Default Is coming out to your partner a must?

Taking sex play that directly involves fatness out of the equation: how important do you think it is to tell your the fat person you're having sex with that you identify as a fat admirer? If someone accepts that you are attracted to his or her body, does that sentiment need to be explained or made specific?

I'd say it's about as important as informing the woman I'm having sex with that I'm heterosexual.* As my momma used to say, "Actions speak louder than words."


*I never told ANY of them, but somehow they all figured it out.

I think actions speak louder than words. If they see you noticing other fat people and if they've asked you if you have had fat partners in the past then they should already get that your attraction to them is genuine and that should be the end of that. In general if you show you are genuine then you might not need to have a conversation at all.

all the sexual partners i've had in my life have been romantic partners, as well.
this said, i've always made sure that i am identified as a fat admirer, because i believe in being honest about who i am.

and fat admirer is a very, very major part of who i am.

Same here - I feel the need to tell them. Also, I tend to get a lot of weird questions/reactions if I don't blatantly spell out what I like to a partner.

I don't think it's always a necessary thing per what Olwen said.
In the past I would just mention in itself when I was asked more often than simply just letting it out.

I kind of went on a tangent about this in a different thread, and I expressed my fear that not talking about my FA-ness would be like lying by ommission. I guess I concluded that, like Olwen said, if the person you're with accepts that your'e attracted to them, it's not necessary.

Out of curiosity, what's your experience been like with telling people you've been with that you're a fat admirer? Was it like, "yeah, I figured as much," or was it more like, "well, hot damn, why didn't you say so?"

Coming from a male POV i don't think most men would care if you told them or not as long as they are getting attention.
I would assume a female that is with an FA might want to know so she doesn't feel like a piece of meat when some guy is squeezing and biting her fatness and clearly getting turned on by it.

Good question.
Most girls I’ve been with have had a reaction of disbelief upon learning I was an FA.
Some had difficulty believing that anyone could find them attractive. I’ve had one girl flat out tell me I was abnormal for being attracted to fat girls. I’ve had one cease communication with me because she just refused to believe that I found her attractive.
Other than a few exceptions, I’ve gotten responses of acceptance – in some cases immediate, in other cases eventually. It was more of a “well, the fact that you like fat girls is really to my benefit!”

I very much feel this way.
I mean, as I said above, being an FA is just a part of who I am. And I often feel that if I'm not up front about it, not only am I lying to the girl, but I'm lying to myself as well.

I dunno about that. I'm a fat girl as well as a fat admirer, so it's an issue I have to look at from both sides. I've been with guys who have told me that they found my body to be beautiful, but never with a guy who told me that he specifically found fatness to be an attractive trait. So I can't speak from personal experience, but I think my reaction would be mixed. On one hand, it would be a comfort to know that my size isn't something that is merely being tolerated, or something that can be overlooked in favor of other attributes. But on the other hand, I think I would be skeptical about if he was interested in me, or just in my fat bits.

And I realize that sounds a bit silly, considering that the fat guys I've slept with have been attractive to me as whole people, not just fat bits, but that's sort of why I'm hesitant to be open about my chubby chasing ways. I don't want to introduce that skepticism that I personally am inclined to feel.

But by not telling them, aren't you being unfaithful? You're not supposed to keep any secrets from your SO, from what I heard.

I think looking at it as being unfaithful is going a bit far.

If you communicate to your partner that you find him/her attractive, and s/he believes you, I'm not sure that it is necessary to let him/her know that it's because of a pattern of being attracted to fat people.

Exactly. And, is it necessary then to communicate to your partner every single trait s/he possesses that falls in line with what you usually find attractive? Like, do you have to say, I am a wit admirer, or a redhead admirer, or an intelligence admirer, or a compassion admirer? It seems like these are just things s/he'll notice as you spend time together, and when you respond positively to certain physical/non-physical traits that s/he has.

