Say what you will about the adult film industry, but when these actors can get together and collaborate to create a sex education DVD specifically researched and produced for plus-sized individuals, that’s a good thing!
Everyone needs love, and not just the emotional variety. Physical love is not only enjoyable, it’s not only a great way to strengthen the bond between two people in love, but it’s also good for heart health. With that said, not everyone can truly enjoy the sexual experience – for a variety of reason like low self-esteem, negative body image, and in the case of plus-sized persons, comfort and logistics.
Enter adult film star Jessica Drake and award winning BBW (Big Beautiful Women) performer and “size acceptance advocate” Kelly Shibari in collaboration with Wicked Pictures.
“From the inception of my series Guide to Wicked Sex, I've wanted it to be a unique educational hybrid, an all-inclusive resource to everyone interested in realizing their sexual potential,” says Jessica Drake. “When I began doing seminars and workshops years ago, I quickly realized women and couples of size were lacking options, and it seemed many plus size movies were still upholding the clichéd stereotypes, often in a derogatory fashion.” (Wicked Pictures Press Release)
On March 3rd, Wicked Pictures announced the completion of the photography portion of this project; jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size (sic), and introduced the cast for the film which will be complete by spring/summer 2014.

“I am incredibly thrilled with what we were able to capture on camera,” says Kelly Shibari. She goes on to describe the visual content as “beautiful, with a very cinematic feel.”
This DVD is the first of its kind for the plus-sized community. With most Americans falling into this category, whether a little or a lot, it’s sure to be both inspiring and helpful.
The film casts the following BBW adult film performers; Devlyn Red, Angel DeLuca, and Scarlet LaVey, as well as non-performer couples Scarlette Cyn and JC Lewis, and Sherri Shaulis and Michael Colbert.
The film will focus on communicating, exploring, accepting, and appreciating the body, and sharing that experience with one’s partner sexually.
“jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size takes viewers through a variety of topics, from relationship communication, discussion of trigger words and acceptable terminology between partners, size-friendly sex positions, and body confidence exercises. The addition of three full-length sex scenes, available with or without commentary, is also offered at the end of the film. Interviews with plus-size adult performers, as well as non-performers, are an integral part of the project. The provide a non-xxx look into the issues confronted by plus size women, men, and couples, and offer solutions to increase confidence and combat negative stereotypes.” (Wicked Pictures)
