WhaT are members' views on Jungle Heroines? I have recently submitted a few pics of my OC jungle heroine in peril. I see jungle heroines as a specially adapted form of action heroine for a specific- and lawless- environment. But how do you see them?

Woud you be happy to see their inclusion in this group? Or prefer to see them in a separate group? To my knowledge there is only one other group specialising in jungle Queens, Junglegirlsloveshack, and this seems to major in pinup pics rather than perils.

So we have a field unique to ourselves, if we wish, with its own special perils!

Please, i would love your feedback!

Unless our Jungle girl is involved in Espionage it belongs to another group. Why not start up an Action Ladies group for such pictures.

I agree with Dale that this doesn't fit the Spy Girls theme. I wasn't here when the group was founded but I've noticed we do bend some rules in allowing characters like Lara Croft or the Resident Evil Ladies cause these are girls who use guns, and that sort of fits the theme. I've never seen a jungle girl with a gun so no, it doesn't work.

However, I would support the idea of a jungle girl held prisoner by an evil female spy.

Well I think few of the women we classically think of "spies" are really such. Many - say like Ms. Peele, Honey West, Agent Sculley, or Max (Dark Angel) - falls into the "detective/troubleshooter" mold. This group was certainly created to embrace those types of characters as well as the solidly defined "spies". In fact I'm feeling a bit hard pressed to come up many true "spy girls" in media (printed and visual).

Oh. I agree. Spies, agents, confidence women, detectives, and so on. The thing is. They all have very similar skill sets. And they run many of the same risks.

And thats somewhat different than the skill set an Amazon, warrior woman, jungle heroine. or there modern couterparts have.

Mrs Peel and Agent Skully (I'm not familiar with the other two except in passing.) certainly have done there fair share of sneaking and peeking. And although the may fight sometimes. I don't think they quite fit into the latter catagorie of warrior women. Thats the key difference in my opinion.

Yes, that works. As long as there's a spy, agent, courier, or assassin in the picture. That would keep it within the groups core intent. A jungle heroine could be a prisoner, assistant, guide or probably several others I haven't thought of.

You might want to check out Primitive Fantasy [link]

I don't have a problem with Jungle Heroines (or Amazons) as long as there spy's. But I think The group was founded as the title says to showcase Spy Girls. Adding in Jungle Heroines that don't fit that catagory seems to open the door to letting almost any type of adventure girl in.

Better that Jungle Heroines be in there own group.

Good points Dale! Primitive Fantasy is interesting, though also appears not to be perils-oriented. Spy Girls is a potentially wide category in iteelf as the mission statement says. But we certainly try to steer toward non-superpowered and original character heroines,. preferably fighting crime. Is a jungle woman a specialised form of this- or is the spy girl or other perilous femle adventurer characterised by costume and environment?

Well, a jungle woman, or Amazon. I think in there base form are more geared as warriors or adventurers. They can of course be Spys too, But. I think the key difference is that Spies are generally mission oriented. There out to accomplish a specific task. Whether its acquiring information, eliminating an opponent, or espionage.
And obviously they can end up in perilous situations. But Peril is not really the main focus of the group as I see it. That just comes with the territory

I believe I've submitted a few Amazons in Spy like situations. But if you open up the group to general adventuring or peril. I could submit quite a large number of Non-Spy characters. I think you would just be creating another generic girl power group. Right now there are only two spy related groups that I know of. This one. And "Assassins Are Us" But Assassins Are us comes at the subject from a completely different angle. Jungle girls I certainly have no problem with if there submitted in a form that implies they were spy's. But I think it should be left at that.

Thanks, really glad to hear your view, analysis and clear expression. The focus on peril is an area I wouldnt quite see eye to eye on- its a mission statement item- and there dont seem to be a lot of non-bondage peril groups either. So maybe a second group for general non-bondage peril including junglegirl adventure peril might be a good idea.