Or am I missing something?

I've never been in a relationship, but I would think it would be very important. Honesty is always a must in a relationship. Even I know that.

To answer the original question, you need to ask yourself two other questions. The first is this: Is being an FA an important part of who you are? In my own case, being an FA is a core part of me, and it always has been. From an early age, I always had a strong attraction to the very fattest girls in school. Looking back on my romantic relationships, they were all strongly influenced by my being an FA, whether or not I realized it at the time. But your case may be different.

The other question is this: Do you think it's important that your partner know who you are? In other words, are you just looking for some short-term fun (nothing wrong with that), or are you open to a long-term relationship if you find no major incompatibilities? In my case, I always dated with an eye towards an LTR (it worked, too; I have a great wife). Hence, I tended to be very open with my partners, because I wanted to learn about incompatibilities as soon as possible, so we could both move on if it looked like it wasn't going anywhere. But again, this depends on what you are looking for.

Here's another question that encapsulates both of the above: What would you do in the following scenario? You're dating a fat person, and things are going great but you haven't told them you're an FA. Then one day, they say, "Did you know there are people who are only sexually attracted to fat partners? Isn't that disgusting? I've heard they are called 'fat admirers'. I wouldn't want to be involved with one of those sickos." You talk about it for a while (still revealing nothing about yourself), and you find that your partner is very adamant about disliking FAs. What would you do? Would you consider this an incompatibility, or would you deny your nature, in order to stay with them? I think that might answer your original question.

The most important person that needs to know the preference is the person themselves...some self acceptance on the subject..and then, they need to be out of the closet, nothing to me, speaks disrespect of your partner louder, than being in the closet about who/what you like...then last but not least, showing the person you are with that you care for them AND their fat, or for some of us Their FAT and them as well.

Obviously. Anyone who's seen a ten-second clip of Dr. Phil knows that. But what I'm suggesting is that there are a lot of grey areas in terms of what the truth is, and also the consideration of the effects of telling the truth, which require us to filter ourselves at times.

Given that scenario? I would feel the need to come out to them. I'm not going to lie to someone about who I am, or what I need, and I'm certainly not going to trick them into a relationship with the kind of person they find repugnant. If the subject of fat admiration didn't come up though, I'm not sure I would pursue it.

This was pretty much going to be my answer. I don't think it's necessary, or even always positive to tell everything about oneself in every single situation. It's important to think about the other person too and how s/he might receive such information. We're all entitled to privacy. Additionally, I think this is sort of like the notion of whether or not you should 'confess' to cheating if you've done it. i've seen advice columns say you should not confess because doing so only makes you feel better but hurts your partner.

I think it's enough to say "I'm turned on by you" without going into specifics. If the other person asks, I think you should answer the questions as truthfully as you think will make them comfortable. I think at some point it becomes arrogant to assume that a BHM who hates being fat is going to change his mind if i tell him enough "Oh it's really hot". Sure in some cases it might make him feel good about himself or he might have that "Wow. Some women are actually aroused by this" but if he hates being fat or gained weight as adult after being thinner or gained weight due to depression or something, it's probably not going to be helpful or positive to hear me expounding over how much fat men turn me on.

I think there are different ways of coming out.

I would prefer a partner to whom I could be open about my preference and who accepts it. Someone who doesn't find it strange that I love soft curves and like to touch them.

But if she is still in that "fat is ugly and I don't understand how anyone could like fat person like me" stage, I will be more hesitant to touch them. I will definitely tell her and try to explain that I like big women, that I like those soft curves, but as long as she is very much aware of her fatness in a negative way and is not ready for it, I will not touch them as much as I would like to.

You owe it to yourself to be open about your preference with any partner. Yeah, actions should back up your words, but communication is a good thing and you'll be doing yourself a favor if you seek out relationships with people interested in partners who are attracted to them. Not everyone is, so for your own sake, being direct is just a smart approach.
