Most people understand the idea that it’s not enough to just not have your partner protesting you having sex, and that you shouldn’t proceed unless you know your partner is actively into it.
We’re always trying to think about how can we create beautiful signage, beautiful florals and integrate them into the shot. When something just keeps getting your attention and momentum is happening you have to listen to it. We weren’t really thinking of it as a whole separate entity and then we brought it on the road. My moment is pretty specific, and I don’t talk about it that much. I had a business partner for the first few years and needless to say, money issues arose and money was in places it shouldn’t have been. I had to make some really tough decisions friendship-wise and business-wise.
During set up we’ll post some of the Instagram-able moments. If you go to a dark dinner or dark event you can’t shoot anything without it looking really awful. The middle room was super dark, so we had to flood that room with light. It started as a partnership with Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. They weren’t getting a lot of people booking on Sunday nights. I thought, “Let’s take it and see what happens.” We did Portland, Montauk and Brooklyn. It was a press darling; press kept reaching out to us. It was one of those things where I felt like this had only happened to me.
I think everyone thinks we have it figured out, but we’re such a tiny team and we’re new to this as well! One of the panels that I really enjoyed was “Getting Niche: Finding an untapped market and creating a unique brand online”. He’s a little bit older and wiser in a sense that he’s very good at saying, “You need to shut your computer and we’re going for a walk. It was a beautiful old school house: super narrow and three floors. And talk about someone who had a million “No’s” thrown her way.
As much as I love personal style [blogs] and all that stuff, I think the future of blogging is the sites that don’t require the person to be there to operate. S.- I Made This could run on its own eventually, and that’s what I aspire to. My ex-boyfriend was a business owner– totally different industry. It was really interesting because I felt like it was constant competition in a weird way, and no one was providing the balance the other person needed. You need to disconnect.” There are nights where I’m literally like, “I need to work all night.” And he says, “Here’s a cup of coffee.” He’s supportive both ways. There are all sorts of levels of people attending, which was another thing that I think is interesting.
That was a revolution on its own, but you argue it’s unfinished.
It had to have me in it, and I had to be the face of it. I was barely on Tinder, I would just do it for fun. On our first couple of dates we didn’t talk about work at all– which I thought was impossible. I was so excited for that picture moment with the sign with everyone, so I was super bummed about that.
That puts pressure on us to have this transformative sex all the time. Sometimes sex is just comforting or fun or a release.But they’re not really making us free because the things that are keeping us from not feeling free sexually are not individual, they’re systemic."As a millennial, one of the most heartbreaking examples of “fauxpowement” you call out in the book are The Spice Girls. "First, I just need to say I don’t want to make anyone feel bad about liking the Spice Girls. And to be clear, I took a lyric of theirs — 'what you really, really want' for the title of my second book.A lot of the stuff that falls under this fauxpowerment umbrella is stuff we can enjoy, but we need to not mistake for power.The most that the Spice Girls really ever ask is, 'If you wanna be my lover, you have to get with my friends.' Their lyrics don’t ask or demand any kind of social change."You don’t identify with the sex positivity movement, which I find really surprising considering your work. "It’s an uncomfortable conversation for me because I know a lot of people who do great work under that umbrella. But I don’t think in its current iteration it’s doing the work it needs to do.I’ve talked to a lot of people who feel literally not invited to the table when they hear the term 'sex positive.' There are a lot of people for whom sex just hasn’t been positive."I think that we’ve been successful at getting people to understand the idea of Yes Means Yes.
