    So . . . Did No One in these comments talking about how "YA and teens shouldn't be sexualized" lose their virginity as a teenager?

    She clearly states: The point of this video is things that can arouse you can be strange, but they still do and you shouldn't be ashamed of it. We shouldn't shame her for feeling any way she feels. Grow up ppl. Just cause you're not comfortable with your sexual journey and sexuality doesn't mean others shouldn't be!

    I thought you were so honest and raw about very intimate topics! I really enjoyed and being naive was surprised at the comments section – I see where people are coming from- but also these are books and fantasies- Its scenarios of different dynamics that Hannah is referring to not fetishisation -thanks for being so honest and love your vids !

    I just think that perhaps this was a poorly titled video and your handling of this topic in a flippant/jokey way was not the right pathway. I can see that you were uncomfortable during this video at times which is telling. I'm not sure if you should keep this video up because a) so many people have advised their offence and uncomfortableness in nice and constructive ways and it feels like your not pulling it down out of standing up to the ones who were nasty, which is only a punishment to the people who were respectful in their criticism b) to be honest it wasn't a great video from an objective standpoint, sorry 🙁 you do so much better content.

    I feel like the comments on this video have made my realize how many people’s strong opinions Hannah has to deal with every time she shares her opinion. The amount of hate and trying to control a person is INSANE. I didn’t realize what a difficult job she has. I felt that this video had no issues at all. It was completely innocent and playful. To say we can’t read YA as adults is absurd. You’re not fetishizing minors. When you read a YA book, it takes you back to the mindset of when you were that age. So in your mind you are viewing the characters as if they are the same age.

    Most of those books are probably not for me, but whatever works for you is fine. And shame on those commenters criticizing you for your fantasies / turn-ons.

    literature and sexual fantasy both have imagination in common. I am surprised Hannah's comments with regards to the YA books are taken so literally. as the MLM comments I dont know enough to consider them and have to take the lead from thoes who do. However, there seem to be lots of comments insinuating , or outright claiming that she's stating she is attracted to children. As a few comments have said reading is an immersive experience, we don't tend to read books in a literal sense but become fully immersed in the world , suspending disbelief and recontextualization the books so we can better imagine our selves in that world.

    I wonder how many people have found the GOT book arousing due to their highly sexual nature, regardless of the fact characters such as Daenerys are children , Dany in particular is 13 in the first book and GRR Martin sexualises her extraordinarily, in my opinion way beyond the point of actual plot development. Should those books be removed from print? How about Carrie or IT? Back when Twilight came out there was a army of middle age women lusting over Jacob and Edward, was that wrong or escapism and fantasy? It seems to me lots of people are uncomfortable with the idea that literature aimed at a YA audience could be viewed as sexual. I was a massively horny YA and was disappointed when my books lacked sexual tension. If books are written with suggestive slant do we grow out of finding that attractive even if we age and the characters don't? In the same way there are lots of people who have had sexy dreams over bugs bunny or whose first crush was simba from the lion king, sexual fantasy and or arousal Isn't always about the literal but the tension , the atmosphere, the idea of something, or just the straight up weirdness of the human body. To say Hannah should remove this video because a YA book made her horny seems to be a massive oversimplification of sexuality. Just look at p*rn where straight women have Lesbian Fantasies or some people fantasies about R*pe desire and literal representation are not always compatible

    I…get where your coming from, kinda? Like I genuinely get having mixed signals between genitalia and our Brains but I feel like you should have put more emphasis on that you as a person don’t condone the actions in the video. I just feel like this could have been handled better. You should probably delete the video

    Thank you for addressing the concerns. I agree with your response. As someone who reads super consistently I can agree that when you read a book (fiction) it’s meant to immerse you and depending on the immersion level you either feel like you ARE the characters/living the book with them, or that you kind of see it from afar. A big part of reading books is to get different perspectives, live different lives, explore separate stories, step into someone else’s shoes. When I read YA in the back of my head I’m still an adult, but depending on the immersion level and the goal for reading (enjoyment or for review/critically) I feel like I’m back in high school. I really don’t think this is as big of a deal as everyone is saying it is. If you have p*do tendencies and look for child/young teen sexual scenes specifically to get off that’s different. But books are meant to immerse us and allow us to escape to a different life and time. I dunno.

    And on the MLM situation. I do think fetishization is a problem. We know MLM has been fetishized big time specifically by women. If your being turned on stems specifically from it being two dudes getting it on, that’s not cool in any way and should be addressed. But if you’re turned on by a MLM sexual scene but are equally enjoying the non sexual relationship that the characters have, and enjoy reading about them/care about the characters in a non sexual way this is a non-issue to me. Ask yourself “what is the reason for my being turned on by this? Is it specifically because it’s two men being together?” If not, then it should be fine. But maybe that’s just my bisexual brain saying “everyone can be turned on by everyone and it’s fine”. I’ve read a couple of MLM books and been turned on by some scenes, but I wasn’t reading specifically because I was turned on by MLM relationships. I was turned on because a sexual thing that turns me on occured, but I also was enjoying the storyline/plot/characters. No fetishization included. Equally, I wouldn’t be upset if a dude reading a wlw book said he got turned on IF he wasn’t fetishizing but was into the entirety of the characters and whatnot.

