Kelly Shibari

From her background in design and construction in mainstream film and television production to performing in front of the camera as the sexually-charged figurehead for chubby Asian girls everywhere, Kelly Shibari is a stereotype-breaking tour-de-force. Her site, PaddedKINK, is the premier destination for plus-size fetish performers, and she has the distinct honor of having been the only plus-sized Fleshlight Girl in existence. PaddedKINK won a 2011 Feminist Porn Award and a 2012 BBWFanFest Award for its efforts to bring plus-sized kink and fetish to the public.

Shibari's career was launched by The Score Group's first-ever interactive DVD, Plush Control. She has since performed in projects with Evil Angel, Zero Tolerance, Evasive Angles, Rodney Moore, Devil's Film, and Red Light District, amongst many others, and has been nominated several times for adult industry awards. She was also featured as the first-ever pull-out centerfold for AVN Magazine in its only issue to address BBW pornography. She will also be appearing in a non-sex role in an upcoming Wicked Pictures feature film.

Shibari also runs a Social Media Marketing consultancy for the adult industry, ThePRSMGroup, and has spoken at numerous adult and mainstream conventions on the use of social media as a marketing and branding tool for the adult industry, including AVN and BlogWorldExpo. Shibari boasts an impressive 47,000+ Twitter follower count, the most of any plus-sized performer on the social network.

Shibari gained additional international recognition in August 2011 when she announced that she would perform a fan-based blowbang/bukkake event when the Japanese women's team won the Women's World Cup. The event was streamed online on Saturday, August 7. The resulting DVD,  “Kelly Shibari Is Overloaded,” was released to the public in June 2012 and was the #1-selling DVD on Videos4Sale for that month. Shibari recently entered a distribution deal for “Kelly Shibari Is Overloaded” through Monarchy Distribution and Exile Distribution, and has been invited to a screening / Q&A by the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health in Rhode Island of the film, considered by some as a unique "feminist bukkake" film.

Acclaimed director Jonas Akerlund hand-picked Shibari for a prominent role as a confident, sexy, plus-sized beach bunny in the music video for German industrial/metal band Rammstein's "Mein Land," debuting on Friday, 11/11/11. Kelly was also featured in a promotional campaign for the world premiere, adding to her international appeal.

Currently, Shibari writes a monthly column for adult industry magazine XBIZ, operates her social media consultancy and produces/directs content for PaddedKINK - and has a few other projects in the works, including a series of books, a breast cancer fundraiser and collaborating on a couple of upcoming conventions. Originally from Japan, Kelly currently calls the West Coast her home and constantly confuses her colleagues with her old-fashioned, Eastern sensibilities.
