Dangerous Curves: XCritic Travels to Las Vegas to Cover BBW FanFest 2012!
By Rob Perez
If you haven’t been checking out Twitter lately then you probably think the only big porn convention occuring this weekend is taking place in Chicago. But head several hundred miles west to Las Vegas and a who’s who of the BBW porn world elite is converging in the Tuscany Suites and Casino as gorgeous, sexy, big, beautiful women are preparing to inaugurate the first annual BBW Fan Fest convention and awards show this weekend (July 13-15). XCritic was given a unique opportunity to cover this event which not only has been a long time in the making, but is also a first of it’s kind event soley celebrating women of size, which have long been ignored by the mainstream porn community. Finally, a BBW adult convention with nothing but curves, dangerous curves, everywhere you look!
Blowing up all over Twitter, many of the women first heard of the event through social media, and it has already been the talk of the porn community. Many prominent BBWs are here in Las Vegas to celebrate and bask in all the festivities taking place. Big name performers and champions of the BBW community such as April Flores, Kelly Shibari, Desiree Devine, Rodney Moore, Shane Diesel, Clint Works of Sensational Video/Plumper Pass, have all gathered here this weekend to show that BBW porn is a bona fide genre not to be overlooked or under-appreciated by the porn mainstream. XCritic.com, through it’s interview series “Dangerous Curves,” has recognized that these women are just as sexually appealing and desirable as any other girl working in porn and will continue to showcase more plus-size performers in the months ahead. I will be here covering the event over the next few days interviewing and reporting on the Fan Fest and hope you enjoy reading about all the exciting events taking place, culminating in the BBW Fan Fast Awards Show and Banquet! What’s a BBW event without food, eh!?!
I begin my first report with my own personal experience on the eve of Fan Fest. Arriving in Vegas just before 10am, I meet up with promising up and coming performer Becky Butterfly, who’s here in Vegas to work the Rodney Moore booth and to perform for PlumperPass with the one and only Shane Diesel. Take a look at her now because by Saturday night she may be a totally different looking woman. But she is gorgeous, isn’t she fellas?
After arriving to the Tuscany we’re greeted by another up and coming BBW performer, Mystique of worldofmystique.com, and her photographer Jason. As you can see, Mystique and Becky became really fast friends!
After talking we all met up with Paige Reign, one of the many volunteers/performers devoting their time to the Fan Fest, as well as Holly Jayde, a BBW California stunner with plenty of sass and a nice ass to match. So where do I and a two attractive BBW porn girls end up during a break in pre-registration? Remember, this is Vegas after all. We end up in Walmart!
Suddenly my reporting instincts kick in and I immediately recognize I have a story here—two porn girls shopping in the most wholesome of all American retail stores. It wasn’t long when we found our way to the condoms and lubricants.
Looks like Becky and Holly have made a new friend, and look who’s in the middle of that BBW sandwich—me. That’s Becky holding up a male erectile dysfunction supplement next to me—not that I need it.
We made our way back to a secret location where the girls, who went from strangers to friends, to really good friends within an hour of meeting each other, and took the following pics. Hey, it’s a porn convention; what’s a porn convention without a little fun and nudity.
I’ll have more pictures and more interviews from Fan Fest coming up shortly!
