Sloppy seconds (or slops in Australian slang[1]) is a slang phrase for when a man has sexual intercourse with a female or male[2] partner who already has received another man's penis in the relevant orifice and is therefore wet or "sloppy".[3][4] The phrase buttered bun is sometimes used to refer to said orifice.[5][6] The practice is also referred to as a "wet deck".[7]

The term is used, by extension, to refer to any act of entering into a sexual relationship with a person who had previously been in a sexual relationship with someone else in one's peer group.[8]
