Wow, I wouldn't have thought of it, but @2 and @3 have some very helpful solutions.
@4 has an excellent and simple physics suggestion. Time to plan a vacation.
I think yesterday's letter is much more likely to be fake than today's. (As spelled out in comments regarding some very specific details that go with fantasy.) But I agree with Dan: we don't expect him to keep an army of private eyes on hand to check details, including whether a letter writer *really* fantasizes about doing it in a clown car or whatever. With 7 billion people, someone out there is dealing with a problem like any given SLLOTD.
Put an eyebolt into a ceiling rafter. Hang a large pulley on it. Put another eyebolt in a wall stud as far as possible away. Buy 10-15 feet of 1/2" bungie cord (NOT the straps, but the thicker stuff off a spool at an industrial supply hardware store). Put him in a harness, attach the bungie through the pulley, and tension it to - whatever is easy to pull (30-40 pounds?) and secure to the wall stud. He now weighs 40 pounds less on your back. And is lighter still if you go lower to the floor. Repeat with another line if you want him lighter still.
But as others have said, learning HOW to lift carefully is required regardless of any hardware.
Is this perhaps motivation for him to drop a few pounds? He's not massively overweight, but couldn't everyone stand to lose 15-20 pounds? And she sounds game - what motivation would he offer for some joint gym time so she can do some lifts and squats in preparation? 2 hours a week of enthusiastic cunnilingus?
If you've got back problems, you should be doing this anyway. Start slow with exercises that don't overly stress the weak areas of your back (physical therapist can provide direction). Strong back muscles are your best defense against serious problems like herniated/slipped disks.
I think there's more than one market out there for you.
If you're careful, you can do a piggyback lift with relatively little strain to the back. If you watch the video, the second lift she does is a piggyback, and most of the guy's weight is on her hips, not her back.
It's kind of like backpack theory (not the little book bags, but a real camping backpack). With a proper wight belt, most of the weight of a backpack is carried on the hips, not the shoulders.
So if the LW has good strong legs and a good sense of balance and center of gravity, and they are careful how they set it up, this should be doable. She may want to try practicing with lighter people (a younger brother or another lighter girl or whatever) to see if she can manage it, and work her way up to someone the size of her BF.
He might get a little lighter and you will get a lot stronger
But I'm guessing he'd rather see her in a weight-lifter's belt than in a tutu.
We're all suggesting carries and aids that assume he is still and letting her keep his center of gravity over her feet. But won't he actually be wanking it?
Side note: Two people each in life preservers having sex in deep(ish) water is a great time. The bobbing up and down effect is quite nice.
When you embed videos in these it crashes the Savage Love iPhone app. Something for the tech savvy at risk youth to investigate perhaps.
This doesn't mean go out today and carry this guy on your back. Experience, technique and confidence are required also. So if it is something you want to do, get to a gym (crossfit seems particularly suited towards this type of activity) and train up. You don't need to blessed in your DNA region to get strong enough to carry 200 lbs, anyone who puts in the time can get there.
What, you mean, like, with words and stuff? Are you kidding? What do you take me for, some kind of sniveling, needy asker of things? A real man doesn't ask, he sits around muttering to himself and pouting until his wife sighs and says, "OK, I give up, what is it?"
Contact improv is CREEPY.
I'm glad others have already suggested it. A great, easy way to pick up a lot of weight.
(If you think about it, TV shows like American Gladiators or even women in pro wrestling proved the audience for it, years ago.)
There's a lot of room for variations on the basic idea too, so not everyone into this stuff is going to be interested in the same things. For example, I know guys for whom the woman carrying the guy around is more along the lines of a domination/submission thing. (EG. Make the woman act like your personal human pony and carry you wherever you order her to take you.) Other guys are just into muscular women, so lifting and carrying heavier guys is kind of an extension of that. (More fun to be the human weight than just watching the woman lift bar-bells, right?) Others might simply be into bigger, taller women - where lift and carry helps emphasize the differences in their sizes. A few seem to even have more of a "superhero" fantasy going on, where they like real lift and carry sessions as well as women dressed up as Wonder Woman doing fake feats of strength in videos.
Anyway, just like not all men are equally strong, the same is true of women. Especially if a woman has a knee or back injury of some kind, I wouldn't probably recommend she try to get too involved with this fetish. But I can tell you first-hand, there are a LOT of incredibly strong women walking around out there. Some have gone their whole life trying to hide their physical strength because they thought of it as a negative/undesirable trait.
One of my former girlfriends was in that category .... naturally very strong but was almost ashamed of it because she thought "guys didn't like that". When she finally opened up to the reality that I liked it a lot, she showed me all sorts of crazy lift and carry stunts she could do. She actually got bored carrying me around, unless it was in public where she could get a bunch of strangers' attention. (One time she insisted on giving me a piggyback ride through the grocery store while she pushed the cart down the aisles. That was even a little too embarrassing for my tastes - but pretty fun at the same time!) So eventually, our interests turned to her picking up and carrying our bigger, heavier friends and usually surprising the hell out of them!
