Welcome to Project Naked

Project Naked is about empowering women to talk frankly about their bodies. This is a positive space where women can share their experiences, stories, and what they love or, unfortunately, despise in an honest and safe place.

We believe women’s bodies are incredible – from the multiple orgasms to the fact that some of us can make and deliver babies, and we are fighters; we have strength – whether we know it or not.
We live our lives in these bodies; every day we carry them with us. It’s not just how they look (as important as that can feel!), it’s how they work as well. It’s what they’ve lived through and how we experience life in them.

We want to be clear that Project Naked is an inclusive space. “Women” obviously includes trans women, whatever stage you might be at in your transition and whether or not you’re out publicly. We’re also open to hearing the stories of others who experience gender-based oppression – genderqueer people, those who were assigned female at birth, and those who are read as female but don’t identify that way. This is by no means an exhaustive list! We publish all relevant material that we receive, and we want to be able to share as wide a range of stories as possible.

If you would like to send us a story, an experience, a photo, a poem, a rant… then we would love to hear from you. We will put up all submissions body related – positive, negative, long or short. Have a read through the posts for inspiration, start writing down your thoughts and feelings; whether you send them in or not it can be a very cathartic experience doing so.

Every body has a story. What’s yours?

Submit your story to:
projectnaked@gmail.com – let us know if you prefer to be anonymous, or if you have a blog you’d like us to link to.

You can also contact us on Twitter @project_naked

  1. Following your blog after I saw a sticker on the toilet cubicle door in the backpackers bar in Edinburgh xxxxxx Loves it x

    • Thanks so much, glad you enjoy it. Tell your friends, and of course we’d love to hear from you if you’d like to write a post :)

  2. Thank you so much for what you are doing.. I work on the same topic and help women learn to love their body no matter their shape or size. I would love to speak with you further as I have a campaign called “Bath Talks” where women are getting naked in the bathtub and talking about how they feel about their body and them self. You can see some of the bath talk videos (those that have already been released) at my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/BodyLiberator?feature=guide. I’d love to email directly with you if you are interested bodyliberator@gmail.com . Thank you for helping in such an important issue that is worldwide. Bonnie Gayle

  5. This is a great idea. As a feminist in many poetry workshops full of men and women who didn’t “get” my poetry about sex abuse, women’s bodies, good sex, losing virginity, having babies, etc., I love that you have this forum. Fist bump! Breast bump! Yay!

    • So glad you like it! If you fancy sending us some of your poetry, or a story about getting frustrated in workshops with people who don’t “get” it, that’d be great :) Our stories are so important and so often left out of the media. Fist bumps and breast bumps all round!

  6. Thank you so much for this blog. I suffer from Lichen Sclerosus which is an auto-immune disease which affects the vulva. I write my blog on my experience of this. It is so important for women to have an open dialogue about themselves and their bodies. Most women with my disease will never be diagnosed or receive treatment because of a lack of dialogue. Which is awful because LS is so debilitating and scaring.

  7. Wow, thank you so much! Im humbled by your words. I haven’t heard of this award thingy but it seems a wonderful way to share blogs and network and I’m flattered you’ve chosen us as one of your nominations. Big shout back to you, what you write is an inspiration. Thank you :)
