BBW FanFest 2012

This is an exciting topic to blog about, especially for me… as most people know, back in 2008, myself and a few of my fellow BBW’s sued Adultcon for size discrimination. We rented booth space, but when we sent in photos of ourselves to be placed on their event website, we were denied due to not being “height/weight proportionate”. It was a major slap in the face considering that we work just as hard in this industry, if not harder, than the skinny porn folk. It is also known that AVN is not an avid supporter of BBW. There are very few BBW related movies that ever get nominated and there are definitely NO BBW talent categories. Exxxotica is a neutral convention… though they welcome us, they do not promote us as being a part of the event. At the end of the day BBW’s are like the red-headed step child of porn. I  understand that we are in what’s considered to be a fetish/niche market, but come on.

The exciting news is… there is a NEW convention that is exclusively for BBW’s and the fans who love us! It is called BBW FanFest and it pops off for the first time in Las Vegas, July of 2012, the weekend prior to the annual Las Vegas BBW Bash! There will be more details to follow very soon… be guaranteed that I will keep you up to speed on this event as it unfolds… I’m VERY excited!

Here is a random pic from one of the photo shoots we did for the BBW FanFest marketing campaign…Me with Lexxxi Luxe and Ms. Dawn P.

  1. awesome FanFest BBW

  2. I wish I could attend! But alas, I live on the other side of the country. It’s awesome that this convention even exists, though! It’s a shame that size discrimination exists today. I’m all for being more healthy, but skinnier models aren’t necessarily advocating health through their bodies, but rather a disregard for health in order to achieve an arbitrary beauty. But I’m just ranting! I hope BBW Fanfest goes well! =)

  3. I hate the people discriminate other women for his size, the real women have curves, and the real men appreciate curves.

    Overall, one of the reasons many of my sexy antics didnt get put into video form or taken to a strip club (as in, working there) is because of stuff like this. Its been a given that the idea of what makes someone “plus size” is waaay off in places like the clothing industry. Just the other day, it was revealed that Vogue considers a size 6 as “plus size”. No wonder we cant show the world how sexy we are. Nothing “sexy” is ever sized for bbws let alone the average person who may have a small waist and big breasts (or vice versa). Im not exactly sure what body type they really are designing most sexy stuff for these days.

    Getting back on the topic of the adult industry…thier ideals about body type are perpetuated by the aforementioned clothing industry size conventions. Beyond that, the fact that BBW is considered a genre of porn, probably doesnt help us get seen beyond a seperate-but-unequal light. It is a double-ended sword when we BBWs sign up for cam/video clip sites and make ourselves get listed under genres such as “BBW” or “curvy”. Sure, is helps get fat admirers (and other perverts that simply like camgirls with some meat on the bones) but often it also perpetuates the wall that the adult industry puts up on us. Im not sure how we can bridge the gap so that the BBW genre is not just for the chubby-chasers and fat admirers, but also lets us extend beyond the bbw fetish and puts us on more equal footing.
