Coming from a dance background, Slusher struggled with insecurities such as not looking perfect all the time which was getting too much in her head during intimate moments. At the end of the session, she realized her insecurity was what was stopping her from feeling confident in the bedroom.

On the other hand, Barrera grew up as a muscular athlete in a conservative society where the word “sex” wasn’t OK and where depictions of lesbianism were deemed “gross.” The shame she felt for her sexual orientation caused her to freeze her body and contributed to pain during penetration.
