‘Vixen’ is An anthem to feel comfortable in your own skin, regardless of your sexuality, your desires, your weight or your body shape made by Louisville talent ‘Estella Dawn’ setted up to debut in Formula Indie the December 26th
I think there’s a lot of pressure on people to present themselves in a proper, gentle and socially acceptable way and because of this people often feel the need to hide their sexual diversity and desires. Sometimes only feeling safe to truly express themselves in closeted or underground environments, even when there’s a risk of being “discovered” and shamed.
For me, being assertive when you’re a woman is often misconstrued as being bossy or bitchy and talking about sex or showing off your body opens the door to having your morals criticized.
I wrote Vixen as a way to shed my own fears around my body and my sexuality. People sexualize me all the time, it’s my body so why can’t I do the same?
I’ve come to a place where I no longer want to refine myself into less than I am just to make other people feel more comfortable. As long as you aren’t hurting anyone there’s no reason to be ashamed of who you want to be.
I think it’s important to feel empowered and confident in your skin, manifest good things for yourself, communicate what you need and want, to always maintain personal boundaries, have safe sex, it’s your body and your happiness.
Life is too short not to take what you want from it.
