“Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?”
– Maya Angelou
This issue stares at the forbidden.
It beckons that which has been silenced, censored and not permitted.
That of which is difficult to obtain and dangerous to possess.
The taboo – or as we explore within the pages here – tapu.
There is an undeniable charm to the unsanctioned; a deep lusciousness to the prohibited.
But this is not a conversation of right and wrong. Of morality or libertinism.
It’s a bow for intellectual freedom.
The kind of mental
Freedom, without the freedom to offend or challenge, does not exist.
We need to see it all to make our minds up for ourselves.
