I am so fucking DEPRIVED!

I’m not one to swear, but this feeling of deprivation is too strong.
I am deprived of friendship, intimate relationships, sexual connection… I am also deprived of emotional connection AND sharing my feelings/thoughts with someone else.

I’m done with the feeling of being alone and having my desires and basic needs being invalidated. I want to be seen, acknowledged and heard!

And I’m sure, You want those things too.
Then allow me to introduce to you: Deprived Media!


Deprived Media is an online platform where you and I and other Deprived artists creatively share personal, artistic narratives based on topics including:

gender identity in relation to social constructs,

body as a form, and a tool used for expression,

and the journey of accepting sexuality, or the (lack of) sexual nature of humankind.

Welcome to my world!

Step into my shoes and see my life as a ciswoman in her early 20s growing up in a male dominated society that sexualizes women, AND there’s so much more than that! Here’s my story.
