Pressed for Pleasure


Previous Post Next Post

We live in a world that slaps the terms “self-love” and “self-care” on every possible product- as if it's the new “gluten-free”. This craze turns care into an obligation. This can be beneficial but doesn't address an issue we experience - how can you truly experience pleasure if you feel like you don't deserve it? This is something we go through as black women and want to focus on it. We want to consider being flawed head-on so that you can give yourself pleasure- something that is a step beyond self-care.

As black women, you're constantly working to support the people around you. Despite being the most marginalized group, we are the group that protects all other groups. With this albatross on our shoulders, it can be difficult to feel like we truly deserve pleasure. We're trained to believe that we should always be doing something, if not the guilt follows. We say FUCK THAT, so we've listed our favorite ways that we unapologetically give ourselves pleasure.

 

A LIST OF WAYS WE UNAPOLOGETICALLY PLEASURE OURSELVES:

MASTURBATION- DUH, ANY AND EVERY TIME OF DAY

STAYING IN BED LONGER THAN I NEED TO

ICE CREAM, PARTICULARLY MADE BY WECKERLY'S

SMOKING A LOT OF WEED

MAKING TRAVEL A PRIORITY

LEAVING WORK EVEN JUST 5 MINUTES EARLY

DID WE SAY MASTURBATION ALREADY?

TAKING A LONG DRIVE THAT OFTEN ENDS AT KRISPY KREME

MID-DAY NAPS


We hope that you can take these examples and pleasure yourself because trust us, you deserve it!
