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.
