Description

Love, Romance, and Great Big Sexuality for Everyone

Big Big Love is the only one-stop-shopping handbook on relationships, sexuality, and big sexy confidence for people of all genders, sizes, and sexual orientations who know that a fantastic love life doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the number on the bathroom scale. Covering everything from dating to sex toys to getting on top, this guide also features tips on navigating tricky topics like making peace with your belly, coping with weight-related prejudice, and creating a happy, satisfying sex life in a culture where no body is ever perfect enough.

This freshly illustrated update of the 2000 cult classic features new interviews with body-acceptance activists, health coaches, psychologists, and more, plus hundreds of quotes from fat folks and those who love them selected from a survey conducted exclusively for the book. From taking your clothes off to BDSM to fat admiration to tips for successful long-term relationships, Big Big Love's savvy, sane advice can help you tackle every hot-button issue you may confront in the bedroom and in love.

      • premium: False
      • source: Marianne Kirby, author, Lessons from the Fatosphere
      • content:

        "Big Big Love is a ginormous blessing to people everywhere. Not only is it a superb sex manual, it's positively radical, fun to read, and life affirming--big time. We know that "people of size" enjoy sex as much as anyone, but to talk about it so frankly, to show it, and give explicit details about the ins and outs of it, is as transgressive as it gets in our culture of "thin is sexy." This book is well worth its weight in gold." --Annie Sprinkle, PhD, Ecosex Educator, Sexologist "Part of enjoying sex is being comfortable with your body. Big Big Love dispels myths related to fat sexuality and helps people learn to take pleasure in their bodies, regardless of size." --Bruce Sturgell, Founder, Chubstr.com "Fat people have sex--and thanks to Hanne Blank's updated and unabashedly unashamed guide to sex and relationships, fat people can have better, more satisfying sex. This book is vitally important for anyone who shops in the plus-size department. Thanks to Hanne, we're all a little luckier when it comes to getting lucky."
