The canonical Attention Whore reference picture.

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.

They are looking for their 15 megabytes of fame. They want to be admired, want someone to want them. A lot of them are lonely and starved for attention. A lot of girls think they have no choice but to pose in this way. And then there are the thrill seekers who do it because it's edgy and cool.


ABC News telling it as it is

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

Models and model wannabes are attention whores.
Successful attention whore is successful.

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:

Everybody has that one friend that begs for attention


  • 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.
