Stop Being a Slut. Now Shut Up and Show Some Skin!

Being a female is confusing at best. We are constantly confronted with contradicting messages. We're scrutinized and shamed if we aren't "pure", while at the same time we're met daily with images of women as sexual objects and told that is our position in society. If we perceive our bodies as lovely and sacred, we're targeted as being "prude" or "uptight". If we openly express our sexual side, we're "sluts" or "easy". The woman we see most often is the one who is powerful because she is sexy, so it is no wonder that women have translated this into being sexual for the purpose of gaining a voice. With so much shame being put on women, it's no surprise that more don't seek treatment for sex addiction. As a result, we are not represented in research or specialized care initiatives.
