Is it ok to be Pagan and sexy?
Sounds like a strange question doesn’t it? But, think of the standards for women in other religions. If we are a religion shouldn’t we have some standards in common? So, should Pagan women try to hide the fact that they have breasts, faces or a great ass? After all, we know how hard it is for men to control themselves. Especially those wild Pagan men who dance naked by the light of the moon. You just KNOW what’s on their minds…
Being Pagan is about being free. You can choose to conceal your assets, but you don’t have to. There is no condemning, threatening hell to come swoop down and snatch up your evil, dirty filthy wickedness. Pagans don’t believe in hell. You can’t send someone to hell if they don’t believe it’s real. You can’t make threats that aren’t scary enough.
So, Pagan women and men can be sexy. It’s a shame more religions aren’t brave enough and free enough to give people the choice.
