LOS ANGELES—Multiple award-winning BBW star Kelly Shibari returns from her Fetish Con Guest of Honor duties to host Penthouse Forum’s Twitter Chat this week. The Forum, one of America's best-known couples’ erotica magazines, will hold the hour-long social media event Wednesday, August 13 at noon PST/3 pm EST, using the hashtag #ForumForUs. The chat will follow an “Ask Me Anything”-style format, where participants can open up conversations and interact with the guest host directly.
“I’m so thrilled to be asked to host #ForumForUs,” said Kelly. “I absolutely love social media, and to have the opportunity to chat with fans both old and new about Penthouse Forum, plus size sexuality and more is going to be an absolute blast! To take part in the chat, just log into your Twitter account and search for the hashtag #ForumForUs. When the discussion starts, say hello and tell me what's on your mind. Log in, ladies and gents—it’s going to be a super-fun Hump Day treat!”
Kelly’s groundbreaking stint as the first plus-size model on the cover of a major men's magazine with its June 2014 issue garnered immediate and positive mainstream media coverage from Huffington Post, Nerve, The Daily Beast, Examiner, and others.
“We’re very happy to be taking our relationship with Kelly to a new level, which will give our readers and her fans a unique opportunity to interact with her,” said Penthouse Forum Managing Editor Eric Danville. “Plus, she’s a doll—so it should be fun for everyone!”
Kelly Shibari will also be a featured guest on University of Toronto Radio’s Sex City this evening. The plus size performer will chat with host Jon Pressick on the creation of the first-ever sex education film for people of size, Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size, a collaboration with Wicked Pictures and its contract star, writer, producer and director, Jessica Drake.
"As soon as I heard about Kelly's involvement in the film project, and the subsequent positive response it received, I knew I wanted to continue the conversation on Sex City,” said Pressick. “Toronto needs this conversation."
Kelly will also discuss her Penthouse Forum cover and her career in the adult entertainment industry on the show, which will air at 8 pm PST/11 pm EST on CIUT 89.5FM in the Toronto area, and streaming live globally here.

Interviews like these keep the conversation about plus size relationships, communication, confidence, and sexuality alive—thank you, Sex City, for having me on your show!”
