How to see yourself as sexy

For as long as I can remember I’ve had what a friend once referred to as “White Woman’s Syndrome”. It’s that inability to step outside our heads and see ourselves in the senuous and sexy way  others do. Because of that we are not comfortable in our bodies, so we don’t swing our hips or […]
