Whatever Slut … why I can’t hate on the mind behind Slutever.com

So how does a woman come to terms with her sexuality and escape the wrath of being labeled a ‘slut?’ By endorsing it of course….

Upon initial review, I laughed this site off as another honest account of one young girl’s (Karley Sciortino) weave through the maze that is being single. I often write along similar lines, sharing outlandish stories of horrible (but the funny kind of horrible) dating and sex tales, with details changed just enough to as to avoid the lawsuits and awkward “was that guy … ME?!” phone calls.

It was the title that snagged my attention … Slutever(.com). It was cheeky … and I do like cheeky. However, it begs the question of linguistic relativity, in terms of one’s definition of slut and how that negatively affects their opinion of said slut at hand. My nerdy and sometimes hostile mind delved into the stigmas that sexually liberal women get negatively caste as “Sluts” and “Whores” in everyone else’s eye. I thought to myself, how could this site just accept the title and not only embrace it, but exist under it’s moniker? Then it hit me … this is exactly what we need to be doing. Enough with dissecting supposedly sexualized semantics like “salesman” and “manpower”, and instead take words like ‘slut’, that have shattered women everywhere, and embrace them as our own, thus deflating the powerful impact they once carried.

Karley is in the sex industry, raking in a living via her dominatrix clients and Slutever.com. Her content ranges from personal accounts as a dominatrix to interviews with sex industry professionals. You can tell from her writing she is smart and savvy, and as sexually educated as she is liberated.

I doubt this site is a reflection of society’s permissiveness in allowing this content to be public. Karley is merely taking advantage of the easy access to soap boxes, provided by the internet. This is merely a reflection of general opinion morphing in response to the content that is now publicly accessible thanks to social media and the internet in general.

Generations have redefined language throughout history. The idea of a slut has gone from shunned to arguably revered, thanks to sites like Slutever. At it’s roots, this site is merely an overshare from a horny gal in the sex industry, but the ripple effects of the site’s concept play a role in reshaping macro views of sexually liberal women. The adoption and subsequent redefinition of these kinds of oppressive terms completely negate their menacing factor. In short, go ahead and call me a slut. I’m okay with it.
