Christina Wilborn is the Co-Founder and Co-Creator of Womxnvibe. Reminding womxn that it is OK to own their confidence in their sexual identity, and that taking up space is necessary to develop the stronghold in our individual powers. She is a hope dealer who encourages and empowers womxn to live in their authentic sexual identities through movement and affirming mediation. Other titles she currently wears are wife, mom of three, dancer, creator, spiritual thug, and entrepreneur.
BrownTown shares virtual space with Christina to discuss sex and body positivity. She opens up to BrownTown as they unpack power, social norms, and patriarchy regarding we construct, present, and navigate sex and our own bodies.
Christina (AKA "C-Dub") centers her lived experience as well as her work co-creating Womxnvibe into the conversation as a site of her own learning. She explains what power meant to her in the past and how she empowers womxn now through dance, in her work as an electrolysis, and her everyday life. BrownTown harps on the importance of empowerment and community-building in different spaces, likening that to living out an abolitionist framework of trust and accountability.
As Christina tells her story, the gang unpacks gender roles and binaries in and outside of the bedroom, communication in relationships, body positivity (or lack thereof) in the fitness/wellness industry, capitalism and the diet industrial complex, and normalizing womxn's pleasure.
Sex and body positivity empowers us and rejects cis/het patriarchy, encouraging us to feel, explore, and be in community with one another. We live this out (and struggle through it) in our personal lives, our work, our art, our relationships, and even (slowly) our institutions.
