Ask Prudie. No, really, she is the difference.

Having safe sex is being prudent; having no sex is being a prude.

@janbb…or just unlucky.

A prude will not have sex with you; a prudent person will have sex with you with a condom.

Clear?

The first is an adjective (or adverb with “being”), while prude is a noun.

@janbb: That could be a pickup line, “So, whataya say we go be prudent together?”

@cookieman Works for me.

I was once called a “prude” for not allowing myself to “drink myself silly at a bar”.
Eventually that person placing that pressure on me…became an alcoholic!
That was first a “pride” then I was “prudent”.
