That’s My Fetish: Giantesses

Fetish: Giantess

What exactly is a giantess fetish?
It’s often called macrophilia, and it’s where I’m dominated by a larger woman than myself — either physically bigger or role-playing that she’s bigger than me. The actual size difference can vary depending on the mood, but generally, I just like having a larger woman be in charge and call all the shots. Something about the lack of power and control is enticing to me. Even outside of sexual encounters, something about a statuesque woman turns me on.

When did you first realize that you had a thing for taller women?
That one is easy. Back when I was a kid, I saw the 1990s remake of Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman featuring Daryl Hannah. Something about seeing this giant woman was extremely exciting. I was like 5 or 6 years old at the time so I wasn’t sexually aware by any means, but I knew seeing this spectacle was making me feel weird in a good way.

As far as exploring, things just kinda slowly started rolling from there. After seeing that movie, sometime later I was able to rent and watch the original from the 1950s. I also rewatched Alice in Wonderland and realized that the way she changes sizes had taken on a new meaning and experience for me.

Is there any overlap between this and the BBW scene? Like does BBW porn do it for you, or is it more, like, Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones?
I wouldn’t say there’s overlap per se, and I definitely tend toward more of the latter. But I do enjoy all body types, so if a model is, say, a 6-foot-4 BBW, but very assertive in her height, I’m all about it. She also, however could be average build, a bodybuilder or very slender. It doesn’t really matter. As long as she owns her size and knows she’s in charge, I’m game. I’m also very much into the idea of growth.

How then does this play out in a sexual experience — whether it’s via masturbation or with a partner?
With masturbation, I either watch clips — there are fetish films devoted to this — look at comics or just imagine scenarios. As far as sexual encounters, I’ve only ever really shared this with two of my sexual partners, one of whom was 6-foot-1. I got her to put on a snap-button shirt, and she’d pretend to grow. She would stretch and talk about her clothes fitting tighter until she stretched open the buttons on the shirt. We had her ride my face, and she basically pretended she was double my size.

Have you told anyone else about it?
Not really. A few people know, but I mostly don’t bring it up out of shame and embarrassment. Because we have forums in the community where we share our stories, and a lot of other members have horror stories involving loved ones leaving them once they shared their fetish — I’m talking people getting divorced since their partners now considered them “freaks.” Seeing that caused me to internalize that more likely than not, this fetish would be too weird for most people to accept.

You mentioned a previous partner being over 6 feet tall. Do you specifically seek out tall women to date?
I’ve tried approaching tall women either on dating websites or in person, but I usually get shut down before I get that far because I don’t meet their height requirement. Shoot, I’m short enough that don’t even meet most average-sized women’s height requirement. That’s the irony of the whole thing.
