Greetings dear reader. Thank you for visiting our website. Come in, take a look around, and stay a while. Make sure to check back often because we are continually updating our content, or subscribe to our community, so you never miss a thing. With that being said. Who and what is Harlot? Well . . .
We are a group of educators with a passion for teen health. We write about sex, birth control, menstruation, relationships, sexual identity, nutrition, wellness, activism, philosophy, and pretty much anything related to becoming a well-rounded human. However, it is important to note that we are not teenagers.
We cannot speak for you.
We cannot speak for your experiences.
But what we can do at Harlot is try to open up a dialogue with you. We want you to think of us more like friends sharing their knowledge rather than just another group of adults telling you what to do and how to live.
This website is for you.
Your voice will have the power to influence it.
If you read something that needs correcting, let us know. If you want to read more on a particular topic, say so. If you come across something that needs clarification, ask for it. If you want to contribute your knowledge and experience about being a teen in the modern world, pitch us the idea. Our goal is to create a welcoming and inclusive community for anyone and everyone who wants to be here.
Help shape the community.
It is important for you to also know, with some topics, we are learning as we go. We can only speak from our lived experiences, and book learning can only take us so far. If you ever feel excluded from the content, know that it is not on purpose. Please accept our sincerest apologies. But, please, speak up about it. Never be afraid to have your voice heard.
Finally, while we don’t have a lot of rules for this site, we do want to maintain civility and respect with each other when discussing ideas. For each article, we include a comment section so you can engage with us, with each other, and to share your thoughts or to ask questions. However, we reserve the right to delete hateful comments but also allow you to flag questionable content for administrative review. This is because we want to protect our site, but most importantly protect you, from trolling and triggering.
Harlot will not be used as a soapbox for hate speech.
With that being said, you can always get ahold of us directly with any comments, concerns, or questions. Well, what are you waiting for? Come on in and join our community!
