She is a very free spirit, but she does some pretty slutty things. Like in "I second that Emotion", when she's at the bar with Leela, she meets Armando and goes to the back seat for some coffee  wink

She is very loyal though, never cheats on her guys.

Maybe in the future our primitive sense of modesty isn't capable of grasping it.

Thoughts?

I'll say undecided, because of the Armando thing in 'I Second That Emotion'
But, once she gets together with Kiff, she's pretty loyal with him.
Yup... undecided.

I was very scared, hoping not to offend someone with this topic. I think it's a pretty open question that needs to be looked at fairly, by the fans.

In "Put your head on my shoulders", it was her who first asked Fry "So, wanna do it?" At that point Fry didn't think about her as a girlfriend.

*Edit: Also, in the same episode, Amy was prepared to have sex with her Valentines date while Fry's head was still attached to her shoulder! That of course, doesn't happen because he gets saved by Leela, and according to me, was the first instance Fry really fell hard for Leela  smile

I'm not offended by the topic, but I think that you could have phrased the question differently.

Anyway, put me down for no.  Amy may be a bit, shall we say, easy; but once she's in a relationship she takes it seriously.  That's not what I'd call a skank or a slut.

Also, here's an observation: Fry gets around a lot more than Amy does, but no one calls him a skank.  Double standard?

That's just 'cause he's stupid.

Keep in mind that, at the time, she was mad at Fry for dumping her.

Nope, the very first was in, 'My Three Suns' when Fry thinks Leela was killed, because of it he crys.
But Leela jumps in and he's happy, so in a much more funny note, everyone gets to kick the crap outta him!

I think it all actually started with Space Pilot 3000. She quit her job simply because she couldn't stand to be so mean to him, and it gradually went up from there in the series.

I think that Fry isn't considered a skank because almost every time he sleeps with someone else they advance on him, while Amy advances on almost everyone. I Roomate, is the only time that we saw Fry being the one trying to go for it.

Fry also tries to "go for it" in Mars University where he asks a girl if she needs an escort for the big keggar.

"Not if you were the last person on Mars!"

Even Petunia in, Put Your Head On My Shoulders, rejected Fry!

Fry is not a slut, just a very lucky idiot.

Wait,since when do "skank" and "slut" mean the same thing?  I thought "skank" meant "dirty, poor hygiene," and "slut" meant "loose, easy to seduce."

I wouldn't say she's a slut or anything, she's just not a very good judge of character, and is really easy to con (hell, even Zoidberg tricked her 8 times in WMIBACIL). Most guys would obviously get the better of her and use her for sex.

However, she WAS a bit borderline in Season 2, but they've definately put that side of her to rest since she's been dating Kif.

Actually, according to Urbandictionary.com, skank seems to mean both.

"an insult for a girl thats nasty/dirty/sluty/disgusting"

But since I don't know how much you can trust Urbandictionary.com I'll just say that Amy is, if you have to lebel her, a "Slut" and not a skank.

She's easy, and dosen't seem to have anything else on her mind than to look cute for boys. Therefore some people might label her as a "slut".

She's not THAT easy. She won't bed just ANY loser... they have to be good looking too.

I really don't think you mean skank... she seems hygenic enough, I suppose...

She ain't too bright. She lives a party/clubbing lifestyle. She knows why kind of man she wants, and usually gets him, no doubt. Is she a slut? No by MY definition... i.e. girl who'll bed ANY one...
Anyway, she was growing out of the whole party thing by the end. Which is sad. At least she still fell over, sometimes...

Yes, she definitely got around in the first 2 seasons. But she did straighten up and fly straight after her and Kif got involved.

Yes, because I wouldn't care if my friend died, unless I had a crush on her.  Right.

I think there are hints of Fry having a crush on Leela as early on as SP3K.  I don't really see it in M3S, though.

Pretty much everyone on the show who isn't married is easy to a degree. ESPECIALLY Fry, Bender and Amy, to a sightly lesser extent Zoidberg and Leela.

I have to vote no. While Amy might've been quick to hit on guys and invite them home to her apartment when she was single, she has been completely faithfull to Kif after they became a couple.

She's young, like to party/have a night on the town and she is very attractive. Naturally she'll come into contact with a lot of men, and the ones she find attractive will most likely get lucky, but as it's been mentioned several times, she does have standards. She's probably turned down her fair share of spleazeballs.

Partygirl? Yes. Likes to have fun? Yes. Easy? Yes, to a point. A "skank"? No.

Re: the title. At least it's not just to gain attention like getak's "Amy Wong. Slut to the extreme!!!1110ne0neone!"  wink

Amy just likes sex a whole lot, and gets it when she can with a nice looking guy. Now that she has Kif, she's faithful to him. So slut and skank? No, just gets around and enjoys it. But...do you think her and Kif even have sex? He seems like he wouldn't...and he thinks Buggalo running by is "making love"...

Well actually, that's not fair. We never see the results with some of these guys. Those we do see aren't much better choices. Season 2 Fry isn't that great a catch. Kif is kinda pathetic, though he has his moments. The rest are probably just looking for a good time.

Not saying Fry isn't a good choice, he has great qualities. We just don't see them in PYHOMS  wink

She ended the date with Chaz before anything happened, and Adlai was way to boring and average to try something like that.

Let's give Leela the benefit of doubt, and assume that she didn't sleep with Adlai or Chaz.

Alkazar tricked her into it.  What he did may not exactly have been rape, but it wasn't that far off.

Can't really argue about Zapp though.  That's bad enough, all by itself.

My opinon can be found at http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/11-000624-1/

To sum it up, I'm no sure what Amy's true personality is/was/will be prior to AMWitM.
She may have been a skank/slut/tramp, she have just been young and naive, she may have just been trying to find someone to conceive children with to please her parents. Nut by the time of AMWitM, Amy was no long a skank/tramp/slut, but was a lonely woman.

don't forget Farnsworth - he couldn't wait to get his hands back on Mom...oh my! So everybody except Hermes is a true red-blooded sex machine , and of course we know very little about what him and LaBarbra get up to once the paperclips are all counted. Oh and Zoidy is the only one who tries and fails to get his male jelly into the right place  flirt
PS Amy is definitely a slapper. There's a very funny panel in one of the comics where she bumps into 3 dorks at the flea market...hahahahaha

See, there's your problem.  You're assuming facts not in evidence.

The only person that we know Amy had sex with is Fry.  It's implied that she's been with a lot of other guys, but we really don't know for certain what does or doesn't happen off screen.  Maybe Amy just has a bad reputation.

Most of the time you have to assume, since a family show like Futurama isn't going to do anything more than suggest at what has happened.

"One thing led to another"
"And then it led there again when we got home"

"Amy and I were just going to go to the back seat of my car for coffee"
"I don't like coffee"
"Neither do I"

Etc.

It may be from a deleted scene, but don't forget:
Bender: You'll be getting a call from my lawyer!
Amy: I hope so, I slept with him last night.
