    You know the drill, pics should be both athletic AND aesthetic. worksafe images only, and ideally not the Maxim genre.

    I just find it faintly bizarre that on a site which seems rammed with blokes complaining that there are hardly any female mountain bikers out there, you seem hell bent on promoting the sort of soft porn crap that’s likely to alienate a sizeable number of women.

    BWD, just wait until the girls join in…..!

    I have to say, i’m with BWD on this one. I started a ‘would ya’ type thread the other day and was banned within 15 minutes, but this thread is continually cropping up and this one contains pics, whereas mine was just words! I know this A&A thing is allowed in the rules but it seems a bit hypocritical to me! either allow them or ban them all! SIMPLES!

    Quick question?

    Given that women apparently find this sort of thing so off, how come so many of them take cash for posing like it? (The great VP and some of the above quite obviously)

    Look its simple, some men find some women attractive, some women find some men attractive (apparently), try to learn to live with these basic facts of life. You’ll find yourself less stressed generally I think.

    plus one for scruffs comments.

    A&A has always been open to all, that was a key aim. As such, the good ladies of STW regularly pop by to post pics of scantily clad chaps. No one complains about that!

    BWD….were you caught looking at the lurverly ladies and got told off and promised that you would vent some disapproval? Its a bit of light hearted fun, fun which the ladies on this site get involved with too. I’m secure with my hetrosexuality, nothing wrong IMO if the ladies (or men) post pics of males.

    Plus another one for scruffs comments (Scruff…..are you from Atherton?)

    Right, the suns out, more skin is on show, its going to be enjoyable walking round town at lunchtime looking at the female form, somemthing I’m sure the ladies do too with males, it is only natural afterall.

    I just happen to have a different viewpoint from you. It’s nothing to do with my sexual preferences, but everything to do with morality and the way this forum treats women. You seem to find that hard to understand. Why do you think so few women use STW?

    which seems rammed with blokes complaining that there are hardly any female mountain bikers out there

    I read this site far too much and while people reel out this point of view often, I dont think I’ve ever read a post from anyone saying words to the effect of “Its aweful, there are hardly any female mountain bikers”. Not suggesting people dont WANT female mountain bikers, but I’ve never read any complaining about a lack of them. The reason so few women use STW is likely to be the percentage of female MTBers there are in relation to male, that do MTBing as anything more than a bit of exercise. Women who obsess over bikes and want to talk about them all day are few and far between 😀

    And, FYI, the thread is open to both sexes, always has been.

    It’s about proportional to the number you see out on trails or at races.

    But think how tight and frustrated the little dears would get without their weekly dose of pron-lite………

    ….if the thread would stay within remit then it’s not too bad, but it took what, 4 posts, to revert to the usual spaff-a-thon 🙄

    cos its full of opinionated knobs.

    I see what you mean, however most of the women put off will have unrealistic expectations of malekind and probably not be all that much fun 🙁

    the thread would stay within remit then it’s not too bad

    I’m not sure the remit was breached in any way. They’re all images of athletes. In photos they have happily posed for, they are therefore happy to portray themselves as attractive as well as athletic. Thats surely fine, be they male or female? There’s nothing wrong with admiring the looks of people with an athletic, healthy, attractive figure – if anyone suggests there is I think their reasoning is questionable. The reason it’s not allowed on any old post is that it’s nice to keep the site reasonably family friendly and some people can’t control their posts and responses. Too much of anything is a bad thing.

    so what would happen if this thread was started on any other day to the stipulated-in-the-rules friday? surely it should be removed? and the poster banned?!

    BWD, it’s a predominantly male activity……although I wish it wasn’t. Was at Llandegla at the weekend for a couple of hours – I thought it was a male only day! IMO the input from females on STW is proportionate to female riders out there. There’s normally encouragement on STW for the ladies to get involved. Females not treated badly IMO on this site as you implied, quite a bit of lighthearted banter/flirting when they do.

    Everyone has different morals and I understand where you’re coming from but dont agree in the slightest. If it was morally wrong and treated women unfairly then I’m pretty sure they (females) wouldn’t get involved at all?

    Are no females going to get involved in this one??

    Mrsflash, you have not offended me or treated me unfairly with your posting of a rippling male torso, I just hope you can say the same about the males on here? Light hearted fun on a friday, bring it on!

    Why all the soft porn dudes? Is this why there aren’t many women on STW?

    Well I’m offended!

    Its undermining my pasty, flatulent, overweight, middle aged personna, and I distinctly feel anorexic as a result of this stereotypical view of men as sex objects

    SiB I’m a reasonably regular contributor to the A&A thread. Doesn’t offend me in the slightest. I mostly just get jealous cos all the ladies are prettier than me and better at sports.
