Why is it still not okay to be a slut?

Or is it?

I find myself asking this question nowadays as i am almost desperately seeking a mate for life.  Now don’t get me wrong here, I haven’t gone third wave feminist at all.  But i do want to ask this question, “Does it really matter how many sexual partners a woman had before she met you?”

Women have been speaking out about this for years now.  One of the things they want to change is society’s view of the promiscuous woman.  The social idea that women who have multiple sex partners are somehow not as good, or less of a woman if they have had more then one or two sex partners since they reached the age of consent.

The main reason women want this to change is because many of them feel they aren’t getting the good men because of their sexual histories.  Or they are viewed by the people in their towns and cities as the town ride or slut.

Now i do feel its somewhat hypocritical to shame a woman for have 10 sexual partners, and yet gay and straight men can run around have upwards of 20 partners and no one bats an eye, or even better yet they are congratulated on their number of conquests.  Now in the gay community you would think some guy that’s had a number of sex partners would be a red flag, yet it still isn’t in all truth.

I have had multiple sex partners over the years and i have to admit there are times i wish i hadn’t.  I do feel badly for the women who get labelled as a slut.  Maybe it’s because I am looking for a truly good woman now.  Not some perfect virgin female.
