Does the thought of not shaving make you feel so good yet so... guilty? We’re all about celebrating the "nasties" as these writers talk about the pleasures and possibilities of living in your body guilt-free. Whether it’s ditching the razor, talking about female pleasure or the cathartic feeling of a fart (don’t deny it!), no taboo is off-topic for these #nastywomen who have made subverting gender norms the new sexy.

This is a pre-recorded session with no live Q&A.
