He asked me to explain my thoughts on the differences between a slut and a whore. That's too easy. A whore has sex for money/gifts and a slut doesn't.
I'd rather discuss the difference between a slut and a sex addict.
I'll start by tossing out that, in my opinion, sluts are loose girls, who have some boundaries and are somewhat choosy about their partners. They know that at the end of the day, they are accountable for their actions, have to live with the consequences and want to be able to sleep with their conscious at night. They just want to feel loved by someone. *sniff*
On the other hand, I would speculate that sex addicts are less finicky. It seems that they could very well be opportunists with few or no boundaries as to who, when, and where they have sex. Just like any other addict, they are in it for the quick fix and do not care who they hurt with their actions.
