Question of the Week: We all know that in romance, authors each have their own unique phrases when referring to those special man and lady bits or the act of those bits getting together. ;) What is one or a few of the silliest phrases you have read?

There are quite a But I have to say up front that the word "penis" during a sex scene cracks me up for some reason. Don't know why....

1. tumescence --- what the hell is that? I have to get out a DICKtionary to look up that one.

2. Impaled her with his shaft. --- Really? You stabbed her? And shaft....the theme music for the t.v. show automatically runs through my mind with shaft. 

3. Cunny.....I'm sorry but cunny is just damn funny.

4. Quim....I still cannot find the definition of this anywhere...and it shouldn't be considered a word if you're playing Words With Friends and it won't even accept it.  Just sayin'.

5. Nubbin---Yet another one of those words that just make me snicker aloud and then this phrase runs through my head -->  "Nubbin says lovin like buns in the oven"...Man, after re-reading this blog post, I think I may be a bit off my rocker, BWAHHHH.

That's all I can think of for now....must update this posting when I run across some more that make me giggle.

What about you? What word(s) or phrases crack you up in a sex scene and should be forever banned?


  1. Oh wow--I haven't came across some of those, thank God, but I'm with you, they shouldn't be used. LOL. And I just can't take the scene series is penis is used. Sometimes I have a problem with dick, too, as, to me, a dick is used to describe a a**hole slimy jerk, not a "love shaft". <---And yes, I have actually seen that one in a few. LOL.

  2. Oh those are good. Quim and Nubbin are my fave out of you list. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed seeing what funny ones were out there and I have to say some just plain scare the crap out of me.

      Thanks for stopping over and leaving a comment. My week has been sooooo damn busy that I haven 't had a chance to check out the other blogs replies...must do that today :)

  3. Cunny! I forgot about that one. I read one book, I think it was The Harlot maybe? It was full of cunny, no lie. I never wanted to hear that word again after reading it! lol

    Thanks for participating in the follow!

      Cunny makes me laugh like a little girl like I used to when I heard the word "Poop" or some other potty
      Yeah, that should be stricken from romance books. It's typical in historicals, so I wonder if that was what the peeps back then called it. Makes me happy to be a modern woman :)
      Thanks for commenting--this was a great question.


I love getting comments...tell me what you thought of my post!
