Term originated in the UK and came to prominence in the 1960's, initially to describe a pimp. In Spanish it means "prince" and could have either been referring to the fancy, over-the-top clothing and jewelry popular with pimps, or because he was surrounded by a harem of women, involved in the underworld, but usually not the actual "king" of the area (he had to pay tribute to use the block or neighborhood).

Now it is generally used to refer to someone (usually a male) who dresses in nicer clothing and acts in a polished fashion; often interchangable with fag or pussy, but not necessarily as derogatory: a ponce is not necessarily homosexual, nor are they necessarily passive or weak, but they would tend to be thought of as metrosexual or gay in their manner of dress.

In the US it also takes a bit of a tone for a poser or wannabe, primarily in the punk, ska, or artsy scenes.

JACK: Tony's a ponce, is that right? I though he just had some sort of magic with the ladies.
TOM: Fuckin' prat, you are.

FRED: Alright, fine.

A British slang word that can be translated into American lingo in several ways.

1. It can be used in the way Americans use the words fag or queer to refer to someone who is:

* A homosexual: "Joe is proud to be a ponce."

* A man who is not homosexual but displays effeminate or overly diva like behaviors: "I wish Joe would stop wearing all that cologne shit. He smells like a bloody ponce."

* As an insult to a man who may not be homosexual and/or effeminate, but is someone you hate: "Joe really pissed me off yesterday with that stunt. If that ponce pulls that shit again today, I'm going to kick his ass."

2. Ponce can be used like the words wuss or pussy to describe someone you feel is weak in some way: "So Joe and I came to blows the other day. He fights like a fucking ponce though so I wasn't hurt in the fight."
Joe is proud of the fact he a ponce.

I wish Joe would stop bathing in cologne. He smells like a bloody ponce.

Joe pissed me off yesterday. If that ponce pulls that shit again, I'm going to kick his ass.

Joe and I got into a fight, but he hits like a total ponce so I wasn't hurt at all.
