“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes…the place where love resides.” — Sam Levenson
Welcome to the Beauty of a Woman BlogFest VI! To say I’m thrilled to have you here as a reader, writer or both is a gigantic understatement. As many of you know, I started this fest as a thanks to the support I received after writing about surviving an eating disorder. Since then, the fest has taken on a life of its own, drawing together folks from around the globe in the name of real beauty and the beauty of sexuality. I couldn’t be more grateful for the magic the festers bring.
Today is about you all, so let’s get right to it!
Here’s how it works:
Below you’ll find links to posts by writers from around the world and across the gender spectrum, celebrating real beauty (original category) or the beauty of sexuality (Girl Boner category).
To potentially win a fabulous femme-power prize, do the following by 11pm PST March 11th, 2017:
- Read and comment on all posts in the Original Category (and let me know you did in a comment below): 5 points

I’ll track folks’ points and do a good old fashioned drawing next week, then announce the prize winners here in a followup blog post.
