How Growing Back My Bush Helped Me Embrace My Womanhood

2015-08-18-1439897408-9486658-Bush3crop.jpg
Photographer: Craig White

One month before I went to a nude beach for the first time at 59, I started dreaming up ways to camouflage my private parts, scars, pale skin, and stretch marks. It had been awhile since I’d needed to worry about beach-body stress.

Typically before going on vacation I spend a good long time picking out swimsuits that look attractive and hide any body areas that I don’t want to show off. But, since wearing a bathing suit at a nude beach was out of the question, I decided on the next best thing:

I’ll get a tan and grow back my bush!

Both of these were big leaps for me. My body hadn’t experienced a deliberate tan in 15 years, and my bush — well, let’s just say I should have invested in Gillette. I was very nervous, but I felt like having a little color on my skin and some natural coverage down below would give me the courage and confidence I needed in order to try nude beach-going. I figured my skin would survive a few sessions of a light bulb tan, and I knew I could always shave afterwards if I hated the return of the long-absent bush. I was on a mission, and there was no turning back!

I found a tanning salon near my house, and the first thing I noticed while I was filling out the client intake form was that I seemed to be the only person in there that needed a tan. I’d never seen tanner people in my life, including the receptionist and all the clients entering and exiting the tanning rooms. After a few minutes of waiting, I entered a beginner’s tanning booth. The receptionist showed me how to turn the bed on, and then I was left alone to read (and, of course, disregard) a sign that warned “Do not go nude for the first two tanning sessions.”

After three seven-minute tanning sessions in the weeks before I hit the beach, I was golden from head to toe, and my bush was growing back nicely.

When nude beach day finally arrived, I stripped down and starting looking around at the other nude sunbathers, only to discover that my master plan had backfired — I was the only woman on the beach with a bush! Instead of blending in, I stood out, and in those first few anxious moments, I wanted to go back in time and slap some sense into my month-younger self.

But then a funny thing happened. I noticed that, even though I looked different from the other women there, having a bush did make me feel more confident. I felt like I was embracing my womanhood and all that being a woman entails, and I was happy and comfortable as I let my body be exactly how it naturally wanted to be.

2015-08-18-1439897586-8390398-Bush1.jpg
Photographer: Craig White

Soon, I started wondering why I ever shaved down there to begin with, and the more I thought about it, the more ridiculous a bald V-spot seemed to me. Where did I get the notion that having a bush was a problem that needed to be fixed? That it was unsightly or undesirable? Was it from society, the media, a trend, or men? Most likely, it was a little of all the above. All I knew for sure that day, though, was that I was suddenly tired of judging myself based on other people’s standards of beauty. All because of my newly grown-out bush, I started feeling really good about loving every part of me.

I’m not a porn star who needs to show every crevice to her fans, and I’m not an 11-year-old pre-pubescent girl. I’m a grown woman, and I think having grown pubic hair is sexy as hell. I’m not saying that a little grooming is not in order, and of course everyone has different preferences, but for my part, I have no intentions of ever shaving down there again.

That day on the beach, I learned to love my bush — to view it not as something to be ashamed of or to hide, but as a beautiful, honorable badge of womanhood.

How Hiking Helped Me Move Past The Pain Of Divorce

If there’s ever a time you need a little distraction in your life, it’s during the divorce process. That’s why we launched our Divorce Care Package series. With each post, we’ll show you what things — books, movies, recipes — helped others relieve stress in the midst of divorce, in the hopes that a few of their picks will serve you well too. Want to share what got you through your divorce? Email us at divorce@huffingtonpost.com or tweet @HuffPost Divorce

When her marriage ended in divorce after 10 years, Carol Schaffer wasn’t eager for a fresh start. Still shaken up by the split, Schaffer said she held tight to the people and pastimes she loved and only introduced new things into her life (hiking, “Seinfeld” binge-fests) if they helped her heal in some way.

“You can’t change everything about your life right away after a separation,” Schaffer, who lives in California, recently told The Huffington Post. “Some people are tempted to make all kinds of changes to themselves and their lives right away, but I took the most comfort in the things that stayed the same like cooking big dinners and having sit-down meals with my kids.”

Below, Schaffer shares five things (some tried-and-true, some new) that made life a little more bearable during her divorce.

Darryl Strawberry On The ‘Defining Moment’ That Helped Him Overcome Addiction

On the baseball field, Darryl Strawberry seemed like he could do no wrong. He was drafted by the New York Mets right out of high school, won four World Series championships and was voted to eight All-Star Games, making him not only one of the most talented but also one of the most popular players in the Major League. Off the field, however, was a different story.

