Every time I hear someone say “true love waits,” I cringe. They talk like it’s so degrading to have sex. We had this guest speaker and she told us to imagine if on our wedding night the handprints of every man who’d ever touched us appeared on our bodies – how ashamed we’d be for our husband to see these dirty handprints all over us.

yeah um no. also this is one of those rare things that makes me want to make art. and actually get all the guys I’ve slept with to dip their hands in paint and put them on me. in lots of different colors. and then take pictures. because you know what? I think that’s BEAUTIFUL. most of them have left their mark on me, and it’s not a bad thing. I like my lovers to leave marks.
