Who You Callin' a SLUT!?

Any woman in power or woman who has thumbed her nose at convention has probably been called a SLUT. Been there, done that, used to hate it, and now I just laugh my ass off. 

As if there is something wrong with a sexually active woman? Ha, and people lament the plight of women in the Middle East (sarcasm intended). 

I've been thinking about this "slut" issue for quite a while now, ever since I read the book "Loose Girl: A Tale of Promiscuity". I've been meaning to read the book  "Slut! Growing Up Female With a Bad Reputation" for a while now and I have just gotten around to recently ordering it.  I look forward to hearing the personal stories in the book as well as stories of any woman with big enough ovaries to leave a comment here. Confess, repent, let it all out, sista!

So I'd like to take a little stroll down memory lane and examine this "slut" issue and how it has played out in my life-the good, the scandalous, and the ugly. I would have to honestly say that it has had a significant impact on my life. I've prepared a couple of posts that I'll be uploading over the next couple of days about my personal experiences. In the meantime, I want to pose the following questions:
  • Have you ever been called a slut? 
  • Who is your favorite woman who has expressed absolute lack of remorse regarding being promiscuous? 
  • Are you a slut-say it loud and say it proud?
Stay tuned!

Being called a "slut" is dominant culture's way of controlling a woman's sexuality. If society allowed women to explore their sexuality as freely as men, more women would know how lousy most men are in bed. Experience would give them a better barometer to compare. Men attempt to keep women down so that their own flaws aren't highlighted as they deserve to be.

Amen, sista!

Interestingly, I myself have only been with 1 woman who I'd consider excellent in bed. Most women that "think" they are good in bed are actually only average or good at best. It's extremely rare to find a woman who's excellent in bed.

I'm sure that most women would have a similar story to tell-most of the men who they have slept with are horrible lovers.
