“BBW Performer of the Year” Finally A Category in Adult Video News Awards

Whether you enjoy porn openly and unashamedly, consider it sinful and/or dirty, or fall somewhere in between, porn is a thriving enterprise and always will be as long as humans have hormones! I personally embrace it and believe that it’s a great way to learn new sex positions and techniques, plus it allows you to scratch a certain itch if your husband is working overtime.

This year was an even bigger year than usual for the porn industry and for curvy girls everywhere; the Adult Video News Awards, AKA the “Oscars of Porn”, introduced a new category called “BBW Performer of the Year”, and the curvaceous April Flores won by a landslide.

“BBW” has long been an abbreviation for “Big, Beautiful Women”, not only in the porn world but on dating and other social networking sites, telling the viewer or reader that the gorgeous woman they’re about to lay eyes on loves her curves and her sexuality and will not apologize for either!

Some have applauded this new category as a way to finally recognize that curves are sexy (GASP!) and some are insulted by the separation from “normal” porn stars. Laura Anne Stuart*, who writes the column SEXPress for the Shepherd Express, an alternative weekly newspaper in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and owns The Tool Shed, an erotic boutique, also in Milwaukee, sums up the controversy; “I have mixed feelings about this new award category. On one hand, I’m glad that the most well-known adult industry awards are recognizing that larger women are sexy and sexual. On the other hand, this probably means that the Best Actress and Female Performer of the Year categories will continue to be won by skinny people with preternaturally large boobs and/or butts rather than people of diverse body types—but that probably would have happened anyway.”

At first I too was insulted by this new category because it branded those with curves as having a different degree of sexy; then I reminded myself that we are different and we’ve damn well earned our right to be recognized as a new breed of sexy!

So, my curvy chicas, whether you’re a porn star or just play one on the weekends, be truly BBBW; “Big, Beautiful, and Bitchin’ Women”!

 

*Since many people are still under the unfortunate misconception that anyone associated with the porn industry must lack self-esteem and be shallow, vain, and uneducated, I wanted to add that Ms Stuart has a master’s degree in public health and has been a sexuality educator for more than 15 years.
