Understanding BBW and Plus-Size Porn

Admittedly, BBW porn is my favorite due to my attraction to thicker and curvier women. And while thick isn’t the same as fat, porn’s often confusing execution of the BBW genre makes it a closer fit to the type of woman I like to see.

BBW porn still isn’t one of the more popular genres in the country, but searches for it have gone up 47% since 2013 according to statistics from Pornhub. While the genre clearly has some way to go before getting widespread acceptance, that clearly shows there is growing interest amongst porn viewers. But what is driving that interest: changing perceptions of beauty, or tolerance for a physical standard in America?


What is BBW porn?

It is probably best to let Urban Dictionary take the steering wheel on finding a definition for “BBW”:

1. A leading term used by many as Big Beautiful Woman.
2. An empowering alternative and politically correct description for the plus size woman as opposed to the derogatory term of Fat.
3. A woman who is over the so called weight standards.

The term is somehow straight-forward and divisive all at once. It’s a great shorthand term to describe a sexy, larger woman. It’s also a term that reduces a girl’s attraction to her size as opposed to allowing her to be hot for hotness’ sake. The second definition is accurate: it’s acknowledgement of a woman’s beauty without calling her “fat”, even though we are still weirdly bringing attention to her being fat.

If you are like me and don’t want to overthink things, then you don’t care about the divisiveness of the term. In reality, we don’t actually use the term to describe girls we see everyday. If we see an attractive woman with size, we’re not going to point her out and call her a “BBW.” We’re simply going to note that we find that woman to be sexy.

The terms “BBW” and “plus-size” are really just used to create a separation between women of different sizes in the adult entertainment and modeling industries. They are categories that allow consumers to get to what they want a lot quicker. It’s a handy filter to comb through an absurd amount of porn, and a more efficient means of directing women to a more proper set of clothing.

But unlike “plus-size”, the term “BBW” also makes a statement about sex, namely, fat chicks are getting dick and some of us dudes would love to be the one dicking them. In the same way we never want to imagine our parents having sex, society doesn’t want to imagine big girls bumping uglies. That’s why we reserve movie sex scenes to the more traditional American beauties, as we’re supposed to believe a character played by Melissa McCarthy isn’t getting any.

And sure, there is BBW porn that fetishizes fatness, introducing elements of food, smothering, and humiliation. But that’s not the BBW porn I’m referring to, even if it does paint of more full composition of how the genre can be treated. I’m referring to the BBW porn knocking down a door Hollywood isn’t fully on board with: fat girls are not only having sex, but that sex looks pretty damn good.


Why is BBW porn popular?

BBW porn kind of mirrors the growth of plus-size modeling in America in that neither is truly mainstream, but we’re a lot more daring in letting the mainstream know about it. Plus-size modeling tells women that it is cool to be comfortable in their bodies and feel sexy. BBW porn tells men it is cool to find larger women sexy, and here is a way to get our fix.

It’s not like men are suddenly switching teams. I applaud our culture for making efforts with body positivity and changing the standards of beauty, but we’re still not as progressive as we want to believe. What I think is happening is those who already have an interest in larger women are a) finally making it known with a bit of a brazen attitude, and b) finally have an outlet.

Pornhub did an awesome heat index showing which parts of the country are responsible for most of the searches for BBW porn. Almost predictably, southern states searched the term 22% more than the rest of the country on average, with the state of Georgia leading with a whopping 41% (my home state making me proud). It’s not as if the popularity of BBW porn is spreading like wildfire. The usual suspects are just having a coming out party.

We also shouldn’t overlook that the average woman in America is, you guessed it, plus-size. The average woman is now a size 16-18 with an average weight of 166.2 lbs. I would consider that below the belt of what a BBW truly is. But when a top site for BBW porn like XL Girls takes the average women and dubs her a “plumper”, it shows BBW porn still provides the nearest depiction of the women we commonly see.

This is important because these depictions present a fantasy that gets the viewer closer to our own reality. Most girls we run into won’t look like Mia Khalifa. But they may very well have a body more like Allie Pearson (minus the massive boobs).


What’s the difference between “BBW” and “Plumper”?

Would you really consider Ashley Graham a BBW or plus-size women? She is thicker than your average model, but I wouldn’t look at her and say she is big. With the exception of someone like Tess Holliday, I don’t think many of the women in plus-size modeling are actually big by societal standards, rather they are big by the standards of their industry.

In porn, Mandy Majestic is a big girl. So is Lexxxi Luxe. And yet, Anastasia Lux and Marcy Diamond get lumped into the same category despite there being a rather obvious visual difference in size.

But that’s the result of not having a mid-class category to place them in. They are either big girls or they are not, and we would find them more comparable to well-known BBW pornstars than a pornstar like AJ Applegate. In reality, Anastasia and Marcy are plumpers.

There is no set metric to differentiate between BBW’s and plumpers. That’s why the adult entertainment industry can bring them all together and barely get questioned for it. Understanding the difference is genuinely as simple as knowing it when you see it.


Who are the popular BBW porn stars?

Here are five of the top BBW porn stars to watch, whether you need a reminder or a starting point for your search:

Kimmie Kaboom

kimmie kaboom plumper passA MILF sporting some of the best boobs in BBW porn, the multiple BBWCON and Biggie Award winner has been on fire the past couple of years, quickly becoming one of the more established models in the genre.

Klaudia Kelly

klaudia kelly plumper pass“Thick as hell with generous curves.” This is a comment from a member on /Plumper Pass/, and it is honestly the best way to describe Klaudia Kelly. We have nothing more to add.

Lexxxi Luxe

lexxxi luxe plumper passWith 38P breasts, Lexxxi Luxe more than lives up to the tagline of having the biggest boobs in BBW porn, and maybe even the biggest boobs in porn, period.

Mazzaratie Monica

Sashaa Juggs

What are the top BBW porn sites?

Not a lot to choose from, so we’re only highlighting three. In alphabetical order:

1. Jeff’s Models: All of the scenes feel the same, so it is difficult for any girl or video to stand out. But one thing Jeff’s Models does have working for it is a more amateur feel, almost as though it is made for the truest of BBW lovers. And while the scenes look like they are filmed in a similar manner, there is plenty of variety with the action and the ladies involved. Hopefully the site continues to grow in popularity and quality.

2. Plumper Pass: Probably the most well-known of the BBW pay sites. While it tends to focus on a defined pool of models for stretches of time, it also features the best collection of BBW models in porn and it isn’t close. Every model is a hit. With high-quality videos and photos and the best hardcore action you will find, Plumper Pass is probably the immediate go-to for BBW content.

3. XL Girls: Score Cash is more known for their site Scoreland, so while not being the most well-known of BBW sites, XL Girls is the best. It combines the best parts of the two previously listed sites: bringing established BBW models and new models in one place. XL Girls also has solo scenes for those who aren’t interested in seeing someone else’s dick get to work. It’s a truly well-rounded site with something for everyone.
