Friday, November 8th, is COVERED Boobday!

BoobdayBanner

A State of the Boob Union:

I created this meme for the women out there who felt ashamed of their bodies, who struggled to feel beautiful or sexy.  I wanted to make a space for women to share images of their bodies that they had crafted with care and which imparted a part of themselves.  Then we, their community, would answer back that Yes, you are beautiful.

Women have written me to say this is the first time they’ve ever shared their images and how exhilarated and terrified and amazing they felt in clicking “send”.  They’ve told me how fun it was twisting and turning in the light trying to get that just-right-click.  And they’ve told me how cathartic this project has been for them.  This has made me swell with pride and happiness.  It’s exactly the vein in which Boobday was created.

However, I need to tweak some things to maintain my vision.

I’ll state it plainly since I can:

I want Boobday to be about the art of our bodies, not the hardcore sex lives we lead.  There are other weekly memes for that.

I want the focus to be on your bodies, not anything else.

And this is important (and new):

I’ve said in the past that so long as there were boobs in the pic, I’d post it, but I’m changing that.  I will only post pics where the focus is the woman, not the act in progress.  Even if that act is all about the tits.  If you are unclear what this means for a particular week and theme, email me and we can discuss!  

If you go back and look at old Boobday posts, I think you’ll know what I mean.  And the reason I’m redirecting Boobday is because of my original mission statement: Boobday is a place for us to honor breasts of all shapes and sizes belonging to all types of folks. All of us who are the owners of breasts know their magical powers, but not everyone gets to hear it. I hope this will become a place of support and praise.

If you’re reading this and thinking I’m mad at you, don’t.  I know I have sensitive, wonderful, thoughtful readers and friends who might worry!  If you want to email me to ask, please do, but whatever you do, don’t disappear thinking I’m directing this at you.

I’m the curator of Boobday and lately I feel it’s gone off the rails; it’s my job to get it back on track, so that’s what I’m doing.

I’m also going to say that any themed pics I get will receive preferential treatment in regards to being posted.  I’m not saying you must do the theme, but if you can, please do.  And the themes will be easy, for instance, next week’s theme is CURVE.

So please make a sticky note of the following for future Boobday submissions.  This is what I need:

  1. an attached pic

  2. a sentence about why you chose this particular photo

  3. if you want to be anonymous or not

  4. a hyperlink or URL to your Twitter handle (if you have one)

  5. a hyperlink or URL to your blog post (if you have one and post, it must have my Boobday banner and a link back to me)

I will not look up URLs anymore and that goes for Twitter handles.  If you want to be linked, then send me the actual link/URL.  I hope I don’t sound nit-picky, but every Friday I’m bouncing around between blogs, Twitter, and my email grabbing all the info necessary to direct people to you and your blogs/Twitters.  It takes forever and I basically dread it.  I’m sorta over being in charge of all that.  Until I self-host and am not doing all this by hand, this will be the rules starting next week.

One last thing: Thank you.  Thank you to all of you for making Boobday happen and for sharing yourselves with me.  You are beautiful and passionate and brave and I am unbelievably honored to provide a safe place for you to explore your sexuality and beauty.

Ever humbly yours,

Hy

I think I own a dozen white v-neck shirts. Does that mean they’re my “signature look”?

anisa_covered_boobs_cleavage

G says she struggled this week, but I don’t see it. I only see gorgeous, covered boobies. @CurvyMilfy
scarlett_covered_boobs
Scarlett has one covered, one free. And she’s a real trooper; she took a tumble this week and she still managed to send in her sexy! @ATrueUnfolding
bisexualminx_covered_see_through_purple_tits
BisexualMinx also has something I want: THAT SHIRT. WTF, that thing is hot as hell. Her covered tits aren’t bad, either. @BisexualMinx

NOT my tits (no theme):

kinkybikermom
KBM and her big, luscious breast.

A 40-something single mother who writes honestly about sex, body image, D/s, relationships, her nervous tics, and how much she loves to fucking fuck. She also likes to show you her tits.

  1. Lovely, ladies! Now Beck, I’m totes jealous of all your wear and BisexualMinx, you gave me a lady boner with that shirt. Actually, I’m just a dirty whore who got a lady boner from all the boobiciousness going on here.
    Have a great weekend ladies!!! xxx

  2. Signature look or not, you definitely rock the white t-shirt like no other!
    I’m not sure why I am so hard on myself sometimes, you know how I can be…I see now after reading this that I wasn’t true to the intention of Boobday, to foster our self-love and to enjoy our bodies. Instead I turned a different direction, I wanted to be artsy and creative and when I couldn’t make it happen I started really nitpicking everything about my body. I am forgetful of the whole point or end result sometimes and focus too much on the process…. I am really glad you included me (sorry I was so late!) I do like my photo now, it looks better on your blog for some reason. 😀
    Ladies, I really enjoyed your photos this week!! You are all so gorgeous!

  3. I apologies for not sending the ‘info’ with my boobs. I am well aware how much work it takes managing something like this and making it manageable for you is very important.

    I love boobday. I know I don’t join in all the time, time is what I need more of, but I do try to make a semi regular appearance and share in the wonderfulness that is boobage!

    1. No worries, Molly. Soon I’ll be able to use a Mr. Linky thing and then all will be right in my world!! Yay!

      And I’m always happy to have you pop over when you can; weekly participation certainly isn’t a requirement. You just gotta have some tits! haha xx Hy

  4. Quite a lot of beautiful submissions this week. Hy, yours, Kayla’s, and BisexualMinx though really take the cake. Yowsa!!!
    Certainly perked up this otherwise boring Friday.
    Once again hats off to all you lovely ladies that participate.

  5. My initial thoughts at the prospect of this weeks theme were of abject disappointment.
    Oh, how wrong was I?!
    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the tease counts for so much.
    So so tough to pic a favorite. Any other week, Beck’s leather clad lusciousness would doubtless have been my pick of the week, but I too have a penchant for gloves, so that dubious honour goes to Molly.
    Thank you ladies, one and all! Most enjoyable.

  6. Loving the theme! And the boobs – covered or otherwise.

    And about the rest – it’s your page, your meme, and your rules. I’m happy to comply (and always feel AWFUL when I forget something!).

    XOXO!
