"There’s this effort to try to shame a woman’s sexiness by pulling a cover over it, but I’m a woman who loves skin. I love skin on me, I love skin on girls, I love skin on guys," she declares in the November issue. "If you’re confident enough to show off your body, you should. Be confident. It can be difficult to get yourself to focus on you all the time, especially when you’re trying to transition into who you really are, but I’m not going to change for anybody else. I love staying true to me."
The former Disney star also opens up about sharing sexy pics on social media, despite comments from her critics. "I’m not fed up with social media. I understand it, but people like to comment on how my image is too edgy, that I’m too edgy, and on how they wish I looked," she explains. "It’s a lot of, 'Do this, don’t do that.' To them I say, 'F**k off.'"
Just a few days prior to her posing in boyfriend Tyler Posey's underwear and the release of her Playboy pics, Thorne opened up to ET about why she finds it important to express herself on social media. "I'm, like, an open book," she said. "But that's what I think that my fans enjoy about me the most, is that they feel like they really know me. And they do, they really f**king know me."
As for whether she's ever crossed the line with her posts, Thorne quipped, "I guess I haven't learned the line of 'too far' yet, because I always do pooping snaps. People always get after me about my pooping snaps. You know what I tell them? ...I don't give a f**k!"
