So basically what i am saying is, the woman is dealt a harsh blow in life and that is not enough. Don't people grow up? or better yet didn't you learn that if you have nothing nice to say about someone then maybe you shouldn't say anything.
This sort of behaviour or "bullying" should be left to adolescent kids who don't know better.

Imagine anyone new to the site who read these comments. Imagine they come here for inspiration and were willing to post progress photos but now may have second thoughts for fear of copping harsh critisism.
I do not care what she looks like, nor do most people here.

Lauren's made Female Bodybuilding look like a freak show to many people outside of this industry as she's always in some documentary making shit up or talking about sessions. She's a self promoter extraordinaire! So in fact I believe she is hurting people.

Saddens me too, but everyone is going around the real topic, which is how much Pro bodybuilders make from bodybuilding. I don't think there is any other sport where top pro athletes in the sport have to do anything other than compete to make a comfortable living. The prize money they get from some of these shows should be what they get for just an appearance fee.

I don't get the comments. Are you for or against legalization? If her job were legal, the prostitute on welfare wouldn't be on welfare, she'd be collecting unemployment or long-term disability from the program that SHE paid into and perhaps she'd have some extended healthcare coverage helping offset medical bills. Plus she'd likely not contract aids in the first place because she, her coworkers, and the johns would be subject to mandatory STD tests/screening.

Who pays the johns' medical bills right now, BTW?

Are the ladies giving it up for free regularly at your average nightclub also skanks? How many of them are on welfare, and, if so, do you feel the same way about paying their medical bills when they contract an STD?
Great reply! Great point about the johns too. You would figure that if prostitution became a legal trade, there would be some of the same precautions in place that most adult film stars have to agree to in order to keep working.

I certainly don't want to pay the skanks medical bills.
It's a good thing you're pretty.

In Mexico prostitution is legalized and it's kept in certain areas only. They pay to keep their license up to date and have regular check ups against STDs.

There will always be prostitution whether we like it or not so why not make it legal and have them pay taxes like everybody else?

People pass on AIDS even if they're not in the prostitution field... you can even get AIDS or STDs with a one night stand that you picked up at a night club... how is that different than prostitution? If a person wants to pay for it then let them have it. Getting it for free doesn't make it safer.

That is the lamest excuse in the book. Any person who goes iinto BBing and expects to make a living is foolish. justifying the lack of money made as an excuse to do sessions or turn tricks just puts a bad name of FBB.

FBB has been too connected to men's fetishes for too long



(and I didn't say all men are this way, so no hate PM's from you guy's thinking I am talking about you!)

You're not pretty like that other one, so you need to smarten up. You obviously know very little about the world of sports, in general.

How many professional rowers, archers, or even softball players do you know? You probably cannot even name 10 professional swimmers or women golfers. In the U.S., highly-ranked professionals in *several* sports have 'real jobs', which help them to pay the high costs of competing and preparing to compete.

The decision-makers in the competitive side of bodybuilding have a fetish for making money.

So everyone should stop competing because you don't like the connection? Everyone (almost) has a price, though, as I'm sure you are aware.

Your ass, your rules.

But another woman's ass? Her rules.

professional rowing, professional arching, professional softball, professional swimming are pro sports in name only!

By definition a professional sport is one in which the athletes can make a living by doing only the sport.

In every "professional" sport the athletes are paid to participate win or lose, the winning prize money is only extra incentive to work harder.

As a professional athlete being an athlete IS your "real job".

The thought of being able to make a living off a "profession" should not be foolish one. Thats what people do in every "profession".

Maybe some professions, but expecting to make a living competing in professional bodybuilding competitions is foolish.

Professional sports, as opposed to amateur sports, are sports in which athletes receive payment for their performance. Your statements above are rediculous. Especially the one that you state an incorrect definition.

Word. I talk more people (especially women) out of attempting to be competitive bbers then I ever talked them into it. Do it for the love of the sport if you enjoy it, but expect to struggle constantly if you don't have a profession of some kind being related or unrelated to the sport to pay your bills.

End of the day, it's moot. The issue is, can a pro athlete make a living directly from competing in their respective sport? That's what matters when the bills are due. Some sports you can, some you can't. Many sports the $$$ is in the sponsorships vs prize winnings. Some it's both, some it's none, or damn close to none once you factor in the cost (both $$$ and "other") of getting ready for it, and so forth.

So, when the bill are due, can most pro bbers, especially women, pay them as a result of competing as a pro? The answer is no in the vast majority of cases.

Most of the pros I know, male and female, pay their bills as private trainers, with some of course having other various professions, some "on the level" and some, not so much.
