And taking submissions! Do you have a favorite garment? Like taking selfies? You can submit anonymously, or not. We look forward to sharing body positivity and a love of lingerie with you!
Just click the “submit” button at amateurlingerie.tumblr.com, and there should be a text box at the top right where you can attach photos.

Not sure how I feel about this sentiment. Humor is an effective coping mechanism for some people. And I don’t think the point here is trying to find humor in the tragedy itself, but to cheer people up. Still, though, trying to cheer people up easily lends itself to, “Negative emotion? No, no don’t do that. Don’t experience negative emotion, even if it is a valid, natural response to what’s happened to you!”
Picture Gilbert Gottfried saying that. Honestly, that would cheer me up.
Sadly, I have depleted my personal stock of lingerie photos, so I have nothing to post this week. I could take some more pictures of myself, but my vision for this blog was one of many people celebrating our bodies and sharing pictures and stories of our favorite garments together. Of course, I understand why most people are not comfortable with or have no desire to share pictures of themselves. So I have a new idea. If you are not interested in submitting photos of yourself in lingerie, why not send me a fun story about your favorite garment? They could be stories like the ones I’ve shared about my clearance rack finds, or any other anecdote. Can’t wait to hear them!
And do continue to spread the word to any of your friends who might be interested in this blog. Thanks!
The number of pregnancies that result from rape every year in the United States
Relevant to both Todd Akin and every pro-lifer who says pregnancies from rape “aren’t that common” or “don’t happen enough to matter.”
