WHY HUNGRY VIRGIN? (SUBTITLES HERE)

The other night we got together for a drunken conversation about politics behind living a Hungry Virgin Lifestyle. Overall we just make awkward jokes about having sex with each other, but we did talk a little bit about how Hungry Virgins came to be. Here are some main points:
- Being a Hungry Virgin is about resisting heteronormative and patriarchal ideas about virginity, sex, and pleasure
- Being a Hungry Virgin is about celebrating and reclaiming our bodies and celebrating our relationships with food
- Being a Hungry Virgin is about reclaiming stereotypes and turning them into humour as a form of resistance
- Being a Hungry Virgin is about resisting the stereotype that fat people are de-sexualized or don’t fuck/can’t fuck/shouldn’t fuck
-Being a Hungry Virgin is about recognizing that all bodies are good bodies and that connecting across difference in the face of a destructive climate that hates all of our bodies is a bad ass form of resistance
NOTE: Being a Hungry Virgin doesn’t actually have to be about sex at all if you don’t want it to. We went straight to sex with it but really it can be whatever you want it to be. It can also be something you don’t personally identify with and that is totally solid too, there are plenty of Hungry Virgins out there, and it’s not for everyone. I think at its core though, it is about a reclamation of our bodies, a celebration of food and a transformation of stereotypes that are used against fat bodies into a humorous form of resistance.
ON FAT ACCEPTANCE: We are not trying to create a rift between people who organize around body politics and those who organize around a framework of fat acceptance. We think FA is really important, but we are more invested in organizing around a politic that opens up social movements and creates room for a multiplicity of bodies and experiences. (There is room for fat acceptance in there!)
One last thing: The mom comment might have been a little insensitive – Glitter Politic does NOT hate moms, nor did we mean to homogenize all of them or insinuate that they are frumpy.
p.s. if you were wondering about the sexy off-camera voice, it belongs to the hot Hungry Virgin Julia. Thanks for asking the important questions!
