why do i consider myself a whore?

Updated: May 7


i absolutely adore the word whore for many reasons. the most simple reason is because i'm kinky and i love words that have some darkness to them meaning people are fearful of it and it may bring shame. i'm big on people confronting their fears and learning to become open minded. well i thought my first reason didn't have much depth to it but i just can't help it.


the next reason is because when i thought of creating my sacred kink temple i had in mind the history of sacred whore's who were sexual healers revered for being able to help men returning from war to acclimate back to life at home with their families. as in they went and saw the sacred whore first before returning home. there are different stories about sacred whores but this is the one that stands out to me for reasons i will share at another time.


also sacred whore history is not easily found especially in a way that really shares the healing rituals (it's kept in the dark or underground, a knowing passed down not googled which has it's advantages). for shock value most would like to just view it as sex being sold but there is so much to understand when it comes to this work starting with understanding that sex is sacred. for me i identify as a sexual being, i am very aware and so are the people around me, that i ooze sexual energy, which is a powerful energy we all benefit from knowing how to work with, even my fellow aces(asexuals). i have learned how to harness my energy through kink rituals to effect healing or transformation which is my preferred word as it alludes to evolving which is a constant as opposed to trying to reach a destination of being healed. and i know the value of my energy so i seek an exchange for it. i could go into how men feel entitled to women's bodies so exchange for this energy is shamed but i just want to keep this from going down too many sidetracks.


i am here to evoke change. i am a pioneer in my own way and at some point sacred whore's will be revered in the United States (i'm not sure if it is already the case in other places) and then i will have to have a new identifier so i can still have my fun of using a word that creates powerful reactions. :)
