This article helped confirmed what I already know now. Sinful ‘pleasure’ and the choice to feel good is a woman’s autonomous right and, unlike evangelical faith in a diety which seeks to control our minds and actions, is a joy and actually builds a healthy amount of confidence. I grew up protestant christian and realizing this was hard. Reading this article was like feeling someone grab my face, look me in the eyes, and speak until I understood that feeling pleasure is not a shameful thing.
