Publisher's Summary

As the only female columnist at controversial, conservative Taki's Magazine, Kathy Shaidle soon found herself covering an unlikely beat: sexuality. "Unlikely" because as the married, 50-year-old Shaidle explains, "my 'number' (as the kids call it these days) is so low that in certain Australian provinces I would still be considered a virgin." Confessions of a Failed Slut blends personal reflections - "How the Love Boat Ruined My Life" - with contrarian takes on porn (online and off), dating (ditto), "slut shaming," sex toys, "robot hookers of the near future," dinosaur erotica, the multiplication of genders and orientations, and what she calls "the epidemic of beta male faggotry" plaguing the land.
An author and blogging pioneer, Kathy Shaidle has been called "a night terror" (Wonkette), "one of the great virtuoso polemicists of our day" (Mark Steyn), "strenuously witless" (James Walcott), "a purveyor of some of the most offensive racial stereotypes I have ever read" (the Canadian Jewish Congress), "a Zionist shill for the New World Order" (InfoWars) and "not a particularly nice person" (Alex Koppelman, Salon.com).

Weak

To me this one came off as a bitter boomer yearning for the old days when 18 year old's married in order to be able to have sex. The idea of excluding of teen mothers from the school annual in order to slut shame her is appalling. Even at 69 minutes (ah, irony) this one is too long, I only wish that to rate it I had to give it one star; it doesn't deserve one.

- Me & My Girls "Thanks and respect to the women that served and paid a high price. You are still gorgeous Shi; your scars make you even more beautiful."

Waste of time and money

Maybe I missed something but I remember this book being pretty highly rated with other feminist content....
This was one of the worst most pointlessly offensive books I've ever read. If you want to hear the embittered rantings of an out of touch judgey woman who lives on a high horse and clearly, as her title would suggest, does not get laid enough, then you've come to the right place. This book will give you a good couple hours of hearing someone complain and be judgey and disturbingly slut shame pretty much everyone and everything in our culture from the last 40 years and call it challenging, analytical brilliance. Disappointed, insulted and annoyed is how I feel after spending a day with this "book." Who is validating this woman???
