Words for Male Slut

Posted on Sep 4, 2012 in Me | 2 comments

Let’s have a look at how many words there are for a female slut:

Wench, floozy, harlot, hooker, hussy, prostitute, tart, vamp, tramp, whore, strumpet, Jezebel, broad, jade, trollop, scarlet, woman of the street, working girl, hustler, minx, loose, skank, slag

I’m sure we could think of more colloquial ones as well.  (PS: love the words Strumpet and Trollop.   Wish we could recycle these sounds with a different meaning…)

Okay, now for the boys’ turn:

Pimp, gigolo, player

That’s all I could think of and thesaurus.com isn’t helping me at all.

What astounds me about this clear bias against women having sex is that sex is a TWO WAY PROJECT.  Look at ALL THOSE HUSSIES having SO MUCH SEX… good thing the boys weren’t vamping around like those Whores, we’d have a sex epidemic on our hands!

I’ve been privvy to a number of male conversations about the difference between the Floozies you fuck on the way to the woman you marry.  I think the idea here is that a guy runs around in his 20’s with the Trollops until he meets his pure, lovely bride who’s been chastely waiting for him to devote his seed solely to her life long dream of procreation, despite the fact that it’s been spread over half the world’s continents by now.

How does this work though, considering the act of sex requires both a male and a female? Is there one tramp girl taking it on behalf of all the other pure girls?  I’ve done my math on this and if boys have slept with 4 times as many women as their counterparts (let’s say 1:4 or 2:8, 3:12 or 10:40), a fifth of the female population (we could call them Strumpets) is sleeping with thirteen times as many men as the rest of us just to make that possible.  Excuse me but Oh. My. God.  That’s three times as many as the ‘average’ male.  I’m gonna help you out here guys; when was the last time you met a girl who had slept with three times as many people as you!?  Never?!  That’s cos it doesn’t happen.

Here’s the fact: girls numbers are the same as guys.  Some are high, some are low.  If she’s a slut, so are you.*

So it’s become my little pet project to balance out the English language with more words for male slut.  Here’s what I have so far:

  • Clap Rat; I can’t take full credit for this, it was a brainchild born from a boozy dinner with some very creative ladies in Barcelona.  I leave the origins of this to your imagination.
  • Flaggart; It just sounds dirty in a bad way
  • Moucha; This clearly applies to foreign pests who just don’t leave you alone
  • Skank; this is technically a female word but I just feel like it translates really well to those guys you see ‘skanking’ around a club, using their cute, pretty face to surprise a girl with the bad smell of Asshole the next morning.

Ideally of course, it’d be better to just rid the English language of words for male and female slut altogether.  We all know a slut is simply anyone who has more sex partners than you.  And just as I don’t need a derogatory word for someone who drinks more coffee than me, I don’t need one for someone who has more sex than me.

Until then though, Ladies (and enlightened Gentlemen), I bequeath the above words to your witty mouths for use as the occasion arises.

    I think ‘slut’ only is feminine by tradition, but not nec. by strict definition. In Elizabethan English you see the longer form: ‘slattern’ or sometimes ‘a slattern woman’, which implies that there could be a slattern man. It just means ‘unclean.’ My gay male friends use the word slut to talk about one another without hesitation.

    Obviously in modern society applying ‘slut’ only to women is just a manifestation of a sexist double standard, but in the past (or even in the present in cultures where contraception isn’t available) it served a useful purpose. Like most attitudes and taboos that are common across different cultures, it was a social adaptation that picked up where biological evolution left off.

    BTW, the original list: Pimp, gigolo, player –
    how about letch, lecher, Casanova, back-door man, and lothario?

    the new list: Clap Rat, Flaggart; Moucha; Skank –
    “flaggart” sounds to me like a false slut- like a “flagrant braggart” who tells his buddies about exploits that he never really had regardless of the damage to the girls’ reputations

      Ahh where were you when I needed you! I should have thought to check with the gays, DUH. I absolutely agree with Flaggart. And am taking Letch mainstream
