We need fat representation in erotica and romance! So here are some amazing books and authors bringing it!
We need fat characters in erotic romance! Seeing representation of fat people in loving, sexual, passionate, sweet, kinky relationships helps de-stigmatize a whole group of people that are otherwise widely believed to be “gross” or asexual at best. Many, MANY of use are sexually active and enjoy or want to enjoy wholesome romance and sex lives. Seeing ourselves in erotic romance literature helps normalize that and its just plain hot
So I took to Twitter and I asked for Fat-Positive Erotic Romance. I was so happy to receive a number of authors sharing their books and links.
(I also received some nonsense and fatphobic bullshit but I won’t linger on that beyond saying, this shit happens every time a fat person steps out of the shadows and requests body positivity and that really had got to fucking stop, k? thanks).
Fat-Positive Erotica and Romance
I will admit some of these I have not read (yet) and if there are any stories here that are fatphobic, fetishizing fat people, or triggering without a warning, please let me know and I will remove them from the list.
If you have a romance story that features fat characters either as the protagonist or love interest, please let me email me at TheSmutGeek @ gmail . com
Xan West has some amazing books! I reviewed their short story in Best Lesbian Erotica 2019 and I’ve been hooked on their writing ever since! You can also read their amazing article on why they cara about Fat Characters in Erotica here. Their Troublesome Crush doesn’t disappoint. Its a sweet romance between two fat characters that also covers BDSM, disability, access intimacy, and more. My review of this book is coming soon but know that it will be a rave!
With words good girl echoing in my mind I skipped through the buttons with one hand. My shirt opened, revealing all my flesh, cleavage bulging from a black lacy bra. Jonesey responded with a throaty groan, put his arms around me and skilfully undid the clasp. My boobs spilled out directly into his waiting hands. He twisted the nipples and squeezed the flesh, obviously revelling in their size and weight. I could see the need in his eyes and allowed my mouth to open with desire, no order necessary.

Welcome to Sea Port, where the town baker, cop and fire chief fall heavily in lust.
I have to admit I’m a sucker for foodie romance especially when there’s a small town and a love triangle!
Sorcha Rowan never fails to bring the heat in her erotica. She is one of my fav erotica peeps and I was very excited to learn that she’d written a tale featuring a plus size babe.
While her books are not romance with the happy endings traditional sense, there are fat characters and plenty of sex along with some fabulous writing. I highly recommend checking out the rest of her work as well.
Romance on the sweet side.
