    She said F%#K no less than 50 times and you're asking US to be chill?
    Whatever dude.

    From a nearly 50 year old slut, enough already with the slut shaming. Jenna is right. What do YOU care?
    Women are not allowed to like sex, have sex (unless they're in love with The One), deal in their own private way with the consequences of sex, or act as if they are sexual beings. So our Puritan society allows one wild night a year when the women of America get to come out from under the fluorescent lights of their nine to five drudgery and live as if they don't give a rat's petooty about anything. Set the Goddess free only once a year and she's likely to behave like a wild thing caged. Perhaps if she live, as a Goddess should, free and in the sunlight everyday, she would not be so frightening to so many as she gorges herself on the intoxicants of her tender too short freedom.

      I agree! In Montreal, when I was in high school, we were all astonished by billboards on sky scrapers of naked women and nudity on mainstream television. While we felt it was all a bit degraded and exciting, both, it was NBD pour nos amis.

  3. Erica says:

    Let's face it, deep down; we've all got some repressed sluttiness. If a Halloween costume is your way of expressing the repression, all the power to you! We all have many levels and it can be fun to play around with how we express ourselves. Halloween is a safe night to do that, as the people we often fear judgement from are more forgiving.
    I'm going to be a black ninja, as I have found other—socially acceptable—ways to express my “inner slut”; it is, however, more difficult to find a socially acceptable way to express my “inner assassin”… Thank you Halloween!

    So, I was in the pub last night… it's a bank holiday today, so no work, party time…. Everyone that dressed up got a free cocktail (I don't like cocktails, so I didn't dress up, that was my excuse.)

    The place was crowded and hot so, I go outside to get some air. There's a girl outside wearing a sexy Nun costume, smoking a cigarette. I walked straight up to her and said; "Damn girl, that's a habit you need to get out of!"

    She blew smoke in my face. I kinda wished I was in Holland…. blowing smoke in someone's face is a come-on to the Dutch.

    What? I’m gonna disagree here. We’re allowed to be slutty. In fact, we’re encouraged to be slutty. Check out the magazines lately? Porn culture is mainstream…

    What we’re not allowed to be is intelligent and powerful. See the hatred women politicians get? It’s big time.

    I double fuckin’ dare all us girls to one day go out and look as smart, funny, intelligent and as powerful as you really are, instead of pretending to be coy, sexy little unthreatening kittens all the time who only care about shoes and pouting.

    Then I wish it stuck, and we went out that way everyday.

    I am sooo done with the Paris Hilton mentality of acting dumb.

    • tulasi adeva says:

      Amen Irene!
      Have you heard of or seen the documentary Miss Independent? If not, seek it out. So powerful and important. Its time to reclaim our power as women and not be ruled by the over sexualization of our gender. http://www.missrepresentation.org

    • Pinchy Cat says:

      So, if I understand correctly, your conclusion is that a woman cannot be coy and sexy, while concurrently being intelligent and powerful? Interesting leap, there.

      Fact: the video is a satire about people doing what they want for Halloween.

      Fiction: the video is a serious narrative on how women should be skanks at a cost to everything else.

      Point: missed it.

    • Heather McCaw says:

      I agree. I think dressing slutty on Halloween isn't far from what our culture encourages on a day-to-day basis. In her book "Cinderella Ate My Daughter," Peggy Orenstein makes a strong argument for how there is a direct, consumer-driven line between the princess trappings we push on our daughters from age six, to the Monster High dolls, to the body- and fashion-obsessed imagery that starts in the teen years… and pretty much continues throughout our lives.

      I'm not going to judge individual women for dressing however they want on Halloween, but let's be smart about this. And speaking of smart, I'd love to see a young woman go out dressed as Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg. I also love to see the occasional little girl dressed as Amelia Earhart and not just another Disney princess.

    She is HILARIOUS!

  7. Rich K says:

    I love this girl! It seems her point is more about how to be open and accepting of everyone, regardless of how slutty they choose to be.

  8. Kristin says:

    Dunno. Not convinced. This wasn't even funny. What was in the least yogic or talented about this? Why does elephantjournal waste bandwith on this drivel? It's more like reality tv.

  9. justthisbreath says:

    "Eighteen, twenty-four….little younger, little older…?" Yep, those were my Halloween slut years. Loved it!

    it’s every girls right to want to be Sexy and/or attractive, but somehow the concept of being Sexy without losing the respect for yourself and others has been lost. There is a thin line between being a beautiful, powerful and Sexy women and being cheap. It is very true that noone should care or judge how want dress or are but I just don’t think that you can be respected or expect to be respected if you are selling yourself short. I am sure that a lot of these girls end up crying in the bathroom stall or wake up the next day not being able to look at themselves anymore. congrats to the girl in the toothbrush outfit that just looks Sexy as hell by the way she carries herself. Cheers

  12. I am a cook and have many cookbooks. One is a Chinese food cookbook from the 1930s. All of the stir-fry recipes call for lard. Another is “The Yankee Cookbook” 1939 edition. The classic Boston baked bean recipe calls for a Quart of pea beans (almost 2 lbs), 1 1/2 TBL Brown Sugar and 1/4 C of molasses. “Cape Cod cooks add 1/2 C cream in the last half hour of cooking” A modern book called “Barbecue USA” has a recipe called “Beanhole Beans” which calls for 1 Lb beans 1/2 C molasses,1/2 C Ketchup, 1/3 C Brown sugar (or more to taste). That would roughly equate to 2 2/3 C of sweeteners in the older recipe or roughly 10 times the sugar.

    This adds a hilarious spin on an otherwise sad truth, with the undertone that we should all be more tolerant of one another. Good for you Jenna Marbles!

    Thank you for sharing, Waylon. I love Jenna's videos and her ability to keep it real. Funny, beautiful, intelligent- doesn't get much better than that.
