I was walking home after having spend the night at my boyfriends today. And it was beautiful outside so I took some pics and uploaded them on facebook saying "advantages of doing the walk of shame early in the morning" it was a joke obviously but my boyfriend was rather upset
He called me saying that it's NOT called the walk of shame if it's your boyfriend, because the walk of shame is something sluts do after a one night stand.
So what do you call it when it's your boyfriend you're walking away from?

That is what I would call walking home... What more is there to it...
Well it depends really, the walk of shame is generally the walk home after having unplanned sex the morning after, wearing the same clothes you had the night before. Whereas most people would say its just some slut walking home after a one night stand, unfortunately they would be wrong.
Technically, if you had sex, and hadn't planned to have sex that night and were wearing the same clothes walking home than that of which you wore when you got to his the night before, then yes it's the walk of shame.
The walk of shame is generally associated with ""sluts"" and being ashamed of what one has done with, most of the time, a stranger the night before and what have you. It can also apply to guys as well, however for some reason it's 100% cool if a guy did it and it's not shame. By definition, its also a walk of shame.
Anyway, I thought the name walk of shame spoke for it self. Walking away shamefully. Your boyfriend was probably upset as he thought you were ashamed of being with him.
So basically if you had sex with your boyfriend, and hadn't planned it before hand and were wearing the same clothes the day after, that's a walk of shame. However it's not always shameful and it's only typically associated with sluts, although covers a lot of other things, like this, by definition.
Hope this helps0
