Why I Find Nudity, Porn, Promiscuity And Vulgarity Empowering

I believe ‘empowerment’ can only be self-determined. What I find empowering, you may not. And vice-versa. There seems to be much debate online on whether nudity, porn and promiscuity is empowering or degrading to women. Again, I believe only the individual can be the judge of that. I’ve collated a list on why I personally find these forms of self expression a positive and powerful experience.

NUDITY

We live in a world where male leaders control women’s bodies and reproductive rights. Uploading nude photographs is a rebellion against the patriarchy and the male-dominated media. I decide how I’m depicted. I shape the narrative that the audience receives.

I’ve enjoyed being photographed and filmed nude since I was 16-years-old. It’s always felt like a celebration to me. I’ve posed nude for a bunch of men’s magazines and acted in films that required nudity. I post nude photos on my website and blog. And at 39, I don’t plan to stop any time soon.

Why should I be ashamed of my body? Why can’t I upload nude photos online without being judged?

PORN

I collect thousands of erotic images and vintage porn clips. I not only find them absolutely stunning to look at. They’re also a wonderful accessory to my masturbatory sessions and sex-life. I’ve learnt so much about sexual creativity whilst consuming porn. I get ideas about positions. I get ideas for my writing. I watch porn every single day. It’s a positive and life-affirming part of my existence.

VULGARITY

I’m drawn to vulgarity in art and in life. I’m drawn to it’s rawness and it’s truth. A vulgar woman is often labeled: rough, cheap and nasty. I’ve been labeled all three. It’s a form of oppression. It’s a way to push women down and dismiss their dirtiness. I have no interest in being a fucking flower. I embrace my filth and vulgarness as a female. Women need to stop pretending that they don’t have filth inside of them. Filth is beautiful. Embrace it.

PROMISCUITY

I hate the word ‘promiscuity’. The term should be gender-neutral but unfortunately, it’s not. I personally, have never heard the term used in reference to a man. I’ve only heard it used in a derogative manner to describe a woman that has the audacity to love and enjoy lots of sex.

Which brings me to my next point. Am I promiscuous? Yes I am. I like to fuck, I like variety. End of story. According to society women descend in value when they’ve been around the block. Well I don’t. I ascend in value. I decide.

I will conclude with a quote by John Berger, from his book Ways of Seeing. He writes:

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting ‘Vanity’, thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for your own pleasure.”

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
