Slutty Gang Bang!!!!

1 07 2009

Ha! Did the headline catch you? I seriously am perusing the web this morning, and I wanted to bring you two blogs written by maybe one of my newest favorite authors in the blogosphere, not necessarily for her writing style, but for her topics. Her name is Chantelle Austin, and her blog is all about sex, sexuality, love, and relationships… from the point of view of someone who has experienced enough to be able to write intelligently about the topics.

The first piece came via the @sexgenderbody Twitter feed: “Is being a slut a bad thing?”

We’re programmed to believe that being promiscuous, or a slut is a bad thing and what is that really? It’s a judgment, damn it! The one thing I pride myself on NOT doing. Coming from someone who works hard to accept others as they are, I was judging myself! I had come to the conclusion that I wasn’t a slut because I was selective about whom I slept with but what does that say about people who aren’t selective? And is that really “wrong”?…

And why does being a slut have to be a bad thing? Are they not just experiencing all that sex and life has to offer? Some people love chocolate, and they’ll eat any sort of chocolate they come across, does that make them a chocolate slut? Hell yes, but is that a bad thing? No! So why is it that some people get labelled as a slut and the connotation is that it’s a bad thing, almost an insult to be called one?

I mean, I was kind of like, “OK, that’s not such a bad point, but it’s one I’ve heard before, and how is this special,” until I delved further and read a previous column she had written that spurred this particular piece of work: “Am I a Slut If I Participate in a Gang Bang?”

I might be a swinger and engage in sex with people other than my husband but that doesn’t mean I don’t have standards, self respect or professionalism. And it’s no excuse for others to treat me with any less respect or manners either so I’ll let them know so…

All behaviours of a self respecting woman in my book.

I have recently been criticized for some of my own personal behaviors, and, perhaps they would cause some hackles to rise, but, honestly, I have no problems with them. No guilt — mostly — and no worries — mostly. Sure, I’ve messed up and made poor decisions, and sometimes my decisions have been overly tainted by alcohol and not by my own libido…

…but it was refreshing to hear a straight woman thinking the same thing I am, and feel empowered by her choices rather than demeaned.
