Sex in which I am voluntarily vulnerable, naked, exposed and intermingled with another being is electrifying. Being able to slide on my panties afterwards, and put on my clothes with all my integrity intact is the most powerful feeling there is. There is no room for shame, and if a man were to attempt to make me feel otherwise… then it would be a matter of his self-worth, not mine. It’s one thing to believe this, and another thing to process it this way…and I didn’t think I was capable of it until I started having sex. I discovered a very important character trait about myself via sexual activity.
