Also, I'm twenty one I've had 23 sexual partners. I've been checked for STD's twice. I'm very self-conscious about my number, because I know it is really high. But what do I say to guys when they ask my number? I know your 'number' is very arbitrary, and really shouldn't matter to anyone else, but I guess it just makes me feel like a slut sometimes. I go to school in the Bible Belt and everyone is still very conservative about sex. It isn't a taboo subject, and everyone has sex and talks about it, but having a big number for a girl is considered disgusting, and you're slut-shamed for the most part. So, what should I tell people when they ask?
What do you think is considered 'slutty' or what number is considered 'slutty'?
I hate that word, because I'm only contributing to it's use but it's all I can really think to use.
I like sex, and I love having it and I hate that women are held to a different standard than men when it comes to sex. Men are congratulated for having copious amounts of sex, while women are ostracized and outcasted by society.
