“I recently read that a celebrity’s most satisfying feeling is when she comes home is to take off her bra. It is only then when I remembered that I used to torture my crooked chest with bras myself. Most of them were thrown away & replaced by lingerie you wear for yourself and somebody worthy of seeing your skin embraced by silk or soft cotton.
With only 3 bras left which I never wear anyways, I told him to capture my body having contact with new shapes of my breasts. Bare, bearable life we live: remember, some feminists burnt their bras in public so YOU can do whatever you want. Within your choice.
I stood straight at first, not uncomfortable – just me showcasing those 3 pieces of lingerie still standing still between the two of us.
However, it ended with me collapsing on the bed, calling him, wanting to be released. It was then when the camera shot picture 37 & 38. I guess I can call myself lucky.”
