I Would Never Have Reached This Point of Body Confidence & Sex Positivity Had it Not Been for You

I love fanmail like this:

Dear Betty and Carlin,

I'm writing to tell you girls how much your work has changed my life. I am 19 years old, a woman, and a student. Today for the first time, I put in my diaphragm as preparation for a potential hook up. (By the way, when I got fitted for it not only was I compared to women from the 70s, I was the first to ask for one in over a year -- and at a university women's clinic! We need to get the word out on this godsend.) I did my makeup, picked a nice dress, put that spermicide in and popped that baby right up in there.

I know that I would never have reached this point of body confidence and sex positivity had it not been for you girls. Every chance I get I tell my girlfriends (and guys) about you two in the hopes that someone else can be helped by your work as much as you helped me -- I was a product of 11 years of strict Baptist private schooling (sexual repression is no stranger to me). My dream would be to go to one of your workshops -- please don't stop them anytime soon! :) I want to save up this year and be able to meet you two and experience group orgasm as soon as I can.

Anyways, thanks again for all that you've done. There is no way you can know how much you have helped me become the woman I am today -- proud, feminist, and sexual.
