Natasha posed for this picture during her recent Bodysex retreat.  She does these wonderful photo shoots in nature during her weekends. 

While posing, she realized that she was bleeding.  The women encouraged her saying that it was beautiful.  I have to agree.

I saw the original post on Natasha's FB page with her picture. FB removed it and replaced it with Julia Emerald's picture..How and why that replacement picture is a mystery to me except they have the bodysex women in a file? It's preposterous because violence on FB is always seen. Videos of people hurting each other and beheadings. Facebook, you are sexaully repressed to the MAX. Makes me more of an activist...Again. I am leading the local charge with my hitachi in hand! 
Anyway, besides that BULLSHIT I love this picture. Thank you for posting, Carlin!
I miss my menstrual bleeding and I always will.

This post made me think of something I hadn't thought of for years. Back in junior high home economics class, it was the teacher's duty to talk to the class about menstruation. I recall her saying that it was important to keep clean and wear a clean pad, because we all know how some girls smell when they're on their periods. I never noticed a girl smelling bad, but now I realize that all of us probably thought, huh, I hope I'm not the girl with stinky periods. It was a type of "body shaming" that I guess has stuck with me all these years. That menstrual blood and the smell of it is something to be ashamed of. Why can't we accept our bodies the way nature made them? I wonder how many young girls got this lecture over the years, and secretly were ashamed that maybe they were the smelly ones.
I'm glad Natasha was brave enough to post her beautiful picture with her blood tinged panties. Take that, home ec teacher!
