I know I’m not alone on this one…

Her name is Eveline, and she’s an independent female artist from Berlin who sent us one of her music videos and a few lines about the experiences and thoughts that informed it. She had a strong sense that there were others out there, probably in our Girls Are Awesome community, who would feel themselves reflected in her song – and we think she’s right. That’s why we’re sharing it with you all today:

“I want to share the story behind the release of my song  ‚Sexual‘”, Eveline wrote us. “It’s about ‘non sexuality‘ or being ‚disgusted about sexual intimacy‘, more personally: Me dealing with some trauma from the past… Being ashamed of not saying ‚no’ too many times when someone wanted to become intimate, processing and reflecting on the role I thought I needed to fulfill as woman in society and so on. I know I’m not alone on this one.”

Eveline shares more about her experience with sexuality and non-sexuality on her Instagram, writing that she finished the lyrics for ‚Sexual‘ in January:

Back then I didn’t I quite know if I’m actually bold enough to ever publicly release them. But I had this sound vision in my mind and while putting the pieces together into an arrangement it kind of felt like I could fight my anger and grief about the moments I was being sexualised or brought into situations of sexual expectations against my will with singing (nearly shouting) these lyrics into the microphone.

In a special live performance of ‚Sexual‘, Eveline also discusses the personal meaning behind the song:

We think the video is a visual feast (pun intended!) – but the message it brings with it is pretty timely as well. “Sexual education is so fucking important!” Eveline writes on her Instagram. “And sexual self-determination also means the freedom to choose not have sex at all.”

Let’s normalize these conversations and support everyone’s sexual self-expression, however that manifests for them.
