Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

Jenee Darden speaking at Creative Mornings I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book  and building my speaking career!  You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life.

For the entire month of November I'm bringing you my Black Women &  Sexual Empowerment series. Follow at #BlackWomenSexuality.

This 30-day #NaBloPoMo challenge is no joke! It's just Day 5 but I'm having a lot of fun. Happy Friday! Today I'm giving a shout out to Macy Gray. Macy has made a loving song about her vibrator named B.O.B. This stands for Battery Operated Boyfriend. 

I don't know why women have a hard time discussing masturbation. It's safe. It's healthy. It feels gooooood. And you learn a lot about your body. I think it makes intercourse even more pleasurable because you learn how to control vaginal muscles. 

Macy Gray wrote this song to encourage women to embrace self-pleasure. B.O.B.s can also be used with other lovers. Cosmo has a great post on this.
