Controlling how you decide to show up in the patriarchal world as a menopausal woman, is really up to you.
You do know that YOU get to decide don't you? In some countries, that choice is taken away, so if you DO have the choice, honour it and use it wisely.
😬 Want to stick to bedroom activism instead? I'm right there with you.
😬 Want to wear oversized prints, enormous earrings and red lipstick? Do it.
😬 Want to have casual sex with someone younger? Try it.
😬 What to just sleep all day this Sunday? Do it.
This life changing conversation with Kath Berry put some fire back in my belly and I did not expect this conversation to end up where it did! 😵

🧐 Controlling how you decide to show up inside the patriarchal marinade.

🧐 Why penetrative m.a.s.t.u.r.b.a.t.i.o.n is MORE important than clitoral m.a.s.t.u.r.b.a.t.i.o.n as we age.
