    The beauty of a fat body

    Shop Now
    We all know what is considered beautiful has changed throughout history and in different cultural settings, and even in our time some people consider a very curvy, some would say fat body, to be more beautiful than a lean, so who can then claim that the more mainstream ideal of worshipping leanness is the only possible from an aesthetical point of view?

    So this thread is dedicated to those that can appreciate the aesthetical beauty and formfullness of a fat body without any moralizing:

    I think that those women to me look deformed. They look like they can't move and be active. I can't call that attractive or beautiful. Just like I think skeletal women look awful. It's almost like they are disfigured.

    To me, those women are not curvy, they are lumpy.

    Fat =/= obese

    Those women are obese, and the standard for beauty changes at that level.

    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    Did anyone really expect that one of our resident misogynists was going to post anything resembling pretty fat girls?

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Huzzah!!!
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Can't seem to load the attachment, but I'm not certain I want to.

    What's attractive is money. Or, to be more accurate, success. In the days of much physical activity, being overweight meant you didn't have to do that and were thus more successful. These days of low physical activity a lean body means success (costs more to eat healthy, etc).

    That's a very broad view. Individual preferences factor in, too. I always figured fetishism was a meta-genetic way of a species keeping genes around that may be useful in the future.

    Also, side fact: Current thinking on the Venus of Willendorf is less appreciating fatty women and might actually be a pregnancy thing. The more you know and whatnot.
