Warmth is a piece reflecting my relationship to bimboism in that I’m very forthcoming about my sexual desires with partners. I’m open about the warmth and comfort I can bring them in more ways than just physical. To me, modern bimboism is a bit of a reaction to years of oppression forced on the feminine presenting. Sometimes the most empowering thing is asking for exactly what you want in every way. Crocheting is a practice that allows me to construct tangible art utilizing a traditionally feminine pass time.
