This is my naked body.
I don’t feel the need to sexualise it in order to feel comfortable with it.
Why do you?
Every day I receive questions in my inbox asking me to do sexual things, like take close up photos of me touching genitalia, or videos of me using sex toys. People even ask me to write erotica for them.
Look at the photo above. This isn’t sex. This isn’t sexual. This is a naked body. We’re born this way. We bathe ourselves this way.
Why are so many of us so uncomfortable with seeing somebody naked in a non-sexual context that we feel the need to apply one to it?
It’s just a naked body.
Feel free to reblog and/or spread the message however you can. Let’s reclaim nudity.
I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.
This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.
And I will not be afraid
of your scars.
I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.
While I can’t name a number on what age a person matures, the law does. If you’re younger than 18 years old, you should unfollow this blog now. I have no way of controlling who does and doesn’t follow me, nor is there a way to block people from viewing it. I’ve been pretty lenient in the past…
Because I just got an ask AND A FAN MAIL from some 13 year old kid, asking if I like selfies… a male kid too. WTF? GTFO! Seriously!!!
Because I am still getting messages from minors. Look it isn’t personal, at all.
