Jessica Drake, Kelly Shibari to Do 'Plus Size' Collaboration
LOS ANGELES — Wicked Pictures contract star Jessica Drake will collaborate with BBW star Kelly Shibari on the first-ever educational DVD on plus-size sexuality.
The DVD, "Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size," will be released by Wicked Pictures. Casting for the project is currently underway; production begins shortly after the January adult awards show season.
“I’m so thrilled to have jessica and Wicked Pictures support me in the creation of this DVD,” Shibari said. “This is a project Jessica and I have been discussing for well over a year. She has been a great supporter and a true inspiration in the field of positive sexuality and agreed there was a lack, and a very obvious need, for a sex education video for people of size.
"I hope the DVD will help men, women, and couples of size become more confident in their sexuality, explore their amazing bodies, and communicate better as to their sexual desires.”
As a BBW model/performer, Shibari is passionate about introducing body-positive messages into the media spotlight, and promotes her ongoing mantra of “confidence is sexy” through a variety of mediums. Her article on plus-size sexuality and pornography on Jane Pratt’s Say Media site, xojane, was well-received.
Shibari has written for several adult industry sites, and was a featured guest editor for ex-Gawker Media site Fleshbot's Kelly Shibari Week, and contributes to sexuality website Gasm.org, as well as XBIZ.
A proponent of “intelligent hedonism,” Shibari speaks on college campuses and more on how to intelligently navigate female sexuality, negative media messages about size, and bullying, all while developing self-confidence, class, and inner strength.
“When I started my research into plus size sexuality, I found there were plenty of blogs and a few books on the subject, but no educational videos, either from lack of production support or hesitation about covering the subject matter," Shibari said. "I’m so pleased to have Jessica and Wicked take this step with me. Wicked is a phenomenal company when it comes to sex education outreach everywhere, and having their support in creating this DVD is extremely humbling.”
Drake remarked, “When I first began 'Guide to Wicked Sex,' I wanted it to be an all-inclusive educational resource for every adult looking to enrich their sex lives.
"The plus sized community deserves better sex education, support, and inspiration, and Kelly Shibari is the perfect person to co-direct and narrate 'Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size' to ensure the project’s genuine authenticity.
"From the day I met Kelly, I hoped to collaborate with her on this project, and over time I've gotten to know her both as a friend and fellow educator. Her knowledge and creativity, coupled with a desire to share both in order to better the sex lives of an underrepresented and equally important demographic, will take this instructional to a whole new level.
"As always, I am extremely grateful to Wicked Pictures for their constant support and for allowing me to continue to expand the Guide to Wicked Sex brand, helping women and couples of all kinds enhance their sexuality.”
