Bodybuilding chat sex

"I have no memory of any of the articles I did 20 or 30 years ago." But only the night before, Sacramento radio station KFBK talk show host Mark Williams specifically asked Schwarzenegger about the Oui article, which had just been posted on the Internet.

According to an Associated Press account of the broadcast, Schwarzenegger responded: "I never lived my life to be a politician.

"Another thing: recently I posed for a gay magazine, which caused much comment. Gay people are fighting the same stereotyping that bodybuilders are: People have certain misconceptions about them just as they do about us.

Well, I have absolutely no hang-ups about the fag business." Schwarzenegger told the group-sex anecdote during a discussion of the rigors of bodybuilding.

There was "a sense that Arnold had figured out his life, he had come to America, and this was his new life aborning," Manso said. The bodybuilder portrayed himself as tolerant of gays.

"Men shouldn't feel like fags just because they want to have nice-looking bodies," he said.

"Obviously, I've made statements that were ludicrous and crazy and outrageous and all those things, because that's the way I always was. (Schwarzenegger) has said that if you go back in history, there are outrageous things he has said." Meanwhile, advocates of gay rights criticized Schwarzenegger for his use of the word "fag." "I think he's got a problem, bordering on a fixation" about gays, said Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco."It just didn't sound like the kind of thing that you want the leader of the world's sixth-largest economy bragging about." The interview was published in Oui's August 1977 issue.It was conducted by freelance writer Peter Manso, author of highly regarded biographies of actor Marlon Brando and novelist Norman Mailer.Manso recalled the young Schwarzenegger as charming, narcissistic and unusually candid. and life after films, he imagined either a business career or a career in politics." The bodybuilder's use of pot was touted in the article's headline: "he smokes dope, stays out late and forgets to take his vitamins," it said.Even at that early date, he was interested in a political career, the writer said. "I make my protein drink with whiskey," Schwarzenegger told Oui. I get stoned, I do my own thing." Schwarzenegger's comments on gays came when Manso asked him if he got "freaked out by being in such close contact with men" while lifting weights.‘I was crossing the road a few days ago and a woman stopped me and said, “I hope you don’t think me rude, but your body is absolutely amazing”. ” And although she’ll be 70 next year, Angela doesn’t see an end to her weightlifting coming any time soon.‘I’ve had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands, but trained with my hand in a splint.In the interview, Schwarzenegger, then 29, acknowledged using "grass and hash, -- no hard drugs." He described participating in group sex with a group of bodybuilders and a "black girl" at Gold's Gym in Venice (Los Angeles County), saying "having chicks around is the kind of thing that breaks up the intense training.It gives you relief, and then afterward you go back to the serious stuff." And in a discussion of bodybuilders, he referred to gay people as "fags," saying, "I have absolutely no hang-ups about the fag business; though it may bother some bodybuilders, it doesn't affect me at all." A reference to the interview was posted on the online Drudge Report Wednesday night, and the full text appeared on the Web site I was always that way, because otherwise I wouldn't have done the things that I did in my career, including the bodybuilding and the show business and all those things." Spokesman Rob Stutzman said he believed voters would understand that the old interview must be seen in context of the times and the world in which Schwarzenegger then worked. Michael Andraychak, president of Los Angeles' Stonewall Democratic Club, which opposes the recall, called on the actor to apologize, saying gays react to "fag" much as African Americans react to "the n-- word." Toni Broaddus, program director for Equality California, the statewide gay- rights group, said she was troubled by Schwarzenegger's description of group sex in the gym."This is the bodybuilding world, and he's in the entertainment industry," he said. "That many men and one woman -- it was very troubling, because it did seem close to rape," she said.
