Welcome to Words of the Day: Gone Raunchy!
A double ‘d’ edition!
… Double ‘d’, as in double the definitions, of course.
What did you think I was referring to? ;P
Yes, ladies and gents. Today, we’ll be looking at words, phrases and euphemisms that all have to do with… sex!
- “how’s your father” – A euphemism to refer to sexual intercourse
- “the old in-out” – A phrase referring to sex
- “slap and tickle” – Playful sexual activity
- “The Birds and the Bees” – An idiomatic expression/euphemism that refers to courtship and sexual intercourse
The fact that there are sometimes several words – which mean the same thing – that can be used instead of another, is amazing. That, I think, is one of the beauties of the English language.
