Buffie the Body Bares All in her Memoir: Vixen Icon

Wasn't sure where to place the story (but not the images), either in The Den or A Sista's Spot but anyhoo................... Big Grin





'Vixen Icon,' by Buffie Carruth, better known as Buffie the Body, starts out with the author's description of life in high school when her booty was, well, less plenteous.

"I often got depressed because I wasn't thick,'' Carruth writes. "All my life through school, I've noticed that girls had to be cute and pretty, or you had to be fine as hell with some ass and hips to be an 'in' girl. Even if you didn't have big breasts, it was cool as long as you had some ass. I didn't have any breasts, no ass, and no hips and that shit made me feel so insecure. I looked like a damn boy!''

Not anymore.



In her memoir, Carruth details how a visit to a mysterious "Dr. X," 25 miles from her home, gave her the magic formula to help her gain weight, or a voluptuous backside, thereby earning her the name Buffie the Body. She explains that Dr. X gave her a list of foods, including peanut butter and pasta, along with a prescription for an unnamed liquid appetite stimulant. While she was hopeful, she says, she was not convinced it would work. She filled the prescription and followed the doctor's orders.

"Believe it or not, in less than 2 weeks, I had already started noticing a weight gain!'' she writes. "My ass, hips and thighs were the first parts of my body to receive this blessing. I noticed a little weight gain in my stomach area, too, but not enough to get alarmed by. It was like my ass and thighs just took off and left the rest of my body. My body started changing so fast that it seemed like it happened overnight. Everyone was noticing it too-and I mean everybody!"

Carruth burst onto the scene several years ago with an appearance in rapper Tony Yayo's video, "So Seductive,'' becoming a household name among hip-hop entertainers and fans. As she puts it, she came a long way from "fighting, dating drug dealers, stealing, stripping and..." tricking. She used to carry a baseball bat in the trunk of her car in case trouble called. 



Carruth is one of seven children, including a younger sister, who died of ovarian cancer and to whom the book is dedicated. She grew up in Athens, Ga. and her real name is Buffie, based on a character, "Buffy,'' from her mom's favorite television show 'Family Affair.' The show was a situational comedy based on white middle-class family that ran during the 1960s-1970s.

The problem with 'Video Icon' is that Carruth breaks little ground on the life of a video vixen that already hasn't been broken by Karrine Steffan's seminal account in 'Confessions of a Video Vixen.' And unlike Carmen Bryan's memoir, 'It's No Secret: From Nas to Jay-Z, from Seduction to Scandal,' Carruth does not name A-list celebrities in her sexual exploits.

The story is written in a fairly pedestrian fashion. It also has some inconsistencies. Carruth, for example, writes about other women hating on her for competitive reasons. But it appears she has beef with Steffans. "I'm not a fan of Karrine's, but I don't feel any particular way about her. She made those choices, and she lived that life. I don't think it affected me directly. America as a whole has never looked at video girls in a positive light.

It's not Karrine's fault. It's all our faults, as a whole...Yes, I do agree that Karrine played her part in making it worse, especially by claiming she fell victim to the vicious Hollywood scene and then capitalizing off of her story, but the damage is done, and I don't even know how the image of a video girl will ever be repaired.''

Still, unlike the Hottentot Venus, who in the 1800's was forced to gyrate her ample buttocks as part of an exhibition around Britain, Carruth has made a choice.

"Yes, I admit that my ass was my main reason behind my success, but everyone can't expect it to happen as easily for them as it was for me,'' she writes. "I was one in a million at the time.

How does one go about asking this....oh well...here it go....

Does this mean her butt is fake? I mean, i haven't met people who didn't have a butt in high school, but visited a doctor as an adult and achieved...targeted booty growth?

