Celebrating black women’s sexuality

The celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8 brings into sharp focus the status of women around the world and to identify strategies for future advancement.

The women’s movement is marked by subtle lifestyle changes and more open communication about health and sexuality issues. Women are learning to apply standards to their own bodies to become educated consumers, especially in reproductive and sexual health.

Women’s shapes and sizes are influenced by ethnicity and genetics. Black women age beautifully, due to the melanin in the skin which keeps them free from wrinkles, compared to their white colleagues of the same age. As black women age, their wrinkle-free skin gives them more personality and attitude as they get spunkier and sexier.
