans to compete in the future for now as “[she] just wanted to challenge herself physically,” but after finishing in third in the 40-plus division, that might change.

On hand to witness her impressive finish in the competition was her brother, Joe Gorga, and trainer, Tara Zito.

As for her husband, Joe Giudice, he’s still serving a 41-month sentence for the same charges.

‘First Lady of Bodybuilding’ Doris Barrilleaux passes away

Doris Barrilleaux

EvolutionofBodybuilding: Sad news today in the bodybuilding industry.
The ‘First Lady of Bodybuilding’ Doris Barrilleaux has passed away (1931-2018).

“Sad day for the bodybuilding world! I just heard that Doris Barrilleaux has passed away. Doris was known as “The First Lady of Bodybuilding”. She put on the first women’s bodybuilding competition in Brandon, Florida in 1979. It was Doris’s efforts that helped to open the door for women to start competing in the bodybuilding industry. It wasn’t long before there were more divisions for women to compete in – fitness, figure, bikini, women’s physique. She was an icon in the sport. I remember Doris on the judging panel as Mr. Teen Florida and have been great friends ever since, my heart is broken Once again to hear this new today, you will be missed! Another great woman and an icon in the sport has passed on but we will always remember her contributions to the sport. I will miss your kisses my friend! Till we meet again pucker up!! RIP” – Eddie Robinson.

Doris Barrilleaux
Doris Barrilleaux strikes a pose after winning her first
bodybuilding competition in the 1970s. Before then, the
competitions for women had been basically beauty contests.
Barrilleaux had been weight training since the 1950s.
Doris Barrilleaux was respected highly by the greats in the sport such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Weider family.

Doris Barrilleaux found the Superior Physique Association (SPA) in 1978, the first women’s bodybuilding organization run for women and by women. She also began publishing the SPA News, a newsletter dedicated exclusively to female bodybuilding. SPA disseminated information to women about contests and proper training and dieting. On April 29, 1979, SPA held Florida’s first official women’s contest in which thirteen women competed. The contest was held in Brandon Florida and promoted by Megas Gym and Doris Barrilleaux.

The winner of the show was Laura Combes. She also began publishing the SPA News, a newsletter dedicated exclusively to female bodybuilding. SPA disseminated information to women about contests and proper training and dieting. On April 29, 1979, SPA held Florida’s first official women’s contest in which thirteen women competed.

Also in 1979, the IFBB formed the IFBB Women’s Committee; Christine Zane was appointed the first chairperson to serve as head of the newly formed committee. One of the significant differences between the SPA and the IFBB was that while the IFBB was organized and run by men, the SPA was run by women and for women.

Morph fools Cindy’s fans

Cindy Landolt morph
I saw this posted recently on Cindy Landolt’s Instagram page and had to laugh. This was one of the original Area Orion breast expansion morphs Cindy had commissioned to see how she would look with a boob job. I’m sure she has no regrets and the post had over 14,000 likes and 500+ comments... not one calling this out as a fake.

Maybe she even forgot this was a morph when she posted it, but you can clearly see the AO watermark. That's high praise.

What’s It Like Being a Female Bodybuilder?

Kristy Hawkins

The Bold Italic - I’ve been photographing female bodybuilders and physique athletes since the 1990s. I always thought these women looked cool, like real-life superheroes (I collected comics as a kid), but it wasn’t until one of my friends at school asked me to shoot her at a bodybuilding show that I really started to pay attention to these strong women.

Carla Rossi
Since that first shoot, I’ve seen the female bodybuilding community grow from a small subgroup that participated in one big bodybuilding contest to a worldwide community of a variety of athletes who compete in different divisions and categories, including bikini, figure, fitness, and physique. Physique is the closest to bodybuilding, but athletes who compete in physique have less extreme levels of muscularity. In both types of competitions, judges look for muscularity, symmetry, and conditioning. Figure competitors are less muscular, as are fitness competitors — both reward shape, balance, conditioning, and poise. As the category name suggests, bikini contestants wear two-piece swimsuits and are judged by balance and shape. Figure, fitness, and bikini athletes usually don’t flex in competitions, but they do perform a series of poses.

Female bodybuilding and physique training is a pretty neat subculture and one that’s often misunderstood. Even liberal, open-minded folks in the Bay Area have preconceived notions of muscular women, and often, they are way off-base. Like anyone who pursues a passion, these women just choose something that many others will never understand but that also takes over their entire lives.

Here are seven Bay Area/Northern California women who compete as bodybuilders, physique, and fitness athletes whom I’ve met and photographed over the years.  >> Read More
