Girls, unless you're on here solely to be objectified & pick up guys, I'd pretty much just stay off of here! B/c that's all it seems to be! Girls competing over the sexiest photo w/o just being porn! & guys just finding ways to talk to the girls w/ the sexiest pic! Sorry, I have more respect for myself than that

22 Nov
Sorry, but I got on here hoping to get in better shape, not just get hit on by guys & see nude pix of other girls
22 Nov
Nude pix ???
22 Nov
Yes Nathan, I have seen 2 or 3 naked girls on here, no clothes what so ever on in the pix. & I understand this app is a good way to get in shape, but quite frankly, when I have continuous guys hitting on me, it just makes me not want to work out so I get rid of the creepers!!

I dnt mean to sound rude or offensive but I'm not understanding ths whole conversation...number 1 if its not for sale dnt advertise it ...also i dnt understand th forum says to get out but yet ths conversation is still going on??? Thts like saying th building is on fire and everyone standing around discussin what color th smoke is....I'm confused as to is their a fire or not? Please dnt take ths as hostile or hateful not my intention ...but their is good everywhere and bad everywhere it doesn't matter wat ur doing or where ur going their is...

While I think it's great getting healthy and celebrating your new body, I do think there's way to be express yourself pic wise. I mean I get it if you got it flaunt it but classy is better than not classy.

I disagree rather thts going on or not is not my buisness and only encounter of such was my own stupidity staring me n th face yet panned out very respectful...getting n shape is wat u make of it ...their is a lot of workouts to do and plenty of information and help as well as plenty of motivation to....and I've found it to b one of greatest fitness apps there is

Amen sista!! To each naked titty shot their own, stay true to yourself...work hard and bounce the negativity far far away!!

Hi Brianne, I am truly sorry that u have had a bad experience on here. But I beg to differ, I dnt believe tht ths app is a hook up or soft porn app. I believe there are some genuine people on here dare I mention the name Mario P Canel and the likes of him. And some others on here who totally inspire me. Yes there are some unnecessary pics on here. Buuuut if u look at others baring their abs,guns and glutes u will c Tht they are proud of their progress and ths app gives them the chance to share it. I am not any different I have bared my belly to show off my obliques,but as a mum of 4 I believe I worked hard to get them and I too wnt to inspire other mums who feel post baby bodies are merely a dream. Good luck in future endeavors.

I Mostly stick to workouts and forums and its been really nice. Sorry for your bad experience.

If I ever browse user photos I do notice that on the female users' certain photos there are usually at least 6 dudes making comments and often they are the same guys (COUGHcarlCOUGHCOUGH)

I'm human, I click on a pretty picture now and then, but I refrain from comments and likes...

However, here in the forums I rarely see behavior like that. Usually its information and encouragement.

I admit I assume there is a lot more going on behind the scenes with guys pming girls in weird creepy ways... I don't experience that part of it.  Knock it off you guys.

Again, sorry you had a bad impression of what goes on here cuz for me its been so helpful.

23 Nov
Patrick thank you, b/c although he hasn't actually offended me in any way, I will say that Carl is 1 I think who has commented on just about every girls pix.

Sorry for you experiences so far on here Brianna but I have to agree with the others this app has a broad range of exercises and ppl willing to share their knowledge past experiences and give motivation to help others. Sure there's some rotten eggs in the crowd but you'll find those everywhere in life you just have to ignore and overlook them. Well good luck and TST!!! Today shapes tomorrow

Well we all have different things we want to share with the world. I have deleted the photo with my face/body and dont use my real name on here. And i find it very easy to create a lil community of the ones who have the same mindset. If had some strange pm's but those dont bother me.

There are plenty of ppl who give great info on the forum and some with great workouts on here. I focus on those great points instead of the few creeps. 

22 Nov
Totally agree with this

Everbody has to remember that not everyone on here or any other app or website is not on there for for the same reasons you are. Nor for what the app or site is for! You have to stay focused on why your here and get what it is you came for! I see it to! Not the nudity, but guys trying to pick up girls or leave disrespectful comments. I just had to address a couple guys a few minutes ago about that. Plus I see the women with the sexy pics to! That's not going to stop me from being on this app or view it negatively. If thats what they are into, so be it, lol! Yes, no one should be made to feel uncomfortable or make someone else uncomfortable! There's immature people here as well as mature people. Don't let them stop on you for moving forward and don't let them be the view of this app nor everybody else on here. There is great people on here from all walks of life and backgrounds that we all can learn from and be inspired by!

