Pussy Power | NSFW

So much power lies within the pussy.

Crude isn’t it?

Pussy – the word makes you feel filthy.

You feel a bit rebellious when you say it out loud.

Cheeks flush as each letter rolls off the tongue.

P U S S Y

This movement – this change in everything lately with pride in the pussy has lit a fire under my ass and I am ready to dive right into all things related to embracing this lesser loved part of my body. I’ve always been sort of ashamed of my own with no idea what normal is or how it is supposed to look. To start, I am a serial comparer and it didn’t stop with my vulva. Next, I am insanely hard on my physical self- brutal even. Lastly, I have tucked in, folded, and cursed my labia since I was in my early twenties. Now, I just feel really terrible for all of the wishing away I did in the past.

Are my lips too long?

Why don’t they tuck neatly inside like some women?

Why does my hair grow so fast and why during sex, do I need to be stimulated outside as well as in?

This and my shadowed past of sexual assault always made that first time being naked – terrifying. I wondered what was normal to the person sitting in front of me. What was pretty? That gut wrenching worry still hangs out in the pit of my stomach. But I find myself sitting in front of my bedroom mirror naked – more. While I do my makeup, I find my eyes wandering to parts of my body I am most critical of and I embrace them.

I remember a couple of months ago, sitting on my bedroom floor on a yellow towel – I was naked with my knees up and crossed when Scott (my husband) walked into the bedroom. I looked down and quickly hid myself from him. Noticing my discomfort and how ridiculous this was, I relaxed and for the first time let myself be truly vulnerable. Completely visible.

I stared at this part of my body I avoided up until now and I kind of dug it. I even felt sexy and did the whole smiling thing with my eyes when I looked up at him to see him checking out the goods. It was intense knowing that in that moment I was attractive to him and to myself.

It was so fucking uncomfortable confronting this. But it was a step and it made me feel good. It seems like I thrive off of making my skin crawl and for that i’m learning to be thankful.

I swear I didn’t look at my vulva for like six months after each baby out of complete fear. Rude, considering this part of my body delivered my four babies happy and healthy. My last three- she held fast and didn’t tear. Yet I repay this piece of myself with shame and the cold shoulder. She just needed some love.

Learning to allow myself the ability to feel uncomfortable and battle my way through it is what has been pushing me to jump into things that I normally wouldn’t.

It all started with embracing my pussy.

I look at myself and I am ok with it.

Mine is mine and it is unique. Like fingerprints and features… each is different.

I know I can’t be the only one that feels this way, right? Does anyone else get that vibe from the lady below? Like you’re kind of not sure if what you’ve got going on is socially accepted? How ridiculous is it that in every aspect of our lives we are brainwashed into thinking that only certain features or sizes fall into the pretty category. Who decided only certain vulvas were beautiful and why do we allow it to continue?

Porn shows us freshly waxed, well lit, fully lubed puss.

Movies show us sexualized fantasy puss – often mixed with rape culture and objectification.

The internet is cruel and judgmental.

I remember looking at my first nude mag and saying well… Maybe i’m just deformed or maybe mine is broken (I was 10 or 11 when I found my step dad’s stash). I now know that my pussy isn’t broken, it works just as it should and at 29 I can finally say she’s grown on me.

This curiosity that lingers inside ALL THE TIME just makes me have to ask..

How often does the average woman take a peek at her puss? How many of us are thinking the same thing- every time you take your clothes off or rub your body against his or hers?

Consequently, we should grow up knowing that our bodies are perfect and beautiful from the start. We should talk to our children about body image and the unique features that each of us carry. There is no such thing as a perfect pussy.

We as women should own our bodies and explore them. Most of all we should accept and love one of our least recognized parts. Be proud of those labia. Give that clitoris some attention.

Shave it if you want, wax it if you’re brave, let it be natural if that suits you.

You have the power ladies.

In conclusion, my PSA is simply this.

Love your pussy.

Touch your pussy.

Embrace your pussy.

Because why not?
