How Slut-o-Meter works:
Slut-o-meter evaluates the promiscuity of the subject you enter by comparing the number of Google search results with and without "safe-search" enabled. A complete slut would return unsafe results and no safe results. Alternatively, a clean name should produce the same number of safe and unsafe results.
The exact formula is here. Applying it to the mysterious word "dustbury," we obtain promiscuity (as of this writing) of 5.42 percent.
(Via Majikthise, which scores 6.02 percent.)
Addendum, 22 December: Frank Wilson (book-review editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer) would like to know: "What can you make of something that rates Henry James sluttier than Tolstoy and Kerouac?" I figure it was transfixed by The Turn of the Screw.

» How Much of A Slut Are You? from Bill Peschel
Charles Hill of Dustbury found he rated a 5.42 percent on the Slut-o-Meter. By comparison, "sex" gets to third base at 50%, "Pamela Anderson" goes nearly all the way at ...[read more]
» I'm 5.08% Slutty from Dr. Weevil
So says the Slut-o-Meter (þ Dustbury). When I do the same calculation through Google myself, I get a figure of 1.49%. The arithmetic is quite simple: the sluttiness quotient is just the percentage of sites found using an unrestricted Google searc......[read more]
donnaville Promiscuity: 27.31% (6800 / 24900)
I am not surprised
Oh dear. "My dog Gabe" has a promiscuity of 12.5 percent. That's a lot higher than even "Wonkette" (8.65). Should I be worried?
I'm sure Ana Marie can take up the slack.
Heh. You're sluttier than I am. 4.4%
Man, I need to get out more.
I was a 7.87. I think any female name will generate big numbers. I ran a couple of friends through it and came up with absurdly high ratings; one of them justifies it and the other doesn't.
Whoohooo...Don't muck with me! nobodyasked scores a 26.99%. Maybe Donna and I need to slut-around together...whatcha say, babe?
My blog's name, "Play One on TV" topped 11%, which I'm sure is entirely due to Paris Hilton's influence (who nets an 84% all by her little, little lonesome). By contrast, my wife's name barely made 4%, certifying her as a Paris Hilton-free zone. Couldn't ask for more!
Ahem... 89.4% for my full name.
Thank you. Thank you very much.
One-point-eight-three. Excuse me now, I must be off to give birth to the Messiah.
Sorry, Mr. Snitch, I must BE the Messiah: 1.49%.
My full name? 0.97% BOW DOWN BEFORE MY NON-SLUTTINESS, YOU CANNOT GAZE UPON MY PURITY!!!!!!
Snitch, Weevil -- y'wanna borrow my National Geographic collection?
Oops, sorry -- Dwayne already took 'em.
The formula is incomplete. I'm sure we must enter the length of blogging into it somehow.
This way my boring 9.09% become increasingly fascinating when you consider I only have 5 or 6 posts on my LJournal so far.
Interestingly, I've been getting a few hits from Wikipedia lately because someone quoted me under 'Clitoris'. (I pointed out that it was not discovered in the 16th century, as some ignorant people allege. The Greeks had a name for it, which was in fact 'kleitoris', so those 16th century anatomists didn't even claim to have discovered it themselves.) I wonder if those account for the 1.49%.
My blog got a rating of 56.68% promiscuous.
I checked www.dawneden.com and it got a rating of 96.44% promiscuous.
There MUST be a bug.
More likely, it's all that horrid Teenwire stuff that Dawn links to.
