This scene gave me the layer of Naledi's body issues I wanted to see in the book. A thick hun who's in her shell and is SLOWLY coming out because her body is being embraced and loved by her lover. Loved the delivery its very RELATABLE. #TheWifeShowmax 👏 💕 pic.twitter.com/OE8rHA9ENs

Women in the situation feel they are not enough and worthy to be loved, this making it hard for them to fully partake during intimacy, as their insecurites regarding their body kick in the minute their partners undress and take a glance at their body.
