Fuck Fear- Show Stigma the Finger

The Devil whispered in my ear, “You’re not strong enough to withstand the storm.”

Today I whispered in the Devil’s ear, “I AM the storm.”

Sex-toy company Hot Octopuss are currently running a campaign called “Show Stigma the Finger” all about challenging the stigma that surrounds sex and masturbation. We have all seen how puritanical attitudes toward sex and sexuality rapidly turned tumblr into yesterday’s news. Facebook will display all kinds of horrific content, fake news, right-wing propaganda and bogus political posts, but heaven forbid anyone shows a nipple! Twitter has, so far, been accepting of NSFW content, but who knows how long that will last?

This month’s Sinful Sunday prompt is Quote me a Halloween. For me, one of the things that I find scary in this world is the fact that there is still such intolerance, cruelty and judgment. In Show[ing] Stigma the Finger in this photo, I am not just endorsing Hot Octopuss’ important campaign, but am also giving the finger to hypocrites, hate-mongers and those who continue to stigmatise sexuality. Shouting at the Devils, “You will not win. Love is stronger than hate. I #resist.”

Kiss the lips to visit some more sinners.

    1. Thank you, Deevie. Yes, it came out particularly red in this one. Which actually works very well for the topic, I guess. Spooky! It’s like my hair was channelling my rage and frustration, lol! πŸ˜‚πŸ’–

  1. I am really feeling you on this one Jupiter. Great post and photo! I’d been wanting to make a photo like this JUST BECAUSE I was in the mood and it’s nice to know it’s actually, you know, a thing. So that I don’t just seem hostile and crazy lol. Thanks for making me smile.
