Kelly Shibari Named September 'SheVibe' Cover Model

LOS ANGELES — BBW star Kelly Shibari is featured as the cover model for the September homepage at SheVibe.com.

The performer is depicted in a graphic-novel Batgirl-style superhero with Asian weaponry.

Shibari is also interviewed about marketing, plus size sexuality, superheroes, Japanese culture, and her varied projects, including her collaboration on “Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size.”

“What an absolute honor to be featured by SheVibe,” Shibari said. “The company combines all of the things I love — comics, sex toys, education, and positive sexuality. The staff is so amazing, friendly, and fun loving. I’m so in love with the artwork — I’m just thrilled with how it came out. Thank you, SheVibe; I’m definitely hanging this on my wall for everyone to see."

Shibari noted that past SheVibe covers have featured adult personalities James Deen, Tristan Taormino, and Shine Louise Houston, as well as pleasure products companies Tantus, Fun Factory, Spareparts Hardwear, and Vibratex.

“Kelly hails from the long lineage of ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ — ok, not really, but she is most definitely a hero in the battle for female empowerment, sexuality, and self-acceptance,” SheVibe Partner Thor R. Mikelic said.

He dded, “She’s an intelligent, driven business woman who runs a PR firm while simultaneously staying geeky enough to possess an uncanny grasp of everything otherworldly. She’s just the right combination of sexy, sassy, worldly, and intellectual. We were super curious about what makes this unique woman tick — we were not disappointed, and we’re kind of crushing.”