Buffie the Body was a trick, huh? Ashame. But does explain the look.
I know I'm going to have my black card pulled again, but........
I don't find her attractive at all and I don't see what all the hoopla/hype is about Confused
On a scale of 1-10, I may give her a 1.3. With 6 Long Island Ice Teas, 3 Cuba Libre's, 4 Jack and Cokes, and 3 CC and 7's she may reach 2.6 at 3 am.
Ok, so how long before I can reapply for my card????? Big Grin

Being that you have been a member in good standing for quite a long time, I think that we will not pull your card on this occasion, but simply issue a warning. Next offense will be a six month suspicion of your black card. On the third offense, your card is pulled. You can reapply after a two year waiting period, barring no other inappropriate statements or comments.

As for Buffie, I do find her attractive, and her posterior is exceptional. I am not sure about her personality. I knew that she had stripped for a living, but I did not know that she had also been a prostitute.

Finally, as for her attire, I seriously doubt that this is what she walks around in when she is off work, just like I don't thing that most of the guys in this thread walk around shirtless or in their draws. It is about fantasy.

LOL... OCatchings, I hereby stand in solidarity with you. Buffie's butt is ugly IMO. When it comes to booty, the size and roundness are important, but there's something beyond that aesthetically that needs to be there. The shape of it just doesn't work for me. I'm more into the "teardrop" shape of a Melyssa Ford or Serena Williams. I find Buffie's booty too clumsy looking. We're in this together, Catch!

Nope, just fat.

But seriously, booty is a blessing, but there IS such a thing as too much of a good thing. Sure, if she walked by or I was at a club where she was stripping [depending on how it moved] I'd look at it until it was out of sight [and based on that booty, we're talking about 1-2 miles], but notice I said I'd look at IT, i.e., her booty, not HER.

Pre-emptive Question:

Is it wrong to sexually objectify someone who has sexually objectified themselves?

Since whatever she took was so successful ...... I wonder why the doctor never went public and tried to market his miraculous 'Grow-A-Booty' formula?? 19

LOL!! That reminds me of a lyric I wrote in my "rhyming, but not trying to be a rapper" high-school and college years: "I drop science like a clumsy chemist/Your chances of knockin' me out da box, 'bout the slimmest." Not bad in retrospect, but still, WTF was wrong w/ me...
lol

And don't get me wrong, I'd look too, but I'd always choose the tear-drop booty over the sledgehammer-booty.

KRESGE, didn't you once post a link to a hilarious website that discussed in GREAT DETAIL the various kinds of booty and which ones were nicer, etc.? Whoever ran that website had time on their hands, and booty on their minds... I'd love to see it again, though.
Will never understand the sexual turn on and fascination with the part of the body that excretes feces...

On another note.. I feel sorry that this sister felt so insecure when measuring herself by the desires of black men in her community that she ended up tricking herself, engorging herself unhealthily on food and then marketing herself to men ready to finally accept her...

I think her story is quite sad...

Though it is probably not possible.... She needs a do over..

Khalliqa, the part that's the sexual turn on does not excrete feces. The buttocks have nothing to do with feces. The association you make between the buttocks and the anus is understandable, but not necessarily the reality.

Ditto. I'm sure she's making up the story of the Magic Ass-Growing Formula (in part because of what EBONYROSE says about the fact that he never marketed it), but even if she's making it up, the story really says some disturbing things about the mindset.

I would say yeah to VOX's comment, if I believed you did not intentional make the link as an attempt to negatively spin this [make it dirty] ... So I'll just say, you're female ... you don't need to understand.

But I do agree that the woman has major issues that will only intensify when gravity starts working. I hope she's banking some of that cash she's making.

But that said, I can't knock her hustle. In my mind, there is no difference between what she does and what Iman, or any other "image of beauty" does ... she selling an image that she uses to define herself.
+1 to what Kweli said and what kresge told catch (and by proxy Vox). 16


Squats and deadlifts can stop gravity in it's tracks. I have helped several women "grow a booty" (can't believe I even typed that lol) with the right exercises and nutrition. Everyone isn't capable of Buffie size, but anyone can improve the look of their glutes/hamstrings.

