Hello Antonio;Antonio said:Hi Group,
What does "Love Machine" mean? and Native-English-Speakers said some expressions in English like "Get out of here you love machine" or "Johnny The Love Machine" Is this expression consider to be rude or just to make fun of someone?
Yes in my opinion they can be used for the samething..when you are teasing someone...Antonio said:"Love Machine" could be the same thing as "Ladykiller" I mean, when you make fun of someone or when you're teasing someone? or that doesn't necessary apply in this particular context.
Hi Sharon.Sharon said:Antonio,
It might help to remember that a machine never gets tired, never stops to eat, never wants to take a nap, never watches football, and never has a headache !!
Something that might be worth noting.Antonio said:So, "Love Machine" is a synonym of a "Ladykiller" these days, right? Which is more common nowadays?
A woman could also be described as a "love machine." It is not just a "male" reference. It would probably be used more often to describe a man, but that is where the double standard in society comes into play. A man that has sex with a lot of women is a "stud," someone many other men may look up to, and aspire to be. A woman who has sex with a lot of other men...well, they have not so nice names for her.
I think it would depend. Looking at the way society views the roles, it would probably be a complimentary thing to say about a man, and it would depend for the woman. If said alone, at the right time , it might be considered a compliment, but later, after the heat of the moment and during the analysis of what you said, she might privately wonder if you had insulted her. (I think I would.)Sharon, if you call someone a "Love Machine" is consider to be rude? or it depends on the tone of your voice, I mean when you say it?
I think part of it is the things we learned from our elders, whether we knew we were learning them, or not! The "sexual revolution" was not all that long ago. To illustrate my point, I'll tell you a story!Yeah, I don't know why, the studs or the playboy's are the heroes among people specially man, and woman that do that, are the villains, can you please explain to me, why is that wrong with woman?
