Another Anniversary

Yes, it is April 2th again, Blog´s anniversary, and I am still here after eight years and thousands of posts (more exactly, 2042). The very first (and quite short) one is still there, hidden on the site caverns. The Female Fight Theater has changed along the time, from daily updates and four YouTube playlists to the present sedate pace of one weekly update and one playlist. Accordingly, the peak of audience was on 2012 with an average of 3,000 user sessions per day; today is 1,500. That´s life cycle.

Things have significantly changed in the female fighting scenery as well. Big producers like DWW have left the scene, small ventures have sprouted up (clips4sale being determinant for that), wrestling & porn subgenre (or porn & wrestling?) have now a significant market share and lots of vintage imagery has been recovered and made available. Last but not the least, we are under a glut of free videos which has somehow spoiled ourselves (I just watch a small percentage of them, saving the rest for ...  my heirs!). Ahh, I had forgotten: women with significant pubic hair have entered the realm of bizarre videos.

I intend to follow on with the Blog, giving priority to my preferences: videos I missed decades ago, like the ones from California Supreme, Video Sports, Women Warriors and the like. I guess a lot of my readers are fond of the same subject. But contemporary productions will have room as well, cleansed of scenes with plastic toys, of course.

To commemorate the date, I am again posting a favorite full video from Lady Hawke, #58 with Mary vs Brandy, a rare case where a MILF faces a ... GILF (you may easily figure out its meaning). I have already shown a sample of it, but here it comes in its full fifty minutes. Due to Google Blogger technical limitations, it is presented in five segments that will be posted in the following days.

  1. I am a regular visitor of the Female Fight Theater and I really like the present format. Guess I am a fan of all 'genres' of female fighting but because of the large amount of mayerial out there my expertise, if you can call it that, is limited.

    Anyway, in the old days it was like hearing of a match or reading about it in magazines, finding out where to get it, what it costs and how to get it over to where I live in Europe mainland. Ordering it using Western Union or sending cash and hoping things are going to work out. Watching the mailbox day & night to prevent my parents from intercepting the shipment and finally receiving the item after a covert operation. Finally waiting to being alone in the house, renting a VCR and watching the latest achievement.

    When the internet was introduced the mass came available as well as the payment methods available. Some good producers stopped producing and some less good producers started producing. Guess making money is the main objective and therefor porn related fighting became more popular. I miss some of the old great fighters in combat where I had to guess wether the action was scripted or for real and some women really took it away because I didn't had a clue some were scripted. Today I think over 75% of all material is scripted.

    Finally, thank you for maintaining this forum and hopefully you will continue for a long time.

    Also thank you my fellow fans for your support & input to keeping this forum going :) :)

  2. Oh, almost forgot ... dunno what a GILF is but I am guessing it is the blonde in the clip. May I comment that, thinking what a GILF means, her bathing suit is very sexy for a person of whom I think a GILF is yet it suits her. Slowly coming into that age too I reckon I could only hope my partner still would look like that and would wear those garments and she could take it away but last but not least hoping she would be exploiting those kind of activities :)

    1. Yes, it is the blonde (the Granny) against the younger woman (the Mom).

  3. Question I have is that the clips which are not in the theatre have the YouTube logo on them like this one but I cannot open them in YouTube ... is there a special channel for these clips on YouTube?

    1. Clips uploaded to the Blog go to a hidden YouTube section (Google owns Blogger and YouTube).

  5. Thanks so much for all your work Astrogalo! I am a frequent visitor and I love the breadth of your selections. You are an excellent curator!

    (I solved the problem of my videos being intercepted by renting a PO Box :)

  6. Astro my friend, I can only echo the above comments congratulating you on this 8th anniversary as the foremost commentator on the female fight scene. I have followed this blog for perhaps 6 years now, and it never fails to impress me with the range of its content. I too have had a long history as a fan, so well described by Airlock above, though being in Australia, getting access to material was probably even worse than in Europe. Finding your blog was the best thing that happened to my personal quest and in spite of the amount of material now available via the Internet, your site is still my number one reference. Keep up your great work!

  7. Another 'Congratulations' on this anniversary ! I'm with you older fans of the female wrestling scene , remembering how difficult and frustrating it once was searching the TV Guide and staying up for the 30 second catfight in some 'B'-rated movie on a 2 a.m. , sending for flyers in the back of wrestling magazines or ' Fight Time ' in Cavalier magazine and how easy and over abundant ( possible ? ) it is now. LOL, and also liker you guys, sweating out the mail being intercepted on the expected day of arrival !

    I'm glad for one thing which many disagreed with me on in the past on Barb's old site and that is that our interest never became 'mainstream'. Though it was talked about becoming that way , I'm glad it never really caught on with the general public although I'm surprised that brutal, real female fighting ( MMA and UFC ) has become accepted.

    I do wish some of the live events still existed here and there ( like TUFF for example ) , but selfishly still prefer having this weird little fetish all to ourselves.

    Congratulations again on a GREAT site ... the first thing I open my computer to each morning with my coffee :>)

    Best of luck and continued success with everything !
