"Why I only want to have sex with fat bodies"
A Fat Girl Talks About Her Sex Life – Aisle
F rench auteur cinema has increasingly been exploring themes of sex through scenarios whose explicitness verges on the pornographic. Her film Romance was billed as the most explicit heterosexual art film of its time. Sexual and cerebral, violent and controversial, her work sets out to provoke. The girls have a typical sibling love-hate relationship—one moment insulting each other, the next ganging up on their parents and giggling helplessly. But Fat Girl is no cute teen pic where girls worry about weight, dates, and makeup, and Breillat quickly cuts to the heart of the matter: sexuality. The slow pace of the scenes, their dispassionate style and brutal precision, disengages us, denying eroticism. Her gaze makes us uneasy for two reasons.
How to Have Sex With a Fat Girl
Fat Girl Sex is a bi-weekly sex column devoted to the celebration of the sexual empowerment of women, body, and sex-positivity featuring personal meandering about all the nasty things we do in the dark. For the majority of my chubby life, the only time I heard about fat girls having sex was as the butt of a joke or as the description of a fetish. The cultural acceptance of fatphobia dehumanizing and desexualizing our bodies, framing our desirability as laughable and our sexuality as pathetic. For many years, this perpetuated anxious thoughts within me. Like, really, actually fat?
My mam has always wished she could be as skinny as she was the first time she thought she was fat - and I often wish the same for my sex life. Not necessarily that I wish I was skinny as I was when I first started banging, but I wonder how my sex life would differ if I'd stayed as thin as I was then. My first five fuck buddies, when I was 16 and a size 14, only banged me if I was fully dressed or off my face. These guys were not at the same time, but in quick succession, because as much as I hated my body back then, I have always adored getting railed.
