My sister likes to question my choice of women needless to say and weve been having a heated discussion on this topic. I hope this doesnt get closed because im curious on 'standards'. Im obviously not calling anyone here a whore so maybe this isnt too racy.

So if a woman likes to date alot of guys, but doesnt offically call them a boyfriend (just seeing someone), is she a whore? Or does it depend on if she is seeing alot of guys at once or one after the other? IE, if its one after the other shes not, but if like 5 guys at once seeing who matches up, that makes her the whore?

Basically, in todays age, woman can be considered a whore when compared to lifestyle choices back in the day. Now that times are a changing has the bar been raised?

For me a whore is a girl that sees alot of guys openly, is open about it, doesnt try to protect her image, and does everything possible to get laid or whatever asap, even with someone they just met. For instance in public theyre all over someone they just met or openly allow friends to question or comment on their promiscuity.

So anyone have any thoughts? Typing it all out makes me feel Im defending someone who shouldnt be getting my support :lol:

Woman seeing guys = whore
Guy seeing women = stud

A "whore" is someone who frequently lowers standards in exchange for something. In the sexual context, a whore would be someone who has sex with people to get attention or become popular or advance in his/her career. If a woman has sex with a lot of guys simply because she likes having sex and doesn't really give a shit what prudes like you think about it, she's not necessarily a whore; she's just promiscuous.

:lol: Are you calling me the prude or just in general? I dont see how I make myself seem the prude. I swear das whenever I make a thread here in the other section theres always a little jab from you :D I never considered the exchange for something though that is the root of the word whore.

However does that make the seeing of multiple men at once as just being promiscuous and no longer in the whore standard? How about, would a whore go out of her way to make sure she is not seen as a whore, or would there be a form of self aware guilt that makes her feel she has to defend something she is or isnt?

"Whore" has a negative connotation, so people use it to refer to women who do things they find unseemly, but if there's nothing to be gained from the behavior (money, power, influence, attention, whatever), I don't think the term accurately applies. I think there are subtle differences between sluts and whores, much like the differences between geeks and nerds. Note that a whore will likely sleep with a geek or nerd, but a slut probably won't.

Ravenous

Depends on the kind of whore.

Forget all that, though. Here's a simple definition:

If you're a woman, a whore is someone who is prettier than you are. If you're a man, a whore is someone who sleeps with everyone but you.

Since you are wondering based on what another woman thinks is a whore (your sister) then we must use this definition of whore

Whore (via female) - Anyone who looks better, is more popular, has more money, dresses better, has a better job, or gets more attention from men than the speaker

Ravenous
11-19-06, 02:50 AM
Ahhh Slut. Something strangley missing from my (or mine and my sis) vocabulary. das you hit the nail in the head saying a whore will likely sleep with a geek or nerd, but a slut probably won't.

Therefore referring to a woman as a whore shouldnt be accurate unless there is some type of payment or rewards for her, whereas a slut thinks of herself as having standards.

What are the subtle differences between them though?

yeah whores do it for money

sluts do it because they like it ;)


That being said, most women are whores, they just won't admit it. If or once they sleep with a guy (many times before), it is now expected that said guy will buy them things or pay their bills or something.

I have known girls in both categories, sluts are far more fun :)

Whore --> Name you call a woman who won't sleep with you. ;)

A whore obviously does it for money.

"a woman who engages in promiscuous sexual intercourse, usually for money; prostitute; harlot; strumpet."

Shall I next start a thread looking for the definition of enervate or any other word I wonder about? ;)

I think a whore does it for something that people consider of value, not just money. Status, meals, trips, etc.

Her object is to get something out of the deal other than a 50-50 relationship or casual fun.

...or a slut, like Meredith Grey. ;)

I agree with your definition. I would also add that a golddigger (any woman who dates or marries for money/goods/services) is a whore.

This calls for more RESEARCH!!!

I can see the ad in the paper now:

Are you a slut? Are you a whore? We need you for a scientific research project. Travel expenses paid.

The ones that don't put out until you reimburse their travel expenses will be the whores.

Isn't a whore a woman who gets paid to have sex with you? If you aren't paying for sex with a woman who has sex with lots of guys, she's probably just a slut or a skank, but not a whore.

Women do things that I don't think men will do, Take a music concert for instance, if there's a really popular band in concert women will give head to roadies just so they can get backstage and give head to the band. You would never see a bunch of guys at a pussycat dolls show who would eat the pussy of a bunch of big sweaty female roadies so they could meet the band. And look at those girls gone wild videos, do you think if a group of women with camcorders went up to guys at springbreak and offered them a free t shirt to pull their cock out for the cameras they would do it, I don't think so. Women put out, or give head because they want a guy to like them or they want to be popular. Guys fuck because we want to. I don't think there's ever been a time in a guys life where he was dating a woman and she said, you know if you really loved me you would eat my pussy, and then he did it so she wouldn't leave or cheat on him.

