  • Ian Dalziel,

    Acronymble...
    ...and there was me thinking NSFW was shorthand fior National Science Foundation Wankers!

    ..and wasn't Australia originally a Penile Colony?

    I'd always heard that Erotic was using a feather
    and Pornography was using the whole duck...

  • Emma Hart,

    Kinky is that which might unreasonably inspire the same.

    Reasonably, I think the word you want is 'unusually'. I'm not sure about the virtues of describing one sexual more as reasonable and another as not.

    It is too cold for running around unclad, but.

    The neurology of BDSM is really fasinating. We might get there one day.

  • Emma Hart,

    The word y'all were looking for is "nude"

    I find naked sexier.

    Having just popped off to write sex scene, I've come back to this.

    If I'm writing something sort of slow and (forgive) sensual, I might use 'nude'. But if I'm writing something more fast-paced and urgent, I'll use 'naked'. It's that whacking great k sound in the middle.

    Sounds a bit arthouse.

    Hmm, I see what you mean, there's some unfortunate baggage there.

    I was trying for the antonym of, well, a sense where most people would expect the possibility an erotic reaction. Ah, I left out the expected part. No, actually, I just ballsed up the whole thing trying to be clever.

    Never mind me, I failed English for a reason. Do love words, but.

  • steven crawford,

    I didn't even attempt an English exam, but I'm starting to quite like writing in it. I like that word antonym, in which you've used. It's ideal for the engineering workshop environment. Y'know, when you cut two identical shapes, when they're meant to be mirrored. It could also be uses as art speak.

    And the word nude, is made erotically inert by describing it as being in the nuddys. And calling undies grundys, somewhat takes sensual out of undies.

  • giovanni tiso,

    And calling undies grundys, somewhat takes sensual out of undies.

    The Italian for undies is mutande, and I'll admit it's not very erotic. It's an interesting word, though, in that its Latin root (as in the expression "mutatis mutandis") literally means "garment that ought to be changed frequently". My sister was explaining that to my partner a few years back, and Justine - who was just learning the language at the time - thought that she was giving her personal hygiene advice.

    And yet "starkers" lacks that libidinal charge.

  • complacenta,

    on the limits of collective trust
    who shapes and who is shaped by?

    how come this thread seems really
    not to want to 'go there'?

    meanwhile ma islander!
    tell me how to cuss in maorispeak?
    is there any sort of purely lingual temptation therein active
    & sinful at all?

    we spent an entire themester
    trying to 'talk dirty in hawaiian'
    just weren't poosible!
    what gives?

    softly & oftly

  • Islander,

    There arnt swear-words in Maori - but there are deadly insults.
    The most well-known one is "'pokokohua' = (with an essential vowel missing) "cook/ed head.'
    *Any* combination of food & head will -still- be extremely resented.

    They never told us about the grundies aspect of 'mutatis mutandis' when I first heard it at Law School.

    Pity.

  • complacenta,

    doubtless it's 'off-topic'
    but i really dunno *which thread* to tarzan onto rite now!

    but am i really and truly the only one who
    is reading the current msm spiel om MR HIV PREDATOR
    as almost completely inane?

    the guy is credited with
    'infecting (untold punters) with the deadly disease'
    whilst right on over there at western blot test HQ itself
    not a single eager victim has managed to
    "test positive" yet!

    was it a yeti who came their way or what?

    just asking
