Fly Femme Feature: Anika of Black Girl Bliss

Hey, pleasure seekers! Our Fly Femme and pleasure activist Anika of Black Girl Bliss wants you to feel good, unapologetically. Black Girl Bliss is an educational platform dedicated to cultivating the spiritual, sexual, and self-care practices of Black millennial women and femmes through books, courses, and other content. Obviously we – as a curation platform for femme positive goods and services and Self-Care for the Culture – had to wrap our arms around it and never let it go.

Anika’s Pussy Prayers encourages us to “bask in pleasure daily” and provides actual “easy-to-do rituals to begin your personal journey of understanding the importance of pleasure, it’s connection to manifestation, and ways to up your #JuicyJuju so that you can enjoy #EverydayDeliciousness in your daily life.”

We stan.
