A slut is someone who has sex with lots of people, or as urban dictionary defines it, “a woman with the morals of a man.” A whore is someone who gets paid for that predilection. I’ve always considered myself a slut—I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Now I’m reorienting myself to embrace the word whore.

  Whore

At 9 AM on Monday morning I reported to work. I mustered up the courage to post my detailed ad on the website, my heart racing. It got automatically deleted for having the wrong words. For instance, I wrote that I had the body of a Greek goddess, and “Greek” is a banned word because it means anal. Um, I don’t DO Greek. Ha.

So I tried rewording it and reposting it. Deleted again. And again.

By this time I wanted to throw my computer. I spent hours trying to get it to pass. I mean what the fuck, some of the ads posted on there were just plain obscene—transvestite asses in the shower, beaver shots, ads with GREEK in all caps right in the title, raunchy little typo ridden ditties. Ahh, maybe THAT’S why they have all the typos, to avoid being censored. And here I thought they were stupid.

I reviewed all the website terms and conditions and FINALLY at 2 PM I got it posted, looking like this:

“Fantasies and Feeling Good With Elisabeth

So many people are ashamed of their fantasies, and they shouldn't be! I want to break down barriers and safely make some fantasies come true.

I’m Elisabeth, 29, 5’4”, 120 lbs., natural, long dark blonde hair, blue eyes, pretty face, bi. I have the body of a goddess in the art museum—pale, very soft, no tattoos, with small breasts and curvy hips and ass. These photos were taken on 3-18-07.

Please drop me a line and I will email you more info. (I tried making this more descriptive, but they don’t seem to like some of my words, which is funny, given some of the ads I see on here!) I live in town and am available mornings, lunches, afternoons, evenings, and some weekends.”


By then I was wracked with nerves and sweating. And then.

Immediately I got hits. Twenty. Fifty. Seventy-five inquiries.

Before long, I had 150 men filling my inbox begging for more info, a time, telling me how beautiful and refreshing the ad was. I was amazed at what they were asking me, and what they were like. I took down the ad 12 hours after I posted it due to the overwhelming response. My cup runneth over, my hands were full. Speaking of full, was it brilliant marketing sense on my part to post my ad on the full moon?!

I'd agree with you on the prostitution thing if prostitution were regulated and children weren't forced into it. But until then-and face it, it'll be almost impossible to make that work....Until then I can't agree.

Interviews with The Beautiful Kind

  • For TBK, this interview is all about Coming Out as a Sex Positive Slut in the Midwest Bible Belt. What made Kendra decide to “come out”? What was it like being fired from her job for her personal blog? What are her plans now that she is fully embracing her identity?

    Kendra Holliday is The Beautiful Kind, a 38-year-old bisexual mother living in St. Louis, MO. She has been boldly and bravely exploring sex for over 20 years, and has spent the past four years documenting her wild adventures anonymously online as a Sex Writer, Consultant, and Editor of TheBeautifulKind.com. So, on Coming Out Day, and in keeping with her belief that sex should be discussed openly and honestly in the light of day instead of whispered secretively in the dark, she has made the difficult but vital decision to fully own all that she has done - the good, the bad, and the ugly. And now she is telling you her name, showing you her face, telling you her story (did you see the [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sexis/sex-and-society/coming-out-day-beautiful-kind-1011101/|video interview] on SexIs yet?!), and taking your questions here. You may recall that The Beautiful Kind made national news in April when she was dramatically fired from her full-time day job for writing about sex in her personal life under a pen name. In a random Google search, TBK's employer found her real name unknowingly linked to her personal website, and based her immediate termination on this sole instance. The employer has continually declined public comment. Countless blogs and media websites picked up the scandalous story, including Inc.com, Business Insider, Glamour, Huffington Post, digg, Jezebel, Fleshbot, and Mental_Floss. During that difficult time, TBK took her website down for a few weeks and focused on writing her empowering ebook The Book of Goddess: Elevating Your Desirability to Mythic Proportions. Kendra shares: “I'm grateful to my friends and family for supporting my decision. There's no telling what will come of this bold move, but I'm confident coming out will open up many new doors and be an inspiration to others. We all want to be accepted for who we are.” Kendra writes openly about her current life experiences on her own site, as well as her former days as a sex worker, in her column, [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sexis/columns/the-whore-journals/| The Whore Journals] on SexIs. Kendra is embracing her future by focusing on ways to give back to the community and to educate others. As a founding member of a new not-for-profit community organization, Sex Positive St. Louis (SEX+STL), she is excited about the potential of this online community resource for local sex positive events, partnerships with organizations, and information sharing. As Kendra plans workshops and speaking events, both independently and with SEX+STL, EdenFantasys will be sponsoring her efforts. We are very much looking forward to this new chapter in the beautiful life of Kendra Holliday, The Beautiful Kind, as she continues to elevate her sex positive mission!
