"White women are more sexually open, than other races"; where did this stereotype originate?

NOTE: This is a question that I always wanted to ask but never had the words right to ask it on this site. Pardon me if I sound offensive, because that not my intent with this question. The "white girls are more slutty", "white girls are more sexually open and will experiment more", etc (in comparison to females of other races)... ... ... ...is a stereotype that definitely goes around in USA minority communities (not sure about other demographics). I know this type of talk circulates fairly often for a fact, because I'm a black male, thus I'm a part of that demographic. ----- My question to all of you is: where did this stereotype come from or originate? Do you think there is some truth to the statement that white females, compared to other races of women, on average... ... ...are more sexually open and are less "impaired" in regards to show and demonstrate their sexual preferences? Vote and reply as much as you like, sharing thoughts and experiences about yourself or others so we can fully understand your point of view. ----- P.S. Feel free to guess the Pokemon! :-P

  • I've heard of this before from Hispanic males and females, but surprisingly I've also heard that Asians are up there too. I think it's the fact that the majority of girls doing p*rn are Caucasian. It has to do a lot with the history and culture of the area. American white women started to be more liberal in the 1920's. That's when you started to first see a more open sexualization of women from previous times. Women were becoming more and more independent during this time, which is a value that most American people have. Cultures who do not value and teach on independence, like Hispanic and Asian, tend to have very strict gender roles. Women stayed covered up and in the kitchen and there was no need to be independent when taking care of a family. There is a correlation between independence and sexual liberty among women.

    Nowadays, we have Americanized Asians and Americanized Hispanics and the whole independence idea is too widespread to say that it's just white women who are more sexually liberated.

    Across the world, it all depends on what technology people have access to. A lot of 3rd world countries who do not have access to the internet, or cable, will not be sexualized because they have no access to p*rn. It is not customary to talk about sex, or to even find educational material about sex, so more than likely their mindset will be more innocent. Also, they have more things to worry about than sex. All of my female cousins in Mexico, I have a lot, waited for marriage because it is the custom there. I am sure the story is different in the bigger cities.

    Media has so much power on what people say. The majority of women they show on U.S. television are white, be it in a sexualized light or not sexualized, and so it's no wonder that they start these kinds of stereotypes.

  • White people in general are more likely to be more tolerant of sexually permissive behavior and can sometimes border into sexual deviancy

    Most sex offenders are white

    The FBI profile of the average rapist is white

    Ever notice the difference between white and black p*rn sites? Whites are more likely to be aroused by deviant stuff and try to normalize it.

    The only other minority that's really nasty like that are Asians, especially the Japanese.

    When I was in middle school most girls wasn't giving head unless they came from abused backgrounds so the guys sought out white girls because they had no problem doing it.white girls been giving head since age 12. They just don't see anything wrong with it. I'm not racist, some of my friends are white but I'm just being honest

  • Oh god. I swear this is like an everyday conversation at work. personally the white girls I know have high morals an will not settle for anything but the best and good on them. A lot of colored races from arbian, pakistani, Indian, to black races get bad mouthed in the uk because some silly girls think its okay to say all white girls are hoes and so on. personally if an arabian girl or Asian pakistani Indian girl is caught with any guy and is from a strict family she's pretty much dead so all the guys tend to go for any other race. And with black lads I don't think they are exclusive to white. basically what I'm saying is. 9 times out of 10 the person who is saying white girls are sluts is probabbly someones whos either racists or someone whos jelouse that the guy chose you over her.

  • well, I'm leaning towards the opinion that racism is actually something of an instinct. I have no evidence for this, but it is my guess. Yes, it is taught, but the reason it catches on so easily is because there is some instinctive desire in all of us to hate the people of other tribes anyway. That's the way our species has lived for the last million years, not counting the last couple thousand (you can't erase a million years of instinct development with a couple thousand years of civilization..)

    Anyway, the point is that when it comes to men opposing each other, violence is our default answer - it's ugly, but simple enough to explain.

    But for women the thing that seems to damage them the most is if you attack their reputation. So, it would make some sense if within any given culture/race the popular rumor was that the women of other cultures/races were more promiscuous than your own - assuming, of course, that promiscuity is considered damaging to their reputation (which seems to be the case - I don't know why).

    I have no reasonable measure of evidence for this, although it is true that I am white and have heard many white girls explain that girls of other races/countries were generally more promiscuous than themselves.

    Unfortunately, all of this reputation warring is nonsense. There are not nearly enough promiscuous girls to consider them a representation of any race, country, or culture. I have met none, in my lifetime. Zero. It would be nice if some rumor of promiscuous women were true, though..

