The Importance of Being A Slut

No one likes being called a slut, unless the one who accords us this title is that special person we have amorously awarded permission to do to us as they please. It is a label associated with the very essence of unholiness: the slut is the person who shows no restrain to the activity of sex. Female humans are particularly susceptible to being tagged this label, a tag often handed to them with tonal clarity pointing to the disgrace it is to become worthy of such a label.

Yet there are valuable insights to be gained from the slut. Those who occupy the space of the sexually privileged understand the lessons of the slut all too well: it never occurs to this lucky bunch to see their sexuality as an essence to be restrained. They stand with the slut in their position to question what it means to restrain ones sexual quality.

Over the course of history, a lot has arisen to highlight the impurity of sex. Christianity, a powerful societal institution, for example, points out that lust, the sexual longing for another person, in the words of Saint Augustine, “intrudes where it is not needed and tempts the heart of faithful and holy people with its untimely and even wicked desire”, admonishing us, as holy people, to do away with this evil the best we can. Of course the problems begin to arise not when we had absorb these teachings, usually during impressionable moments of childhood, they arise at the dawn of adulthood, when we have almost forgotten that we are under the sway of the teachings.

Thoughts of sex awaken feelings of disgust and shame, yet pulls us to give ourselves into what it demands. The person who demystifies our shame around the matter gains our devotion becoming the ‘special’ person destined for us. The slut knows the foolishness inherent in this mode of operation. The slut starts off from this premise when it comes to sex: it is a free gift of nature, it rests within one’s prerogative to do as one pleases with the gifts accorded to us by nature. The slut throws off the opinion of the crowd. The slut is alive to the idea that anyone has a chance at being special, and is therefore open to fully exploring each human encounter that picks at a certain kind of interest. Our place in relation to the slut is to, in response to admiring such amorous freedom, develop beyond the borders of restrictions that trap us; break free from the shackles that keeps us from exploring and discovering ourselves through the lives of others. Those who slut shame may lie in the territory of the majority, but it is only because we are forever blind to the total reality of their lives. A window into the nature of their real lives would reveal to us that being a slut is more common than the facade of societal disposition allows us to see. Those who live through truth stay in the minority. Our place is with this small crowd.

Enjoy!

You are Awesome.
