When I speak of the erotic, then I speak of it as an assertion of the life force of women; of that creative energy empowered, the knowledge and use of which we are now reclaiming in our language, our history, our dancing, our loving, our work, our lives.” – Audre Lorde

Virginia reflects on C.C. Carter:
I am fiercely curvy and brave.
I come from a long line of beautiful hottentot built women.
I believe that the body is a temple to be worshipped no matter the size, the shape, the color.
What do you love most about your body and why? My ass-et. I love how her hands slip in along the waist and push out as they trace down my hips and thighs or along the front of my panza.
One piece of panza positive advice you wish someone would have given you when you were growing up…That the best feeling in the world is when your partner or your child lies on your panza and starts to rub it because of it's comfort and its familiarity of home (womb).
What do you call your panza?