  • There are so many confounding factors to this one, that I can't see a poll (especially here!) providing any real clarity for you. That said, it did occur to me that, in the US, very much in general, non-white cultures may be more conservative and that might lead to the ridiculous misapprehension that "white girls are more slutty" (i.e., by comparison). Of course there are countless exceptions, individuals obviously vary enormously, but that's the only thing that I can think of that might account for this.

    Actually one other thing may be a factor: Individuals who are interested in dating outside of their own skin color/culture/whatever, may be less conservative than the "average" girl within a social group. To use a deliberately contrary example, imagine a black girl who is really into Latino men. She may actively seek them out and be quite willing to form relationships temporary or not. That's going to give the impression fairly quickly that "all black women are easy." The point being that a few individuals could skew the general impression pretty quickly.

  • Every race of guys swears another race of girls are more sexually open

    black guys swear it's white girls while white guys swear it's Asian

    • False

  • I've never heard this.

    So, no stereotype. Just a random collection of words.

  • I think it has more to do with location than with race. I would agree 100% with dudemans comment that western women in general be it white, black, asian, Hispanic etc are more sexually open than other areas of the world.

  • Sex and the City.

    That show earned its place in the history books by having a significant influence in today's modern woman.

  • link

    That was the first one I hit, I'm sure there are others.

    Quite a few studies suggest white women give and receive oral sex more often then black women or Hispanic women, and engage in anal sex a little more often though some Hispanic communities its quite common. On the other hand they had fewer partners.

    Why is more complicated, but there seems to be some truth to it.

    I also, personally, think there's another factor at play. I've noticed that many, many people swear women of races other then their own are more open minded. I wonder if they're right. Specifically, I wonder if people who have sex outside their race are more open to a wider variety of sexual activities. Maybe they're just less conservative in general. Maybe they have a higher innate threshold for liking variety. Who knows. But I think that may be a factor in how people talk.

  • From what I've heard, white girls are a lot less open sexually than minorities with the possible exception of Asian women.

  • I've never heard about this stereotype so I'm calling 100% bs.

  • I don't fit into that stereotype then, lol. I haven't done anything in my life.

  • I have honestly never heard that statement.

  • No this stereotype have many faces. "Black women are more sexually open." "Latino women are more sexually open." "No one wants to know what those freaky Germans are doing in bed when they are home from those disturbing p*rn videos."

    The only logical conclusion is people that intentionally look for the other "race" (if you want to call it that) may be more sexually open minded. Perhaps as a direct result because most prude girls would not even think about the thought of dating a guy of another skin color.

  • I'll fix this:

    "AMERICAN women are more sexually open than women from other places, regardless of their race"

    • ill correct it again western women

  • I have never once heard that. I call BS.

  • i notice that whites not all, but most the be more sexually open than other races

  • most likely...

    from my experiences I noticed that white girls are a lot more flexible to it, while black girls are more high expecting, Asian girls are more quieter and as usual Hispanic girls are a lot more conniving over it

  • It's true because they drink A LOT more.

  • According to studies I've read by race, black, latin, white and then Asian girls are most slutty in that order, if you base it on average number of sexual partners. That's how I would define it as well. Compare Asian culture to African American culture and ask yourself which one if more sexually permissive on average? Why is that? The average black family isn't a family, due to the man not being in the picture 70% of the time. Asian families, on the other hand, tend to have the man in the picture, which he often encourages the girls in the family not to be so sexually promiscuous and marry a stand-up man.

    There's a reason why the average Asian is so far better off than the average black, it is because their family structures are set on making sure the female sexuality doesn't get out of control, whereas if you look at your average black girl (more so in the inner city) she is far more promiscuous. Out-of-wedlock births, STD' rates and self-reported studies all back this up. As for the white girls, they are more free than Asians as a whole, but more constricted than blacks/latins.

    Of course, individuals of every race can choose to act however they would like, but we're talking about the big picture here. If you study the data, white girls are somewhere in the middle in terms of being sexually restricted/open/slutty/however you want to define it. A lot of it depends upon how they were raised, what type of city they live in, if they a good relationship with their father, etc. It is a complex issue.

    • Why so many downvotes? I actually agree with this answer - it makes a lot of sense.

    • Because some people are uncomfortable with unpleasant truths.

    • As a black male, let me chime in on this answer. The family structure of the black culture, on average, being less likely to have two parents, is a sad statistical fact. In economically depressed areas, that "family impeding doom upon you" is a pressure that many urban black families just don't have compared to Asian families. The stats you use, whether they're on a grand-scale across the USA or focused solely on economically depressed areas, is a HUGE gray area. That's how people got offend
