Fat Girl Walking: Sex, Food, Love, and Being Comfortable in Your Skin...Every Inch of It by Brittany GibbonsDear person holding Fat Girl Walking
First of all, thanks for picking up this copy of my first book. I hope you buy it—and not just because each purchase gets me one step closer to buying the leather pants of my dreams.
I hope you buy Fat Girl Walking because I want to start a conversation. Or continue a conversation, one I inadvertently started a while ago when I took my clothes off on a stage in front of 700 people. A lot of people thought I was awesome for doing that. A lot of others thought a size 18 woman had absolutely no business showing off her body. Unfortunately for them, Ive made it my personal mission on my blog, in social media, on television, and now in this amazing book youre holding, to destroy the ridiculous myth that every woman who is overweight hates her body and herself. I, Brittany Gibbons, and the Curvy Girls I speak to every day on the internet, beg to differ. We love our bodies. We love fashion. We are in loving relationships, having lots of sex. We arent just a fetish, were normal women. Sure, sometimes we doubt ourselves, were not robots, but not anymore than EVERY OTHER WOMAN ON THE PLANET. See, Fat Girls arent freaks of nature. Were just like you. Maybe we are you.
Fat Girl Walking is a collection of stories from my life, my thoughts about the issues that I have faced as a woman, wife, mom, daughter, daughter-in-law, and internet personality in regards to my weight. I have tried to be as honest as I possibly could—apologies in advance to my husband and parents, but hopefully any discomfort you feel is quickly replaced by laughter. The insecure texts to my husband and summer camp hijinks are hilarious if I do say so myself. And I also ask some tough questions, things like What if my husband weighs less than I do? and Is my body hate ruining my daughters life? Read Fat Girl Walking and lets start having these conversations. No pressure, but we may just save all of womankind.
Gabourey Sidibe Slams Fat Shamers for 'Empire'Sex Scene: I Felt Sexy
How to Have Sex With a Fat Girl
Evette Dionne. Surprise: Fat people have sex. Fat people have sex drives, partners, and desires, but popular culture rarely, if ever, shows fat people, especially fat women, having sex. Plus, women of size, like Gabourey Sidibe, are derided when they dare to perform in sex scenes. For instance, social media users shredded Sidibe when her character, Becky, shot a "controversial" sex scene for "Empire. Meanwhile, Becky [is] getting it all," one woman tweeted. Variations of this tweet, including one that ended up on The Shade Room , went viral.

I was 16, a size 14 and it was —long before body positivity hit the mainstream or my Tumblr feed. Now, as a year-old woman wearing a size 20, sex has changed year after year as my body has gotten bigger and the dating pool has gotten smaller. Before fucking someone new, I feel the need to address my fatness before we meet. I think this is what some guys were hoping would happen too. Avoiding belly touching makes it all the more obvious that the belly is there. If you want to fuck me, fuck all of me. I can see it on your lips.
After facing bullying and rejection for her weight, Karla Crowe spent years hiding her body in baggy clothes and starving herself to appeal to men. Boys would make a lot of fat jokes, girls would generally exclude me. That newfound confidence affected her dating life.
When I met my current partner a year ago, I was at my fattest, about lbs heavier than he is, making our sex the most drastic in terms of size difference relative to my past partners. It works just great and I love it. This brings me to what I feel is one of the most important parts of enjoying sex as a fat woman:. Your partner knows, and guess what? He or she wants to have sex with you.
