The Round World: Life at the Intersection of Love, Sex, and Fat

Sale price$20.95


In a society where fat-shaming is encouraged, it may be hard to imagine that someone could adore your fat body. And if you find fat attractive, acknowledging your sexual desires can feel like an uphill battle against what's "normal." But obesity doesn't have to mean indignity. Drawing on his personal experiences as a "chubby chaser," as well as the stories of people who are fat and sexually fulfilled, Dan Oliverio discusses the process of making peace with your body and your desires.

The Round World is the first book to explore obesity from the perspective of the people who find it erotic and seek fat people as romantic partners. In a personal and conversational style, Oliverio discusses existing prejudices against and medical issues around people of size, obesity, kink, and general fat acceptance. With humor and practicality, The Round World provides a primer on loving yourself as you are--fat or not.
