Schmoes In Bodybuilding
Q. What’s your take on the schmoes you see lurking around the various contests?
A. Are these guys gay or something?I stay away from schmoes, and they stay away from me! Just kidding. A schmoe is a guy who’s attracted to female bodybuilders, so he’s not gay. Many of these are guys are socially inadequate, often paying money for companionship, but most just love very strong women taking control of them and have the funds to finance their fantasies. Several top female pros and amateurs cater to the needs of schmoes, ranging from simple posing (both clothed and naked) to kicking their asses and throwing them around the house (no joke). But, of course, there’s also the fantasy wrestling matches, which usually end with the schmoe getting a head scissors–type of lock (they love this). And that’s the tame stuff. It’s well known within the schmoe ranks which female bodybuilders put out for money and which don’t. It’s simple escalation.
What Some Female Bodybuilders Get Up To
When some female bodybuilders can’t make enough money from posing, sponsorships, or prize money, they turn to wrestling. And when that doesn’t pay the bills anymore, some have even become prostitutes. This isn’t always the case, but like gay for pay, many people compromise their values for money, and it happens in all walks of life. Check out the back pages of one of one of our competitors’ magazines and you’ll see it for yourself. There are numerous ads for female bodybuilders who will wrestle and dominate for a set price. And sex doesn’t have to be a part of the equation; many shmoes just love to adore their muscles for hours on end! Go to any top bodybuilding show and hang out in the lobby near the female bodybuilders, and you’ll see them swarming around them like ants near a picnic basket! My first encounter with a schmoe was many years ago at a top bodybuilding contest. I was talking shop with a very muscular female pro bodybuilder who was in all the magazines at the time. All of the sudden she grimaced, tried to hide behind me, and cursed under her breath. Unfortunately, a schmoe had her in his sights and was making a beeline straight for her. I literally did a double take. From top to bottom, this guy looked like one serious creep! Plus, he had one of the largest cameras I’ve ever seen dangling from his neck and was lugging around a large suitcase filled with high-quality photos of all the top amateur and pro women bodybuilders. The schmoe nervously stuttered out an invite for a private photo shoot, but my friend politely declined. We both understood what a “private photo shoot” really meant.
