Her latest project, a zine of sexts, poems, and nude photos taken on her own phone, would make it seem like she applies this mantra to all areas of her life, but Soda says she's always been wary of sharing that kind of suggestive content. "I don’t send nude photographs to anyone because I’m afraid they will get leaked or that someone will have some kind of power over me. I’d never want to feel that way." "I think that everyone takes the occasional nude. My thing is that I never intend to send them to anyone," she says, adding that "actually, half the time I just delete them."
