Most commonly found on the Internets, an Attention Whore is almost invariably a sixteen year old girl who desperately craves attention in any form. The majority of Attention Whores are completely insane and most still attend high school. Most Attention Whores have Histrionic Personality Disorder. Some of them are 300-pound women who think they're cute by dumping crap on other people to massage their flat egos.
While it is widely believed (and hoped) that there is a special circle of Hell especially for Attention Whores, the truth is that their own miserable lives and public embarrassment are a far worse punishment than anything Satan could conjure up himself. The only way to cure Attention Whoredom is to fuck the living daylights out of the subject, or, if they are jailbait and buttugly, hand them over to Pedobear, who will fuck anything that has a small vagina and no tits.
This trait is also the most aggressive form of cancer.
Types of Attention Whore
While anyone can generally be classified as an Attention Whore there are various types of Attention Whoring as well as certain interest groups and communities that revolve almost entirely around Attention Whoring. Here are a few specific examples:
- Cam Whoring - Mostly found on YouTube and Twitch, this form often takes on a literal sense in that money is often exchanged for video.
- FGAS - When fat/ugly people try to garner attention by making themselves look slightly less obvious through selective angle shots/editing.
- Duck face - The most common technique next to forced cleavage and butt bending shots.
- Comment Whoring - Also known as "fishing for compliments" often involves self-depreciation.
- Drama queens - This type seeks attention by being hypersensitive and turning every mole hill into a mountain.
- Prostatots - Latchkey kids whose overly neglectful parents use the Internet as a babysitter.
- Cutters - Physical self-depreciation through mutilation, their self-destructive habits are continual cries for attention.
- Transsexuals - Specifically the transtrender types who seek attention through imagined marginalization.
Attention Whore Tactics
In order to obtain their necessary daily dosage of attention, Attention Whores will employ a variety of tactics. Common examples include:

Beware: If you have sex with one of these people she or he will tell the whole Internets how shit you were, in meticulous detail, even if you're really good. Furthermore, if you end a relationship with an Attention Whore, (s)he may invite the whole world to an online self pity party and reveal to everyone what a evil person you are. Attention Whores can make you lose all interest in the opposite sex and turn you gay. In fact, 98% of gays are the result of dating attention whores.
