I’ll be the first to admit that I am a slut, a professional slut in some cases. I embrace my sexuality as a core component of who I am, and I allow myself to explore connection to other human beings through the nexus of sexuality. And since I don’t hide my sexual self, much of society considers me a slut.
The difference, to me, is that I don’t accept the term slut as defaulting to a negative or pejorative. I think it is perfectly acceptable for a woman to be a slut and to enjoy being a slut. And just as I believe prostitutes can and should reclaim the word whore, so, too, do I believe that sexually adventurous women should reclaim the word slut.
Today’s slut is responsible, educated, and confident; she’s sexually adventuresome and won’t live by society’s random constraints on her personal sexual behavior. There is a skill set you need to have for those you’d serve – outwardly visible skills if you will; skills you need to be able to demonstrate your sluttiness to others around you, in particular those who you’re intent upon engaging in some act of sex.
