Definitions

flapper rate
(Noun) (in Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels") someone who provides access to an individual of some importance, either professionally or through networked connectedness

flapper rate
(Adult / Slang)
1. In the 1920s and 1930s, a free-spoken, stylish, hedonistic young woman with short, fringed skirts and short, bobbed hair. The flapper epitomized the emancipated new woman. She had the right to vote like men, she drank and smoked like men, she was daringly outspoken and defiantly sexual, she could chose her own sexual partner and she practiced birth control. See playgirl for synonyms.

Quote: Charles Panati. Sexy Origins and Intimate Things (1998): ' Her figure was defiantly boyish, and by bunching her stockings below the knee she blatantly announced to the world that she wore no corset to hold them up. (...) She commingled sex and love, redefining each. She gained entry into the male world in the guise of a tomboy, playing at men's games while staking out a territory and power base. On the battlefield of the sexes, the flapper was womens Trojan horse.' This trend probably originated from France where a flapper, from the turn of the century to the end of WWI, was a streetwalker who dressed in a short skirt and sported bobbed hair.

2. A penis or flaccid penis. See penis for synonyms.

3. Casual term for the hand or arm.

4. In 19 th century England, a prostitute.
