How to use whore in a sentence?

  1. John Gay:

    A fox may steal your hens, Sir, a whore your health and pence, Sir, your daughter rob your chest, Sir, your wife may steal your rest, Sir, a thief your goods and plate. But this is all but picking, with rest, pence, chest and chicken; it ever was decreed, Sir, if lawyer's hand is feed, Sir, he steals your whole estate.

  2. Edward Dahlberg:

    What men desire is a virgin who is a whore.

  4. Cicely Tyson:

    After that, I was offered the part of another whore and I said no because I didn’t want to get typecast and because it was demeaning to Black women.

  5. Monica Lewinsky:

    Now I admit I made mistakes — especially wearing that beret — but the attention and judgment that I received — not the story, but that I personally received — was unprecedented, i was branded as a tramp, tart, slut, whore, bimbo and, of course, 'that woman.' I was known by many, but actually known by few. I get it. It was easy to forget 'that woman' was dimensional and had a soul.
