Pejorative term for a sexually deviant male. Current usage has shaded into implying a pedophile but the older meaning was a homosexual or effeminate male. The transition in meaning has occurred as homosexuality has become more acceptable but pedophilia has become less so.

Etymology: Nance, from Nancy. The female name applied derisively to a male expressed the speakers opinion of his taking or deserving a female or inferior role. Also Nancy-boy, Miss Nancy, Miss Molly, Nauncy, Naunce, Nanny-boy.

Variants of this term date back to at least the mid-nineteenth century and probably much earlier.
The charge was elevenpence, but it was a dark, evil-smelling place, and a notorious haunt of the 'nancy-boys.' Downstairs, in the murky kitchen, three ambiguous-looking youths in smartish blue suits were sitting on a bench apart, ignored by the other lodgers." George Orwell, "Down and Out in Paris

1.) Slang term for a person who has committed crimes of a sexual nature, particularly pedophilia, esp. in the United Kingdom. Comes from the acronym used in prisons to describe said individuals: Not On Normal Communal Exercise. Also used occasionally as a general insult, regardless of the tendencies of the person to whom the word is applied.

2). Also, somewhat obscurely, a term meaning 'the present or particular occasion.'
1). 'Ere, this nonce pedobear is in for right ear-boxing if 'e don't stay away from the main prison population.

-or-

Ay, mate, what say you lend a chap 5 quid, eh? No? Oh, what a right nonce you are!

2). I say old chap, it appears that I have been incarcerated because pedophilia is rather illegal for the nonce. Fortunately for sexual deviants, the legislation is becoming more and more lenient as time goes by in good old Great Britain.
