Serena Williams has just released a daring new video in which the 37-year-old tennis phenom goes topless — for an extremely good cause.
In the video posted on Saturday, bare-chested Williams covers her breasts with her hands while singing a slow, sultry rendition of The Divinyls’ 1990 hit “I Touch Myself” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
For #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself”!

The goal of the video, writes Williams in an Instagram post, is to remind women to self-check themselves regularly.
“Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world,” writes Williams. “Early detection is key — it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that.”
