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? 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.

an excellent post!
it always infuriates me when i hear people putting larger ladies down, no wonder so many of them lack confidence when in reality they're so very beautiful.

I, myself am a larger woman. I think I am beautiful and love my curves. Anyone who cannot see this for themselves does not understand nor appreciate the beauty in women. Every part of my body is real, I don't need artificial enhancement to love myself or to have others love me. Thank you for your article!

Thank you, adamantixx. It seems to me that different body sizes come in and out of fashion at different times. Fifty years ago starlets had meat on their bones, but not as much today. There's so much pressure to be too thin, and airbrushing photos doesn't help any. Thanks for visiting my blog. Feel free to hang out any time.

Hi, Bri. I'm glad you posted here. I hope that in time the public will realize that beautiful women come in all sizes. You don't have to be a stick-thin supermodel to be considered beautiful. Thank you for your comment and for dropping by. Feel free to hang out here. I have lots of interesting things to say about sex and erotica.

That is so degrading and mean. I understand everyone has their preferences, but even if you don't like bigger women like that there is no reason to belittle them. I'm sure he's no Johnny Depp but he's so busy pointing out perceived flaws in other women. He probably has a small dick or something...that insecurity and hostility has to come from somewhere.

I read your story in Ultimate Curves just last night and loved it! Great to hear where you got your inspiration from. My story is in there too, "The Lucky Man."

"Butter!"~~I cannot help thinking of the Jewish/Yiddish connotation to this phrase...Such a compliment, which can be used for hefty woman, as well as bean-poles amongst us.

Each person, man & woman, are to be cherished.
Beauty, is far from skin-deep..at times, the beholder
narrows their view. This only causes trouble, of course.
Everyone confronts a mirror.

I loved this post, Trish.

Looking forward to reading your story, too, Lucy. And thanks for the great comment, Abe.

One cannot escape from the fact that different people prefer different shaped bodies, and that, consequently, some men prefer a thin look. Don't think for a moment, however, that there aren't just as many who prefer curves (whether subtle or not so subtle); the difference seems to be that rather more of those who prefer thin arrogantly think that their personal preferences are universal and that anyone who does not conform to them is ugly in a more general sense, or deserves derision.

I, along with many others, happen to find curves very attractive, but I do not have any particular desire to call thin people ugly - there are plenty of people who find them attractive, too.

I am a larger size woman and proud of it. I wear clothes that suit my weight and makes me still look neat. I can not stand heavier women who tries to dress like they are wearing a size 4..know what I mean.I also believe beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. susan L.