Haha frank I saw that. I saw those comments yesterday and was upset, especially since I've seen a few woman say things on here about getting constantly harassed by guys... I looked again today, prob was not ever gonna say anything even though I wanted to, but I was really glad to see your comment. That's why I followed you a few minutes ago actually.

Either report them or block them if you can. Stay off their profile and move on to the next person, bottom line! I'm sorry if anybody on here as had a bad experience, but none of us has the right to tell someone to GET OUT!
23 Nov
I'm not really saying get out, it was just an attention grabber b/c I wanted to worn other girls of the experience I've had. I might not have the right to tell anyone to not use this app, but you don't have the right to make any comment about it until you've experienced what I have
24 Nov
Brianne I'm sorry you had whatever bad experience you on here. If you want to warn other women that's great! But uour post says get out! Amd like I said none us has that right and I have the right to comment because you posted this in a public forum not a inbox! You don't know experience I've had on here! I tried to give you some encouragement as well to get over iour bad experience, but ifmy advice or anybody else's advice doesn't help, well do what's on your heart and delete this app. The real point for all...

Hey I'm kind of sorry I replied to this the way I did, because now all I see is a bunch of men telling this woman that she is basically wrong.

Until we get to experience it from the other side, guys, its kind of silly to say things like "don't let it bother you" or whatever.  A woman gets on this app and just because she has a female name   and maybe one picture of her she will immediately get followed by four or five guys for no reason other than "oh look, a LADY on the internet!" And probably a couple meat market style photo comments and a private msg or two. That's the first impression.

We have no idea what it feels like to get constant private messages from guys for no reason, to get followed by creeps who may not even say anything but why the heck is he even following me, to have every photo of our body we are proud of be commented on by barbarians.... sure you can kind of relate to a couple of those things maybe, but the experience of all those added up, every day, in every environment, since you were a CHILD, is something we will thankfully never fully know.

I've seen a few posts by just a few women that reminded me that, like EVERYWHERE else, I get a completely different experience here than women. I assume that those few women who posted are only the exception because they bothered to SAY SOMETHING. The rest probably just sigh, roll their eyes, make their profile private, (which I don't have to feel pressured to do) and move on quietly, accepting that "I was hoping this app would be different but...that's the way it is on the internet"

This app doesn't even have a block feature! I think it does have an option to delete other peoples comments on your photos, which is great. Can you report people?

Maybe there should be a "name and shame" thread. Where women can post the names of the guys who pm them inappropriately, or comment on their photos. If for no other reason than to feel better and more comfortable here by connecting with other women, and feeling less alone and isolated when they find out that "Joe P. Scumbag" also msgd 155 other women in a similar way. That's how guys like that often operate. They keep going, behind the scenes, counting on the isolation of a one-on-one interaction to make their manipulations possible. They know what they are doing is inappropriate, but they count on the fact that most people only see one interaction at a time.

Cuz what's the harm in a guy saying hello to a woman, right? But then if you found out that guy creeps ALL the pictures,  private messages the same things to ALL the women...he'd be exposed as a creep.

Its hard to stand up to a skillfully manipulative person on your own, but when you have 14 other people saying "he said the same thing to me" its a lot easier, and a lot more comfortable.

Patrick ur th one thts cool

Wow that was just beautiful, yes it was!!! I am not saying Brianne is wrong, yes I have had comments on my pics that weren't inappropriate but I cld have been disgruntled by them. The world is full of the good,bad and downright awful,buuuuut we are all human wth pumping hearts and a head full of intricate thought processes. It is hard for females,but in the same breath it is hard for the males on here. There are double standards in our world,its ok for me to post on a fellow female skimblers profile"wow u look gorgeous hun keep up the good work"! And it wnt b thort of as inappropriate, but if a guy does it on the same profile,he is a creep or perve?? Get where I am going wth ths? This is a WORKOUT app full of all walks of life from mums trying to get their pre baby bodies back,the older tryng to b heart smart,elite athletes,body builders,etc. All of us have one thng in common we came on cos we r health conscious. For those that aren't here for tht and hassle the likes of poor Brianne,go join a dating site. Brianne I do feel for u hunny and u have opened up a great big can of worms,good on you for havng the guts to speak up and protect us fellow girl skimblers who r on here to purely workout!!

