DREAM WIFE LMO MANIFESTO
Our track Let’s Make out is a lighthearted celebration of sexuality. Women are and have a right to be sexual beings. There is no shame in that.
Making out and taking control is an empowering thing for women to EMBRACE AND CELEBRATE.
Whoever you want to make out with is great; your partner, a cute boy, a cute girl a cute non-binary person, your best friend.
It is very important to remember; making out with someone DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO HAVE SEX WITH THEM.
Have fun, look after each other and for fucks sake stop slut shaming people.
Us Wives see LMO as being empowering to women and flipping the script on outdated expectations put upon female identifying people.
We want to change people’s minds about just what a woman is, just what a women can do, and just what a woman can be.
