Slut is a broad word used to describe women who often have casual sex, without depending on their age, race, or ethnic background. The word is considered to be offensive.[1] It probably comes from the old German word Schlutt "slovenly woman".[2] It could also come from Swedish slata "idle woman, slut".[2] It may have come from Dutch slodder "slut".[2] However, it is not known where it came from for sure.[2] Chaucer uses the word sluttish (late 14c.) to describe a dirty man. However, it is most often used today to describe women, not men.[2] Also, hard pieces in bread because it was not well kneaded were called "slut's pennies".[2]
