Someone who celebrates the way she is without trying to confirm to the standard created by others. A phenomenal woman celebrates her sexuality without any inhibition. She is mysterious and no one can know her mystery. Most importantly, she never bows her head to anybody and stands erect in her life and never allows anyone to subjugate her. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
