7 Plus Size Sex Tips

1. Forget about Being Self Conscious

Plus-size sex is hot sex. Too many people who are overweight deny themselves great sex because they are self conscious. Have a realistic attitude about real life bodies—yours, and your lovers.

Understand that all people are sexual, not just those who are young enough, fit enough, thin enough, muscular enough, or able bodied. Look around you on the bus or in the food court. Almost everyone you see is a sexual human being. Enjoy it.

2. Use Pillows and Props for Support

Find creative ways to make various positions work for you or your partner.

Pillows, wedges, and other support props work wonders—not just for plus-size sex—when one lover is tall and the other short, for people with joint troubles or injuries, and for anyone really. Changing an angle with a pillow can mean new sensations or deeper penetration or lasting longer.

3. Candid Honesty is Important

Be practical when discussing your size and weight or your partner’s when it comes to plus-size sex. You don’t need to ignore the facts, brush over it, divert attention, or pretend it is something else, to be “polite.”

Plus-size sex warrants the same pragmatic, honest approach to sex as any other kinds of bodies. You don’t have to go out of your way to point out a larger sized body part or any wiggle or jiggle, but there’s no need to pretend what’s there is not there.

If you need to discuss comfort, angles, fit, or anything about your body or your partner’s body, afford the topics your candor and acknowledgement. It’s okay to say “I’m not comfortable leaning this way because my stomach is in the way and hurts like that.” It’s okay to say “I’m not able to reach you from here.”

4. Respect Limits

Plus-size sex is the same as any other kind of sex—whether bodies are tall or short, skinny or fat, fit or feeble, young or old, you and your partner have unique needs and limitations.

Don’t force someone who is plus size to fit into a skinny paradigm. Respect yourself and your partner, whether slim or plus size, and respect the physical limits, needs, and desires, of every lover.
