I’m not someone who likes to talk about themselves so I guess this isn’t the easiest thing for me to do, but I’m glad I’m becoming more comfortable with myself and my body to be able to do this. I’m even more glad that I get to share it with you guys. I’ve always been more ashamed of my body than proud. I was always told to cover up and told I didn’t look “appropriate” from a young age. I felt like other girls could wear cute little tube tops, but if I did it, I created too much attention and that just wasn’t good. I’ve learned now that the attention is in fact a good thing. It’s really all about confidence. Having that helps others perceive you in a more positive light. I’m learning to smile more.. that’s hard for me as well. I never really masturbated (or enjoyed sex to be quite honest) until about three years ago. I’m glad I finally started exploring my own body because I came to love and understand myself so much more. I’ve learned what I like and what I don’t like, what triggers me, and what turns me off. I’m much more willing to experiment now, while still staying within my own boundaries.
