How much birth control does a slut use?

Pop quiz: how much birth control does a slut use?
Answer: the same amount that a monogamous wife uses. The same amount as a celibate woman using hormonal birth control for managing the symptoms of PCOS. The same amount as any other woman in the world who uses birth control.

In case you were not aware, you need the same amount of hormonal birth control if you sleep with one man or a thousand. In the case of birth control pills, for example, every woman takes one pill a day, no matter how many men she is sleeping with, be it one, one thousand, or zero. Kind of makes birth control seem like a bargain, huh?
I bring this up because recent media events have made it clear that some people in this country legitimately don’t know how birth control works. They believe that the more sex you have, the more birth control you need to take. This is not the case.
