Comment of the Week: Self Doubt Ain’t Sexy by Em & Lo | 2 Chime in! photo via flickr Short term, you could probably get away with [covering your breasts during sex]. Long term, no way – and you shouldn’t try. Look, I don’t know what your boobs are like, but any (decent) guy who might be disappointed by them will be more disappointed by your crippling self-doubt. You don’t have to “learn to love them,” but you do have to learn to accept that none of us have perfect bodies – not even supermodels. Grown-up guys (aka “men”) don’t expect perfection. And if they love you for you, they’ll love your boobs, however imperfect they may be (and I neither confirm nor deny that they’re imperfect!). All that said, you have no obligation to lead with them on night one; and when the time comes take a moment to have a talk with your lover first and tell him you’re insecure about your breasts. A good one will pull through. Finally, being in a secure relationship is all about being vulnerable. My partner knows all my warts, even the ones that I can barely admit to myself. It feels good when you get there – trust me. — E.M., responding to the post “Your Call: Can She Keep Her Boobs Covered Up During Sex?” Body Image,Boobs,Comments SHARE THIS | 2 Chime in!
