The convention miscalled modesty has no standard, and cannot have one, because it is opposed to nature and reason, and is therefore an artificiality and subject to anybody’s whim – Mark Twain
We feature no nudity and never will.
We have a cast of wonderful girls who are very awesome people in real life and on camera. We feature real, competitive action where the ladies go at it with everything they have. The girls dress sexy. Just like the girls you see on the WWE, or the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, or even models you see around the world who pose in little bikinis for a countless number of magazines or photographers on a daily basis.
We understand that sexy sells and we embrace it.
We have heard a few times that we do is akin to “Soft Core Porn”.
Description of what “Soft Core Porn” is on Wikipedia:
Softcore pornography is pornographic or erotic film or photograph that is less sexually explicit than hardcore pornography. Softcore pornography is intended to arouse men and women and typically contains nude and semi-nude performers engaging in casual social nudity. The visual representation of genitalia (full nudity) is common in printed media, and increasingly so in film and television. Softcore pornography also typically contains depictions of sexual activity, such as sexual intercourse or masturbation. The sexual activity is typically simulated. Softcore pornography typically does not contain explicit depictions of vaginal or anal penetration, cunnilingus, fellatio and ejaculation.
As you can see, soft core porn involves nudity. It also often involves sexual activity. It can involve a man and woman, a woman and a woman, or a man and a man. Nothing on this website remotely resembles soft core porn and this is a claim that has absolutely no basis in reality.
I have also heard a claim repeated a few times that the ladies who choose to do this have no self respect. It seems to be an argument easily disassembled.
Definitions of Self Respect:
– A proper respect for one’s self as a human being
– A personal regard for one’s own standing or life position
The majority of our ladies not only have plenty of self-respect, but love doing this.
Some people claim what we do is a fetish. It’s a bit of a double edged sword on that subject really. We have a whole lot of fans who watch because of the actual sport of what we do. It’s real female wrestling. We don’t know where the story will go. This is very exciting from an entertainment standpoint.
However, you will find that thousands upon thousands of individuals all over the globe, heterosexual and gay alike, have intense fetishes involving different aspects of wrestling.
This is to be expected as wrestling elicits different reactions in different people depending on their own inborn personality. For some, it is competitive, the will to win shines out. For some, it’s sexual.
But, when two ladies wrestle on our mat, nobody is thinking about sex when are filming it. Far from it. The action is intense, very real, and the ladies are fighting with all they have out there in most cases.
Our main concern is always keeping it as safe as possible and ensuring nobody gets hurt.
Another negative claim thrown at us by a small few is that what the ladies do is “degrading” to women.
Definition of Degrading:
– To lower in dignity or estimation; bring into contempt.
– To lower in character or quality; debase, humiliate.
– To reduce (someone) to a lower rank, degree, etc.; deprive of office, rank, status, or title, especially as a punishment.
Something incredibly subjective like the term “degrading” is not a nationwide or social decision. It is a decision that can only be in the eye of each individual beholder.
What one person finds “degrading”another one finds exciting and wonderful.
A more persuasive argument that has attempted to be made is that the ladies future opportunities, job opportunities, or life opportunities, will be negatively impacted by being associated with a long term, ongoing female wrestling story that features no nudity whatsoever.
Let us consider what we could call “The Ceiling” for something like this.
Torrie currently has over 100,000 fans on Facebook. Stacy has over 100,000 fans as well. These two ladies wore outfits WAY more revealing than the vast majority of our ladies at the Female Wrestling Channel have ever wore from Day 1.
Torrie even engaged in a brief lesbian angle on screen with Dawn Marie in one of the WWE’s storylines. I remember Stacy being involved in similarly racy angles in her time at WCW and at the WWE.
Torrie Wilson has dated Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees. He is one of the most desirable and wealthiest men in America. Stacy Keibler has dated another famous guy you might have heard of. His name is George Clooney. One of the most well known and best looking actors of this past century.
Take a look at this picture below.
Is that president Obama sitting there?
I think that answers the question of hurting future job opportunities. Ladies that come onto this company have to “own it”.
For those of you who don’t like this kind of stuff, it’s ok, we mean you no harm.
We will just have to agree to disagree.
