I know it can be scary sharing personal, sexual things. However, you are my hero because you do not make yourself small for other people. My friends and I like to talk about sex but we usually do it out of earshot of others.

Before I was married, my friend and I angered one of my ex boyfriends' fragile ego. We were talking about dick and how much my friend really likes girth. I giggled and say "But of course. They feel better" and he was so angry but we just laughed at him.

Now we still talk about sex but don't like to bring it up in front of guys cause even if they don't say anything, I don't know if they will ever truly understand our perspective. Sexual openness threatens some people.

When I wrote my article about twerking, I felt inspired by your ability to speak about the right of women to own their bodies and control what happens and actually get enjoyment out of sex and sexuality. Thanks so much for writing this. I really enjoyed reading it❣️
