The Ethical Slut

Janet W. Hardy

Overview

Generally, when men have lots of casual sex they're affectionately deemed 'players' or 'studs', while women who do the same are maligned as 'sluts.' But the word 'slut' need not be derogatory – it can be reclaimed for good.

In this book, sex educator Janet W. Hardy and family therapist Dossie Easton set out to reframe the word slut from a connotation of loose and amoral sexuality to one of generous abundance. Since its original publication in 1997, The Ethical Slut has had a major impact in popularizing polyamory and other alternative romantic lifestyles. Hardy and Easton argue that sexual and romantic love are fundamental forces for good, with the potential to strengthen intimate bonds, enhance lives, open spiritual awareness, and even change the world.

"Sluts often find that the more love and sex they give away, the more they have: a loaves-and-fishes miracle in which greed and generosity go hand in hand to provide more for everybody."
