Fat Sex and FAQs

So the article was called

FAT SEX: what everyone wants to know but is afraid to ask

and it was written by (I kid you not) msvaginascience :

I’m a fat woman. I’m a fat woman who has had lots and lots of awesome sex almost exclusively with partners much smaller than myself. When I met my current partner a year ago, I was at my fattest, about 150 lbs heavier than he is, making our sex the most drastic in terms of size difference relative to my past partners. Most women I know would not be comfortable with that size difference, and in candid moments, friends have asked, “So, how does that work?” The short answer? It works just great and I love it. There are many misconceptions about how fat people have sex, especially when one partner is fat and the other isn’t. I’m here to explore that topic, specifically the issue of being a fat woman having sex with a smaller partner.

I know many women who would love to have sex with smaller partners but feel that it wouldn’t work mechanically, that two drastically different bodies couldn’t come together in a pleasurable way. Additionally, many women who do have smaller partners tell me they don’t totally enjoy sex because they feel self-conscious, embarrassed, or unfulfilled because they can’t “let go” during sex. This brings me to what I feel is one of the most important parts of enjoying sex as a fat woman:

You’ll need to overcome the idea that your partner doesn’t know how fat you are. 

Your partner knows, and guess what? He or she wants to have sex with you. When I was a young chubbette, I remember trying to contort my body into more “flattering” positions while I was having sex, as if my partner didn’t notice my belly was getting paunchy. I’d arch my back, refuse to do positions that made me “feel fat,” and drape different parts of my body with a blanket or pillow to hide my increasingly chubby body. Sometimes that made me feel more at ease, but mostly it became tedious, distracted me from feeling sexy, and annoyed the crap out of my partner who just wanted to see his hot girlfriend naked. Once I became much larger than I’d been before, I simply refused to have the lights on during sex for the same reason — “He won’t know what my body looks like if I don’t show him.” Well, he totally knew how fat I was, and guess what? He still wanted to have sex with me, and what’s more, he loved having sex with me. It took me a long time to realize that my partners were having sex with me in part because of the way my body looks, not in spite of the way my body looks. It sounds simple, I know, but when you spend your whole life being told that fat bodies are not sexy, it takes some time to realize that sexiness isn’t that simple. This understanding is not something that happens overnight for most of us. Hell, it can take years. But, the sooner you learn (yes,learn) to feel sexy just the way you are, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy your sexuality more fully. Really, this goes for men and women of all sizes, not just fat women.

Irresistible hook and well-written. But, those questions you’ve been afraid to ask. The tricky ones? Still unanswered.

Ms Science –may I call you, Vagina?–  is quick to disclose (okay brag a little) that her sexual experience is limited to partners smaller than herself. So the suggestions and positions are mostly common sense rather than a down and dirty how-to.

I appreciate the coming of age stories of “how I learned not hate myself” but I don’t want them in every fat positive article I read. I want an article that promises information of how to have fat, happy sex to deliver on the promise. I’m reminded of a time when all the lesbian love stories involved an element of self-hatred and how they overcame it, embraced monogamy and got the happy ending. Those of us who aren’t monogamous and self-hating? Just skip to the end.

To paraphrase: if you’re a fat girl who wants to bang skinny boys; it’s easier than you think. If you’re looking for feel good self-talk/love your sexy self (and to be honest, we all want that sometimes) check out these delicious fattie bloggers complete with sexy, smug, full body pix (no soulful eyes or pretty faces) just grrls walking their buttiful talk.

HOW TO HAVE SEX WHILE FAT: A SHORT GUIDE TO SEXY FUN FOR FATTIES AND PEOPLE WHO F#&@ THEM

http://www.xojane.com/sex/sex-with-a-fat-person

Here are my answers to (some) unanswered questions:

1) Fat girl on top? Depends on her knees, fellas.

2) Strap ons for fat/fat pairings? Rather than struggle with the traditional positions and repositioning bellies and shifting harnesses, go for a thigh harness. Then do it in your most comfortable sturdy armchair. You use your hands (and knee) to effect lift and thrust rather than your hips. You can bounce her (or him) on your knee. Do hold on (and/or encourage your partner to hold on to the chair behind you) so s/he falls forward during orgasm. One of the advantages of bed-sex is you seldom fall off.

3) Cunnilingus without losing the plot or blocking your airways? Use both hands. While holding the labia open to expose the clit, I like to keep the thumb of my dominant hand close so that I can switch back and forth when my tongue or jaw start to freeze up. Notice where your index and pointer finger are in this operation. Regardless how deeply involved they may be, the relative inflexibility of your fingers to the floppiness of the flesh thrashing around them, allows you to either use that joint as a nose rest or if you’re a mouthbreather to create a kind of “air pocket” so you can push in/on rather than pull away to catch your breath.

What questions do you still have? Where do you usually go for answers?
