In this episode, Kyla talks about the idea young women are raised with - the idea that you will meet a man, you marry him, you buy a house, you have children. But no one talks about how it consumes 20 years of your life… and what is AFTER that. It's only when you hit that line you start thinking – sh&%t, what am I going to do now?
Also, as a Manager of a chain of adult stores, Kyla talks about the importance of breaking down stigma and barriers around sexuality, likes and dislikes, and what’s perceived as right and wrong in anything of a sexual nature. She says that a lot of women in their 50s and 60s who visit the stores she manages never had or used toys. Going through them and making women realise that it’s not that scary, and fun is an important part of Kyla’s mission. She thinks that it's incredibly important for self-care that every woman deserves self-pleasure every now and then.
With the biggest challenge of realising her mortality, Kyla wants to do more, to get out there and make the most of it. She wants to leave the rest of her life, not having regrets and do everything she wants to do.
Her advice to younger women - You need to make sure that you are putting yourself first! And yep….Don’t eat that extra donut!
This is the 45 over 45 chapter of MY BODY MY STORY podcast, where we celebrate rule breakers and role models - the women who inspire us to live life our way and to show their SENSUALITY, BEAUTY, SOUL, and TRUE ESSENCE.
