  • Get ten people in a room and everybody can agree what 'sexy' means, i.e. sexually attractive. Now ask those ten people what 'slutty' means and you've got a problem. "It's a derogatory term for sexually active women and girls", "it's a synonym for sexy", "women who sleep around because they don't respect themselves are slutty", "my little black dress is totally slutty", "it's what high school boys call girls who won't sleep with them", it's a state of mind", "slutty is a social construct and as such only exists in the spaces between meaning, therefore it is both meaningful and meaningless depending on perception...kind of like Schroedinger's cat" The best I can come up with is it means different things to different people and likely will for a while to come.

  • Very analytical approach. Correct perception but poor in subject matter. Could have been more lively and informative.

Self Exploration: Sexy vs. Slutty by Jillian from 3iying

  1. GIRLAPPROVED the visual language of sexuality
  2. sexy vs. slutty We’ve been trying to uncover the difference between sexy and slutty. We see advertisements that appear to be slutty instead of sexy all the time... but why is that? An image can change completely because of one little detail, whether it be attitude, body position, facial expression, or what someone is wearing. There is something about a sexy photo that draws us in, but there is also something about a slutty photo that totally turns us off. Is there something specific that makes photos look sexy or slutty? In order to get a better insight on this topic, I decided to look into myself. When do I look sexy and when do I look slutty?
  3. the exploration of self what makes self portraits sexy? what makes self portraits slutty?
  4. the exploration of self what makes self portraits sexy? • innocence • modesty • up close and personal • right in your face • style • unafraid • confidence • softness • comfortable • smiling/laughing • goofy and fun • authentic/honest/true • sense of humor • real/natural/genuine • humane
  5. the exploration of self what makes self portraits slutty? • loss of innocence • too much exposure • focus on body • no face or cut off • too serious • trying too hard • uncomfortable • kissy face • smirks • cat eye • body language • too much confidence • posing • impersonal • unemotional/cold
  6. SELF DISCOVERY There is a fine line between sexy and slutty. A photo comes off as slutty when it’s impersonal– when you don’t even know who’s in the photo, or what her story is. When the camera is focused on her body and not her face, the photo takes away meaning and value... the girl lacks personality and she lacks life. Sexy is natural, innocent, soft, genuine, and real. It’s up close and personal– it’s in your face. It’s confident, but modest at the same time. It shows real girls with real feelings. Sexy photos are approachable, while slutty photos can be intimidating.
