All right, let’s get this session of Whore School underway! Today’s topic: Whore Slut vs Innocent Virgin.

Whore School by Harper 8006017259 Whore Slut MoralsAt the heart of our society’s relationship with sex lies a dichotomy. Most of our societal and cultural structures can be broken down into binary pairs; adult/child, male/female, productive/unproductive… so it makes sense that we’d also break our moral systems around sexual activity down into similar binary pair ideas. We’ve got the Whore Slut on one side, and the Innocent Virgin on the other, with no moral or ethical middle ground in between. There’s a common saying “A Lady in the streets and a Whore in the sheets”, which encompasses the impossible standards for women in particular, but really, for all of us.

In many ways, here in the United States we have been shaped by our Puritan ancestors: they were very anti – Whore Slut.

I could write you an epic on exactly how and why Puritanical thought about sex and sin has not done any of us any favors, but that would be boring and full of cussing, so let’s skip it. Instead, I’ll simply point out that the very duality of Whore Slut versus Innocent Virgin arises from the notion that sex for pleasure is a sin, and therefore dirty, and therefore to be avoided, which comes directly from Puritan ideals. I’d like to challenge you, dear readers, to re-think the morality of sex for yourselves, instead of relying upon 300 year old dogmatic thoughts about sex and sin.

Let’s re-imagine a set of morals for Whore Sluts that doesn’t rely on shame or fear of punishment by a “Righteous God.”

Any set of morals arises from the answers to basic questions about the rightness of actions, thoughts, and words. So, leave aside the hammer of the looming Angry God Who Hates, and answer these questions:

  1. What is the purpose of sex?
  2. With whom may you have sex?
  3. What are the circumstances that lead to a sex act becoming off limits?

I have my own answers for these questions, but I want you, my sweet Whore Sluts in training, to come up with your own answers.

The answers to those three questions form the basis for a code of morality around sex and sexuality that is, in my opinion, healthier than the borrowed dichotomy of the Puritans. Try to answer these questions for yourself, without putting limits on what other people can and cannot do. Your own personal moral code does not ~have~ to be a moral code for a whole society, and it doesn’t have to stand up to the sexual habits of everyone else around you. You’re not a High Priest trying to reign in horny sheep herders and lonely housewives, you’re just one person working out a moral code for your own exploration into being a Whore Slut.

Kindly leave a comment with your answers to the three morality questions for Whore Sluts.

Next week we’ll have a discussion about the artificial construct of ‘Virginity’, and exactly what Sacred Sex is and means for you. This concludes this session of Whore School for Whore Sluts and (not so) Innocent Virgins.
