While I haven’t been able to make it to a workshop yet (it’s on my list), being in this group has had an impact on how I see boudoir. It’s a supportive space where you don’t feel alone trying to support folx with boudoir, and trying to remove the male gaze from it. In so many other groups and education, there’s talk about changing the way people’s bodies look and you see one type of body shape. The word “flattering” is used with the goal of assuming someone wants to look smaller. In here is about wanting to let people take up space and tell their story. It’s refreshing as hell in an industry that can be exhausting in how it treats and speaks about the clients it serves.
