Do the 30-Day Sexy Lie Cleanse!

Caroline Heldman talks about the idea of The Sexy Lie, which is that it’s empowering to see oneself as a sex object. I’m written before about how objectifying oneself leads to negative emotional consequences, so I do believe that this is a lie. Susan Douglas calls it Enlightened Sexism. Whatever you call it, viewing yourself as an object for someone else’s pleasure is not healthy in the long run.

Heldman recommends using her 30 Day Sexy Lie Cleanse to get away from this toxic idea. Check it out and let me know what you think.
