Fat women in burlesque

Fat women in burlesque

In a culture that stigmatizes fat women and relegates their sexuality to invisibility, fat burlesque offers an opportunity to experience fatness as a sensuous subjectivity. – Lacy Asbill

For your viewing pleasure, a saucy video of some raucously entertaining and inspiring women who show sexy comes in every size. Video courtesy of the National Sexuality Resource Center.

It’s so great to see a bevy of full-figured gals challenging old and tired stereotypes of what is and what isn’t “beautiful and sexy.”
