Sid the Sexist (real name Sidney Smutt) is a character from the sweary and rude English comic book Viz.
Sid and his mates Baz, Bob and Joe, who are all Geordies (meaning they are from Newcastle) spend a lot of time at the pub, using outrageously crude lines in their attempts to chat up women. In an early issue of Viz, Sid approached a woman with the line: 'How, Pet, my name's, Sid d'ya fancy a f***?' When she answered with a definite 'No!', he continued: 'Well, would you mind lying down while I have one?'
Sid and his mates brag continually about their sexual prowess, particularly the former, whose secret is that he is in fact a virgin, and each strip centres around his struggle to lose his virginity, which he never does (often due to the fact that he still lives with his mother).
These videos are not for everyone due to severe bad language and sexual innuendo but I think they are great. And yes, before you ask, Newcastle does have a large amount of people who are really like this. Just get yourself down to the Bigg Market( Charvers drinking area) on a weekend and you will see hundreds of Sids hanging around and spouting similar rubbish.
If you struggle to understand some of the language here are a few links that may help you out.
