#RealTalkTuesday. (Photo by @NeveuxStudios) I recently had a person leave a very long comment on one of my “sexual” pictures. I screen shotted it before I deleted it. I’ve read it several times since because the core of this person’s message made me think… “It is sad that girls as beautiful as you use their bodies as billboards, to express confidence or strength. Your body is a gift for yourself that you do not need to put on display for men to drool over….” My response is this: What is sad is that “girls” are not allowed to openly embrace their sexuality. What makes you think that I am doing this for a man? I am not allowed to be sexy and feel sexy for ME? I am a WOMAN and my body IS a gift and I get to choose how I treat it and how I “display” it. I am an intellectual, sexual, emotional, and spiritual person. I LIKE SEX (Gasp! Did that make you uncomfortable?) It shouldn’t, it’s a healthy part of life. (And guess what? I bet you like it too). Does my sexuality define me? No. It is only a piece of who I am, but a piece I am not ashamed of. I am confident and I am strong. My hope is that other women can start to understand their own sexuality and power, not for others, but for themselves. The sooner you learn to love yourself and embrace who you are, the happier you’ll be and the sooner you can begin to truly love others.
