Your Weekly Slut Roundup

From sex workers to women who use birth control or just, you know, anyone at all on the feminine spectrum, no one is safe from the slings and arrows of the S-word. Our weekly “slut roundup” is a snapshot of recent news items where the term has popped up, from stories on slut-shaming and sexist bigotry to any relevant sex positive pieces as well.

This week we have five sex positive podcasts to make you weak in the knees, a funny misuse of the term “slut-shaming” by good old Fox News, a study on how income affects perceptions of promiscuity, a review of Laurie Penny’s new book Unspeakable Things, and an opinion piece detailing the differences between pop feminism and “real” feminism.
