    Default How do you call this kind of woman

    Hi, everybody. What do you call a woman who likes to kiss many men (any kind of men) or spend time with them - it doesn't matter if they are rich or not, handsome or ugly, but she just likes to have many partners for pleasure?

    A woman which switches her sexual partner very often. She easily gets together with men who are in a committed relationship, for example.

    Welcome to the forum.

    In BrE, I don't think we have a word for someone who simply kisses lots of people (whether it's men or women). Your use of the word "partners" suggests a sexual relationship.

    A woman who has sex with many different men might be termed a tart, slag, or slut. There are various other terms but all are vulgar and/or slang.

    There isn't a word for a woman who simply likes to spend time with lots of different men.

    "Promiscuous" is the nicest word for a person like this.

    Thanks emsr2d2 and SoothingDave, but tart, slag or slut is very offensive. Is there another word less offensive? Because I said: a woman who has many partners, not always for sex, but she likes not to be involved emottionally or not to have a long relationship. She likes for example: casual pickups. She doesn't care about money. She's mad about men!!!

    Promiscuous is a general idea.

    "Promiscuous" still suggests a sexual relationship, however brief. Are you still looking for a word for someone who simply kisses lots of people?

    Leaving aside the question of language, I, personally, find this sort of discussion distasteful.

    It seems to be OK for males to snog/scr** females to our heart's content but, if a female dares to enjoy physical contact with a male, we have to find a word, generally negative, we can label her with.

    ps: I am not a hypersensitive female - I am 100% male. It just happens that I don't hypocritically feel that our male urges are different from / better than female urges,

    My follow-up question was going to be to ask the OP why they weren't interested in words for promiscuous men. I don't find either topic distasteful (personal opinion) but I agree that some equality needs to be shown if we are going to discuss such things.

    I woman I'd like to meet. That's what I'd call that. Especially if she is Brasileira. Enjoy your linguistic discussion guys ;)

    Not someone...Just women....

    For example, womanizer refers a man who has sexual relationships with many different women. All right?

    But, what do you call a woman who does the same thing? A woman which switches her partners very often? A woman who flirts everybody?

    These answers seem rather sexist from my point of view. Maybe such a woman can be called a libertine.
