I Had Put Myself in a Box

To feel confident and sexy. To feel desired and desirous. This is the gift Betty Dodson has given me. And I am not only forever grateful.

I am impassioned about sharing this beauty and this work with all the other women who think they see blue, but still see gray. All the other women who think they’re whole, but who are too busy to reclaim their own sensuality. The women who are too anxious to embrace pleasure for themselves, because they’re too busy providing it to their husbands, partners, children and friends. The women who feel too fat, too fluffy, too anything and everything to feel deserving of self-love and the freedom that makes me walk through life differently than I did before.
Removing the veil didn’t happen in a single day.

The young girl in this picture was pulled out of class because she violated the school dress code in Kentucky by showing her collarbones. Upworthy has more pictures of girls pulled out of class and humiliated while missing valuable class time waiting for their parents to come down to school.  From Portland to Kentucky, it's an every day occurrence.  

Loving Portland's Sex Toy Fairy

Although she won't identify herself, a 20-something college grad and retail worker has admitted that she is the "Sex Toy Fairy" responsible for throwing dildos on powelines in Portland.

What's fascinating is that they pixelated the hanging dildos in all the news coverage. I really had to dig to find this image. In the age of porn-on-demand, we can't see the image of a silicone phallus...really???

And the Sex Toy Fairy isn't stopping any time soon according to her recent interview with Vice Magazine:

"We're nowhere near done," she said. "It had to be done. I have no idea why, but it had to. [Expletive]-tossing is an exercise in happiness. It was just a fun, hilarious thing to do."
