When people ask me why I hula hoop in booty shorts/revealing clothing. #1 it’s comfortable #2 why the fuck not #3 the hoop actually grips better on bare skin #4 because wearing revealing clothing does not = “look at me I need attention” or “I want you to sexualize me.” It means I’m just having a good time not even having the thought that people care that much about my body and clothes.
