View Full Version : to the 18-22 crowd...
11-02-2005, 11:17 PM
I recently turned 20 and am becoming increasingly aware of the people around my age that are members here. A lot of the time, I find myself questioning where my sexual preference for the more rotund came from. I feel like it was from cartoons and things I saw (Willy Wonka being a large part) but 85% of the people my age saw that growing up and it didn't affect them the same way. Did I latch on to the image of a girl growing into a bigger, rounder shape because my potential for attraction was already there?
I'm getting off track. The point is, to all the people my age (18-22 crowd), what is it that you experienced as a younger person growing up in the 80's that turned you on to larger figures? What turned you into the FA or FFA you are today? The older people here mention Pis is Pigs at great length, but I never saw that as a kid. Was it something in the media arts, or was it something you personally experienced? Come on, people, I want some insight!

ever since i was aware that i liked girls, i was aware that i liked the fat ones. i did a c|net (remember c|net? they were awesome, until disney bought them!) search and started finding websites about fat girls. that's pretty much it, honestly. no defining moment.

There was this girl in my 6th grade class who was heavy and I thought her size and long hair were pretty. Nothing really media involved influenced my preferences as far as I can tell

Well I have memories of big girls in my classes, but I think I really started my FA life when I saw Hairspray. Ricki Lake absolutly fascinated me. :wubu:

I think it was subliminal, but I do not place it with those cartoons or movies. I started out liking any girls, but then it slowly morphed into the bigger girls. Can;t really say why or how, but it just evolved into that, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

i remember being younger and thoroughly enjoying the willy wonka thinger(the whole movie, but that part in particular) and "pigs is pigs" was actually embedded at an early age. i remember growing up and seeing enormous ladies and thinking "why do people think that's so bad?" i actually remember(vividly) a girl in my second grade class whom i thought was cute, and i remember thinking to myself "she'd be way cuter if she was fat." i don't think the media swayed me towards liking big women as much as it tried to steer me towards seeing them as "unattractive". good job, media...you get an F for the day.

I really don't know if I can pinpoint a specific occasion as to when I became an FA. No images really have implanted themselves into my head... Never watched Willy Wonka until high school (yeah yeah, I was movie-deprived... no Wizard of Oz, no Alice in Wonderland, none of the common kid movies). Actually, the first time I noticed myself taking a long eye-full of a fat woman was the summer of '99, when I went on vacation to Niagra Falls with my brothers and current sister-in-law. Something about that trip just stays with me, like something significant changed about me. I've never been able to figure what specifically changed even though I came home feeling like a different person. However, there was one woman I remember standing next to as we gazed out over the falls for the first time... She was huge! She had on this big green dress, but she had to have been approaching 6' tall (I won't venture a guess at weight, since I'm not used to that). Anyway, I just remember that I kept telling myself not to stare, because I knew that was rude... and yet, I ended up looking at the sandals on her feet instead, and for some reason even her feet seemed to interest me. They were so small it was as if the sandals were ready to fall apart from the strain, yet obviously that did not happen. Curious thing though... they followed us, the fat lady and I assume her husband, for a good portion of the day. Not on purpose, just ending up wherever we were... So I kept getting chances to look again.
I remember going into high school in the fall with a completely different eye for girls... But strange thing is, I never acted on it. Never even had a girlfriend until Junior year, which I almost don't even count. The first one I really consider serious enough was February of 2004, my senior year. I certainly did not let my FA-ness appear.