And is this process reversible, as well?? Confused In other words ... is there a 'reduce-a-booty' exercise and nutrition program? 19

Unless we are talking about rolls of fat and/or cellulite, why would anyone want to reduce a booty. That's crazy talk!!! laugh

Full squats, IMHO, are the best booty exercise around.

Thank you. That or it's Becky talk: "Does this dress make my butt look big?" Roll Eyes


lol

Yeah ... well ... for your information, there are some of us that wish we could 'tone' our 'assets' to make them better proportioned to our bodies, since we're the ones that have to dress them! Eek

It's 'crazy talk' to y'all (menfolk) but that's because you get to simply enjoy the benefits of the look of a nice, well-rounded booty in a pair of tight, body-hugging, perfect-fitting jeans .... you aren't the ones that's got to fit it in there, though!! Eek

You suffer none of the considerable amount of energy that is exerted to maneuver one's 'gluts' into a pair of freshly washed and hot out of the dryer, pair of man-magnets ... the ones that make your head spin around on your shoulders like Linda Blair! Big Grin

But let me tell you ... by the time the mission is accomplished, it is no small feat and not for the faint of heart! ek Oftentimes athletics are involved! lol

I remember in high school they told me that if you 'walked' on your butt it would make it go down. They lied to me. nono

Oh ... and K4R... the difference is, when Buffy asks that question ... she's hoping to GOD that you tell her "Yes!" Big Grin

Khalliqa, the part that's the sexual turn on does not excrete feces. The buttocks have nothing to do with feces. The association you make between the buttocks and the anus is understandable, but not necessarily the reality.


For me its all together.. would it more accurate to say the part of the body which encapsules the rectum and subsequently sandwiches fecal matter on a regular basis?

I'm sorry I can understand the fascination with other parts of the body because they also serve a reproductive function... but anything associated with or even near fecal matter is gross to me..

It has nothing to do with my gender.. other women seem to be fascinated by the flesh enclosed around rectum's too..

But OA's post below reminds me that in the end sexual satisfaction in this world has no such taboos about cleanliness.... the goal is friction until satisfaction.. *le sigh*

I think she must have been traumatized in some way... what irks me is that there is a market for her pathology... and no help for her sickness .... meaning there is no one in her community (mother, sisters? , aunts, lil ole lady down the street/ it has already been well established that black men ABHOR being seen as someone who helps female self esteem.. fearing the "save a ho" label- presumably preferring to take advantage of a hoe than help one) that had enough wisdom and sway with her to show her a better way in life...

I would say no. It doesn't encapsulate the rectum. The rectum is within the body cavity, and there's nothing the glutes do to sandwich it or anything else. The main functions of the gluteals are to enable sitting down, and to support the erection of the spine when standing.

In a lot of primate species, the female buttocks are expressly used for sexual attraction. And it makes sense in humans as well, because of how easy it is to access the vagina from the rear.

You do realize how close the vagina and anus are to each other, right? If you ever find yourself in the mood for some physical self-exploration, check out how any given spot on the buttocks is a lot farther away from the anus than the vagina is from the anus.

It must gross you out to see children sitting on somebody's lap. And you must be pretty scared to sit down on a chair or bench anywhere in a public place.

In our culture we clean ourselves for this very reason.. but to answer you, I find it kind of gross but NECESSARY for procreation.. so not much of a choice there if I want to have children.. at the very least..

I would be grossed out if someone sat their naked rear on someone, yes.. and yes sitting in public places where someone's placed their exposed rear would gross me out.. because during sex you have this part of your body exposed and primed for utilization to enter or play with.. the latter part is gross..

I think you get that..

you're just joshin..

Theoretically it sounds like you have a point. But somehow, it all boils down to the old expression, "More cushion for the pushin,'"... Go figure.

But to me, roundness (and its concomitant rearward protrusion), smoothness and firmness are more important than size. The presence of these three features, even without the added size, perfectly yields the desired bouncy slappy effect.

Wait, I'm not supposed to be talking like this to you, am I? Sowwy. Red Face
