Feederism Community Report & Takeaways
The Feederism Community Report utilizes data from Feabie and was compiled as a service to the feederism community. The goal of this report is to collect and analyze publicly available data to help foster a deeper understanding of who we are as a community—we identify, what we like, where we live and what we want for ourselves.
We realize that this report only scratches the surface, and we hope it will be a precursor to future efforts to quantify and analyze this complex community of ours.
All data has been filtered to exclude old and inactive profiles, as well as recently created ones. The data within the report shows information only from Feabie profiles that have both been members for at least 30 days and have logged in within the last nine months.
All data available in this interactive report is drawn from profile information provided by Feabie members that is publicly visible within Feabie. No private or sensitive member data was used in the creation of this report.
The following insights are drawn from the Feederism Community Report.

If You Like Fat Women or Fat Men, Try Texas...
Feabie is much fatter than the average community, but if you like em really chubby, you may need to go south. It turns out that whether you like voluptuous bodies, big beer guts or huge flabby bellies, the place to be is actually Texas.

...Or Check Out the Developing World
With a media BMI of 34, fatboys and fatgirls abound in the Philippines, the chunkiest country on Feabie. It appears that the developing world may be developing fatter bodies as well—with countries like Guatemala, Thailand and the Dominican Republic boasting curvier women and chubbier men than any OECD country. Here’s the top 10 countries with the fattest men and biggest bellies (among countries with more than 10 profiles):
- Dominican Republic
- United States
- Trinidad and Tobago
- Czech Republic
Feabie is a Single, Obese 29 Year Old
OK, not literally. But the average age on Feabie is 29, the average BMI is 32.5, and single people make up 82 percent of all active members. What does that mean? It means Feabie skews young, obese and single. Half of Feabie is under age 29 and four out of five Feabie members are single, two factors that are related since younger Feabie members are disproportionately more likely to be single (the share of single members decreases among older members, reaching a low of ~64 percent among those over age 65). A median BMI of 32.5 puts Feabie just over the edge from “overweight” to “obese.” That also means that half of Feabie is well into the obese or morbidly obese category. Good job fatties, now who’s up for a buffet?
Actually, Feabie Weighs as Much as Ten 747s
Yes, you read that right. Feabie has a combined weight of over 7 million pounds (3.38 million kilos). And that comes out to a grand total of ten 747 jumbo jets, 130 blue whales or 6,000 Grand pianos.
On Feabie, Women are Fatter than Men
If you like fat women, Feabie is the place to be. It’s not just that curvy women abound, but on average, the women of Feabie are significantly fatter than their male counterparts. The average weight for all women on Feabie is 252 pounds (114.5 kg). The average weight for men? 210 pounds (95.3 kg). Not only are there more chubby women than men on Feabie, but women are also significantly more likely to identify as a feedee than men. While women only make up 11 percent of all feeders on Feabie, the share of female feedees is a whopping 30 percent. Women who like to be fed, it turns out, are thriving.
We Like Big Butts and We Cannot Lie
It turns out, Feabie has a favorite body part and it isn’t bellies. Big asses appear to win the day, narrowly edging out chubby bellies and big breasts by only a few hundred members. If we’re being honest, it’s more like a statistical three way tie. Thick love handles pull in fourth with other body parts trailing by a significant margin. What does all that mean? It means Feabie (well, largely the men of Feabie) is rather fond of a plump butt, a thick midsection and big boobs. So we’re not terribly unlike the rest of world, are we?
Not Everyone Want to be Immobile
While immobility remains a fantasy for many on Feabie, we can finally put to rest the myth that all feedees wish to gain to immobility or that all feeders want to make someone immobile. Based on profile data, the vast majority of those with a weight goal on Feabie have one well below 150 kg (~330 pounds) and very few have real-life goals to gain beyond 200 kg (~440 pounds) into supersized BBW or BHM territory. This isn’t to kink shame anyone who fantasizes or wants to be an immobile SSBBW or SSBHM—that fantasy is shared by around 13 percent of active Feabie members—simply to point out that such goals represent only one part of the wide spectrum of weight gain goals. Some of us want a little belly flab, some of us want a huge ass, and some of us want to be Supersized BBW or BHM. It’s all good.
Feeder/Feedee and FA/BHM/BBW Dating is Complex
Even though Feabie is partly a dating site, the results are split among what Feabie members want. Around 45 percent of Feabie members say they are single, yet only around 33 percent are looking for a relationship or for dates. By contrast, 43 percent of Feabie members are looking for friends and 37 percent are looking for online chat. That means a lot of single feeders, feedees, fat admirers and BBW/BHM are looking for dates and relationships, but some are simply looking for friends or online connection. Feeder/feedee dating and BHM/BBW dating, it appears, is a complicated thing.
Don’t Rule Out Smaller Cities
Not only are there higher concentrations of Feabie members in many smaller cities than bigger ones, but smaller cities also appear to be significantly fatter than their more urban counterparts. Yup, it turns out the fat women and men are concentrated in relatively small metros. Montgomery, AL, Henderson, NV, Gainesville, GA, Chula Vista, CA, Murfreesboro, TN and Scranton, PA top the list, with median BMIs greater than 40—putting them squarely in the morbidly obese category. It turns out, if you like chubby women or chunky men, you may not have to leave home after all.
Many BBWs are SSBBWs
Because Feabie doesn’t have a separate identity tag for SSBBW, curvy, chubby and supersized women are all lumped together in a single category. However BMI data provides some clues as to how many of those women might be supersized BBWs (caveat: there’s no strict definition of what makes someone go from thick girl, to BBW to SSBBW, so we offer this analysis with a grain of salt). Super obesity begins at a BMI of 45 and many consider a BMI higher than 50 to be SSBBW territory. Using that metric, the data suggests over a third of all BBW-identified women on Feabie are actually supersized BBWs themselves.
Growth-specific Kinks Rule the Day
Among kinks it’s no surprise that the top five is dominated by ones that deal with growth explicitly. Tight clothes and buttons popping claim the number one slot, with breast growth and stretch marks taking four and five:
- Tight Clothes/Button Popping
- Role Play
- Breast Growth
- Stretch Marks
As the list goes on, though, non-growth kinks have a strong showing, with spanking; BDSM; growing unhealthy; underwear and immobility rounding out the top 10. Beyond that, popular growth kinks include pregnancy (13th); scifi gaining (15th); and macro/micro (19th).
Gender Impacts Popular Kinks
Some of our kink rankings are gendered (reflecting the disproportionate number of men on Feabie), resulting in some misleading data points. For example, those into growing breasts have earned that kink a fourth-place spot, but muscle growth is resigned to 22nd. Obviously an interest in large breasts or growing breasts is one that is more likely to be shared by men, while an interest in muscle growth is more likely to be shared by women. Because there are significantly fewer women than men on Feabie, it should be expected for results to skew in such a way. If we weighted the results by gender, we’d likely see less of a gap between those who like huge boobs and those who like huge muscles, or those into mpreg and those into pregnancy.
