9780825307751: Fat Sex: The Naked Truth (Fat Books)

If there are two subjects that are universally fascinating and rife with controversy, they are sex and fat. Though our culture is obsessed with both, the two commingling are sometimes seen as offensive, obscene, or even grotesque. Fat people are not viewed as sexual beings. Of course, this perception is far from accurate. Fat people have normal and peculiar sex lives, just like everyone else. A compilation of true stories, cultural references, and narrative commentary, Fat Sex: The Naked Truth, tells the honest, and often heroic, heartbreaking, and hilarious experiences of large-size women and men in their romantic, intimate, and sexual relationships. Subjects touched on include heterosexual relationships, gay men and lesbian women, those who have gained and lost a great deal of weight, and the sexual “underground” such as fetishes. Although the people portrayed in Fat Sex: The Naked Truth sometimes face bigotry and experience shame―they are often valiant and live remarkably fulfilling lives. The stories are compelling and told with sensitivity and wit, connecting people on profoundly important aspects of their lives. This book is not just for large-size people. The stories and issues discussed touch all of us, each and every person who has ever experienced the trials and tribulations, as well as the ecstasies, of intimate relationships.

About the Author :

Rebecca Jane Weinstein is the author of three books including Fat Kids: Truth and Consequences, part of the Fat Books series. She has also written for numerous national publications. Rebecca is the founder of PeopleOfSize.com, an online community and social networking site which provides information, support, and interaction for people of size. An attorney and social worker with a masters degree focusing on clinical therapy, Rebecca has been working as an advocate and writer for nearly twenty years. She is considered an expert on the subject matter of weight and culture. Rebecca shares her own experiences of being a fat child, and now a fat adult, having been put on her first diet at age six. She understands the struggles that so many experience living in a world with a war on fat. More information can be found at RebeccaJaneWeinsteinWriter.com.

Review :

"Despite its jump-off-the-page title, Fat Sex: The Naked Truth is much more of a pleasant surprise than a shocking one.... Fat Sex's greatest charm is its heartbreaking relatability." - The Portland Phoenix

"'Fat Sex': Real talk beyond the popular perceptions" - The Today Show

"Rebecca Weinstein delivers a heartfelt, informative page-turner" - Mark Ebner, Journalist and NY Times best selling author

"Fat Sex affirms what I have known intuitively all along -- women of all sizes and shapes are sexy, passionate, desirable creatures with romantic and sexual lives." - Adios Barbie

"Everyone deserves to feel love and to have good sex. We're glad to see this conversation continue.... We only get one body. If we don't love ourselves and treat ourselves well, who will?" - Yahoo! TV

"Rebecca Jane Weinstein sets it straight with her new book, Fat Sex: The Naked Truth.... She also offers the truth -- which is that lots of fat people have lots of great sex." - iVillage
