Isn't "pervert" just the male equivalent of "slut"?

If not, what would make a better word for it?

As a side note, do you think that one is better or worse than the other?

An anon here in the comments gave me what I think is a good description of the word "pervert", that I personally also think applies to "slut": Slut = someone with obsessive or abnormal sexual interests. Pervert = someone with obsessive or abnormal sexual interests.

  • A pervert isn't someone who's sexually promiscuous, which is what a slut or fuck boy is.

    A pervert is someone who has bizarre, unusual and sometimes illegal sexual desires. A pedophile wants to have sex with underage children. Often VERY young children. That is illegal AND bizarre. Some men want to sit in pies or cakes to have erections and sexual completion. That is a perversion. Dressing up as an adult baby is a fetish or perversion.

    None of those things has to do with the number of times you have sex. That is what sluts and fuck boys are about. They are people who have sex anytime, anywhere with anyone. This might be a sexual ADDICTION. But not a perversion.

    • Hmm, I don't disagree with you, but I think the meaning of the words are changing.

    • No. You mean people are MISUSING the words as defined correctly. And people fling around the word "pervert" and always have to tease friends. "you are so pervy" to want Gina or Fred. That's another meaning. As people used to say, "man you are retarded." Never, ever meant you are medically below average in intelligence. Meant you are acting as if you are. i. e. You are acting as if stupid. My pet peeve misuse by weather forecasters: "The Temperature is Cold today!" Nope. Temperatures are NUMBERS. Numbers cannot be hot or cold. WEATHER is hot or cold. Temperatures are HIGH or LOW. It's ignorance. Don't use words ignorantly. Whether you hear them used that way or not.

    • Alright, misused then. But that misuse can lead to official definitions of words sometimes being changed. It's happened before, a lot, and I think it's going to be the same case with these two words.

  • It really depends on how you take the words to mean. Society as a whole is a joke on a lot of words, different segments and people apply different meanings to words. One cannot simply say that others are right or wrong as it is always changing.

    I see slut as meaning a girl who likes sex... I will often say there are man-sluts too.

    I see perverts as people who tend to like seeing someone nude, but having nothing to with little kids or pedophilia as that is a better term to apply to that.

    Perversion could be considered liking abnormal sexual acts and such, but then what again is abnormal? What is normal today could of been abnormal 10 or 20 years ago.

    All that really matters is what you think and those you are communicating with so that your on the same page.

  • How often do sluts chase after little boys and try to fondle their fudgies, or sneak into the men's room so they can take pictures or videos of guys taking a piss, or jill-off and leave their cum in a guys underwear or, walk the streets in a rain coat and flash people walking by?

    • Couldn't say, but while I might call those people perverts, I don't think that's the definitive version of a pervert.

    • Well then, does a pervert simply go around fucking anything in a skirt with a pulse that'll stand still long enough?

    • I could see some perverts doing that, sure.

  • No, a woman can be a pervert and not a slut.

    pervert. noun [ C ] /ˈpɜr·vərt/ a person whose sexual behavior is considered unnatural and morally wrong.

    slut
    /slət/

    noun
    1.
    OFFENSIVE
    a woman who has many casual sexual partners.

    • I mean first of all I don't think "slut" is always used offensively at all, and secondly, definitions of words change a lot. I don't think that there has ever been a complete agreement of what defines a slut.

  • Slut boy just sounds so gay

  • no I don't think so.

  • "Pervert" is what judgmental prudes call people who like being different.

    They think it's an insult, but it's always just their own bias and ignorance screaming out for them.

  • Nope. It's a "player".

    • Hmm, so you also go with the definition of "slut" where it just means having lots of casual sexual partners, I'm guessing?

    • "Just"? That's exactly what a slut is. The antecedent is Slattern, which can mean a slovenly woman, sometimes attached to prostitution. My guess is that you want to expand "your truth" to any person who behaves in an "intimate" manner that you don't like.

    • Sorry, didn't see your message. Not at all. I've listed what I've perceived the words to mean, generally speaking, and if we were to go by that particular definition, I like sluts. The meaning of words change and evolve all the time, and I think "slut" is one such word that has changed a lot lately. "Pervert" too.

  • Nope their not the same thing. A slut is just sleeping around with a lot of people while a pervert is a person who has abnormal sexual behaviors.

  • Slut has no equivalent for guys. Only girls can be sluts

  • Nope, you can be a pervert without being a slut, and and maybe vice versa. I love my perverted man but he's all mine and I'm all his, so neither of us are sluts.

  • No, they are different. A slut is someone who sleeps around casually with lots of different partners, whereas a pervert is someone whose sexual interests and behaviors are considered weird or abnormal. My fiancée is delightfully perverted, but she's no slut.

    Personally I think the term slut applies equally to both sexes, but guys are more often called fuck boys. It means the same thing and is equally bad.

  • No, not the same thing.
    Slut = someone who sleeps around.
    Pervert = someone with obsessive or abnormal sexual interests.

    • Really? In my mind, a slut is just your description of a pervert.
