I recently came across this online article in Everyday Feminism: 5 Myths Sex-Positive Feminism Can Perpetuate About Women Who Don’t Do Casual Sex. I thought it was a great article and it resonated with me because I’m monogamous and not into casual sex by conscious choice, even though I am sex-positive.
Just as people shouldn’t have to defend their decision to have many sexual partners, they shouldn’t have to defend their decision to have few or none. We already judge women by their sex lives too much, and we don’t need more of that from within the feminist community.
Feminism should give us the option to follow or reject gender roles – not the compulsion to reject them.- Suzannah Weiss
