Welcome to the online webzine/gallery of celebrated photographer and writer Bill Dobbins. In these pages you will find the best and most artistic depictions of the muscular female physique in the world, hundreds of examples of the physique as fine art and thousands of images of artistic female nudes. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about these fantastic women through profiles and special feature articles.

You will also discover other surprising aspects of Bill Dobbins' artistic curiosity. For example, photographs and profiles of some of the top actresses in the adult video industry---porno chicks---up close and personal as you've never seen them before. You will also encounter the nether world of the strange and the bizzare---erotic photo experiments and unusual lifestyle choices, such as that of the world of SM and bondage and that of the transgendered.

This site is being expanded and updated amost on a daily basis as Bill Dobbins adds more and more of the material he has gathered over the course of a 20 year career, as well as brand new photos and articles which appear in these pages months before they are published in any print magazine, and which contain images which are too erotic for most bodybuilder and other mainstream publications.
