S.L.U.T. is Beckerman's acronym for Sexually Liberated Urban Teens, and in this outrageous, chilling blend of fact and fiction, the 20-year-old author characterizes his view of his generation: hypersexual, emotionally vacant, and disturbingly tolerant of abuse. Beckerman sets his story in a high-school social scene in which parties are seemingly joyless orgies of detached sex. Naive, sensitive Max is an anomaly, unlike his crass friend Brett.

S.L.U.T. is Beckerman's acronym for Sexually Liberated Urban Teens, and in this outrageous, chilling blend of fact and fiction, the 20-year-old author characterizes his view of his generation: hypersexual, emotionally vacant, and disturbingly tolerant of abuse. Beckerman sets his story in a high-school social scene in which parties are seemingly joyless orgies of detached sex. Naive, sensitive Max is an anomaly, unlike his crass friend Brett. Julia is a new girl with soul and integrity Trevor is a precocious young tycoon, adored by his parents, who is actually a rapist and a pornographer. The slight story about Max's first crush and Trevor's profound villainy is overpowered by Beckerman's purposeful unveiling of the vicious social climate: there's an extremely graphic gang rape, several kids attempt suicide, and parents are caricatures of ineffectuality. Beckerman runs into some trouble with occasional autobiographical segments that show he is clearly a participant in the world he chronicles a swagger (references to the state of his penis and his favorite sexual position, for example) seeps into some of his writing, undermining what seems to be his strident message: a generation is being lost. He reinforces that message much more effectively with the deeply unnerving "S.L.U.T. Stats," culled from journalism and medical studies, that appear throughout the book, and it's this skillfully edited compilation of contemporary teen attitudes toward sex that is perhaps this disturbing book's best justification for purchase.
This book is a work of fiction, excluding the between-chapter memoirs, news clippings and statistics. Names, characters, places and incidents are products of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. This book is dedicated, with overflowing sympathy, to every eighteen-year-old virgin on Planet Earth. Thank Christ I wasn't one of you poor f...rs for long. - Marty Beckerman
Marty Beckerman is an alternative journalist, humorist, and author known for his works Death to All Cheerleaders, Generation S.L.U.T., and Dumbocracy. He was born January 23, 1983 in Anchorage, Alaska. Becerkman is an only child born to two only children, resulting in a lack of relatives his own age. He wrote his first novel at the young age of 17 and graduated from American University with a degree in journalism in three years.
Marty Beckerman started his career at the Anchorage Daily News, which published his weekly humor column for 70,000 readers during his freshman and sophomore years of high school. He famously lost the $15 per week gig after asking a female cheerleader--during an unapproved, unprovoked interview--how it feels "to be a urine stain on the toilet seat of America." Neither the girl's parents nor Beckerman's long-suffering editor found this question amusing. In 2000 Beckerman collected many of his columns into Death to All Cheerleaders: One Adolescent Journalist's Cheerful Diatribe Against Teenage Plasticity. He sold a thousand copies of the book from his parents' basement. The ensuing publicity led to a deal for Generation S.L.U.T.: A Brutal Feel-Up Session with Today's Sex-Crazed Adolescent Populace (sexually liberated urban teens), which MTV Books / Simon & Schuster published in 2004. The book was translated into numerous languages. HBO Films optioned the movie rights, but the option has since expired.
S.L.U.T. propelled Beckerman, still a junior at American University, to the national and international stage. He has been featured by The New York Times, the New York Post, The Guardian, ABCNews.com, MSNBC, Salon.com, Fox News Channel, and National Public Radio. He has written for Playboy, Discover, Radar, Reason, The Huffington Post, New York Press, GetUnderground.com, Jewcy.com, AintItCoolNews.com, and The Daily Beast. Beckerman's best-known journalistic achievements include taking a prostitute to his senior prom (S.L.U.T.), provoking the wrath of punk rock star Henry Rollins (Cheerleaders), getting sodomized with a dildo, and interviewing gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, who called him a "morbid little bastard." Beckerman considers this the greatest compliment of his career. The Disinformation Company published Beckerman's third book, Dumbocracy: Adventures with the Loony Left, the Rabid Right and Other American Idiots, in September 2008.
Politically, Beckerman has ricocheted between positions. According to an article he wrote for Salon, he was initially a "passionate liberal" upon entering college. He rebelled against other strong liberals in college, however, such as professors who pushed "utopian and hypersensitive politics" and a very liberal girlfriend who dumped him. Beckerman became a strident hard-right conservative for a time, notably when writing and promoting Generation S.L.U.T. Beckerman says that he also acquired "a finger-wagging puritan bent, which made absolutely no sense for a 20-year-old guy who was getting laid and intoxicated on a steady basis." After disputes with friends and family, and a long running email conversation with a psychologist, he moderated his position to a more laid-back liberalism by 2008, however.
