Never could understand slut-shaming.
Till now I find it an awesome, highly complimentary word and if I weren't actively participating in a specifically monogamous partnership, I probably would have a tramp stamp with the perfectly calligraphed word Slut printed across my lower back. After all if all the parties involved are in the know, what's wrong with a gorgeous singleton making the rounds expressing love and desire in the best way he or she knows how?
|Forget about even suggesting orgies to them!|
But that's me. Lately, I find I'm in a tragically dwindling minority when it comes to sexual liberation.
From Soho to No Ho.
Whereas several years in the past, I used to have party gals like Piratin Patty and Fabulous Felix around who had little to no shame when it came to scandalously taboo topics - and even less when it came to expressing themselves, these days I keep bumping into straight-laced Miz Grundys who blush at the mere mention of the word. sex. Really, and I once had dear friends who'd barter trade a quick fuck for a ripe green pomelo.
And I was the staidly conservative creature!
Not that I could ever bring up such a disreputable topic in our table talks these days! Lawd-a-mercy, what would people say!
Paul : Oh maybe you should ask him out.
Grundy : Gracious no! How could I?
Paul : Just ask him out.
Grundy : But I can't.
Paul : You want me to do it for you? I'm sure he's up for a one-nighter too.
Grundy : Oh wow. Don't say it so loud.
Paul : No one's listening.
Grundy : Anyway there's no sex before marriage.
Which is all fine and good of course.
Though I still gaped a little. In this day and age? Haven't we progressed passed that yet?
Evidently folks here have gone back to the Little House on the Prairie. Our demure lil miss certainly isn't the only one though, even Diffident David has come across just a tad priggish when it comes to such salacious matters. To the people I know now, it's all about love, commitment, sharing similar interests and goals etc. Basically Mills & Boons without the scorching almost-sex on the beach. Some indecently shocking hand-holding at the very most.
The doe-eyed romantic in me loves all that of course but there's also a pragmatic sexual beast in me. I mean, let's scratch all that, doesn't anyone just want a quick hard fuck anymore? There's a time for chaste hand-holding with momentary pecks on the lip but there are moments when there's the need for a no-holds-barred, no strings-attached orgy, no?
Seriously, when did we exchange Samantha Jones for Jane the Virgin?
