I recently discovered Bevin Branlandingham (aka the Queer Fat Femme) via a post she published at the Frisky, entitled, “7 Ways to Be a Good Ally to Your Fat Lover” — a wonderful read. An excerpt:
‘I learned this body affirming practice where anytime you say something critical about a body part you immediately respond with an apology and a gratitude: “I’m sorry, tummy, for talking shit about you. I am so grateful to you for being so soft and comfortable.” Something like that.
I was thinking that if I was having a hard time with a part of my body it would be awesome for my partner to give it some extra TLC. Kisses, sweet talk, a massage, etc…’
The rest of the post is just as empowering and loving. I recommend you take a look.
Also! The folks at DieForHer.com (specifically ARH) have written a wonderful review of Femme Fatale: Erotic Tales of Dangerous Women, entitled, “Femme Fatale: Bedside Reading fot the Disposable Male.” Thank you kindly, DieForHer. We love how the review gives some favorite quotes from the collection and also notes that Femme Fatale isn’t only for women and female-identified readers — sex-positive men can enjoy it too. What’s more, if you’re into femme fatale fetishes, do check out the (not always NSFW) DieForHer site.
