Self-love involves protecting yourself, and Salo learnt that early on. She chats to us about how her ethnicity made others feel entitled to her body, and how she now fully trusts her body’s intuition — if she’s around someone respectful and safe, her gut instinct kicks in.
Negative connotations come with the word “fat” and Noomi is on a mission to remove them. We sat down with her to talk about body image, confidence and intimacy. The first rule of Noomi’s self-love manifesto: looking at yourself naked — it always helps.
Young girls enter this world minding their own business and are instantly told their body parts are “wrong” — too sexual (even when underage) or too imperfect. It takes a minute for them to enter womanhood and call bullshit. This is a lot like Betty’s naked story. She had a few things to say to us about nudity and self-love.
Self-love has been a learning process for Faith — something many women know about all too well. We sat down for a one-to-one with the Copenhagen-based model on all things body image, sexuality and self-discovery.
“It’s weird and unshapely.” Marta’s relationship with her body is a very common story — comparing it to other women’s bodies and feeling let down when it’s not an identical match. Over the years it’s become very clear who’s to blame: the media. So, along with many other women, Marta is giving beauty norms the middle finger and loving every shape, twist and mark on her body. We caught up with her to chat about body image, orgasms and sexuality.
