On Yourself
What does self-discovery mean to you?

 

Self discovery is my check ins with myself in the moments when I’m alone. Over the years, I’ve become more in tune with my silence- recognizing what serves my mind/body and leaving what doesn’t.

 

Can you describe your relationship to your sexuality?

My relationship with sexuality is tender, curious, but fun. Always have fun.

On Sexuality
How do you give yourself pleasure?

 

I love masturbating almost every night. Even if I don’t finish, it lulls me to sleep which feels just as great.

 

How do you ask for what you want?

 

“When I want something I let it be known or better yet, shown.”

On Womankind
What's my favorite part about being a woman?

 

My favorite part about being a woman is the unspoken power we possess. With just a look, a touch, or simple shift in body language- you can have/do whatever you want. There is power, vulnerability, and strength in everything we do.

What advice would you have for women early in their self-discovery?

 

Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Everyone one is unique -there is no wrong or right, no shame or embarrassment. Explore what feels good to you.

 

On Womankind
In terms of pleasure, what do you think women don't talk about enough?

 

In terms of pleasure, I don’t think women talk enough about what we struggle with. I know it's hard to avoid feeling insecure but it's a lot more common that you'd think.
