I found these entertaining: 31 Adorable Slang Terms for Sexual Intercourse from the Last 600 Years and 35 Classy Slang Terms for Naughty Bits from the Past 600 Years. My favorites: “fadoodling” (although “play at rumpscuttle and clapperdepouch” is pretty good), “aphrodisiacal tennis court”, and “pioneer of nature”.

Now, unfortunately, I don’t have many opportunities to impress the ladies with my deep knowledge of houghmagandy.

    Is that related to gamahouchery?

    There’s nothing like diving into the centre of something, really pressing on into the roots, for increasing one’s knowledge.

    Some (probably BT) problem means I only get error 502. But does the sexual intercourse collection include hide the sausage?

  3. davidnangle says

    I’ve heard the “ashes hauled” not in irony.

    Silent flute has to be my favorite.

    See longer (and mostly more modern) listings in Kit Schwartz’s books The Male Member and The Female Member – I found “frigamajig” and “the oval office” most striking for the respective anatomiana, and “what mother did before me” the quaintest, ah, conjugation.

    As teenagers my beloved and I came up with the Poffley-Foster General Theory of Wanking Euphemisms. It’s very simple. Any English phrase taking the form of:

    (gerund) the (noun)

    will sound like a euphemism for wanking. Though they do vary in terms of their descriptive or euphemistic power. Famous cases include bashing the bishop and choking the chicken, but any words will do. Though as the gerund takes the noun a a direct object the verb that forms its stem should be a transitive one.

    Egging the General. Painting the Dragon. Sniffing the Curtains. Gritting the Sky. Rotating the Army. All good! We discovered that for some reason ones involving military ranks work well for male masturbation, and anything with fluids or vigorous movement implied shifts it towards the amusingly explicit end of the continuum. Actually “shifting the continuum” is good one too…

    Because why stick with inherited circumlocutions when you can be creative and make your own!

    Thank you for a new word that I never knew before!
    I’d place you in my will, however, that’d only include bills.
