Euphemisms for Naughty Bits...British Edition
Um. Sexy bits and sexy descriptions are not my forte. I tend to stick with pretty straightforward description. And I do struggle with it, some days. There are only so many ways to describe the male and female anatomy.
But, for your amusement, I've picked up a list of interesting euphemisms from a Dictionary of Slang (British edition, because the Word Whores are classy like that). I was previously unaware of these euphemisms until I spent a good half-hour paging through the site. Being a dumb American, I hope that I cause no inadvertent offense by passing these odd-sounding euphemisms on to an unsuspecting audience.
