Never mind the stick-thin standard of female beauty that many people adhere to—join us as we sing the praises of full-figured women.
There is a specific body type that is often expected of women in America if they are to be sexually desired: small. Yep, if ladies want to be oohed and ahhed at, many people contend that they need to be a petite specimen of womanhood—fit, toned and tight in all the right places.
Which is odd, isn’t it? After all, the population has, by and large, adopted a “bigger is better” philosophy. It’s keen on wolfing down Big Macs and large fries with a Mega Chug chaser. But when it comes to a woman’s body, America typically appreciates those who keep it lean and mean. Guys presumably don’t want to roll around naked with anything that’s larger than the kind of socially acceptable emaciation that warrants a sad song by Sarah McLachlan. They want those skinny chicks, man! Size zero.
But, come on, people, this notion of America being a one-size-fits-all kind of nation is as much an illusion as it is a heaping load of crap. Contrary to the bantamweight babes the fashion magazines have employed for decades to define the picture-perfect model of attractiveness, plenty of dudes—and more than you might think—would rather have a lady with a little meat on her bones. If you ask these fans of the fuller-figured femme, these lovely ladies are more than deserving of our attention—in and out of the bedroom. So, go ahead and give those guys a chubby.
