One who can simultaneously maintain a reputation of respectability and extreme degeneracy.
These individuals are known to some as upstanding professionals, to others as party-animals with deviant tendencies, and known to a select group (typically comprised entirely of other respectable-degenerates) as both. The ability to know how to behave amongst different groups and individuals is a requirement for successful respectable-degeneracy.
I went out with my boss last night and we got blackout drunk at a club. Today we are both back at work and looking fresh. Everyone in the office thinks we are consummate professionals, only she and I know that we are both actually respectable-degenerates.

A person with multiple personalities; a professional/respectable persona as well as a wild and extreme persona (often related to substances and the opposite sex). This person has mastered the ability to know when and where to display each persona. With some people they are respectable and professional, with others they are hard-partying and raucous.

Respectable-degenerates tend to show both personalities, only to other respectable-degenerates.
She is so smooth that many people think she is a prim and proper lady. Her friends see her on nights out and on vacation when she gets properly crazy. We know she is a complete respectable-degenerate.

My boss and I were out at the bars and clubs last night. He was doing all kinds of drugs and trying to hook up. Today we are both in the office looking fresh. Everyone in the office thinks he is totally professional, only the two of us know what a respectable-degenerate he is.
