The Uncomfortably Comfortable is about women in their safe spaces inviting us into their vulnerable and private lives. We then become what could make them unsafe or uncomfortable in that space. Naked women are often objectified or seen as taboo in our society and if it comes from us, we will be censored, banned from social media, or taken advantage of. Alone, in a safe space, things are different: being naked can be empowering, it can hurt, and it can be a way for a woman to heal.
