Are you feeling down, low, sad, lonely, lacking in happiness and needing a tiny little boost to get you through that last patch of Friday and boost you into the weekend? Are you feeling cynical, hateful, sure that the world is bigoted and there are no positive, body-friendly messages left on earth and that everyone wants you to hide asexually in a closet somewhere while science figures out a way to airbrush a living human being into a creature with no creases or crinkles?
I say: Fret no longer, and smile big and wide, because plus-size pinup and pornstar (or “muse, model and erotic performer”) April Flores is posing sexy (and in an unsafe-for-work manner) in this covershoot video for Bizarre magazine. This is her second time on the cover–and her first appearance was the magazine’s best-selling issue last year. She is hot, sexual, and she’s awesome, too.
When a recent piece in US porn trade magazine AVN [was insulting to] big girls…April spoke out. She posted a blog articulating her dismay, and a Twitter update titled, “This fat girl’s pissed off.”
She was delighted at the tidal wave of support she received. “I didn’t expect such a strong reaction from people who clearly feel passionate about their body size,” she says. “I also got a big response from men who are dating or married to bigger girls who were also highly offended.
I did it to vent and to say ‘Hey, this isn’t cool’ but I didn’t expect to get such a reaction.” Support also came from others in the adult industry, “A lot of skinny girls wrote to me – Kimberley Kane supported me and wrote to them also, and I got a comment from Stoya saying ‘good for you.’”
April points out that by attacking big girls, the magazine was badmouthing all women. She says, “These days you can’t be so degrading to women and not expect people to call you on it.”
Check out her interview (probably also unworksafe) for the magazine here, and her definitely not safe for work blog here. And I’ll be over here wishing I had a nickname as awesome as “Fatty Delicious.”
