I have always enjoyed dressing up. There is something about putting on makeup and doing my hair that can usually lift me out of a small funk. But that is not exactly what I mean about enjoying dressing up. I enjoy putting on a sexy or a slutty outfit and using it as an invitation for happy playtime with the hubby. (Alright, I will admit, even just for myself from time to time). There is just something about putting on a sexy outfit that makes me hot.
Rarely does an outfit contain items I purchased specifically for sexual play. Oh, I own a few corsets, g-strings, and the like. However, most of my outfits are made up of articles I still wear out on a semi-regular basis, such as sexy heels, knee high boots, and thigh-high stockings. There are some parts that I purchased with other purposes in mind that have since become a part of my sexy dress-up drawer, like the long gloves I originally bought for my wedding (I later decided to not wear them for the big day) and a white cotton blouse that is too tight for outside the bedroom (but perfect for dressing like a school girl or secretary).
The dressing up part is fun; however, it is just the beginning. With the right outfit I can go from being a wife to being someone entirely different. The outfit sets the mood for what is to come. The only limitations are our imaginations.
It seems to me that whenever I read an erotica story where the female is not a size 6, she is referred to as big or needing to lose weight. I just finished a story tonight where the main character was a size 14 and her co-workers had told her that she should go to the gym and that is why she didn’t have a man in her life. But when she mentions it to the man, he says how he loves her curves and that she has a brain. And of course, being a bigger size means that she has big boobs and a big ass which is not always the case either.
But in reality, is a size 14 that big? In checking it on the Internet, Marilyn Monroe was likely a size 8 or 10 in today’s clothing sizes (see link at end of rant from Snopes). But she was considered a huge sex symbol. Is a 14 all that much bigger than what she was? And of course, in her movies, she was dressed to accent her curves and show herself off.
For the most part, the woman’s size really should not be a factor in these books. Shouldn’t the focus be more on her curves and how they drive their potential partner wild? How about the tricks that she has up her sleeves and how she can turn her partner into someone who cannot even remember their name or how to breathe? To me, that is more important than what a characters dress or jeans size.
Heck, I have even found a series of erotica books on Amazon that are a BBW series but the characters size is a 14 or 16. To me, that isn’t BBW, that is the average North American Woman.