I beg to differ. I think if they were HOT women, and/or flashed the guys....they'd do it. A video-taped version of, "I'll show you mine, if you show me yours".

"gets paid" is a very general term. I know women who 'date' guys because they are rich. They put out so they can enjoy the spoils of the bank account. That is pretty whore-ish, even though it isn't a direct cash interaction.

Technically, a whore is someone who sells sex, or someone who sells his or her good name and reputation.

Some people extend that to women who sell sexual excitement but not resolution, such as porn actresses, nude photo models, dominatrixes, and strippers.

From there, some people extend it to women who seem to offer the possibility of sex, or pretend to do so, by provocative dress, provocative (flirty) behavior, a history of many sexual partners, or a history of low standards.

I have heard teenage girls called whores because they were wearing midriff blouses and low-slung jeans. Of course, by this time you're dealing more with the insecurities of the speaker than the actions of the girls.

A sense of indiscriminate availability seems to be essential to the idea. A woman who has a long-term sexual relationship with a man in exchange for money is a mistress. She's generally treated with greater respect than a whore.

BTW, a slut used to be a female dog, the same as a bitch.

This double standard is easy to understand in terms of evolution - females don't want to get pregnant by men who won't support her and their offspring.
Actually, there's a theory put forth buy the anthropologist Sarah Blaffer Hrdy in her book "The Woman That Never Evolved" the female promiscuity did have an evolutionary advantage. The idea in a nutshell is that if a female has several partners, paternity is in doubt. In that case, each partner knows that the offspring may be his, so the woman essentially has more providers, and there are more males looking out for the offspring, as opposed to trying to harm then. It's been a while since I read it, but it was a very interesting read.

-p

Those are called "Gold Diggers" and the men they date are "Sugar Daddies".

Doesn't make the chicks whores, though, because a whore makes her living at being paid for sex. A gold digger simply enjoys the perks of a rich boyfriend, and won't necessarily have sex with him all the time. In fact, she may hold out on the sex for bigger and better gifts from her sugar daddy.

Of course then there's the fine distinction between being paid to have sex, and those who are paid to make porn movies. Apart from Ron Jeremy, I have heard most porn stars don't enjoy having sex with everyone, and that's what fluffers are for. But that's another discussion.

Ok so there should be more stict line when refering to a particular woman as a whore or slut. Kinda like when using the right 'theyre' or 'their'

Ok so where does to the word hoe fit it? Is whore considered the root of hoe or is it a middle ground created to cover up particulars or is it simply slang that cannot be placed in a category.

I knew my sister was wrong calling the girl I was with a whore :lol:

A whore receives money or other payment for sex. I hate that double standard shit, recently my niece had been seeing a couple of guys within weeks of each other. My father's calling her a whore, hello, she's 18. I bet when my brother was 18, he was having sex with anything that moved. Of course girls like to throw whore around too. One friend of mine calls anyone skinny a whore, just cause she's jealous.

And look at those girls gone wild videos, do you think if a group of women with camcorders went up to guys at springbreak and offered them a free t shirt to pull their cock out for the cameras they would do it, I don't think so. I don't think there's ever been a time in a guys life where he was dating a woman and she said, you know if you really loved me you would eat my pussy, and then he did it so she wouldn't leave or cheat on him.

I was watching an old Jamie Kennedy ep the other day & they did get some guys to expose themselves in a takeoff on the girls gone wild thing, guys gone nuts, then they even got them to agree to act gay just to appear in it.

I've never heard the pussy thing, but maybe I'll try it sometime & let you know how it goes. lol

A whore is any women who uses her sexuality as a weapon of control over you, then saying you will never be good enough for her because you have never had sex.

Nick Danger
11-20-06, 09:58 AM
Bluelitespecial, I think that's a bitch.

A bitch uses her sexuality as a weapon, or abuses the social advantages that women are given that men aren't. For example, a bitch will say things that, if a man said them, would get him hit.

There are about six things that can classify whoreness/sluttiness/etc.

1) A girl who screws around with guys she just met or barely knows (like hooking up with a guy at the bar or at a party). I would classify this as "easy".

2) A girl who screws around with a lot of guys. I would say this is a "slut".

3) A girl who has no standards, and will screw around with just about anyone. Also a "slut" IMO (or maybe a "skank"?) This one will almost always be #1 and #2 as well.

4) A girl who uses sex specifically to get something other than the pleasure of it, from someone who is not a significant other. This I would consider a "whore".

5) A girl who repeatedly cheats on her significant other. A "slutwhore", perhaps?

6) A girl who knowingly (or purposely) sleeps with someone's elses significant other. Usually referred to as a "homewrecker".
