About this Episode

This is a must listen for women battling sexual shame or body dysmorphia

In this episode of The Revelation Project Podcast we explore women's issues and celebrate the courage of artists who challenge societal norms through their art.

Topics discussed include labiaplasty, sex toys, female anatomy, body acceptance, censorship and so much more.

Michael Ibara is the baker and maker of the infamous instagram profile that explores women's issues through vulva pies @piesinthewindow’
We discuss the impact of Mikel's art in empowering women to embrace their bodies and the harmful consequences of societal norms and judgments when it comes to celebrating the diversity of women’s bodies.

The conversation also touches on the lack of understanding and miseducation by the medical industry regarding labiaplasty, a procedure that resuced the length of the labia minor and the most commonly performed aesthetic genital plastic surgery that can leave women with a lifetime of pain, sexual dysfunction and more.

We also talk about the censorship of female artists face on social media platforms and the blatant bias of the algorithms when it comes to censorship of naked bodies in content posted by female artists and makers vs. those accounts that are focused on men and mens pleasure which is fascinating to hear about!

As a summary this episode emphasizes the importance of art as a tool for liberation, self-acceptance, education and reclaiming our creative power, while also engaging a supportive community to challenge patriarchal programming.

Listeners are encouraged to join our unbecoming coaching circle and explore the work of other empowering women artists mentioned in the episode.

I'm an artist using primarily desserts as an art media to explore women's issues. The expectations and restrictions imposed upon us by society and our self imposed standards are all competing for my attention as I create this art. My career path has taken me from artist to public school art teacher to full-time mom to running a home bakery to teacher again and finally back to myself as an artist. My art is a reflection and convergence of all my life experiences up to this very point in time. More about my work/me can be seen at piesinthewindow.com
