Feeling Myself

How I shed my shame to find sexual freedom and you can too



The first book by influencer Natalie Lee in an on-trend area of women's health

Trauma, porn, masturbation, sexuality, sex after motherhood, sex when you feel sh*t about your body, sex after separation... these are all topics around which we skirt delicately, as if they're bombs which will explode if we prod them too curiously. In this way, sex is intimately connected with shame. Like most of us, shame has followed me around for most of my life. I feel shame for the colour of my skin, shame for being female, and shame for wanting more, but I also felt an intense shame around the subject of masturbation. Even as an adult, I carried an intense feeling that masturbation was somehow dirty. I look back on this now and realise how warped our approach to sex is and how the shame that surrounds these conversations holds women back.

Feeling Myself
will tell my story, beginning with trauma and moving into virginity, masturbation, porn, marriage, motherhood, body image and ending with sexual liberation. My goal is for every woman reading this book is to feel empowered and have the tools to grow and experience their own emancipation too.
