Tumblin’ Tumblweeds

Gro├čer Mann ganz klein!

It seems like just yesterday a platform that had hosted size shenanigans suddenly became much less welcoming to everyone who had come to rely on it. Now, with a change of ownership looming, #SizeTwitter is asking itself where they might decamp to if it became necessary.

I don’t have any advice other than that the Pornocalypse will continue to make hosting porn unfriendly to advertisers, which in turn will make it difficult for web investors to make money from sites that don’t have content moderation. So far, Twitter hasn’t made Google or Facebook money, and Musk doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to pay 38% over market value for something without hope of making a profit.

In any event, I would like to take this occasion to remind everyone that I continue to maintain and update the Where To Find Everyone page that I set up for Tumblwintr. Please feel free to give me your forwarding information as you determine next steps.

Larry Philby, RIP

I never met Larry Philby, never communicated with him, never really saw much of his art. What I know of him is solely due to SizeCon. He figured largely in many after-action reports, a generous spirit full of stories that made everyone feel accepted. It seems he found his own personal size community well before the internet made it much easier, which still gobsmacks me to think about. Seeing photos of him sharing his art made me chagrined that I ever thought a size get-together was beneath me.

Seize your joys while you can.

You Make The Rockin’ World Go Round

“Ready?” by Galiagan

Like twin hemispheres hovering over the size community, Undersquid and Aborigen have clenched together to promote #ButtCrushDays. After observing that there is a four-day gape between the non-sizey holidays National Ass Day (17 Oct) and International Ass Day (20 Oct), they determined that size fantasists should devote a rump week to celebrating the glory of butts giant and tiny.

Y’all can observe this occasion however you like, but in my house we call it ButtHugDays. Put me in that velvet pinch and hold me tight.

What’s It To You?

A Strange Couple by Lord Xarnor

Why do we share our size fantasies with others, and why do we care what others enjoy in size fantasy? I suppose everything on this blog is an attempt to answer one or both of these questions, but a couple of recent posts have me looking at them with renewed urgency. Aborigen asked himself what he still hopes to achieve with his size writing, and in one of those recurring “What would you really do?” threads on the Shrunken Women Board Azureeyes talked about the importance of hearing about the real people behind the fantasy. I’ve been watching the online size scene for 25 years and an active participant for almost a decade and I still don’t know exactly why I keep returning to it.

Size Sex Work

DO U RP?
DO U RP? by Aphrodite

I haven’t done nearly enough reading to have a full understanding of the history of sex work and the roles it has played in various societies over the millennia, and I would be very grateful for reading recommendations in the comments. In the meantime, I would like to discuss current attitudes and practices regarding sex work as they apply to the size fantasy community. Specifically, I would like to examine what is okay and not okay when approaching creators and others and how to calibrate one’s expectations. This is very obviously a discussion in process, and I am open to being corrected, clarified, and educated. Please respond with your thoughts below.

I bring all this up because when you tell someone how they should participate in the size community (create certain content, play certain roles), you are demanding that they perform sex work for your gratification.
