There's a noun applied to men that are considered sexy: stud. He's such a stud! In fact, it's so overused that people may have forgotten where the term first originated.
It has to do with horses.
Horseracing is an unusual sport. Only the very rich can afford to horserace, as horses are worth in the millions of dollars that can race well. The idea is to breed fast horses so they can be raced. People claim that genetic engineering for superior humans is immoral, but they've been breeding horses as long as there was horseracing. People breed all sorts of animals, especially if there's money involved.
A horse may have value by winning races, but a horse can also have value as a sire, being put out to stud, basically having sex with mares. Thus, Big Brown, the winner of two of the three events in the Triple Crown may find more value as a stud, if the offsprings are fast horses.
To put a horse to stud, is essentially making a male whore out of him, and having him bed as many female horses, the horse equivalent to Wilt Chamberlain, the star basketball player who claimed to have slept with 20000 women.
So next time you say someone is a stud, or you declare yourself a stud, take a second to remember where the term came from and what it means.
