Crop Top

February 7, 2016

For anyone who knows me, for a longest time, crop tops were not something I felt comfortable wearing. It wasn’t until this past Fall where I started wearing them. It’s still an adjustment and an exercise in self-acceptance and body positivity. But when I feel confident while wearing it, that’s the best feeling. This is my seventh entry in February Photo Fest 2016! Please click the image below to check out…

Fat Babes in the Media: Magic Mike XXL

July 4, 2015

I kept muttering that they should just get to the dancing and skip the plot. We all knew what we were there for and that was some hot eye candy. From my recollection (I haven’t seen the original Magic Mike since it came out), there was more dancing in the first installment. On the other hand, the plot was a bit more substantial in XXL. I’m no movie critic, I’ll leave…

Reflections on Fatshaming, Fatphobia, and Positive Body Image

December 30, 2014

Don’t read the comments. It’s a line writers, bloggers, and others who do a lot of social media work say to each other. We can write the most up-lifting, inspirational, well-researched piece and almost without fail the Trolls surface. It’s gotten to the point that even tweets or Instagram photos are also being infiltrated by those who feel the urge to add their negative, hateful comments on personal posts. I find it curious and perplexing….

For Vulva Owners: Getting Comfy “Down There”

November 12, 2013

Do you have a vulva? Pussy? Cunt? Twat? Whatever language you use to describe this body part, how comfortable are you with this area? The only thing I will nit pick (This isn’t really nit picking, it’s correcting misuse of terminology.) The vulva is the whole structure and all it encompasses including the inner and outer labia, clitoris, urethral opening, and vaginal opening. The vagina is just the vagina. We need to start…

You Are More Than A Body Part

September 21, 2012

Back in June while I was at school, we were exposed to many panelists and some media that could potentially push our buttons sexually. Some things were easier to take than others. Not much can shock me any more. Believe me when I say that I do have plenty of areas that can still elicit the “squicked out” response. Where many people might not want to challenge themselves on sexual…

Sex and Gender

July 10, 2012

Growing up and living in a hetero-centric society, many people, especially those who identify as heterosexual (straight) and whose gender matches their born sex, never spend any time questioning or pondering their sexual orientation or their gender. It can be challenging to imagine other experiences if we cannot relate to them. As always when perusing my blog, I wish for my readers to step back from their own experiences and…

Masturbation May! More fun, All Year Long!

May 21, 2012

There is a lot that a we can do to make ourselves feel fabulous. Masturbation is one of them. It is a way to release our tensions both sexual and otherwise. But, if you do it in the same way every time, it might actually get boring. We wouldn’t want that. In this post, I want to suggest new ways to explore our bodies, not only for masturbation, but also…
