R110, "nut" is black American slang. I've never heard a white guy say it except humorously.
It is not as ubiquitous among African Americans, however, as "Shit," which is almost universal at the moment of impending orgasm. Well, ejaculation, because withholding overt signs of pleasure also is nearly ubiquitous among my brothers.

Those videos I mentioned above, it was all white guys using the word nut.
Bougie is the most ironic thing. Used by people thinking they're meaning fancy, when bourgeois means 'belonging to or characteristic of the middle class, typically with reference to its perceived materialistic values or conventional attitudes.'

R137, not in my experience, but of course your sample size probably is larger than mine and therefore more accurate.
"Nut" is used by straight black guys, I know, but I've heard it only with conversations among men, not with how they speak in sexual situations. And nothing is meant pejoratively here. I've just found it "annoying" in my own experience.

Annoying only when used in certain ways. E.g., "I find his views on ____ to be very gross."
I doubt that it's only fraus who use the word "gross" in this way.

I’ve noticed black guys being basically expressionless during orgasms, too. Not sure how I feel about that, when I’m getting off with them. It almost “begs the question”… “So, was that good for you, or …?”
I remember when it was primarily black guys who would say it, but it spread to white guys, like so much of black culture does, and now it’s just mainstream among young people. I’ve even seen motherfucking GIRLS use it to refer to their own orgasms. WTF?! You have no “nut,” nor “nuts”, and you’re not “nutting,” you ignorant sluts. I’ve also seen them say they’re participating in “No-Nut November.” Which, first of all, fuck anyone who declares they’re gonna hold off on orgasming for a whole goddamn month — what is the point? If anything, it has a deleterious effect on one’s health to not cum. But girls doing it? Huh? Fuck off!
“Creamy nut” (or “that creamy nut”) is the absolute worst iteration of all.

r168 I first saw the word "zeitgeist" in print in one of Erica Jong's first two novels, "Fear of Flying" or "How to Save Your Own Life," in which she called a character "amanuensis to the zeitgeist." HTSYOL was published in 1977, which date may precede its use in hip-hop.
