Have you ever heard of a finsta before? Before you ask, no, it’s not a new Starbucks drink.
Instead, we’re talking about the private Instagram accounts people make for their closest friends’ eyes only: finstas aka “fake” + “insta.”
Finstas have been a popular trend for a while now, and they only illuminate the fact that people desperately want an online space where they can freely and safely post whatever they want. And that includes nudes, semi-nudes, and everything in between!
It’s a new world that we’re living in now, and in this world, women want a safe space where they can show off their confidence and showcase their bodies for their own pleasure. So whether they’re in a bikini, a turtleneck, or completely naked, it’s their right to display as much or as little skin as they’d like without judgment, sexualization, or all the negative effects that the male gaze brings.
And you know what else? In the 21st century, women shouldn’t have to resolve to use a finsta as their platform of choice for self-expression. Instead, we should be able to exert our ownership over our bodies without it being seen as controversial.
Posting a photo that makes you feel and look your best to yourself, whether or not you’re showing skin, should be up to you. But frankly, we’re tired of waiting for the rest of the world to catch up with this movement, so that’s why we created a solution ourselves.
The bad news is that social media and our society probably won’t be embracing the new nudity and age of self-expression anytime soon. But the good news is that you can ditch your finsta for Perzik, our nude social network platform that was made for body-positive enthusiasts like you!
On our platform, you can participate on your own terms and showcase your bare confidence according to your rules. You can share the photos that you want, customize your feed to your liking, and find other members of our bold community to connect with. So, are you ready to join us in the new world? Get started here.
