Does a kiss make you a slut?

Hokay, so on Friday night me and some friends decided to make use of our new 18-year-old booties and hit the clubs, and I pulled. Some guy asked me to dance and we kissed. A lot. We exchanged numbers and all and since then I've realised that maybe relationships at the moments aren't my thing. I'm 18 - I feel too young to be committing to serious relationships like everyone else. I want to enjoy being young, and Friday night helped me realise that.

The only problem is that when I told my friends this, I got this response:

"Isn't that a bit...slutty?"

Hold it just a second.

I looked up the word slut on the Internet, and this was the definition it came up with: "A slovenly or promiscuous woman." So basically a woman who has casual sex with lots of people, yes? How does a kiss - a snog even - with a guy at a club make me a slut? It's not like I'm going to sleep with any guy I meet at a club. A kiss is a kiss - no big deal. Sex on the other hand is an amazing gift, an out-of-body experience, and I wouldn't cheapen it by sleeping with random guys. That would make me a slut.

It just makes me angry at how there are still narrow minded people in the world. Why are we expected to go all out committed when we start something with another person? Why does it have to be a relationship where it's all or nothing? Aren't we too young to all be thinking like that?

Correct me if I'm wrong and I am being a slut, but I don't see what harm there is in just staying single, and having casual 'moments' with other people.

  1. No it's not slutty at all....anyone who says that is silly. Life is about living, experiencing the world, etc...

    1. Exactly! If anything, I think people are growing up too quickly these days.

  2. Kissing strangers, having "casual moments" is all about being young. Enjoy it while you still can.
