An Asian American frist you won’t be reading about on AngryAsianMan, Japanese American and BBW superstar Kelly Shibari has been announced as the newest “Fleshlight girl”. While Kelly is the fourth Asian American porn starlet to have her mouth, vag and booty-hole molded and kept for prosperity, she is the frist BBW.
Fleshlight CEO Steve Shubin told Xbiz.com “Fleshlight has always prided itself on offering its customers a variety of products.” He continued, “with the BBW market’s growing presence on the Internet, partnering with Kelly Shibari to offer her Fleshlight product was a no-brainer for us.”
While there’s still a debate about the growth or collapse of the BBW sex industry it can’t be denied that one of the most successful players in the game has been Shibari. Of course few BBW performers have branched out in the way she has. She owns her own PR group, a feminist porn award winning site – PaddedKink.com and has appeared in mainstream music videos. She also is adept at grabbing headlines , like when her best selling blowbang was announced.
“I have always been enamored with the Fleshlight, and even more so with the beautiful performers that the company has chosen to represent their brand,” Shibari said. “To be selected to work with this immensely popular company, with a proven track record of high-quality products and an extremely loyal fan base, is both an honor and an affirmation of the work I’ve put into my own brand over the years. I can’t wait for my fans, and fans of curvier women in general, to enjoy me in this most intimate of ways. I am extremely proud to call myself a Fleshlight Girl.”
Personally I’ve found as a BBW model that there is has always been a double barrier for success for us. On one hand women of color have always been devalued , even by our male counterparts, then on top of that we have the socially acceptable scarlet “F” for being fat. Those are two very real obstacles to face when trying to build your career.
You have to give it up for her, there’s no way around it- Asians are not supposed to be fat. Read through a few entries on ThickDumplingSkin.com there’s a lot of pressure for Asian American women to live up to the stereotypes that surround us. We are to be fair, thin, and exotically beautiful. Asian and Fat are as antonymous as Fat and Black or Poor and Black are synonymous. Its sad to think that many in the size acceptance community will turn a blind eye to this news because Shibari is Japanese American and not seen as part of the group. Hopefully this will mean more opportunities for BBWs of all colors in the adult industry.
I’m also happy to say that fleshlight.com seems to have grown up and can use the word “vagina” like a big boy now.
