This month on Vagina Chronicles Podcast, in honor of breast cancer awareness, we’re going to dedicate each episode to breasts. There is so much disfunction in America concerning women’s breasts; over sexualizing, shame, disassociation, objectification, anger, and so many other issues plague our relationship to our breasts.
In this episode, we are talking about breast shame. We discuss how it develops, as well as how that shame can cause us to disconnect from our bodies and lose (or never have) a loving, caring relationship with our breasts.
Although prevention is the optimal strategy for dealing with any disease, early detection is also an extremely important component of healing. We want to encourage all women to do monthly breast self-exams in order to get to know our own bodies. Hopefully, with the compassion and connection gained for ourselves through regular loving touch, we will have the courage and confidence to discuss changes in our bodies with our doctors or healthcare providers.
