I loved so many parts of this post. I am sorry to hear that you were in an emotionally abusive relationship early on. I understand that those hurts run deep, but as I know you — it seems that you have conquered those scars. I would like to say it’s brave, but I understand it’s just life for you: so let me atleast say, you are might good at moving forward.
I have never understood slut shaming. And if we still insist on using that word — then let me put it out there. I’m a complete slut and the only women I date are sluts. We’re just better in the sack because experience is the best teacher. So suck it virgins and “pure” people. Wait you can’t. You don’t know how to.
