I am fighting the urge to be flip and say because I can

sometimes it is a whim, sometimes I genuinely like the picture and when I first found dimms it was a revelation that people would enjoy any of my pics

I go through phases of wanting to post new pics and not wanting to but it also depends on what has been happening and how much time I have or if I am in a playful mood

I think the phrase if youve got it flaunt it seems to fit dims well and I also love seeing everyones pics and drooling over pretty and sexy clothes and lingerie and the like as well

it is a way to celebrate who I am, (oh god that sounds so up myself)

I usually post pics because I want to it isnt always about the attention and compliments (they are nice though and sometimes a nice boost on a down day)

erm and on saying all this I realise I have not posted a new pic in quite some time .....................

I don't post revealing photos because I'm not comfortable having all that on the internet, you know in case I want to be President or something. I work in a very conservative environment.

Also, and this is just my personal issue - I developed really early and I've always had an EXTREMELY feminine and womanly appearance. It was particularly bad when I was a teen because I looked much older and was often propositioned by older men. Now, I think part of my reluctance to "show off" my body comes from that. I don't want to be seen as (I'm really uncomfortable with the idea of being seen as) a sex object by anyone except the person I'm sexing.

I like feeling appreciated. It's is very rare that I get a compliment like the ones I get on here in the world of crappy UK. FA's are a commodity and therefore if you're a larger woman you're basically seen as ugly and disgusting and that gives everyone the right to hurl abuse at you.

So I come here, I've come out of my shell, and I post some piccies of myself and I get lovely compliments from you people that always makes my day better.

For me and probably a lot of women (and men) who post pictures - it can be very liberating and a HUGE confidence booster to know that there actually are people who do not conform to the everyday media view on what is beautiful and acceptable.

In everyday life, i do not wear low cut tops, skirts or revealing clothing - i cover up - even my arms - i always wear long sleeves or a cardigan to cover my bingo wings!

Coming to sites like this and posting photos makes me smile - to realise you are actually more than "ok" and actually quite attractive.

I used to know a photographer - he took the majority of the photos that i have posted so far, mainly because i think i look my best in them and have receive lovely comments from them in the past and i am proud of them because he has captured me looking, what i consider, my best.

......plus im a bit of a show off

This is totally me right now, I really wish it wasn't, but it is. I just haven't had many admirers & so my thoughts when some one says they find a part of me attractive (particularly 1 that I may find to be more offensive then attractive) , I wonder what they want from me. f'd up, I know, but that is how I feel.

Maybe that makes me conceited and/or egotistical...but I just think it's fun.

I think it also has a lot to do with the way you feel about your body as larger person. Speaking for me, I grew up a fat kid with fat parents...specifically a fat mother who did not like her body and made no secret of the fact that she disliked the way she looked. Well, everyone always told she and I as I grew up (and out) that I looked just like her. She did everything she could to discourage me from wearing tank tops or short-sleeved shirts that showed my arms or shorts or skirts...parts of herself she hated and so parts of me she wished to cover up. I've never HATED my body like I felt and feel that my mother hated/s hers. But I also was never in a position where I felt comfortable enough to display how much I liked my body either. Anyone who's grown up fat has been teased and knows what it feels like to be critisized for the way you look even by people you don't even know. Granted, I wear skirts now and the occasional tank top...but it's just plain old NICE to be able to show you're not ashamed of your body in an environment where you're not going to have to deal with fat hatred and disgust. And it's doubly nice to know that not only do you like it, but there are other people who like it as well-- and who are attracted to it. It's an affirmation of your physical beauty and attactiveness that hasn't always been present in the life of a fat person.

So, bottom line honesty: I think I'm attracitve...I think my BODY is attractive. It's fun to take pictures. And I like the attention.

It's a new thing for me-- showing off so much. But it's very liberating.

And maybe part of it is that I'm getting to have that rebellious, free stage with my body that most people get to have younger and in real life. Regardless, I think I'm more attractive at this point in my life-- and not just for physical reasons-- than I've ever been. And I don't find it demeaning to myself to post such pictures, although there was a point where a large number of my posts were pictures, and I worried I wasn't being taken seriously as a person, but I think it's about keeping a balance. And I think I've accomplished that now.

Plus I'm single, and they've kick-started a lot of conversations.

Seriously! 2 1/2 years? It would have been on page 7 of the Fat Sexuality section before it got bumped, based on the previous last post date.

Have we peaked and not realized it?
Was this board's creative high point back in mid-2011?
Can it be that nothing at all we've posted since then measures up to that shining Golden Age?

Food for thought...
