    Eschewing the legitimately odd name for a moment:

    You may ask why it is called Gigolo, a strange name for an application. But actually it fits pretty well for what it does: It mounts what it is told to. That's all.

    mounting a horse is analogous to having sex with it, according to the author.
    I would have no problem with it if, the first time I heard of it, it wasn't an open source software geek telling he was forced to rule the software out.
    could I install it on my pious grandmother's computer? in a corporate setting? schools or the UNICEF? in a home for battered women that were raped by their husband, etc.

    it's a shame as I was precisely looking for a piece a software that could mount sshfs shares and can be used under lxde.
    computers making love between them is a nice metaphor, I've used it even. there's a question of whether Gigolo does anal sex and if the recipient is male or female. shouldn't be a big deal, even then why would I prostitute my software, unless I somehow get money from it.

      If it is such a big deal for you then change the name on your installs. It is open source, you know?
