I've read the various threads on "what's a salty dog", but haven't found a satisfactory answer. I know, for instance, that an easy rider is a man who lives off a woman; I assume a salty dog must have some equally exact definition. But what is it?

I've always heard that it was slang for oral sex... I may be wrong.

A "Salty Dog", also referred to as a "Salty Jack" is a sailor, at least originally. The references being Salt for the sea and Dog or Jack being references to sailing. what it has come to mean, that's anyone's guess. As for the drink? I've heard of a Salty Dog as Grapefruit Juice, saltwater and Vodka. Go fig...

Doesn't every Easy Rider have a Salty Dog that all the women want to lick?

There used to be a restaurant chain called "The Salty Dog" - seafood. I hope tradsteve is wrong.

Always thought Salty Dog just meant rather on the grumpy side. Bob Dylan these days is an old Salty Dog. Jack Elliot is with out a doubt a Salty Dog. Go Ramblin' Man.
