Listen up gentle people, here is a broadcast to be aware of. There is no such thing as a slut. Neither in terms of clothing, nor in people, and especially not women. ‘’Slut is an attitude projected onto girls and women by a sexist society that is alarmed when they take control and make their own decisions’’. If looked up in a modern dictionary, the there entrenched definition would be a ‘woman who has many causal sex partners’, as opposed to the more date ‘a woman with low standards of cleanliness’. Thats right, a slut was merely someone who was a little too lazy to live in an organised environment, but somehow that turned into discriminating against girls for enjoying sex however much and with whoever they choose. Slut is amongst the many words that are used to base an entire girl’s character off of a single act, one for which most guys would be idolised for. A guy who frequently engages in sex or is in a relationship is often seem to be less defined by it, more noticeable due to their participation in sports or for what profession they do, whereas women are taught that their number one goal in life remains to score themselves a man, preferably ‘The One’ or ‘Mr Right’. A woman who is not in a relationship is always assumed to be looking for one or if not it must be cause they’re either lesbian or they’re crazy. The borderline is, relationships are something you should have whenever, and only then, you are ready. Although society might be trying to sell you the idea of a ‘package deal’, preparing you for your future partner and selling you all kinds of stuff that would let you find them faster or keep them interested, it’s important to remember that there is no rush and there is no need. If you are not in one right now its most likely because you either don’t want to be, or cause you haven't found anyone quite deserving of your awesomeness yet. And whether or if it will happen is completely up to you, much like the way you life your life. For someone who enjoys having sex, and a lot of it (maybe with different people), that’s great, amazing, fantastic; it doesn't have to mean that they are selling themselves or are cheap. Just as choosing to wait is a personal preference and not something forced onto you by a higher power. Live and let live.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

2164

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
