I used to think that selfie-taking was superficial and immature. Most articles I’ve read on the subject have touted as much.
And then I met Allyee.
In my last post, I talked about how I’m finding and practicing radical self-love through posting nude photos on the internet. And recently, I had an amazing conversation with the bad ass babe that inspired me to begin this journey.
In this episode of the Sexually Liberated Woman podcast, I talk to Allyee about. . .
/ How and why she started taking nude selfies and posting them on the internet (spoiler: “Fake it ’til you make it”).
/ The ways her selfie-taking is a political, feminist act and radically self-loving.
/ The way nude selfies have drastically changed her life—for better (“It’s changed me as a person for the better!”) and for worse (“I lost my job, dating has been impossible…”).
/ Allyee’s tips on how you can start taking nude selfies of your own to discover yourself as a sexual being.
“Taking my power back into my own hands and writing my own sexual narrative has been one of the most powerful, empowering things I’ve ever done for myself.”
We talked about so many things and honestly this brief peek at our conversation doesn’t do it justice. I love that I was able to get fiery with Allyee about intersectional feminism, sexual liberation, and shameless sexual space-taking. I also really loved what she had to say about men taking naked selfies.
Some things mentioned in this episode:
- Tramps Against Trump
- How I first met Allyee
- The song that Allyee used to masturbate to
- The photo on Instagram we talked about
