EmpowerHer speaker Feminista Jones pushes the button on purpose, celebrating your body and sexual freedom
On Saturday, May 21st, we’re hosting our inaugural conference about how creativity and technology are changing our daily lives, from our hobbies to our work. Will you be joining us? Tickets here. (Use code blavityfam for a discounted price!) By now, you've probably read about and/or heard about the phenomenon that is Feminista Jones. A sex positive feminist, Feminista Jones dishes up her daily dose of truth via Twitter and her website. She also teaches us how to love our bodies and enjoy sexual freedom in her spicy novel Push The Button. When she agreed to speak at our EmpowerHer conference, we knew she would bring that raw, gut-wrenching truth with a side of sexual revelation that we are all in need of. I had the pleasure of chatting with her about finding your truth, being "dickmatized," why hoes don't exist and loving your body. Here's what she had to say:
On accepting and living in your truthFJ: "You have to stop caring what other people say. It's not that you don't value the positive contributions or the positive opinions or that you shouldn't be open to constructive criticism. Those things are a part of life and you should embrace those things. But most of us allow commentary from people who really don't matter or affect any significant part of our life, and it affects us to the point of self-doubt. If it's coming from family or friends, I recommend therapy (if you can afford it), counseling or spiritual guidance

On being 'dickmatized'
Why 'hoes' don't exist
Feminista tells us how to celebrate our bodies and embrace sexual freedom:Become comfortable being uncomfortable.
- No one is going to live your life but you. Don't choose the path of unhappiness.
- It's ok to explore your body sexually and go beyond traditional narratives.
- Don't be afraid to ask for help and cultivate a circle of women who will be there for you.
