It's been very hectic and a little weird in the real world lately.
All in a good way.
Just very much in a way.
I've said before (because it's very true) that all (almost all) women are beautiful.
Obviously there are some who are not so much so, but to me that is about attitude and personality ahead of anything physical.
This said, there are certain examples who do turn my head more than others.
Obviously I need to call out women like Ivy95 and Cassidy Bryce.
More generally though, there are certain physical traits that do give me pause more than some others.
So putting aside the long list of specific beautiful women I could name, who are all shapes and sizes. Slim and curvy. Buxom or not. Blonde or brunette. Long hair or short. Any ethnicity....
I think strong shoulders and a v-shaped back on a woman are awesome. A toned stomach? Yowch! Strong curvy legs and glutes.. Some (not too much) muscle definition!! Wowwwww....
So basically a woman that we'd now describe as a fitness model.
Now let me repeat. Almost all women are gorgeous.
With the exception of European runways models (*way* too skinny) and women who have lifted (and I daresay often taken drugs) to get super massive, not so much.
So no anorexia or looking like men for me.
Leading on, at the risk of dating and aging myself I tell everyone that I remember very clearly the first time I found the Michael Scott agency website online in the early 00's. All of those women were amazing. I did have a few faves and one quite specific fave after that.
This was also around the same time a company called Premier Productions was releasing wrestling videos of female bodybuilders and (again by today's definitions) fitness models.
They are still around - go check them out here at Premier Productions online.
I had one very specific fave among the Premier Production models also. Yes a lot of these matches were topless (not normally so much my thing). Also often the technique was, well, pretty non-existent. She was wont to use a sleeper hold with some frequency though...
So for all of that, over the last few months another OC has entered my mind and this one has made it to naming and bio, and that has even led to a little side story...
Lena was originally a law student, paying her bills clerking at a local firm.
She was always a gym and fitness junkie. She particularly enjoyed lifting weights.
Not a power lifter, not quite. Closer to a bodybuilder.
At one point she did get a bit bigger, but then she decided she didn't like that so she cut back.
So she had the figure of what we now know to be a fitness model.
And because she could she even got herself breast implants.
One day she sees an ad looking for fitness models. Lena has always been outgoing and looking at herself asks the obvious question. Why not me?
Turns out the correct term is why not indeed.
She's going really well and, one day, discovers that she can make a career as a model and personal trainer.
Basically she gets paid for doing her true passion.
Hanging around the fitness model circuit there are a few interesting elements on the periphery. Lena is open minded so she has no problem with women who make a few extra dollars wearing less than a full bikini. So do more than that. Again she's cool.
It's just not for her.
And then one of the other models asks her about wrestling.
"Like in mud or oil?"
No. Legit and it's competitive no less. There's more to be made if she's willing to do it topless but if she wants to try she can wear a one piece suit, just the more revealing the better...
So Lena gives it a go.
And gets her ass kicked in the process...
Well that won't do.
So Lena decides to find a place where she can learn to wrestle, and ends up in a BJJ acadamy.
That was over a decade ago. Lena still goes to the same place for lessons.
Three times a week.
She also runs her own fitness studio and does seriously well as a personal trainer and physio therapist (changed majors obviously).
Her nick name at the first place is "monster".
Between black belt technique, size, and power... Well if she gets you on your back on the mats that nickname makes very clear sense indeed....
Of course Lena ends up in the gym. Watching for a bit she finally makes up her mind.
There is a protocol to these things. It's not a hostile or mean thing. It's just that in a place like this when someone calls out you accept. No hard feelings. Just time to roll.
Lena is still a bit nervous and holding back a bit.
Jessica has her back like that. And before either even break a sweat she's planted face down on the mat and tapping out.
Jessica notices that she's dealing with a power house. Lena got on all fours like nothing and was crawling around. Lena's only mistake was not knowing that Jessica is a power lifter. What that means is that Jessica has leg and back power off the charts, hence the fact she can still stretch out Lena.
Lena has that one now and asks to go again.
This time Jessica gets guard....
Then Jessica gets monstered.
Making the mistake of letting ego in Jessica tries to combat power with power.
By the time she realises what a mistake that was she's gassed and Lena is still going strong.
Lower body back and legs Jessica can go with anyone.
Upper body, no one can out power Lena.
So once Lena gets the arm bar there's only one of two things to happen next.
Jessica pulls her arm out, she is a powerhouse and has even escaped her sister's arm bars that way a few times, or not.
Jessica's arm does feel like it's pulling out.
Of its own shoulder socket.
Time to tap.
Lena asks, "Best of three?"
Jessica answers, "Definitely, but not today. I think my shoulder is twinged."
Lena is genuinely apologetic. She wasn't trying to hurt anyone.
"It's cool. Give me a little while and we'll figure it out."
Hands shaken and no hard feelings...
Or so it seems?
Later Jessica and Jacelyn are hanging by the pool at Marielle's place. Without warning Jessica grabs Jacelyn around the neck.
"What the hell?"
Jessica is actually stewing over the arm bar earlier. She grappled strong and stupid.
Was it just arrogance or, would Lena still take her even if she'd gone smarter?
"I'm in a lousy mood. Just tap and I'll stop."
Jacelyn has gotten to know Jessica pretty well. She decides a tap isn't what's needed.
Jacelyn has already gotten one leg out of place so it's almost easy for her to spin out and get into Jessica's half guard.
And now Jessica is asking, "What are you doing?!?!?"
Jacelyn laughs. "Just tap and I'll stop..."
Jessica doesn't tap. She's not speaking right now either...
Jacelyn doesn't laugh this time. She just brings her mouth down on Jessica's...

My thanks to my muse Iv95 for letting me do these.
Sometimes I'll start creating a new virtual character and, for reasons passing explaining, what starts out as a solid idea that I have to follow through on just kinda peters out.
As is the case here.
I started a new OC, then it just kind of lost traction in my own mind.
In the meantime, responding to motivation coming at me from a different place, I asked Ivy if she would mind being my muse for another series.
The very cool and awesome woman said yes. :)
And somehow my new (not finished OC) seemed to become the logical opponent.
No real story or narrative here.
Just making renders.
