I've found some candy shop things that send to Canadian addresses, but I don't know if it shows the address to senders or not. That part would suck if it did. Also, there's some drastic shipping fees that I'm totally not a fan of, lol.

American companies that ship to Canada often have stupid shipping fees. I know I was looking at some clothing for my wife, and by the time that shipping and tax were added, $50 became $75 or so

Having said that, there are _few_ that seem serious about it, and have reasonable shipping. I guess all you can do is check.

Well maybe some sweet feeder will have sympathy on your plight and send them regardless of the shipping fees. It doesn't hurt to add them cuz ya never know

I thought ebay would be an option (as they have a wishlist feature), but it looks like you still have to enter the recipient's address manually

Its such a shame coles and woolies dont have the feature cause you can actually gift groceries and they wave the delivery fee only prob is you have to make sure the person is home at the delivery time oh and you do need the home addy for it as well

I am a doofus and forgot to fix the shipping address on my wishlist if anyone has tried it and it wouldn't pull up an address to allow you to complete the order. I did it for my other wishlist and assumed it would apply for this one as well....guess not lol

Anywho...the prob is fixed now. There's some heath bars calling my name on my wishlist I lurve to add heath bars into my icecream *bats eyelashes* hehe

I think the lack of response to your idea is mostly that a lot of folks consider the very concept as an act of devious, creepy, exploitive, abnormal, objectifying, victimizing evilness that must be rooted out with McCarthy-ish effort and determination.

Lol damn evil feeders

I guess I see it as mutually beneficial. Then again, I've participated in my share of feeder/feedee activities in real life w/a boyfriend and online as well, obviously lol. It's all about perspective. If a fat girl likes cake and a feeder wants to give you cake..well...I don't see a problem here lol. It's all fantasy and funness regardless...even if a gal isn't intentionally trying to gain weight, the cake will likely cause it..and you're gonna eat the damn thing anyway lol..so why not play with it? Right? Lol

I guess some people/women feel it's a control issue. But sexually, there's always an underlying control struggle. It can be fun to relinquish it sometimes for play time..

Maybe my perspective may seem skewed to others on the matter. I dunno...but that makes perfect sense to me.

Though I've had a private response to the wishlist...but not a public response. I got 4 cheesecakes on the way!!! Lol...I'm hoping nobody finds me face down in bed with my head buried in a cheesecake dead of a cheesecake overdose lol

so maybe some of the feeders are reluctant to be vocal in a thread and I get that...but I expected more women to be ok with posting a foodee wishlist even if it wasn't a feedee wishlist.

You do have a good point... endless food lists should be the feedee's responcibility lol.

However there could be a feeder wish list (things other than loads of yummy foods) such as:

Huge beds and sofas which could take my girls weight, extra wide doorways... these are the things a feeder needs haha .

mmm cheese cake..
I'm game to make one.. not going to be a good thing for me since i haven't eaten yet and looking at food might have me darting for the kitchen (I only just got out of the shower like 15 minutes ago)
ETA: I buy snacks and yummy food often but usually have to share it..so this list is all me!!
