empowerment through our sexuality

yes our sexuality is POWERFUL!!!! …powerful in our connection with others- as a performer on stage as well as in our daily (and nightly) interactions with others…  i think it’s amazing when women and men are authentic in their sexuality and how they express it…but there’s a thin line between what’s for show (don’t try so hard/don’t give it all away!) and what is genuine/natural/effortless (you just being you).  and it’s sad to me when a woman feels that it is her ONLY option in gaining love, admiration, affection, and empowerment is through her sex. in fact sometimes our sexuality can distract from our other talents and true intellect. i’m making it one of my missions (one of many) to help women (especially young girls) to appreciate/honor/cherish/embrace their femininity and sexuality but not use it as a primary source of empowerment… 

“i’ve been empowered by my sexuality and found it fleeting and false… i want to be known for my word…my intellect…my thoughts…and ideas—dancing in my mind, like fireflies, pure electricity… because that is eternal…” – from my journal on June 9, 2006…

One thought on “empowerment through our sexuality

  1. Devon says:

    A worthy cause. I find that women use their sexuality not only out of lack of confidence, but also as a means to illusory ends. They’re often seeking the very things (comfort, attention, love) that cannot be born of such superficial means (lust, physicality, promiscuity). The more someone can find the courage to speak through more meaningful modes, the more satiating the state of returns. It’s as simple as this: sexuality begets sex, love begets love.
