It’s the very end of February – given that it’s leap year, it’s even a bit later – and you’ve probably cast your fitness resolution off by this time. So … Get back to the gym. You’re missing out on a whole lot!
If you’re like many Americans, you made a News Years resolution to improve your fitness and to work out or otherwise exercise more in 2018 than you had previously. Rather than waiting till the middle of February to provide you with some motivation to help you keep at it, I’ve decided to be proactive this year.
This is not a Bikini Interlude. It has a purpose beyond mere prurient pleasure. It’s a discussion – read as lecture; I’m nothing if not pedantic – of- and about any and every woman’s bikini body.
Ladies, Your Bikini Body
Yes, it’s April, so we here in the Northern Hemisphere are approaching bikini season. Hence, we’re soon to be inundated with ads for “quick fix” weight-loss programs / products and with you all fretting about your bodies and bikinis – or really, any bathing suits whatsoever.
Maybe you have a slim, slender, and/or tight body that fits the mold that our society says is suitable for a bikini. If so, break out that bikini and strap your body into it. Few, though not none, will complain.
If you came by that body of yours naturally, luck you. Enjoy it and the pleasure it brings. If you’ve worked hard and stressed yourself out to get it, accept both my congratulations and condolences. You’ve certainly earned the privilege to enjoy yourself.
Maybe your body is toned and muscular. Maybe you’re a true hardbodied babe. If so, you’ve either gotten your body to look like that through hard work, intense body sculpting, or some combination of two. Few, if any of note, are going to complain about you in a bikini. Go out and enjoy yourself and the attention you’re sure to garner.
Or maybe –most likely, probably – you’ve got a curvy, phat, soft body, one that doesn’t meet society’s rather nastily enforced esthetic standards when it comes to wearing a bikini. That’s all good too. Fuck society and the expectations and demands it’s fallen prey to.
If you want to rock that bikini, do so! The haters are always going to find a reason to hate and the rest of us, who are either the increasingly less silent majority or the largest plurality, will either approve or just not care.
Ask Yourself Why, Ladies
Ladies, you should ask yourself why exactly you want to wear a bikini in the first place. Being goal orient is, after all, almost always the best way to go into anything.
If you’re looking for a sexual partner and planning on wearing a bikini to help attract one, then you’re likely to succeed irrespective of whether your body its, tight, hard, or curvy and soft. Men are varied and rarely absolute in our tastes and I’m told that women, if that’s your thing, are even more extreme in this. You’re going to, in all likelihood, get what you’re looking for and have a choice in partners.
On the other hand, if you’re planning on wearing a bikini just for yourself because that’s the bathing suit you want to wear for the purposes of tanning, comfort, or whatever reason, then who cares? In this case, it’s all about you and the attraction for- or approval of others really shouldn’t matter at all.
Ladies, in this case it is your body, your bikini, and your choice. Don’t be afraid of making the wrong choice because there isn’t one.
Given that at the beginning of each new year many of us make various promises to ourselves – resolutions, if you will – to exercise more and, given that by this time our commitment to said resolutions are flagging, many of us need an injection of inspiration if we’re going to get over the hump and keep hitting the gym.
So here, my friends and readers, is some inspiration to help you keep up with your workout regimen. Maybe you need it, maybe you don’t. In either case, I’m sure you’ll find benefit in it. 😛
And no! Lest those who know me and my professed predilections think that I’ve fallen to hypocrisy, I am well aware that these hardbodied babes more than likely merely present a better and healthier set of symptoms of the same mental disease that afflicts the fashion victims. Nor have my taste changed. I still prefer to live dangerously, with women of abundant and voluptuous curves.
Still though, there are many, many roads to beauty and these fine, fit, hardbodies are certainly fit for our lust and, as we all should know, lust is a great motivator and, hence, a great source of inspiration.
Insofar as I can see there are many roads to beauty despite what the fashion and weight-loss industries keep spewing. Yet, are all the possible roads equally valid and successful, or are some doomed to marginalization and fetishization?
A case in point – Muscular women as in women who have toned their bodies and built up significant amounts of muscle, much more than the typical “hardbody” or fitness model.
As one of my wives is fond of saying, “There’s no point in arguing matters of personal taste.” But what is society’s consensus opinion of these women’s beauty and sexiness and its foundation for that opinion?
Will these women expand the concept of female beauty? Will they be considered freaks and unbiddable? Or will they be assigned a set of expected predilections and behaviors, much like women with numerous or prominent tattoos, and be relegated to fetish status?
