Bardaje means passive homosexual man (bottom in anal intercourse), or as DRAE says, the patient sodomite. The term comes from the Arabic term Bardag, meaning slave boy, which in turn comes from the Persian expression Hardah, meaning slave. Keep in mind that in the Roman Empire the Greek homosexual construction system, teacher-pupil, became in the master-slave system, which socially allows men sodomize his slaves, and generally, homosexual behavior whenever it was active (top in anal intercourse). In ancient times it could also mean prostitute. Slavery, prostitution, childhood, and homosexuality united in a word. It has its equivalent in the Italian language with the term Bardassa and in the Valencian language with Bardaix.
