Pleasure At Any Size

This blog post, Ten Rules for Fat Girls, has a bunch of excellent advice on maintaining a positive body image even faced with the stressful and negative messages aimed at overweight people. I like how the writer emphasizes: “Touch yourself.  You’re not gross… Often because we are heirs to such body shame, we avoid getting to know our flesh.” This is a really excellent point, and one that we as sex bloggers would like to restate: everyone at every size should be acquainted with their bodies, know what feels good, and know how to pleasure themselves. Because if you don’t, who will?
