The Big Business of Big Boobs 

The porn industry is in upheaval. But that's given Sarah Rae the opening she needed

As the video begins, a round-shouldered brunette in a purple blouse smiles at the camera from an overstuffed leather couch. She flips a lock of brown hair away from her chest, revealing cleavage that plummets beneath the frame of the YouTube player.

"Hey, guys!" she says. Her voice is equal parts Valley Girl and laid-back babysitter. "It's Sarah Rae here. I wasn't doing anything on Sunday night, so I thought I could take some questions and answer them for you."

The camera swoops forward, bringing into view the jiggling chasm between her shirt and the vast acreage of her braless bosom. The frame lingers for a few seconds and swings back to her face.

"Here we go," Rae says.

Collected via Twitter, the questions are exactly the sort you'd expect to get from Internet porn fans.

How old were you when your breasts first started developing?

"Well, it's clearly obvious that I was born as a pair of tits," Rae replies, grinning sweetly at the camera. "My mother just gave birth to tits, and I grew around them."

Did you go to college? What is your major?

Again, instead of a straight answer, Rae prefers to riff out a deflection. "I went to Self-Suck University," she says. "And my major was sucking twenty-pound tits."

Rae is exaggerating, but only slightly. By her own measurement, her breasts collectively weigh somewhere between seventeen and nineteen pounds. Her current cup size is 36K, recently upgraded from 36JJ. Her cleavage alone, she says, is nine inches long.

Another question from the Twitterverse: What do you think of the body inflation fetish?

"I would love, love, love, to do more breast-expansion videos," Rae trills. She's referring to a subset of the body-inflation fetish, whose fans get off by imagining various organs (usually dicks, boobs and bellies) growing to unmanageable sizes.

"I'm pretty busy with my site and everything like that," Rae continues. "So I haven't been making role-play clips as much as I'd like to."

At 26, St. Louis-based Sarah Rae is a five-year veteran of the porn industry, a marketplace generally assumed to be an exploitative fleshpot where vulnerable young women are seduced by money, only to be used up and thrown away. Rae can attest to the existence of those abusive dynamics in porn today, as well as the ubiquity of creepers eager to give women in the sex industry a hard time (there's a reason "Sarah Rae" is not her real name).

Yet she's among the thousands of performers taking their trade off the traditional smut grid, choosing the decentralized, niche-heavy market of "amateur" webcam streaming services in place of established film studios and agencies. For her, web-camming is a way to own (and monetize) the oversized breasts that for years had been a source of torment.

The YouTube Q&A session is a far tamer version of the videos Rae regularly uploads to YesBoobs.com, the website she founded last year. Those clips feature Rae and other well-endowed women stripping, trying on different bras and running oil-slick dildos between their breasts. On webcam sites, viewers pay for every minute of Rae's time, and she becomes the star of her fans' particular fetishes. For select audiences, for as much as $9.99 per minute, she indulges in role-playing scenarios that oftentimes veer into the surreal.

Rae fields one last question from a Twitter fan:

Can you suck your own toes?

"I can, so I guess that's how we'll end this," she says. First, however, she wants to show off a "nifty thing" she can do with her toes. Rae hefts one foot to the camera and wiggles a yellow-painted pinky toe up and down.

"All the foot guys, they always lose their shit when I do that," she says, laughing. "OK, here we go. Let's see if I can suck on my own toe. I'm going for the big one."

Rae grasps her right foot in both hands, pushes it toward her face and catches the big toe in her mouth. She gives it a suck and lets go with a pop, followed by a loud giggle. Before signing off, she promises that she'll make future videos where she can answer "more in-depth questions" from fans.

She blows a kiss to the camera. "Bye, have a good one!"
