Do you love your body? Far too many people don’t – so when Express Magazine asked me to write about body love – at every size – for their recent fashion issue, I was delighted to do so.

(The amazing body paint you can see more of here and here and here!)
Something I’ve very much enjoyed participating in over the last year or so is the (Exhibitionist) Scavenger Hunt. Happily, I am able to provide a new home for the Scavenger Hunt – and you’re all very welcome to start participating, continue participating, share the possibility of participating, etc. Get those clothes off and those cameras out!
Now I’ve already gotten either some or all of my kit off at the airport, on the beach, by a monument, at the museum, in a sex shop, on the train, and in a tunnel. That’s seven locations – and I need ten to get to gold. So, without further ado, three more places I’ve been naughty, all with clicks. Yay for GOLD! (And yay for Hylas, who keeps taking photos for me!)
The sun beats hot and sultry upon my purple skin. As I caper delightedly across the sand, sharing the joy of loving your body – and loving mine as well – I revel at being out in public wearing naught but paint and accessories.
What do they see? A goddess? Rolls of fat that disgust them? An amazing parasol shading a vision? A body that’s not normally expressed? Positive or negative or something in-between?

Saturday – Love Your Body Day – was a day of awesome!
It started with waking up at dark o’clock, quickly followed by Hylas and I sitting on our arses outside the Ruby Jack Studio in Grey Lynn at 6:50am, waiting for everyone else to show up.
I think you all know by now that I love my body – but do you love yours?
October is Love Your Body month, and tomorrow (October 16), is Love Your Body day! This is run by EDEN – the Eating Difficulties Education Network – and is a very awesome thing
Why am I writing about this? Well, tomorrow, for Love Your Body day, there’s going to be three local women body-painted, then taking to the streets of Auckland. And one of those women is me!
