02/28/13 • The Ethical Slut: Exercise (Why Sluthood? Why not?)

February 28, 2013 - Posted from home (Arizona)


From the book: The Ethical Slut. Exercise: Why Sluthood? Why Not?

"Write a list of every reason you can think of that any person anywhere might want to be a slut... Which of these tell you what kind of slut you don't want to be? Which of these are your very good and valid reasons?"

I've crossed out the ones that indicate the kind of slut I don't want to be. I have bolded my very good and valid reasons.
  1. Sex is fun. Lots of sex with lots of people must be more fun.
  2. Your partner doesn't want sex as often as you do, so sex with other partners makes sense.
  3. Your partner doesn't always want the kind of (kinky) sex that you want. Others might.
  4. Same gender sex might be fun.
  5. There are a lot of bucket list items that might require other people.
  6. Threesomes and moresomes sound fun.
  7. If a lot of people have sex with me, then I matter.
  8. That new relationship feeling is amazing.
  9. It gives you something to talk about to make your primary relationship more interesting.
  10. Sex with someone else is a way to get back at someone else you've been with before or currently.
  11. Conquest. The bigger the number the bigger the ego.
  12. Playing the field to find out what you like and don't like before settling down.
  13. Attention.
  14. Lots of sex has health benefits.
  15. You don't want just one relationship.
  16. Being open and honest is better than adultery and infidelity.
