It’s a known and accepted fact that single men sleep around. Women are typically uncertain to behave in this same fashion due to the irrational fear of acting like a “slut” or “whore.” Although there are people who still maintain these outdated beliefs, thankfully we’re crossing the bridge to a new era in which we acknowledge the double standard of slut shaming. With this said, I believe every woman could benefit from a promiscuous phase for these six reasons…
1. Your body = your decision.
We’re taught to view sex as immoral and that women should be shamed if they do not adhere to these standards. However, there is no protocol for the proper time to do it and you’ll learn that the choice of who you want to sleep with and when you’re ready is entirely yours and no one else’s.
2. Learn what you like and don’t like.
If you never experiment, you won’t know what pleases you sexually. Bottom line.
3. Become skilled in bed.
The more experience you get, the more you’ll learn about what arouses your partner and especially satisfies him. When you find the person you feel passionate about, you’ll have plenty of moves to whip out of your sexual arsenal.
4. Gain confidence in your body.
We spend so much time analyzing our bodies in the mirror that we assume men will perceive us in the same manner. However, men won’t mind if you’re smaller on top than you’d like or if your thighs lack the desired gap between them. It’s imperative that you’re able to release your inhibitions naked in order to be comfortable and fully present in the moment.
5. It’s all for stories.
My funniest and most entertaining stories tend to involve sex. When you go out, you’ll meet an array of people with a range of personalities and interests. Nothing beats sitting around at 3AM with your girlfriends exchanging your best memories. You don’t want to look back when you’re married with kids and wish you lived it up more when you had the opportunity.
6. You’re equally as entitled as men.
My mother used to tell me not to be offended if a guy didn’t want anything serious because men in their early twenties are in their prime; they’re having the time of their lives going out and are not looking to settle down. So essentially us women are expected to sit on the sidelines and wait as men have all of the fun? This doesn’t seem fair. Women are equally entitled to “play the field” and sleep with whomever they choose.