23 Nov
I really dnt understand though if ths is truly a problem and sombody is truly offended y not jus delete th app??? If u hav problems with th pics thn either dnt post thm or jus dnt look at thm....how bout jus workout???? I knw tht I'm not maybe th one to comment on ths stuff...y not just report it like frank said??? Overwhelming typhoons like human emotions swallowing all whole destoying genuine decency while paraded agendas dance on top of a mock soap box preaching secret missions and starting pointless wars...just thoughts tht came in my mind...lets jus workout
23 Nov
I definitely am planning on deleting the app soon, but I have respect for myself & other women, & I'm sorry but when I have guys telling me they want to see my boobs, or butt or saying they want to "lick my nipples" (just to name a few of my obscene comments I've received) I feel that new women joining this app have a right to know the possibilities they're gonna experience!
23 Nov
OMGOSH!!! That is absolutely horrid and vile!! I am sorry u have been subjected to that!! Can u report them so hopefully they get kicked off so YOU dnt have to leave!?? :-(
23 Nov
U say u want to warn people bout ur experiences on here but th words u said just gav me a bad experience...I'm autistic and I'm like a kid in a lot of ways and wat u jus said came straight to my email inbox...tht was very gross and u shoudnt hav repeated it. YUK!!!!....to much talking not enough lifting i jus want to workout!!!

Hey Hannah, you definitely shouldn't have had to read that. If you open up this thread on the app, at the top, next to the reply button, there is an eye with a line through it. Select that to unfollow this thread. If you're still getting emails from this thread change your settings - you may have to go to Skimble.com to do so.

Hi Brianne,

Thanks for pointing this out. I can't say I've noticed the inappropriate pictures or comments myself but I think there is a report option for private messages.

I hope you won't let the nasties discourage you from working out. Everyone I know on the forums are awesome people determined to improve themselves and help others do the same.

I get weird pervs sending me messages every now and then too or comments. I delete them and move on. Im not on here to be picked up. Im on here to get fit and find people of the same mind set. If your getting hit on ignore it. If u see nude pics report it and move on. Im sorry your not happy with what u are seeing and how guys are hitting on u. I hope things get better but there will always be bad apple everywhere you go. Just dont dwell on it. Life is too short! :)

I think the human body is like art. Why hide what you work so hard for? I think it's great for the people that work hard to show progress and get a little recognition. I don't find it any different than a fashion show, except for the fact a great body can't be bought like the newest prada stilettos. It takes a lot more work to get a great body than buy a new pair of shoes. However, yeah I agree that the inappropriate comments were uncalled for. But where there is skin to be shown, there will be creeps. Good luck

I'm going to blunt on this one and I don't mean any offense to anyone.

I haven't seen any nude or "inappropriate" pictures of any girls, even if I did I'm not going to let it bother me because that's them not me, why should I waste my time choosing to be offended over something that someone else is doing that has nothing to do with me? That's a waste of energy and thought in my opinion.

Its how you look at it. It isn't soft porn kind of thing. Aberrations will always be there, remember we r in the selfie age. People don't mind sharing and showing. I personally don't like it but its best to ignore rather than find fault and feel bad.

Your bad experience is not one off but all of us have these.

I think we are losing sight of the real issue most strongly addressed in this topic. The problem isn't so much in the people who are less shy in their pics, that's their choice and really I don't see anything here I can't see in almost any fitness magazine. The problem is with the guys who harass any woman they see online. Body pics on a workout app are no reason to say some of the things I've seen being said.

rule of thumb: if you wouldn't say it to a woman you saw at the gym, don't say it here. Hell, some of you are pretty dim bulbs so go with "church"...if you wouldn't say it to a woman at church, don't say it here (or anywhere). And if you ARE the kind of guy who says "you're sexy" to women you don't know at church, cut that shit out.

Its not like I'm offended by the girls posting naked pics. Its just a matter of self respect. What kind of REAL woman post a picture in a thong. I'm just sayin tho. Didn't yo mama raise guys ou better than that. Fuck niggas, unless its your husband. Shit I dnt pay no attention to the guys on here. One I'm married, two they're usually annoying.

... the ones with great bodies?

It's funny how you say "didn't your momma raise you better than that" and then go on to say "fuck niggas"... Some people are just raised differently, I guess.
