The Beautiful Move In Curves/Ultimate Curves - New From Xcite



In honor of my story "The Beautiful Move In Curves" getting released, I made an earlier post about big, beautiful women. Head on over, read, and comment.

http://tinyurl.com/ox5wck

My short story "The Beautiful Move In Curves" appears now in the Xcite anthology "Ultimate Curves". This book is about big, beautiful women and the men and women who love them.

My title comes from the saying "In life, as in art, the beautiful move in curves", by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton. Here is a blurb about "The Beautiful Move In Curves":

Olivia Taylor is a gorgeous and large woman who is angry over an article about "butterbodies" - women with beautiful faces "butterbody" leaves something to be desired. This is the flip side of "butterface". The idiot who wrote the article called Salma Hayek a "butterbody." If some moron can diss Salma Hayek, what does that say about Olivia? She cannot be in a bad mood before attending the SF/F convention, especially since she's going to meet Jeremy, a gorgeous hunk of a man several years her junior. There is more than enough woman in Liv to please several men, and she has the spunk and sex appeal to prove it.

Big, Beautiful Women



I read a very irritating article at Spike.com a few months ago where the author (a man) complained about women he called "butterbodies", which according to the Urban Dictionary is "very much like a Butterface, only it pertains to a girl with a very pretty face and an overweight body." This was not a good thing. It was a riff on the term "butterface", which was the opposite – a woman with a hot and sexy body but a two-bagger for a face. Although the article has since been taken down (probably in some part due to most of the commenters calling the author a dickhead), plenty of people had lots to say about it, and none of it was good. Here's a quote from the original article describing exactly what a butterbody is:

"The true definition of a butterbody is a woman who has a beautiful face but a body that’s gone to butter. It’s like the butterface, but in reverse. If you are rich and famous, there is no excuse for being a butterbody. It’s your job to look fit and hot. Celebrities are not like normal people. They have the means to pay for a full time trainer and for someone to prepare their meals."

The moron who wrote this article went on to describe seven famous women he felt were these horrid butterbodies, including Salma Hayek, Liv Tyler, and Tyra Banks. For Heaven's sake, at the time the article was written Salma Hayek had just had a baby! The other two were not in the least bit fat but they were getting older, which apparently according to this moron was also not a good thing for women. This is the mindset that says that women are meant to be prepped, molded, and packaged for men's pleasure. Once they reach their sell-by date, junk them for a better model. Heaven forbid a woman weigh more than 100 pounds sopping wet.

There are plenty of women who have curves who are very sexy. Nigella Lawson and America Ferrera come to mind (note: Ferrera also made the Butterbodies list). Ferrera has made a living creating characters who are intelligent, passionate, sexy, and curvy. Rent "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" and "Real Women Have Curves" sometime and check her out for yourself. While obesity is a problem around the world, Hollywood and fashion magazines promote an unhealthy too-thin version of beautiful that most women simply cannot achieve. Some men and women are rejecting this artificial ideal, referring to the too-thin chic as looking like "a bag of antlers" or as having "sharp knees".

If you are in the market for some erotic fiction about big, beautiful women, there is plenty to find. The book "Ultimate Curves", published by Xcite Press, is about big and beautiful women. It was just released in August. My short story "The Beautiful Move In Curves" appears in this book. The title comes from a saying by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton: "In life, as in art, the beautiful move in curves." Here is a blurb about my story. As you can see, I was influenced by that butterbodies article.

Olivia Taylor is a gorgeous and large woman who is angry over an article about "butterbodies" - women with beautiful faces "butterbody" leaves something to be desired. This is the flip side of "butterface". The idiot who wrote the article called Salma Hayek a "butterbody." If some moron can diss Salma Hayek, what does that say about Olivia?