Darryl had a very public battle with drug addiction and often made headlines for his bad behavior, leaving in his wake a series of arrests and legal troubles that, for many, overshadowed his legendary career. Today, however, the 53-year-old’s life is much different. As he tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” in the above video, he now finds far more value in life itself than he does in baseball.

“I don’t miss the game, because it’s a game. Life is not a game,” Darryl says. “Life is a journey, and life is more important than a baseball game.”

What’s most important is his own life, he adds, are his children, his relationship with God and his wife, Tracy, whom he credits with helping him turn things around. “It was a defining moment about 11 years ago when I met Tracy… who I’m truly grateful for,” Darryl says.

The two met when they both attended a Narcotics Anonymous convention in 2003; their similar struggles seemed to bring them together. “We had lost ourselves,” Tracy says. “I was fighting drug addiction and losing my children and alcoholism. Darryl, obviously, as everyone knows, was fighting the same battle.”

As rocky as the time was, Tracy and Darryl began dating. However, despite Darryl’s past success, the couple found themselves in a rather humbling living situation.

“We were living in my parents’ basement,” Tracy says. “You have an eight-time All-Star, four-time World Series champion living downstairs in the basement, sleeping in the bed that I [slept in during] high school.”

The Strawberrys openly admit to experiencing various challenges in their relationship — from financial difficulties to trust issues — and the stark reality of their situation soon set in for Tracy.

“She decided, ‘This is it. We’re not doing this no more. Either we’re going to live right or we’re not going to be together,'” Darryl says. “And we did that.”

They married in 2006 and worked through their issues, becoming active in church. In 2010, Darryl and Tracy, both now ordained ministers, founded Strawberry Ministries, and in 2014, they helped open the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center in Florida. Today, they live in Missouri, focusing on their faith and helping those in need. For Darryl, it’s proven far more satisfying than anything else he’s accomplished.

“I really realized that that was the most important gift that we had ever given to ourselves — becoming a servant to others,” Darryl says.

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network.

How My Divorce Helped Me Get Through My Mother’s Death

I went home to Portland, Oregon to celebrate New Year’s in the waning days of December 2011. In the few months since my previous visit, I had decided to end my marriage to my husband of three years — and closest friend for nearly seven. He’d be moving out of our Brooklyn apartment while I was away. I was 29.

Why My Divorce Helped My Dreams Come True

I have learned a lot in my 43 years — more than I really thought I needed to learn. I learned that people are not always who they seem. I learned that people who are supposed to love you can hurt you the most. I learned that when you try to do all of the right things, things still go wrong. I learned that when everything goes wrong at once, you just have to hold on for dear life. I learned that perspective is a beautiful thing. I learned to trust myself. I learned that doing the right thing may not get you what you want, but you will be able to look in the mirror. I learned that I, and only I, am responsible for my happiness. And most of all I have learned who I am and what I am capable of doing.

Many of these lessons came from my divorce and the ensuing hell that followed. I will not go into specifics for the sake of my children, however, I was with the wrong person. I was with someone who was not who he had claimed to be for the entirety of our marriage. After 10 years, the mask came off. About the same time, my youngest son began having seizures. On the hour, every hour for two weeks and then once a month for a year.

That exact period of time during the divorce and the seizures was the single most difficult time I had ever experienced. Life felt like everything was falling apart at once. Looking back, the seizures couldn’t have been predicted, but the years that led up to this moment telegraphed the end of my marriage. I was with someone who tore me down rather than built me up. I was with someone who minimized my goals and dreams while he went to law school and followed his. I was with someone who wore me out needing validation while offering the opposite of that to me.

Finally, I was with someone who was ambivalent about my writing. The response was always, “Eh, it’s okay.” I was told that I couldn’t write a book or make a living writing at all. I was discouraged from following my path. It was generally a subtle blow off, a disregard for what I thought and felt, but over time it seeped in and infiltrated my life.

The fact that I listened to this discouragement is my responsibility, but I think a lot of people, when told over and over how inadequate they are, begin to internalize some of this thinking. It’s almost funny to me because I am generally not someone to suffer a crisis of confidence, but life was busy. We had three kids in four years. He was in law school and studying for the bar exam. I just put my priorities aside and when I received negative feedback, it was easier to keep them aside.

