August Slut of the Month: Kelsey Chapstick

We’re pleased as spiked punch to showcase drum slut, writer babe, and heavy metal hellion Kelsey Chapstick as our August Slut of the Month. Read on to delve into her black leather lust, her post-30 celebration of ride or die friendship, and that time she did mushrooms and felt like a physical extension of the devil…

By Day: I’m the Advertising Operations Manager for the Blast Beat Network and a freelance writer with bylines on Noisey, MetalSucks, Slutist, Skulltoaster, and Invisible Oranges.

By Night: I’m a drummer in the band Quitters and a wanton horndawg for the dance floor. I go to one or two metal shows a week, but I’m more and more of a homebody these days and can just as likely be found watching some old exploitation film about witchy seduction or Satanic virgin sacrifice at home with my husband and chihuahuas.

My Vices: Historically: Men, alcohol, and cigarettes. Currently: less of the first three and more Botox to deal with the lines they gave me.

My Virtues: I co-admin a small, secret intersectional feminist group and try to be the best friend I can be to the people I love.

The Present: feels like the beginning of the greatest years of my life–I turned 30 last December and everything I heard was true. The sex is better, I take amazing care of myself now, and I’m unafraid to stand up for myself now. I will waste no more years of my life not loving myself or spending time with others who don’t do the same.

The future: is exciting! I’ve done more in the past five years than I ever anticipated accomplishing with my podunk little upbringing, so the pressure is kind of off to achieve anything monumental. I’m ready to embrace myself fully, hopefully play some cool shows, travel as much as possible, and maybe write a book if I feel like it.

Favorite flavor: bloody steak and birthday cake

Favorite feeling: Has anyone NOT said cumming? I also once did mushrooms at an Electric Wizard show and thought I was a physical extension the devil–that was a close second.

Favorite fabric: Black leather, specifically being slapped in the face by a pair of gloves made out of it.

Substance is: what radiates from a fully actualized individual who can admit they not only don’t have all the answers, but never will and are fine to keep searching regardless. I think in the social media age, persona and substance are sometimes confused for one another, but the former will always seem disingenuous until the latter is realized.

Slut is: a sexual, powerful, unapologetic femme. I’m honored to be considered one.
