From memory, I believe John uses the term slags during his Tom Snyder interview.

“Slag” is an English slang term for a woman of “loose morals”.

When it’s a man of “loose morals”, he’s a stud and patted on the back as a lucky so-and-so.

The tale of double standards.

Thanks for that.  I’ve been hearing the term “slag” off and on for many years.  But I never knew exactly what it meant.  Kind of makes the song a little funnier. 

And it may be a double standard, but it seems to be a double standard that is applied by both genders, not just the men.

To slag or slag off is also a verb meaning to criticise or insult. In terms of grammar that makes more sense but of course I have no way of knowing what they had in mind and in any case the two meanings are not a million miles apart.
