Sex & Porn Glossary
The term was first used by Carole Shaw in 1979 when she launched BBW Magazine.
BBW and Fat Fetishism
Although the term BBW was first used as the name of a fashion and lifestyle magazine for plus-sized women, it has since gained many more uses. In general, BBW is a euphemism for overweight women. It's a term used by all and is generally regarded in a positive light and not as derogatory. You will often times see women describing themselves this way in settings like online dating and personal ads such as on Craigslist.
BBW in terms of sex and pornography has to do with the attraction to women that are indeed both big and beautiful. Although fairly reserved compared to other fetishes in porn, BBW films are certainly not a niche and something that appeals to only a specific group of people. There are no set requirements when it comes to defining a BBW. It's something that is very subjective, and the people being labeled can range from slightly overweight to very obese. It's not like if you get under 300 lbs, all of a sudden, the fat police will come and take away your BBW status.
One of the top adult studios geared towards BBW style films is Sensational Video. Their series, Hot Sexy Plumpers, has 38 volumes and is a must see for viewers just starting out in BBW.
plumper, curvy, fatty, chubby, whale, full-figured, voluptuous, SSBBW (super size BBW)
It should be noted that while all of these words can be used to describe the same person, using BBW is a much friendlier term that will most likely result in a better experience for all parties involved.
