I’m not inciting hate, discriminating, exploiting, bullying, or disrespecting anyone. This is a feminist piece using the word SLUT to make a point. What I’m doing is addressing an issue that has become all too taboo; why is sex wrong? Why is talking about sex wrong? Why can’t we face our need for contact and connection head on?
I was out for drinks with one of my girls telling her about an old flame, no fling, well, a guy I used to date, fine, sleep with, who recently texted out of the blue and asked to go for coffee.
As I was describing who this guy was I was trying to figure out what category he belonged in. Fling or flame? He definitely wasn’t a boyfriend. Then I thought to myself; what’s the difference? Is there a difference between a fling and a flame?
