OUR MISSION

Posted On: May 29, 2010

“Murder is illegal. But you take a picture of somebody committing the act of murder, they’ll put you on the cover of Newsweek. You might even win a Pulitzer prize. And yet sex is legal. Everybody’s doing it, everybody wants to be doing it. Yet you take a picture of two people in the act of sex or just take a picture of a woman’s naked body and they’ll put you in jail.

… I think the real obscenity comes from raising our youth to believe that sex is bad and ugly and dirty, and yet it is heroic to spill guts and blood in the most ghastly manner in the name of humanity. With all the taboos attached to sex, it’s no wonder we have the problems we have. It’s no wonder we’re angry and violent and genocidal, but ask yourself the question: What is more obscene, sex or war?”

I started this website with the intention of researching and promoting masturbation as a means of fostering self love and sexual acceptance. As a late bloomer who felt incredibly sexual at 6 but didn’t get her first kiss until 18, my hand and a shower head were the only things that got me through my adolescence. If anyone should be able to please you it should be yourself. It has become clear to me, however, that merely encouraging people to explore their bodies is not enough. America is long overdue for another sexual revolution, and I need your help to start one.

For too long now, Americans have been constrained by our Puritan roots and the influence of religious conservatives in this country. Sure, pornography has never been more readily available and vibrators are being sold in local drug stores, but sexual shame still grips a large percentage of men and women. The glimpse of a woman’s breast on national tv causes public outrage. Influential (albeit crazy) politicians wage public campaigns against masturbation and contraception.  Sex is considered more obscene than violence. There are still places in this country where the sale of sex toys is considered a crime! I don’t know about you but I think something is seriously wrong here.

Being comfortable with our sexuality and being fully sexually self expressed is vital to our physical and mental well-being. It is vital to our self love. And one of the best ways to do this, in addition to exploring our bodies, is to open up and talk about sex. Here at Fkmyself.com, you can feel comfortable sharing your stories safely and anonymously. We welcome the full spectrum of the human sexual experience. So go ahead and spill the beans– how did you begin to discover your sexuality? What was the attitude in your household surrounding sex? What was your first sexual experience? Your best? Your worst? Let it all out, you know you’ve been wanting to! Use our submission box on the front page or send your story, artwork and erotic photographs to kim@fkmyself.com. You can choose to remain anonymous; your name and contact information will not be shared.

Don’t worry about whether or not you are a great writer, artist, or photographer — your unique viewpoint is valid enough, no matter how you choose to express it. So please share! Let this be a testing board for your new ideas, thoughts and fetishes. Enjoy perusing our video interviews, news/lullz-worthy items and confessions. We can find strength and liberation here through the thrill of sharing secrets about our most intimate selves as well as the validation in recognizing the same fantasies and fetishes in others. So what are you waiting for? As Alexander Woolcott once said, “Nothing risqué, nothing gained.”
