Mallory Malloy aka Watchmalshrink became somewhat of an overnight sensation on the internet. I say "somewhat" because in truth it didn't happen overnight. Mal actually started doing videos tracking her weight loss in November 2009. But for some reason her popularity reached a crescendo recently, with new video posts garnering as many as 100 comments in a day. 

And just when when she hit her peak, Mal pulled the plug, leaving many fans of her Youtube videos wondering why she left and whether she'd ever come back. Well, the good news is, she is back, if only briefly, doing one last farewell video and interview answering some burning questions.

Your videos became very popular very quickly. Were you surprised by it all and did the sudden surge in popularity overwhelm you to the point that it was a factor in your decision to delete your YouTube and Facebook accounts?

I was very surprised. When I originally posted my videos I thought I would get mostly other women posting on my account with various comments of encouragement. Instead, I received sexual comments from mostly men who at the most only said I should "tone up."
The latter surge of popularity did play a factor in my decision to delete my YouTube and Facebook accounts. I felt that the time and thought I was putting into correspondence and reading comments was more than should be acceptable since I am trying to devote my time to studying before Spring quarter starts.

There was some jerk on the web claiming his harsh remarks to you were the reason you pulled your accounts. I never really thought that was true, but can you address that and also tell us your primary reason for closing your accounts?
I feel that those people have their own issues going on. It was not at all a factor in my decision to close my accounts. I originally expected negative comments and the ones I received helped me to "toughen" up a bit. In fact, I think that the next time I'm insulted in real life I won't just be putting on a good face to it... I'll actually feel ok emotionally about it.
    As far as why I closed my accounts...
Well, in part it's because of my decision to pursue a career in the Medical Field. It's not just that having sexualized videos might lower my chances of getting accepted to a good Medical School, but also that my job and life will be devoted to caring for other people. I have to be strong emotionally and learn to be as selfless as I can.
I decided that evening that things like overwhelming positive attention can be very addictive and have a very negative effect on how I view and interact with other people. I would like to stay humble and not let that sort of thing go to my head.
One of the things that I think made you so popular and interesting is the fact that you embraced your curves. In my experience while ethnic women typically embrace their curves (because the men in their communities are very vocal about liking voluptuous women), White women often seem to want to lose their curves. Artist Dan Clowes ("Ghost World") has a great comic book called "David Boring" and the female lead in that comic, the curvy Wanda Kraml, decries that her ass is "the bane of her existence." That seems to sum up the way a lot of White women feel about having an ample backside. But not you. How did you come to embrace your curves and has it opened you up to dating men of other races who like that body type?

Yes it is true that curves are not as well accepted in White culture (well, counting out curves from breasts, of course.)  I figure that it would be near impossible to get rid of my "curviness" anyway. Even if it were possible, that doesn't necessarily equate to manageable. At some point you have to make a choice: either you change the way you look or you accept yourself despite the applicable culture you live in. I think most would agree, whining is unattractive to most males whatever their physical preference.
As far as interracial relationships, I have already been open to dating other races. I have gone on dates with White, Asian, Latino, and Arabic men. However, the only non-White boyfriend I've ever had has been Asian.
If a man is physically attractive to me on some level and has an interesting personality... well, it doesn't matter what race they are as long as they can find me attractive as well! Of course, receiving so many positive video comments from "dark and handsome" men has certainly made me feel that being a relationship with someone raised in a "curve" accepting culture...well, it would probably be much more compatible.

You mentioned that you liked getting the attention that came with your videos. Would you consider yourself a bit of an exhibitionist, and if so, is this a newfound quality that you discovered through YouTube or have you always been this way?

I would now consider myself an exhibitionist! This actually scares me a bit because before the YouTube videos I've acted like an exhibitionist maybe once or twice, but I didn't really consider it to be apart of my character. Of course, this also goes back to one of things I considered before I closed my accounts.   

In the final video you did, where you acknowledged that you enjoyed people appreciating your videos, you wore a black leotard as opposed to the bra and panties combo that you wore in your prior videos. Was there any reason you chose to change this once you decided not to post a video under the guise of tracking your weight loss?

You know... I've been pondering this. I suppose that I equate nudity to sexuality. Or perhaps by being more clothed I'm subconsciously controlling the level of sexuality I'm expressing...
One thing I've found is that guys who are into women built like you are really into it, almost to the point of it being fetishistic. Is that something that you've encountered and does it bother you or are you okay with it? If you're okay with it, why?

I've noticed this as well but not just from those who prefer plump butts and/or large lower body... I've also found it to be true from those with big breast fetishes. It's pretty amusing to watch the two differing sides objectify various parts of my body. They usually are sooooo into their respective fetish that they've got it all ruled out down to specifics. I mean they'll have it down to a sort of sexual science. I've visited the site and I've seen similar sites for difference preferences for breasts, waists, hair etc. It's kinda silly but understandable. I mean, once you've created an object out some part of a human being it's fair game to then pull it apart and analyze it. I guess it's just human nature.

Being curvy, are there any recurring themes you find guys want to explore with you behind closed doors?

Ha! Anal! I even dated one guy that really was more of a breasts lover. However, later in the relationship he expressed to me that of his two fantasy things to do with me one would be anal sex and I quote "because of your big ass and all that..." Hilarious! What is it with big asses being equated to anal sex. I mean my thoughts on whether or not I do it or like it aside...what is up with that! Ok I get the general correlation of big ass...anus...anal sex... but...but... Ha! It's silly Also, doggy style or reverse girl on top are popular ones ... However, the most popular is missionary with or without legs being put by my head or (I'm not sure what you'd call it) lying on my side so there's a front and back view. Hahahaha.... It's silly, I'm still nervous about not being a virgin anymore.

You've mentioned wanting to go into the medical profession in the future. You've also said that you feel your YouTube videos might be incompatible with that career choice. How do you feel about that - the fact that a woman cannot openly display her sexuality, even if tastefully, without it having some negative connotation on her professionalism?

It is sad that sexuality tends to reflect negatively on a woman's professionalism... I think that it might be linked to sexual harassment and the idea that still persists that if she didn't want "it" she shouldn't have dressed or acted a certain way. The idea that just because a woman is expressing her sexuality that she inviting and/or wants even "negative" sexual attention. Yeah, I think it's probably linked subconsciously to that so to keep sexual harassment down you have to keep the workplace and your "sexplace" quite far removed from each other.

Would you ever create another YouTube channel to please all us anxious fans of yours waiting to see more of you?

Well, it would certainly be fun! I'll be considering it as the school year progresses and I get a better gauge on how I'm doing with my newfound confidence.
Do you think voluptuous women have become more accepted in the mainstream and if so, what do you attribute that to? (J Lo, urban modeling, etc.)

Well, I do think it has become more acceptable and I would certainly attribute it to celebrities such as J Lo, Shakira, and Beyonce etc. In fact, I would attribute a lot of it to Latin and Black music becoming popular all over the world and in so many different cultures. Of course, there are other factors... 40's and 50's style clothing coming back in fashion... various size acceptance movements etc., etc. 

NOTE: For all of you who actually finished reading the interview, Mal did two videos for this interview but we scrapped the first one because of low lighting. However, that video is hidden as an Easter Egg on the website. Hint: it is in a fake ad below a blog post that relates to this subject matter. Also, it's a blog post that occurred within the last 2-3 months and concerns an Australian model. Good luck!
