The Story of Sarah Baartman The Z List Dead List

    • History

Kim Kardashian is now famously a billionaire, mostly from successful promoting and selling shapewear underwear which she promotes using her ass-sets. But was she the first person to commodify this particular body part and where has the idea of a large bottom being a sexual marker come from? Is it purely natural does actual idea of a large booty equating to being hypersexual  have sinister undertones? I recorded this interview with Laura Snowling several years ago but found the story incredibly sad and troubling so decided against putting it out. However, I think this was cowardly and it is a REALLY thought provoking tale.  I hope you enjoy it, and I'll make sure I do something more upbeat next time. Laura Snowling is a project manager at The British Museum without her I would never have heard of Sarah or her story.  Sarah Baartman Support me on Ko-fi
