    That piece on body image and sex brought me to tears; I haven’t seen those feelings articulated clearly anywhere before, but it is exactly what I am struggling with in my late 30s. I’m so happy with so much of my life but love and sex are two things where I just feel adrift much of the time. It’s so frustrating.

    I recently rewatched Sex and the City with some friends (it did not age well, spoiler alert) but watching it today vs in my teens/early 20s was eye-opening, and I saw some of my own problematic beliefs, assumptions and behaviors (similar to what’s in the article) in that show. Thank you for sharing the article!

    Ugh that substack post! How do we do better? How do we give our daughters more?

    I’m reading Girls and Sex by Peggy Orenstein so this is timely but oh so hard to read.

    Wow did that piece ever hit close to home, tears at my desk close… A lot to unpack. Thank you for sharing something so thought provoking.

  4. e says:

    Wow, that substack article. I read it yesterday when you posted it and am still thinking about it today. Great find, thanks for sharing.

  5. Carla says:

    I hate to out myself here but…what’s wrong with ballet flats? For my foot-shaped feet, they are more comfortable than a pointed toe. Is is the flatness? Also more comfortable for me. BUT, I am willing to be convinced otherwise if they actually are heinous!

  6. Nellie says:

    Abra, what do you like about those Nordstrom pajamas as opposed to the Moonlight ones?

  7. […] Abra linked to Jessica’s poignant, “I want you to lick me,“ post in her recent November 3rd Edition. […]