Believe it or not, the thing that woke me up in my life was my son’s seizures. As I said, perspective is a beautiful thing. And with his condition, came an immediate shift from the difficulty of my divorce to getting this 2-year-old child well. And after that, being able to take care of my children. And after that, regaining my confidence and happiness.

The evolution for me occurred over the next eight years. My kids and I had to move in with my parents for a while until my son’s seizures were controlled (he is now, 10 years later, seizure-free and has been released from his neurologist.) I got a job. I healed. It was no easy task. When things settled down I realized that my own path had gotten derailed. With my divorce came freedom to rediscover my dreams and reevaluate what a good relationship should be. I worked on becoming a whole person by myself so that my path would be strong with or without a partner.

When I began online dating, I had one crazy date after the other — married guys, criminal guys, toothless guys — who knew this was in store for me! I learned how to date (especially having kids to think of), what I wanted and how to get it.

My friends began telling me I needed to write these dates down. So, I began a blog. It was originally called You Can’t Make This Shit Up. I chronicled all of my funny and horrifying dates for everyone to read, and began writing again. After about five years, the online quest finally met its demise when I met my now husband. My husband is supportive, caring and encouraging. He met me when I had learned that I could be happy on my own, when I knew what I wanted and when I was ready to go after it.

With his support and encouragement, I turned my blog into a book. I added in all of the dating lessons I learned during some hard and crazy times. I began working as a freelance writer while working to promote my book. I am helping to support my family as a writer, and I am happy and whole. The book will be released on April 1, 2015 and is now called Sweeten the Deal: How to Spot and Avoid the Big Red Flags in Online Dating. My first book signing is scheduled, my family will be there. I am excited and ready for the next adventure! Onward!

11 Things That Helped People Everywhere Love Their Bodies In 2014

For women, 2014 was a year of great steps forward — and unfortunate setbacks. One area where there was much, much more celebration than disappointment was the movement to accept all bodies as beautiful.

Here are 11 projects, campaigns and movements from 2014 that are helping people to love their bodies and to fight back against harmful beauty standards:

1. The “Love Your Lines” Instagram Account

Stretchmarks are one of the many things women are taught to be ashamed of — even though an estimated 80 percent of people have them. Two east coast mothers decided to start an Instagram account celebrating stretch marks and scars as beautiful, rather than “flaws.” They asked women to send in photo submissions and a description of how they felt about their “lines” — and the responses were truly amazing.

2. The Harvard Rugby Team’s “Rugged Grace” Series

The young women on the team produced an incredible series of photographs in which they each shared what they admired about another woman’s body and character in messages written on each other’s skin.

“The project was inspired by the amazing body positivity and acceptance that we saw on our team,” team member Helen Clark told The Huffington Post. “It’s so refreshing to see a group of women being proud of the strength they’ve achieved through hours of training, and to see them celebrating the physical manifestations of that strength.”

3. “Stop The Beauty Madness”

Robin Rice’s awareness-raising campaign features 25 jarring ads that show the types of images you might see in magazines alongside brutally honest commentary. The text in the ads reference[s] the “madness” of the standards we hold women to, with the hopes of making viewers re-think their reactions to images of female beauty.

“We look at beauty magazines and fashion photographs and whether we theoretically believe in them or not, we’ve seen so many of them and they’ve been put into exactly the right light and ratio that something inside of us has said ‘That’s beautiful,'” Rice told The Huffington Post. “Whether or not we believe in it intellectually, something deeper has set in and we compare ourselves to that.”

4. When “Real Men” Posed In Underwear Ads

Men suffer from poor body image, too. The Sun’s photo series showing “real men” posing in underwear ads showed the pressures men face when comparing themselves to models or professional athletes — though by all accounts, the “normal” guys in this series have nothing to be ashamed of.

5. “If People Were Honest About Women’s Bodies”

This BuzzFeed video shows how crazy it sounds when people verbalize cultural expectations about women’s bodies. Imagine if a friend looked in the mirror and said, “I’ve been conditioned to be critical of myself and use self-deprecation as a cover up, so people don’t think I’m conceited, but the truth is, I look amazing.” SO much better than fat talk.

6. When 10 Total Strangers Got Naked Together In Search Of Body Acceptance

In “SHINE,” a video produced by The Goddess Project, 10 women came together to discuss their body insecurities and how they are learning to love themselves.

“We have to stick together and empower each other to overcome all of the stereotypes placed against us,” one participant in the video says. “No matter what we’ve been conditioned to believe, it’s time to step up and recognize how beautiful we really are.”

