Hey guys, Can you help me find meaning of "be a sport" according to this context:
5 boys want to have s*e*x with 1 girl, and she(Pauline) said: I wo'nt do that,
one of boys says: Come on, Pauline, be a sport.
I can't realize the meaning of "be a sport" !
I really appreciate if you help me out.
I am not a teacher.
'A sport' is someone who behaves as others would like them to, in adverse situations.
If you are being made fun of, and react badly, or people want you to do something that you don't want to do, they could say, 'Come on, be a sport'.
I'm not sure if having sex with five boys is a good example of being a sport, though.
