"hashtag me too" (part 1)
And I have been there too
The eyes that gaze too long at my body
The comments from rushed lips that resound with unpleasant tones in my ears
Hands touching my body without permission
Squeezing at skin
Searching for something outside of themselves
Something of me to taste, to feel, to take
Unwanted words spoken from unknown tongues
Unwanted touch, can i even call it that?, from unknown hands
The groping, grasping, grabbing
When will it end?? And I have been there too
Looking too long at legs or chest or eyes
Coveting that which is not mine
Letting my mind take them in, feel them without permission
I try to abstain, restrain, look away
But mind lingers longer, putting heart in submission
I don't want to admit that I've been that one
But perhaps that's part of my unconscious condition
And I have been there too
The victim and the martyr
The hero, the healer, the mender
I see the dark parts of my heart, and love them like the light
I see the lightness of my skin and recognise kin amongst faces of strangers,
I hold my head high not hiding sexuality
For my sex is apart of my divinity
The masculine, feminine, non-binary,
Come together like holy trinity,
I don't disown myself, but recreate the constructs that I've been born into,
Don't reject myself, but reclaim the parts that others have torn into,
And I have been there too
Seen images on screens of bodies in love making
Am I disillusioned or are they just faking?
For the money is good, but distorted perception, sex slavery and deception,
Packaged as morsels of nectar to consume
Leaves ideas of intimate connection in ruin
Is this even consented? .

• S p e c t a c l e 🎭 | Je suis allée voir @isabellevitari en spectacle à @lanouvelleseine ce weekend. C'est déjà la deuxième fois... (eh oui, quand on aime, on ne compte pas, paraît - il😜). Parce qu'effectivement, je suis complètement admirative de cette artiste : de son énergie, de son parcours, mais aussi de son jeu d'actrice incroyable. En plus, comme vous pouvez le voir, elle nous a gentiment raccompagnés à la sortie, pour ceux qui voulaient faire une photo et discuter un peu. Juste adorable. Alors avis aux parisiennes : ne ratez pas l'occasion de passer un samedi soir à vous plier de rire et allez découvrir son dernier spectacle 😉

Some alone time before it’s lined up with all the other beauties shipping out today.
I wanted to extend a giant THANK YOU to every loving and *patient* customer who has recently ordered. I’m not only doing my #onewomanshow thing here, I’ve been hustling through a full-time, immersive course in Digital Marketing for the past several weeks. Every order supports this, helping me pay for essentials like BART fare, gas, and snacks. I love snacks.
I’m eternally grateful for all of YOU.
Ok...we might be a little late to the party, but we finally got to see the BRILLIANT Jimmy Fowlie in his one-woman show “So Long Boulder City” where he performs the unseen one-woman show from LaLa Land AS Emma Stone’s character Mia Dolan. I’ve been seeing theatre for almost 40 years, and I can honestly say I have never laughed this hard (or this disruptively) in a show before. CongratsJimmy on not only creating the show we didn’t know we all wanted to see, but for being so committed, hilarious, and inspiring in it!!! Congrats to everyone involved!!!
"I want a ferocious bear of a man who spins me and plants a big, juicy one on me in public. I want a butt-fucking every now and then. Not a literal butt fuck, just a loving pain in my ass from time to time, you know? I want to laugh about farts together. I want to smile against warm, wet lips pressing hard against mine. The truth is I've never been happier than when I'm with a man. That's the thing with love, it'll break you. But I can't... I won't give up. I'm in love with love, and I'll have my heart broken as long as I can get a taste... a teenie little taste of what it's like. Maybe one day I'll really find it." ["Irish and Ready to Fuck," excerpt from UNTOLD, inspired by a true story]
I want to say a massive thank you to everyone that ordered in my release last night. I am so humbled and grateful that you all love what I do, and I have had to shut down my website for the next two weeks, before i open again for the next release to allow myself time to get everyone's goodies complete.
I don't like that I have to say this, but I have be inundated with messages from ladies wanting more pieces and most of them are incredibly nice and I have done the best I can to accomodate as many as I can. But I have had a few people get a little annoyed with me for not being able to take on more and I have to just clarify with you all. I am a mumma of 3 and a partner and I am doing all of these pieces with my own two hands. I am moving as fast as I possibly can and will be sleeping even less these next two weeks to get it all done. Please be patient and understand I am doing as much as I possibly can, and the abusive messages will not be tolerated. I will do the best I can to accomodate everyone in the next release, but I am one person. Please remember that. So much love to you all. Amanda - IzzyNoe xx
