There is something I find so hot about non-professional physique women posing - the ones that are in the biz look so bored by it all, but seeing Alexandra Paul flex is... you get the idea :-B

Rachel McLish is also very sexy, and the fact that she is a bit mentally crazy just adds to her eroticism. I liked that scene of her in Pumping Iron 2: The Women, where she hits a shot of Jack Daniels before she goes back onstage. Good times.

Crazy, buff, and egotistical, my dream woman.

I am going to repeat myself to get to 10 lines.
