What is the difference between a whore and slut?

The major difference between a whore and a slut is that, a whore wants sex foremost for financial gain and the pleasure is secondary.

Slut on the other hand wants sex for pleasure and fun, without regard for financial gain. Sluts usually have high sex drives and enjoy sex often, usually with multiple people and many times a day. 

So, a whore is similar to a slut, in the fact she's available for sex with just about anyone who she deems worthy.

If you approach a woman for sex and she tells you how much it will cost she's a whore, and if you approach a woman and ask for sex and she's ready to get naked she's a slut.

In short, a whore is a slut in "business mode".
