    In one book (that was soooo awful it was awful), it was described as a battering ram. All I could think was - How the hell did he get his pants on???

    That one made me laugh out loud. Classic.

    Oddly enough, I really like the word "plowed" in a certain context - in the play Antony and Cleopatra, where someone is describing Caesar's relationship with Cleopatra. I think the exact line is, "He plowed her, and she cropped".

    Yes, I was thinking along those lines. I'm pretty sure, without looking it up, that the word f**k was derived from a word meaning basically "to plough a field".

    And on that thought, to be honest I think some of the most common vulgar words are, in the right context, real turn-on words for me. "Please f**k me." Simple, but it does it for me for some reason.

    I always liked it, it's got a naughty underworld feel to it.

    The thing about writing sex -- the same word/phrase/term that one person finds sexy, the next person will find disgusting, and the third find funny as all hell. It's tricky.

    Nothing really gags and disgusts me. Many things make me laugh. Particularly purple prose. I did a really funny set of dirty mad libs once, it was very very fun.

    Another word to call the penis is organ...and yeah, that is what they call it but to put it into an erotic novel for a man "to hold his organ and..." Well, you get it. Scientific words are turnoffs in my book, too.

    Nah, truelyana, this current book I'm reading the hero sounded like a horny virgin. He couldn't get to the woman fast enough, or stop touching. Was kind of uncomfortable for the woman if you ask me. Ha...I wanted to shut the book to give them some privacy.

    This thread is cracking me up. I thought battering ram was pretty much the end all - but I was wrong.

    Hmm.... plowed seems a bit impersonal to me, but not really squicky. I think of that as a wham-bam-thank you-ma'am type roll, roll, roll in zee hay.

    Fair enough, I quite like the sound of Horny virgin now to come to think of it. I understand if the story was making it sound uncomfortable for the woman, it's interesting when it does that. Brings the story to life.

    Throbbing manhood.

    A manhood which throbs, makes me giggle.

    Ah yes, the ever present throbbing manhood. Am I the only one who pictures it pulsing, like a cartoon thumb when it gets whacked with a hammer (the thumb, not the manhood)? And has anyone actually ever seen a manhood throb? I image it'd freak the sh@t out of me.

    Spunk.

    Or really, any of the other nicknames for sperm.

    I enjoy the occasional erotica/romance, but its not Hustler, lets keep the trash words out of it.

    Reminds me of one that cracks me up constantly "Love Muscle" There use to be a porn star named "Lance Love Muscle" I can't read anything that talks about his throbbing love muscle without thinking "what twit wrote this" geeze.... OMG I have to go wash now.....

    Hmmm, interesting word selections here. As for me, the number one turn-off word that cools my jets in a heartbeat is 'No'.

    As it should, brokenfingers.

    Another word I came across that left my mouth dirty...

    PRICK. ...as in another name for a man's thing.

    No, and I hope I never do because, like you, I'd run the other way. Ick!
