In Greek and Roman mythology, a nymph is a nature spirit in the guise of an attractive maiden. Inhabiting forests, fields, caves, mountains, lakes, the sea, nymphs often suffered the attentions of men, notably those of the gods; the free-spirited Daphne turned herself into a laurel tree to avoid Apollo's amorous advances.

Today, "nymph(ette)" refers to a sultry but too-young girl or to a nymphomaniac, a woman who has an insatiable sexual appetite (i.e., a woman who has the sexual drive of a man).
The nymph Calypso, selfishly thinking of her own desires, kept the miserable, long-suffering Odysseus on her island as a prisoner, hoping to win his love, ignoring that he wanted to return to his family.

Being sexually active with many different people. Depending on its use, it can be good or bad.

Men, as they have usually set the standards, are rarely regarded/looked down upon as promiscuous. Women, on the other hand, aren't so lucky, despite that the tide is turning in their favor.

Still, sexual behavior has little, if anything, to do with someone as a person. Somebody can be very active sexually and yet be caring and thoughtful at the same time... although it doesn't apply to everyone.
Britney Spears has a reputation for being promiscuous. She's the epitome of the vamp... or slut, as I should probably say.

How many men/women does a woman have to sleep with to be concidered promiscuous? 10? 7? 5? 3? 2? 1?

Promiscuous women are (often unfairly) known as harlots, sluts, and whores, among other things.

How many men/women does a man have to sleep with to be concidered promiscuous? 10? 50? 100? 500? 2,000?

Promiscuous men are usually known as studs... or lechers or dirty old men, depending on the age of the man or who he is.

A highly versatile word in the English language.

Mistakenly thought to have come from an acronym "Fornication Under Consent of the King", the word most likely of native English origin, and is almost certainly of Germanic origin; Middle Dutch fokken (to thrust, copulate, or to breed), dialectical Norwegian fukka (to copulate), and dialectical Swedish focka (to strike, copulate) and fock (penis).

The word originally meant "to strike", "to thrust". Possibly becoming a euphamism for an older verb meaning "to copulate/breed" (likely from hyebh-; Sanskrit (yabhati) and the Slavic languages (Russian yebat`, Polish jebac)), the term took on the current meaning "to copulate".

The verb also means "to put into an impossible situation" in today's world ("You fucked us up!"), or as high praise ("fuckin' awesome!")

Even still, "fuck" is used as an expression of hate ("Fuck you!"), despite that copulation is really a pleasurable thing.

An insult or an explitive, addressing somebody who sleeps (ie. has sex with) one's mother. Often used to describe someone that you hate, but it's also used among close friends as a term of affection.

Still, in a way, a father, stepfather, or stepmother is a motherfucker; who else would be fucking one's mother?
Son: "'Sup, motherfucker?"

Father: "I'm your father! Don't talk to me like that!"

Son: "I meant literally. How else do you think I got here?"

(Of women) Full-figured. Often quite busty and ample-bodied. Also see "real women".
There was a time when voluptuous, buxom ladies were worshipped... but now anorexic women are admired instead.

A femme fatale character in movies or books. The character is a woman who, while not necessarily attractive, has a certain allure (usually this striking, exotic, overtly sexy glamour), and is usually a heartless, man-eating seductress.

The term is short for vampire, another term for a femme fatale.
In drama, the vamp is the sexual counterpoint for the naive, wholesome ingenue character.

The sultry lower voice of the mezzo-soprano is usually reserved for the vamp character in musicals or opera.

From the medieval European belief that royalty and nobility had blue blood; the elite had enough power and wealth that they could afford to have peasants and the urban poor do their dirty work for them- since the aristocrats were able to stay inside and avoid long hours in the fields (and the sunlight), they were often so pale that their blue veins showed under their translucent skin, thus leading people to believe that their blood was blue.

Now it generally refers to people from old money: families who have been wealthy aristocrats for generations on generations.
The blue blood elite have long been discouraged from intermarrying with commoners, lest their pure bloodlines be contaminated, ignoring the degenerative effects of inbreeding.
