The Female Body

The billboards for 24 hour Fitness Club features a photo of a blonde who is extremely fit. She's sitting on a Pilates ball and one can see fitness exuding from her. Oddly enough, I was not that attracted to her image. I began to worry about my sexuality because usually, if it is the female form, I am like Achilles to a stick thrown into the mountains.

The SO ever intelligent as always pointed out that the image of a fit woman is the image of man: broad shoulders, small hips, well-developed muscles and a lack of fat. MY GOD! She is right! That is why I was not attracted to the picture of the woman. She looks like a MAN!

And let's not even get to the homoerotic meanings of the billboard from 24 Hour Fitness!
