The young women on a mission to reclaim the word 'pussy' - BBC Three
Indeed, he was only twice her age. He bent over, resting his palms on his knees to bring himself to her eye level. They soon had a ritual of sorts between them. Just before early nightfall at 6pm her housemaid would come knocking on the door, signaling the daily end of their easy companionship and the beginning of rituals of bath and bed. Then one day she wore that skirt. It was not as though he had not seen the skirt before. She wore it every other day, but today, this day, it was different.
Kate's breasts, Pussy Riot, virginity tests and our attitude on women's bodies
Free Pussy Riot [Jasmina Tesanovic] I used to say, "This will not be my war anyway" to my daughter, to my young colleagues, and friends feminists or not: We fought in the seventies eighties nineties for freedom of choice, for divorce, for contraception, for women's human rights, against domestic violence, for peace in the world. We fought incessantly, ruthlessly, risking our careers, our private lives, our security and normality.
This a a young lady who got in above her head. She clearly has great distaste for a career as an adult entertainment participant and no doubt regrets her initial interest and participation. The commenters above are absolutely correct on both counts. She is a stunningly beautiful young lady and she certainly sparks a sense, a notion, a wish, to get to know her personally and, no, I don't mean that in a lustful way. She stirs something within that awakens one's thoughts about lifelong commitment. Her intelligence and education are impressive and her very feminine hesitancy is endearing, i.e. she's not brassy or cynical. She's sincere and, I suspect, she is or was desperate for whatever money she earned for this initial and probably final stint in the adult entertainment business. If it were possible, I would like to share coffee with her at a Starbucks, bicycle through a park on a sunny day, people watch in a high-traffic mall, or share life stories. I honestly believe that, despite her timidity, she has great courage to do what needs to be done when circumstances require it. I think we would enjoy one another's company from the get-go and she's welcome to contact me via eMail if she'd like. We wouldn't have to meet if that would be awkward for her. I certainly wouldn't object if XVideos.com shared my eMail address with her. Otherwise, I wish her the best.
