      Thank you Jea! Sometimes I find it harder to blog now because I’m constantly trying to find new angles and topics to explore. x

    This is such an open post! I love how raw and vulnerable it is because honestly, nobody talks about it even though it’s clearly something that happens on dating apps for example. I agree – as long as there is consent then I think it’s fine. There is something empowering about such photos because you really focus on your body which could both be a good and bad thing…opening up your mind to your own body.

    I remember the first time I properly looked at my own body in the mirror. Prior to that, I never thought about the shape of my body, the curve of my back but looking at it more omits a type of confidence.

    The guy who sent you the dick pic sounds like a douche. I always get weird DMs on Instagram too but nothing to that extent.

      The guy who sent the dick pic was really strange because for about a year, I complimented his food photos and he commented ‘normal’ things on my pics. The DM message felt really out of the blue.
      I think a lot of people have sent nude or semi nude photos before, they just don’t like discussing it. Maybe because they worry about being judged. There’s also now a greater fear of revenge porn as a lot more cases are being reported in the news, and the law doesn’t seem to be strict enough.

      One thing I didn’t say in the post that your comment has made me think about – the photos can be really empowering, but if you send nude image when you feel insecure, and you expect a certain reaction, that can make things worse. Like if you want a guy to talk about how amazing you look, and they just respond with some emojis or a few words. But generally partners tend to be quite complimentary. Thank you for reading 🙂

          I feel I’m always out of the loop. It’s really hard trying to balance blogging and social media with everything else.
