I get angry that there are teenage girls who think their bodies are untouchable
I do this because it still makes people angry that I do it.
They get angry that I’m touching my own body and claiming it as beautiful.
They are uncomfortable with the wildness, the grossness, the power… of womxn and our bodies.
They label it “crazy” and “disgusting.” They dedicate entire podcast episodes to it, entire articles and blog posts to tearing me apart.
It’s interesting, because I get angry, too.
I get angry that there are teenage girls and grown adults who think their bodies are untouchable.
I get angry that they don’t receive pleasure because they worry about the way they look and smell.
I get angry that most people with vulvas are having orgasms that are only a few seconds long (if they have any at all).
I get angry that 1 in 3 women experience sexual assault.
I get angry that most of my life I was taught that my value was in the perfection of my body.
I think what is crazy and disgusting is that our society is living in a state where we are completely disconnected from our bodies, from the natural world, and from one another.
The world needs your wildness
No more boxing yourself in. No more holding yourself back.
No more arbitrary definitions of what is “acceptable.”
Society’s rules are making us insecure and numbed out and boring.
Who would you be… what would you *FEEL* … if you didn’t play by those rules anymore??
Claim your wildness. Claim your aliveness. Claim your own pleasure.
You deserve to love your body and yourself. It’s yours.
