So, which one are you going to use in your next book or sexy conversation?


  1. MsMenozzi

    They’re not as funny, but still very telling! LOL!

    My personal favorite: Downstairs. There’s so much opportunity to abuse that term. bwahaahahaaa!

    Thanks for sharing this – very entertaining. ;)

    Ciao for now!
    Happy TT!

  2. Ella Drake

    These are fantastic!
    Hard to pick a favorite, but I think maybe “Road to a Christening.”

  3. Chris

    LOL these are great! I like, Columns of Venus, it has a nice ring to it.

    Happy T13!

  4. Stephanie Adkins

    Oh my. LOL!! I haven’t heard of most of those. Very … um … interesting. :lol: Happy Thursday!

    I should not have taken a sip of my coffee when I started reading this! :mrgreen: So funny! Poking hole, that is my favorite!

  6. Inez Kelley

    uhm, ew?

    ALthough happy hunting grounds made me snort.

  7. Adelle Laudan

    Happing hunting grounds? LOL You can’t be serious. Hilarious.
    Happy T13!

  8. Alice Audrey

    Inglenook? I had no idea.

  9. Jennifer Leeland

    Serpent Socket?????OMG! That’s so funny.
    And Happy Hunting Grounds makes me think of the Peter Pan cartoon where Captain Hook tells Tiger Lily she’ll never walk the Happy Hunting Grounds if she drowns.
    Um, I wonder if that was some Freudian slip. LOL.

  10. Helen Hardt

    Okay, how did I miss the male counterpart post? LOL

  11. A. Catherine Noon

    Wowsers! Do the residents of Inglenook know its meaning? :eek:

    I love these! Thank you!

  12. Jaime

    LOL, those are great! :smile:

  13. Kaye Manro

    Oh so funny! Have you guys heard of this medieval one? (probably somewhere around 12th century)

    It is the lovely…. Quim… And I did use it several times in one of my medievals. I asked my cp if she understood what I meant, to which she replied, oh yes, I get the meaning quite well. LOL

  14. Sophia Parkwood

    I think Happy Hunting Grounds is the funniest but Serpent Socket is a close second! Happy Thursday!

  15. Shelley Munro

    I actually had a difficult time choosing my favorites. The book has fun cartoons as well, which make me laugh each time I see them.

  16. Heather

    I can honestly say I have not heard any of these before. Definitely imaginative. lol

  17. Amy Gallow

    You missed “The end of the rainbow”

    I have never heard these. Serpent socket is my favorite.

  19. Susan Helene Gottfried

    Oh, geez. This list made me cross my legs without realizing it…

  20. Elise Logan

    Some of these are fabulously funny. “Road to a Christening” nearly made me spew root beer on my computer screen.

  21. Shelley Munro

    Happy hunting grounds cracked me up too. It was fun trying to work out which terms to include.

    Susan – I hear you. I wanted to cross my legs. Actually I kept having visions of an intimate scene with the woman crooning, “Come to my happy hunting grounds.”

  22. Shelley Munro

    Kaye – I’ve heard that term and actually used it in one of my historicals.

    Amy G – That’s one term I haven’t heard before.

    Helen – yes, last week’s TT was the male counterpart. :grin:

  23. Cari Quinn

    Fun hatch? That one alone made me laugh out loud! ;D

  24. Julia Smith


  25. N.J. Walters

    LOL Happy Hunting Ground. Cute!

  26. Gel

    Yowzers! I just discovered “thurs.13” through visiting blogfriends. Terrific post right “up my alley” (ahem *wink*). Only one of these would come to mind for my euphemism list. Great research! This reminds me of what I did with “junk” for Sun. Scribblings” prompt a while back!
    Junk Drawer(s) This looks like an entertaining writing prompt to get my juices, I mean, fingers flowing every thurs! Terrific post! Am bookmarking you.