    Can’t speak on Girl, Woman, Other as I haven’t read it. But you can still be turned on by a sexual scene and be disgusted by abuse all in the same book.

    I do think the age restriction is good, and talking about these issues in the beginning of the video had you known they would’ve been interpreted this way would’ve been good but you can’t tell the future.

    Ironically I got v. slightly turned on by hearing (and seeing) Ms Witton talking about what turns her on. Does Ms Witton get turned on by telling complete strangers (and they don't come stranger than yours truly) about what turns her on I wonder? In any event, I don't get the point of erotic literature in these days of instant gratification, and have only resorted to it when there is no porn to hand.

    I don’t know what’s worst, fetishisation of not only teenage characters but also mlm man of color… and the book is absolutely NOT SEXUAL in any way (I’m talking about Ari and Dante)

    Some of suggested readings are akin to swimming in the DEEP end of the pool, supposing proverbially speaking. Some of the others like very small scale on the range of fantasy. (sort of chauceresque, or Baudelairian). My own were/are so damn elaborate they would go on for hours. I would be fir hours at it as a child. Actually interfered a lit with the real world side. But I am set fir sex for life (meaning I can PLEASURE you from that ridiculiysly, insanely iniorrinate preoccupation I had with fantasy! Its similar to any other kind of project, planning o, e.g., a general planning a Champaign or a football coach strategizing infinite variations of plays. And you need flexibility because, as you know, one woman's trash is another's treasure!

    9:12 strangely enough, this is the "relationship" with a lot of straight porn vids. It's like "step-sister and brother" or "step-mom and son" and so forth. It's disgusting.

    When the old night reclined to rest from the practice of repeating the blackness, in preparation for the arrival of the birth of a new dawn,
    The old man's steps were like a tortoise heading up.
    The old man stood looking at the blind lamp،Then he nodded, saying: I see you, lamp, have lost your sight
    and such a night has receded, which is about to withdraw from this worldly plate..you are like the lips of a stupid gun that never a pronounce a single shot in the ear of battle.
    A bird cuts the thread of meditation for the old man
    After he climbed the pine tree that shaded the house's eye, which is its only window.
    A lukewarm smile slowly appears on the old man's lips, as dawn advances with the steps of a return from an old travel،the bird joins, leaving the pine branch, with swarms of migrating birds, leaving the tree repeating the tales of shadows for the old woman when the sun sees and sees existence with an eye of pure light.

    Hi, I've seen the concerns about my latest video. Here's my response. Thanks for reading.

    MLM fetishisation – thank you for raising this, whilst obviously this wasn't intended after learning more about the fetishisation/sexualisation of gay men, especially by straight women, I'm really sorry about this. From my (limited) understanding, fetishisation is when you're only interested in one aspect of someone's identity (in this case, the sex/romance lives of gay men) and not interested in them as whole human beings or fighting against their oppression. Whilst I'm not perfect (no-one is btw!) and will continue to make mistakes and learn from them, I am committed to using my platform and privilege to support the LGBTQ+ community (from representation in books to sex education and everything inbetween). I could have been more aware of this when picking the titles for this video and I'm sorry that I wasn't, will always strive to do better in the future.

    YA books/teenage characters – I rewatched the video with special attention to what I said about the 4 YA books I mentioned. With the exception of Ari & Dante (which in the video I specifically say it didn't make me horny but made it on the list because of the emotional intensity), all the books contain either sex scenes, heavy flirting or sexually suggestive interactions. Books have the power to really transcend you into the characters' lives, what they are thinking and feeling. And a good book makes you feel those things too. As a reader, I don't feel like I responded inappropriately to any of these books. As a YouTuber, I'm not coming into a minors-only space with this video, the vast majority of my audience (96.5%) are over 18 years old, however, to be safe I'm going to age-restrict the video so that no minors who are looking for videos about some of their favourite books find this video.

    "I need some hot lesbian books on my list, please recommend me" – this was a poorly phrased "joke" that didn't land well. However, I stand by the sentiment that I would love to read more WLW books as part of my on-going commitment to diversify my reading. And thanks to the people who left lots of great recommendations in the comments!

    Deleted comments – I only saw the comments this morning, hours after ones claiming I'd been deleting them. I was offline/asleep so I definitely wasn't. YouTube sometimes automatically picks up "inappropriate" comments and hides them.

    The video was about how what turns us on isn't necessarily what we want IRL and how we can feel a lot of shame because of this. This was mentioned at the beginning and throughout the video. I would recommend listening to the podcast episode with Dr Lori Beth Bisbey that I talked about in the video all about sexual fantasies and shame.

    After having a look through books on my shelf/books I've read, it turns out most of the LGBTQ+ fiction/characters come from YA books. I think YA can be so great for representation and tackling social justice narratives and also, it's a genre that I enjoy. I've definitely read less adult fiction with the same amount of representation, but I'm always open to recommendations!

    So to be clear, the video is staying up but it'll be age-restricted. I'll leave this statement as a pinned comment (if word count allows) under the video and put it in the video description. I’ve changed the thumbnail of the video to avoid people jumping to conclusions before watching and I'm also going to delete my tweets promoting the video to avoid the video being shared further without the context of this statement.

    Thanks for reading, I appreciate your time. Hannah x
