Hooking Up? Your Female Friends May Think You’re Promiscuous

A study shows that women are judged by female friends for hooking up and engaging in casual sex. So today we celebrate celebrities who are sex symbols!

Women Whipers

Your female friends may think you’re a slut but we want to celebrate your sexual freedom!

Growing up Latina, we are often taught to close our yaps and close our legs, and not just to married men (quoting Nene Leakes!). Young ladies who don’t follow these rules suffer through judgemental glares. “El que diran” runs rampant. We are labeled promiscuous, or in Dominican speak, “un cuero.” Family members smile in our faces; minutes later they tear us down, gossiping about how they say us with Jose, Carlos and even Tom!

“She even does it with gringos,” one Tia will whisper.

This is the plight of many Latinas who just want to hook up. Sex isn’t the same for everyone. Not all women need a romantic relationship or an emotional connection to get it on, or enjoy sex. These are the women who are labeled promiscuous by cousins, aunts, and even friends.

I’ve even been guilty of judging women who engage in casual sex. And some of you have too.

According to a study, young women view their promiscuous female peers more negatively than those who are less sexually active. Even when the women themselves had a high number of sexual partners or liberal views on casual sex, they judged other women who had a high number of sexual partners. The conclusion of the study comes as no surprise: although attitudes surrounding casual sex are more accepting than past decades, women still face a double standard.

So it seems women are not only discriminated by romantic partners and interests, but also by female friends.

This really isn’t news to me. As I said, I’m guilty of judging women who sleep around. And it’s not only due to my strict, Latino Catholic upbringing. I have noted this very attitude from other friends of other races, celebrities and especially in movies and on television shows. Well, I want to do better. Let’s take this moment to celebrate women who’ve been torn down due to their sexual prowess.

Here are a list of women (fictional and real) who are sexually free:
