Happy Birthday! Scandalouswomen is 10 Years Old!

Happy BirthdayAbout 10 years ago me and a couple of friends had this crazy idea to start a really sexy website just for women.  Back in 1999  Scandalouswomen began as a Yahoo! Club and many who stumbled upon that fledgling online community were appalled. Some in the BDSM community labled us “Femdom lite.” Others in the swinging community shunned us for taking too much power out of the hands of men in the arena of open relationships specifically and female sexuality in general. Yet they, and we, were unaware that an entire social and political mini-movement was bubbling under the international psyche – one that created a brand new component of feminism that seemed tailor-made for Scandalouswomen.

Sex-positive Feminism, sometimes called stiletto feminism, lipstick feminism, and slut-feminism, is a movement that was formed in the early 1980s and centers on the idea that sexual freedom is an essential component of women’s freedom. Some believe it is a natural progression from the sexual revolution of the 60s. Others declare it is a back-lash against the conservative movement that has endeavored to put limits on what women can and cannot do sexually.

Sex-positive Feminism – scandalous style – is hybrid of various sexual lifestyles.  We’re the whip wielding leather goddesses, the college girls getting our first taste of freedom, the cougars prowling for younger men,  the high school sluts “putting out” to whomever we want, the swingers and the libertines exclaiming “if it feels good, do it!”

So here’s to scandalous women everywhere – and to 10 years of Scandalouswomen.com!
