I knew going into Fat Sex Week XXL it would be longer than a regular week. I've learned as part of my body liberation that even though the world is not built for someone who is a size 22/24 that I still deserve to take up as much space as I need.* And the same is true for my art projects that are called a "week" but really more like "two and a half weeks." FAT SEX WEEK XXL sounds way better than FAT SEX TWO AND A HALF WEEKS OR SO XXL. Thanks for indulging my artistic liberties.
Oh, dear readers, I had such a wonderful and peaceful holiday weekend. I hope you did as well.
I’ve also been getting some really incredible fan letters lately. I am so grateful that my blog and podcast and tea basket episodes bring so many people joy. I try to write everyone back, but if I’ve missed it thank you very much for your kind words. And to everyone, thanks for reading! It is so nice to have such an incredible audience.
I made a little end of the year playlist to say thank you and hopefully get some more people laid. My tips on how to find people to have gay sex with you actually worked for the person who asked the advice from the post already, so hopefully it will work for you, too.
This playlist is called 90s R&B Automatic Make Out Music and celebrates R&B from the 90s, that golden era of grind* when I first learned how to make-out. I feel that this is the perfect kind of music to get your party going. It’s dancey but doesn’t require dancing. It’s good chat while maintaining a rhythmic bounce sort of music and it’s also the tipping point for any conversation that could go to the make-out place to actually go to the make-out place. Before each Rebel Cupcake I have the DJ play a mix of 90s R&B and riot grrrl favorites and I have seen many pre-11PM dance party make-outs/bumps & grinds. Dim the lights and experiment with this playlist. You’ll be hosting a make out party in no time.
My friends went to great lengths to coordinate the creation of this surprise cake for my birthday. A hearty thank you to Sarah Jenny, Heather and crew, and to Andre and his helpers for baking and decorating it.
The playlist requires Spotify, which is free and easy to use and contains most of the songs you might want to listen to at any time. I found Spotify daunting at first but as more of my friends used it to share playlists with each other and spy on their music listening habits I thought it was fun and embraced it.
I am back this week with a cool new blog benefactor and the remainder of the great GAY SEX WEEK that was thwarted by my insane flu of October 2011.