7. Blogger Gabi Fresh’s Version Of The ***Flawless Music Video

Plus-size style blogger Gabi Fresh teamed up with fellow bloggers Nadia Aboulhosn and Tess Munster to film a cover of Bey’s anthem — this time celebrating larger bodies.

“For me, this video is to show all of my followers that you define your definition of beauty,” Aboulhosn wrote on her blog. “Don’t let anyone tell you to be or look a certain way. We are all flawless and [keep] reminding yourself of that.”

8. The “Fattitude” Documentary

Fat activist Lindsey Averill is teaming up with filmmaker Viridiana Lieberman to make a feature-length documentary about fat discrimination, fighting prejudice against overweight people and helping viewers see that size is not an indicator of worth — big sizes are beautiful, too. The trailer launched in April, and the full film is slated for release in 2015.

9. The “Natural Beauty” Photo Series

Photographer Ben Hopper’s stunning portraits of women showing their underarm hair challenges the idea that women should be hairless to be beautiful.

“The whole point [of the series] is contrast between fashionable female beauty and the raw unconventional look of female armpit hair,” Hopper told The Huffington Post. “I expect [the photos] will surprise a lot of people and I guess, in a way, that is one of my intentions.”

10. Zoë Ley’s Body-Positive Fitspiration

“Fitspo” may be the new “thinspo,” and it’s not always harmless motivation. Blogger Zoë Ley of “Weirdly Shaped” created her own hilarious “fitspiration” images deconstructing some of the messages and reminding women that it’s OK if you don’t have rock-solid abs or work out five days a week.

Photographer Victoria Janashvili’s images prove that plus-size bodies are fine art, too.

Tavi Gevinson On How Taylor Swift Helped Her Through Her First Break-Up

She was sitting front row at fashion shows at the age of 13, running her own magazine by the time she hit 15 and now, at 18, will be starring in the Broadway production of “This Is Our Youth,” this month. Tavi Gevinson seems anything but your average teenager, but as it turns out, her high school experience was … pretty average.

As the newest cover star gracing New York Magazine’s fall fashion issue, the recent graduate is all grown up, opening up about normal teen milestones like crushes, hormones and break-ups (though to be fair, not everyone gets to be consoled by Taylor Swift). Scroll down below for highlights from the interview and photos, and head over to nymag.com for more.

On high school…
“I think everybody should go to high school. It’s horrible, and it unites you with other people.”

On moving to New York…
“Every time I’m like, What if I go to New York and I get caught up and I become a horrible person? But then I’m also like, I’m about to discover a lot of things about myself, like this poem I have on my wall. The last lines are: ‘You have not grown old and it is not too late to dive into your increasing depths where life calmly gives out its own secret.’ And that’s something that I repeated to myself a lot after the breakup and that I think about a lot whenever I feel like being a teenager is so much of who I am and I get nervous, and then it’s like, No. Things are just beginning.”

On the bright-side of this summer’s break-up…
“… coming out of the breakup has kind of reignited my love for fashion, because it’s a way of asserting a new identity and becoming a new person and giving yourself space.”

On her first break-up with her high school boyfriend…
“I flew straight to New York for a wedding, and then I visited Taylor Swift at her home in Rhode Island. I hate being heartbroken, but who better to discuss it with than Taylor Swift?”

On her identity as an actor…
“I no longer get into stupid thought wormholes about identity and stuff. At one time I did have some impostor syndrome about acting, but then I remembered I’ve been doing this since I was little, actually.”

On her character in “This Is Our Youth”…
“Kenny said most girls just play her as a bitch, and in the beginning I think I was playing her that way, but then I started discovering her layers.”

On whether she’ll miss being a teenager…
“I will try to hold on to the intense feeling. I will both be glad that that’s no longer happening and kind of miss it. When you’re 14, you’re basically on drugs all the time — the hormones in your body are so crazy. But I really loved and appreciated the intensity of that. And you’re experiencing everything for the first time, so everything feels like an epiphany. And, like, I really liked the experience of having a crush, because I was like, this is my thing and it doesn’t have to do with you and you’re just some dummy boy for me to project on.”

In February 2007, Oprah and her personal trainer, Bob Greene, helped guide six people in their quest to lose weight and live their best lives. One of the participants, Bill, struggled with emotional eating and setting unrealistic expectations for himself. Although he owned four health clubs and clearly understood the importance of fitness, Bill gained more than 100 pounds after getting married, bringing his total weight to 293 pounds. Find out how Bill realized weight loss was about more than changing your diet—it’s about changing your life.
