You were so close to having an incredible night. Thirteen years of thrilling, so-so, explosive, underwhelming, experimental sex have led me to one incontrovertible conclusion: There are major myths out there about sex with a person of size.
Do you have pain receptors? Can you tell when uncomfortable twinges strike your body, and do they nudge you to reposition and reconfigure? If so, then this myth is an elementary fallacy that should already be crumpled up and thrown into the nearest fat-shaming bin. This is kind of just how sex works, you guys. Fat People Have Body Limitations Yes, of course fat people have body limitations — but so do thin people, and every single person on this earth except Beyonce…I think we can all agree that she is capable of pretty much anything.
A post shared by Laura lauradelarato on Oct 7, at Via LauraDelarato Of course, attractiveness is subjective: Not everyone finds the same things beautiful. I rarely see my body type rendered in the media.
Advertisement Open your eyes to larger bodies. Actively seek them out and really look. Look to find acceptance in others but also acceptance for your own body. I do understand why this is something people would assume. A girl like me, aka fat. A girl like me, aka unattractive.
A girl like me, aka unfuckable. Let me break this comment down for you: It means that I, a fat person, am considered not good enough to date, be seen with, court, chase after, fall for, or love.
And this problem will always lead back to representation or the lack thereof and how it has distorted the way we treat each other based on our assumed levels of value. The assumption that our fat has circumvented the ability to reach our genitals. Yeah, sometimes I have to arch my back more or lie in a different angle for better access, but this is not solely a fat person thing.
This, again, is an everybody thing. Advertisement Hell, there are entire companies dedicated to making products that allow all bodies to be more comfortable during sex. Liberator has been in operation for more than 15 years, and their sex furniture is designed for everyone to bow and bend on a supportive firm cushion with a machine-washable cover.
Via Liberator My thing is always my belly and my butt. The same can be said for using penetrative toys. I opt for ones like the Tantus Silk Large with a longer stem so that I can play with depth and shallowness while still being able to hold onto the base for any kind of play. People are allowed to be lazy. People are allowed to have a night off. People are allowed to not be into it. Are you into me? Do both of us not have to be up early?
Can I take a night off from doing work and personal projects? If the answer to all of the above is yes, then take off your pants, your skirt, your latex bodysuit actually, keep that one on!
