Wow! did anyone watch "Strange Sex" on TLC tonight?? It was about Donna, that insane woman who WANTS to weigh 1,000 pounds and the equally nutty husband who is into "Feedism" it's a sexual thrill to feed her and have sex with her and he can't wait til she's so big that she's completely immobile, and she think it will be 'awesome' and she can't wait either!!!

WTF????

There is also a horror movie called "Feed" about the same topic. While desiring immobility is really extreme, it's not that rare for men who strongly prefer fat women to urge their partners to eat a lot and gain weight. "Food is love" and all that, taken to the next level.

Not my cup of tea but I suppose in the case of consenting adults and the autonomy of making one's own decisions regarding one's own body, they're not doing anything wrong.

Besides the mental health aspect of this women and husbands situation, I know at 230lb, my joints ache to sit in one place for hours on end (which I try to avoid, but with a desk job and school happens sometimes). I can't imagine, wanting to be 1000lbs, not being mobile anymore, and just having to sit/lay for days, weeks, months or even years. I can't imagine the excruciating pain that would put on my joints. I think instead of glamorizing stuff like this through reality tv, someone should be stepping in and getting them both the mental help them desperately need.

Ok, there is nothing sexy about someone having to change your pants because you can't do it yourself. Don't get me wrong, this happens to people who are very sick and they have to cope with it but why would you choose that?

*shrug* I've seen stranger things on the internet.

I certainly would never advocate it. I'm sure doctors would be screaming about the health implications, but ... it falls into the two consenting adults category.

Once you enter "fetish" territory, logic no longer applies. "Why would you want that?" has no answer but "because (for some strange and probably even unknown reason) they do."

Why would anyone find dressing up and acting like a giant baby or a stuffed animal erotic? Why would anyone want to buy someone else's used underwear or running shoes/socks on ebay? Why would anyone want a partner to step on their genitals?

Fat fetishists (feeders/feedees) have about as much in common with ordinary, average obese people as "plushies" have with stuffed animals and adult infants have with actual infants.

To echo what kaplods has said, if in a slightly different manner:

Think of it this way. Watch a commercial that is selling a product. A car, a big greasy burger, baking prepackaged cookie dough...whatever.

Now, realize that someone, somewhere, is incredibly turned on by said commercial. That melty cheese sparked a totally different kind of hunger in someone. The car insurance cavemen. Vacuums. There are fetishes involving food, inanimate objects, scenery...look at some random object in your house. Yep - that too.

As kaplods said, logic no longer applies. And nothing is off limits.

If they enjoy what they are doing and are not hurting anyone else in the process, I wish them the absolute best...even if I don't understand the appeal of the particular kink. Good on them for being able to be honest with themselves and each other.

Generally speaking, I take the "consenting adults" approach but surely someone deliberately doing such harm to their body cannot be in their right mind and as such, isn't there a case for sectioning? OK, civil liberties and all that, but do we really have the liberty to willfully endanger our health/lives?

How do they fund themselves? Are they self-supporting or does the state pick up the bill for this fetish?

I believe what Arctic Frogs describes is also known as "Rule 34."

As far as the original subject goes, I don't get it either, but although my usual opinion is "whatever floats others' boats as long as they're consenting adults," I admit to some squeamishness about this and a few other extreme things that cause physical harm to one or both partners. Whatever happened to the old guideline of "no permanent damage?"

Half a ton of weight definitely qualifies as permanent damage.

I have a feeling, though, that the couple probably found it a turn-on to discuss that thousand-pound number, to fantasize about it, to play-act it--but may not actually DO it. Someone who likes to dress his honey up as a cheerleader (or dress as one himself) doesn't want to BE a cheerleader, but finds the roleplay fun. Maybe they just find it fun to roleplay? I hope that's it, because people who really do find it erotic to cripple someone they love...well, that's a little beyond the pale even to me, and I have a pretty laissez-faire attitude about other folks' follies.

you can say the same thing about someone who smokes or drinks too much or takes drugs. There is never going to be a shortage of people looking to destroy their bodies.

did it occur to anyone these people may just be exagerating the whole thing for the sake of a good tv show?

The first part of this quote is a great point.

The second, I dunno, maybe? But whether THESE particular people are doing it for tv or not, there are def people out there who do this so it's still just as ridiculous and very real.

What bugs me is that I'm pretty sure this lady has kids. And that takes it firmly out of the realm of "no harm to others."

As for the fetishes, I've never understood them but, then, I think maybe that's part of the point. I'm not sure the people that have them even understand it completely.

There are aspects that likely have not been considered by this couple. What happens when she's immobile, and he gets sick of having to do EVERYTHING (laundry, cooking, washing her, taking care of any kids, grocery shopping), what if he decides it's too much work, and leaves? Or if, heaven forbid, he dies? What happens when she gets ill and needs to be seen by a doctor? If she's in the US, is she going to have problems with medical insurance due to her weight? (As a Canadian, I have no clue about things like this).

I am EXTREMELY open minded about what consenting adults do behind closed doors, but I can't, for the life of me, imagine going to such extremes, in any aspect of my life, for sexual gratification or to fulfill a fantasy. Especially considering the costs to one's health. As well I think that anyone who would be willing to put their body through that, shorten their lives, stress their family dynamics etc, should seek professional help, in regards to their self image. I also can't imagine asking someone I love to do that kind of harm to their body, in the name of "fantasy". I can't imagine asking the person I LOVE to shorten their lives, to give up ALL freedom, and to become completely dependent on me, for any reason. I love my husband, and because I love him, I want him to be happy AND healthy, and with me for a long time, and no fantasy is worth giving that up for. Really, it almost borders, in my mind (and my very strong opinion) on abusive. Isolation, loss of control, loss of freedom....

While I fully believe that not everyone should "want" to be thin, and fit, and that there are plenty of overweight and morbidly obese people (women specifically) who have plenty of self confidence and self worth, I don't think anyone who is TRYING to get to 1,000lbs has a very good self image.

Anyway, this is just my opinion. I guess no one can know for sure.

They are sick. Mental illness comes in many different guises. There are medications and counseling for this kind of thing.

I think a lot of the more extreme fetishes are not entirely voluntary. I don't think anyone who is sexually attracted to children or babies has chosen to be that way. Why would you make a decision to have a sexual interest like that, where you can't ever satisfy your urges without breaking the law and harming innocents? It's an itch they can never ever scratch within moral and legal boundaries, and I feel sorry for them. Feeders/feedees are sort of the same - they cannot satisfy their fantasies without doing great harm to their bodies. I still think it falls under "my body my choice" though, and getting involved legally infringes on the question of people who are super obese who don't have fetishes or diagnosed eating disorders.

krampus- I looked up that movie on Netflix....ew. It was pretty awful and I HATED the ending. I better find a job soon.

Fact of the matter is, they are two consenting adults. We can complain about health care costs, but every day people make choices that influence health. Granted, this is an incredibly extreme case, but it's really up to them. I do think that there is some sort of unhealthy compulsion going on and I would definitely say the same about men who like starved women (and they do exist. Not just thin women, but starved women). It's sad and scary the extremes people will go to so they can fulfill a fetish.

Trazey pretty much said it for me. I started watching and then changed the channel as quickly as possible.

OK, civil liberties and all that, but do we really have the liberty to willfully endanger our health/lives?
Agree

Sick! Sick ! Sick !
Definitely agree!
