 Jose Luis
At the young age of nine Jose Rios’s mother sat him down and gave him an extremely detailed talk about the birds and the bees. Today, Jose is a communication expert, sexual health educator, and body positivity activist spreading the message that fat people are having sex and skinny people need to get over it. Having moved from Phoenix, Arizona a year ago, Jose managed to get caught in an “accidental” sex part on his first night in New York City and there hasn’t been a dull moment since.
