Denise Bidot is one undeniably sexy woman. The 31-year-old curvy Puerto Rican and Middle Eastern plus-size model and body-positive activist has always been open about why it’s important to love yourself and how to embrace bodies of any size, but today she’s tackling yet another subject near and dear to my heart: How to feel sexy.
The Latina recently spoke with Cosmopolitan about her sexual experience and what embracing your sexual power really looks like in 2018. Beyond that, she had quite a few things to say about the importance of good sex, (“It took me a while to get there but now I know”) and being raised to believe that sex was for marriage, (“I don’t even remember ever having the conversation with my mom”). But most of all, she talked about feeling “sexy all the time.” Taking a cue from the devoted mom and badass career woman, here are five lessons we learned from Denise Bidot on how to embrace your body, kick insecurities out of the bedroom, and be sexy all the time too.
1. Feeling sexy is being who you are.

“I feel sexy all the time. I feel like sexiness is in my blood. I can be sexy and feel sexy when I’m in full glam hair and makeup for a shoot. I can also feel really sexy when I’m in sweats and no makeup with my daughter. So, I think sexy is who you are. Sexy is an internal thing, Latina woman, you know? I feel sexy all the time. It’s just my truth.”
