When newspaper Het Parool, as the first medium to publish an interview with me about my seriesĀ Mannen met potentie* (Men With Potential), puts an online version of the article on their FB page, Parool followers go insane. (scroll all the way down to find the link to the actual FB post)

Sex or no sex, readers seem to know for sure: I’m a cheap slut and I’m only after attention. Also, my photos are “simple snapshots” and “who do I think I am anyway, saying this is art” (which I haven’t, but that aside). Repliers predict my future too: “I will never find love and will end up as a lonely old cat lady with rattling ovaries”.

Some of the comments are meant to sympathise with my parents. They are sorry for them that I confront them with my sexual whereabouts and mental issues, “no parent should ever have to deal with a daughter like me”.

Feel invited to find out in detail how Facebook using- and Parool following Dutch people feel about women showing- and speaking openly about intimacy.

*Mannen met potentie is a series of 20 self portraits showing my search for a guy on Tinder while I was heartbroken after another failed attempt to grow into a romantic relationship. I was sad, confused and above all convinced that I was never going to find love. Unless I would give it one last try on a dating app.
