RE>Boyer or BOOyer ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Mon, 7 Jul 1997 00:04:22 -0400 From: "William H. Smith" Subject: Golden Oldies When I told my wife that one of my students is using e-mail for a project on terms for the sex act, she asked me to search for terms that were in use in the fifties and have gone out of style. For example, "do it", "do her", could one "do him"? She was shocked to hear her mother say that a plant had "shot its wad", in ignorance of the sexual connotations (although the source of the metaphor is musketry). If you can remember that far back, let us know what you remember of terms for copulation (with restrictions on who could do what to whom) and genitalia. Bill Smith Piedmont College
