Someone with NEXIS or the like could run a search. Or, maybe try looking through old runs of pornographic magazines that would be sure to mention the term and the practice in the 80's or maybe earlier -- if you can bring yourself to do so, I mean.... But not knowing this is perfectly OK, Barry, especially working in traffic court -- combining this with a traffic violation, moving or not, would really take some doing.
