SQUASHING? FATSPLOITATION? HUH????

Okay, my gurrrrl, Billie Paige, told me about some new past time some people have. I am not one to judge anyone. People will do what brings them happiness and satisfaction. For me, at this moment, listening to D'Banj's "Gbono Feli" is what brings a smile to my face. It even reminds me that its been a while since I have seen hot amala gbi gbono feli feli. lol!!

Sorry for the digression, but yes, as for Squashing, I am trying to understand this new and seemingly growing phenomenon. Never heard about smashing? Well, watch the clip below.

   

Okay. We can all get through thsi together alright? **Takes deep breath**

Squashing is apparently the practice of heavily obese people landing their weight on others. Some people find it sexually stimulating, others...well, I don't know. Squashers definitely have their own community and accept themselves for who they are. Listen to the Queen of Squashers, Queen Racqui, explain squashing on Tyra Banks show.

Part 1:

Part 2:


And before we start hating, let me just mention that I respect everybody's 'hustle'. Clearly 'Fatsploitation' is how Queen Raqui makes her living and carries out her 'sexual revolution'.

But, walahi, me I no sabi.

What do you think about all this?

Just...Toluwa said...

okay, that just looks painful...why do people come up with stupid things like these?

Do they care about diabetes, or heart problems...am not putting them down, just saying 600pounds is dangerous! and she charges $300 an hour. I need to invent some stupid kind of sport and make money instead of doing suffer head!

Hey, but wateva floats their boat.

Amina said...

first of all, i loove the layout
alright, to be honest, i watched that show and couldn't watch more than 20 minutes....

like you, i respect everyone's hustle but wow.....

Red Sapphire said...

I must say i was like ewwwhhhhh!but really i think its suffer head oh! ahhh.

Shubby Doo said...

LG said...

joicee said...

Wow...we sho nuff live in crazy world.
Thanks for stopping by mines.

Zena said...

lol, I saw this when it first aired on the tyra show, still disgusted, ala, I cannot judge

what happened to the expo ehn Solomonsydelle?

IDK said...

I can't stand Tyra so I haven't seen this before but I'm a big supporter of whatever works for u...so I rili wnt judge...nt my idea of fun tho:P

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

@ woman in transition: Hey you grabbed first!!!! Welcome to the club and try to get your name on the top commenters list!

I was shocked the first time I saw it though, but, to each his own, shebi?

@ Aunty Remi: Hurry back, =)

@ Shona Vixen: Yes, please do not watch this at work it is definitely NSFW. See you soon!!!

@ Toluwa Lase: wow, my sista abeg make you no vex with these people oh! hahaha. I definitely see where you are coming from sha. I am just going to assume that Racqui and others are fully aware of the health issues related to their size. Believe it or not, I recently heard on NPR that some people who look obese or overweight are actually quite healthy despite their size.

But, I'm no specialist. How you dey? When you create a "stupid sport" that you can make money from, let me know oh!!!

@ Amina: Hey thanks for swinging by and liking the layout! Yes, oh, we can't knock anyone's hustle,. All I know is I don't want anyone heavier than me sitting on me. I don't think my body could take it. Actually, now I wonder if TinTin (guy) can take it?

lol! I must send him a message...

@ red sapphire: lol!!! If na suffer head, then me I no want at all, at all oh!!! lol!!!!

@ Shubby Doo: lol! Me too. =) How are you girl? that last post of yours was scary oh. That skeleton...

@ Ibiluv: In a way, it is crazy, considering the possible risk of asphyxiation (in my view). But, what do i know, I'm no expert.

@ LG: my sista! This na new sport oh! I don't think I will engage in it though, lol!!!

@ joicee: Sho nuff! lol!!! Thanks for taking the time to visit!

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

@ Aunty Zena: Hey you!!! Which expo? Abeg remind me oh. You know with 3 kids, my brain is mush... lol!

@ IDK: Thanks for swinging by! This isn't your idea of fun, eh? lol!!!! Not mine either, although they say you shouldn't knock something till you've tried it right? lol!

Temite said...

Aunty S, I actually saw that Tyra show and I was promptly disgusted so I wont bother watching it again. But na wa o, what kinda nonsence is that, why o why would anyone want to be squashed. I really really dont get it. Just like I dont get spanking and all other masochistic sexual trend. Me i want to be romanced and made love to not have my breath knocked out by a 600 pounds michelin. Ewwwww.

H2O-works said...

who are we kidding here, it's easy 4 pple to say...to each his/her own, but truly is that d case? We don't live in a vacuum u know. Im no health authority to say wat is right or wrong 4 ones health, but pls don't be deceived to thinking being obese is a good thing, at the same time don't reject urself or feel the need to make the world accept u, just be u. Love u and pple wud love u.

There are naturally big pple, and I see them as PEOPLE deserving of the respect they EARN. Wat I can't quite wrap my hands around (no pun intended) is the obesity that results from indiscipline and lack of control where pple just eat eat eat (the American Obesity), that wud be like accepting a drug addict cos "oh, that's just how he/she is -- to each his/her own...blah blah blah" not to say such pple be neglected, cos if I had a druggie friend, I'll try my best to get him/her out of it.

That Tyra broadcast is a typical case of one "strong" woman so to speak making herself/ being made a heroine, yes heroin for more women to take and inject into their systems, the so called antidote to ur pains of this world that slowly but surely eats you up inside and out until one day ur pains stop...because u stop living.

PS: Check urselves that you are not influencing or been influenced erroneously.

CIAO
....H2O

Rita said...

I'm glad that Queen Raqui is making a living by taking advantage of what would be seen as a flaw/shortcoming. She appears to have accepted herself for who she is.

But I hope she thinks about her health if she wants to squash for long...

funkola said...

funny how people take freaky to anotha level. dats nutters man!

isha said...

I couldn't watch that show when it come on TV, and I didn't watch it today either. lol. but that's just gross.

Raquel said...

Oh GROSS! $300 an hour is a big money but no way for me. I don't think she can live up to 60 year old. Health is the issue if we are fat. Well, good luck to her and more squashing...LOL.

clnmike said...

Lol, I have heard of it an i dont see the appeal. But to each their own.

geisha.song. said...

lol i jus saw the tyra show yesterday myself - so psycho! but hey, it beats masochism, and it helps the healthily challenged get their freak on, so ts all good! hehehe

Remi, United Kingdom said...

Meeen.. read this again.. and this is just sooooo wrong! lol... why will a normall person want apati human been to squash them is totally beyond me..... kai

Carlang said...

Now I've seen everything.

It really isnt fair though.
How come no one has come up with to turn my quirks into accepted acts of coolness.

When is picking my nose going to become accepted for instance..

Vera Ezimora said...

Unlike most people, I didn't find anything about this disgusting. Instead, I was amused. LOL. Those videos were just toooooooo funny.

Like Rita said, I'm glad that Queen R has turned what is considered a flaw into a bonus for her, but I hope she's healthy.

Other than that, that's hella funny 2 me. Hehehehehe. It is too too too funny.

Solomon Sydelle, so after all my warnings, u still went and bought urself a pair of boy shorts ehn? Dis babe, you no dey hear o!

Sorry for this late comment. I have been MIA for a few days. Trying to sort out some important issues.

I so do not feel that squashing thing at all. Wont even think about it if I'm offered money to be squashed.
