madmouth commented on the word backdoor man
I imagine it's used like that in many other Anglophone communities; an obvious metaphor in these timesI'm listening to the Duke these days, and the great Ethel Waters:"ever since time begana front-door woman's had a backdoor man"

bilby commented on the word backdoor man
In Australia I've heard it used a few times in the sense of a man who prefers anal sex. Where that leaves Southern culture (or Australian), or Jim Morrison, is not for me to say.

oroboros commented on the word backdoor man
Wikipedia (and Jim Morrison) sez:"In southern culture, the phrase "back-door man" refers to a man having an affair with a married woman, using the back door as an exit before the husband comes home."See a good, plot-thickening, instance of this in the recently-released movie "Married Life".
