I was watching Couples Therapy on VH1. One of the guys who’s a rapper said that one of the things he liked about his girlfriend is that she is a “clean girl”. I’ve tried looking it up online, but keep getting mixed answers.
I think it means that she’s not slutty.
Darling Husband thinks it means she takes care of herself–like she showers and brushs her teeth regularly, clothes are clean and well taken care of
Internet search also says that it means “goody two shoes”. Meaning follows the rules, doesnt drink or get in trouble
Or could it mean she doesnt have an STD–but how would the guy really know?
Can someone younger please tell me what that means?

I’m 21 and have never heard that term before. I’d guess it’s along the line of straight edge?

@KoiKove: In some circles, doesn’t “clean” mean “hasn’t been in trouble with the law”? (As in “has a clean record”).
ETA: I’ve also heard “clean” can mean “not on drugs” (especially “not on drugs any more”).

I would think that it means that she’s not into drugs or alcohol, but I don’t actually know for sure.

@paula1248: I’ve heard of someone being “clean” meaning they are sober. But in this context it was “Why do you like her?” He said, “She rubs my back and she’s a clean girl”. Not “She rubs my back and she’s clean” which I would take to mean she is sober.
This guy is a rapper, so I cant imagine he likes her because she doesnt drink or do drug. He looks like a heavy partier.

@KoiKove: lol I’m pretty sure he meant “Not slutty” He was mad about her being a stripper in the past when he didn’t know about it. It’s like saying “She’s a good girl.”

I would assume it means that she’s generally your stereotypical “good wholesome” person. No drugs/drinking problems, no trouble with the law, works and does her bit for society.

When I met Mr TTR, he once upon a time in the months afterwards said something similar about me and our hooking up initially
I was a “clean girl”
To him it meant I took care of myself… and in particular my sexual health.
I was knowledgeable about Save-The-Date Cards etc, and I was a girl who didn’t compromise on this front
I was no virgin, but I was selective. And I had standards. And I had RULES that went along with sex.
I laid out the RULES early on. If he was on-side great. If he wasn’t that was ok too. His choice. BUT it meant I wasn’t about to change MY RULES & STANDARDS for him (or any other partner)
Fortunately he wasn’t a “skanky” guy and had standards too… so he appreciated my stance.
Condoms all the way… no compromises.
And we weren’t ditching the condoms or doing anything other than bread & butter sex until we were both checked out and given a clean bill of sexual health
This of course limited some of our fun & games, but we were both ok with that in the interim.

I voted other because I’ve never heard that saying before…

@KoiKove: I would say not on drugs, not an alcoholic and not slutty. Not necessarily a goodie two-shoes though.

Around here it is a mix of everything pp’s have mentioned. Not into hardcore drugs and drinking all the time, takes care of self.. hair/makeup.., and not “slutty”.

@KoiKove: I can hardly wait to see what this ghetto-speak means.

@jadlnc: probably it’s relative, in that in some cultures his clean Girlfriend would be pretty out there, but in his world, she’s conservative. Maybe she’s got only two kids from one baby-daddy, that’s clean.
