Being sexy without having sex or doing sexual things
No body teaches you that
No body talks to you about defining your sexy
Without men involved
You’re sexy when you please a man
You’re sexy when you dress for a man
You’re sexy when you’re saving yourself for a man
You’re sexy when you’re under the gaze of a man
They don’t teach you how to value yourself and your sexy
That is what makes it hard
