You may remember that I’m often surprised to see that so many people hit this blog not because of orgasm denial, chastity devices, or even general kinkiness, but because of a few posts of mine lauding the sexiness of Marina Sirtis. Indeed, it’s a rare day that Ms. Sirtis is not on one of the top 10 searches for those who land here.
Seriously, I write dozens of posts about female domination, orgasm denial, kinky sex, or some weird fetish, and Google ignores me. But just a couple of posts in which I rant about some women who are sexy, despite not being a size 2 or under, and suddenly I’m ranked. Life is funny that way.
Anyway, while I’m on the subject of plus sized models, the other day V Magazine (one of those exclusive fashion mags that showcase clothing that costs almost as much as my first car) took the cue from Glamour Magazine and the several other magazines which have done this, and launched their own campaign of plus-sized models. And while I’m imagining an editorial board jumping on the trendy bandwagon a la Zoolander, I’m quite pleased at the photos that have been released in advance of the publication of The Size Issue.
But before we go on to ogle the women presented here, we should cover a few points.
One is that despite being called “plus size” models, they are still smaller than the average woman in the US or UK. The models in the photo shoot range from size 8 to size 12, which in real terms, simply means that they have a body fat percentage that just allows them to float when they go for a swim. Most women walking around are closer to a size 16; while these models are closer in size to the average woman, they still are not totally representative.
Another point is that the women pictured here are incredibly attractive. That’s because they are models. Models, of course, not only have particularly symmetrical features, they also have a team of people to style their hair, apply makeup, adjust the lighting, fuss with the poses, and to fetch their orange mocha frappachinos. Anybody that has ever seen “glamour shots” of non-models can attest to the eye-enhancing power of good makeup and proper lighting.
And while we are drooling appreciating these models, let’s remember that we like what we like, and that it’s perfectly alright if some people are turned off by a muffin top, just the way that some people are turned off by women that look breakable in a good romp. In fact, let’s all go a bit further and try to learn to appreciate the infinite variety in the human form, and to find not just the physical, but the inherent, inner beauty.
