Pink Lets Us In on a Little Sex Secret & Calls Herself a Four-Letter-Word

OMG 2

Pink in June 'Glamour'I don't know about you guys, but I can't get enough of Pink's latest album "The Truth About Love." But really, I've probably listened to "Just Give Me A Reason" four times within the last hour. The 33-year-old songwriter opened up about the album in the June issue of Glamour, saying that she's comfortable with the sexy vibe of the tracks and even going as far as to proclaim herself a "reformed slut."

... I suppose that's an interesting way to put it. The singer and mother of 2-year-old daughter Willow Sage says that the risque lyrics like "They think we fall in love/ but that's not it/ Just want to get some" are her way of taking power back from her past.

"I've always had an issue with [the idea that] 'OK, we've both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you're the player. You didn't get anything from me that I didn't get from you.'"

Yeah, she's a little vulgar, but the woman has a serious point.

We've all had this conversation before, right? Heck, I know I have. Why is it that a man that sleeps around is praised by his friends for being able to get all the ladies, but a woman is looked at negatively for acting upon her sexuality? It just isn't fair that for "acting like a man," so to speak, a woman is given a hard glare.

Heck -- even in the most private of scenarios, I know a handful of women who are hesitant to act on their urges, to be forward, to forget their inhibitions and just go with it. I think that more than 99 percent of the time, it's because these women don't want their partners to think they're easy or a floozy. A lady wants to be seen as someone with class. Someone that can be respected, even though she can get down behind closed doors.

So the big question: can you be a "reformed slut," as Pink so eloquently puts? Sure you can. You can be a woman who takes more pride in her actions and doesn't classify them as slutty but rather natural. You can talk about your history with pride. I think that's where Pink's going with this one. I think the woman trying to validate her past while empowering women to feel like they too can do the same.

I commend Pink for being real on her album. Sure things get a little hot to handle at times, but the woman isn't afraid to tell it like it is. One day little Willow Sage is gonna grow up to be super proud to have this rock star as a mother.

Do you think Pink has a point? Do you think calling herself a reformed slut is a little extreme?

My friends and I had a discussion about this last week. A male friend made a joke that does, in a way, puts perspective into this whole issue about male vs female sexuality.

"Think of it like this: A Master key opens all the locks in a building or floor, and is very useful to have. But a lock that can be opened by many different keys is not a good lock to put on your door."

In all seriousness though, I agree with Pink.

I don't know if I want a key that's been in too many locks.


And sometimes you gotta try a few keys to find the one that opens the lock.


I think the real difference, but not for all, is that women tend to have an emotional element attached to sex and guys just have an orgasm.
