In the1977 interview, the actor spoke of orgies,
drugs, and homosexuality .
Arnold Schwarzenegger once told a magazine
interviewer about participating in an orgy with
other bodybuilders, noting that "everybody jumped
on" the woman involved and "took her upstairs where
we all got together." The California Republican
added that not every muscleman participated in the
gang bang, "just the guys who can fuck in front of
other guys. Not everybody can do that. Some think
that they don't have a big-enough cock, so they
can't get a hard-on."
Schwarzenegger's lewd talk appeared in the
August 1977 issue of Oui, an adult magazine
published by Playboy Enterprises until 1981 and
still available today on newsstands (we originally
reported, incorrectly, that the provocative title
was defunct). The five-page Schwarzenegger
interview was conducted by author Peter Manso and
flagged on the magazine's cover with the headline,
"Arnold Schwarzenegger on the Sex Secrets of

conducted the Schwarzenegger Q&A.]
At the time of the Oui story, Schwarzenegger,
then 29, was appearing in "Pumping Iron," a
documentary on the bodybuilding circuit. In the
Q&A with Manso, today's gubernatorial wannabe
spoke about his sex life, drug usage, and belief
that men "shouldn't feel like fags just because
they want to have nice-looking bodies."
Schwarzenegger even entertained a question about
his penis size. When Manso asked, "Is your cock
disproportionate to the rest of you?"
Schwarzenegger replied, "Well, that depends on what
you mean by disproportionate. The cock isn't a
muscle, so it doesn't grow in relation to the
shoulders, say, or the pectorals. You can't make it
bigger through exercise, that's for sure." He added
that "women have told me they're curious about its
size--you know, outgoing chicks who're just trying
to be outrageous or horny. I hear all kind of
lines, including 'Oh, you're hurting me; you're so
big.' But it means nothing. Bodybuilders' cocks are
the same size as everyone else's."
Asked if he felt "exploited" by women who
pursued him because of his physique, Schwarzenegger
said, "No, I'd feel used only if I didn't get
something out of it. If a girl comes on strong and
says, 'I really dig your body and I want to fuck
the shit out of you,' I just decide whether or not
I like her. If I do take her home, I try to make
sure I get just as much out of it as she does. The
word exploited therefore wouldn't apply."
Schwarzenegger later noted that once outside the
gym, he forgets about bodybuilding: "I can look at
a chick who's a little out of shape and if she
turns me on, I won't hesitate to date her. If she's
a good fuck, she can weigh 150 pounds, I don't
On the practice of abstaining from sex prior to
a competition, Schwarzenegger rejected that
approach: "I get laid on purpose. I can't sleep
before a competition and I'm up all night, anyway,
so instead of staring at the ceiling I figure I
might as well find somebody and fuck." In fact, at
the 1972 Mr. Olympia contest, "we had girls
backstage giving head, then all of us went out and
I won. It didn't bother me at all; in fact, I went
out there feeling like King Kong," added
When Manso asked whether he used "dope,"
Schwarzenegger replied, "Yes, grass and hash--no
hard drugs. But the point is that I do what I feel
like doing. I'm not on a health kick."
Asked whether he was "freaked out" by being in
such close contact with guys at the gym,
Schwarzenegger said, "Men shouldn't feel like fags
just because they want to have nice-looking
bodies...Gay people are fighting the same kind of
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..."
Other topics addressed by Schwarzenegger
* His dad Gustav, who was later revealed to have
been a Nazi Party member: "My father was the local
police chief and he led a very regular life."
* His early days training in Germany: "I was
living in Munich at the time, hanging out with
night people--entertainers, hookers, and bar
owners--and I had a girlfriend who was a stripper.
I was an innocent boy from a farm town, but I grew
up fast in Munich."
* Southern California hijinks: "Bodybuilders
party a lot, and once, in Gold's--the gym in
Venice, California, where all the top guys
train--there was a black girl who came out naked.
Everybody jumped on her and took her upstairs,
where we all got together." Asked by Manso if he
was talking about a "gang bang," Schwarzenegger
answered, "Yes, but not everybody, just the guys
who can fuck in front of other guys. Not everybody
can do that. Some think that they don't have a
big-enough cock, so they can't get a hard-on.
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
