“I will always be the virgin-prostitute, the perverse angel, the two-faced sinister and saintly woman.”
As you may have guessed from the few Anais Nin quotes on my site. I am a big fan of her inspiring writing and reflections. This one (the title) is one that especially resonates with me.
It took me a lot of time, self reflection, self acceptance and radical self love to be able to move through all the taboos, judgments, presumptions of our culture. Too finally truly embody the shameless slut and also a divine wholesome women. (No, we don't actually have to choose its just such deep conditioning its hard to get out of it!).
It took me a long time believe me.
But I'm glad I feel I have found a comfortable place in that space now and I hope my being at ease with my own sexuality will inspire others to shamelessly explore their sensuality, desire too, to connect with their bodies and just play and have fun with it all. Like I've said before Life is far too important to be taken seriously haha.
I like to look up to inspirational creatives. Women of ambition and intellegence, Muses, Outsiders, Lovers, Artists. Marilyn Monroe,(the truest story of rags to riches you might ever find!) Dita Von Tease, Anais Nin, Coco Chanel I could go on.
After all your life is our masterpiece is it not, We have to take responsibility to live as fully as we can at least some times! :)
This Anais Nin quote I came across just today and I thought it was so sexy and true for me that I would like to share it with you.
“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”
