It Begins From Within…

As black women our sexual power and sensuality is narrated as it does not belong to us, that others are responsible for our pleasure and that it is taboo for us to embrace it. The inspiration of this piece comes from the belief that one’s pleasure begins from within, and does not originate or is reliant on external forces. Being accepting, confident, and comfortable in one’s sexual power. Illustrating the transition of shame and fear to acceptance and confidence.
