Which dating apps are best for who? And can you ask your gynecologist on a date? I discuss this and more on this week’s episode of New York magazine’s “Sex Lives” podcast, with host (and fellow slut) Maureen O’Connor. I also rant about the insufferable elitism (and stealth racism) of Raya; what to drink before peeing in someone’s mouth; and “IRL catfishing.” Listen here. pic by Ryan Lowry
Allegedly NYC is the only podcast that I regularly cry laughing while listening to. So obviously, I’m so excited to be a guest on it!
I wrote a mini manifesto about rebranding the word “slut” for a new website called The Provocateur, which features handwritten letters by women. The new definition of “slut” was written by the organizers of the SlutWalk Seattle, and I think it’s perfecto! – Karley Sciortino
Millennials have sex to assess if we want to get to know someone, not the other way around… so what happens when someone you’re dating makes you wait to have sex? I wrote an embarrassing personal essay about it for my latest Breathless for Vogue. – Karley Sciortino Read it HERE :)

My latest Breathless column for Vogue is about why she’s an incredible person and feminist, and why being a radical slut is just generally a bad bitch move. Read it HERE :)
I love getting recommendations about things to watch, read, listen to and look at from my friends and the people I respect. There’s just so much content in the world (aka on the internet) these days, and it can get so overwhelming that rather than consuming anything worthwhile, we just end up staring at Instagram instead.

If you ask me, the key to a great Halloween costume is looking hot without looking like a desperate skank–it’s a fine line. A trick I’ve picked up over the years is: if you dress like a straight-up slut–i.e. like a sexy cat, a sexy nun, or Malibu Barbie–you just come across like a trashy basic-bitch.
