Last night, Channel 4 viewers got their first look at the world of fat fetishists in Nick Betts’ documentary, My Big Fat Fetish, and in today’s Daily Mirror, one of the women featured in the film, Reenaye Starr, has revealed what the clients who flock to her website really want from her.
And it’s an astonishingly candid interview, in which 29 stone Reenaye revealed that men from all over the world send her money for food – then watch her eat it – and that many of her subscribers like “squashing”, which, as it says on the tin, means being squashed by a fat woman.
31 year old Reenaye, who measures 52-60-73, began by explaining that her subscribers love to watch “big girls eating or getting fatter or playing with their bellies.”
She added, “There are so many different kinds of ‘fat admirers’. Some men are not interested in squashing at all. Some men are just into big ladies looking cute…
“And then there are some into hardcore pornography who want to see big ladies having sex.
“It all depends on what your sub-fetish is – but to these men, being with a big woman in any capacity is their ultimate desire.”
And when asked, “What is the most popular request made of you by your website’s subscribers?” Reenaye said, “Probably stuffing sessions, where girls eat as much as their bodies can handle.
“But not everything on the site is eating, eating, eating. There are extreme aspects, sure – like domination and submission, including force-feeding.
“We try and cater for every kind of feeding fantasy. But there is also a lot of weight gain chat where subscribers note what a girl weighs when she starts and what weight she ends up at.
“Some of the girls on our site are not actively gaining, but they are willing to do fetish stuff.”
Of her own client base, Reenaye said, “I personally attract kinda nerdy guys, but that’s probably because I do things like set ups where I’m reading a comic book while eating. That’s my personality, too.
“I think it’s just a preference – like whether you like blue eyes, or blonde hair. I think all different types of men love big women.”
She added, “I’ve gained over 100lbs purposefully but I’m no longer gaining, I’m maintaining my weight. I don’t want to be uncomfortable, I don’t want to be immobile.
“I was in a car accident a couple years ago and sustained a permanent injury to my foot and because of that I’m not really able to do some of the things I used to be able to do.
“I can still walk around and get around fine. But say, if I go to Disney for the day I have to ride an electronic buggy. That’s a really long ride for me.”
And finally, when asked, “Do you ever feel as if you’re being exploited or – on the flip side ? empowered?” Reenaye replied, “I feel very empowered with what I do.
“It’s like the age-old question of like, feminist movement or whatever because a lot of people would say that if someone is in the adult industry at all, a female, that they’re being exploited.
“But I run my own business. I do very well for my family. When you see the film, you’ll see that I have a really nice house.
“I’m doing the things that I want to do in life, so it’s very empowering.
“Not only that but I interact with women who love themselves and love their size.
“To me, being on ‘The Biggest Loser’ would be exploitation. To me, going along with what the rest of the world thinks I should do and feeling bad about myself and talking bad about how I feel and who I am just because I’m large… well, I love being big.
“To me, it’s absolutely empowering. I work with attractive women who love themselves – what could be more empowering than that?”
