Taking a splash as a nudist | UniversityPost http://universitypost.dk/article/taking-splash-nudist#.UT8fLYtFubg.twitter
”The place is full of people of all shapes and sizes. Next to me stands a small, perfectly round, couple. A wrinkly bum walks by. Large and small breasts, large and small penises, thighs and stomachs. I try to keep my wandering eyes at eye level, but I don’t really succeed. I have never seen so many naked people, and in a moment, I will join the ranks of the naked.”
Dive right in.
This weekend I’m heading to a local nudist resort for a lovely day poolside and I am looking forward to being free under the sun from society’s constricting clothes once more.
A little off-topic for this blog, but I have a point to make.
It’s your body. You can dress how you like, pierce it as you like, tattoo it, modify it in any way you see fit. Nobody has the right to give you crap about what you do to it. Shave your head if that’s what you want. Don’t shave your armpits, or your legs, if that will make you happy.
You chose who gets to explore your body with you. Have sex if you want it, with who you want it with (if they want it too, of course.) Ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.
And of course, if you don’t want sex, that’s cool too. Your body is yours. Do with it what you will.
Sex is sex. It’s natural. The choice is entirely yours.
You are not a slut/whore because you choose to engage in sex/sexual activity. You are not a prude or a frigid bitch or unmanly if you don’t. It’s your body therefore it’s your decision. If it’s consensual and nothing illegal is taking place, it is not your business to judge others.
You can be body-positive and still have preferences.
You can be a feminist and still love men.
You can be sex-positive without being interested in casual sex.
People seem to forget that the core principle of all of these is as simple as not being an asshole.
Listen up, ladies:
If you want to have a lot of sex, do it.
If you want a lot of partners, go for it.
If you want to be polyamorous, do it.
If you want to have sex with men, yes.
If you want to have sex with women, yes.
If you want to have sex with anyone in between, yes.
If you don’t want to have sex, don’t have sex.
If you want sex in the butt, do it.
If you want to have oral sex, do it.
If you want to be with one person, go for it.
If you want to slut-shame others, DON’T.
I just looked up her latest video and I’m sad to say that I’m horribly disappointed. I’d been watching more of Jenna’s work lately and was enjoying her quirky nature. Now I will be avoiding watching her videos because I won’t financially support someone with such a judgmental attitude when she’s grossly uninformed about STDs.
What I commented on the video:
Herpes is NOT caused by casual sex. It does not decide to transmit to certain ppl. You can catch herpes from a monogamous partner who was either untested, or received a (very common) false negative test result. You can even catch herpes without engaging in sex! Educate yourself Jenna.
there is nothing wrong with talking about sex
there is nothing wrong with wanting sex
there is nothing wrong with feeling almost desperate for sex
there is nothing wrong with talking about your sex life in an appropriate setting
there is nothing wrong with being sexually open
or liking sex
or loving sex
or having a lot of sexual partners
there’s nothing wrong with being sex positive if you do it for you
now go, be free, fuck~
I WANT TO REBLOG THIS A MILLION TIMES
I need to remember this. I always feel bad about expressing negative emotions when they’re completely natural and should be acceptable.
