GOOD FRIDAY NIGHT!!!
Does SIZE matter???
For BLACK FOLK, the question may now refer more to our weight, and there are several myths and stereotypes about the sex lives of overweight and obese people.
UNFORTUNATELY, it’s no secret that BLACK FOLK are disproportionately more likely to be overweight and obese than other races and ethnicities.
The OFFICE Of MINORITY HEALTH finds that among AFRICAN AMERICANS, 80% of Women and 70% of Men are OVERWEIGHT, and 54% of Women and 38.3% of Men are OBESE.
While there are challenges to the Body Mass Index (BMI) as a measuring tool for overall health, the truth is that BLACK FOLK are generally larger than other races and ethnicities, mainly due to our CULTURAL TRADITIONS, STANDARDS Of BEAUTY, and our perspectives on DIET and EXERCISE.
EBONY Magazine Journalist FEMINISTA JONES is a Big Girl who was once much bigger.
She's encountered partners who claimed to love women with “meat on their bones,” and has felt her size was a fetish for “chubby chasers” (people who are only interested in plus-sized people). She's also had times when she felt approached for sex primarily because people assumed she was a desperate fat woman.
So how does Weight and Size affect the PLUS-SIZED WOMAN and her SEX LIFE???
MYTHS About BIG BEAUTIFUL WOMEN (BBW):
1.) BBW are rarely approached by men, so her sex options are limited.
2.) BBW are desperate and freaky, and will do any-and-everything just to get a man for SEX.
3.) BBW are better at performing ORAL SEX.
4.) BBW have tighter VAGINAS, because; they don't have active sex lives.
5.) BBW are NOT ATTRACTIVE ENOUGH for dating, courting, or relationships, BUTT; are great for SEX.
CeCe OLISA of THE BIG GIRL BLOG says;
"Because there are so many myths swirling around that stem from big girls being undersexed, we are treated like we are oversexed. Men are approaching us assuming that we’ve done everything that big girls are rumored to do."She also offers encouragement;
“Don’t let people convince you that a fat life is a miserable life. Become comfortable with your own body so that you can comfortably share it with others. Stand naked in the mirror, take a yoga class, embrace who you are right now so that others will do the same. You have nothing to apologize for!”Check out the FULL-FIGURED 411, and read what happens when FEMINISTA JONES asked a few people to offer some insight with the hope of setting the record straight for the PLUS-SIZE LOVERS IN THE HOUSE .
