Logic and love prevailed over sizeism and antiquated gender roles! To see a larger woman with a smaller (be it shorter or skinnier) man just isn't the norm (unless the woman is a tall and statuesque model — then it's OK).
If they are desirable to me, I'm not going to fight my instincts to fit into some kind of cookie cutter set of expectations. Its just a preference, like some women have for taller guys or shorter guys. Doggy meant that my legs were nearly closed and he was nearly in the splits.
