I am in the process of writing a fictional book about bbws and our lives. The book will be multi-facet and not just be a sterotypical "fat lonely girl book". I am striving to have a book that enlightens people about our lives and our struggle. I want this book to speak to all people no matter the size, shape, color, gender, or etc. I would like some ideas as to what you all think I should have in the book as well. Let me know what you guys think. Your oppinions are definitely welcomed. There is gonna definitely be things in the about men in the phat closet. If you have ever been a man in this situtation or a woman who has had a man like this please tell me about it. I also want to know guys why you like bbws so much. I realize there is very little literature for plus size women that is uplifting. I am striving to be a pioneer in this particular genre. Everyone lets make this blog informative.

@Pink: It would be interesting to have dynamic characters about our struggles. You really working that pic girl! @lawsy: I think the book will take more of a fictional approach. Now I am doing a lot of reading about how fuller figures were more appreciated and when it stopped. I am very interested in what you think. Please give me more feedback in depth. @Tarrbaby: Thanks I looked on amazon and I found a good bit of books on there. I want this book to dig deep and have dynamic characters. I do not just want characters that are one dimensional. I would love tons and tons of feed back on what you all would like to read. Any suggestions?

I just finished reading a book where the main character was plus-sized (size sixteen is plus-sized?) and was dated and fallen in love with by a professional athlete. The book was a good idea, but the plot was thin, lacked depth, the dialogue wasn't that compelling and the characters were pretty one dimensional. It was a good diversion, though. It didn't really take on any of the issues typical big girls have to endure. When was the last time anybody ever saw one of us on the red carpet with an A-Lister? Anyway, check out Amazon or some of the other big book sellers. They have a lot of big girl and big guy literature.


The cruelest lies are often told in silence.

I think it's a great idea for a book and I'm interested what form it'll take.  Self-help? Fiction? Psychology?  History of BBW and the men who love them? There's certainly a lot of historical material out there to give you a foundation.  A lot of Renaissance, Baroque, and Flemish painting featured larger, voluptuous women, which back then was considered the ideal body form for a woman.  Of hand, I can't think of any literature that features a BBW heroine, or even the object of the male hero's affection. 

I think there's a wealth of sources right here in the website about the men who are attracted to larger women and why -- if you can get any of them to talk frankly about it.  I think that men who are in the Phat Closet (me?) have an inner sexual attraction to BBW that they can't exactly reconcile with their outward self.  Perhaps the same sort of personal dichotomy that some white women have for black men.  I won't do it here, but if you're interested in what I think let me know.

Anyway, good luck.

@ fox: Wow! U gave me a great idea. I can definitely agree that plus size youung people definitely need to have something to identify with. I was in her shoes so it would be very easy for me to write a book about some of the lessons I have learned. U have to love who you are. This is not easy when society is telling us that we should not love ourselves before we lose a significant amount of weight. I am not promoting an unhealthy lifestyle. The truth is most of us will never be in single digits. I know that rings true for me. I will be writing a book to help your grand daughter and all the other beautiful children out there know that is great being them. @ Nerdyguy: Thanks hun! The "phat closet" is what I describe as a man who likes big women but they are too afraid to freely admit it. I have met tons of guys who are like this. They like big women in the bedroom but they will never take her out. I hope that cleared up that question. I would like to tell you congratulations. That is awesome that you found someone that you like and have been seeing them for 8 months. U go Boy!

Good luck. What is the "phat closet?" Is that like that other "closet" that people sometimes mention? I don't see how a guy can keep being "phat" a secret though. I've actually gone on dates with a few women from this site and started two relationships. One of those relationships is still going strong after 8 months. Once you weed out the fake profiles this site isn't too bad.
