This is OlderThanFeudalism, due to the historical sexual DoubleStandard. This is partly explained by mere biology. A man can impregnate multiple women a day while a woman can only get pregnant once every nine months. Therefore, base animal reproductive instinct dictates that men should be having sex with as many women as possible while women should be very selective in choosing their mates in order to ensure that only the best genes are passed on to the next generation. [[note]]But then again, if men don't take care of their children they may easily die before they have offsprings of their own--so the man's genes won't be passed on. And it would also be useful to pick only females with good genes to increase the chances of the survivial and reproduction of their children. Picking women with "bad" genes to have kids with might lead to falling in love with them and thus still "wasting" a lot of efffort to raise a child with her. Women, on the other hand, may have a--evolutionary speaking--high interest in not wasting too much time on the "wrong" man, so they may profit from "testing" men or having more than one man being attatched to them. The whole falling in love thing lasting only a limited time (the lovestruck part which more likely leads to sexual desire) is, evolutionary speaking, basically a compromise between staying together long enough to raise a child and not wasting top much time on a "bad" mate for both sexes. So the main point in the "My girl is not a slut" is probably a cultural thing.[[/note]] Of course, with all of the birth control methods available, the majority of sex people are having now is purely for recreation, not reproduction, but the association persists. Plus, a sexually active but irresponsible woman is far more at risk than a man in a similar position. If she gets pregnant and daddy's just a GlorifiedSpermDonor, she's the one stuck with a fatherless child, while a man who ''is'' willing to care for his wife and children would feel rightfully screwed[[note]]or, considering what we're talking about, unscrewed[[/note]] if [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe he finds out he isn't really the daddy]].

* ComicBook/SheHulk in her current series sleeps with quite a few other supers (who else is going to survive, really? Woman of Gamma, man of Kleenex) and has some issues with this trope. She's very irritated whenever people ask about her night with Juggernaut, then a member of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} but still a known a supervillain (this has since been retconned into her genuinely not sleeping with him). She also asks Tony Stark how he gets away with sleeping around (while in bed with him).

For the last few hundred or more years, sexually active men have often been admired for their virility and sexual "conquests" (unless he is a cad, or [[UnusualEuphemism picking only low hanging fruit]])[[note]]It's not like things were always been that way for everyone. Culture in [[UsefulNotes/DynastiesFromShangToQing Ming Dynasty China]], for instance, held that a man was manly either by being a chaste warrior or an incredibly promiscuous and scholarly/cultured [[{{bishounen}} pretty-boy]]. One's life expectancy was supposed to be ''radically'' shorter if one was in the latter category, in part because medical science speculated that male ejaculation entailed transferring some of one's finite store of (male) life force to the receiver (which is why male masturbation was avoided by anyone with good sense), but largely because of all the jealous lovers and husbands.[[/note]] while a sexually active woman is more likely to be seen as being a trashy whore. For a man, the loss of his virginity is an achievement. For a woman, it is a surrender or, if outside of marriage, a filthy defilement. This probably has something to do with how a man can have hundreds of partners without any discernible consequence, whereas a woman in the same position would most likely be irreversibly changed into a mother forever.

* Played with in ''GoodnessGraciousMe'', the skit show from the people who later made ''The Kumars at Number 42''. A Pakastani woman is telling another that she heard the other's son was sleeping around. The other begins to defend him, but soon changes tactics - "My son is a stud!" - and goes on to describe his manly sexual exploits.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/RedZoneCuba'', VillainProtagonist Griffin nearly strangles one of his companions to death after the man reads aloud a newspaper article talking about a woman forced to prostitute herself after her husband was sent to jail. Naturally, Griffin ''is'' that husband, but the guy reading the newspaper had no way of knowing that; it's just another violent outburst that only serves to undermine the film's attempts to sell Griffin as a victim of circumstance.

** On the other hand, fandom took this and ran away with it FAR more than canon. One of the biggest reasons of the hate against Ginny that goes on among fans ([[DieForOurShip specially if they're Hermione/Harry fans]]) is her supposed "sluttiness" and wanton ways of having... 3 boyfriends in 2 years (and actually [[spoiler:marrying the third one]])! Never mind that dating is ''[[TruthInTelevision extremely]]'' common in real life, and most girls date ''many'' guys, often times ''without'' ever sleeping with them, especially when they're as young as or even younger than Ginny, before they finally marry the man of their dreams. Also never mind that Hermione was the one who suggested that Ginny date other people to get over Harry.

* Bernard Marx and John the Savage in ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'' are both bothered by the promiscuity of Lenina (who Bernard was with for a time, and who John pines for). However, this being a society where everyone is conditioned to accept that MyGirlIsASlut, their attitudes are seen as abnormal.

(To compound the ValuesDissonance Lenina is seen as rather ''conservative'' in her promiscuity, and is considered a little weird for sleeping with Henry too often.)
