Seeing certified sex educator, body acceptance and pleasure advocate Elle Chase at the recent ANME Founders trade show was a good reminder to make sure you know about her terrific book, "Curvy Girl Sex: 101 Body-Positive Positions to Empower Your Sex Life."
On her website www.ElleChase.com, Chase states that the book "...celebrates the sexuality of curvy women everywhere and is the first book of its kind to hit the market. Curvy/plus-sized women are constantly de-sexualized in media and advertising, leading many to feel they aren’t sexy or have the right to be sexual. Nothing could be farther from the truth! This book aims to not just dole out sex positions, but to empower everyone who identifies as curvy, large, zaftig or fat regardless of gender expression and sexual identity , to take delight in sex, sex toys, and learn more about pleasure anatomy, consent and even erotica!. I wholeheartedly believe that anyone who considers their body to be outside society’s idea of the aspirational body type, will find this book not just liberating and empowering, but will come away with the feeling that they have permission to create and enjoy a fulfilling sex life"
"Curvy Girl Sex" is beautifully and explicitly illustrated by Jenn St.-Onge Kimmy Hutchinson, and punctuated with gorgeously cheeky photographs of model April Flores by Nick Holmes.
Reviews are predictably positive and many point out that much of the advice in the book is applicable regardless of body size.
Frankly, Elle's super-sex positive energy is contageous. Even if you aren't a "curvy girl," even if you are a man, even a gay man, you might consider reading her book just to be more enlightened about body positivity, female sexuality and sexuality in general.
Wonder if there's a counterpart in the works for hefty hunks? Hmm.
