Why Slut-Shaming Backfires For Bros

May 01, 2014 2 min read

As we all know, calling out and devaluing women for their sexual behaviour is ridiculous misogynistic bullcrap, but Playboy has an argument that may encourage more people to stop the hate. Playboy had a surprisingly scientific article (I know, they have articles?) about why ending slut-shaming will ultimately lead to more people getting laid. There is a common double standard that men are allowed to sleep around, but women are sluts if they are similarly promiscuous. It’s this negative stigma around sexually active women which makes women as a whole less likely to seek out sexual encounters. slutshaming There are undoubtedly certain biological gender differences when it comes to sexual activity, but nurture and not just nature play a part in promiscuity preferences. In a study of 24,000 students from across America, 28% of men said they would lose respect for a woman who “hooked up a lot” but wouldn’t if it was a man. In general, studies show that people disapprove of a sexually promiscuous woman more so than a man. slut defined Luckily that trend is changing, as social and economic conditions change, more people have the freedom of sexual expression, and today’s generation have less of a gender divide than the one before it, so we can only hope this pattern will continue. Ultimately, the article points out that if we create an environment where women feel comfortable enough to engage in sexual activity as freely as they choose, and when paired with the right partners, then women will want casual sex just as much as guys statistically do. Everyone in favour of getting laid more – stop calling people sluts. slutdouble-standard-slut

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
