So I guess it would be anything 14 and up according to them, and they are the fashion leader
14!! Thats riddiculous - i wouldnt consider 14 as a plus size at all! Id start it at 18/20 myself. But im not a fashion leader

There is a person for everyone in this world. That is why everyone is attracted to someone different. Sometimes men use women as ego boosters. They want to take them out and show them off to make themselves more important. That is kind of empty. You love the woman that makes you happy because exactly how much time do you spend in the company of others anyway.
A lot of people always think the grass is greener on the other side. Here is a funny story. My best friend and I have been best friends for 49 years, since we were 10. Even though most of our lives were have been separated through marriages, moves, etc, we have always remained best friends just like when we were kids. Now we see each other only about every two years, and as we are getting older we talk about our life experiences. One day she said to me, You know, we get along so well, I sometimes wish you were a man. I told her the same thing. Then we burst out laughing realizing if we both got our wish, we would be 2 men! LOL

That's probably my problem, but it is what it is.
Well, suit yourself, but maybe that is why you are masturbating to pictures. One thing about full figured women, is that society leads them to believe they have to perform better to be equal. So instead of pictures, you could be enjoying a real woman who can suck a baskektball through a garden hose. LOL

Why seek validation for what you like? Sounds like you aren't very comfortable with your preferences, like something must be wrong with you for finding fuller figures more attractive.

You need some self-evaluation time, so that you are able to move ahead with full acceptance and confidence in what you like without needing society to agree or approve.

I could be wrong but sounds like what you are truly trying to express is that because society puts so much focus on the beauty of thin female builds as ideal, it makes you feel uncomfortable with liking plus-sized figures. Understandable as we all want to fit in, feel normal and accepted, but who wants to be a lemming, a follower, a faker...most importantly untrue to yourself?

I have a special reason for being happy that my wife is a plus size. She has Addison's Disease. That's where your adrenal glands shut down. If she gets stressed or sick and starts throwing up, unless she gets in the hospital and treatment, that is what will kill her. She got down to 75 pounds before the doctors finally found out what was wrong. Dr. told her as long as she's not losing weight, she's fine. She's heavier than most doctors would want her to be, but as long as she stays this way, we're going to have a long and happy marriage! I always say there's more there to love! lol

He's turned on all the time, and given his inability to keep his hands off me in some of the most inappropriate places (ie grocery store), I'd say if I did ask him what he thought, his response would be "I don't give a %$#@ !".

Not to mention some of those activities provide a damn good work out

Is it wrong to be attracted to larger women???

It won't hurt you...unless you fall off of her or she falls on you of course.JMO

Personally I LOVE the bigger built "farm girl" figure.

Other than that size is only an illusion in ones own mind, but that goes for everything in life. Everything we view or hear or smell or feel in life is really just chemical and electrical actions happening between the neuro receptors within our own brains. When you see and feel things it just illusions happening in the mind. Living those illusions is what being human is all about. Some are better than others that for sure.
If I was squashed, at least I'd go with a smile on my face! lol
