Big On The Beach, Is A Trip For Plus Sized People To Hedonism II Resort In Negril Jamaica

Sometimes Size Does Matter!

Sometimes Size Does Matter!



Description: LoveVoodoo.com, one of the nation’s fastest growing “Adult Dating” sites, and their sister company LoveVoodooTravel.com have decided to host an event for the plus size crowd, named "Big on the Beach" which will be held June 1st - 8th 2010 at the infamous Hedonism II resort in Negril Jamaica. When asked, why focus on a trip for full figured people, Todd Crawford, the owner of LoveVoodoo said “ LoveVoodoo.com and LoveVoodoo events are known for being very inclusive as opposed to most other events being very exclusive. We want people of all races colors and sizes to attend our events! However we have found that in the past several years, many of our full figured guests felt uncomfortable around some of the others. We want our members to let loose and feel uninhibited. I own the site and have been in the Lifestyle for 12 years, and I must admit I still feel self conscious that first day when I am at the nude pool! I thought by giving the plus sized crowd their own event they would feel more comfortable, and hopefully travel with us on a future trip also. Another reason for this trip is that many of our male guests are interested in meeting voluptuous women and have been requesting a trip like this for several years, it is by far our number one request. In fact we are already 30% sold out!” It seems at Big on the Beach, Size Does Matter
