[Body Confidence Summit] Pamela Madsen: Stop Worrying About How it Looks, So You Can Enjoy How it Feels
You can shop the latest styles and take a while to do your hair so it is just the way you like it. You can primp and preen and powder puff your pretty little bits and pieces. You can wear a great dress, a hot pair of heels and go out for meals in classy restaurants. You can take an hour to decorate your face and conduct yourself as a pillar of social grace and STILL not love the skin you’re in.
No amount of social veneer will bring you nearer to the sense of peace and pleasure you long to experience in your body. And if your livingness has been tied up in knots worrying about how you look, then maybe it’s time to sit back and relax so you can feel how just how good it really is be in that body. Here to guide you deeper on the journey of shamelessly loving the skin you’re in, is the pussy cat of pleasure herself, Pamela Madsen.
