In a society where fat-shaming is encouraged, it may be hard to imagine that someone could adore your fat body. And if you find fat attractive, acknowledging your sexual desires can feel like an uphill battle against what's "normal." But obesity doesn't have to mean indignity. Drawing on his personal experiences as a "chubby chaser," as well as the stories of people who are fat and sexually fulfilled, Dan Oliverio discusses the process of making peace with your body and your desires.

The Round World is the first book to explore obesity from the perspective of the people who find it erotic and seek fat people as romantic partners. In a personal and conversational style, Oliverio discusses existing prejudices against and medical issues around people of size, obesity, kink, and general fat acceptance. With humor and practicality, The Round World provides a primer on loving yourself as you are--fat or not.

About the Author
Oliverio, Dan: - Dan Oliverio talks about the issues that come up for people when obesity intersects with sexuality. By drawing on his personal experiences as a "chubby chaser," and on the experiences of hundreds of fat people and their admirers whom he's talked to, Oliverio has identified a new way to think about fat and size acceptance that empowers people, helping them make peace with their bodies and their desires. He has led seminars in New Orleans, Orlando, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Berlin, and his unique perspectives have brought me to be featured on MTV's True Life, the Tyra show, and several American and European documentaries. His writings on obesity and sexuality have appeared in several publications including The Huffington Post. Obesity as a cultural taboo affects everyone. Oliverio sees the attraction to fat as part of society's greater conversation about masculinity, femininity, power, and beauty that has resonance far beyond the world of fat people and their admirers. The aim of his work is to help people discover the freedom to embrace who they've always been and to love what they've always loved.
