Nude, eye contact, promoting fat bodies, Spock from Star Trek 

A reminder that Leonard Nimoy (Spock from Star Trek) made a book of photographs showing fat folks as hot and erotic to combat stigma: amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0979472725/

@troodon I just woke up. What do you want from me.

@Aradia Probably a lot better then his book of naked women in traditional Jewish garments

@Canageek Dr. Hanne Blank was a model for it too: hanneblank.com/

@Aradia @Canageek Huh... wasn't expecting to dive into a rabbit hole like that today, but thank you both.

Also damnit I wanna see if I can find a leak on Full Body Project now. It seems like an awesome idea (really they both are in different ways), but holy shit that's expensive, and unlike Shekhina I'm not seeing photos coming up when I search.

@Kyresti @Aradia Seattle's library couple probably get you out via interlibrary loan.

re: Nude, eye contact, promoting fat bodies, Spock from Star Trek 

@Canageek @Kyresti @Aradia just checked and SPL in fact owns a copy, though it's two holds deep

might also be useful info to those in the convo: king county library owns two copies, one is available, and they issue cards to seattle residents

@Canageek @Kyresti @Aradia worldcat is easily one of my favorite things on the internet :)

@Canageek @celesteh @Aradia its existence is my mother's main objection to Leonard Nimoy

and I agree that it feels kinda skeevy
