She has been a great supporter and a true inspiration in the field of positive sexuality and agreed there was a lack, and a very obvious need, for a sex education video for people of size. I hope the DVD will help men, women, and couples of size become more confident in their sexuality, explore their amazing bodies, and communicate better as to their sexual desires.” As a BBW model/performer, Kelly is passionate about introducing body positive messages into the media spotlight, and promotes her ongoing mantra of “Confidence is Sexy” through a variety of mediums.

A proponent of “intelligent hedonism,” Kelly speaks on college campuses and more on how to intelligently navigate female sexuality, negative media messages about size, and bullying, all while developing self-confidence, class, and inner strength. Kelly continues, “When I started my research into plus size sexuality, I found there were plenty of blogs and a few books on the subject, but no educational videos, either from lack of production support or hesitation about covering the subject matter. I’m so pleased to have jessica and Wicked take this step with me. Wicked is a phenomenal company when it comes to sex education outreach everywhere, and having their support in creating this DVD is extremely humbling.” “When I first began Guide to Wicked Sex, I wanted it to be an all-inclusive educational resource for every adult looking to enrich their sex lives,” says jessica drake. “The plus sized community deserves better sex education, support, and inspiration, and Kelly Shibari is the perfect person to co-direct and narrate Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size to ensure the project’s genuine authenticity.” Jessica continues, “From the day I met Kelly, I hoped to collaborate with her on this project, and over time I've gotten to know her both as a friend and fellow educator. Her knowledge and creativity, coupled with a desire to share both in order to better the sex lives of an underrepresented and equally important demographic, will take this instructional to a whole new level. As always, I am extremely grateful to Wicked Pictures for their constant support and for allowing me to continue to expand the Guide to Wicked Sex brand, helping women and couples of all kinds enhance their sexuality.” A fervent educator on sexual health and wellness, drake is a highly sought-after sexual wellness speaker who lectures at universities, teaches seminars, and runs workshops globally.
