Claiming ownership of your sexuality can be a powerful tool. In her short essay entitled “The Feminist Mystique,” published in Playboy’s March/April issue, actress Scarlett Byrne explores the loaded potency of posing naked, particularly when you’re an autonomous feminist. Making such a controversial yet conscious decision is about freedom of expression. To quote Byrne, “It’s about equality. It’s about liberation.”
In this behind-the-scenes video of her Playboy shoot, Byrne proves you can project sensuality and substance in equal measures.
