Samantha Jones is not a slut!


As I told you in my last post, I’m kind of addicted to Sex and the City. I don’t know why someone can’t love or at least appreciate SATC. But that aside, I wanted to talk about one of the characters. Samantha Jones.

A proud, confident, highly sexual woman, most of her storylines revolve around the frequent sex and brief affairs she has. She is outspoken and a self-proclaimed “try-sexual” (meaning she’ll try anything at least once). She is portrayed as brash, straightforward, highly protective of her friends, and unafraid of confrontation. She also displays nonchalance toward dating and monogamy and becomes uncomfortable whenever her sexual relationships take an emotional turn.

However, everytime I talk to people about SATC, they always seem to see Samantha as a slut. They find her easy-to-get, trashy with a behaviour which a proper woman should not have. But there are certain things which I really don’t seem to understand. Why is Samantha Jones a slut, but for example, Mr. Bond isn´t. Why is it acceptable for a guy to have many sexual partners, but not for a woman?

First of all, people seem to have a certain way of behaving for a woman and man. Men are aloud to assert their sexual needs, but a decent woman cannot do this. If she does, then she is a slut!

Second of all, a decent woman, apperently, shouldn’t have a lot of sexual partners, certainly no one-night-stands. If she does, she is a slut!

And last but not least, our society thinks that women are only aloud to have sex with the people they have a relationship with. If they don’t, they are simply sluts!

But what about men? Why can they sleep with thousand(if that’s possible) of women and not being seen as sluts. Is there even a male word for slut? The thing that most surprised me, is that the majority in who’s opinion Samantha is a slut, are women!

Girls, if we want to be treated equallly and get the same chances as the other sex, why don’t we start with ourselfs first?

I just want to say that whatever a woman does, it’s her own business. No one has the right to call someone, in this case Samantha, a slut if they are sexually active and not sleeping with one regular person.
