What's the male equivalent of 小三、二奶, etc.?

The closest thing I can think of is 小白脸 but it seems to be missing that certain something...

    I just want to mention this question reminds me a very brainwashing, vulgar, meaningless, piratical-like, WTF song 小白脸.

  • "小王" can be used for male as a network neology.

A proper term would be 情夫:


小三 can also be applied to a male as it means the third party in an affair or 第三者.

二公 and 二爺 are informal terms opposite to 二奶.

小白脸 does not necessarily refers to a man who has committed adultery with a married woman. It can also mean the the guy is living off the woman or that the guy has a fair complexion.


Or be more formal, "情夫".

PS: "小三" can also be used for male in theory.
