Just because I did it that one time, doesn’t mean I want to do it again. I just because I didn’t want to do it that one time, doesn’t mean I don’t want to do it now. .
Sometimes when sex is difficult for us, our partners or lovers start treating us like statues frozen in the past – broken, unable, unwilling. Sometimes, we start treating ourselves that way, too, thinking there’s nothing we can do, there’s no way to unthaw and start anew. .
Other times, we were able to make a dramatic breakthrough or leap-frog over several stages of healing, surprising ourselves at our own capacity, then expecting ourselves to stay there.
.
The point here is we’re not statues, we’re living, breathing, changing, contradictory, complex humans. Every moment we get to check in: What am I wanting now? Who can I let myself be today? What feels doable? What feels desirable? What does my heart want, my mind, my gut, my pussy? What makes my whole body exhale? What would get me super wet?
.
It’s okay if it’s not the same as yesterday, and it’s okay if it’s different tomorrow. Breathe into that. Allow that. That’s freedom. That’s the reclamation.

I'm tired of all the people saying "aren't you afraid of going out alone at night?" no and neither you should be. #takebackthenight

We’re just over half-way through the 30 Day Reclamation. How is it feeling for you to be taking in these mantras, concepts and prompts? There’s a rapid-fire speed to technology that makes it so easy to OD on information. Add in the pressure of perfectionism, and it’s easy to find yourself in a trauma resolution booby trap. “Must heal everything now!” “Can’t heal anything fast enough!”
.
This stuff isn’t a race. There are days when I turn off my phone and remember the natural slow of flesh and breath. Those are my favorite days. Opting out is a win. A remembering of choice. That you don’t have to force yourself to sit through, take in more stories, learn more lessons. There are no prizes given to the one who endures the most. .
Healing isn’t an edurence game. So much more often, it’s about surrendering. To the truth of your capacity. To the little kid inside of you who’s tugging at your heart, quietly whispering, “can we rest now?”
.
When were raised to ignore that little human's tug, we can begin to go numb to her voice. But now we’re adults, and little by little, we can make new choices. Tell our lover we’re too tired to have sex. Cancel the date. Book the massage. Turn off our phones. We can be gentle with ourselves. Over and over again. We can.

Disheartened by all the sexual assault allegations being surfaced in the media lately ? Come Join us on April 26, 2018 for our 4th Annual Take Back the Night, here in Hoboken, NJ ! Help make a difference and Speak Up 👍🏽 Event (link in bio) #itendsnow✋ #takebackthenight #10pointsoflight #speakup #standup #hoboken #notodomesticviolence🚫
What did you hear in those terrible moments? What words or phrases were used against you, made bad, scary or off-limits? What now lives in your psyche as dirty, wrong or dangerous?
.
Let’s pause and take a breath with these questions. Nothing about this inquiry is small or easy. Words can stick like magnets to our flesh, our breasts, our trembling lips. How do we unwrite what others had no right to ink on us? How do we re-write our own dialogue of pleasure?
.
When the comments leaked from Mr. Orange, and the nation put a megaphone to the word pussy, I finally began saying it. It’s not that it was a word that someone once called me, but I knew it to be lockroom slang for, “you’re in trouble… you’re not safe here.”
.
I pulled that word back into my own mouth, started letting it out with jovial rebellion. I grabbed my own pussy, took pictures with my friends. We made art out of cats and fangs. We knitted pink hats and marched and hissed and howled. And while that might’ve been a white-washed movement, it was a movement of women empowering women, nonetheless. Women standing with each other, saying, I believe you. Women who had probably never said the word pussy out loud before.
.
What if we can reclaim sacred whore? Slut? Cunt? – I can barely write the words myself. I just deleted them three times, thinking they’re too much. Maybe that’s why I leave them here. As sign-posts of the words that still have power over me. That still speak danger to me. Yes, words will always be dangerous, but if others are wielding them as swords, I want to be able to hold them in my hands, transform them into creative rebellion and pleasure. Reappropriate them into useful power. Like pussy, I wanna grab them and make them my own.

JOURNAL ON THIS:: What words or phrases have power over you? As you pull them close, what’s your body want to do? Can you give yourself permission to dance or cry or shout or shatter? You have the right to clear the connotation of other people’s abusive language.
