Ahh, it's kinda depressing to come here and see like 3 posts about bad body image/I think I'm too fat/cosmetic surgery (for your genitals!!) so I thought we should all see what we love about our bodies. Go on, get naked, take a long hard stare and tell us what you love

*my calves! they're not bulky but not fat at all
*my tummy, it's all nice and curvy. the kind of tummy you want to put your head on and fall asleep
*my back. I just think backs are really sexy and mine happens to be nice looking (but then again have you ever seen someone without a pretty back? it's impossible!)

Great topic I think it's important that we all take the time to appreciate our bodies instead of finding their flaws. I personally like my breasts. They're not the same size, and they have a few stretch marks on them, but that's what makes them unique I think they're beautiful. And I like the curves above my hips. I don't know why, but I just do!

My eyes, my lips, my chin, my neck, my hair, my ears, my teeth, my chest shape, my breasts, my skin, my belly button, my semi-pot belly, my shoulders and shoulderblades, my back, my fingers, my hips, my thighs, my knees, my shins and calves, my ankles, my toes.. my brain

There really isn't a part of my body I don't love.. it's all part of me, and I love me..

Hey Brittany, I guess what they say about great minds is true.

I love my wrists they look so fragile they might snap they intrigue(sorry about the spellings) me. I love my back and how it is so flexible and the way you can feel my spine when u run your fingers down it. I have to say i love my hair its soo thick but the colour is just amazing its a very deep alburn with brown and strawberry blond tints the only annoying thing about it is that i am constanly asked if its natural. but oh well what can u do!!!!!!
loads of love

Ah, I don't think we can have too many posts like this, do you? Besides, I never took a turn last time.

I love my coloring: I love the blue-green of my eyes, my reddish hair (even the grey and white streaks growing in it) and my truckload of freckles.

I love my back and I love that my body is very curvy yet strong and muscluar at the same time. I grew up having no problem being told I was built like a brick you-know-what -house. It made me smile. And I like that that curvy strong body is also short (though I do wish they'd build cabinets a bit closer to the ground).

And I also love having very full lips.

Yes, I agree, there can never be too many body-positive posts!

Today, I especially back, because it's so strong and muscular - I can feel it's strength when I stand up straight and when I move. I also like my eyes, because their colour is fab...a deep blue-grey. And I like my lips today, because they are full and sensual.

A good body day today.

I like my muscles.

Muscles for the crushing and destroying of my enemies!

I will kill them all mercilessly, then sail little toy boats down the rivers of blood!


Is it time for my medication again?

I also like my lack of back hair.

Sigh, one can never be too narcissistic.

I love my height. It's wonderful being tall.

I love my neck because it's long and white. I like thinking I'm a swan.

I love my legs because without them, shopping wouldn't be as fun.

I love my slim fingers because it's fun painting my nails.

I like my big nose too coz it means I will lead a prosperous life.

I love me.

There were times when I didn't like my body at all...

Currently I love it... I feel like I'm right in the middle of it.

my skin - so soft and smooth
my shoulders - strong
my waist - in a good shape
my nose - slim but not skinny
my clit - so much plesure

I agree, this is a wonderful topic. It lets people focus on features of their body that they like, rather then ones that they don't like as much.
I would have to say that I like my hair. It's light brown,long,layered and thick, with all these blonde highlights. I recently got orange highlights put in my hair! I also like my slim waist and my short legs!

my hair is wonderous...long and thick and shiny with a natural slight wave.

i love my eyes:medium almond shaped and a deep honey color, and my full lips.

i love my tummy even if it doesn't look perfect in a bikini cos i like being held there and it's soft.

my legs are muscular and i like showing them off. i'm petite, 5'3, but when i wear heels, i look statuesque.

most of all i love my intelligence and open mind and willingness to help others...

(a goddess! athene!)

have i been wrong?
have i been wise?
to shut my eyes and play along?
