My teacher brought it up in psych class. I'm genuinely concerned I tried looking it because I'm highly concerned. Are there other factors. Someone explain and help

I feel women have been encouraged to have more sex without the typical ideas of female 'promiscuity' having been dealt with first: TV and magazines and your libfem friends might insist on your having sex, but men will still consider you a slut. Instead of abolishing the idea of the 'slut' altogether, we now just encourage women to be 'sluts' and reclaim the term. But I don't think most women have embraced that idea. They don't want to be considered sluts. Hence a fantasy like this that 'absolves' them of their own sexual desires. How bleak is that, truly?

You may be on to something with that. Being a "slut" is still considered bad. Maybe some women are still very conditioned to think that their enjoyment of sex makes them "sluts."
